Play fresh: Americas Cardroom is the most delicious place for cash game grinders

Remember the old Subway sandwich loyalty card? Each time you bought a sub, you received a stamp. And once you accumulated 10 stamps, you scored a free sub. Then one day back in 2005, Subway announced that they’re ending their loyalty program.
They blamed the cancelation on fraud (people were producing fake stamps to score endless amounts of footlongs), but it seemed unfair to those who rightfully earned free subs by paying for them.
That pretty much sums up what it’s like to be a cash game grinder. You used to get treated well.
You used to earn rewards. You used to be able to use tools to improve your game. Then one day management decided that you don’t deserve to be rewarded for your loyalty.
So they banned things like heads-up displays and hand histories while butchering their rewards program and limiting the number of tables you could play simultaneously.
If you’re feeling like you’ve been scammed by your poker site, check out Americas Cardroom.
There, you can:
• Play up to 24 tables at once to put in the volume you want
• Employ Hand Histories and Heads-up Displays to improve your game
• Benefit like nowhere else through Elite Benefits, Americas Cardroom’s ongoing rewards program that rewards you for your volume
• Profit weekly from The Beast, a points race for cash game players that’s awarded $22 million since launching
And Americas Cardroom is just as good for tourney players. Check out the upcoming $6 Million Venom for proof. It gets underway on November 27 th and promises to outdo the last $5 Million
Venom, which featured a final prize pool of $6,382,400. Get your seat for $2,650 or win your way in. For all the info, head to ACR right now.

Wolves 3-0 West Ham: Sizzling second half at Molineux

Online Betting

Following what has already been a pretty dramatic Premier League campaign, fans could’ve been forgiven for not really knowing what they were going to get from these two sides. They’ve both won plenty of games they were predicted to lose and lose games that seemed slam dunks for them, which is kind of the nature of the Premier League – especially with teams at this level. Both sides harbour realistic ambitions of finishing in the top half, but tonight, it was Wolverhampton Wanderers that were able to impress in an emphatic win over West Ham United.

Hard to call

Both sides came forward in their numbers during the first half, but were unable to break the deadlock. The Molineux faithful were more than willing to be patient, but for a while, it felt like another ‘same old, same old’ against a team they’d usually fancy themselves to beat. Wolves were attempting to push the ball out wide and work their way towards goal that way, whereas the Hammers were trying to push their way through the middle of the park.

The game was goalless heading into the second half, and then around half way through the second half, Romain Saiss scored the first goal of the game with a powerful effort from a set piece. Raul Jimenez, who is turning out to be one of the signings of the season, made it two from yet another corner which almost certainly would’ve frustrated the visiting fans in attendance.

Sealing the deal

Raul wound up scoring his second goal in just six minutes, before West Ham even knew what hit them. They were beaten and battered in the second 45 minutes with some Wolves fans even calling it the worst display they’d seen from a visiting team at Molineux this season. In the end, though, it was another ruthless display from Nuno Espirito Santo’s team, who will now have the belief within the squad that they could make a push for a Europa League spot to go alongside their FA Cup run.

Wolves will turn their attention towards a visit to Goodison Park in order to face Everton this weekend, meanwhile, West Ham will host Liverpool on Monday night.

Match Report

Wolves: Patricio (7), Saiss (8.5), Coady (6.5), Bennett (6.5), Jonny (7.5), Moutinho (9), Neves (8), Dendoncker (7.5), Doherty (8), Jimenez (9.5), Jota (8.5), Gibbs-White (6), Cavaleiro (6), Vinagre (6)

Arum says he killed Pacquiao vs. Terence Crawford fight

Online Betting

Promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank says he intentionally chose not to make the fight between Manny Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs) and Terence Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs) in the past, because he felt that the Filipino star wound end up losing that fight.

Arum believes that there would be only winner and that would be Crawford. It’s a fight that Crawford wanted and needed to take his career to the next level, but Arum decided not to make it.

Pacquiao left Top Rank after losing a controversial 12 round unanimous decision to Jeff Horn in July 2017.

