1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Chess Gambling on: February 07, 2024, 10:37:11 AM
I have been here in this forum for a long time and I have an on and off relationship with gambling and I don't know if it's because I don't search so much or there's really no one that's doing this but is there any website that offers chess matches where the winner will win the pot money that was pooled together by the two players fighting? I assume there's none of that yet but imagine the stuff that could happen when this is real, Carlsen playing for a 2 million dollars pot money against Nakamura, FIDE and WCF would definitely be mad about this if this is real.

I'd delete this thread in the case there's an existing discussion about this.

Sana masarap ulam niyo at pagpalain din kayo sa susunod na taon. Patuloy lang sa pag-HODL at pagbili ng bitcoin habang wala pa ang all-time high.

3  Economy / Exchanges / Binance alternatives on: December 12, 2023, 05:17:43 PM
If you're not yet familiar with the situation, Binance only have 90 days to operate in my country (the Philippines) and given that I've stored my hoard of bitcoin there for a long time already, I'm a bit panicky as to where I should store it (ironic that I'm like that when I'm a staunch believer that I don't care if I lose my bitcoins) so my question is, what alternative wallet or exchanges I can store my bitcoins, wallets would be appreciated and some of my irl crypto friends already recommended me two wallets and an exchange and hopefully they're going to be the same as your recommendations so I can finalize my decision.
4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Do think that POGO should be declared as legal or Illegal ? on: November 02, 2022, 04:12:21 PM
A gambling platform headquartered in the Philippines called Philippines Offshore Gaming Operations (POGO) provides gambling, betting, and E-casinos outside of the nation. Many POGO companies operate legally in the Philippines by submitting license applications to PAGCOR, but some people run POGO illegally, which is why many legal offshore gaming operations are branded as illegal. If the government shuts down this operation, many Filipinos will lose their jobs and the Philippine economy will suffer a loss of several billion pesos.

In my opinion, the POGO sector helps many Filipinos meet their basic needs and stimulates the economy, but having so many unlicensed offshore gambling establishments will harm the Philippines government's reputation.

6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Potential Valorant Esports betting sites on: June 28, 2020, 02:01:33 PM
Valorant esports is starting to have a rumor about making it into a betting sites. It is a new game where you can feel like playing a CS:Go with some new strategies and gameplay. Just like the other games, we all know that when a team compete with other teams, tournament can become a number 1 priority.

Just like some other Esports, Valorant is a new game that is popping and it is trending right now in a gaming industry. It is not yet known just like League of Legends, Dota 2, CS:Go and other games that can be used in a betting sites.

But I believe that this game has a potential to become included in those gambling esports betting sites, i'm not that sure.

I know that soon, this game will be classified as one of the best fps Esports game that has a betting options just like CS:GO.

I'm hoping that once there is a gambling esports betting site that includes Valorant in their platform, it is safe and fair just like other Esports games.  Grin What are your thoughts?
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / "Poker Tournaments" are reopening little by little. on: June 21, 2020, 06:37:07 PM
On March 2020, there are a lot of poker tournaments which are postponed due to this Covid-19 pandemic. I know all of us wants to watch those live tournaments because of getting bored as we don't have an access to play poker physically in some casinos. Some gamblers are only relying on playing poker through offline and online gambling platform.

There are some casinos that are reopened in May to continue operating and it includes "The Seminole Hard Rock Tampa", "the King’s Casino Rozvadov", "Derby Lane", and "Bestbet Jacksonville and Bestbet Orange Park. This is a good news for those gamblers who are homesick in watching or playing poker in the internet.

“We are going to start offering tournaments again in July,” bestbet Director of Poker Jesse Hollander told Card Player. “We will likely have three tournaments a week in Jacksonville and two a week at Orange Park, no-limit hold’em tournaments with buy-ins of $60 and $150. We will offer those in July, and hopefully will offer more starting in August.”

This Multi-Table Tournaments are located in different countries and i'm pretty sure that it can bring a lot of influence to the slowly improvement of gambling industry amidst this pandemic. This is complete possible to happen because probably there are a new set of rules and regulation that are implemented inside a poker casino. There are more casinos that will soon to reopen in the month of July and August.

“The top priorities for us are to make sure that the players are safe and make sure our staff are safe,” said Savage.
Although, it is not that safe to play and go to a physical casinos, it is good that staffs are still prioritizing safety for all.


Do you think this will bring a huge development or improvement in a Gambling Industry? Will poker be the only safest option to play gambling right now?

8  Economy / Gambling discussion / NBA 2019-2020 Playoffs prediction on: April 05, 2020, 01:00:09 PM
In this 2020 season, this is the year where Los Angeles Lakers has an opportunity to enter in the Playoffs but this Covid-19 suddenly occurs. It's been a long time where Los Angeles Lakers entered the NBA playoffs since 2014-2019, they don't have any appearance on these years. This 2020 season is their chance but the season got cancelled.

Here is the link per season where Los Angeles Lakers didn't appear in a Playoffs:
2014 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_NBA_playoffs
2015 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_NBA_playoffs
2016 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_NBA_playoffs
2017 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_NBA_playoffs
2018 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_NBA_playoffs
2019 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_NBA_playoffs

They have strong roster as their big man like Javale Mcgee, Dwight Howard, and Anthony Davis are dominating inside the paint. The bench line up is also good, Alex Caruso is somehow being notice because of his athleticism that made him confident this season. Lebron James really want that Championship ring together with the Lakers team as he want Kobe Bryant to be proud of.

He really respect Kobe Bryant and I think that this season is dedicated for him as the accident made all of us mourn of his loss. Hoping that Kobe Bryant still see the hard-work that the Los Angeles Lakers is doing together with Lebron just to become the Champion this season

But not only the Western Conference teams are their opponent but also the Eastern Conference team. The Milwaukee bucks got the no.1 spot and I think that this will become the new rivalry in this season.

Do you think that if the NBA season got resumed, can Los Angeles Lakers still be no.1 at the Western Conference? and can they defeat the Milwaukee Bucks if they both got clinched the Finals spot and get the ring?
