Asia Poker – Wizard of Odds

Otherwise, split the four of a kind into a pair in the medium and high hands.

If the medium hand is the same either way, then play the way that results in the best low hand.

The following house way is from the Gold Coast in Las Vegas. I think it started in Atlantic City, and moved its way west. One reader has disputed this rule, so this needs to be verified.The dealer shall set his hand according to the “house way,” which is detailed below.The player’s three hands shall be compared to the corresponding dealer’s three hands. Strategy

Split up the high three of a kind between the low and medium hands.

Five Aces

With a low four of a kind, and two high cards including an ace, play the four of a kind in the high hand.

Otherwise (with no ace/king pair and a high singleton), play the singleton in the low hand, the highest pair in the medium hand, and the other two pair in the high hand.

Full House

One pair

If you can play the four-card hand in the high hand, and a pair in the medium hand, then play that way, except if the pair is aces and the singleton is a not a king, then split the pair between the low and medium hands.

Otherwise, play the pair in the medium hand, and the four of a kind in the high hand.

Introduction

Play the 3rd highest card in the low hand, the 2nd and 4th highest cards in the medium hand, and the rest in the high hand.

With four aces or kings, play three of them in the high hand, and one in the low hand.

Bonus Bet

Four of a Kind and a Pair

In all other situations, play the “usual way.”

Two Pairs

With a three queens or higher, and a high pair, and no high singleton, split up the three of a kind between the low and high hands. If you aren’t sure what to do, I would ask the dealer to set your hand by the “house way.”

With no high pairs, split the three of a kind between the low and medium hands, and play the two pair in the high hand.

With three queens or higher, and the singletons are both low or medium, split the three of a kind into the low and high hands, retaining the pair in the medium hand. With three jacks and two high cards: Play the same way as three 2-10.

With three 2-10: Play the 2nd highest singleton in the low hand, the 1st and 3rd highest singletons in the medium hand, and the rest in the high hand.

Game literature shows four possible pay tables for the Bonus Bet. The following four tables show the probability and return for each one.

St. The joker may be used to complete a straight, flush, straight flush, or royal flush, otherwise it is treated as an ace (the same way as in pai gow poker).After making a wager, the player and dealer each get seven cards.The player should arrange his cards into a one-card low hand, a two-card medium hand, and a four-card high hand.The low hand may not be higher in poker value than the medium hand, and the medium hand may not be higher than the high hand. When I finally saw it at Harrah’s Rincon in California, and the Rio and Gold Coast in Las Vegas, I couldn’t keep ignoring the game.

Four of Kind

With four queens or higher, and a low or medium three of a kind, play the three of a kind in the high hand.

House Way

Four of a King and a Three of a Kind

With QQQ-AAA and one or two high cards: Play a pair in the high hand, otherwise maximizing the low and medium hands.

Three of a Kind and Two Pairs

For purposes of the house way, cards are defined into the following groupings:

With three jacks and no high cards: Play the highest singleton in the low hand, a jack and 2nd highest singleton in the medium hand, and the rest in the high hand.

Otherwise, if the singleton is low or medium, then play a card from the highest pair in the low hand, the medium pair in the medium hand, and rest in the high hand. With at least one high singleton, play the “usual way.”

The game owner tells me the house edge is 4.82%.

If one of the pairs is aces or kings, and the singleton is low or medium, then play a card from the high pair in the low, the other ace or king and the singleton in the medium hand, and the other two pair in the high hand.

A 53-card deck is used, including one joker. Ties shall go to the dealer.If the player wins at least two of the three hands, then he shall win even money on his wager. With an additional high card, play the four-card hand in the high hand.

Three Pairs

Asia Poker is a clever variation of pai gow poker and a Chinese game called “13 cards.” I’ve been getting requests for information about it for years. Flush with Joker

Play an ace in the low hand, two aces in the medium hand, and the rest in the high hand.

Otherwise, split the two pair, playing the highest singleton in the low hand, the low pair in the medium hand, and the rest in the high hand.

With a pair of aces of kings, and no high singletons, split the pair between the low and medium hands, and the three of a kind in the high hand. I have an unconfirmed report that Harrah’s (I’m not sure which one) uses a different house way.

The “usual way” to play a full house is to play the highest singleton in the low, the pair in the medium, and three of a kind and low singleton in the high hand.

If the hand contains a pair inside the four-card hand, and you have an ace, king, or queen and jack, then retain the four-card hand in the high hand. Note that no commission is charged on wins.In addition, a Bonus Bet may be offered, based on the poker value of the player’s seven-card hand. With at least one high singleton, play the “usual way.”

