1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Premier League Prediction Thread 2023/2024 on: October 01, 2023, 08:17:01 PM
City finally lost in the league and showed that they are normal humans. Although it was a lucky win for Wolves, as they finished the game with only one shot on target and two goals. Sometimes we watch matches like that. One team shot more than 20 times and other defensive team get the win.
Experiencing one defeat in the EPL league is not a bad thing for a big club, after all, Manchester City has had enough consecutive wins from the several matches they faced at the start of this season. There are times when they lose or get a draw, no one will ever know about that, anyone who bets on Wolves with big betting odds will definitely win big.
We don't know the exact reason why Manchester City lost, but I'm sure that Guardiola has mobilized his team to continue winning, but they are also human, they must feel tired, so it's normal to experience defeat, however, with Manchester City's defeat, competition at the top of the standings is now getting tighter. this season. BTW, even though they lost, Manchester City is still at the top of the standings.
Indeed, something like this could happen to a big club, especially Manchester City, we know that any team will definitely have difficulty beating it. However, it must also be acknowledged that Wolves are the first team to beat Manchester City this season. Smiley
It is true that even though they lost, Manchester City are still at the top of the standings with 18 points, but this does not make them calm because the two teams from North London, namely Spurs and Arsenal, are now closer to Manchester City with only 1 point.


Anyway, talking about Manchester City, next week they will have a big match against their rival last season, namely Arsenal, and I know that so far Arsenal have never won against Manchester City. However, Manchester City's previous defeat will certainly be an opportunity for the Gunners to overthrow Manchester City at home and at the same time break Manchester City's unbeaten record when they meet Arsenal in that match. Roll Eyes
I fon't have much to say on this match because I know that both teams will be playing with the mindset to win the game but eventually it is only one team that can win the game which might be Manchester City dur to the dact that they lost against Wolves and the point gap is damn close.
Arsenal won Manchester City last in Community shield in the beginning of this season and I think that this match will be a revenge for that match from Manchester City. On the other hand, Arsenal would try to win this match so that they can top the league, but it wouldn't be an easy one for them. I wouldn't place ny bet on this game because it is unpredictable and anything can happen along the line because football is full of surprises.
The match is really going to be a tough one for Arsenal because they were recently hit with the news of Saka's injury in their last match and we know how phenomenal the player is.
For Manchester city, they would be coming with all they got because it is Arsenal, their close competitors for the title and neighbor and they have just lost their last match against Wolverhampton as highlighted already.
I wouldn't hold my breath on placing a bet. If there's one thing am confident on, it is that the goals will end in a side securing win of an above 2.5 goal margin. Worst is a draw, but I hardly doubt.

I would say this is the most important match in the Premier League right now. So far, it seems that Manchester City and Arsenal are the most worthy teams for this year's Premier League title. Tottenham are playing pretty well though. But this group has several weaknesses. It will be very difficult for Tottenham to perform consistently well until the end of the season. This is why City and Arsenal are the favorites for the Premier League title.

Manchester City lost their last match against Wolves. And so it is not impossible to defeat this team. Since Manchester City lost against Wolves, maybe Arsenal players will be more confident to win this match. Manchester City will be favorites in this match. But my guess is that the match will be a draw or Arsenal will win.

Australia vs Netherlands Warm up match

After the delaying due to rain now match lived Australia against Netherlands team. I suppose that pitch is not favor to Australia team in today. I am also very surprising to see the performance of Netherlands in bowling lineup very tremendous. At this time, Australia team players like Josh Inglis batsman out by Logan van Beek in 0 runs, Alex Carey out by Roelof van der Merwe after scoring 28 runs and Glenn Maxwell out by Shariz Ahmed only scoring 5 runs.
5th warm-up Match between Australia and the Netherlands. Australia won the toss and decided to bat first in the warm-up match against the Netherlands. Australia posted 166 in a loss of 7 wickets in 23 against Netherlands. Steve Smith batting well scored 55 runs in just 42 balls and Green also played a good inning of 34 runs in just 26 balls and reached the total to 160 plus.
 Netherland bowling very outstanding in this match especially Roelof van der Merwe the star with the ball in the first innings by picking up 3 Crusial wickets just giving 12 runs in just 3 overs. Van Beek also picked up 2 important wickets by giving 35 runs in 5 overs with the Economy rate of 7.0. I think the Netherland have some chance of winning this match against big team Australia. The Netherlands managed to take 7 Australia wickets in the first inning Now They need to chase down 167 in 23 overs to win this warm-up Match.

