Hey kids - come see the pretty green cloud!

This morning in Atlanta, we're dealing with a chemical plant fire out in Conyers. It's a BioLab warehouse where they repackage things such as pool chlorine.

A big, nasty cloud of chemical haze is moving out across the far-east suburbs as I write this. Here's a photo:



This has been going on since very early this morning, and the Atlanta TV stations are living up to their reputation as clueless and useless.

Instead of focusing on information such as what kind of damage chlorine can do to a human and what you should do if you're in the path of the plume, the reporters provided such valuable information as "To give you a feel for the size of the cloud, if this warehouse was at Hartsfield, the cloud would stretch all the way to Sandy Springs. If it were at Six Flags ..." You get the idea.

Just now, a former BioLab worker called in to WSB to tell them that this chlorine cloud is no damn joke. Apparently the only way to get the information about chlorine poisioning out is to have people who know about it to call in.

I, of course, grew up in the middle of Louisiana's chemical alley, and I've seen more than my share of chemical fires, spills, vapor clouds, etc.

This is a potentially very bad situation.

But, as the WSB anchor said a while back "I've never seen anything like this."

Apparently.

Texas Hold'em is the most popular poker game in the world. Almost all the major tournaments are played in this version. You can use the set betting limits or no limit play. The basic rules of the game are relatively simple and can learn quite quickly, but in the achievement of mastery can take a long time. This article presents the most important rules of Texas Hold'em poker.
GAME
In Texas Hold'em usually plays in a standard 52 card deck. The game can participate from two to ten people. Before the start you need to determine which player will be a symbolic "dealer" in the hand. This does not mean that the player actually has to deal cards (online cards are dealt automatically and casinos deal with the dealers). Place this player marked a special ring (called "dealer button" or "button"). It lists which players must pay for their blinds (called "blinds"). These plants are the nucleus of the pot, so that every hand is "anything to win". Always two players must pay the first blind bets (they are put into the pot before the players see their cards). One person pays the "small blind" (called "small blind"), and another on the left - the "big blind" (called the "big blind"), usually two times the small blind. What symbolic hand dealer is changing, so that each of the players from time to time is the dealer, paid a small and big blind - all at the same frequency. Gratis bonos poker

When the blinds are already in the pot, every player gets two cards face down. These are the player's hole cards (called "hole cards"), for inspection only to the owner and he can only use them in the game. Then the middle of the table is gradually taught the five community cards that all players can use to create the best hand. Of the seven cards available to make the best possible five-card hand.
ROUND FOUR AUCTION
Before the flop (PRE-FLOP) - first round of betting. All play that occurs before detection of the first three community cards (the "flop") are referred to as "pre-flop". Players are watching their hole cards and have a chance to play first.
The player sitting to the left of the person who paid the big blind, the first decision. This item is called "under the gun" (literally "under the gun" / "under the gun"). This is because it is the worst in terms of decision-making.
Each player has at this stage to play the following options:
Belt / fitting of / Reset card (called fold): Playing it means giving up the game later in the hand and muck. Match, you lose the right to the money inserted into the pot, even if you have paid the blinds.
Check (called call): Playing it means that the alignment of early plant you want to continue playing the hand. Remember that after the flop will also be able "to wait" (called "check"), if no one before you has not paid the first bet.
Skewer (called raise): Playing it means that you want to place a bet higher than its predecessor. If your round of betting nobody else's set, your play will not puncture, only placing a bet (ang "bet").
