Your Questions About Best Dutch Betting System



Helen asks…

Who was the inventor of Poker?

The man/woman behind the game.

Denny answers:

Hope this helps:

The history of poker is a matter of some debate. The name of the game likely descended from the French poque, which descended from the German pochen (‘to knock’; also means ‘to brag’ in Dutch). Yet it is not clear whether the origins of poker itself lie with the games bearing those names. It closely resembles the Persian game of as nas, and may have been taught to French settlers in New Orleans by Persian sailors. It is commonly regarded as sharing ancestry with the Renaissance game of primero and the French brelan. The English game brag (earlier bragg) clearly descended from brelan and incorporated bluffing (though the concept was known in other games by that time). It is quite possible that all of these earlier games influenced the development of poker as it exists now.

English actor Joseph Crowell reported that the game was played in New Orleans in 1829, with a deck of 20 cards, four players betting on which player’s hand was the most valuable. Jonathan H. Green’s book, An Exposure of the Arts and Miseries of Gambling (G. B. Zieber, Philadelphia, 1843), described the spread of the game from there to the rest of the country by Mississippi riverboats, on which gambling was a common pastime. As it spread up the Mississippi and West during the gold rush, it is thought to have become a part of the frontier, pioneering ethos.

Harry Truman’s poker chipsSoon after this spread, the full 52-card English deck was used, and the flush was introduced. During the American Civil War, many additions were made, including draw poker, stud poker (the five-card variant), and the straight. Further American developments followed, such as the wild card (around 1875), lowball and split-pot poker (around 1900), and community card poker games (around 1925). Spread of the game to other countries, particularly in Asia, is often attributed to the U.S. Military.

The game and jargon of poker have become important parts of American culture and English culture. Such phrases as ace in the hole, ace up one’s sleeve, beats me, blue chip, call one’s bluff, cash in, high roller, pass the buck, poker face, stack up, up the ante, when the chips are down, wild card, and others are used in everyday conversation, even by those unaware of their origins at the poker table.

Modern tournament play became popular in American casinos after the World Series of Poker began, in 1970. Notable champions from these early WSOP tournaments include Johnny Moss, Amarillo Slim, and Doyle Brunson. It was also during that decade that the first serious strategy books appeared, notably Super/System by Doyle Brunson (ISBN 1580420818) and The Book of Tells by Mike Caro (ISBN 0897461002), followed later by The Theory of Poker by David Sklansky (ISBN 1880685000).

Poker’s popularity experienced an unprecedented spike in the first years of the twenty-first century, largely because of the introduction of online poker and the invention of the hole-card camera, which turned the game into a spectator sport. Viewers could now follow the action and drama of the game, and broadcasts of poker tournaments such as the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour brought in huge audiences for cable and satellite TV distributors. Because of the increasing coverage of poker events, poker pros are becoming more and more like celebrities, with poker fans all over the world entering into expensive tournaments for the chance to play with them. This increased camera exposure also brings about a new dimension to the poker pro’s game—the realization that their actions may be aired later on TV.

Major poker tournament fields have grown dramatically because of the growing popularity of online satellite-qualifier tournaments where the prize is an entry into a major tournament. The 2003 and 2004 WSOP champions, Chris Moneymaker and Greg Raymer, respectively, won their seats to the main event by winning online satellites.

Sandy asks…

Stem Cell Research and Alternative Energies? The first great race to the Moon of the millennium?

Will America be able to fake this one now that we’re years behind in research? Will it be to late to sell?

Denny answers:

By your question I believe you are one of those who believe we faked the moon landing. Let me set you straight on this point: We DID land on the moon. Neil Armstrong DID walk on the moon. They DID plant an American Flag on the moon. For you to suggest that this is NOT true insults those brave men who risked their lives to do so. You insult the hard work and dedication of the people who selflessly gave their time and energy to develop the space program. You insult the country.

Just because they faked a few pictures doesn’t mean they did not accomplish the feat. I have never seen Mount Rushmore. I have only seen pictures and drawings of it. I am willing to bet that it really exists.

That said, your question is a very interesting one. I am not sure that we are behind in the research. Just because others are conducting research in areas that we are not does not mean that we are behind. That logic then requires you to assume that those who are researching things other than we are also behind. Thus you are saying that they are both ahead of us in research and also behind us in research. In many areas of alternative energy research we are behind mostly because we are dedicating our resources in areas of research that others are not. For example, recently the University of Oregon successfully completed an experiment on generating energy by using bouys anchored to the ocean floor. The prototype produced three times more energy than they initially anticipated. To the best of my knowledge, nobody else has developed an oceanic system which can produce the amounts of power the U of O did. We are ahead in that area.

In the area of solar collectors, we have just developed a seven layer solar cell that produces almost 20 times more electricity than regular photovoltaics. We are ahead in that area.

In the area of solar towers, the Spanish are considerably ahead of the rest of the world. In the area of wind power, the Dutch are ahead of the rest of the world. In the area of biodiesel, nobody is winning. In the area of hydrogen fuel cells, the Japanese and the Americans are running neck and neck. In the area of hydrogen fuel (not fuel cells) the Icelanders are leading the world. In the area of microwave power, the U.S. Is decades ahead of anyone.

It isn’t that we are behind, it is just that we are concentrating on developing sources that others are not. Others are concentrating on developing sources that we are not.

Thanks for your question. It is good to keep this issue at the front of people’s minds.

Mary asks…

Korean Language Help!!?

I’m planning to work in Seoul (South Korea) when I’m a bit older but I worried about the language barrier! What is the best way to learn the language before I go out there?
(Please help! My future depends on it!)