With three jacks and one high card: Play a jack in the low hand, the two highest singletons in the medium hand, and the rest in the high hand.

Save Money: 5 Furniture Shopping Tricks

If you frequently buy previously owned pieces — whether new or old — make sure you get some sort of business insurance, insurance against fraud or cyber insurance policy that protects buyers from fakes or product misrepresentation. “But if [the manufacturer is] not using the right hot glue, or strong wood of a good quality, the piece can weaken.”

3. If you didn’t know any better, you might think the finishes look authentic (cherry, mahogany, walnut, etc). Many wholesalers even include shipping — a huge savings,” she says.

More on MoneyWatch

Furniture can be a big expense — and if you end up with a poorly manufactured piece that falls apart after a short period of time, you can wind up with a big hole in your bank account.

4. All Rights Reserved. Beware of Online ‘Antiques’

Wholesalers who typically don’t sell to the public seem more than willing to sell to the average person these days, says Litwin — particularly fabric houses that sell fairly generic fabrics, like Sunbrella or leather. (Chain stores will typically offer fewer deals in shipping, or do so seasonally.)

Litwin also reminds us it’s important to always pay with a credit card — as opposed to a debit card or wire transfer — so you can stop payment if the item turns out to be a fake, or badly damaged.

Rather than replacing your existing fabrics and curtains, why not give them an makeover by simply replacing their trim? Litwin suggests visiting a fabric wholesaler in your area where you can often find upscale trims at a fraction of the cost at a design center. Update Fabric Trimming

1. Ship in Bulk

Since 2002 the industry has been unregulated, leaving the door open for a great deal of misleading sales tactics.

Online hubs that bring together buyers and sellers are under no obligation to guarantee the quality or condition of antique or vintage, or previously cherished pieces, says Litwin. How to shop smart and save money at the same time? Consumer expert Jennifer Litwin, author of Furniture Hot Spots and Best Furniture Buying Tips Ever, recently shared with me her five best cost-saving strategies for consumers:

Rising gas prices have made shipping costs more expensive, so one way to save is to shop in bulk. is imported from Asia now, explains Litwin — and while the level of craftsmanship has improved, many of these pieces still don’t come with proper labeling that specifies the materials used. If you’re not enough of an expert to recognize the difference, make sure you get a one-year warranty for both the parts and labor.

Last Updated Aug 23, 2011 12:07 PM EDT. And bear in mind that local retail stores have the best shipping prices and many install and deliver free of charge — so weigh shipping costs when you’re comparing online sources with the store down the street. Litwin is soon launching her own furniture company, Certified Gorgeous, which she says will offer various insurance policies to protect buyers.

2. “Your room will take on a whole new look that will stay fresh and current for another 10 years,” she says.

Most new furniture sold in the U.S. “Mixing woods to create particle board doesn’t necessarily weaken the wood,” says Litwin. Otherwise, you absorb all of the risk,” she says.

5. But different manufacturers may define “solid” differently. Don’t Rely on ‘Solid’ Label

If you’re furnishing an entire house, look for a package shipping price for all of your delivered purchases, says Litwin. “These insurance plans protect you in litigation or arbitration. Many pieces are made of a mixture of woods or small pieces glued together, and may crack because the wood may be weaker or not constructed properly. “Call these wholesalers and ask them directly if you can buy from them, and then negotiate the same discounted prices you would at any home furnishings store

Asia at heart of matchfixing, ex-FIFA man says | Reuters

Their responsibility isn’t just to attract business but to properly regulate business,” said Eaton.

“It’s infinitesimal compared to what was made in the Asian market. The three largest houses each transact $2 billion a week – a hell of a lot of money.”

“You have under-regulated, grey-area gambling where the regulators are not really serious, transparency rules are not to best practice and government oversight is almost non-existent.”

SINGAPORE Gambling houses in Southeast Asia form the foundation for organized crime gangs to generate huge profits from sports match-fixing, according to Chris Eaton, ex-FIFA head of security and director of Qatar’s International Centre for Sport Security.

Eaton said that, instead of governments and agencies targeting betting, they targeted corruption in the sport itself, which was simply a means to an end.

Their huge profits made them ideal for exploitation by organized crime syndicates. These online businesses operated as an exchange, rather than a traditional risk-taking bookmakers which would bet against the gambler themselves.

