Virtual Reality Sports Betting Soon to be a Virtual Reality in Nevada

0

000

Inspired, which is a leading virtual reality sports and mobile gaming company, has announced an agreement with William Hill sports books and the Nevada Gaming Control Board to offer virtual reality sports betting in the Silver State.

Wagers will only be taken at the many William Hill sports books around the state on a trial basis.

Sometime in 2017, sports books all over Nevada will be able to legally offer virtual sports betting. The press release explained the details of the agreement.

“Inspired’s Virtual Sports will be shown alongside live sports in Casino sportsbook areas, and players will be able to place bets in real time via William Hill’s CBS platform both over the counter and via self service terminals.”

In addition, Inspired is currently in talks with a pair of New Jersey casinos (Golden Nugget and Resorts) to bring its virtual reality sports games to the Garden State. It is expected a deal will be made by Spring 2017.

How Can this be Legal?

Sports betting is only legal in Nevada, so there are no issues in the Silver State with legalizing virtual reality sports betting. But what about New Jersey? Many may be wondering how this type of gambling is legal but it isn’t legal to wager on NFL games.

Virtual reality sports aren’t based on actual athletes and sporting events. Federal sports betting laws only apply to real sports. Virtual reality games are grouped the same as online blackjack and slots, which is legal in some states.

Unlike in real sports, the games cannot possibly be fixed by the athletes since there are no real athletes.

When betting on virtual sports, the gambler is, essentially, wagering on a video game. The outcomes are determined by algorithms that use a number of factors to create these virtual games.

The concept of virtual reality sports betting has been popular in Europe for many years. But the industry is entering the United States market for the first time.

Watching the Event Live

Just because the games aren’t technically “real” doesn’t mean bettors can’t watch them live. Most virtual reality games can be viewed just like real sporting events.

You can grab a beer, grill up some burgers, and watch the virtual games you bet on from the comfort of your own home just like a traditional sporting event. The difference is the outcome is determined by algorithms, not real athletes.

Virtual reality has the potential to transform the sports and sports betting industry in the same way daily fantasy sports did.

Harry Reid Alleged Online Poker Bribe Investigation Hits Roadblocks, FBI Denies Probe Stalls

0

Outgoing Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada) may or may not have accepted a $2 million bribe to push through an online poker bill, but in an attempted investigation into the matter, the FBI denies it is blocking any efforts to get to the truth.

22

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah’s Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings is investigating a $2 million offshore payment made to a company with alleged possible links to Reid. But despite numerous attempts to shine a light on the situation, Rawlings has come up short of a definitive yes or no when it comes to a Reid connection.

Reid’s Turbulent Relationship with Online Poker

Over the last few years, Reid has famously flip-flopped on the online poker issue. Despite being instrumental in the regulation of online poker in his home state of Nevada, Reid has since been on the opposing side of the debate.

Initially suggesting he’d support an online poker ban if it was the only way to outlaw online gambling (something he’s always disliked), he’s more recently been on the side of RAWA supporters.

For all his mixed emotions on the topic, it’s Reid’s alleged financial dealings that are now making the headlines. According to Rawlings, there was a failing on the part of the FBI when it came to investigating the movements of a $2 million check from a company linked to Full Tilt.

News of a potential bribery scandal first came to light back in September, but since then, Rawlings has come up against a wall of silence, which has prompted him to question what it all means.

Rawlings Told to Move On

At this stage, there is no evidence to confirm that Reid pushed for online regulation in exchange for money. However, Rawlings has attempted to press on with his investigation, but claims his efforts have been blocked by federal and state forces.

“The Salt Lake office was taking steps to do so, but suddenly they were not,” Rawlings told The Salt Lake Tribune.

With a lack of funding to carry out the investigation, and the FBI rejecting his requests for evidence, Rawlings believes something may be amiss, but Reid could resolve the situation through a “real, vibrant grand jury investigation.