Denny answers:

It sounds like you aren’t in a rush, Lisa. Your best bet would be to take a Korean class where you can get the real language exposure either with your instructor or other students as well as the study material of a regular language curriculum.

If you do not wish to take a class or are unable for some reason, get some tapes or watch some Korean movies so that you get the sound system straight before you start memorizing and drilling on the common ideas and patterns you expect to need in Korea.

If you’ve studied a non-Germanic European language such as French, Spanish, or Italian before, there’s a high chance you are already familiar with the straight vowels which are so important to speak good Korean.

Prior experience of learning a Germanic language including English, German, or Dutch, which would have gone through the Great Germanic vowel shift in the late middle ages, thus poses much difficulty and little help phonologically by having to deal with messy orthography in terms of the vowels in the alphabet.

English is fraught with diphthongs with very few pure vowels, which makes it very difficult to learn a different language with pure vowels only; this happens to be case with Korean.

Once you are pretty confident with your Korean sounds, you should start drilling on listening and speech.

The labor of memorizing the words and sentence patterns is hard enough; what’s really tough about learning a language on your own is the ‘interactive’ part of the learning process.

Find a setting where you can converse in Korean with a real person even if you opt not to take a class. I don’t know how that could be arranged in your case in particular, but wish you good luck either way. ^___^

Postcript: For your reference, I leave the wiki link for ‘Korean Language’ below, which has further links to useful sites.

Laura asks…

How do I keep a small kitchen organized?

When I moved into my apartment a year ago, the small kitchen didn’t seem like such a big deal because I never cooked that much. Well now i’m on Weight Watchers so I cook a lot of my own meals and I always have too much stuff on my counter. What’s something I can buy or what can I do to keep everything more organized?
Here is a picture.

there are shelves above the stove and fridge but I can’t reach them (i’m only 5’0) and then there is probably about 2 feet more that you can’t see in the picture which is my pantry on the left and more counter space on the right. Also, there is a cutout in the kitchen into the dining room so there are no above cabinets NEXT to the sink. Thanks!

Denny answers:

This is a typical apartment sized kitchen, and I actually love them to pieces. The work triangle is super tight and convenient and everything is just a pivot or an arm’s reach away, I wish I had a little more workspace but the advantage of my kitchen is that I must clean as I go and the mess at the end is always manageable. I have fed up to 10 people out of that size kitchen but now it is just me.

My biggest advice is to keep things simple and use versatile gear. My fav pot is a cast aluminum dutch oven type pot with a lid, that I can use on the stove or in the oven. I use it almost every day. I have a cookie sheet, a 9×13 pan, a couple casserole dishes that double for serving gear. I have a cast iron grill pan, and a skillet, and a small and medium sauce pan. I have minimal storage gear (gladware containers in two sizes). I have 3 good knives, a small and large cutting board. Etc. I keep small small inventories, and I make them work for all my cooking. I don’t have stacks and stacks of table service or silverware. I clean up and reuse my stuff over and over.

Since you mention a bit of a height issue, maybe an important purchase for you is a step ladder, step stool, or maybe just make sure you have a good sturdy chair to help you reach up high. What goes up there is stuff you do not need everyday, baking supplies perhaps, or your extra table service for when you have company, etc.

You might also consider that if you live alone and keep small inventories, there is no practical need for a dishwasher. You have to prewash anyway, you shouldn’t have enough dirty dishes at a time to fill it, and you shouldn’t run it if it is not full. So for those reasons, I do my dishes by hand and use the dishwasher for storage. Do run it occasionally to keep it fresh. You can keep big pots and pans in it, or you can use it for your dishes (like a drainer!) This might help keep things in reach for a shorter person.

I bet you have stock cabinetry which means cut to standard sizes. It isn’t all that hard to live with really. For your pantry items, my current system is to use reusable/disposable plastics. I like the 8 cup size rectangular for most of my canister type items. I can put 10 containers on a typical upper cabinet shelf, they stack in a single layer front to back, 2 high, 5 across with very good use of space. All my ingredients are visible and accessible, safe and sound there. You can store things like rice, beans, flours, pastas, oatmeal, etc. Then I get the small size (24 oz) for things like bulk spices, sesame seeds, etc. These stack 3 high, 7 across a cabinet shelf, with room for a bit behind it.

You may not have much drawer storage. I don’t. You can create drawer storage by stashing things in a basket in your lower cabinets. My real drawers have pot holders/towels, wraps/bags/foils, silverware, and cooking tools. You might assign them differently but that is how it all works best for me.

I would encourage you to plant a small container herb garden somewhere in your apartment, even if you don’t have a window there in the kitchen. You can look forward to several benefits from this: It is a lovely plant that beautifies your home, it freshens the air with natural scent, and offers oxygen to your space. You pick what you need and the rest stays fresh on the plant, meaning you don’t waste…no fresh herbs that rot in the fridge or dried herbs that lose their potency in the pantry. They are also, of course, lovely to cook with, offering you intense flavors and no calories to support your new lifestyle.

Water drinking should be part of your new life, I would get a filter attachment that goes directly on the faucet. It will save space buying bottled water, or pitchers that take space in the cabinet or fridge.

Buy your fresh ingredients in small amounts once or twice a week, so you don’t have to dedicate as much storage space to their storage, or worry that things go bad. As for making the most of refrigerator space…if it isn’t full of food, you can use it to store anything. Your storage ware, your cans of fruit and olives, your stockpiled unopened condiments (separate from the ones in use).

I really enjoy this type of kitchen. I find it really user friendly as long as you keep things simple and keep your mind open to storage options.
