Richard Glynn Leaving Ladbrokes

Richard Glynn is stepping down from his post as CEO of Ladbrokes soon after a few years of leading the company. The decision was announced in December last year and will soon come to effect.

Richard Glynn of Ladbrokes

 Reasons for resignation

It is widely believed that Glynn was asked by the board of directors at Ladbrokes to step down from his position. It was done as he failed to expand the business, and this was why he was hired in the first place. However, his performance at the company was less than satisfactory and the board felt it was time to change leadership and change the fortunes of the company.

Another reason touted as the reason for the ouster is that Glynn was unable to match up to the success of William Hill, which has been a rival of Ladbrokes for a long time now. When William Hill had partnered with Playtech, it achieved a lot of success. However, the partnership between Ladbrokes and Playtech didn’t see the same level of success even though the two companies launched a few products together.

Other factors related to resignation

It wouldn’t be wrong to assume that maybe Glynn was trying to do too much at the same time and ended up succeeding at nothing. He had planned many strategic moves such as wanting to buy companies like Playtech and 888 Holdings but not going forward with these plans. Then he partnered with Playtech instead. He had also planned a business strategy to expand the company’s digital business.

However, once again he didn’t go forward with it. All this poor planning meant a very low operating profit for Ladbrokes in 2013. It is what must have prompted the directors to take some concrete measures to save the company from being takeover by more profitable companies.

Will Online Poker Be Legalized In California

Online pokerCalifornia is a poker hub for many gamblers worldwide, and the game is popular among people of all ages in the state too. Despite several state bans on the game, the number of regular poker players in California is even higher than that in Nevada. It is well known that Californians play poker for money and take the game very seriously. In fact, according to a recent estimate, it was found that the residents of California spend an average of $300 million a year on online poker websites based outside the US.

It is also estimated that if poker is legalized in California, the state’s revenues will sky-rocket, rising to almost $600 million in four years. You might be thinking what is the problem in legalizing it? Deciding on it is not easy because poker is a form of gambling, and it could become addictive in time. There are several issues that a state has to consider before legalizing a game that can have many after-effects.

Issues in legalizing online poker in California

Some of the factors that have to be considered before making the decision to legalize online poker in California are:

  • Legalization of online poker would motivate people other than the regular gamblers to take part in the game. This may cause the new players to lose their money, and it also has the possibility of making them go bankrupt.
  • Legalizing poker would change the attitude towards online gambling in the other states as well.
  • If the game is legalized, all online poker operators would have to obtain a license to operate in the state. If not, playing with unlicensed dealers would still be illegal.
  • The game must take place in a controlled as well as monitored environment, and the security of the game participants must be ensured.

The verdict

California may soon legalize poker; the real question is when will the new law come to pass? Legalizing online poker has its pros and cons. The state officials have to keep in mind the raging popularity of the game in the state, as well as the repercussions of making it legally available, before coming to a decision.

Increase Your Poker Winrate off the Table

While there are no shortage of strategy videos and online poker training sites to teach players how to make better decisions on the digital felt, few players are aware of the steps they can take to make more money online before they even site down to play. By taking advantage of these basic tips, you can greatly increase your chances of success.

Poker Training1. What is a Winrate?

If you’ve spent any time playing poker online, you know that your winrate is an expression of how much money you are making overall. Your winrate is usually expressed as big blinds/100 hands (or BB/100).

For example, a player who plays 200nl and has a winrate of 2bb/100 is making $4 every 100 hands they play. This is because $2 is the Big Blind at 200nl. While this isn’t much, you can see how improving your winrate just a little will lead to more money won over time, making it all the more important to maximize it where possible.

2. Stop Evaluating Based on Results

One of the most common mistakes made by beginning players is the use of results-based thinking. This occurs when someone assumes they made the right play or made what they feel is a lot of money in a hand. Instead, focus on making the right decisions and letting the chips fall where they may. Over the long run, solid decision making trumps luck.

3. Study Away From the Table

One of the most important things you can do is objectively analyze your hands played after each session when possible. This allows you to take another look at your hands and the decisions you made. You should take notes on what you did vs what you should have done. Try to identify spots where you could have made more money in a hand and what the optimum decisions were in key spots of your session. If needed, have a friend help you, as a second pair of eyes also helps.

