Glossy News Book Showcase 5: Benjamin Cain’s ‘God Decays’

Howard Rhodes, an NSA cryptanalyst, engineered the zombie apocalypse. So said the President of the United States in his shocking final address to the nation, which served as the American epitaph.

Four years later, the old world is in ruins and is stalked by the living dead.

Many survivors keep journals to record their travails in the hope that their lives still matter. Continue Reading

MM: Look, I don’t believe terrorists represent Islam, there are many things they do that contradict the Quran and Sunnah.

Millennials and the Future of Canadian Casinos

Millennials and the Future of Canadian Casinos

Online casino is a growing industry in Canada but changes in how players like to consume their games (and the type of games they like to play) could dictate the overall direction brands like William Hill and Betway develop in over the next few decades. There’s already some evidence to suggest that slot machines, in particular, are dying out. Continue Reading

The Internet is Obsessing over the Trailer for Madonna’s Carpool Karaoke

The Internet is Obsessing over the Trailer for Madonna’s Carpool Karaoke

Madonna may be pushing 60 years old, but that hasn’t stopped her showing yet again that she really can make a splash in the headlines!

The American singer-songwriter is probably best known for the way she’s managed to reinvent herself over the past 30 years of her career and her latest publicity drive is definitely no exception.

Madonna’s Carpool Karaoke Trailer goes Viral

Madonna is appearing on Wednesday night TV’s The Late Late Show, presented by Gavin and Stacey star James Corden, doing a rather impressive Carpool Karaoke segment, and the teaser has sent tongues wagging for all the right (and wrong!) reasons. At the time of writing, it’s #16 on the list of Trending YouTube videos. Continue Reading

Android versus iPhone: Let’s Agree to Disagree

Android versus iPhone: Let’s Agree to Disagree

The Android versus iPhone debate has been persistent ever since the top selling smartphones became contenders. As with many types of technology, there are hardcore brand supporters who will not and cannot be persuaded to try something different. So, while you may already have your mind set on whether or not you will be a lifelong Android or iPhone user, it’s diplomatic to say that we can all agree to disagree; both phones have a lot of great qualities.

Is Craig Wright Really Satoshi Nakamoto?

Is Craig Wright Really Satoshi Nakamoto?

Earlier this year is seemed that a great mystery had been solved and we could finally put a name to the face of Satoshi Nakamoto. Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the unknown person or persons who designed and created bitcoin. Although Nakamoto has claimed to be a man living in Japan, supposition has fallen on a number of computer scientists from the U.S. and Europe as the real Nakamoto. When an Australian academic and entrepreneur named Craig Wright, announced himself as Nakamoto it seemed to be the end of the manhunt, but, over the following days, the proof he offered was torn apart and Wright has since retired from public view before his claims could be satisfactorily proved or disproved.

What’s Next for Wearables?

What’s Next for Wearables?

It’s probably fair to say that wearable technology hasn’t quite taken off in the way Samsung and Apple might have hoped. The Apple Watch, for example, was called “confusing” by The Guardian upon its initial release in 2015 while Samsung’s attempts at cracking the niche are approaching double figures. Continue Reading

Google’s Daydream View Brings VR Home

Google’s Daydream View Brings VR Home

While there is a plethora of Virtual Reality (VR) headsets on the market, the new light, comfortable and stylish Daydream View by Google feels like a game changer.

None of the previous headsets have quite hit the sweet spot in terms of price, comfort and usability, to make VR experiences accessible to the mass market. But Google’s Daydream is considerably cheaper than the Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive, is far more comfortable that Google Cardboard and is for mobile VR, so users don’t require a powerful PC.

The Elite Players in World Poker

The Elite Players in World Poker

It’s no secret that there is a lot of fun to be had with casino games. But the fun only usually comes if you are betting responsibly and getting skilled enough to get to win some games. Whether you’re playing blackjack with coins, roulette with chips or Bitcoin slots, you’ll always want to increase your stack.

