Twins Mauer Morneau Lead The Surging Team
Very few teams win 21 of 23 games and still find themselves on the ground floor but that is the case with the Minnesota Twins and the AL Central division. They have won 11 straight but the Tigers and White Sox refuse to let them into the party as we head to the All Star break.
Joe Mauer will part company with his teammate Justin Morneau who was neglected by AL manager Ozzie Guillen when he filled out his all star roster this past weekend. Mauer leads the majors with a ridiculous .391 average and has fought off stomach complications to remain in the lineup. His buddy Morneau has been on fire of late hitting safely in 11 straight games and in 22 of the past 23 games, going 39-for-91 (.429) with 11 homers and 33 RBIs in that span. As mentioned the Twins have won 21 of those 23 games.
The Mets are lucky they are playing in the inept NL East division as they have been less then stellar yesterday. They have been outscored 55-24 in the past 7 games, including Monday's 11-1 shellacking at he hands of the inept Pirates. Pedro Martinez was originally scheduled to start the series opener against the Pirates but was pushed back because of a sore hip. The Mets aren't sure if Martinez will start again before the break but manager Willie Randolph said he isn't concerned about his star right-hander.
The San Francisco Giants have a chance to move into first place in the NL West prior to the break and considering their hitting has been non-existent, manager Felipe Alou must be happy. The Giants, who are 3-2 on their season-high 11-game road trip, will send ace Jason Schmidt (6-3, 2.73 ERA) to the mound in hopes of recording the team's first four-game winning streak of the season.
San Francisco won five in a row last Sept. 16-21.
Schmidt is 0-1 in his last four starts despite a 3.42 ERA and .235 opponent batting average in that span, as the Giants have provided him with just seven total runs of support in those outings.
Two pitchers who are pulling down a lot of jack oppose each other today at Wrigley Field and both have been awful this year. Andy Pettitte and Mark Prior will try and get untracked for their stumbling teams. Pettitte, a two-time All-Star, allowed five runs - two earned - and 10 hits in 6 1-3 innings of a 5-0 loss to Detroit on Thursday. With Thursday's defeat, he matched the nine losses he recorded in 33 starts a year ago. Pettitte has not lost 10 in a season since going 15-10 in 2001 with the New York Yankees.
The left-hander is 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA in his last three starts since a June 13 victory over Chicago. Pettitte allowed one run and five hits in seven innings in that 9-2 victory, and is 1-2 with a 3.82 ERA in seven career starts against the Cubs.
Chicago counters with Mark Prior (0-3, 9.00), who looks for his first win of the season and tries to avoid losing four straight starts for the first time in his career. Prior gave up five runs, eight hits and four walks in 5 2-3 innings of a 5-4 loss to Milwaukee on Thursday.
The 25-year-old right-hander has not made it out of the sixth inning in any of his three starts this season. Prior is 4-4 with a 4.35 ERA in 12 career starts against the Astros.
Mobile Casino Games Part One
Nowadays hardly anybody will be surprised at online games. But the technology forges ahead, now you can play not only at home, but almost in any point of the world. I am talking about mobile casino games. Everybody has a mobile phone (smartphone, PDA, Palmtop Computers), the coverage is increasing, so the possibilities for playing are impressive. Let us have a look what mobile casinos and mobile poker rooms offer us.
Mobile casinos entered the market of mobile games earlier, therefore, there is much more variety here now. Mobile casino games are offered by gambling technology specialists Spin3 (a company that is associated with major casino games software provider "Microgaming"), as well as "Play Tech". So far only a limited number of online casinos with the software of these companies offer mobile casino games, but their number is gradually growing. There are a number of mobile casinos with their proprietary software affiliated to large online gaming companies, as well as independent mobile casinos. It should be stated at once that it is better to play in mobile casinos, which are represented by famous and well known online casinos: it is more reputable, more convenient, more depositing and winning withdrawal options, reliable customer support etc.
