Much better than Gran Turismo? SEVEN factors Assetto Corsa might rule on Bitcoin Dice system

 

 

I know what you’re probably thinking: What the heck is Assetto Corsa? Sounds like a fancy ice cream. True, but it’s actually a very fancy racing sim, previously only available on PC. Having won a lot of hardcore racing fans over the past couple of years, it’s finally coming to console with a brand new interface. And, as it happens, I’ve just played an already impressive, pre-alpha version on PS4.

 

At risk of jumping the gun, if I had to say right now how good I think it is, I would say the simulation is the best I’ve ever experienced (though how it’ll work as a long-term console game is something I’ll reserve judgement on). So let me tell you why – from a sim point of view at least, this could leave Gran Turismo and Forza sucking on its exhaust fumes.

 

The Bitcoin Dice setup at the preview event had Thrustmaster 599XX EVO 30 wheels (the Alcantara Edition that’s just like a real Ferrari wheel) plus huge great bucket-seated RSeat RS1s, which obviously helps the sense of immersion. But even just looking at the game on the screen, the movement is that of a real car. The level of grip feels perfect, with an incredible amount of feedback through the visuals and the motors pushing against you in the wheel itself. As a result, despite the massive realism, I didn’t spend all my time falling off the road. I spent it driving around a racetrack. That’s the difference. A massive, massive difference.

 

Ferrari, Abarth and Dallara have used this tech to simulate cars in their own test facility. It’s that realistic. The team is completely enveloped in racing – quite literally in that their office is in the middle of the Vallelunga circuit in Rome. The team can see cars driving down a straight right outside their window. Marco Massarutto, co-founder and executive producer at Kunos Simulazioni told me: “Being on track, we have the chance to stay in direct contact with racing teams, professional drivers and engineers.” It shows.

 

This is the most responsive racing game I’ve ever seen. With the steering wheels set up in front of large, flat panel HD TVs and the game set to helmet cam, you could see journalists’ hands on the wheel right underneath those same hands’ virtual incarnations… and they were almost perfectly in sync. A perfect 1:1 response is technically impossible due to processing in the console and the TV, but only the most violent see-saws are even slightly behind the real-world action here. Seeing as HD TVs have latency anyway, the game itself must be running like lightning. It’s superb – the best I’ve ever seen.

 

Oculus Rift is already supported in Assetto Corsa, and Marco told me that they’ve had the ‘Morpheus’ (as it was then known) dev kit for over a year already. However, the team’s priority right now is to get the console version finished and shipped, so VR compatibility is not something that will be supported at launch. After that, however, there’s more than a good chance that it will be added in via a downloadable patch. But the effect is apparently so good, Marco says Oculus uses the game to demonstrate its technology at events. I don’t doubt it.

 

This is one area that it’s not easy to test in just a couple of hours with a game, but early signs are promising. For starters, after lowering the as-yet-unbalanced difficulty a little, I was just about able to keep up with the 4th-place car around Spa for a couple of laps, getting to within distance of thinking about an overtake, but then making a mistake at Eau Rouge and slamming into the wall. That may not sound fun to you, but for me it’s very promising. I had to work very hard to reel in just one car – something my list of ‘What makes a good racing game?’ made a big deal out of.

 

Speaking of crashing into things, damage was switched off in this pre-alpha version, although the final game will feature both mechanical and cosmetic damage, with slider bars for how realistic you want it to be. Marco told me that the various manufacturers have varying levels of damage they are happy to be depicted on their cars, but it will have some. That’s unavoidable. However, most importantly, collisions between vehicles feel weighty and solid here. Like you’re actually hitting real cars. It’s an incredible simulations of not just cars on a tracks, but cars on other cars.

 

Assetto Corsa can’t compete with Gran Turismo for the sheer number of tracks (or cars for that matter), but it can compete in terms of solidity. Its visual feel is like a new-gen version of Ferrari 355 Challenge – that kind of solid, assured rendering, only in 1080p on PS4 (likely 900p on Xbox One according to Marco, though both will run at 60fps). Best of all, there’s even a 1966 layout version of Monza that you can drive with vintage F1 cars. Where Forza 6 feels like a love-letter to cars, this feels like a love letter to motorsport.