“Harry Reid is presumed innocent and may actually be innocent,” Rawlings told the SLT.

Meanwhile, the FBI and the Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) have issued a joint, and not surprising denial, of stymying anything in the matter. “At no time has the FBI or DPS been asked to back off of an investigation of any public official,” FBI spokeswoman Sandra Yi Barker said in a statement.

Why the DPS, which typically oversees matters such as emergency services, the DMV, and Animal Control, would be involved, is a bit of a mystery in and of itself.

The old saying that there’s no smoke without fire is clearly what’s driving Rawlings in this case, but it certainly appears as though a check was cut and shipped out of the US. Why it was sent and who received it is unclear at this point, and we may never know.

002a7517-800x533-300x200

Andrew Lichtenberger is following in Phil Galfond’s footsteps. The poker pro has launched the Beta version of a play money poker site, and has plans to create a real money version down the road in countries where online poker is legal (hint: not in the United States).

The site, Luckychewypoker.com, is named after his online poker moniker, ‘Luckychewy,’ Galfond announced similar plans earlier in the year but has yet to get a site going. Luckychewy.com is currently open for business in Beta mode.

Lichtenberger, like Galfond, has plans to offer more than just poker games. Lucky Chewy will provide poker training sessions and a social community.

As it stands, only play money games are available. No date has been set on when the real money portion of the site will be launched.

Lichtenberger hasn’t spoken publicly on his specific plans for his new business venture.

“LuckyChewyPoker is a provider of online games and entertainment. Our online system has been tested to ensure a fair experience for all players,” was quoted on the website.

About Lucky Chewy

Lichtenberger, now 29 years old, got his start playing poker online. He was a big winner who then shifted to live poker games. Lucky Chewy has been featured on many televised poker events.

This past summer, he won his first WSOP bracelet in event #52, the $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship. He also cashed in the Main Event (499th place).

Lichtenberger has more than $8 million in live tournament winnings throughout his career. Although arguably his most prestigious win came at the 2016 WSOP, his biggest score was for 1st place in the 2014 WPT Alpha 8’s ($1.7 million. Lucky Chewy bested a final table that included Tom Marchese, Brian Rast, and Bryn Kenney.

Away from the table, he’s a firm believer in the power of yoga. In fact, he wrote a book called ‘Yoga of Poker’ to share his story of self-discovery.

About His Website

LuckyChewyPoker.com will have a team of pros training aspiring poker players. The pros on staff have yet to be announced.

Poker players will be able to enter daily tournaments once the real money poker site goes live. Some of the tournaments planned include a daily 6:00 pm 6-Max Showdown and Daily Bounty Bonanza.

The site also plans to offer a Luckychewy’s International Poker Series (dates and buy-ins have yet to be announced).

A “Coming Soon” note pops up when attempting to join the Poker School. There isn’t any information available on specific classes or poker coaches. For now, the main purpose of the website (real money poker and poker training) remains in the planning stages.

Minnesota Poker Hall Of Fame Inducts New Member

medium_anthonyhartmann2_large_

The Minnesota Poker Hall of Fame announced on Monday that poker pro Anthony Hartmann is its newest member.

Hartmann, who has been a part of the local poker community since the 1980s, has $1 million if lifetime tournament earnings. According to the Minnesota Poker Hall of Fame, he is an “original rounder,” and cut his teeth playing in games with the likes of “Minneapolis” Jim Meehan, Phil Hellmuth and Alan “Big Al” Emerson.

“He has been a tireless promoter of poker who has introduced many of Minnesota’s most successful players to the game,” the Minnesota PHoF said.

Local card rooms spoke highly of the man who has WSOP cashes dating back to 1993.

“He’s the last of a dying breed,” said Michael Hochman, VP of Casino Operations at Canterbury Park. “Here’s a guy who came up from mucking pan in home games, to hustling gin players three times his age, to showing triple-digit tournament success and continued live-poker success, both locally and nationally.”

