Taiwan Considers Taking a Wager On Casinos http://crushcasinos.com/taiwan-considers-taking-a-wager-on-casinos/ http://crushcasinos.com/taiwan-considers-taking-a-wager-on-casinos/#comments Thu, 30 Aug 2007 14:00:42 +0000 admin http://crushcasinos.com/blog/casino/taiwan-considers-taking-a-wager-on-casinos/ Yet Another Related Posts Plugin.]]> Hoping that the luck of a casino will rub off on them like that of their neighbors Macau and Singapore, an official said that Taiwan is considering wagering on casinos also to hopefully help with their tourism trade. Macau passed Las Vegas in gaming revenue last year and Singapore casinos has helped boost their property market as well so now there are plans for Taiwan to enter the casino industry as well.

A senior planning official said, “We are soliciting opinions within the state planning commission and after we’ve come to some consensus, we will also discuss the plan with other ministries.”

Taiwan has still got a ways to go though. Even if the cabinet gives its ok, the proposal still will face tuff competition in the Taiwanese parliament.

This is not the first time Taiwan has considered a casino. In 1990 they a casino was considered on the offshore island of Penghu, but opposition from legislators and some residents worried about the casinos social impact, halted the idea.
Media reports say that this proposal plans to issue licenses for casino operator in Pengu, and counties in the countries south, Chiayi and Pingtung. Declining further details, an official said, “We will give priority to the weaker economic areas for the licenses.”

Heartland Poker Tour Grand Series http://crushcasinos.com/heartland-poker-tour-grand-series/ http://crushcasinos.com/heartland-poker-tour-grand-series/#comments Tue, 28 Aug 2007 12:26:54 +0000 admin http://crushcasinos.com/blog/poker/heartland-poker-tour-grand-series/ Yet Another Related Posts Plugin.]]> The Heartland Poker Tour, while not drawing the same league of player as series like the WPT and WSOP, is definitely getting increasingly more recognition in recent days. Started by Todd Anderson and Greg Land in 2005, the tour has since grown annually. The HPT is currently watched by more than 50 million homes nation wide.

The Heartland Poker Tour Grand Series is ready to begin , with the 2,000+200 dollar buy-in Main Event scheduled for August 26th. The Grand Casino Mille Lacs, in Minnesota, will be hosting the series. There are planned nine events over eight days. Previously the HPT has drawn players from 37 states and 3 countries to compete in this series. The Main Event will feature a televised final table. The winner will not only receive an enormous amount of cash but will have a place at the biggest event on circuit the Heartland Poker Tour Championship Open.

The first four events will have an inexpensive buy-in of 175+25 dollar or less and all the winners will qualify for a place a major event during the series. All the events will be No-Limit Hold’em although Event 4 will be a bounty game: whoever busts out the celebrity players with a bounty on them will win 100 and a HPT jacket. Participants need only be 18 years old so expect the young and aggressive will be bringing the fire power all the way through the series.

Most recently a Home Depot employee, Dan Zogman won in the HPT Majestic Star event, which had a record-breaking 1,481 players. The Heartland Poker Tour approaches poker with the average player in mind. The buy-ins are low enough that almost anyone can play and the prize money isn’t something to miss out on, especially for your average middle class player. Zogman took home a cool $227,811 for his victory.
