The week in pictures: October 14th – 20th

Weekly news in pictures

The world last week wobbled between the tragic and the blessed, the diseased and the drunken, so lets look back at what went on

The tragedy of the numerous avalanche that struck Nepal last week has left 39 people dead so far and more are likely to be recovered in time. A mammoth rescue effort was swung into action as trekkers and climbers were slowly rescued by locals, guides, the emergency services and military. Over 400 people were taken to safety as the search continued throughout the weekend in this remote mountainous kingdom which is a favorite with altitude junkies.The successful negotiations in Nigeria, on the other hand, have been hailed as a major diplomatic victory for both sides with the upshot being that the schoolgirls so alarmingly kidnapped from their schools in the summer may well be back with their friends and families in the very near future ending their months of captivity. The negotiations had been rumored but were only confirmed after the successful arrangement of the truce last week.

There’s no sign of a truce on the street of the Mong Kok district of the modern metropolis that is Hong Kong with the authorities having sent in police to remove barricades and protestors from blocking major streets within the city. However successful they were initially by the end of the day many of the protestors and their obstructions had returned leaving the Chinese-run government with an ever decreasing number of options.

Which is probably true of the crew of the Russian submarine the Russians are strenuously denying has got itself into trouble off the coast of Sweden. The denial rang a bit hollow when the Swedes claimed to have picked up a Russian distress signal and launched a search and rescue operation involving hundreds of troops, boats and aircraft to find the submarine Moscow refused to admit ownership of perhaps gambling that it will yet slip away.

Here are some pictures of the gambling events that made the news last week, on GamblingResults.

1. Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino was shut down due to an armed altercation involving different groups of Indian tribes.

2. Taj Mahal Casino’s Fate was the subject of another round of discussions. In order to save the gambling venue and more than a thousand jobs, owners and union members are analyzing all the options.

4. Japan might get its casinos before the Tokyo Olympics, but the government remains committed to its mission: stopping locals from having any fun in there.

5. Swedish politicians took too long to ponder on what the country’s new gambling laws should look like – apart from… you know… liberal – so the EC is dragging them to European court.

6. Former WSOP champion Darren Woods is accused of opening 13 fake accounts on a poker site. Now there’s no need to jump to conclusions here, this doesn’t necessarily make him a fraudster; he could just be suffering from multiple personality disorder.

7. Researchers have picked the brains of problem gamblers, only to find that they don’t get much of a kick out of a normal day at the casino. Apparently, their brains are only satisfied once they’ve spent way too much money!

Meanwhile President Obama has appointed an Ebola Tsar to assist in combating the hysteria sweeping his country that might well explain why New Hampshire had a pumpkin festival turn into a full scale riot.

Blackjack Expert Beats Casinos for $15,000,000 – Don Johnson

May 25, 2011

A blackjack expert beats casinos, and the media can’t believe it. Over the course of six month, a professional blackjack player and handicapper from Bensalem Pennsylvania, unleashed the fury of the ancient gods upon the dilapidated sewer that was once known as Atlantic City.

Don Johnson, blackjack expert beats casinos, not just one but three major casinos for over $15 million playing ultra-high limit blackjack card games. In December of 2010 he began his six month long session by decimating Caesars Atlantic City to the tune of $4,230,000. Between last December and April of 2011 he took $4,900,000 from the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

This April, he assassinated Tropicana Casino for $5,800,000 in 12 hours of intense $100,000/hand blackjack. Tropicana CEO was fired by the board for allowing a known blackjack champ to play at such high limits. By the end of April, Tropicana made the history books, by becoming the first casino in the 34 year history of Atlantic City to lose over an entire single operating month when the blackjack expert beats casinos. So that how things go in atlantic city when the man with the plan destroys a live casino.

Don Johnson stated during a brief interview with Atlantic City Star News that he hasn’t cheated in any way and that he is not a part of a global card counting cartel. He said he began playing $25/hand blackjack card games 15 years earlier and moved up to the ultra-high limits.

Blackjack expert beats casinos – Yess!

“Eventually, some blackjack expert beats casinos would have whack them. I’m glad it was me. I’m not breaking any laws. I’m beating them with my own skills,” Johnson said at the conclusion of the interview.

In fact, American casinos no longer want him as a guest. He is already banned by Harrah’s and Caesars in Las Vegas and Trump Taj Mahal Casino and Resorts Casino in Atlantic City. “I don’t think they will let me play anymore. If I don’t play blackjack, you wont hear much more because I would go to the horse races.”
