2014-02-26

The Senegal National Lottery (LONASE), online gambling software developer Senejeux and the French gambling group PMU's Senegal retail betting operation have collaborated to povide punters in the former French colony with virtual horse racing services.

The system includes 43-inch plasma television screens, along with touch-screen electronic point-of-sale terminals equipped with printers and bar code scanners.
Punter reaction and take-up on the new product is said to be positive and encouraging.
Senejeux operational director Balla Gadiaga says: We feel that virtual horseracing is the perfect complimentary game to go along with the existing live horse PMU activities, and now that we are live it is evident that additional revenues are being achieved, especially during those hours when live horse racing from France is not available.

FIVE-WAY CHOP AND BIG BLINDS BRINGS AUSSIE MILLIONS CHALLENGE TO A SPEEDY END
2014-02-04

The $25,000 buy-in Aussie Millions Challenge event Downunder came to a fast if unspectacular end Monday as the five remaining professional players made a deal and then boosted the blinds to end the match quickly.
Max Altergott was the titular winner, having started the final table low on the chip stacks...and the five-way chop meant that he was actually the lowest paid of the last five players standing at $241,785.
The final table started out as Altergott, Dan Smith, Jason Mercier, Martin Jacobson, Scott Seiver, Dan Shak, Marvin Rettenmaier and Tobias Renkemeier - all respected names illustrating the quality of the opposition.
By the time the action had reached five-handed stage, Altergott, Dan Smith, Jason Mercier, Martin Jacobson and Scott Seiver decided to agree a five-way chop that left nothing on the table, but gave each around $240,000.
With no incentive for the ultimate winner, that left only the problem of finishing as fast as possible, a task accomplished by increasing the blinds every orbit up to an eventual 100,000/200,000/40,000, ending the game in just over 10 minutes.
Payments to the last five were:
Martin Jacobson $285,921
Dan Smith $278,414
Scott Seiver $265,538
Jason Mercier $263,342
Max Altergott $241,785
Other final tablers took home the following:
6th: Dan Shak - $100,000
7th: Marvin Rettenmaier - $70,000
8th: Tobias Renkemeier - $55,000
