Four horses to watch at the Galway Summer Festival

Published

on

The Galway Summer Festival is back and it’s set to run at Ballybrit Racecourse every day next week (26th July-1st August) — making it Ireland’s largest National Hunt racing meeting.

The event’s organisers had proposed a maximum of 5,000 racegoers per day. However, that idea was quashed by the Irish government, who have only granted an allocation of 1,000 spectators for each of the seven days.

Nonetheless, it will be great to see racegoers return to the course, albeit in small numbers. So, as we gear up to the exciting meeting, let’s take a look at four horses to watch…

The Shunter

Favourite to win the Galway Plate, according to the Galway betting oddsThe Shunter heads to Ballybrit with a Cheltenham Festival victory on his résumé. The Emmet Mullins-trained horse beat Farclas by three lengths to win the Paddy Power Plate at the Festival earlier this year, but he couldn’t replicate that feat at the Grand National meeting at Aintree in April, where he finished almost four lengths behind Protektorat in the Grade 1 Novices’ Chase. Third last time out in a Grade B Handicap Hurdle at Punchestown, Mullins will be hoping that he can get back to winning ways in the Galway Summer Festival’s feature race.

Belfast Banter

The Galway Hurdle tops Ladies’ Day’s card on day four of the meeting, and Belfast Banter is the ante-post favourite ahead of the two-mile, nine-hurdle race. The Peter Fahey-trained six-year-old had a fantastic end to last season, winning the Grade 3 County Handicap Hurdle from 33/1 at Cheltenham before backing that up with a victory from 9/1 in the Grade 1 Top Novices’ Hurdle at Aintree — the horse’s first victory at top-grade level. He’ll face stiff competition from Scottish Champion Hurdle winner Milkwood. However, with those two massive victories at the back-end of last season, you’d fancy Belfast Banter to see the race out.

Cavalry Master

With four successive victories from as many races to his name already this year, Henry de Bromhead’s Cavalry Master will be well-backed by the punters at 12/1 in the Galway Plate. The seven-year-old landed his first victory since 2019 in the Congratulations Minella Times Beginners Chase at Kilbeggan in April and he has only kicked on from there, with two Novice Chase victories at Killarney wedged either side of a win at Wexford. The Galway Plate will undoubtably be a step-up for Cavalry Master, but those four victories will have set him in good stead heading to Ballybrit.

Tiger Roll

There aren’t many bigger names in National Hunt Racing than Gigginstown House Stud’s prized asset Tiger Roll, and there’s no doubt that those lucky enough to have gotten their hands on tickets to this year’s Galway Summer Festival will be keeping their fingers crossed that the dual Grand National winner will feature in the Plate. The 11-year-old rolled back the years at this year’s Cheltenham Festival, beating favourite and defending champion Easysland by a huge 18 lengths to regain his Cross Country Chase crown. That’s the Denise Foster-trained horse’s only victory in his last seven races, though. So, whilst it would spark massive scenes of jubilation at Ballybrit if he was to win the Plate, a victory from 16/1 doesn’t seem likely.

How to master poker

Published

on

Although the poker boom has now subsided, the US card game continues to enjoy great popularity in online casino charts de. What looks like pure gambling to the outsider, however, is in truth associated with sophisticated tactics.

Read Good poker books

This is one of the oldest methods of learning poker. However, it should be borne in mind that there are so many poker books nowadays that it would be impractical to read them all. Moreover, some of them do not stand at the highest level. In addition, many strategic tips can also be found free of charge on the internet.

Watch poker video

Over the last decade, many “training” sites have been created on the internet, offering access to their educational materials for a smaller or larger fee. In many cases these are videos created by respected and winning professional poker players. They allow us to look into the minds of the best players and see the level we should be aiming for. Learning a lot of things that will come in handy on the way to this summit.

Learn to analyze hands

Hand analysis is a return to the hands played and a detailed look at them. During the game we are not able to pay attention to everything. Therefore, a later analysis of these hands allows us to see exactly whether we have made a good decision. And if not, what should it look like?
Online players can usually mark their interesting hand in the tracker, so it will be easier to find them for later analysis.
Live players must use special applications to quickly save the details of the hand. They can also use the simplest method: a sheet of paper and a pen.

