Top 5 Twisted, Yet Fun Games of All Time

I have been a video gamer since growing up as a kid (back in the 1980’s), with my first game system being the classic NES, and I have played many different games since then. These games includes: Battletoads, Super Mario Bros, Sonic, Mega man, first person shooter games, roleplaying games, online games (such as Adventure Quest), and plenty of other hit games out there. Of course, I have also played plenty of twisted games too and some of them are surprisingly fun, humorous, and sometimes even popular, and in this article, I will talk about at least 5 of them.

Game #1 – Become a “thug” in the Grand Theft Auto Series

Ever wondered what it might be like living the life as a thug and getting involved in organized crime (such as gangs) without actually becoming a criminal? In the Grand Theft Auto series (with the latest installment being The Ballad of Gay Tony), you do just that. The GTA universe is a popular roleplaying game, usually based in New York City (also known as Liberty City, though some games feature other cities such as Miami in Vice City and Los Angeles in San Andreas) where you usually control a thug (such as Nikko in GTA 4) and do missions for various crimbe bosses throughout the city. Some quests involves petty crimes such as stealing a prized car that a certain crime boss wants, while other missions may have you assassinate people that have crossed the criminal organization you are a part of, such as delinquents. In GTA San Andreas, for example, Carl Johnson joins the Grove Street gang and gets involved in a gang war with rival gangs, such as the Ballas (though he also works for crime bosses such as El Salvador, Doctor Rosenburg, as well as a corrupt government agent named, Mike Torreno to name a few). Many of the newer games also have plenty of side missions you can do, such as spraying graffiti on select buildings in San Andreas, take on multiple girlfriends (CJ for example, can have up to 6 girlfriends), as well as doing smuggling missions (such as hauling freight from the badlands to Las Venturas while dodging police officers in San Andreas). Of course, on the side if you rather just play for fun, you could always go on rampages in the game, where you can steal cars, get a little trigger happy, obtain wanted stars and drive the local police crazy, drive like a maniac around the city, as well as trying to get your guy killed. By the way, you never really have to worry about getting busted or wasted in the game as your guy will simply respawn at the nearest hospital or police station, only to go on another rampage once more (by the way, never try this in real life a this aspect is very unrealistic of course). Similar games: Saints Row, Gun and Bully minutetowinitgames.com.

Here are some interesting stuff you can do in the GTA univers that you can’t get away with in real life:

Your primary form of transportation are cars you jack from unsuspecting people, and you can usually get away with it unless if there is a cop near by (who will try to bust you if he sees you jacking a car).
Cops will simply bust you, take your weapons and some of your money as a brige, and simply release you for even the most henious offenses (such as going on rampages). And when you get released, you can do more crimes as well, with the same results. Imagine doing that stuff in real life. You would probably go to jail for a very long time (or worse depending on the offense) for similar crimes committed in real life.
If your guy dies, he will simply respawn at a nearby hospital.
In GTA San Andreas, you can have up to 6 girlfriends at a time without having to worry about them getting jealous. In real life, trying to take on multiple girlfriends is quite risky as they do get jealous (at least from a guy’s perspective of course), and even the slightest form of disloyalty (such as cheating) can lead to disastrous results on a relationship, as was the case for Scott towards the end of the third season of the reality TV series, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” when Kourtney learns that Scott was cheating on her (though luckily for him, the two seemed to have gotten back together by season 4).
And plenty of other odd stuff that you can’t really expect to get away with in real life.
Game 2- Fight to the death in the Mortal Kombat Series