It’s unknown if Arum truly believes that Crawford would have beaten Pacquiao, because he’s still never matched the Nebraska native against anyone good during his time with Top Rank. Crawford’s biggest victories have come against smaller, flawed fighters for the most part like Yuriorkis Gamboa, Felix Diaz, Ricky Burns, John Molina Jr., Henry Lundy and Dierry Jean.

When Crawford has fought bigger guys, they were limited fighters that lacked talent. Crawford’s wins over bigger guys have been against these fighters: Viktor Postol, Jose Benavidez, Julius Indongo and Jeff Horn. Arum hasn’t put Crawford against the following talents: Ivan Baranchyk, Josh Taylor, Regis Prograis, Errol Spence Jr., Jose Ramirez, Danny Garcia, Shawn Porter, Kell Brook, Keith Thurman, Kiryl Relikh, Manny Pacquiao and Maurice Hooker.

“Well, I killed the fight,” Arum said to Fighthub about his decision not to make the fight between Pacquiao and Crawford. “Yeah, because I know how it would end,” Arum said in giving his reason why he didn’t want to make that fight involving Pacquiao. “Not that I knew that it would end in serious disability for Manny; that I wouldn’t know, but as a fight it would only end one way.”

Now that Pacquiao is with Premier Boxing Champions, it’s not even open to debate whether he’ll ever fight Crawford. even if Arum now wanted the Pacquiao-Crawford fight, it probably will never happen. Pacquiao has enough fighters in Al Haymon’s PBC stable to keep him busy for a long time to come.

Some boxing fans think Arum didn’t do Pacquiao any favors in having him fight Jeff Horn his hometown in Brisbane, Australia. That move was perceived badly by a lot of boxing fans, because Pacquiao was the star and he matched up against a non-star in his home country of Australia. That was a bad move. What was interesting is that when it came time for Crawford to fight Horn, he didn’t have to fight him in Australia. The Crawford-Horn fight took place in the United States in Las Vegas, Nevada last summer. Crawford didn’t have to go all the way to Australia to fight Horn like Pacquiao did. Crawford is nowhere near the PPV guy Pacquiao is. The only PPV fight Crawford has had was his match against Viktor Postol in 2016. That fight brought in a little over 50,000 buys. Those are horrible numbers, even for a fighter just starting out in the PPV business.

“Forget my emotions, I wouldn’t want to see him [Pacquiao] take that kind of damage because it might affect his future life — quality of his future life,” Arum said.

Crawford is 31 now, and still not a star. Although he has a lot of boxing fans in Nebraska, he still isn’t a star in the rest of the U.S. Arum was able to get Amir Khan to agree to fight Crawford on ESPN PPV on April 20. The problem is, Khan has been over-the-hill since 2012, and there’s a lot of interest from boxing fans in paying to see Crawford-Khan on ESPN PPV. That’s not a PPV fight. Khan is shot to pieces. He almost lost his last fight against journeyman Samuel Vargas. Crawford needs a fighter like Pacquiao to agree to fight him, but right now that’s not happening.

Bob Arum: “I don’t think Keith Thurman can fight anymore”

Online Betting

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says he thinks Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman is past his prime, and can no longer fight anymore after seeing him labor to an unimpressive 12 round majority decision last Saturday night against Josesito ‘The Riverside Rocky’ Lopez (36-8, 19 KOs).

Arum says the 34-year-old Lopez isn’t an elite fighter, and he arguably could have knocked Thurman out in the 7th round after he had him badly hurt. The referee Steve Willis let Thurman, 30, stay in there without stopping the fight, but he took some major shots. Many boxing fans wondered why the fight wasn’t stopped in the seventh, because Thurman was clearly defenseless and taking massive punishment. After the fight, Thurman looked like he’d a beating. Both eyes were blackened, and his face reddened and lumped up. You have to believe that most of the damage to Thurman’s face and eyes took place in the 7th round after he was hurt.

Two years out of the ring seems to have eroded Thurman’s physical boxing skills to the point where he’s no longer the same fighter he once was, and he’s not likely going to ever get back to that level.

“Well I don’t think Keith Thurman can fight anymore. I thought he was awful with Lopez,” Thurman said to Fighthub. “I mean let’s be honest about it: Lopez is not an elite fighter, never was an elite fighter, and he had Thurman out of there in the 7th round. And you know Lopez is not known for knocking anybody out, and the referee could’ve very well stopped the fight in that round.”

