Poker Runs
Sep 12th, 2018 by admin

A poker run is basically a treasure hunt where players visit several destinations across a town or city and collect a poker card from each one. The aim of the game isn’t to complete the run in the quickest time but to have the best poker hand once you have completed it.

You can participate in them as a family or as a group of friends, ultimately, they are a fun way to get you all out together exploring your local area with the added bonus of the possibility of taking home a trophy or maybe even some prize money.

Why should I take part in a Poker Run?

Poker runs are often set up in order to raise money for charity. A small registration fee is often charged to any teams that wish to compete, with all monies from this fee going to the charity nominated by the organisers. This means that players can enjoy the fun of the day whilst also knowing that are helping out a good cause. Runs generally have 5 check-points and the route can take you anywhere across a city or town, from back roads with glorious views to hidden treasures within the city centre that you have never seen. Completing a poker run will certainly help you see your local area in a new light.

Poker Run Tips

One of the best strategies to help you perform well in a poker run is to make sure you have a bit of understanding about the game of poker and that you know a bit about what makes a good hand. You can always head to I Know Poker if you need some help familiarizing yourself with the game. By doing this, you can assess how you are performing as you go through the game and have some understanding in regards to which cards you might be looking to draw to make the best hand.

Alternatives to the Ford Mustang
Jan 6th, 2015 by admin

The Ford Mustang is iconic when it comes to American muscle cars, but it is certainly not without equal. Historically there have been many cars in the same class and many of those same cars have made the transition into modern times. Most of these are priced close enough to leave money out as a factor. If you’re looking for a modern muscle car, you’re buying based on features.

The Chevrolet Camaro is a valid alternative to the Ford Mustang. Both are available in v6 and v8 engine sizes of comparable horsepower and track times. Fuel mileage is, of course, equally terrible in all options but if you’re worried about that then you should be shopping for a Toyota Prius.

Dodge brought the Challenger back in 2008, its third iteration since inception. These two cars are so close in standard features, performance and price point that the ultimate deciding factor might be style choice or brand preference. Notable is the Challenger’s larger frame and curb weight that makes it slightly less nimble on the quarter mile and has less fuel economy with the plus of being able to fit five passengers instead of the Mustang’s four.

There are import options in the same price range as the Mustang. Although not muscle cars per say, the Hyundai Genesis, and the Subaru BZR offer considerable bang for the buck. The smaller liter engines rely heavily on turbo chargers, tuning and low curb weight in order to give comparable performance, however the Mustang beats all when it comes to raw power. Still, they are options if one doesn’t mind straying from American automakers.