“The grey-area betting businesses, particularly out of Manila, are the biggest concern to us. Today’s gambling institutions most closely resembled international finance, with its banking, derivative trading and commodities trading, according to Eaton, a former Interpol operations manager.

The number paled in comparison to the gang’s profiteering in Asia, Eaton told Reuters in a telephone interview on Wednesday.

The known cases of match-fixing occurred mostly in the West, but the real profits for the syndicates were in Southeast Asia, where the size of the gambling market completely dwarfed that of Europe.

This “grey area” gambling lies between legal betting and “black area” gambling, which Eaton identifies as illegal, cash-based betting with a trusted clientele known to the bookmakers.

The match-fixers were also able to exploit the gambling house system by writing computer programs to place hundreds of bets at the house’s maximum limit in a matter of seconds, mostly while the rigged matches were still being played.

The three largest gambling houses in Asia, IBCBET, SBOBET and 188BET, are all in Manila in the Philippines. or London. Eaton describes their operations as “very opaque” and said what was known of them came purely from talking to people familiar with their workings, as there was no government record.

“If they focused on transparency in gambling houses in Southeast Asia, being able to see who did what, when and how, this alone would have a major effect on addressing the issues of sport corruption,” he said.. Italy was one of the major targets of the match-fixers identified by European police forces, despite having what Eaton considers to be one of the best gambling regulators in Europe.

“This is bigger than Coca-Cola, which is a trillion a year. There’s a lack of commitment. They’re not very easy to disguise, so the fixers have to time it in such a way as to get it past the houses,” said Eaton.

Although recent match-fixing scandals have struck South Korea, China and Italy, corruption in football has long been a global problem.

“If you don’t focus on betting fraud, then you won’t be able to properly address sport corruption. This is a global economy, a growing global economy, and it needs to be regulated and supervised, and governments aren’t doing this.”

Typically this occurred late in the game, to lessen the odds of alerting the gambling house to the fraud.

Because the bookmakers were the ones taking on the risk, there was little incentive for the Manila-based exchanges to work against match-fixing.

To put this into perspective, Eaton said this sum could purchase four international-standard hospitals or pay for a thousand police officers for a year.

Eaton believes that until governments and authorities work to close these lucrative channels of profit for organized crime, match-fixing will continue to be a global problem for all sports.

LACK OF WILL

“There’s no will to regulate gambling houses in Southeast Asia. Sport corruption is borne of betting fraud – it’s a cycle” he said.

“It’s all done with algorithms and machines, almost like any commodity house in the U.S. The other 70 percent is unregistered, often channeled through Southeast Asian websites.

“These are very sophisticated frauds. You can probably multiply that by a hundred,” he said.

Eaton believes the real facilitator of this is the opportunity it provides to commit betting fraud and the susceptibility of the Southeast Asian betting market, where most betting fraud is committed.

“It’s almost impossible to measure how they do business and what weaknesses they have that allow organized crime to take advantage of them.”

The grey gambling market’s lack of oversight undermined the efforts of countries such as South Korea, where 41 players from its K-League were banned for life by FIFA for match-fixing, and authorities have allied with sports agencies and police to combat the corruption.

The international nature of the betting frauds meant the Italian authorities’ supervision ultimately amounted to little when deterring corruption in sport.

European police shone a spotlight on the region on Monday when they announced a Singapore-based syndicate had directed match-fixing for at least 380 soccer games in Europe alone, making at least eight million euros ($11 million).

Eaton estimates that 30 percent of all gambling on sports in Italy goes through registered Italian bookmakers. We don’t know enough about them and the government has an under-regulated environment,” said Eaton.

“It could just as well be betting on tiddlywinks, or on flies crawling up a wall.”

The region’s lax regulation coupled with the sheer scale of the betting market made it far more attractive to people wanting to manipulate it, such as those accused of match-fixing by Europol.

(Editing by Clare Fallon)

BIGGEST CONCERN

Instead they took a commission and farmed out the bets to bookmakers around the world, seeking to make slightly more than a one percent turnover, according to Eaton.

“They’re turning over so much money the organized crime is almost invisible to them,” he said.

Are ‘Mini-Nukes’ The New Big Thing?

Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, asked recently.

But some members of Congress believe conventional weapons could do the same job, and worry that mini-nukes would blur the line between conventional and nuclear weapons. arsenal, the submarine-launched Mk-5 holds eight W88 warheads of 475 kilotons each.

A kiloton is equal to the explosive force of one thousand tons of TNT. Crouch, the assistant secretary of Defense for International Security Policy, said in a briefing last year.