Lopez isn’t considered a big puncher, and he’s viewed as being in the same talent class as the likes of Errol Spence Jr., Terence Crawford, Shawn Porter and Danny Garcia. The way that Lopez was able to get to Thurman repeatedly throughout the fight doesn’t instill confidence in him when it comes to picturing how he would do in a fight against Manny Pacquiao, Crawford, Spence, Porter or Garcia. We saw Thurman beat Porter and Garcia in the past, but that was when he was still an active fighter. Being out of the ring for 2 years is a long time.

In any sport, if you stay of competition for two years, you’re not going to be able to come back and be the same guy you were. You lose something from your game. The thing is, Thurman was barely beating the likes of Porter and Garcia when he was at his best. He clearly isn’t that fighter anymore from what we saw last Saturday. The only thing that hasn’t changed is Thurman’s power, and his running ability. He can still run like before, but that’t not going to help him beat Spence and Crawford. The judges aren’t going to give Thurman rounds with him back-peddling for 12 rounds to avoid Spence and Crawford’s steady pressure.

Thurman beat Lopez by the 117-109, 115-111 and 113-113. Forget about the embarrassingly bad 117-109 score turned in by Tom Schreck; Thurman appeared to lose at least four rounds, possibly five. Although Thurman didn’t go down in the seventh, the judges still scored it as a 10-8 round, due to him being badly hurt and out on his feet. Earlier in the fight, Thurman got a flash knockdown of Lopez

Arum thinks Pacquiao can beat Thurman possibly after seen how badly ‘One Time’ looked against Lopez.

“Yeah, I think that’s a winnable fight. Yeah I do,” Arum said about him believing that Pacquiao can beat Thurman. “Yeah, I think Freddie’s sees the same thing I did.”

Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach also believes that Manny will beat Thurman.

Thurman looked so bad against Lopez that it might not be worth it for Pacquiao to fight him, because he looks like a shot fighter at this stage in his career. Pacquiao won’t get any credit if he beats Thurman, given that the boxing public will likely say, ‘So what, Lopez almost beat Thurman before you beat him.’ Pacquiao would have to chase Thurman for 12 rounds, just as Lopez was chasing him, and it would be an ugly to watch fight. Pacquiao would have more interest from boxing fans if he fought Danny Garcia, Spence, Mikey Garcia, Crawford or Shawn Porter.

The Saints really didn’t need Sen. Bill Cassidy to argue on their behalf in Congress

Online Betting

It was a Friday in Congress with no significant votes on the docket, just a discussion about sending money and weapons to the Middle East. The U.S. Government was in the midst of a shutdown — the announcement of our government’s temporary re-opening had yet to come.

That made it the perfect possible time for one senator to … pander to the home crowd with a little discussion about football.

Yup. The growing wave of complaints of Saints fans cheated out of a Super Bowl 53 appearance crested to a logical escalation Friday. In the span of five days, New Orleans has leveled up from punched televisions to billboards to change.org petitions to class action lawsuits, and now, a debate on the floor of the United States Senate.

 

Was it weird that Senator Bill Cassidy called the fans watching the NFC title game a bunch of drunks? Sure! Was it reminiscent of Jonah Ryan rallying against school lunches in Season 6 of Veep? Kinda! Will Congress actually do anything to affect the outcome of a game played five days ago? Nope!

Cassidy’s speech came hours before President Trump announced he’d end the longest shutdown in American history for three weeks time. On this same day, a major airport in one of the largest cities in the world briefly grounded its departing flights due to a shortage of federally paid air traffic controllers.

Needless to say, there’s a lot going on right now … and we’re talking about football! Not even in the cutesy “I’d like to make a resolution honoring the Clemson Tigers for winning a national championship” way, either.

"Cassidy scored the cheapest of political points Friday, which is both brilliant and stupid."