In poker, the amount and rate at which players earn money will vary drastically, depending on whether they are playing tournaments or cash games. But there are some players out there who are just plain amazing at whatever medium they choose. 

Following on from our feature of the most successful female poker players in the world, here are the elite players in world poker right now.

Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu was nominated the Global Poker Index player of the decade on the strength of dependably impressive performances on the felt. His largest live cash win to date was the $8.28m he took for finishing runner-up to Daniel Colman in the Big One for One Drop at the World Series of Poker. Negreanu is also the only player to win World Series bracelets in Las Vegas, Europe and Australia.

Negreanu has become a famous figure. This is due to his multiple TV tournament wins and the fact that numerous poker awards have been bestowed upon him. He has been able to capitalise on that success with various promotions and endorsements. As one of the most famous players, he is also one of the most analysed and his style is considered somewhat unconventional and risky.

Not just a Texas Hold’em tournament player, Negreanu places considerable emphasis on the merits of playing many different forms of poker. And he practices what he preaches; he can hold his own against specialists in other poker variants. He has his own website where you’ll find poker tips, videos, a blog, a forum and even a trophy room.

Antonio Esfandiari

One of the most well-liked poker players on the live tournament scene, Esfandiari ‘The Magician’ is known for his extravagant chip tricks. He has appeared on several TV shows and even some movies alongside Robert De Niro, Justin Timberlake and Bruce Willis.

The Iranian-born pro has made six figures every single year since 2004 and has two World Poker Tour titles to go with his three World Series of Poker bracelets. On July 3, 2012, Esfandiari beat 47 other players to win the largest buy-in tournament in history, the Big One for One Drop. He earned a cool $18,346,673 and turned himself into a household name.

His style is very aggressive, with the intention to push the pressure onto the other player and force a mistake. It’s clearly a successful strategy but can mean that Esfandiari is either out on the first day of a tournament or at the final table. There is no middle ground between the two.  

Erik Seidel

Seidel was runner-up to the legendary Johnny Chan in his first major tournament, the 1988 World Series of Poker main event. His final hand that day has become poker legend and was featured in the Matt Damon and Edward Norton movie Rounders.

His best career year came in 2011, with million-dollar prizes on two continents highlighting a prodigious year in which he took home more than $6.5m. Seidel has eight World Series bracelets and is a 2010 Poker Hall of Fame inductee.

He has an adaptive style and reads the game rather than trying to impose his will on the play. It’s made him a consistently big earner on the scene for decades.

Phil Ivey

Dubbed the Tiger Woods of golf due to a similar appearance to the golfer, Ivey first began to develop his poker skills in the late 90s. He also developed the nickname ‘No Home Jerome’ from the ID card he used during his underage playing days.

Ivey has been pronounced as one of the best poker talents around, won his first bracelet in 2000 and has gone on to accumulate 10 World Series of Poker bracelets. Ivey is currently tied with Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan for the second most all-time number of bracelets won. And at the age of 38, he is the youngest player to ever win ten.

In the 2012 Aussie Millions he took A$2,000,000, then in the same competition in 2014 took away the biggest win of his career with A$4,000,000 and repeated the trick in 2015 with A$2,205,000.

Ivey is an aggressive tournament player and will raise a lot pre-flop because he has the post flop talent to read the game and the player.

Week 11: Texas A&M falls. Clemson, Alabama, Michigan Rise

Week 11: Texas A&M falls. Clemson, Alabama, Michigan Rise

The AP Polls are an interesting concept. Think about the fact that Nebraska lost to Ohio State on Saturday Evening. Yet, when the polls came out, the Buckeyes hadn’t moved (Number 6). What does that tell you? It definitely says more than the college football championship lines.

Of course, one might wonder whether any of this even really matters. Because of their performance, or lack thereof, against Ohio state, Nebraska fell 12 spots in the college football rankings. Continue Reading