If any game were to take after the infamous gladiators events during the days of ancient Rome (where people fight each other to the death), it would probably be the Mortal Kombat series. On the surface, Mortal Kombat takes after similar fighting games, such as Street Fighter 2, where two opponents fight each other in matches consisting of three rounds, with the opponent winning at least 2 out of three rounds being the victor of the match. Usually, the loser simply gets knocked out in his/her losing round, with the winner moving onto the next level. However, in the Mortal Kombat series, there is a whole new twist to fighting: the winner of each match has the option of terminating his or her opponent using special finisher moves called, fatalities. If you have played any of the Mortal Kombat games, you would know that when you knock out your opponent during the final round of a match, the announcer (presumably Shao Kahn in most games) will say “Finish Him!” (or her if your opponent is a female character). When this happens, if you have five seconds or so (some games have cheat codes that allow you to disable the fatality timer if you want extra time to pull it off) to finish off your opponent by entering a certain button combination in the right sequence and in the right distance within the time frame (the exact move does vary by fighter by the way. Pulling a fatality (or similar move, such as animalities, friendships, etc) can be tricky at first, but if it is done correctly, a special tune usually plays, the screen goes dark, and your character will do a special move that basically finishes off his/her opponent. Each character has their own fatalities, by the way (Scorpion, for example takes off his “mask” and hurles fireballs at his defeated foe, while Sonya will blow a kiss of death at her foe that incinerates him/her instantly). The list of fatality moves goes on and on (some people have posted fatality demonstrations on YouTube by the way if you are curious about all of the moves), but you get the picture. By the way, if you prefer not to do fatalities, you could always do a friendship move (where your character “befriends” his/her foe), a babality (where your opponent gets turned into an infant), or even simply knock out your opponent with an uppercut. Despite the obvious dark nature to the Mortal Kombat saga, the games have been quite popular as there have been many sequels in the series (my favorite is probably Mortal Kombat Trillogy), several movies produced (with the latest one being Mortal Kombat Armageddon), a short lived cartoon series, as well as sound tracks released. Of course, this game is probably not recommended to the younger audience or people that are easily offended as these games definiately has death matches in them (similar to MTV’s Celebrity Death Match). Similar games: Killer Instinct

Game #3 – Play “God” Sims 2 (and most other games in the series)

I don’t want to sound blasphemous (I am a Christian by the way), but do you ever wonder what it might be like to play God for a day? It might sound wiered, but in SIms 2 (and similar games), you will pretty much be doing that. Sims 2 is an open ended game for the PC (though there are also versions on the consoles, such as Play Station 2) where you build a virtual home in a virtual community, along with creating a simulated family (consisting of a mother, father, kids, etc) that you will help manage as you play through the game. Sim families function much like a typical family you would see at least here in America: they work, have emotions, go to school (if they are sim kids), do chores, socialize with other sims, get into relationships, sleep, relax, watch TV, build skills for a job or career they have, and sometimes even raise a dog or cat (at least in Sims 2 Pets). You could simply watch them live out life and make their own choices, or you can intervine and give them stuff to do. For example, if they need to go to bed at a certain time in order to get to work or school on time and they are say watching TV, you could put it in their minds to go to bed, and usually they will. Maybe there is a person that you want your sim to meet or interact with, you can have your character strike up a conversation with another (complete with dalogue options of course, allowing you to choose how they interact with each other). Or maybe you need to help the sim keep their motives up (such as having them eat when their hunger stats are low, using the bathroom when their bladder stats get low, interating with other sims when depressed, etc). Of course, as “God” in their world, you can also take after Satan and abuse your powers and ruin the lives of your sims. Here is a breakdown of some funny and twisted stuff you can do to your sims:

