It wasn’t long after celebrating Craig Smith’s overtime goal that P.K.“It’s hand-to-hand combat out there.”Subban and the Central Division-winning Predators needed to work overtime just to even things with the Stars at a game apiece, and the Colorado Avalanche got a sudden-death goal from Nathan MacKinnon to tie up their series against the Western Conference top-seeded Calgary Flames.“It’s nerve-racking, but it’s definitely fun,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said.None of these first-round series are going to be easy — even for the Capitals, who will go into a madhouse Monday (7 p.m. EDT, CNBC) for the first Hurricanes home playoff game in a decade.As the series shifts to Toronto, the Maple Leafs will be without center Nazem Kadri for at least Game 3 (7 p.m. EDT, NBCSN), who has an in-person hearing with the NHL’s department of player safety earlier in the day for cross-checking Jake DeBrusk in the face.

And, with the launch of its new consumer flagship P30 Pro, Huawei has revealed the first real competitor to Samsung’s recently launched Galaxy S10.The new bezel-less device series features a less imposing teardrop notch, eschewing the latest trend for pinhole cameras on the screen, but at the rear of the device it is clear that the camera cluster is where the action really is.There are four sensors, each with its own imaginative name, which underline serious intent.The main camera is a 40MP sensor named SuperSpectrum because it has gone for an RYB (red, yellow, blue) array instead of the traditional RGB (red, green, blue) in the sensor.The biggest surprise is the box-shaped periscope X5 SuperZoom optical zoom lens, an 8MP sensor with optics that go inside the phone and which uses a mirror like an actual periscope to give you at least five times the zoom.The new devices also come with a built-in AI movie editor that automatically identifies action highlights and gives users the tools to add background music and special effects, such as time-lapse and slow motion.

Even so, it is especially useful to consider when you're weighing the relative value of following an aggressive betting line as opposed to a passive line.You've gotten heads up against a fairly tight and aggressive opponent.A few other players had been in the hand preflop and on the flop, but they've since folded and it's just the two of you on the turn.You don't know precisely what your opponent has, but from his aggression and his style of play in general, you figure his range to include T-T, J-J, Q-Q, A-K, K-Q, K-J, and maybe K-T. You don't think it includes any 9-x hands.You figure that it would be $150 or so (i.e., half-pot).But when you also considered the additional money you might win on the river (i.e., the additional implied odds), you figure that it would be worth calling.

Digital transformation begins with the customers and staff.AIB has revealed that 1.4m of its customers are digitally active and has devised a new education programme for staff with the Institute of Banking.The course – entitled Digital Banking Revolution – has been developed to educate people who work in financial services on the changing digital landscape within the banking industry.Consisting of six 30-minute online modules, participants who take the course will consider the impact digital has on areas such as customer expectations and experience, conduct of business obligations in digital financial services, security and trust, the digital financial services ecosystem, and looking to the future of the industry.“Technology is now part and parcel of our business, work, personal and social lives, and the way customers engage with and experience banking services is changing rapidly,” said Kevin Gallen, deputy CEO of the Institute of Banking.“The programme was therefore developed around customers, their expectations and needs.

Tens of millons of Americans are expected to scrawl through NCAA Tournament brackets or click through online drop menus in the next week, continuing an annual office or dorm floor tradition that has made all of them sports bettors, unwittingly or not.But sportsbooks in New Jersey, as foreshadowed by Department of Gaming Enforcement director David Rebuck to Gambling.com in January, were planning to their familiarity to indoctrinate a wave of potential new bettors for what is already the most popular sports wagering event in the United States.Ten days before the 68-field team begins play, the rollout has begun.888sport subscribers will be awarded bet tokens for predicting a pre-determined numbers of winners in each round of the tournament: $5 for 6-11; $10 for 12–17; $15 for 18–25 and $50 for more than 25 in the first round.With sports betting legal and underway in Delaware, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and West Virginia, offshore books would figure to lose market share, although that was anedcotally not the case during the second-biggest wagering market of the year, the Super Bowl.According to a 2018 study commissioned by the AGA and conducted by The Mellman Group, “approximately 24 million people filled out nearly 60 million pool entries and spent over $2.6 billion on entry fees for [NCAA] pools.” The question remains whether once-a-year dabblers will remain faithful to their brackets tacked to office cubicles or become semi-regular sports bettors thumbing through prop bets on their phones at lunch hour.

Poker Open is now down to the final six and it is none other than Sean Winter leading the way into the final day.Winter has been the hottest player of the USPO this year and remarkably will be appearing in his fifth final table of the series, having over $400,000 in cashes thus far and 440 points on the leader board, behind only Stephen Chidwick who has 540.The Jacksonville native will be looking to surpass Chidwick tomorrow for the overall lead.He started stacking chips early and as usual talking up a storm in the process of doing so.Elio Fox decided to take a stab at besting Winter in a hand, running his ace-queen into Winter's Big Slick and failing to improve.A star-studded field of players brought out some of the best poker play this week and the other five players to make the final day are not pushovers as Winter will have no walk in the park on his way to victory.

Earlier this month, the much-awaited online poker site, Run It Once Poker finally went live to the public on February 6.The site has implemented some of the most unique industry-first features including an innovative rewards system called “Splash the Pot.”The program rewards all players equivalent to 51% of the rake it collects in the form of randomized amounts of money added to cash game pots which can vary from 1 big blind up to 1000 big blinds.Thanks to the room’s “StreamR program” which rewards poker streamers additional rakeback incentives, Run It Once Poker was able to catch streamers’ reaction as soon as the “Splash the Pot” was triggered.It was during day 2 of the history-in-making $25,000 buy-in PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship when a Vietnamese lady by the name of Thi Xua Nguyen stunned everybody by making this incredible laydown versus Athanasios Polychronopoulos, a Greek-American professional poker player with two WSOP bracelets.220 players remained on the field when Nguyen raised from the button with Ad Qc only to get 3-bet to 37,000 by Polychronopoulos from the big blind who held a pair of Aces.

Rather, it was designed to provide federal enforcement support for illegal interstate sports gambling or, as a House Judiciary report in 1961 put it, to “assist the various States and the District of Columbia in the enforcement of their laws pertaining to gambling, bookmaking, and like offenses…” [emphasis added.]Any confusion about the law’s applicability to gambling beyond sports wagering should have been cleared up during Senate hearings on the proposal when, asked if it applied to anything other than sports betting, the Department of Justice representative unambiguously testified that it “would not cover [other games] because it is limited to sporting events or contests.” This and other evidence is what led the department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) to correctly conclude in 2011 that state online lotteries did not run afoul of the Wire Act because the law applied only to interstate sports betting and—even then—only when such activities violated state laws.But what is worse is the pretzel-logic OLC used to reach this conclusion.Most of the OLC’s textual analysis focuses on the first paragraph of the law which reads:Whoever being engaged in the business of betting or wagering knowingly uses a wire communication facility for the transmission in interstate or foreign commerce of bets or wagers or information assisting in the placing of bets or wagers on any sporting event or contest, or for the transmission of a wire communication which entitles the recipient to receive money or credit as a result of bets or wagers, or for information assisting in the placing of bets or wagers, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.Because the prohibited gambling activities listed in the first clause (in bold) are qualified by the phrase “on any sporting event or contest,” but the prohibitions in the second clause (in italics) are not similar qualified, the OLC opinion asserts that only those in the first clause are restricted to sports gambling while the prohibitions in the second apply to all gambling.
