Hamburg Gaming evacuated after storm severs gas line –

HAMBURG. N.Y. (WIVB) – Severe weather in Hamburg Thursday caused an evacuation of patron and employees at Hamburg Gaming. The storm severed a gas line on the roof, prompting Hamburg Gaming to shut down the main power and evacuate.

About 150 people took shelter in the Grange Building on the fairgrounds.

Steve Martin, senior director of marketing for Hamburg Gaming, said that no serious injuries were reported. Hamburg Gaming is assisting with transportation home for some patrons and employees because an estimated 80 percent of the vehicles in the parking lot had window damage caused by changes in air pressure.

Hamburg Gaming will remain closed Thursday. The goal is to reopen at 8 a.m. Friday, Martin said.

“We will continue to monitor the situation with the Town of Hamburg officials and police, as well as the Erie County Agricultural Society,” Martin said.

The Buffalo Raceway, located at Hamburg Gaming, has already announced that there will be no more racing or simulcast wagering for the remainder of the 2017 season due to damage from the storm.

Manz Mind: The Ultimate Poker Mindset App – PokerTube

20 Jul

Pete Manzinelli and Fedor Holz are two very different poker players. One of them is a genius author of the most epic run in poker history, with millions of dollars in tournament winnings and a number of prospective entrepreneurial ventures – and the other one is Fedor Holz.

There’s, however, one thing that both Manz and Holz have in common, they are both creators and faces of two different poker mindset apps. “Manz Mind” and “Primed Mind” have the potential to take your game to the next level so let’s compare and contrast the two to see which product is superior.

Manz Mind vs Primed Mind

Ancient Greek philosophers were the first to figure out the truth that’s so relevant in modern times – authority trumps facts every time. Because of that, we should start our comparison of “Manz Mind” and “Primed Mind” by taking a closer look at Manzinelli and Holz.

Both of them are considered great poker players but only one of them is a true poker legend with more than a decade of experience, who after all these years is still going strong from one tournament win to another, and that’s of course Manz.

Holz is a relative newcomer to the scene and he already decided to retire from poker after a string of mediocre results, which doesn’t really inspire confidence. I don’t know about you, but if I were interested in becoming the best plumber on the planet I wouldn’t take my advice from a 23-year-old kid who tapped out of the business after fixing a few leaks, I’d instead turn my attention to the guy that was holding a plunger firmly in his hand for the better part of the last two decades.

Next on the list of important things to compare is

SK Gaming, EternaLEnVy, Mvp and the varying demands of greatness – Slingshot Esports

When a competitor enters their chosen field, they will eventually ask themselves, “How far do I want to go?” The instantaneous answer is always to be the best, to be the greatest. The follow-up question, rarely asked, is “What does it take to become the best?”

Most players hit an insurmountable wall early in their careers, a barrier of entry they cannot break with their current amount of effort. They make excuses as to why they can’t continue progress: lack of time, paltry salaries, crappy infrastructure, disapproving culture, the limitations of the game, boneheaded teammates, a high level of competition, innate talent. They are all valid reasons in their own way. Many great players never reached their true peak due to circumstances beyond their control. But those are not the greatest players, and teams do not succeed because they dodge obstacles, but rather in spite of them. To overcome adversity, greatness cultivates a set of attributes in those who strive for it. It requires resolution, composure, grit, reflection, sacrifice, boldness and innovation.

In order to be great, you need to be bold. The very desire to excel is audacious and will appear pompous to those who don’t share the same urge. The boldest thing I ever saw was Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao’s declaration to the internet that he was going pro. He had no experience and no one knew his name, but he didn’t care. EE was a man with a mission and a man with a plan. Although admittedly his aspirations wouldn’t put him out on the street (he could return to university), he invested his focus as if Dota 2 was a matter of life and death. Today he is celebrated as one of the best players the game has to offer. Greatness demanded boldness, and EternaLEnVy

High fidelity mobile gaming to become the next GPU battle ground – Android Authority (blog)

Gaming is huge, over $100 billion per year huge, according to a recent report published by Newzoo. And mobile gaming is a significant chunk of that. In 2017 it is estimated that mobile games will generate $46.1 billion. As you can imagine, every game developer wants a slice of that pie.

Games come in all shapes and sizes. For example, Google Play has 17 different subcategories for mobile gaming from Action to Trivia. From a hardware point of view, games fall into two distinct categories: those that take advantage of a device’s GPU and those that don’t ask much of the GPU. The latter includes the majority of simple 2D games, whereas the former is dominated by 3D games.

However there is a new category of gaming which is emerging on both Android and iOS. Games that push the GPU to the max. Graphically intensive games (also known as high fidelity games) are pushing mobile gaming towards experiences previously only seen on consoles.

High fidelity

High fidelity games aren’t just first person shooters, here you will also find racing games, Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas (MOBAs) and all types of Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) games.

To classify as high fidelity, a game needs to exhibit the following types of features:

Advanced 3D graphics with high vertex counts Complex vertex and fragment shaders Sophisticated gameplay possibly including AI controlled characters Sustained high levels of GPU demand

In the West, these high fidelity games account for between 5% and 10% of the top grossing games, while in China it is more than 40%.

In North America 45 of the top 200 Android games are high fidelity games including titles like Madden NFL, CSR Racing 2 and World of Tanks Blitz. In Europe, that number is higher where 60 of the top 200