Cause a sim to become a jerk around other sims. Whenever you have your sim strike up a conversation with another sim, dialogue options will open up, and while you can make your guy or girl friendly, you can also cause him/her to say and do things to be mean (such as insulting others, slapping others, tell lies, gossiping about other sims, or even picking a fight). By the way, be careful about creating fights between family sims as some sims will move out if they take too much abuse from other sims.
Sit back and do nothing. Usually the sim(s) will make bad choices and suffer the consequences for it (for example, if he/she misses work too often, he/she will get fired).
Allow kids to get bad grades in school (usually happens by allowing them to skip the school bus when it comes). The only downside to this is that they can be sent to military school if their grades get too low.
Kill off a sim. One way you can do this is simply by letting him/her to starve to death. Of course, there are plenty of other ways for a sim to die (such as electrocution, drowning in pools, getting scared to death by ghosts, etc). Once a sim dies, beware of the fact that they can come back as ghosts and haunt your sim family (by the way, in Sims 2, one can get scared to death if their mood is too low when the ghost is active in the house). By the way, one funny thing you can do in the PS2 version of Sims 2 is that you can actually control the ghosts, which can be quite hilarious as you can scare other sims, possess them, and even cause them to behave erratically (such as throwing up).
Cause your sim(s) to get abducted by aliens. Usually happens if they look into a telescope at night too often. By the way, in SIms 2 for the PC, there is actually a cheat I found a while back that allows your sim to get abducted at will instead of by random and even caused my entire sim family to get abducted by aliens as well).
If you are a control freak, you can also turn off free will (it is usually on by default) and bend them to your will. Can be useful when dealing with a stubborn sim that won’t listen to you when you give them a tas k to do (no matter how foolish it is).
The list goes on, but as you can see, Sims 2 can be quite twisted when you think of it and yet it has been quite popular especially among the younger audience, and has spawned many sequels (including Sims 3), YouTube videos, as well as console versions of the game which tend to be a bit different from the PC versions (in the PSP version of Sims 2, for example, the game is more of a roleplaying game where you control this dude who finds himself in Strangetown, a desert city that has lots of paranormal happenings in it, and go on a quest to stop an evil genius from taking over the city and escape the ghosts and aliens infested town).

Game 4 – Play as Alien Invaders in “Destroy All Humans!”

Games involving aliens have been quite popular probably since the days of Atari (such as Space Invaders) and have evolved quite a bit since then. There have been plenty of different games and even films in this genre, with titles you are probably familiar with including: Space Invaders, the Simpsons Game (Kang and Kronos launch an alien invasion near the midpoint of the game), Independence Day, the Star Wars and Star Trek sagas (not all of the alien race are hostile in Star Wars or Star Trek, of course), Aliens vs Predator, the Contra series, as well as even the Halo series (where you get a hostile alien race bent on wiping out the entire human race). Usually you fight against the aliens, however in “Destroy All Humans”, you actually get to play as the aliens themselves, controlling an alien named, Crypto who is a part of the Furon empire, an alien race that wants to acquire human brains for some odd reason. The game is pretty big and spans many missions, starting with Crypto crash landing in farmlands and terrorizing both cows and farmers alike, and later with Crypto launching a full scale invasions against towns and cities. And yes, you do play as the bad guys in this game as your job is to conquer Earth (particularly North America as the game is centered in the United States). Besides terrorizing civilians, you can also take on human form and blend in with the crowd (can be useful for infiltration missions, for example), go up against government agents (such as the “men in black”), do mind control on people, making them do as you wish, razing villages with your flying saucer, as well as taking on huge bosses that try to stop you in your invasion (which is natural of course when you are controlling a hostile alien race bent on the destruction of the world). Despite the twisted nature of this game, it can be quite humorous when Crypto goes on rampages, along with creating hysteria among citizens, harassed cows, destroys buildings using his saucer, as well as battling government agents trying to stop Crypto. Similar games: Alien Homid and Overlord

Game 5 – Conker’s Bad Fur Day (also known as Conker’s Live and Reloaded if you have played the Xbox version)

Platform games have been popular probably since the debut of Mario Bros in the 1980’s, and have spawned many popluar titles in the genre, with hit titles including: Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Kirby, Castlevania, Crash Bandacoot, the Mega Man series, as well as the SImpsons Game. Many of these games have similar themes: you play through different levels in various kinds of terrain, go up against an evil villain and his/her cronies (such as Dr Robotnik in the Sonic the Hedgehog series), fight plenty of huge bosses (usually cronies and close associates of the evil genius, unless if you are on the final showdown), and save the day (such as recuing Princes Peach from Bowser in Super Mario Bros). Most of these games are obviously geared more towards the younger audience (barring some games, such as the newer Castlevania games given the “M” ratings on some of the newer titles, such as “Curse of Darkness”), especially in the case of games like Mario Bros and Sonic, where kids will usually play these games more than adults do. Anyways, with that said, there another platform game that I have played through that is quite twisted when you think of it: “Conker’s Bad Fur Day” (I played the Xbox version by the way). Conker’s Bad Fur Day appears to be a typical 3D platform game (Super Mario 64 style), complete with a storyline, boss fights, an evil genius to defeat (namely the Panther King), and many colorful stages to play through. However, if you have checked the rating for the game, you would probably see the “M” rating. That is because Conker’s Bad Fur day is pretty much a platformer that is geared more towards an older audience. Here are some features in this game you will usually not find in most other games in this genre