Hartmann came close to a WSOP bracelet in 2006 when he finished fourth in a $5,000 pot-limit hold’em event for $124,362. The largest score of his career came in the 2007 Gold Strike World Poker Open in Tunica, Mississippi. He finished first in a $5,000 PLO tournament for $147,988.

“When I made the final table in Tunica, I was sandwiched between Chip Reese and Barry Greenstein,” Hartmann remembered. “It was nerve-racking as hell, but what an honor to be able to play with Chip.”

“I’m more about the players than the game,” he added. “I love the characters. And I also love how poker has afforded me the ability to spend more time with my wife and kids.”

Around this time last year, the Minnesota PHoF inducted Blake Bohn and Meehan. Hartmann is the fifth person to join the prestigious club in Minnesota. The other members are Lyle Berman and Mike Schneider.

In order to be inducted into the Minnesota PHoF, one must have “a strong Minnesota connection, either by birth or residence,” “played consistently among acknowledged competition,” “withstood the test of time” and “played at a high level, consistently well, gaining the respect of peers.”

For non-players, the individual must have “significantly contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker in Minnesota.”

Major Vote Coming For Japan’s Casino Plans

bingo-1044718_960_720

The Japanese Parliament is expected to give full approval to a casino bill on Wednesday.

Aan upper house committee approved the plan late Tuesday, in what was one of the final steps for the legislation that has been debated for four years now. The proposal advanced out of Parliament’s lower house earlier this month.

The bill to legalize the casinos doesn’t contain all the details for how the new industry would be regulated, so that will come in additional legislation.

A potential $40 billion a year gambling market is at stake, and some of the most powerful casino developers in the world, including Las Vegas Sands and MGM Resorts International, want to build there.

Tokyo and Osaka are two leading candidates for the Las Vegas-style resorts.

Poker Hand of the Week: Patrick Mahoney vs. Upeshka De Silva

0

unnamed_1

Ask any group of poker players how you played your hand and they’ll come up with dozens of different opinions. That’s just the nature of the game.

Each week, Card Player will select a hand from the high-stakes, big buy-in poker world, break it down and show that there’s more than one way to get the job done.

The Hand

With three players remaining at the final table, Matt Humphrey (7,200,000) folded from the button and Patrick Mahoney completed from the small blind. Upeshka De Silva raised to 685,000 from the big blind and Mahoney called.

The flop came down KSpade SuitCover9Heart SuitCover5Spade SuitCover and Mahoney checked. De Silva bet 535,000 and Mahoney called. The turn was the JDiamond SuitCover and Mahoney checked again.

De Silva bet 905,000 and Mahoney called. The river was the 3Spade SuitCover and Mahoney checked for the third and final time. De Silva then moved all in for 3,840,000 and Mahoney quickly called.

De Silva turned over KClub SuitCoverQSpade SuitCover for top pair, but Mahoney revealed JSpade SuitCover9Spade SuitCover for turned two pair and a rivered flush.

The Questions

What do you think of Mahoney’s overall line? It obviously worked out in the end, but does he call the big river bet if he doesn’t river a flush? Would you prefer a check-raise on the flop, or perhaps the turn after making two pair? What do you think of De Silva’s line? Was he shoving the river for value or was he turning his hand into a bluff? How much did having the QSpade SuitCover in his hand affect De Silva’s decision?

The Aftermath

For his third-place finish, De Silva was awarded with $200,640. With that pot, Mahoney took more than a 2:1 chip lead into heads-up play. Just 30 minutes later and it was all over.

Mahoney’s pocket jacks held up against Humphrey’s AClub SuitCoverKClub SuitCover to give him the title. Humphrey earned $328,320 for his runner-up finish. Mahoney took home the trophy, the title, a $5,000 buy-in into the Hard Rock Poker Open and the $564,227 first-place prize.
