Why All the Excitement Over Poker?

Poker's new upsurge in popularity in is due to televisedshowings of championship poker tournaments, such as The WorldPoker Tour and The World Series of Poker. This has resulted inmillions of people all over the world playing either online orat land based casinos. Even movie stars and professionalathletes are getting into tournament action. This really becameevident when actor Ben Affleck won $356,400 and a tournamenttitle at Commerce Casino's California State Poker Championshipin June 2004.

And big business likes poker too. Bear Stearns estimated thatannual revenue from poker was $4.5 billion in 2003. Anotheranalyst group feels 2005 revenue will exceed $10 billion.PokerPulse.com stated that $200,463,154 .00 was wagered at onlinepoker rooms in a 24 hour period on March 13, 2005.

People see the excitement and money that is involved in pokertournaments by watching poker on TV, which is one reason theperception of poker gambling went from being played in darkrooms to a preferred status. The seasoned professional playersare excited about this as well. They are not winning as manytournaments as they have in the past due to the influx ofmany new players, but they are winning more than even becauseof their levels of expertise at the game.

Plus, the makeup of the top players has been changing. In thepast only people who played for years and built up instinctsfor knowing how to win were champions. Now the newer top playersare highly educated, highly successful and are analytical innature. You will see individuals from top professions likeFinancial Analyst, Rocket Scientist, Attorney, and Mathematicianalong with industry CEO's in the ranks of champion. Peoplelike Phil Ivey and Chris Ferguson who can perform mathematicalcalculations in their heads with ease will be the future.

But not having an Ivy League education won't stop enthusiasticpoker players from playing the game. On a televised episodeof the 2004 World Series of Poker tournament, a former homelessman stated in a game he got off of the streets by learning toplay poker. He stated that he learned the game by losing$1500.00, one penny at a time. (For the record he did not winthat tournament, but did leave Binion's with over $40,000 incash.)

And with the 2003 and 2004 World Series of Poker Championsearning their seats from online poker room tournaments, theInternet will eventually be the main producer of players.A huge number of online poker rooms have been sponsoring seatsto top tournaments with buy ins less than $100, which is a farcry from the standard entry fees for these events at land basedcasinos. So keep an eye on what is going on in the poker world,because the excitement is just getting started!

Why Use an Internet Sports Book to Make Wagers?
Although I started using online sportsbooks almost ten years ago, I still maintained contact with a couple of local books for the express purpose of getting better lines with regard to the local or favorite teams of choice in my neck of the woods, the reasoning of course was so that if I saw "Value" in going against the the local or favorite teams of choice then what better place to get the best line when going against them then in their home area?However, a not so funny thing happened when one of the locals that I was using got crushed one week three years ago and skipped town and in doing so stiffed me for $1200, since that point in time I have wagered strictly online!I have always held the believe that if you want the beat deal available then it would be foolhardy to purchase the first car that you see at the first dealership that you visit, that very same line of logical thinking should be applied to "Sports investment" and of course is the very reason why I personally use four different "outs" as a means of gaining as much of an edge as possible with regard to finding the best line on games that I am wagering on, sometimes a half of a point here or a half of a point there can make all the difference in a winning week versus a break even or losing week.It never ceases to amaze me for example how some people will be totally misers with regard to insisting that any light on in a room with no one in it is a capital crime, these same individuals always seem to be the ones not willing to take the wife and kids to a movie or out to a restaurant for lunch or dinner because they may have to fork over a few dollars on something they consider unwarranted and wasteful.
