Cracker is possibly my all time favourite tv show. Loved it.

I guess Nick needs a break. He has done great recently though. Not sure he is maturing, just he is managing to win more so there is less room for self desctruction, but maybe I am wrong!

Andy Murray only has a wild card for qualies this week!

Hi Keith - I have been involved more in crypto, sports betting/DFS and writing/editing since the pandemic stopped live poker in 2020, but I have been playing some poker online too and a bit live. Planning to hit the live tournament circuit again in September.

Plug for my blog that I hardly ever update!

I am wondering how the existing world tour can fine these players. Presumably it can send an invoice, but the players have no obligation to pay? And if they are banned from all future events the money can't be docked from future earnings?

Button ante was ruled out quite simply because in poker you can have a dead button but never have a dead big blind.

people have said this to me, but you can have a hand with no small blind and nobody bats an eyelid. So why can't you just have no ante on the hands where the sb bust in the hand directly before.?

wp Doobs!

The main thing I hate about BB ante is that when stacks are getting a little shorter and tables are breaking it becomes a lottery whether you end up paying two BBS when you move, or you could get lucky and get basically a free orbit. If you have a stack of let's say 10bb then that becomes a massive sweat. That is why I prefer button ante, but I think button ante isn't a thing anymore and for some reason bb ante won. I think of button ante as betamax and BB ante is VHS. Button ante is better but it didn't catch on.

bet against Radacanu today. Her opponent is a very savvy grass player who has some good form this year.

Hope Murray can play without getting injured and make it to the QF vs Novak, but I always worry all those 4 and 5 setters can catch up with him.

Looking forward to watching some matches!

yeah I am not sure I would criticise F1 drivers, if they skip the event, they get 0 points. They had no choice.

Golfers can get in the bin though.

It is also a bit much with the golf European Tour taking the moral high ground when they have held several events in Saudi before.

why is this golf tour when people have decided to draw the line morally? What about the Grand Prix, heavyweight title bouts, lots of other events in other morally questionable countries.

Why do the golfers get it in the neck but Anthony Joshua is fine?

I don't really follow boxing, but pretty sure people have voiced disapproval of many sporting events in Saudi Arabia before.  Both because of human rights, and the war in Yemen. 

The Grand Prix there has been controversial from the start.  Vettel and Hamilton have voiced their unease about racing there publicly.   

https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/saudi-minister-invites-hamilton-to-discuss-concerns/9509380/

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/sport/2022/apr/05/f1-drivers-will-continue-to-speak-out-says-drivers-association-chair

Newcastle have been condemned pretty heavily for the Saudi money and so on. 

I think there is a difference between going there for one race and bankrolling your football team for the year/ running a whole golf tour with Saudi money.   Also it easier to give Hamilton some benefit of the doubt when he has been critical from the start and clearly didn't get input into the decision to race there.  The golfers have taken the decision to earn most of their money there knowing who was bankrolling it.

It is also easier to be critical of the golfers given so many of them were pretty dislikeable in the first place!

All the big names must surely have been set for life already so didn't need the extra millions?  The PGA tour money was already pretty eye watering even without this.

Happy to be not making any effort to watch any of it, and hope it all fails miserably.

Murray looking great today vs Tsitsipas! Was probably going to be at the tourney in Stuttgart but instead I am isolating with Covid Sad

At least I feel fine and I can watch the streams. Will be really interesting if he plays Nick K tomorrow.

what stream were you watching? tomorrows match should be good. A Murray win puts him back inside the top 50

It is on bet365 and some other bookies. Sky, betfair, Paddy? No commentary though.

Bit of housekeeping on this one. Had some family stuff come up and  & can not play. Just about to send refund to Marky and people who bought pieces elsewhere.

what I mean is that there is some good art. But 99% is sh*t. Same for NFTs.

An NFT is often called digital art. My own personal opinion which is probably not shared by many is that art is basically a giant scam. A massive rip off. A waste of time. Useless.

So it follows that digital art would be the same. People get ripped of for paintings and sculptures every day. They also sell for ridiculous prices the same as some NFTs have done (bored apes). So what is the difference? I wonder if David McWilliams has any paintings on the wall of his very nice house. And if he considers himself also exploited?