The performance of the Australian batsmen was not good enough. Australia lost 7 wickets in just 23 overs. The Australian batsmen were able to provide a target of 16 descents. There is no way to say that the target is too big. Still, I think Australia will easily win this match. Although the Netherlands managed to qualify for the World Cup, this team is not very strong. Their batting order is quite weak. And in today's match also we see the poor batting of Netherlands. Netherlands lost their first four batsmen to collect just 15 runs. I don't think Netherlands have any chance of winning this match. Probably the Netherlands team will be able to collect up to 80-100 runs.

Just like most people said, this will be an easy fight for Canelo and he shouldn't be slacking on this one because if he loses the fight, it will be disastrous and shameful for him. imagine losing to a guy who is not that active and came to their weight division just to finish him off. neither both boxers underestimates their opponent but whoever wants to win this fight, better to practice and work hard because this is a lifetime opportunity, especially for Charlo, he should be motivated by being the underdog in this fight.

There's nothing to be ashamed of here; his opponent is also a champion, and we don't know what kind of training he has. Canelo won't be a dominant fighter forever, so in case he loses here, he still has a chance to bounce back as it's never the end for him. The schedule of the fight is very close, and soon the speculation will be over as we will finally see a big fight for Canelo. Well, the majority believes Canelo will win, but this is boxing, and nothing is guaranteed even if he thinks he will easily win.

Nothing is guaranteed indeed, more about how both fighters will prepare for this upcoming fight and how they will execute their
fighting strategy to win against the other.

Bookies again are for Canelo and the majorities will agree to that and odd might be taken or some will take the other options for betting on this schedule fight and will support Canelo either in a KO or by round wins.

We can only speculate, but the result will rely on how they will bring their best while inside the ring.

@yazher this is going to be absolutely disrespectful loss if he does end up losing. I am talking about Canelo. He is also absolutely better on paper. There is no reason for him to lose this fight. And if he, for some reason actually ends up losing, it is going to be really hard to explain. It is actually going to be inexplicable in my opinion. Recently his fighting has not been consistent. That is why I believe some people are actually thinking that he might end up losing. But I don't think that is going to happen because he is going to go into this fight, being really confident, knowing that his opponent does not fight in this weight class. For me personally, I am supporting Canelo. He is just better going into this fight.

It's quite impossible for sevilla to win the game but barcelone shall also be careful to anticipate the surprises that may come from sevilla anytime. I hope that sevilla will play even better than the previous season caused by sevilla needs to boost its club now.
Seeing sevilla performed so badly was a classic thing but i hope if the club will able to make some changes.
Nothing is impossible in football, because in football anything can happen, even though the two clubs that will meet display very different statistics.
I think it's clear that Barcelona will dominate the game, because that's what they're used to.
I also hope the same, hope Sevilla can play well, yes at least they can break every attack that Barcelona will launch. Winning is a very difficult thing for them to get, so a draw is a good result for them to get in this match. Their target does not need to be too big, although victory is the best thing.
While Barcelona has 17 points in the league, Sevilla has only 7 points, and Barça is doing really well these days. Real Madrid lost points, while Barcelona continued to maintain its form. Now I expect the same from them against Sevilla. They get an easy win against Sevilla and show once again that they are the biggest favorites for the championship.

Barcelona team is much stronger than Sevilla at the moment. The performance of the Sevilla team is now very poor. But let's not forget that this team is very experienced. They won the Europa League last season. And so if Barcelona make any mistakes in this match, they are likely to lose points. Barcelona are favorites in this match but they have to perform very carefully. Sevilla usually play defensive tactics. And so Barcelona should adopt an attacking strategy in this match. Barcelona dropped points against Mallorca in the last match. And so if Barcelona wants to stay in the title fight, they have to get full points in this match. If not, the team will fall further behind Real Madrid.

In the last two games Barcelona have been struggling to get to that winning ways like a comfortable winning ways.
Barcelona will be hosting Seville a stubborn side is going to be very difficult for the home team and I can't say who's going to win but as it is a draw is certain on this fixture.
Xavi needs to get his team together if they want to win this game because in their last game they played out 2-2 which would have taken them to the top if they had won and always coming from behind won't help them in this fixture if they let Seville to scored first, so I just want to see a great game tonight.