Cassidy starts his argument with some lip service to the shutdown, but this presentation is all about one thing — football. He cites Hulk Hogan, yet cannot name any of the players involved in the controversial play aside from Drew Brees. This is doubly impressive because he has a giant, blown-up picture of the play in which Tommylee Lewis’ “LEWIS” nameplate is clearly visible.

He brings up “the integrity of the game,” which, somewhere in New York City, silently made Roger Goodell perk up and nod silently to himself. He suggests the referee who missed the call may have been biased because he lives in California, a state that wasn’t home to the Rams between the years of 1995 and 2015. He admits he doesn’t actually know how officiating crews are assigned to playoff games — a Google search that takes literally eight seconds to complete.

This is a man who does. not. give. a. shit. about. football, yet here he is campaigning to an empty Senate to score the cheapest of cheap political points at a time where there were simultaneously bigger fish to fry and nothing, really, to do. He knows there’s nothing meaningful the U.S. Government is going to do to reverse one blown call in an NFL playoff game, but he’s still going to be able to tell voters “hell, I tried” when he’s rubbing elbows with voters in Metairie.


It’s dumb and brilliant at the same time, a speech Cassidy can pull out at LSU tailgates and stick in the face of every opponent he’d like to hear say “well, he’s not all bad.” With the news of Trump’s decision to temporarily halt the shutdown, it’ll be lost to the ever-churning news cycle but remain in Cassidy’s archives, waiting for the right time to resurface. Just don’t confuse his argument for actual caring. And don’t think this will lead anywhere but to campaign ads in the New Orleans television market come October 2020.

“Bill Cassidy: standing up for Louisianans. Especially Drew Brees and that other guy. You know, the one who got hit. I want to say Tommy Lee Jones?”

Atletico confirm Morata

Online Betting

Atletico Madrid have confirmed the signing of Alvaro Morata from Chelsea.

The striker Morata, who fell completely out of favor with Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, will move to Wanda Metropolitano on an 18-month loan, as the two clubs agreed.

Morata spent four seasons at Atletico’s academy under the name “Alevin”, and during that time he played alongside Koke, and the La Liga side happily point out that the pair of them will now be reunited in the first team.

The Spanish international, however, made his name across town playing for Real Madrid for which he signed his first professional contract, before moving to Juventus in 2014. Real exercised their buy-back option two years later and sold them to Chelsea after a season of having him back. It’s fair to say he didn’t impress for the Londoners, and Sarri has recently preferred using Eden Hazard in a “false nine” role than giving Morata a chance to redeem himself.

A move away seems like a logical solution, one that should fit all parties’ interests, and Atletico are obviously happy to have him aboard.

Roach says Thurman is his #2 choice for Pacquiao if no Mayweather

Online Betting

Trainer Freddie Roach says Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman is his #2 choice for Manny Pacquiao’s next fight if they can’t get a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr., which appears to be the case. Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs) has heard no word from Mayweather about him wanting to come out of his two-year retirement to fight him in a rematch.

Getting WBA Super World welterweight champion Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) to agree to a fight against Pacquiao will be as easy as pie. Thurman, 30, wants the fight against Pacquiao in the worst way, and made that clear before and especially after his warm-up level fight last Saturday night against fringe contender Josesito Lopez (36-8, 19 KOs) on Premier Boxing Champions on FOX and FS1 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Thurman told the fans after the fight that it would be an honor for him to share the ring with the 40-year-old Pacquiao. Since both of them are with PBC, it’ll be a snap to put the fight together. Pacquiao prefers to fight Mayweather, cause that’s the bigger money match-up for him. Pacquiao also would like to face the winner of the Errol Spence Jr. vs. Mikey Garcia. Thurman might be a bigger fight for Pacquiao, however, being that he’s a little more verbal and outgoing than Spence Jr. and Mikey. Thurman makes a lot more noise in the media when it comes to promoting his fights. Thurman has a gift for gab, and he’ll work hard to sell a fight between him and Pacquiao, knowing that it’ll help his career, as well as bring in more pay-per-view buys on FOX or SHOWTIME.

It’s entirely possible that the 41-year-old Mayweather is playing coy with Pacquiao to feign indifference before pulling the trigger on the fight, but it could be that he really doesn’t want the fight and doesn’t care that he’s walking away from $100 million payday. Mayweather seemingly doesn’t care that he’ll miss that money, and possibly regret it one day. Right now, Mayweather is doing his own thing.