View and analyze your statistics

Analyzing your database, which contains all the statistics about our game, is possible thanks to the previously mentioned tracking programs. They not only store our results, but also collect numerous statistics of our game.
Looking at these statistics, we can notice in our game leaks or lack of consistency in some spots. Moreover, thanks to the use of various filters, we can check how much money we win / lose in certain situations.

Use analysis programs

Programs that help us analyze our slottyway, in addition to tracking programs, can be divided into two categories.
The first is a variety of tools that we can classify into a broad category of equity calculators. They allow you to perform different types of equity calculations, store preflop ranges, and understand the implications of different runouts.

The second category includes programs that can be classified as GTO calculators. These are tools that generate optimal solutions and give us insight into decision trees. These programs are mainly recommended for advanced poker players, although everyone, even a novice player, should have at least one equity calculator.

Analyze total rivals

Population analysis has recently become very popular in poker. Many players devote the most time to it and consider it more profitable than working with GTO calculators.
Population analysis is, in other words, the analysis of trends among a given pool of players. Once we know the trends prevailing among our competitors (e.g. local casino or cash games on the given stakes), we can then develop strategies that will use their standard games. This requires special programs, which usually come in the form of add-ons to existing tracking programs.

Join a poker group

Some people absorb knowledge better in solitude, while others gain additional strength and motivation when they belong to a group. However, poker definitely benefits from learning together, because in this way you can draw on the experience of others and reflect your ideas from people who are at a similar or higher level of knowledge. This allows not only faster, but also more effective learning. So find people you can talk to about poker-whether it’s live or online.

Hire a coach

Private trainers cost money, but they are the best and fastest way to develop good poker strategies and habits. Not only will their advice be tailored to you and the stakes / formats / varieties you play, but you can also hear advice you won’t find in any public places.

Join the poker forum

Posting your hands for review and analysis by other players is a good way to better understand some strategies and learn something new. You don’t even have to post yourself-just read the hand comments that others have posted. Remember, however, to carefully approach advice from people you do not know-often they come from people who are guided by the motto “I do not know, but I will say”.

Do not forget about the game itself

Some people are so dedicated to learning that they forget about the game itself. But you can’t learn everything off the table. Some concepts and strategies can only be learned by applying them directly in action. It’s a bit like learning a foreign language: you can read a million books about Chinese, but you can learn it only by talking to people who know it.

Destruction AllStars Developer Delays Season 2, Releases New Patch

Published

on

destruction allstars

For all the potential its core game mechanics showed at launch, Destruction AllStars has sort of petered out into the background since its release earlier this year, and it hasn’t helped that the game’s post-launch support hasn’t exactly been the most stellar. Season 1 kicked off nearly three months ago, but with the next season approaching, developer Lucid Games has announced in a blog update that that’s been delayed.

Season 1 is being extended so that the developer can focus on “the game’s core experience”. New tiers have been added to the current battle pass, but a new patch for the game has also gone live, with brings several improvements and additions. Latency has been improved to prevent “ghost hits”, while cooldowns for all slams on all vehicles have also been “drastically” reduced.

Meanwhile, the patch also adds several new things to the game:

  • New high quality skins and cosmetics
  • Online parties for solo game modes
  • A new Quickplay playlist
  • Buffs to AllStars and Hero Vehicles
  • Two Reworked Mayhem maps with smaller arena size (going live in a few weeks)
  • Three new premium AllStar Pass tiers
  • Refreshed shop interface

Destruction AllStars is available exclusively on PS5.

Crimson Desert Delayed to Unknown Date

Published

on

Crimson Desert

Adding on to the list of delays this season is Pearl Abyss’s Crimson Desert. The developer/publisher announced on Twitter that the open world title was being delayed in order to “dedicate more time to adding new ideas for an even deeper, more enriching game.” While it’s looking to “create the best possible experience,” the team also wants to ensure “the health and safety of everyone involved in delivering the game”.

Announced at The Game Awards 2020 and originally slated to release this Winter, Crimson Desert serves as a prequel to Black Desert. Though the latter is an online MMO, Crimson Desert is touted as a single-player title focused on a band of mercenaries in Pywel. The player controls Macduff who is haunted by his past and must lead his band to success. Combat appears to be based on Black Desert’s responsive hack and clash gameplay but more grounded and visceral.

While a new release date or window wasn’t announced, Pearl Abyss said it would provide an “updated schedule in the future.” Stay tuned for updates, whenever they may be revealed. Crimson Desert is being developed for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