Firstly I will say that Barcelona's past record against Sevilla is very good. Barcelona are unbeaten in La Liga against Sevilla in the last 5/6 years. They played very well against Sevilla. And I think Barcelona will win today's match too.

But I agree with you. If Sevilla's players can somehow score the first goal of the match then we are in for a very entertaining match. When Sevilla scored the first goal of the match, they played poorly defensively. They want a narrow victory. So Xavi will have to try to keep his defense tight and put Sevilla's players under pressure from the start of the match. I expect Barcelona players to get 3 points easily in this match.

Small news.
After taking the Moto Gp, India is thinking big.

They want the F1.

I think this marriage will be done, for sure they have the audience considering how big is their population.
When F1 started in India back in 2011, I already thought it's here for long. But everything ended just after 3 year contract. But if India now have serious intentions, it probably will be different story. As I understand, they're using same track like in past.
One important question - what track from current calendar they're going to replace?

They do look to be serious. And I think that's because people in India currently are pretty crazy about cars. There are a lot of really good drivers in India as well. 2011 was a very different time. if I remember correctly, even the Internet was not accessible for the majority of the population in India. But now that is not a problem. So a lot of people are actually going to be interested and will also be able to watch the competition. Of course that is going to attract a lot of sponsors as well. So the earning is going to be good as far as I am concerned.

I have seen the last few Newcastle games. This team is in a very good rhythm right now. They shared the points with Milan in away matches, with an impressive 8–0 win over Sheffield in the Premier League. And yesterday won 1-0 against big opponents like Manchester City. Newcastle players are very confident at the moment. Newcastle will be looking to win the home match against PSG.

The performance of the PSG team is very erratic. The attacking performance is completely dependent on Mbappe. If Mbappe does not play well, the team will not win against Newcastle. But Luis Enrique is a very experienced coach. He will build his squad with the aim of getting full points against Newcastle.
Newcastle United is full of confidence after two consecutive wins in the Premier League when they beat Sheffield United 8-0 and positive result when they eliminated Manchester City in the EFL Cup. Its seems enough for Newcastle United capital against PSG on Champion League upcoming match, get first points away from AC Milan on the first match, PSG must get first three points if want secure one position place for qualifying to next round. Current Group F standings, Newcastle United have one points and PSG have got first three points after winning over from Dortmund, its great opportunity if winning over PSG automatically have large chance for Newcastle United qualify to next round and more confidence against upcoming Champion League match.

Although I thought Newcastle would not qualify for the knockout rounds. Because the groups of group F are quite strong. However, with Newcastle's current form, if they can continue this streak, Newcastle are likely to qualify for the round of 16. They have resisted opponents like Milan. Now if the team is able to score points against PSG then the players will be more confident. On the other hand, Dortmund's situation is a bit weak now. I believe Newcastle will be able to secure full points against Dortmund if they can fend off opponents like PSG and Milan. Newcastle vs PSG looks set to be a very competitive match.

It seems that Newcastle has learned from their previous defeat and continues to make comprehensive improvements so that the team's performance returns to stability. Coach Eddie Howie must have also found the root of the problems faced by his players so that the results they obtained in all competitions were better.
Playing against PSG in the Champions League is not an easy matter and it was the same as before when Newcastle played Milan, but fortunately Eddie Howie's squad was still able to get 1 point from that match. I think with a squad that is much sharper than Milan, it is likely that Newcastle will lose this time and even though this is a home game it is not enough of a guarantee. In my opinion, Mbappe's absence does not have a significant impact because PSG still has quite productive strikers such as Goncalo Ramos and Kolo Muani. Moreover, if you look at the role of Achraf Hakimi, who has scored goals for PSG several times before, of course Newcastle should also be wary of that.
I think this is one of the matches where it will be difficult to predict the final result, because both teams have the same chance of winning because they each have their own strengths and weaknesses.
Newcastle has the advantage because this will be their home match, and usually Newcastle will play better at home and it is not easy for any team to beat them at St James' Park, but PSG has its own advantage as a team that is more experienced in the champions league, and PSG's new players seem to have started to adapt well to the team so that their game will make it difficult for the home team, but it is really difficult to predict who will win or maybe it will just be a draw.

