Full PokerStars EPT Prague Schedule; Festival Just Three Weeks Away!

The European Poker Tour (EPT) finally returns to Prague next month, after nearly three years since its last visit to the Czech Republic capital. Running from March 5-16, poker players from all over the world will flock to the King’s Casino Prague, Hilton Prague Hotel to take part in the first instalment of the EPT 2022 season.

Originally set to run December 8-19 at King’s Casino at the Hilton Prague. PokerStars were forced to make the tough decision to postpone the event following the Czech Republic entering a State of Emergency on November 25 because of the pandemic. The new dates for the event were announced last December, with the live poker festival featuring tournaments with buy ins ranging from €330 all the way up to €50,000.

Thankfully, EPT Prague has had the green light and will run as currently scheduled as the first major PokerStars live event of 2022. However, there are some measures from the Czech Republic government that players must take to ensure they’re able to take their seat at the table.

The current situation is as follows:

  • Players DO NOT need a covid-certificate like proof of vaccination or a test to attend the EPT Prague event. However, please keep an eye on the most up to date travel to the Czech Republic conditions.
  • All persons entering the Hilton Prague casino must undergo a temperature scan.
  • A respirator face mask (e.g. KN95) wearing is compulsory when in the casino and when playing at the tables.

For players who have specific questions, they are advised to contact either [email protected] or [email protected].

Qualify for EPT Prague Online

Parker Talbot
PokerStars Ambassador Parker \”tonkaaaa\” Talbot

PokerStars is making sure as many people qualify for EPT Prague as possible. They’re doing this by running a plethora of online poker satellite tournaments to the European Poker Tour Main Event and EPT National.

Over 90 players have already secured their place in the Main Event for a fraction of the price. Some of the notable names on that shortlist include PokerStars ambassador Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot, Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford and the newly crowned World No. 1 Online MTT Player Patrick “pads1161” Leonard.

Direct satellites to the €5,300 Main Event take place every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday on PokerStars and all begin at 8:10 p.m. GMT (3:10 p.m. ET; 9:10 p.m. CET). Entry costs €530 and each EPT package won is worth €7,200.

Players with modest bankrolls can work their way up to get their hands on their EPT Main Event ticket by qualifying through a series of sub-satellite tournaments. There are freerolls from which you can pilot your way to the €22 qualifier. Those who get over this hurdle then find themselves in the €530 qualifier which is where you are playing for your EPT package.

The EPT National Main Event is another event online poker players can satellite into from the comfort of their own homes. This tournament comes with a buy-in of €1,100 and is often the most attended event.

Direct satellites for this event have a €162 buy-in with the prize being a €2,500 EPT Package. These tournaments also take place every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and have a slightly earlier start time of 7:35 p.m. GMT (2:35 p.m. ET; 8:35 p.m. CET). Like the Main Event, players can get to this qualifier by navigating through a series of sub-satellite events.

There will undoubtedly be live poker satellites for several events at the Hilton Prague during the European Poker Tour Prague festival.

Mystery Bounty Tournament Makes EPT Debut

Mystery Bounty

To help make EPT Prague an occasion to remember, PokerStars has scheduled a Mystery Bounty tournament to take place at the Hilton Prague during the festival.

Mystery Bounty tournaments have taken the MTT world by storm since its inception at the Wynn Summer Classic, but the Czech Republic will see the first event of its kind on the European Poker Tour.

The EPT Prague Mystery Bounty tournament has a €2,700 buy-in, with €1,925 going into the regular prize pool and €500 being allocated for the Mystery Bounty pool. The Mystery Bounty gimmick comes into play on Day 2, where each remaining player is given a bounty token.

If a player knocks an opponent out, they win their bounty token. The player will then hand in their newly won token to the cash desk where they will then randomly select an envelope containing a cash prize. The minimum a player can win is €500 but it could be much more than that. There is also the potential that one envelope will contain a €50,000 prize!

In October 2021, Donald Nimneh, a truck driver based in Omaha, Nebraska won €250,000 from the $2,200 Mystery Bounty at the 2021 Wynn Fall Classic.