 

It’s already very, very good. It feels like driving an actual car. Whether that’s going to translate to standard PS4 and Xbox One control pads remains to be seen, but with a wheel and pedals, it’s wonderful. It’s unashamedly a simulation of cars, but that simulation is so impressive, I already want just that one Ferrari Fxx K hotlap around Spa in my house. If everything else can convinces console gamers as a video game and not just a technical reproduction of a car, this could be very special indeed when it hits consoles later this year. Keep an eye on it, this could be a real sleeper hit.

Exploiting Opponents’ Weaknesses on casino en ligne francais

 

 

A great deal is made of a skill called ‘game selection’ – being able to select the right game for your level of ability, for your style of play and for the quality of opponents in that game. Whilst game selection is an extremely important part of being a successful poker player, for many, it’s simply not an option. They may only play in a local home game, or they may play in a small casino where there is only one game spread at their preferred limit – they simply don’t have the option to move in and out of games at will.

 

This is a problem but it can be overcome. It can be overcome by realising that, no matter the quality of your opponents, each and every poker player has weaknesses. No one is, or will ever be, weakness-free – not even World Class Players (WCP’s). Game theory shows only a small profit against a very select group of poor opponents, so there is a great deal more to be made in discovering what your opponent/s weaknesses are, and exploiting them to your advantage.

 

This may sound difficult, but you may be surprised at how easy it is. It all boils down to this: people either bet too much, call too much, or fold too much. It’s your job to work out which one of these your opponent/s are guilty of, and take advantage of their mistakes.

 

Many people believe that a game full of ‘rocks’ (people who play very few hands and are, by nature, extremely tight players) cannot be beaten. This is simply wrong. Rocks fold far too many hands. They give up +EV (expected value) for a decrease in variance. This is a clear mistake on their part. If sitting in a game where only 15-25% are seeing the flop every hand, you can make a killing by developing your skills in short-handed play – and by developing solid, aggressive blind-stealing skills.

 

Many people believe that a game full of ‘maniacs’ (people who play, as the name suggests, like maniacs and are extremely loose players) cannot be beaten. This is also simply wrong. Maniacs play far too many hands and, most importantly, they play their hands almost always incorrectly. They are making mistakes left, right and centre. If sitting in a game where four or more players are capping the betting before the flop, simply wait for premium hands and get in there and bet with them – you will get paid off when you get big hands. Don’t get trapped in there with marginal hands or you will be forced to fold – and give up all those preflop bets – when the flop doesn’t hit you. Axs (an Ace with any other suited card) becomes valuable in this game, for the flush potential – in addition, the lone Ace often will be enough as people are playing with such garbage). Remember, the maniacs can’t always have good cards – mostly they are betting with garbage – so when you get a hand, don’t be afraid to bet it and make them pay.

 

Many people believe that a casino en ligne francais game full of ‘calling stations’ (people who never bet/raise but merely call often) cannot be beaten. This is wrong and, as you will find as you progress, this game is the easiest game to play. If you do have game selection opportunities, this should be the game you are looking for. If people are going to call you all the time, you should never bluff or semi-bluff. Bet only for value. And don’t be afraid to lay down your hand if a calling station bets back at you – chances are they have a monster. You can play marginal hands in this game – but try and play them from late position – this way, you can control the betting and get more money in the pot when you want it. The important thing to consider in this game, is that you often need a strong hand at the showdown – so you need to be patient and don’t try too many angles/moves – simply let them pay you off when you hit. Be sure to make them pay you off when you hit. Don’t slowplay too often – just make them pay. It’s that simple.

 

Many people believe that a game full of tight, aggressive, solid players cannot be beaten. They are usually RIGHT. Sorry, I don’t have a great deal of advice for you in regards to playing this type of game – apart from GET OUTTA THERE! You can stay and try and mix it up with the tight, aggressive players but your variance will be huge and it will be very hard to overcome the rake.