With the rise of female gamers, females who are earning their own money, definitely there will be a lot more females who will associate with gambling.

But the reason why I think the casinos are not involving themselves too much with women population is because it is sometimes which is actually very problematic. A man understands what will happen when he puts his money on the line for gambling. Either they get the money back with a little something more or they lose the money. But they are never going to cry about it. The problem with women is that they do not take accountability. All it takes is for one woman to make a stupid video with her iPhone that she got scammed in a gambling situation or casino, and the casino is definitely going to face a lot of backlash.
I wouldn't agree to this at all, not even a single bit. First of all, we need to end up putting genders into generalization, I have a wife, a mom, an aunt and had grandma before she passed away, and none of them were alike at all, put them all on a casino and I guarantee you that there would be some that would be exactly like how you said, while the others just the opposite and all the things in between.

But, I also guarantee you that if you put me, my father, my uncles, all into a casino, there would be some who will not take accountability (my uncle probably lol) to all those who you said as well. That's why there is nothing like that at all regarding genders. My wife gambles all the time, and takes full responsibility at all times.

The world runs on generalisation. And women in general do not take accountability. Again that exception does not make the rule. Your wife might be an exception who takes accountability. But women in general do not take any kind of accountability. Women also feel entitled to a lot of things. Women also make decisions based on their emotions. I really think I shouldn't have to discuss this.

Again, I am talking about the general women population. Of course, there are going to be exceptions. But in general, if women are left alone I believe women to be women and do what a woman will do. And that is definitely a recipe for disaster in my opinion. Especially when it comes to making decisions about when to stop gambling.

Why should we not invest all our money in bitcoin but part of it in altcoins? Are you talking about diversification? Do you think investing in altcoins will reduce our risk? While all altcoins are dependent on the movement of bitcoin. Even if bitcoin crashes, all altcoins will disappear, the market will not exist without bitcoin. Investing in altcoins is not bad because many altcoins give better returns than bitcoin but there is nothing wrong if someone believes only in bitcoin, which is the safest coin in the market.

Altcoins will disappear after Bitcoin crash? No.
They will also crash with it? Yes.
I have been hearing a word called de-dollarization to be taking place and it will be replaced by some other real world currency as a chief reserve currency for making worldwide transactions because the inflation that has gone out of US' hands will make dollar stressed out at some point and it will see the worst crash in its index and will be worth nothing till US clears up some part of its debts. I think this will give boost to the value of btc against USD but remember, if USD goes weak against btc and all real world currencies too, then that increase will be worth nothing because it is not going to give you any profits if you come from another country and its currency becomes stronger against the dollar, for example the entire Europe.

Yes, when bitcoin crashes, not all altcoins will disappear, but most of them will disappear, you can easily see that during the last bear season and in previous bear seasons.
Many altcoin projects have disappeared or have not developed for a long time. Do you still see topcoins like NEM, EOS, LISK...? They were once potential altcoins and were expected to replace ETH.

The discussion is about bitcoin and altcoins, I don't think there is anything to do with politics and de-dollarization here. I really don't understand what you are talking about. I just want to say that there is nothing wrong if someone just wants to invest in bitcoin and say no to altcoins.
Sometimes, or even probably always, when there is a bull run, altcoins have more upside potential than bitcoin. Of course the top coins are constantly changing, but the same NEM, EOS or LISK in their season gave much more profit than bitcoin. But altcoins are a lottery and if we talk about the reliability of investments, then of course it is better to choose bitcoin.

Yes, some altcoins will bring better profits than bitcoin but high profits come with high risks, everything has its price so investing in altcoins is considered gambling rather than investing. I'm not against throwing money at altcoins but spending should only be a small portion and should be limited even if it brings higher returns. Don't just think about the profits we will gain but also think about what we will lose when talking about altcoins. Bitcoin is always the best choice.

Looking at the past trends, it is obvious that after a prolonged market correction, the price increases considerably from ATH and touches a new ATH. Yes, there are chances that BTC will touch new ATH in the coming years. Chances are that the price will increase after BTC halving next year. I suggest you not invest all your money in Bitcoin. Try to increase your portfolio and invest in some potential altcoins, i.e. ETH, DOGE, SOL, MATIC, etc. Invest some part of your savings into the crypto market, and use the remaining for your day-to-day expenses. Do your research before deciding because it's your savings that are at stake, so be cautious.