A QuickPick is the easiest way to play Powerball, where your numbers are generated randomly for you and the number of games is set.

But choosing your own numbers gives you more control over how you play, as you can select the exact amount of games you want to play and what numbers.

System entry

A System entry increases your odds of winning Powerball and can also give you the chance to win across multiple divisions.

With a Standard entry, you need to select 7 numbers from the first barrel as well as the Powerball number. With a System entry, you’re able to choose 8 to 20 numbers, rather than just 7, giving you more chances to win.

There are also PowerHit System entries, which guarantee you the Powerball and also allow you to choose from 8 to 15 numbers from the first barrel.

PowerHit entry

A PowerHit entry guarantees you the winning Powerball number. However, you will still need to select your own numbers for the first barrel or have them randomly generated for you with a QuickPick.

Pick entry

There are 3 types of Pick entries: Pick entry, PowerHit Pick 5 entry and PowerHit Pick 6 entry.

A Pick entry guarantees you 1 or 2 winning numbers. Whereas a PowerHit Pick 5 or a PowerHit Pick 6 guarantees you 1 or 2 winning numbers from the main barrel as well as the Powerball.

AutoPlay entry

You can also choose to play for multiple draws or set up a recurring entry, or both.

Play for multiple draws for up to 10 weeks using the same ticket. Or AutoPlay your entry to ensure you never miss out on a draw! An AutoPlay entry can be based on your preferences, whether you want to enter every draw or only when a certain jackpot amount is reached.

How to play PowerHit in Powerball and increase your odds

So, what is a PowerHit in Powerball? A PowerHit ticket increases your chances of winning Powerball by guaranteeing you have the winning Powerball number. You’ll still need to choose the first 7 numbers for the main barrel, however. You can do this by selecting the numbers yourself or choosing a QuickPick that randomly generates numbers for you.

You will receive 20 games with a PowerHit, with 20 different Powerball numbers. The Powerball can only be a number between 1 and 20, so you’re guaranteed to get the winning number in 1 of those games! This is why PowerHit odds are higher than some other Powerball games.

The minimum cost of a PowerHit entry is $27.

You can play a Powerball Syndicate with a PowerHit entry, simply called a PowerHit Syndicate. Playing a Powerball Syndicate is also one way of increasing your chances of winning.

We have created an animated video to help explain what exactly a PowerHit is to help give you a better understanding of how it works.

Powerball prizes and jackpots

There are 9 different Powerball divisions. The Division 1 prize pool every week has a minimum of $3 million prize money. The highest Powerball jackpot reached $150 million in September 2019.

The Division 1 prize pool rolls over each week if the jackpot isn’t won. It resets only once it’s been won. The only way to win Division 1 is to match all 7 numbers from the main barrel as well as the Powerball number.

Weeks Without Jackpot Jackpot Prize
1 $3,000,000
2 $8,000,000
3 $20,000,000
4 $40,000,000
5 $60,000,000
6 $80,000,000
7 $100,000,000
8 $150,000,000

Each week, the division prize pool amounts will change. This is because the prizes depend on the number of entries into each draw.

While it’s not often that the Division 1 prize is won by more than a single ticket, the other divisions frequently have multiple winners. For example, Division 9 can sometimes have tens of thousands of winners across Australia. So while your chances of winning the Division 9 are much higher than those of winning Division 1, you’ll need to expect to share the jackpot with other lucky winners!

What Are the Chances of Alec Baldwin Going to Prison

Hollywood is not just glitz and glamour, charming film stars, and handsome actors walking on the red carpet. Unfortunately, in the history of films and TV shows shooting, multiple accidents have occurred, some of them being fatal. In October 2021, our hearts were broken by the tragic and absolutely unprovoked death of Halyna Hutchins, a director of photography of Alec Baldwin’s last film, Rust. Hutchins’ decease is not the first death caused by a firearm in a movie or TV show. However, it puts a spotlight on how firearms can be used safely in the entertainment industry and, moreover, whether they should be banned.