Starting to play mobile casino games a player has to open an account in a corresponding online casino. Sometimes it is possible to do it through a mobile phone, but it is more convenient to do it through a computer, the internet and mobile account are the same as a rule. The majority of deposit methods, in particular, all the electronic payment systems, will also work only through a computer client, though, the player can make a deposit from a card directly by means of a mobile phone. Downloading your favourite casino games on a mobile it is also convenient to have a computer at hand - complete a special registration form on the casino web site, enter your phone number, select a country and a game and receive an SMS- message on your phone with the direct link for downloading. Again, in principle, it is possible to open a WAP version of the casino using the mobile and download games directly from there, but it is less convenient. In contrast to an online casino where you can download the whole package of games, games are downloaded here one by one, and the choice is not so wide, approximately ten games: black jack, baccarat, roulette, video poker, keno and various slots. The games are not very big, about 200-300 Kb. It is not difficult to guess that there are certain requirements for your mobile phone. As a matter of fact the majority of contemporary phones meet the mobile casinos requirements. On the sites of mobile casinos it is possible to check whether they will work on your phone.
The game is downloaded, you have a login and a password, the money is on the account and you can start playing. I will only make a remark that for safety purposes in contrast to online casino in mobile phones it is impossible to record the password, therefore, if you lose a phone, casino money will not be lost.
League One Betting Review 1 May 2006
Southend confirmed their promotion to the Championship after earning the point they required in the 2-2 draw at Swansea. The Shrimpers twice fell behind to Rory Fallon goals on 19 and 34 but equalised on both occasions through leading goalscorer Fredy Eastwood after 28 and 63 minutes. The 12/5 draw means Steve Tilson's are four points above third placed Brentford with one game to play.
Colchester are on the brink of automatic promotion after beating relegation-threatened Rotherham 2-0, their third successive victory. An own goal from Shaun Barker after 29 minutes and Mark Yeates on 53 secured an 8/15 home win.
Brentford were frustrated by Hartlepool as the two sides drew 1-1 at Griffin Park. Kevin O'Connor put the Bees in pole position six minutes before the end but Michael Nelson set-up a 14/5 draw with an injury time equaliser.
Huddersfield's hopes of automatic promotion were ended as they lost 2-1 at home to Yeovil. David Graham put the Terriers in front after eight minutes but Phil Jevons ensured an unlikely 41/10 win with a penalty on 66 and winning goal after 72 minutes.
Draw specialists Barnsley recorded their eighth stalemate in their last 11 games with a goalless draw against Bradford. Shrewd punters will have eagerly snapped up the 11/4 on offer.
Nottingham Forest's late bid for a play-off place will be decided on the final day of the season after they were held 1-1 at home to Bournemouth at 3/1 odds. Steve Fletcher gave the Cherries the lead after 48 minutes but Nathan Tyson levelled on 56.
Doncaster kept their outside chances of snatching the final play-off berth alive with a 1-0 win against Oldham. James Coppinger struck the decisive goal for 11/10 Rovers after 66 minutes.
Bristol City's hopes of reaching the play-offs ended as they drew 1-1 with local rivals Swindon, a result which relegated Iffy Onoura's side. Former City winger Aaron Brown gave Swindon the lead four minutes into the second half but David Cotterill levelled on 68 to set-up a 10/3 draw.
Milton Keynes Dons survival battle will be decided on the final match of the season as they crashed 2-1 against Tranmere.

With the match heading for a draw Delroy Facey struck a 23/10 winner late in stoppage time.

Pilkington put the Valiants ahead after 15 minutes and Michael Cummins sealed an 11/10 home win with nine minutes remaining.
Betting Mlb Ballpark Figures Keeps Betting Totals In Perspective
A few years back we wrote an article on the importance of evaluating how teams hit left-handed and right-handed pitchers. In summary, we surmised it was important, yet keeping in perspective, we demonstrated how the numbers can be greatly affected by random chance. Hence we warned about becoming too dependant on deceptive statistics that are so often fools gold.
We have very similar thoughts about comparing ballpark statistics. There are some stadiums that could be classified as "pitchers' ballparks" while others could reasonably be labeled more friendly to hitters.