13  Economy / Speculation / Re: BITCOIN HALVING COUNTDOWN IS ON – WILL CRYPTO PRICES RISE? on: September 25, 2023, 02:27:17 PM
We don't know for sure whether the effects of the halving will be felt before or after the halving occurs. However, most people say that the effects of the halving will have a positive impact on the bitcoin market after the halving, usually it takes months before that happens. But whatever time it happens what I do now is buy bitcoin and hold it for a long period of time. Maybe I will release a small amount of bitcoin I hold in a bull market to make a profit and then buy it back in a bear market.
If we look at the history of previous halvings, it impacts the price, which can soar high after the halving. But this time, maybe we need to wait until the end of the year to see how the price develops. But hopefully not until the end of the year, Bitcoin prices will start to increase and will be in the $30k-$40k price range.

The current Bitcoin price is still very low, while at the last ATH, the Bitcoin price reached $60k. So there is a price difference that is too big so the Bitcoin price needs to be increased in the next few months until the beginning of the year. At least the price of Bitcoin needs to be in the range of $40k-$50k until the time leading up to the halving and only after the halving will the price of Bitcoin start to move upwards slowly or immediately increase significantly.

And it is true that we are still allowed to buy Bitcoin at low prices. If we can use it to our advantage, we will get big profits when the Bitcoin price is at its ATH. The important thing is that we already have a target price at which we want to sell the Bitcoin.

According to you, we need bitcoin to reach 40k$-50k$ before halving, only then will we have a bull market after halving? In case bitcoin remains below $30k when the halving occurs, we will have no bull market?

Halving can be considered a catalyst for us to have a bullish market, but that does not mean that when the halving is approaching, the market needs to increase and must increase. I do not believe that the halving is the only catalyst or factor influencing this market. I even believe that when the halving happens, bitcoin will still not be able to surpass $35k and will maintain that level for a while after the halving before the bull season arrives.

How do y'all watch football? Blasting Onana means you focus on stats and errors. You do not watch him closely and what he brings to Manchester United defense. We'll see the best of Onana when the midfielder's and defenses put heads together to do them jobs.
Onana movement to Manchester United has nothing wrong with it, the signature of Mason Mount has also not profited Manchester United nothing.

After so many years, it's time for him to leave since the coach has no plans for him in his project for the seasons ahead.
Onana brings confidence and good passing qualities. Clubs like Manchester City and Liverpool went through this phase. Onana is a strong man and WI do great. Too much of the negative criticisms. Manchester United fans  expects too much coz of the former high standards
Manchester united is currently at their poor form this season, despite winning Burnley, it's not enough reason to conclude the end of their strategically poor form, rather they keep focusing on the bright side. Erik Ten Hag is present to make things good for the club, good performance will be triggered by the Red Devils, just a matter of time. Blasting André Onana for his blunders in league games, he's likely comparable to David de Gea who made mistakes also. We should realized that no goalkeeper is perfect, they all have flopping and their best forms in Old Trafford.

Manchester United's overall performance is very poor. Their defense is weak. Due to the poor performance of the defenders, the team is not getting a better performance than the goalkeeper Onana. I don't blame Onana alone. Unless United's defense is strong, it would be foolish to think that the goalkeeper alone will deal with all the opposition's attacks. United's defense is understandably weak.

Manchester United's defense as well as their forward lineup is weak. More importantly, their performance is erratic. There is no experienced striker in the squad. They are counting on Hojlund's performance this season. But Hojlund is not experienced enough. He is also not able to perform well with United. If the attack doesn't improve, United's overall condition will never improve.

EPL game live, an entertaining game to watch. Though I'm patiently waiting for Burnley vs ManchesterUnited.
I don't think anything will be special in the match. Burnley is a very weak team. Burnley have just been promoted to the Premier League this season, and their performance is really poor in all their matches. They haven't been able to win any matches since the beginning of the season. I am sure Manchester United will make use of the opportunity. I see the match as an easy win for Manchester United because they will be playing against a very weak team. We know Manchester United's performance is also poor this season, but I am sure they will be able to win Burnley easily.
What will be interesting in this match is that we will see Manchester United. Will they return to playing funny with a much weaker opponent? or they can rise by taking advantage of the status of the opponent they will face this time. Of course, this makes us curious, because there are things to look forward to about their coach, Erik Ten Hag. I am sure he has prepared for this match very well. But for the result, I can't be sure what kind of result they will get.
The match is on, let's see.