“I [want Pacquiao] to fight him. The thing is, if we don’t get Mayweather, Thurman’s my second choice,” Roach said to Fighthub in saying that Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman is his second choice for Pacquiao to fight next. “I love him for Pacquiao’s style. I think he’s good for us. Not easy, though.”

Pacquiao will have to follow Thurman around the ring if he takes the fight with him. Thurman moves around a lot, and he’s not going to stand and make it a fight. Against Lopez last Saturday, it was boring to watch much of the time due to Thurman trying to get away from his pressure in the second half of the fight. Thurman can make it boring when he gets tired or when he’s hurt, like he was last Saturday. Thurman fought the same way against Danny Garcia when he got tired in the last six rounds in their fight in March 2017.

The way that Thurman looked last Saturday against Josesito Lopez may have cemented him in as Pacquiao’s next opponent. Thurman looked vulnerable throughout that fight, and was almost knocked out in the seventh round by Lopez. Thurman eventually prevailed in winning a 12 round majority decision by the scores 113-113, 117-109 and 115-111. Thurman didn’t look nearly as impressive in beating Lopez as guys like Marcos Maidana, Saul Canelo Alvarez and Andre Berto did in knocking him out.

If Thurman had looked sensational last Saturday night against the 34-year-old Lopez, would Roach still want him as Pacquiao’s Plan-B opponent if Mayweather doesn’t fight him again? Probably not. Roach wants Pacquiao to fight guys that he can beat, and Thurman looks beatable right now after his off performance against Lopez. Thurman didn’t look much better in his fights against Danny Garcia and Luis Collazo. Thurman was hurt by Collazo, and almost dropped. Thurman was also hurt by Diego Chaves and Jesus Soto Karass. Thurman’s punch resistance has never been good, but he was able to cover up for that vulnerability with his speed and footwork. Now that Thurman has slowed down a notch due to age and inactivity, he’s now showing how vulnerable he is. Lopez is a fighter that would have likely been destroyed by the likes of Errol Spence Jr., Shawn Porter, Terence Crawford and Danny Garcia last Saturday night.

“Well he [Pacquiao] told me we’ll take anyone out there,” Roach said of Pacquiao. “The thing is there’s one guy he really wants, and that’s Mayweather, and he had all intentions of Mayweather maybe taking the fight right away.”

Mayweather sounds like he’s going to stay retired, and walk away from the money that he would get from a second fight. It doesn’t make sense for a person to walk away from that kind of money, but that’s Mayweather. Pacquiao will need to make the decision to fight Thurman or the Spence-Garcia winner next. Thurman looked like he’d aged badly in his last fight. The two years that Thurman has been out of the ring haven’t done his boxing skills and chin any favors. Perhaps it’s just rust that was cause of Thurman looking like that. It’s more likely that Thurman has aged, and he’s not going to get back to the level he was at before. Thurman’s game is based on speed and movement, and those type of fighters don’t do well when they hit their 30s, and start to lose speed and mobility.

“No, we haven’t heard nothing yet. But, you know, we have to let them say it — just like last time. You know the drill. But, you know, he is the star though,” Roach said about Mayweather not having said anything about wanting to come out of his two-year retirement to fight Pacquiao.

Mayweather probably won’t come out of retirement unfortunately, and Pacquiao cannot wait for the next four months, hoping that he’ll take the fight with him. Pacquiao’s management will need to setup his next fight in a month or so in order to start getting the boxing public excited about it, be it Thurman or the Spence-Garcia winner. Mayweather will probably resurface in a year or two, fighting another MMA with no boxing background in order to try and sell another mismatch to the fans. Mayweather will soon find out that he’s getting diminishing returns for his fights against MMA guys, and he’ll need to make a decision whether to start fighting boxers again or stay retired. It would be in Mayweather’s best interest to make that decision now rather than waiting to get older. The longer Mayweather waits, the less popular he’ll become. The fans aren’t going to want to pay to see an old guy in his mid-40s, who they barely remember, fighting Pacquiao 2 to 3 years from now.