 

Many of you will have watched the movie ‘Rounders’. At one stage, Mike says, “When you sit down at a table and can’t work out who the fish are, YOU are the fish!” What he means is: If you sit down at a table and can’t work out the styles and quality of your opponents, then odds are they will be able to easily work you out, and the odds are stacked against you. You absolutely must be able to determine the playing styles and quality of your opponents. After that, you can determine what strategies or adjustments to your play you need to make to beat them.

 

In summary, no poker player is complete. Not one. Every poker player has weaknesses. True, some have a great deal more than others, but each one has weaknesses. You need to be able to figure out what they are, and exploit them to your advantage. Once again, these skills come with practice so get out there and start thinking about what I’ve said – before you know it, you will be saying to yourself: “John’s a loose, passive player who calls far too much on 4th and 5th street – Mary’s a loose, aggressive player who bets far too much with mediocre hands – Phil’s a weak, tight player who folds far too many hands – Peter’s a solid, tight, aggressive player, be wary of him.” When you can think about your opponents in these terms, you are on your way to being one of the better, if not best, players on the table.

Mali Finn Casting are looking for skilled players and dealers to play a part in the movie, no previous acting or movie experience is needed. Males and females of all ethnicities and ages are wanted.

Players and dealers should contact Mali Finn Casting visiting www.malifinncasting.net

 

This movie follows on from the success of many poker films in recent years. Matt Damon and Ed Norton found new fans from the poker world in the brilliant Rounders. Over a decade ago, Australian megastar Mel Gibson had a hit with Maverick alongside Jody Foster. Poker can be traced back in some classic movies such as The Cincinnati Kid, Big Hand For A Little Lady and Sunset Trail.

 

If you think you have got what it takes to follow in the Casino Extra footsteps of the movie stars above, get in touch with Deanna today.

 

The closing date for submission is February 21st.

 

Still in of the notables are Ms Mercier, and Mr Devilfish himself, who is fairly healthy at about 40,000.

 

Play begins at 2pm today.  The next report you read will either have a very happy ending, or a sad one.  Tonight, we play “at least” eight more hours to get down to the final table, which is held Saturday, and being filmed for Eurosport Television over here.  Wish me luck.

Show Him/ Her The Casino Cbet Money

 

 

Movie star and mega-celebrity Tom Cruise has been in the news lately for the goings on with his business partnerships, and his kooky outburst on Oprah Winfrey. He managed to weather the termination of his production partnership, then promptly found someone else to show him the money. But did you know, before he hooked up with Katie “poptart” Holmes, before he was married to Eyes Wide Shut co-star Nicole Kidman, he was married to brunette beauty Mimi Rogers?

 

Mimi, it appears, liked to gamble illegally under age in Tahoe (Nevada, not California like the Contact Music article says). She’s been playing professionally for a while and even won a $900,000 pot once. Don’t these stars have enough money? Leave some for us.

 

Neither Tom nor Mimi, to my knowedge have ever been in a movie about poker, unlike Drew Barrymore, who hasn’t dated either of them. Correct me if I’m wrong 🙂

 

Lucky You – Poker Film Starring Drew Barrymore

 

When my fave Charlie’s Angel, Drew Barrymore, was on set for the poker-based Lucky You movie, she didn’t get to take lessons from poker legend Doyle Brunson. Brunson taught some of the other actors in the film, but Drew missed out because her character was only a lounge singer. Now that filming has finished, she’s getting into the Casino Cbet playing spirit by learning what she can of the game. [via Yahoo! News]

 

Barrymore admits to holding $20 or $100 buy-in games (likely illegal) with friends and members of her boyfriend’s smoking hot rock band The Strokes. Hmm. Boyfriend, huh? I have a long-standing bet with an old friend (hey Razor Nowacki, where are you?) about whether or not I’d have a chance with Drew. My friend said no, but that was a few years before Barrymore was married (really?) to un-funny Canadian comedian Tom Green.

 

While The Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti might be in a hot band, he’s only kinda geeky-cute, I guess. Me thinks Drew likes outcasts who would have been beaten up in high school. But hey – I once drew repeated, longing looks from Alanis Morissette, just before she hit it big, at a record release party for a Toronto band. So why wouldn’t I be able to get a date with Drew? 🙂

Peeling for Cheri Casino Poker?