I have no confidence in Manchester United's performance. Even if they lose, I wouldn't be surprised at all. The performance of this team is very erratic. Now I am enjoying the match live. Manchester United's performance is weak till 20 minutes. United are not able to attack much and even keep the ball in their possession. Burnley enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 64% of possession. However, United's performance against Bayern Munich was not bad, although they lost the match. If they can produce a similar performance against Burnley, United are likely to win.

Now England team has finished their batting and they performed brilliant in this match. In this ODI series, England seems to be very strong, and if first match completd there would have been 90% chance of England winning. Checking out score summary of this match England set a challenging target of 334 runs in 50 overs and losing 8 wickets for Ireland team. They have put a lot of pressure on Ireland team and their bowling performance not be going good. It looks that Ireland face difficulties to chase down this target.
A completely useless series for the both sides with England is playing their bench strength in this match which done good job in batting and have huge target for the Ireland but they is badly struggling in early overs and things are looking not favourable for them as well after losing 5 wickets inside 20 overs.
England won the 2nd ODI by 48 runs and lead the series by 1-0. England give a high targer of 334 runs in loss of 8 wickets in 50 overs. Will Jacks played an impressive innimg of 98 runs in just 88 balls and Sam Hain debt player scored 89 runs in just 82 balls batting amazingly. While chasing down the target of 335 runs Ireland team only manage to score 286 runs in loss of all wickets in 46.4 overs. George Dockrell played a good inning of 43 runs alongside with Craig Young 40 runs unbeaten in 44 balls but unable to chase down the target and loss by 48 runs. England is very strong team but they way Ireland played is quit impressive and have ability to bounce back in last match.

I expected a better performance from England. In the previous series, England won every match against New Zealand by a big margin. They won the last two matches by 181 and 100 runs respectively. I thought we would see a similar performance from England against Ireland. And they will win by a large margin. But England won by 48 runs. However, the performance of England's bowlers needs some improvement as they look to become world champions. I don't like the performance of any other bowler except England's Rehan Ahmed.

Today, Bangladesh bowled brilliantly from the start. Like the first match, Mustafizur Rahman bowled brilliantly today. So far Mustafizur Rahman has taken 2 wickets with 19 after bowling 5 overs. Bangladesh squad has been changed in today's match. Khaled Ahmed made his ODI debut today, picking up 1 wicket in the first over. Bangladesh's pace bowling is getting better today. So far New Zealand has scored 56 runs in 12 overs losing 3 wickets. Bangladesh will be far ahead to win the match today if they can get New Zealand all out before 250 runs.  Let's see how many runs New Zealand is able to give the target in the end.
That is true my friend,  especially for the 10 first over  was really  hard for New Zealand in today's match.  They are opener batsman can't do a little performance today,  and if we talk about Mustafizur Rahman bowling then  all ready New Zealand said that Mustafizur bowling  looks dangerous  for them,  and today's  its also proved.
But  we can't take New Zealand team likely still because  they have more 7 wicket to go  and I am seeing that they are recovering slowly.  However  I think their run rate was good  still for ODI match. But with the weather condition I doubt if the match goes to nil result today too, looking at the weather I think it will rain anytime.

New Zealand is playing well after losing the first three batsmen of the top order for just 36 runs. At the end of 20 overs, the team collected 98 runs after losing 3 wickets. Henry Nicholls and Tom Blundell are batting responsibly. However, they cannot score too much. The team collected an average of 5 runs per over. That is a good enough collection on this pitch. New Zealand in the phase to provide a target of 260 even if the batsmen can survive at the crease. Losing the wickets of Blundell and Henry will make it impossible for New Zealand to set a big target. At the moment they are doing their best to stay at the top of the crease.

