Pool vs. Poker

English: Quads Aces, to represent poker games.

It has been a while, so ride with me here. I've been commenting on a few poker professionals’ blogs, so hopefully this may help them in clicking my blog as a favorite. I've recently become so immersed in trying to become a solid poker player that I have almost quit pool. That is also a subject which will be covered in this (probably) largish posting.

Firstly, Pool has been doing my tree in recently. I've done nothing but play pool with car sales for months and its starting to wear thin. I've found that I'm looking into the future now and realizing that I'm earning less than what I want to and the job I'm in, whilst fine for now, is simply not enough. Even if I was full-time in it, which I was promised it would still be a bit on the thin side. So basically I've been re-assessing what's going on.

But going back to pool for a second, I play for a team on a Sunday night bi-weekly, and the county once a month. Both are 1 frame matches against other good players. I massively prefer tournaments. Because 1 frame pool is a bit of a coin-flip, especially for an aggressive player like me, who plays knowing that 7 out of 10 clearances I try I will get (maybe 8/10 :D) but at county its 1 out of 1 and no room for error. I don't enjoy this conservative style.

The money side of my job has lead me to want to try poker as a way of making a small amount of money. Don't worry. I’m actually reasonably good and always follow the golden rules. I.e. NEVER gamble with more than I can afford to lose. Play within my comfort levels and limits etc. I've come to realize that to make a fortune in business I may have made some serious errors by continuing to not know what I want to do. I was under the impression that a grounding in lettings would lead to a management position at a big company. Not so. There is always the chance of NEL making it big, but for now I want to try poker out as an interim option.

Others make a nice bankroll and do alright, so why not me. Hopefully my purchase of Poker Academy will help me plug for gaps even quicker and become more solid. I'm also going to appear in the Newcastle Festival in the Grosvenor casino in July, so I'm looking forward to that. Hopefully I'll take home some winnings. Every little helps as Tesco says!

Don't think this is a mad way of losing money, even though it looks that way. I'll have a stab and if it does not work I will walk away from it. It is a combination of me looking into a new social circle when going to the event, and I fully intend to chat up some mink when I pass by the tournaments. iPod and green shades in tow (look out for pictures) I’m going to study and do it right. And hopefully win too. Considering I worked out that I'm currently spending about $150 per month in the Pool Hall shifting that into something that might show a return seems like a good move for me. The career arguments within will roll on until I decide what is to be done. Most likely a motivating chat with boss to see if we can try something new that might be potentially profitable or a major shift (after we have recovered financially from the last 'investment in growth' that went tits up) just might work. Off to Spar now to pick up some snack able provisions and then its DVD until bed. Not decided which one, possibly The Terminal with Mr. Hanks.

Sports Gambling

English: National Collegiate Athletic Associat...

Gambling junkies like me look at any sporting events as an opportunity to place a bet, even if you don’t know much about the sport or team you’re putting your money on. As a basketball fan, I would have to say the NCAA tournament is the best sporting event to gamble over, but it can also be very costly! Each year you hear about the Cinderella team who you now hate because they caused a huge upset that probably lost you a good chunk of money on. I wouldn't call No. 15 Norfolk State or No. 15 Lehigh Cinderella teams of the 2012 tournament, but very few people could say they predicted them to beat No. 2 Missouri and No. 2 Duke without lying. Upsets aren't uncommon in sports, but I personally think they are the hardest to anticipate in college basketball, especially during March Madness when the teams leave it all out on the court. 

On the other hand, you've got college football, where upsets are less common and easier to anticipate. Take Texas A&M’s victory over Alabama this season. It was very exciting moment for A&M, but I think it is safe to say it wasn't a big surprise to many. Since I find it easier to predict upsets in college football, I want to share a couple of the games I’m putting money on this bowl season.

Poinsettia Bowl – Brigham Young (7-5) vs. San Diego State (9-3) 
     Prediction: BYU
Holiday Bowl – Baylor (7-5) vs. UCLA (9-4) 
     Prediction: Baylor
Russell Athletic Bowl – Rutgers (9-3) vs. Virginia Tech (6-6) 
     Prediction: Virginia Tech
Valero Alamo Bowl – Texas (8-4) vs. Oregon State (9-3) 
     Prediction: Texas
Chick-fil-A BowlLSU (10-2) vs. Clemson (10-2) 
     Prediction: LSU
Outback Bowl – South Carolina (10-2) vs. Michigan (8-4) 
     Prediction: South Carolina
Capital One BowlGeorgia (11-2) vs. Nebraska (10-3) 
     Prediction: Georgia
Rose Bowl – Wisconsin (8-5) vs. Stanford (11-2)

Data Recovery Shouldn't Be A Gamble

When working on a major project or assignment on your computer, the last thing you ever want to have happen is to lose everything at the very last minute. There are quite a few options available to computer owners when it comes to data recovery; you can back everything up on an external hard drive, you can use a cloud based service to back your data up automatically, or you can hire a data recovery service such as www.datarecoverygroup.com to do all of that for you. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of all of those options.

1. External Hardrive - They are great for people who want to have instant access to everything they own on a different computer, and for those who just prefer to have their data on something more tangible. The cons are they can break, they can become outdated, lost, stolen and damaged. I generally do not recommend any of these products.

2. Cloud based - These are great for the average user. All your data is automatically synced, and can generally be easily accessed via internet. You can easily get stuck with a bad service and have to pay them a chunk of money every month for their services. When the time runs out, you have to pay all over again. Generally I would say that small cost is worth it in the long run.

3. Data Recovery service - Great for small businesses to large corporations. When the data you need to back up or recover is far too much and too important for a small do it yourself internet backup. Problems include being expensive and a step away from your control. Generally these costs also outweigh the benefits and are a must have for most businesses.
