Problem Togel Gambling Runs In Families according to recent study

 

 

Problem gambling runs in families according to a University of Iowa study published online in the journal Psychiatry Research. The study also found an excess of alcoholism, drug disorders and antisocial personality disorder in families with pathological gamblers.

 

This is the first study of its kind to include detailed family interviews of relatives of persons with pathological gambling, said Donald W. Black, M.D., professor of psychiatry in the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine.

 

“Something is being passed along in these families that increases the persons’ likelihood of engaging in impulsive and ultimately self-destructive behavior. In some persons, it manifests as substance abuse, in others as antisocial behavior, and in others gambling, and often the three are combined,” said Black, who has studied pathological gambling for the past eight years.

 

The study consisted of interviews of 31 pathological gamblers and 31 controls, and their respective first-degree relatives (parents, siblings and children).

 

“We looked at first-degree relatives because they theoretically share 50 percent of their genes with the pathological gambler or the control subject. If this disorder runs in families, it is most likely to cluster in those that you share …

Luske handed European accolade ahead of strong opposition

 

 

The Flying Dutchman Marcel Luske has been named ‘Player of the Year’ at the European Poker Awards in Helsinki, Finland. Luske, with a victory in Barcelona amongst six final table appearances in Europe, saw off strong opposition from Willie Tan, Ram Vaswani, Dave Colclough and Lucy Rokach to take the accolade.

 

Finland’s Jani Sointula was handed the title of ‘Rookie of the Year’ thanks to his victory in the Monte Carlo Millions.

 

Swede Martin De Knijff received the award for ‘Best Tournament Performance’, having won a cool $2.7m in the $25,000 Bellagio WPT event.

 

Estonian Andres Burget won the ‘Casino Staff Person’ award for his development of poker in the Baltic States.

 

This was the fourth year of the European pengeluaran hk Awards where Oscar style nominations are supplied by a 20-person panel whose identities are withheld. Sadly there are also no apparent guidelines for nominations and/or the final votes, which is a secret ballot by a named panel.

 

Clearly, for example, Luske’s American exploits (runner-up in 7-card-stud and 10th in the WSOP main event) must have scored heavily as his domestic results were not up to the standard of his rivals. Similarly …

Cold hits, casinoextra.fr Midwest spoons with Hellmuth

 

 

Frigid, heartless winter ambushed the Midwest last week and drove the kind folks of the Northern Plains indoors, looking for action to while away the hours. So they did what came naturally: they tried to cuddle up with the Madison Kid, and player numbers surged on UltimateBet.

 

And the icy temperatures that drove people indoors apparently also drove them straight into the arms of Phil Hellmuth and his home poker site, UltimateBet, with a noticeable upswing in player action from the area being reported.

 

They called it a “Midwestern surge,” but whatever the moniker, UltimateBet was certainly happy about it.

 

“Since winter has finally arrived,” casinoextra.fr spokesperson George MacLean said in a release, “our site has seen a massive increase in online activity.

 

“As soon as temperatures drop and snow begins to fall, our player numbers rise as thoughts turn to Texas Hold’em.”

 

Accounts usually dormant on weekdays were fired up and weekend numbers soared as well, they reported.

 

The reason, they say: Winter poker tournaments and the promise of exercising one’s mind from the warmth of the living room or home office sounded appealing, as hopes for outdoor recreation were dashed with …

WPT American Showdown chericasino.net

 

 

Despite a few good hands, baby Mikey’s general principle is to go in swinging, just about playing everything and bluffing as much as possible. I believe Phil Hellmuth calls this “poker creature” the Jackal. Coach Danny N. tells Joe to move all in on a KsQs against Mikey’s 6h6d, on a flop of Kh,8d,Jd,4h. Joe takes the advice, and Mikey’s face drops, but he calls. The river’s a 5h, and Joe takes it.

 

Mikey gets a KhQs against Carter’s pocket AsAh and Paul Jr.’s 7h3d. The flop is 7c6hAd, to give Carter a trip. Paul’s out, Mikey calls 40K, and Carter’s cool as a cucumber – even when he gets an As on the turn. Four friggin’ ACES. Mikey asks if anyone’s checked Carter’s sleeve, as he goes out in 5th position.

 

Slowfinger Paul Sr. goes all in on AdKh against humble chip leader Carter’s Js6c on a flop of Qs4c6h. Carter folds. Paul Jr goes all in with 10K without looking at his cards. Joe raises, then folds. Carter raises on an open-handed straight draw (9s2s) against 7s,6s,5h,7c and Paul Sr.’s Qc8c. Carter folds, and Poppa Paul wins side pot, then beats Paul Jr. Junior’s …