 

 

What takes nearly 200 disrobing people from a dozen countries eight hours to complete? Um . . . perhaps, but we tend to focus on poker, here.

 

The idea of the largest strip Cheri Casino poker tournament to date was initially to be an April Fool’s joke by Irish bookmaker, Paddy Power. These things tend to take on a life of their own, and—subsequently—the folks at the Guiness Book of World Records were invited to oversee the real thing this weekend.

 

The likelihood of exposure in one’s altogether in the free tournament was no obstacle for the participants; the winner of the Paddy Power World Strip Poker Championship would receive a ‘Golden Fig Leaf’ trophy, US$18,825 cash, a paid US$5,650 buy-in to paddypowerpoker.com’s upcoming 2007 Irish Open, and a mention in the Guiness Book of World Records.

 

32-year-old John Young took home the fig leaf and the money after stripping bare at the tournament’s end; Paddy Power offered to donate US$18,825 to charity if the last one sitting clothed disrobed. (Source: Reuters)

 

Given the above, the advent of a World Series of Strip Poker (no relation to the WSOP) should come as no surprise. Sponsored by Pokerbility, the pot is expected to be a healthy half-million dollars. (Source: Gambling911)

 

Less open to typical Cheri Casino poker players was National Lampoon’s Strip Poker, sponsored by PlayersOnly, the ‘World’s Sexiest Sportsbook.’ National Lampoon refers to the event—held in 2005 in Jamaica—as “Animal House at the poker table.” And they’ve got the DVDs to prove it.

 

Given the paucity of professional poker players present, the Hold-’em event was remarkably successful as a pay-per-view offering. Perhaps it was the strippers.

Student 1xbet poker hits new heights

 

 

With poker being so prevalent on TV, the game’s growth on campus is sure to continue.

 

“I play a lot more now than I used to, probably more than I should!” says university senior Shaun Blum. Shaun plays with his friends at his home game, online and at his local casino card room in Shakopee, Minn.

 

Shaun is not unique amongst campus card players around the world, infact the amount of time spent by him playing poker is almost the norm these days. The growth in poker’s popularity is almost certainly down to television coverage. Right now, three cable TV networks in America cover poker events.

 

The game’s popularity is growing rapidly but Blum insists he grew up around poker and only started taking the game more seriously when several of his friends began playing. “We play together a few times a week” says Blum, “The buy-ins range from $5 to $15, so that’s only for fun really. You can make the most money on the Internet because there are really bad players on there,” he said.

 

Shaun says the most he has won in one night is $400 and the most lost, $150. So without challenging the high 1xbet stake game players, he is comfortable taking a profit from poker to finance his student lifestyle. He goes on to say, “If I ever lose all the money I had in winnings, I’d just quit because that would be really depressing”. For the time being that seems unlikely, as this student, like many others, has a clear grasp of how to profit from poker.

 

 

“Poker on the Road” another for the amateurs and beginners

 

Poker on the Road Recreational Expo and Tournaments

A Texan company, Bledsoe Productions LC of Dallas have announced Reno, Nevada will be the first venue in the series of five “Poker on the Road Recreational Expo and Tournaments” for amateur poker players.

 

Produced by Dynamic Solutions Group of Carlsbad, California and hosted by the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, the first tournament and expo will take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 2-3, 2005 at the Reno/Sparks Convention Center adjacent to the Atlantis Casino.

 

According to organisers the “Poker On the Road and Recreational Expo” series will combine an exhilarating competition of No-Limit Texas Holdem Poker with the excitement of a diverse exhibition of today’s latest recreational products.

 

Over five venues, the tournaments will narrow down thousands of amateur poker players to a table of ten, all vying for the grand prize, a buy into one of the major national poker tournaments.

 

“I truly believe this will afford the social player an opportunity to use their skills to work their way into a major tournament, one that they might otherwise not have the means to do so,” says David Bledsoe, President of Bledsoe Productions and executive producer of the shows.