Last year, the U.S. spent more in real terms on atomic defense activities than since 1962.

CBSNews.com’s Jarrett Murphy takes a look at the prospects for the U.S. “nuclear strike capabilities” must be geared towards, according to a leaked copy of the report.

The 1993 low-yield ban that the current defense bill would delete stated that “it shall be the policy of the United States not to conduct research and development which could lead to the production by the United States of a new low-yield nuclear weapon, including a precision low-yield warhead.”

The Foster Panel, which studied the testing issue last year, recommended improvements that would allow a test within three months to a year of deciding to do so. All rights reserved.

But the administration says smaller nuclear arms may eventually be needed to deal with the emerging threat of rogue states hoarding weapons of mass destruction.

“One way you ensure that there are no safe havens is to be able to go deep,” said Armed Services Committee chairman Rep. “Unless we do a lot more research and development and we find some quantum breakthrough in conventional systems, to go deep is going to require a nuclear capability.”

The move to clear the legal hurdles on manufacturing mini-nukes is part of a broad review of U.S.

At the same time, however, last month the United States produced a plutonium pit — the core of a fission bomb — for the first time in 14 years. arsenal. According to Sen. development of low-yield nuclear weapons.

The Bush administration may get permission to create kinder, gentler or at least smaller nuclear weapons if Congress overturns a ban on doing so.

The defense appropriations bill now winding its way through the Hill contains a clause revoking the 1993 Spratt-Furse amendment, which prohibits the development of so-called “low-yield” nuclear weapons – bombs that pack a punch of less than five kilotons.. — did not prohibit designing a testing device with a yield below five kilotons, modifying an existing weapon for safety reasons or conducting research and development necessary “to address proliferation concerns.”

“Nuclear weapons have a unique ability to destroy both agent containers and (Chemical and Biological Weapons),” reads a 2001 Pentagon study.

Nuclear Stockpiles: President Bush has agreed to dramatic reductions in the number of nuclear weapons in the U.S. conducted its last nuclear test in 1992, and while the White House opposes the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty — which the U.S. has signed but not ratified — the administration says it has no plans to conduct a test. Nelson.

Announcing its approval of the bill Friday, the Senate Armed Services committee stressed that nothing in the repeal means it has authorized “the testing, acquisition, or deployment of a low-yield nuclear weapon.”

Defense officials said in 2002 that at present, the U.S could go from the decision to test to a trial run in two to three years. Edward Kennedy, the administration has budgeted $700 million for studying how testing might resume. According to the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the move “restores the nation’s ability to make nuclear weapons,” and was needed so the Energy Department could replace pits found unsafe or destroyed through regular check-ups.

CAROUSEL – People watch as water breaches a rock wall at Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia, Canada, Sunday, August 23, 2009. “If you were to have a problem with a weapon system that you needed to rectify using a test, you would want to be able to do that faster,” J. A bomb of just one kiloton, detonated 30 meters below the earth, can open a crater wider than a football field, according to Princeton physicist Robert W.

Bunker busters — For the second year in a row, the Energy Department is requesting $15 million to study the need for a Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator (RNEP).

Supporters say these weapons might be necessary to deal with so-called “hard and deeply buried targets” in rogue states and terrorist camps, of which there might be 10,000 in the world.

But some experts contend that no bomb of any size could go very deep, because the heavier the bomb, the harder the impact — and the harder the impact, the more likely the bomb would explode before it reached sufficient depth.

Testing — The U.S.

However, the administration is paying increasing attention to the possibility that it might at some point have to resume testing if there were a question about the reliability of the nation’s stockpile. A memo obtained by a British newspaper indicates that at a conference this summer, Defense and Energy department officials will consider questions like: “What is the uncertainty in confidence and potential risk threshold for a test recommendation–what would demand a test?”

“How can we effectively seek to dissuade others from developing nuclear weapons while we are going forward with the development of new nuclear weapons ourselves?” Sen.

I want to know about Nukes.?

Since most of the energy would be released upward into the atmosphere.

Most nukes have a destructive area around 114 sq miles.

About 6 miles out from ground zero.

IE: a 8 MT nuke, would not effect 100 times the area of a 8KT nuke. Radiation effects can extend out 150 miles, downwind, depending on wind speed and direction.

With the MT nukes reserved for hardened targets like underground command post.

.

That’s why most nukes are in the 200 KT to 150 KT range

Larger nukes, do not have a correspondingly larger effective area