In brief, according to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Department, a prop firearm was discharged by Baldwin during a rehearsal on the New Mexico movie set, killing the chief cinematographer and wounding the director. The film star claimed he was told the gun was safe and had no idea how it ended up loaded with real ammunition.

A series of fatal injuries have been occurring in the industry for years. Probably the most widely known tragic incident was the death of the unforgettable Brandon Lee, the son of the martial arts legend Bruce Lee. In 1993, Brandon was fatally wounded by a prop gun on “The Crow” film set.

The devastating death of Brandon Lee happened while he was filming a scene where his character, Eric Driven, is shot by some gang members. The prop crew had decided to remove the usually used gunpowder and make their own dummy cartridges. Sadly, they did not properly check the prop revolver and did not know that the primer was still inside the cartridge. Just like Halyna Hutchins, after the wrongful shot, Brandon Lee was airlifted to hospital but doctors were unable to save his life.

A thorough investigation was conducted back then but no culprit was identified and the actor’s death was determined to be an accident due to negligence. The tragic decease of Hutchins during the shooting of Rush has led to questions over whether Baldwin stands to face any criminal charges.

What Do Legal Experts Say?

What Do Legal Experts Say The more time passes, the less likely it is that Alec Baldwin will be charged with a felony. However, the investigation is not yet completed and a number of experts are giving their opinion on the possible outcome of the case.

Criminal Offence

Under certain circumstances, the tragic accident can be classified as involuntary manslaughter. According to New Mexico Statutes, this type of crime falls within the fourth-degree felony category which provides for 18-month imprisonment and a fine of up to $5,000. Furthermore, according to §31-21-10, a person who has served his sentence of imprisonment shall be required to go through a one-year parole period.

If prosecutors eventually decide to bring involuntary manslaughter charges against Alec Baldwin, they will have to prove that the actor has acted irresponsibly and discharged the prop gun although he had been warned not to. Proving his guilt, in this case, would be extremely complicated given how many people handled the fatal weapon before it reached Baldwin’s hands.

Civil Liability

Newsweek introduces another aspect of the possible consequences, that of civil liability. According to Nancy Gartner, a former United States District Judge and a current senior lecturer at Harvard Law School, there is a chance Alec Baldwin will face some lawsuits. In order for the terms of a civil lawsuit to be fulfilled, the relevant damage must be ensuing out of the defendant’s violation of a law, breach of contract, or another wrongful action. So now it is up to the investigators to thoroughly inspect all contracts concluded in relation to the filming of the Rush movie. Thus it will be determined who was obliged to do what and whether there had been any negligence that had unfortunately led to Halyna Hutchins’ death.

A civil lawsuit probably would not be a threat to the film star if he was just an actor. However, apart from playing the lead role, Alec Baldwin is a producer of Rush and this inevitably leads to more responsibilities and therefore more common points with the circumstances that led to the tragic accident. The New York Post published a text message from a member of the crew stating that several union camera people had resigned due to poor gun safety measures. According to the words of this anonymous lady, the replacement staff was not experienced with handling prop guns but despite that, the new people started working immediately.

The Position Producer and Its Real Meaning

The Position Producer and Its Real Meaning Having said that, you may think there is not much for the prosecutors to wonder about – Baldwin is a producer, he is responsible for everything that happens on the film set, so he is going to prison. Well, it is not that simple. The Rush film is an independent production and as such, it has multiple financiers and several people having the title producer or executive producer. Unless everybody’s contract is read in detail, there is no way to be sure who was in charge of staff recruitment or prop gun observance.

This is not the first time Alec Baldwin is credited as a producer. He was named an executive producer on “State and Main” and a producer on “30 Rock. The actor also starred in the 2016 film “Blind” where he received an executive producer credit as part of his deal as an actor without performing another producorial role.

