Suning Gaming topples RNG in marathon series – ESPN

In stark contrast to the first series of Week 3, Day 2 of the League of Legends Pro League, Suning Gaming took a methodical 2-1 series played at a glacial pace on Friday in Shanghai.

The 2017 League of Legends Hub is your stop for all the information you need about the five major regions. You’ll find stats, standings, results, recaps and more, all in one place.

Kicking off what would be a long and low-action Game 1, Royal Never Give Up (2-2, 5-6 match record) used its pick composition to get ahead early as mid laner Li “Xiaohu” Yuan-Hao’s Taliyah picked up first blood at nine minutes. While RNG had several tools to secure picks, the next kill didn’t come for another 10 minutes, eventually leading to a 3,600-gold lead for RNG through objective pressure. The midgame began a monotonous pattern of baiting Baron, waiting for SNG to face check, then failing the initiation and resetting it all over again until 35 minutes, when RNG took a 4-for-0 fight and pushed through the mid lane to take a low-kill Game 1 with little fanfare or action.

Suning Gaming (2-2, 6-6 match record) was gifted a dream start to Game 2 when mid laner Dong “fenfen” Wei’s blind-pick Kassadin (on the blue side) picked up two kills by 13 minutes before SNG took a 4-for-1 skirmish a few minutes later. With a 5,500-gold lead and a 10-to-2 kill lead at 21 minutes, SNG seemed poised to take over the game, but then came its turn to do the Baron dance. While fenfen splitpushed relatively uncontested, the rest of SNG struggled to make plays happen until 34 minutes, when it took a Baron but lost the ensuing teamfight. Luckily, fenfen survived

EDITORIAL: No excuse for lack of casino cash talks – Niagara Gazette

Where does the city of Niagara Falls stand in terms of its casino negotiations with the Seneca Nation of Indians?

It’s a question many people have been asking locally in the weeks since Seneca leaders announced their position that they are no longer under any obligation to make periodic casino cash payments to the state of New York, and by extension host communities like the Falls.

It’s difficult to tell at this point if there are any ongoing conversations about what to do next, or if the Senecas are even interested in talking.

What is known, or at least what our elected officials should understand, is that without the promise of a regular schedule of payments, the city is looking at a potentially substantial budgetary issue moving forward.

It’s a potentially frightening situation from a fiscal standpoint — both for elected officials in charge of the city and for home and business owners who may be faced with substantial tax increases to cover the city’s obligations if things aren’t resolved in a favorable way, and soon.

For all the talk about the robust partnership between the city and the state as a result of its strong relationship with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration, there appears to be little in the way of communication coming from Albany either.

When the Senecas moved forward with plans to build a new gas station and convenience store on their territory next to Seneca Niagara Casio and Resort, the state did next to nothing, failing to even attempt to assert the notion that such operations were barred under the agreement that granted exclusivity to the nation for Class III gaming operations in Western New York.

Now, as a result of an extension to the original deal, which was brokered by state officials and state attorneys, the

Mass. Gaming Commission approves certificate program at BCC – Fall River Herald News

FALL RIVER — Bristol Community College’s casino management program has blackjack tables, surveillance labs and now an official gaming school certification from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.

The official certification requires BCC to observe some regulations, such as offering courses on dealing games, CPR training and customer service. BCC’s new casino management program came about after the Expanded Gaming Act passed in Massachusetts, opening the door for more casinos in the state.

The casino management program at BCC is part of the college’s larger CATCH Institute, which offers concentrations in culinary arts, tourism management, casino management and hotel management. Institute director John Caressimo said the opportunity for new jobs in Massachusetts spurred the creation of the gaming track for students.

“It’s not as if these jobs were out there on the periphery and only now we’re coming to realize that we should be educating and training these people,” Caressimo said. “These are new jobs coming to the commonwealth, so we need to actually gear up and prepare these people for those jobs.”

Casino management is a four-semester program at BCC where students complete general education courses and topic overviews on the four concentrations, and then choose to focus further on one. Students who choose casino management receive hands-on training at BCC’s Galleria Mall campus in Taunton, where the college operates a “casino lab” outfitted with four blackjack tables, two poker tables, a surveillance lab and more.

“If you walk in the door, you would think you were in a small casino on a cruise ship,” Caressimo said.

The certification comes as the state’s gaming industry is preparing to see a significant increase.

Full-scale resort casinos are under construction in Springfield and Everett, while a third casino in Taunton that would be operated by the Mashpee Wamponoag tribe, is

Las Vegas Poker Pro Showcases Life Playing Lower Stakes Through Popular YouTube Vlog – CardPlayer.com

Las Vegas poker pro Andrew Neeme has been video blogging (vlogging) on YouTube for about eight months now, and in that time he has established himself as one of the best channels to subscribe to if you have an interest in the game of poker.

Neeme has accumulated more than 60,000 subscribers in that time frame, thanks to nearly 70 episodes capturing what it’s like to be a low to mid-stakes player in Sin City. He also takes some trips across the U.S. to play in other poker rooms.

Neeme’s videos contain a mix of big picture ideas about making it as a poker pro, as well as detailed analysis of some of the most important hands he plays in any given session.

Card Player had the chance to speak to the Michigan native about his vlog, as well as some of the things to focus on if you try to defy the odds and play poker professionally.

Brian Pempus: How did your vlog come into being?

Andrew Neeme: I was pretty regularly on the grind and looking to add some creativity to the grind. I was maybe starting to get a little burnt out on six days every week coming in and putting in about eight hours. I also thought that an audience might enjoy seeing the daily grind of the low to medium stakes, $1-$2, $2-$5 and $5-$10. I felt that a lot of the [poker] coverage is focused on the high-stakes games, and some of the more expensive tournaments.

I turned the camera on and off we went.

BP: Did you draw on any non-poker vlogs to get ideas on how to create your content?

AN: Yeah the biggest influence by far was Casey Neistat. He’s been doing the daily vlog thing for a couple of
