CARSON CITY — The vision of Nevada casinos of finding a new bonanza by using the Internet to accept bets from other states and foreign countries may have been shot down by the Justice Department.


The Justice Department has issued an advisory opinion that the federal wire act prohibits communications across state lines or to foreign counties for placing bets.


Chairman Dennis Neilander of the state Gaming Control Board said Thursday the opinion reaffirms the long-held opinion of the Justice Department. The Clinton administration had opposed Internet gambling, and Nevada wanted to see if the Bush Administration held the same position, Neilander said.


At the urging of Las Vegas casinos, the 2001 Legislature authorized Internet gambling in hopes of expanding revenue coming into the state. But there has always been a question whether that would violate federal law.


Assistant U.S. Attorney General Michael Chernoff told Neilander in a letter dated Aug. 23: “As set forth in prior congressional testimony, the Department of Justice believes that federal law prohibits gambling over the Internet, including casino-style UFABet gambling.”


Bill Bible, president of the Nevada Resort Association, said this opinion was not unexpected.


While he was a member of the National Gambling Commission, Bible said, the Justice Department held that view.


He said the industry approached the Legislature to get clearance in case the federal government changed its mind so that Nevada casinos would not be left “in the dust,” he said.


Bible said there are bills in Congress that seek to clarify the law. He said he expected the federal law to be clarified by the courts, where several cases are pending.


The control board has delayed any action on Internet gambling until it gets a clear picture of what the Department of …


Every once in a while a blackjack player will come across a game with odd rules where one doesn’t immediately know the correct basic strategy. For example, one might be playing the liberal rules game at the Las Vegas Club on Fremont St. that allows the player to double on any three or four cards and provides a six card automatic winner. Just last year I played in a game that allowed early surrender against a dealer ten. And, just how much are those games with bonuses for 6-7-8 of the same suit worth, anyway? When it comes to basic strategy variations, there’s no book like Basic Blackjack by Stanford Wong.


Basic Blackjack is divided up logically enough, starting with an introduction, an explanation and chart of general basic strategy, and an explanation of common rule variations, such as the number of decks or whether the dealer hits soft seventeen. This material is present in all of Wong’s blackjack books, but, by definition, it has to appear here.


Wong then describes some more common, and not so common, rules variations and how they both change the player’s optimum strategy and expectation. Some of these scenarios, like the “No Natural Winner for Dealer” are not that uncommon. As of this writing, the Sundowner in Reno uses this rule. (By the way, do you know the one strategy variation if this is the case?) Some scenarios, such as “split any sixteen” one will probably never see. But if so, Basic Blackjack is the place to find out how that game should be played.


The last three chapters, Tells, Warps, and Other Tricks are amalgamated here from Wong’s now out of print book, Winning ligaz11 Without Counting. Some people have felt that some of the strategies in that book, and …

UNITED STATES – Interior Secretary Gale Norton told Congress she needs time to decide whether to implement regulations proposed by former Secretary Bruce Babbitt, which would give this federal official power to approve tribal casinos over a state’s objections. Florida and Alabama had sued Babbitt, and bills to explicitly give or to take away the secretary’s power have failed to pass both houses. The National Gambling Impact Study Commission has come and gone and been forgotten; its Final Report was filled with factual errors. One bill (Kyl) to prohibit Internet gambling, with many exemptions for state-licensed gaming, passed the Senate & another (Goodlatte) passed House committees, but both failed to get two-thirds majority in the House. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled federal laws against casino broadcast commercials were unconstitutional; state prohibitions may still be valid. Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has so far stopped bills to outlaw legal sports betting.

* ALABAMA – The Seminole case began when the Poarch Band of Creek Indians sued the state because the Governor refused to negotiate for casinos. The U.S. Supreme Court: 1) ruled a state could not be sued without its consent, but 2) refused to decide whether the Secretary of the Interior could make the gaming regulations, leaving tribes and states in limbo. The tribe is operating gaming devices in a bingo hall, while the court fights continue. The state allows slot-like machines in kiddie arcades. Dog tracks and adult arcades have put in machines which pay out coupons. A state judge ruled and Atty. Gen. Bill Pryor opined these are illegal slots; suits are pending. A federal judge has cleared the way for authorities to ban video arcades in Jefferson County. A proposal to give the state’s four moribund dog tracks true video poker machines has been reintroduced, but appears to …

The adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee chaired by Mr Hans‑Joachim Eckert has banned Mr Joseph S. Blatter, President of FIFA, for eight years and Mr Michel Platini, Vice-President and member of the Executive Committee of FIFA and President of UEFA, for eight years from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) on a national and international level. The bans come into force immediately.