Texas Holdem Games Online – How to Win

Many poker online players starting out can’t seem to win right away when converting from free texas holdem online to playing at real money poker tables. Their problem usually is jumping into ring games aka cash games without the proper bankroll and mindset. If you are just starting out and you deposit $50.00 which most player’s do which is the minimum on Full Tilt Poker and poker stars and should play Sit-N-Go’s strictly to build your bankroll. Start off by playing $2.00 +.20 until you at least have $110.00 to $150.00 established bankroll. At this point, you can jump into $5.00 +.50 Sit-N-Go’s. I STRONGLY recommend never playing cash games. They are nothing but trouble and in the long run you will lose TONS of money especially if you are just starting out. You will go on TILT and deposit over and over again as soon as your aces get cracked once and you lose over $100.00 in a single hand. Trust me, I have been there and it is not a good feeling. It’s best to walk away though if you decide to play cash games and this happens to you. Turn your computer off immediately and do something else such as jog, watch tv, read, etc… whatever you like to do to take your mind off things. Even take a break and read some online poker reviews or the poker news on message boards. Look over how to play texas holdem again and reassess your game. Discover your weaknesses and take notes on your opponents when you do decide to play.

This is the same thing for Sit-N-Go’s. If you are constantly suffering horrible beats and your texas holdem hands are just not winning, TAKE A BREAK! It can happen to the best of us, no matter how good your game is. You can go in with the best texas holdem odds of winning the hand, and you can come out a loser every time that week. The next week after your break, you can go on a tear and those coin flips that you lost a week ago when you went on a cold run of cards, your winning those flips EVERYTIME.

Poker online is a game agen slot of skill mixed in with a little luck. Just enough luck to win the coin flips even though you are percentage points a head to win the hand. Eventually if you play great texas holdem hands you will be rewarded in the long run. You can’t possibly get sucked out every time and other player’s horrible play has to catch up with them sooner or later. If a player puts a bad beat on you, just smile and even say nice hand, because in the long run you will be taking their money over and over again. Playing for real money is an adrenaline rush and you must be on top of your game. Stay focused and take notes on your opponents and you will be extremely profitable. I wish you the best of luck in your future poker career.

Limo Hire Prices – Different Aspects

The economic events of the recent times force us to think twice before spending our money. Hence, nobody is surprised when people take long time to decide on limo hire prices before they commit. Prices for limo hire differ considerably, but most often the limo hire market is similar to other markets in the sense in all these places you get what you pay for. However, people are still curious to know the limo hire prices for a typical night out. And they don’t find it easy to get the answer to that question since limo hire prices vary from £250 to £750.

There are various valid reasons for variation in the price: First, the limo model you are planning to hire. The Chrysler 300 “Baby Bentley” limos, for example, charge higher limo hire prices than the Lincoln Town Car limos since the former have a new shape and style and they have been available only since 2005. For the Hummer H3 limos also, hire prices are higher since they made their appearance only a couple of years back. These cars have a huge demand from youngsters for their school prom and trips to nightclubs during weekends. Second, the age of the limo. The limo hire price of a 2009 Lincoln Town Car limo is undoubtedly higher than a 1999 Lincoln Town Car. For the former, the seats and upholstery would typically be new, plus the latest fibre optics and laser lightning, designer drinks bar and ice containers, DVD flat screens, first-rate sound systems, intercoms, etc. However, it does not mean that you won’t get such treatment in the older limos.

Another factor that can affect the limo hire prices is the service. Companies differ in their offers of service. Some companies offer just one way trips while others might offer a cruise round the city along with stops for photos or drinks. Some companies may include soft drinks, or sometimes French champagne in their price. Some demand other expenses like premises, office staff and bespoke websites. All for the pleasure and comfort of the customer Limo Hire Croydon.