Just a few days before the death of Halyna Hutchin, Alec Baldwin posted a video expressing his support to the IATSE members who were in negotiations for a new contract to protect their interests – working hours, salaries, safety measures. “Do what you need to do… You wanna go on strike? Go on strike! You got to fight!” he says. Furthermore, Baldwin talks about film producers quite critically and in an obscene way, so we don’t think he sees himself in this position.

Legal Actions Against Alec Baldwin

Legal Actions Against Alec Baldwin One of the laws applicable on the territory of New Mexico provides another opportunity to seek responsibility for the death of the 42-year old cinematographer. According to N.M. Stat. § 41-2-1 (2021), a “wrongful death” is a death that is “caused by the wrongful act, neglect, or default of another” and if the victim had lived, would be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.

It is in this relation that the lawyer Kristina Martinez showed up, requesting to be appointed as a personal representative of the estate of Halyna Hutchins. In itself, her document does not represent an official civil action against Alec Baldwin but rather an appointment aiming at performing a supplementary investigation and potentially filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

If Halyna Hutchins’ family finally decides to move on with that legal action, this will not be the first lawsuit filed in connection with the case. In November 2021, Mamie Mitchell, the film’s screenplay supervisor, sued Baldwin and the other producers for loss of future earnings, ear injury, and court expenses among other damages resulting from the fatal shooting. According to Alec Baldwin’s lawyers, the accident should be dismissed as a working accident and any potential compensations must be sought after from the state’s workers compensation system. What is more, Mamie Mitchell has not yet proved any intentional behaviour on behalf of Baldwin and the other producers of Rush.

Before Mamie Mitchell, it was Serge Svetnoy who filed a lawsuit for negligence that has led to the tragic incident and caused “severe emotional distress” to the plaintiff. This legal action names several defendants including Baldwin as a star and a producer, David Halls as the assistant director who handed the loaded gun, and the weapons responsible Hannah Gutierrez-Reed. Serge Svetnoy claims to be not only Hutchins’ co-worker but also a close friend. He stated that no safety standards were implemented and thus the producers have allowed for a gun loaded with live ammunition to be pointed at people. Svetnoy used his personal Facebook profile to clarify his position: “I addressed my post to the producers of the whole world, asking them not to save money on the crew and hire the professionals.”

The last crew member to file a negligence lawsuit is Cherlyn Schaefer, the onsite medic who was the first to rush and try to help Halyna Hutchins. She stayed with the cinematographer until the helicopter arrived, supplying her with oxygen and applying direct pressure on the wound. From the case papers, it becomes clear that the doctor claims she has suffered “tremendous shock, trauma and severe emotional distress”. The legal action filed by Schaefer does not particularly name Baldwin but rather the film production company as well as Hannah Reed Gutierrez (armourer), Dave Halls (first assistant director), Seth Kenney (ammunition supplier), and Sarah Zachry (prop master).

Legislative Amendments Following The Tragedy

Legislative Amendments Following The Tragedy Whether or not any of the mentioned legal actions will lead to an effective sentence for Alec Baldwin remains to be seen. It is of high importance, however, the death of Halyna Hutchins not to remain just another event in statistics but to trigger legislative amendments that will contribute to film sets becoming a safe workspace for thousands of stagehands.

By the end of January 2022, the US senator Cliff Pirtle of Roswell presented a bill that would require all film set employees who handle guns to pass through a safety course provided by the New Mexico Game and Fish Department. In a statement, the senator expressed his opinion that talks about firearms use in Hollywood have been too broad and abstract so far and it is time to execute some real actions. According to the proposal, film companies that do not conform with the new provisions would risk being not eligible for state tax rebates. In the case of New Mexico, the film tax rebate can be between 25% and 35% which is a significant amount that can sometimes be indicative of whether a film will be snapped at all.

The Democrat-led Legislature has still not confirmed if it will bring the bill up for debate and a potential vote.

Even without new legislative provisions coming into force, some film companies and producers have already announced they are going to change the way shooting scenes are filmed. In an interview for Variety, Dwayne Johnson The Rock declared that Seven Bucks Productions will not use real guns anymore on the sets of any of its films. “We’re not going to worry about the dollars; we won’t worry about what it costs.” Another famous name, Eric Kripke, an American writer and television producer also made a similar announcement, stating that he will only use VFX muzzle flashes on his sets. His Tweet on the topic has more than 17,000 likes and is followed by hundreds of comments.

