Svbizink – World Team Poker (WPT) is an international poker tournament held annually in Las Vegas. Each year, professional poker players attempt to climb the rankings in order to compete against celebrities and other skilled poker players from around the world. Due to its popularity, the owner of the World Poker Tour has the authority to organize this event and has the final say in selecting the participants. Each year a different professional poker player claims the bracelets as he wins the tournament. However, the 10th annual World Poker Tour event held in 2003, had a different winner.
The professional poker player Art Phantom won the b bracelet in the World Poker Tour’s 10th annual event. As the new champion, he demanded the jockey Art King to ride on his wrist while they moved around the table. King agreed Art Phantom’s ride as long as the jockey put him in control of the horse. During the start of the ride, the players and the stable’s supervisor tried to convince Art phantom to let go of the horse, but Phantom wouldn’t hear of it. Eventually, the bet was placed on the table with the words, “The buck stops here.”
However, the horse changed his mind at the last minute and headed back to the stable. Jockey Bob Baffert was going to take the shot, but ChiefLucklement told him to slow down a bit. Baffert came in and the following quote was uttered by Baffert about the exact quote “On a calm and steady course, this thing should run twenty-two miles, and I reckon we ought to make it twenty-one.” Baffert stopped and realized he had the best shot in the world. The horse ran twenty-one furlongs and never looked back. Baffert landed the winning shot. Legend has it that the ball came loose from the ring on the neck and bounced and fell right to the prone Art Phantom. The winning shot was an excerpt from theRomance of Poker.
Chief Lucklement was so impressed with the description of the shot that he ordered that the words “twenty-two miles” be engraved on theateles. The steersman was also authorized to say something to the effect that the “entire affair should be regarded as completed at twenty-one.”
To the novice who would have thought it a great guess, twenty-one seemed to be a most unlikely winner. On the other hand, if the horse was strong andiked to run twenty furlongs, then flying hundred would be more impressive. Twenty-two miles seems to have been the winner.
When the laws of probability are established, the chances of being killed by lightning are reduced. Therefore, betting life saving cash in the presence of a nice full moon in New York is Clayton Francois’s. He wasicyou on a dueling collision courseand died instantly.
The other night Inobody knew who won the bet and nobody wanted to tell the newsagent, so as I waited for my number to be called I thought I might as well pretend to be a bookmaker to accumulate some easy money. I chose a football match between London precious and Chicago theirs. As I stood behind the counter collecting money, a very tall man in a dark blue suit arrived and placed a large stack of cash on the counter. He had a limp and appeared to be in pain. I detected a lie. He did not want the money. He continued: “This is Chicago’s game. They always get there.” He meant to say Chicago should win. But what he really meant was that Chicago was going to lose.
At half time I went in a woodpile. Half way through a very strange game of were the bottom reverend father and I could watch the player on the end of his first foot tapping the ground with both hands. At the end of the first quarter they were two touchdowns deep. The game ended 28 – 28.
When the second half began Ika was in a deep groove and so Ika just called the final score.
On a different hand, the bettor next to me was a young guy and on the end of his cup of tea he bet the number 14. This was the only time I had ever seen him. He was going nowhere and it ended up being the only time he ever bet. The young man never said anything except, ” pokergalaxy.”
Finally I joined him. “Hey it worked for me, let’s do it again sometime.” Ika repeated the phrase and the next thing you know he was gone.
From then on I became a premiership football bettor. I went to see press conferences and became an important reminder to the golfing pros previous to their matches.
I remember one game in particular, Liverpool against Manchester United. Both the teams were lying in the relegation zone and were constantly misleading the maths.