Prices of the limo hired should not vary much because of the distance travelled except for certain situations like a football match at Wembley from the north of England. Limo hire prices should typically reflect the original cost to the operator. Compared to a local hire where the limo is out for a full day or a whole evening, a long trip of, say, sixty miles to the city and back will come up to only a few extra miles and a little more fuel, which in turn can give an unforgettable journey.

The occasion for the hire also influences the limo hire prices. For example, for an event like a wedding, the limo provided will also be formal, added with the ribbons and bows, flowers, Champagne and even a formal chauffeur. Limo hire prices for a school prom are normally high due to high demand. Around June, even the chances of finding a limo for hire are less, let alone getting a limo for less price. On peak times like Friday nights, weekends, and special events like Royal Ascot, the FA Cup Final and the Grand National, the prices are very high.

Another factor that can affect the limo hire prices the size of the limo. For a fourteen- or sixteen-seater Hummer, the price would be double the price of a Lincoln Town car. This is because the purchasing prices of larger limos is higher or even twice the amount of smaller ones. Also, larger limos drink more fuel – some Hummers go lesser than ten miles per gallon. But the size of the limo should not be a reason for worry for you since you can always fill up the large limo with friends or family and share the cost.

1 of 3 – How to Watch NFL Football Online

We learned how to watch NFL football online in one of the most bizarre settings you can imagine. Trust me if we could figure it out in the situation we were in, you should have no problem. If you are in a rush, you can always scroll down to the end of this article and click on the obvious link. If you have it, kick back a second, read this story about how 3 “Bionic Chronics” who were cleaning up their act, learned to watch NFL football online and how it became key to their recovery. Just read and you too will learn how to catch live, full NFL games online.

We met in a clinic for substance abuse. It was within these walls of rehab we learned how to watch NFL football online.To give you an idea of how difficult this feat was to be, you must consider this, computers are not allowed inside the facility. At time of check in we had no idea that football was to become such a huge issue. No prior arrangements had been put into place. Consider yourself lucky, you have a computer in front of you as well as an Internet connection. Your ability to watch NFL football online is just a couple clicks away. You don’t have the obstacles in front of you that we had.

One week into my stay at “Hotel Hina Mauka” (rehab), two guys were discussing the results of the last Chargers preseason game and the upcoming season opener. WHAT! I had been so out of it, I didn’t realize it was that time of year. This was the first time I was asked, “Do you know how to watch NFL football online?” They told me the counselors laughed when they asked if we were going to be allowed to watch the games on the TV.. But you are dealing with addicts here. If we want something we will get it. At the time we wanted to watch football. Rest assured we would find a way. We felt that if we could get a laptop there would have to be a way to watch NFL football online. We had to bust-a-move if we were to conquer our new mission.

First step was to have someone smuggle a laptop into the facility. Fortunate for us, we had an advanced skill set for such a task. One out of facility NA meeting and one in house NA meeting later, I was the proud owner of a laptop that was actually in my possession. Complete with a wireless connection via a wireless service provider…Sweet! Step 1 of the mission was complete.

Before moving on to step 2, how to actually watch full NFL football games online, we owed ourselves a pat on the back. To pull off getting the computer was a great accomplishment given we did not know anybody on Oahu upon arriving. I was from Kauai and they were from Maui. Don’t discount the importance of our watch NFL football online mission. We a projected stay of 90 days at “Hotel Hina Mauka” that is about 3/4 of a NFL Football season that we were not going to accept missing.

Our combined Internet skills on a scale of 1 -10 would have been about a 2. But we knew enough to go to Google and type in how to watch football online But this gave us a bunch of results for soccer. So we asked the all knowing Google how to watch NFL football online. There was what appeared to be an endless amount of results for our search of how to watch NFL football online.

It appeared that our quest to learn how to watch NFL football online would soon be over with all these options. So we started clicking…. What? We didn’t want to buy a wrist watch of our beloved Chargers. (lots of wrist watch results) We began to question the sobriety of this Google dude. We did check out NFL.com. They offered NFL Field Pass. But that was just a radio feed so we passed on NFL Field pass. We learned more at NFL.com that would later become the catalyst to ensure our ability to watch any NFL game online. But that is getting a head of ourselves.

