Golf: Bets from the Short Grass

As we move into a slow of professional sports, golfers can focus on the surest bet of all — themselves! Getting together for a game of golf presents opportunities to get some action, however, it helps to know the games before you play. In this column, I have composed some popular golf games that will keep your rounds exciting and hopefully profitable. While game formats might vary slightly depending on who you are playing with, these are some of my favorites.


Horseracing: The Meaning of Jockey Changes

Few factors can be as meaningful in handicapping a horse race as a jockey switch.
While even the best of jockeys lose two out of three races, when one of a circuit’s top riders hops aboard a horse it’s a reason to take a careful look at that runner.
When you can deduce a valid reason for the change, it’s time to head to the betting windows.
On Feb. 22, Chart Topper ran in an optional claimer at Gulfstream Park on the turf. He was ridden by Abdiel Jaen, who is currently winning at about a 9 percent clip at the Florida track.

The Hardwood Hits Horseracing: Basketball Stars Involved with the Sport of Kings

Today marks the official start of March Madness, and basketball is on everyone’s mind! This is a wonderful time of year for those of us who enjoy both horse racing and basketball, with major Kentucky Derby preps coinciding each weekend with the excitement of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

However, it’s not just us railbirds and racing fans who enjoy the combination of hoops and horses – let’s take a look at ten popular basketball figures who have been involved in the sport of kings over the years:


Phil Hellmuth, Robert Williamson III & Denny Crum to Host Annual Celebrity Derby Party May 1

Southern Gaming’s Derby Poker Celebrity Bourbon Bash, sponsored by Jim Beam and, is returning to the Derby week festivities for a fifth consecutive year. The annual Oaks Eve party and poker tournament is hosted by Hall of Fame coach Denny Crum and Poker professionals Phil Hellmuth, Jr. and Robert Williamson III and benefits Blessings in a Backpack and Thoroughbred Charities of America.

Formally known as the Derby Poker Championship, the event has become a must-attend Derby party that caters to an array of celebrities, athletes, jockeys, poker professionals and race fans looking to kick-off the Derby weekend in-style. Last year, the event raised just over $20,000 for Blessings and the Louisville chapter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and organizers are setting their goals event higher this year.


Poker Strategy: Mathematics in PLO & Phil’s Flaw

I played PLO very badly, in the sense that I wasn’t seeing one basic mathematical principle of the game. I can’t believe that I missed it all those years, but no one was coaching me on how to play the game.

After playing PLO for more than seven years, I finally learned something while watching “Houston Sammy” play one day.

Sammy is considered the best PLO player in the world, and one day in a big game in Tunica, Mississippi, I watched him get involved in a big pot.


Behind the Scenes: NASCAR Kasey Kahne’s Pit Crew

THINK OF AN NFL quarterback facing a two-minute drill with 90 yards to go. Now, drop that down to 14 seconds, and those 90 yards to 250 miles. No disrespect, Peyton, but that is pressure. In a sport like NASCAR, where winners are decided by tenths of a second, absolutely everything – a missed lug nut, a dropped gas can, a loose cap – counts and can cost your team a race. That’s what the pit crew of Kasey Kahne’s No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports team faces every week during the season, which began in Daytona in mid-February and runs through November.

Yet, for crew chief Kenny Francis and the crew of the Farmers Insurance Chevrolet, it’s less about pressure and more about performance. Each race week, the crew rehearses its moves like a dance company so each pit stop is an effortless replay of practice.



Horseracing: Triple Crown Handicapping Help

JUST AFTER 6 P.M. ON MAY 3, Stephen Foster’s compositional masterpiece, “My Old Kentucky Home” will serenade one hundred thousand emotionally charged zealots situated underneath the famed Twin Spires of Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. Subsequently, 20 optimum three-year old thoroughbreds will warm up over our nation’s most hallowed granular oval before attempting to commandeer the 140th Kentucky Derby.


In 1872, Col. Meriwether Clark Jr. (grandson of William Clark from the famed Lewis and Clark expedition) traveled to England and France where he witnessed Europe’s two most eminent horse races, the Epsom Derby and Grand Prix de Paris. Wholly inspired, Clark established the Louisville Jockey Club upon his stateside return and with it, Churchill Downs; the world’s most recognized thoroughbred horseracing cathedral.


Blackjack: Smart Strategy and Rules Review

Blackjack is the most popular casino table game and has been since 1965, shortly after Edward Thorp’s book Beat the Dealer became a sensation. Thorp correctly wrote that blackjack could be beaten by keeping track of the cards; in short, card counting. The general purpose of the game is to beat the dealer’s hand without going over 21. 

A player who knows the computer-derived basic strategy for playing his hands can keep the house edge around one-half of one percent – a loss of 50 cents per $100 wagered.

At first glance, blackjack is a simple game. But, there are few key strategies and suggestions to consider to help make your next session a winning one.