The proceedings against Mr Blatter primarily related to a payment of CHF 2,000,000 transferred in February 2011 from FIFA to Mr Platini. Mr Blatter, in his position as President of FIFA, authorised the payment to Mr Platini which had no legal basis in the written agreement signed between both officials on 25 August 1999. Neither in his written statement nor in his personal hearing was Mr Blatter able to demonstrate another legal basis for this payment. His assertion of an oral agreement was determined as not convincing and was rejected by the chamber.

The evidence available to the adjudicatory Pkv Games Dominoqq chamber in the present case was not sufficient to establish, to the extent required, that Mr Blatter sought the execution or omission of an official act from Mr Platini within the meaning of article 21 paragraph 1 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE) (Bribery and corruption). However, the conduct of Mr Blatter towards Mr Platini without a legal basis constituted a breach of article 20 paragraph 1 of the FCE (Offering and accepting gifts and other benefits). Furthermore, Mr Blatter found himself in a situation of conflict of interest, despite which he continued to perform his related duties, failing to disclose said situation and the existence of personal interests linked to his prospective activities, thus violating article 19 paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 of the FCE (Conflicts of interest). By failing to …

You know that the World Cup must be around the corner when a number of football-related movies hit the theatres. No less than four are in the pipeline in South Korea, giving fans who find three games a day broadcast from South Africa not quite enough a chance to satisfy their football cravings.


The two most high-profile of the quartet are already out and these are ‘Dreams Come True’ and ‘The Second Coming: The Moken Tribe’s World Cup’.


‘Dreams Come True’ is a movie in which 2000 hit Joint Security Area (JSA) meets the 2002 World Cup. It follows how soldiers from both sides of the Togel Singapore De-Militarised Zone, that divides the peninsula, attempt to get together and watch South Korea’s famous run to the semi-finals eight years ago.


“There are many great movies about football, “director Kye Yoon-shik when I asked him why he made the film. “’Dreams come True’ is a movie that deals with the Inter-Korean relations through the prism of football and that makes us question what the problem between South and North Korea truly is.”




With North and South Korea both heading to the World Cup for the first time ever, there couldn’t be a better time to release the film – and at least that was how it looked until recently.


“It is not good timing to be releasing the movie due to the current tensions between the North and the South right now,” admitted Kye and added, “but in 2009 when I started making this movie, we were planning to release it before the 2010. I had no choice but to follow the schedule for the movie distribution.”


The film’s message is not hard to guess and it is a positive one.…

Film fans of a certain age will always see the three Star Wars movies made in the seventies and eighties as the definitive trilogy and not the one which kicked off in 1999 with ‘The Phantom Menace.’ There can be little debate about that.


Not so about South Korean star Lee Chun-soo who has been more of a phantom than a menace over the past year. No other player that originates from the Land of the Morning Calm provokes such debate and divides opinions.


Over the past few years his career recalls the Situs Judi Qq Online Terpercaya words of a certain Jedi Master Yoda who said upon meeting Luke Skywalker: “This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. What he was doing.”


Lee always seems to know where he would like to play in the future but is often less sure about the place where he plies his trade at any given moment. Around 18 months ago, the 2002 and 2006 World Cup star told his K-League club Ulsan Hyundai Horang-I that unless they helped him move to Europe, he would go on strike. The attacker soon got his wish and the only strikes on his mind were those that came from boots left and right.


Joining former European Champions Feyenoord on the last day of the summer 2007 transfer window seemed to be exactly the move Lee wanted –almost. Talking to the Korean version of 442 before his departure, he announced that he wanted to use Feyenoord as a stepping stone to England.