Easy Tips For Improving Your Online Poker Game

When you play poker online, you have options available that you don’t have at the card room or at your regular home game. Taking advantage of these extra options can improve your online poker results. Let’s take a look at some things you can take advantage of when playing your poker online.

1. Choose the Right Site- Simple, huh? Play at a site where you feel comfortable online dealer 918kiss. Find a site where the competition is soft and plentiful. Find a site that offers the games or tournaments you are looking for. Finding the right site is a matter of personal preference. Check out several sites and find the one that’s right for you.

2. Choose the Right Game- Take advantage of your online poker room’s lobby. Most lobbys list such basic information as flop percentage, number of hands played per hour, and average pot size. You can scout the different tables from here. Also, if you have a buddy list; you can search for players that you know to be weak.

3. Have a buddy list- If you play regularly, you’ll see some of the same players again and again. You should quickly be able to tell the tendencies of many players. When you find a player whose game you can exploit, put him or her on your buddy list. You’ll find plenty of “buddies” if you pay attention.

4. Pay Attention- When you play online it’s easy to become distracted. Very easy. Let’s see… there’s e-mail, the baseball game you’re watching out of the corner of your eye, the phone, the kids, the dog. And, since all you have to do to play online is to just fire up the computer, it’s easy to play when you are distracted or tired.

5. Play Only When You Are Prepared and Rested- Imagine what an advantage you would have over your average opponent if you just followed this rule. Many players play online on a whim. Maybe they’ve been online for hours and just impulsively click on their favorite poker site just to unwind. Likely the only thing that will be unwinding is their bankrolls. So give your playing sessions a little bit of thought before you play.

6. Play for only a Set Time or Specific Number of Hands- Don’t fall into the trap of “just one more hand” syndrome. Before you start determine a specific time limit or hand limit to give your game focus. Playing for just one more hand has a way of turning into many more hands. And, if your playing with a just one more attitude, I doubt if you’re paying much attention or taking any notes.

7. Take Notes- This is a great way to keep your focus when you’re not in a hand. Develop your own shorthand for keeping notes. For instance, I might write, “CC w/ junk” (cold calls with junk) if I’ve noted a player who continually comes in for two bets with hands he shouldn’t.

8. Use a Four Colored Deck if Available-Why wouldn’t you. The online card icons are much smaller than real world cards. It’s easy to mis-read a club for a spade or vice versa. If changing to a 4 colored deck saves you from making one mistake, it’s well worth the time it takes to change.

9. Adjust the Chat Feature- Make sure this is set to your preferences. Maybe you like the chat. It keeps you involved and you pick up tells from others chat. Great, leave it on. But if you find yourself in anyway distracted, turn it off. Many sites also let you turn individual player’s chat off.

10. Avoid the Auto Functions- If you sometimes use the auto buttons to “Raise Any Hand” when you’re strong or “Call Any Hand” when you have a good draw, good observant players will pick up a tell on you. Best practice is to always wait for your turn and try to take the same amount of time to make your play.

Hard Money Lenders Myths Debunked

What is a hard money loan?

Before any misconceptions are made you should know what a hard money loan is! A hard money loan is a type of loan in which private investors lend you money on the value of their physical property. This is not your average loan, where money is taken from a bank or another financing business Money Lender.

This asset based loan financing is very secure as it basically receives funds secured by real and actual owned property. The process can be described as “personal.” More evaluation is done by the broker to better suit the needs of the investor in need. In essence this type of loan is more personalized because a broker will be able to work more closely with the client, in comparison to getting a loan from a bank.

Common Myth: Not Trustworthy?

For people who are not familiar with financing terms, hard money lending is a legitimate option to financing an unfinished construction site and can be easier to go through than a bank. Banks usually have more rules and regulations, and can take longer to come to you with an answer on your pending request.

The reality is that people who turn to hard money loans usually do it for a reason. These reasons can range from, not having passing credit, to not having any credit at all. There are times where a project is too risky and a bank will not take the risk. That is not the case for hard money lenders, as they analyze the situation more than the banks and charge a higher interest.