Yet again, we have to give props to the four-letter evil empire ESPN. In their fantasy baseball section, they have a straight-forward "Park Factor" that compares that rate of stats at home versus the rate of stats on the road. A rate that is higher than 1.000 favors the hitter, with lower than 1.000 favoring the pitcher.
Still, statistical reliability would assume the quality of the opponent has been equal at home and on the road. Random chance indicates some teams will face or use a disproportionate number of aces and No. 2 starters in one location. This deviation is just one example.
Then there is wind direction. Perhaps several teams have had the wind blowing in straight from center a higher percentage while other squads has an overbalanced number blowing out to leftfield.
Why, according the ESPN Ballpark Factor, is Boston the top hitters' park this year, but was 13th last season?
As of this writing, Rogers Centre in Toronto is the second best pitchers park, yet last year it was a hitters paradise ranking 7th in hitting (24th pitching).
Petco Park is a rare exception. They are currently the top pitcher's ball orchard after finishing first each of the previous three years and third in 2003.
So how do the elite gamblers use the stats? To measure the reliability of pitchers' splits is how we employ them. For example, virtually every Padre is going to have statistically better stats at home than on the road. The fact that Chris Young, Greg Maddux, and
David Wells have significantly better stats at home than on the road proves to be the rule, not the exception. Hence the educated eye realizes there is not an angle in their respective splits.
Yet Jake Peavy is actually a better pitcher on the road than at home. This is an advantage for the gambler. A pitcher's splits are most effective when measured against the ballpark stats.
Is there an edge for the over/under better? Often short-term, but rarely is the edge long-term as the sportsbooks adjust. As of June 19, the Padres last eight road games and 11-of-12 has seen a posted total of 8.0 or higher.
Yet 15 of their last 18 home games have seen a total of 7.5 or lower. Thinking somehow the sportsbooks are oblivious to such angles is one way for a gambler to subsidize bookmakers.
The Park Factor statistic is a valuable handicapping weapon, but more for statistical validation. Those who think they've found the Holy Grail with stadium comparisons are not in the same ballpark as the sharpies.

Poker Starting Hands Winning Table Strategy
Of course anyone knows that a hand like AA is better that a hand like 22. That is the obvious part of the starting hands and the questions is not posed when talking about extremes, it is posed when we are dealing with middle hands that can get us often confused. It is possible that your pocket aces will loose against a worse starting hand. Why? Probably because you were playing against a lot of people and because they played other types of hands with bigger value in hold'em in this situation. It is important to know that hands hold a different value depending on each situation and that it can not be generalized. A good hand when many players are at the table is a hand like 8s9s. Sometimes people find it strange that hands like Ks7s are worse that a hand similar to 8s7s. This happens because they are not looking at all at the value of the hand itself, they are just comparing the numbers printed on each card.
Hands like 10-6s, Q-7s, J-7s, J-4s and K-7s are no good in hold'em. Why a hand like K-7s is such a bad hand is actually an obvious thing. Its chances of actually wining the pot are very low. How can it win actually? Well first you can hope for your king to hit. Not that it is that unlikely but think about it, even if it does hit then what? Then you have a very low kicker for your pair and that kicker will be easily beaten by another hand. Or, you can catch the 7-7 pair but it is a very low pair and most likely there will be other player in the game to top that hand. To get a flush you have low chances. For a straight you would need so many in between cards that it is practically impossible to be the only one with a flush. Two pairs will be possibly toped by a better hand. And so go all the draws for this weak hand. The idea is that if you hold this hand you should fold it or play only if you are in a position and a game that lets you play it very cheap.
Another type of bad starting hand is the Ax off suit when x is a middle card. Middle cards mean below 10 and above 5. The reason this hand is also crappy is quite simple. If the x is not one of the cards above 10 or below 5 them you can't draw for a straight. For a flush you can't obviously draw because the cards are off suit in the first place.
So caution when playing any of these hands. The books say they should not be played at all because they involve a great risk but some situation might arise when you need to play them, but be careful not to pay too much for this.