4. Eat Right

It might sound silly, but the reality is that what you eat has a dramatic effect on your mental focus and performance when playing live or online. If you’re planning on playing for several hours, you’ll want to consume healthy, vitamin-rich snacks that provide lasting energy as opposed to fatty foods and sugar-filled beverages.

When combined with practice and experience, these tips are a great way to help you maintain focus and start making more money at the tables.

PokerStars Sunday Briefing

It is a testament to online poker that so many great players from around the world logged into the PokerStars tournament on Sunday. This tournament is known as the Championship of Online Poker, and was played by around 2,133 players on Sunday evening. There was a $5,200 buy in, which results in a prize pot of up to $10,655,000. Those are huge numbers for online poker, and it shows just how great this tournament is. After Sunday’s events ended, there were 296 players left in the game. These players will be trimmed down until a champion is found at the end of Monday’s games.

Poker Stars - The Dark Knight

There are plenty of great players who are leading the table at the end of the first day. Dan Smith, better known as Danny98765, is third in the table with 536,211. The only men who have more chips than him (719,357 and 551,511) are HeroCallFold and Pkr_b77 respectively. There are other players who are also in line for the ultimate prize. While they may not be in the top three or four, these players have enough chips to be able to have a say in the final outcome. These players include Jake Cody, Liv Boeree, Jason Mercier, Shaun Deeb, Humberto Brenes, Mike McDonald, Andrew Lichtenberger, Steven Silverman, Vicky Coren, and Shane Schleger.

There are other events taking place at PokerStars, besides the main prize pot. There was the $10,300 high roller game, and it featured many of the game’s most talented online poker players. The likes of Daniel Negreanu, Dan Kelly, Bertrand Grospellier, and Phil Galfond took part. However, a certain Frenchman Alex Luneau came up with the goods when it mattered, and walked away with $234,350.

Another small money tournament that took place was the $2,100 WCOOP HORSE match up. This game was won by vachette17 from Hungary, although he was run close by Viktor Blom and Eugene Katchalov. This was the first time that Katchalov has one a major tournament, and he took home the major prize of that draw.

PokerStars always brings out the best players, which is why these fields are so competitive and tightly contested. It is likely to go down to the wire on Monday, with a lot of money up for grabs. The smart money would be on one of Sunday’s top three to come out on top, but online poker often has a way of surprising us with the results.

Caesars Takes to Online Poker

Somewhere in Nevada at 9:19 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time, either a resident or a visitor of the state logged on to a tablet or a computer to play the World Series of Poker on the Internet for real money for the first time ever. For the operator of the brand, Caesars, the real money to be made for the World Series of Poker is online where it can more easily be accessed by international professionals.

The symbolism of this moment is just as relevant in this story; Caesars has now become the first major casino operator of Las Vegas to get money from online gambling.Casino

Though it was outlawed seven years ago by Congress, online gambling now has gained a legal foothold within the country, though it is limited. Each state has different regulations for online poker and casinos, though international countries like the UK and Australia are still easy candidates to get in on the online version of the World Series of Poker.

Nevada paved the way for this possibility, followed by Delaware. However, both have relatively small populations that make it difficult to make money by local residents alone. Though regulation is expected to occur in New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Pennsylvania and California, the real market is international — outside of the United States.

The politicians are not the only ones who are slow to accept the presence of international online gambling, and they have only actually accepted it due to the benefits of tax revenue. Some major casino moguls have reacted ambivalently and some hostilely, considering online gambling to be the unworthy offspring that will damage their palaces.

According to Sheldon Adelson, online gambling is merely a threat to society, calling the industry a toxin that needs to be resisted. Steve Wynn, a man who has been making great strides to further expand his Wynn Resorts empire throughout Macau and North America, expresses an attitude that can be best described as ambivalent.

Garber, the former chief executive of PartyGaming, recalls back when his company was popular among Americans and international residents alike. He states that everybody wants to learn how to play poker online before taking it to the casinos, which creates an industry that will help achieve this goal. He hopes that casino operators will stop viewing online poker as a threat and instead as a proper supplement to the numerous casinos throughout the world that will benefit from the industry’s presence.