This myth is debunked because these lenders are and have to be credited and approved businesses by the state just like a bank would.

Common Myth: Hard money lenders are the “loan sharks” of the finance industry?

This myth is one of the more offensive ones to people who work in the industry. Hard money lenders are usually successful business people within the community they invest in. Simply trying to benefit the company and the client. It is not right to portray investors in that light. In some situations hard money lenders are the ones who can be the game changers in saving a project.

This myth is debunked because you can’t prove that these lenders are in the same water as loan sharks!

Common Myth: Hard money loans are difficult to obtain?

Nothing is easy! There is always a possibility that something can be difficult to obtain. But these lenders do in depth research on your needs and situation, which usually impedes some of the difficulty. In most situations little information is needed, the information needed though is usually based on the value of the property. This is a very different approach compared to a bank where they might take weeks to review with investors and committees. What makes these loans even more accessible is they can work with properties in poor conditions and are able to quickly fund.

This article will discuss what chronic pain sufferers are looking for in an effective pain relief product and offers a recommendation for a product that appears to be already helping many people manage their chronic pain.

Is There An Ideal Pain Relief Cream?

Consider this: there is no known cure for chronic pain. There is no pain relief medication yet on the market today (prescription or over-the-counter) that will permanently cure chronic pain. Hence, the objective of many people with chronic pain (according to research) is to manage this pain safely, quickly and affordably! Several other research studies have determined that people want their ideal pain relief cream to be odorless, fast acting, natural and organic ingredients, safe, no side effects, no stomach upsets and no adverse reactions. And because pain management tends to be a lifelong process, these people are also looking for an affordable pain relief cream product!

Online Texas Holdem Poker Strategy: Maintain Focus at the Poker Table

There’s no doubt about it, some people are just better at poker than others. They appear to win consistently and seemingly at will. So this leaves many with a few questions which linger on the mind.

Could it be that poker is only a game of chance with no other forces to play upon besides the fickle Lady Luck?

What makes a good poker player a great poker player?

Is there a way in which I can be a more successful poker player?

If these questions have been yours at one time or another, then you’re certainly not alone. Millions of average poker players would like to enhance their gaming skill, and there are tons of products out there selling every day which promise to make you a better poker player. Poker players and wannabe poker gurus spend hard earned cash every day to learn the one secret which will transform them into poker pros in twenty four hours or less.

Let’s face it, if skill came in a can, and Lady Luck in a bottle, we’d all be poker pros. Sadly, improving your poker game just isn’t as easy as opening a can or a bottle, but don’t lose hope, there is something you can do.

The main problem which plagues poker players is the lack of focus. Focus is the key which can turn mediocre poker players into successful poker players. When a player loses focus, they will most certainly lose the game to someone who has maintained theirs.

The main causes of loss of focus at the poker table are:

Focusing on talk rather than the poker game: Talking during play is without a doubt the toughest habit to kick, and is the biggest consumer of our poker time attention. Poker time chat is something that’s expected, especially among friends, so it’s tough to quit without appearing rude. Tone it down over time, and you’ll see your poker winning streak improve.

Focusing on food rather than the poker game: Food is essential to all human beings, that’s a fact we’re all familiar with. However, food shouldn’t be your focus while playing poker. Instead of munching during the actual game, grab something to eat before play begins, and during breaks in play. Focus off of food leaves more focus for poker slot online.

Focusing on alcohol rather than on the poker game: Now here’s where I’ll lose some of you for sure. If you really want to improve your poker game, leave the drinking of alcoholic beverages for post game chatter. A clear mind places smarter bets, and also puts you at an advantage over your inebriated poker pals.

Focusing on a personal issue rather than on the poker game: We all have issues at one time or another in life. Bringing them to the poker table isn’t helping anyone but your opponents. If you have something pressing on your mind and can’t set it aside, then leave poker for another time. This may sound a little harsh, but it’s the truth.

Focusing on a local distraction: This could be anything from your friend’s bad toupee, the barking of a distant dog or the tv upstairs. Filter out the ambient non poker essentials. Forget the toupee, the dog and the tv. It’s poker time pal, let’s get down to it!