Within a couple of months, he was back home in South Korea, homesick and disillusioned with life in …




Busan boss Hwang Sun-hong

It had to happen sooner or later. It was only a matter of time before one of the 2002 World Cup heroes took the reins of a K-League team. It is perhaps fitting that the man who scored the first goal in South Korea’s unforgettable run to the semi-finals of the world’s biggest sporting event is the first one to try his luck in the domestic league.


Perhaps it is also fitting that the goal, which came against Dominoqq Poland in front of 55,000 delirious fans, was scored at Busan’s Asiad World Cup Stadium. For it is in that same cavernous arena where Hwang will start his coaching career with local team Busan I’Park. The 39 year-old has a tough challenge ahead.


Large attendances are a rarity at the stadium these days as the club has struggled in recent years. Four-time champions Busan may be but the latest came in 1997 and the top has been slipping increasingly out of sight. 2007 saw the south coast team finish next to bottom. It is a long way back to the summit but Hwang, who played over 100 international appearances in a career that spanned 14 years, was the top scorer in Japan’s league in 1999 and played 18 months under Guus Hiddink, has a background that at least provides a well-placed base camp.


On a snowy Seoul morning, I took the bullet train to the meet Hwang at Busan’s clubouse in the north of the sprawling south coast city.


You had a successful time in Japan. What did you learn from the J-League?


Korean and Japan are rivals but their football styles have many differences. In the J-League, I remember feeling it was more technical and nice to watch.

UEFA U21 Championship Group B:


2045 Viborg

“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards'”

– Soren Kierkegaard, 1813-1855


No one wore his heart on his sleeve quite like he did as a player.

Some said he embodied ‘England’ more than anyone since Bobby Moore.

Before a UEFA cup tie with Nottingham Togel Hongkong Forest, in the ‘going over the top’ military speak which English manhood has always drawn on, Stuart Pearce told his troops, who included the Dutch maestro Bryan Roy and the elegant Norwegian playmaker Lars Bohinen,


“Your hearts are bigger than theirs – that’s why you were born English!”

Blond locks and a bulldog spirit, rippling muscles and at the base of a tree-trunk leg a cannon of a left foot which billowed many a net and sent several right-wingers to casualty.


Pearce of England, or should that be Ing-ger-lund.

When the beleaguered Graham Taylor needed a boost, he recalled the out-of-form left-back and made him England captain, demoting his former star pupil David Platt in confident hope that the Wealdstone-born defender’s warrior cult would inspire his struggling team; Pearce would not have been out of place in Beowulf.

He skippered his country but fell short of honours, reaching nothing beyond the European Championship and World Cup semi-finals. But physical retirement only meant a transfer of ambition to the other side of the touchline.

There the similarity with his success as a player began to wane, as it has with so many great footballers. A brief spell with a disintegrating Forest led to an assistant managership spell at Manchester City alongside another English lionheart Kevin Keegan.

Pearce assumed Keegan’s role eventually but City performed without flair or success and he was fired in 2007. …

FootballTrialFinder.com is an exciting new project, which is giving footballers a second chance for Alternatif Bola88.


It is a football consultancy service that has been set up for players who want, and believe that they can become professional and semi-professional footballers.


FTF could be your answer if you want that contract, but this adventure is not just in England, there are opportunities further afield.


It has been set-up by Simon Dent, a practicing FIFA Football Agent, who says: “Everybody deserves a second chance. We don’t promise that everyone will get a contract, but they [the players] will have a platform to show what they can do.”


Simon and his team will use their contacts to give talented and skillful youngsters the opportunity to showcase their ability.


With many youngsters getting released, Dent admitted: “These young lads find themselves without a club, and don’t know who to contact.


“We will be able to point them in the right direction and be able to use our contacts to help get them in front of the right people.”


Whilst they would like to be able to guarantee professional contracts, this is not possible, but FTF will enable their clients to show their ability in front of professional coaches and scouts.




There are three different elements to the project, firstly a ‘CV distribution service’, which will also include help creating the right one that will get them noticed.


Then there is the ‘Professional football consultants’, which will see the organization arrange trial games every two months against a semi-professional side, where there will be numerous scouts in attendance.


The third and possibly most interesting is the ‘Portal for clubs abroad’, this is where teams from different clubs across …