Beginners Backgammon How Tough Is It
Just how challenging is backgammon to play? It's a question anyone new to the game will ask. Quite truthfully, the game is not that challenging. The basic rules are fairly simple so that anyone can pick up the game. But playing expertly can be a challenge because a lot of the correct plays can be counter-intuitive.
Placement of one's checkers can be essential to actually winning a game, as leaving yourself open to hits isn't very smart. But moving around the board to your home area can take some thinking and good dice rolls. It may sound contradictory, but in the beginning of a game it's must better to leave a checker open to a hit, rather than later. That is because it's much easier to get back on the board and through your opponents home board in the beginning when they won't have many checkers there to block you in as later in the game. This can be determined by odd dice rolls early on and help you later in the game to win by getting past your opponent with those individual checkers.
One thing that is a challenge in the game is setting up a five-point in your opponent's home board (defensive anchor). This is will keep your opponent from bearing in if you can accomplish it. Another good thing about pulling off this move is making sure your opponent can't block you out if they hit you. This move also takes some luck with the dice to only move your two checkers in your opponents' home board to the five-point location however other hit checkers may jump in to help make that anchor too.
On the same note, you will want to get your own five-point filled up to keep your opponent in your home board when you hit them. This won't be as difficult if you have a opening roll of 3 and 1 or if you slot a piece down there and don't get hit on your opponents roll. But trying to do both without losing too many checkers to hits can be hard if the dice are not giving you what you need.
Playing the game will teach you how to win by learning what you can each time. Playing against better players will teach you other ways to win. But these tips can make it easier to challenge the next person you play. And possibly make them wonder just how long you have been playing.
Hold Em Cards Right
Poker has the distinction of being one of the oldest card games around. A universal game that can be played anywhere and at anytime, poker transcends languages and locations, and not just confined to casinos or bars. Its burgeoning popularity has given rise to many different types of poker games such as Texas Holdem, Omaha, Seven Card Stud, Better High-Low Stud and various others. It is one of the most popular online gambling games around, as seen with the huge rise in the number of dedicated online poker rooms and poker clubs.
But before you wear your shades, strap on the green visor and throw down your life's savings, you are going to have to know when to hold'em and when to fold'em. It's probably a good idea when learning the rudiments of the game, to have a firm grasp of the Poker hand rankings and the unique language that you'll hear at the poker table. Burn this information to memory; you'll be glad you did. After all, even though you might be new to this game, there is no need for the other players at the table to know.
Having a strategy going into this game is very important if you want to be taken seriously and convince other players you are the bees knees. So here are some of the basic points you need to keep in mind to keep you one step ahead of your fellow players. The best place to start is at some of the online poker rooms so that you can perfect those skills and variables before playing in the real world
1. When you have a rubbish hand, fold fast.
2. Do not pretend that you are a big spender poker player unless you have the bankroll to back it up. A rule of thumb is that you should have at least 50 times the table limit to play with.
3. If you are lucky enough to hold an unbeatable hand, remember Nicholas Cage in Honeymoon in Vegas and make sure you make the players pay dearly to see it.
4. The first 5/7 cards you receive will be the foundation of your hand. Build your strategy around these. You're not likely to better your opening hand and the odds of improving your hand on the draw are about even.
5. You will soon discover who the strong players are at the table, but it is important that you focus on your own game rather than focusing on trying to beat them. You may risk losing big time if you're not lucky. If you're lucky enough to win, it'll hardly be worth the effort.
7. Commit this to memory: If you can't beat the other hands, don't join them, fold and live to play another day. The table will always be ready when you are. Above all else, try to have fun.
8. Unpredictability can be good. Most pros are able figure out a really loose player by waiting for the nuts and being patient. However, an even easier opponent is a tight player or "rock", who plays only the Group 1 type hands. You need to change your game up, and let them see that you can run bluffs, and play some lower value starting hands as well. These changes should be subtle and shouldn't dramatically affect the flop rate.
9. Always learn from others; never be complacent that you know it all. That just gives other players the chance to take advantage of your weakness.