Looking at the pictures of yesterday’s workout with the Warriors, it appears like they are are more concerned with Dwight Howard’s conditioning than his basketball skills. I think this is a good sign that he will be a Warrior next season. Usually during these workouts you see a lot of basketball drills and less conditioning workouts. Unless Dwight did something inappropriate yesterday (entirely possible) I think we’ll see a deal announced soon.
The skills are definitely there; he was a superstar during his prime. But he is aging now, already 37 years old, so he is not the same player anymore. However, if the team knows how to utilize him, he could be a significant factor for the team. His wide body could be very useful for Curry in setting screens, and he can also be physical inside in grabbing rebounds. In addition, CP3 would make him even better, so he better be in peak condition, as he might be the key to the Warriors' success this season.

@OgNasty I mean he is 37 years old. So people are definitely going to be worried about his conditioning. At the same time, basketball skills are also very important. Basketball skills are actually more important I will say. But both skills go hand-in-hand. One is pretty much useless without the other. Especially when we are talking about playing basketball. He was definitely a great player during his prime. But at this age, they are definitely not going to expect that kind of performance from him. If he is able to provide what they are expecting from him, I don’t think there will be any problems.

And I agree with @Distinctin that for him to be useful for the team, he will have to be in great physical condition.

It means that in today's time, because of the internet, I think the number of those who play gambling via online females has increased because the mobile device is now a necessity and everyone who has a cellphone can download gambling apps on their phones anytime. cellphone using their e-commerce wallets and bank accounts online.
Yes, that's true, increasingly sophisticated technology is currently having a changing impact on gender differences in gambling, where women can gamble like men, especially with the advancement of the internet, offline casinos are becoming less and less popular because currently there are hundreds or even thousands of online casinos that have appeared. every day and has many active gamblers, which may include many female gamblers.

I may not be able to provide statistics on gamblers by gender, but I often see in several places several women gambling while drinking coffee in a cafe and in other places too, I think this shows that women have the opportunity to gamble even in online casinos because what we have seen in offline casinos is only male gamblers who are seen to be very dominant there and now that the times are getting more advanced, all gender differences do not apply in gambling.

It comes as bit of a surprise to me that there isn't more research being done on this topic. From a casino point of view it would make sense to learn as much as possible about your customers to target their preferences more directly. In the gaming industry there is a lot of research being done. A few weeks ago I read that the average person gaming regularly is 33 years old and that there is a 50% female quote among newer gamers. With the rise of female gamers I would expect it to be similar in the casinos. If men are having fun gambling then woman should have too. The question is now if female gamblers are spending similar amounts as the men or if men are the better customers for the casinos. What I know from my personal experience is that woman are usually better at budgeting their finances and can keep a tighter control on expenses.

With the rise of female gamers, females who are earning their own money, definitely there will be a lot more females who will associate with gambling.

But the reason why I think the casinos are not involving themselves too much with women population is because it is sometimes which is actually very problematic. A man understands what will happen when he puts his money on the line for gambling. Either they get the money back with a little something more or they lose the money. But they are never going to cry about it. The problem with women is that they do not take accountability. All it takes is for one woman to make a stupid video with her iPhone that she got scammed in a gambling situation or casino, and the casino is definitely going to face a lot of backlash.

4. Bonuses that I never asked. When I deposit and see a bonus active I need to contact support to cancel it.
Most time people look for reliability and transparency and not bonuses. I do not like the bonuses as I always think something is attached to it. I always go straight placing my bets.

5. Crashino - most like scam, as withdrawal time on average is 2 days and you can cancel the request.
Be careful of this casino. Any casino that frustrates your efforts to withdraw your money and willing to allow you cancel your withdrawal obviously do not want you to withdraw, rather to deposit more. It is a red flag for me.

I think many of the casinos are actually made that way. They want you to bring money to perform gamble. The gambling scene and all the casinos in the world are based on somehow operating people's money and giving a share to some particular lucky winner. You couldn't call it a scam in itself in my opinion cause they are giving entertainment and taking their operating fees.

Yes, I agree most of them are definitely not going to try to give the best transparency to the people who bring money in to gamble. Because if they do not give transparency, there is a high likelihood that they will be able to keep more money. Just for example, if you have a bank account, you go into that bank saying that you need to withdraw $50. The bank says if you have to withdraw $50. You would have to wait for two days. Because the bank does not have that money right now. But right now you can withdraw $45. You would most likely withdraw the $45 because you need the money right now. Anyone who has millions of dollars in their bank account definitely has to face this type of situation.