Bandar Albuliwi started a petition on change.org calling for a ban on the use of real guns in the film industry that has already been signed by more than 116,000 people. “We need to make sure that this avoidable tragedy never happens again. There is no excuse for something like this to happen in the 21st century. Real guns are no longer needed on film production sets” says Albuliwi in the petition’s description. Another initiative regarding a possible gun ban was the open letter signed by more than 200 cinematographers and other Hollywood professionals just a couple of weeks after the accidental death of Hutchins.

Let’s hope аll these statements will not be a lone voice in the wilderness and this time there will be a real change for the better. This is even more important than whether Alec Baldwin will go to prison or not.

Bookies Accept Bets for Next Conservative Party Leader

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom since 2019 has sparked vehement disapproval on the island after reported cases of social gatherings held at Downing Street during Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. Whether a forthcoming Conservative Party leadership election will take place in the United Kingdom as a consequence of the series of scandalous parties is a question the public is highly concerned about.

Considering Johnson’s vulnerable position at the moment and the fact that there is no shortage of potential successors, online bookmakers are already offering bets on who will the next Tory leader be. Along with betting markets on the probable future leaders, interactive bookmakers are offering odds as for the timing of the elections and a possible no-confidence vote. Some bookmakers are also posting prices on whether the current Prime Minister will be the leader at the next General Election.

Read on to find out more details about the intense situation and what the odds are in favour of several politicians who may become the next Conservative Party leader.

A Closer Look at the Partygate Scandal

Partygate Scandal As per an official report released by British senior civil servant, Sue Gray, a series of social gatherings were held at No. 10 despite the stringent restrictions imposed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. We are looking further into the report, Johnson’s official statement in the House of Commons, as well as the public opinion on the hot topic.

Sue Gray’s Report

Sue Gray The investigation into the parties held on government premises has been published on 31 January 2022 and apart from Sue Gray, several other senior servants in the Cabinet Office have also participated in its compilation. The report focuses on several gatherings from May 2020 through to April 2021, all during periods of severe anti-pandemic restrictions. The investigation is backed by interviews, documentary and digital information, as well as e-mails.

According to information from the report, its goal is not to make judgments of any kind, as this is within the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Police. Consequently, the police authority has confirmed launching an investigation on some of the events included in the report.

Considering the pandemic’s impact on the nation’s health, social life, and liberties, Sue Gray does not fail to note: “Everyone has made personal sacrifices, some the most profound, having been unable to see loved ones in their last moments or care for vulnerable family and friends.” Public anger was triggered as a result of what seems to be utter public irresponsibility in the conditions of unprecedented lockdown restrictions.

As per the opinions expressed in the report, representatives of the Government failed to meet the high expectations that were valid for the whole British population. Other than the lack of appropriateness of the said gatherings, the report also touches on the need for a vigorous policy on the consumption of alcohol in the working environment.

In conclusion, it is suggested that the events in question are to be duly addressed by the Government, irrespective of the police investigations.

Prime Minister’s Statement Following Gray’s Report

Prime Minister’s Statement The Prime Minister has initially claimed that the events did not break the rules and that he believed they were of a formal, work character.

Following the report by the senior civil servant, the Prime Minister has made a statement in the House of Commons on 31 January 2022. Johnson begins by simply thanking the people who have compiled the report and goes on to pass on his apologies. Further on, he expresses his appreciation of all the sacrifices people were asked to make during the Covid-19 restrictions as well as his understanding of the anger many are experiencing.

Boris Johnson continues his statement assuring that he is aware of the changes that need to be implemented and adds a list of the accomplishments, such as delivering Brexit, the handling of the health crisis, and the subsequent vaccination programme.

The politician concludes his speech by confirming that the Conservative Party is “going to bring the same energy and commitment to getting on with the job to delivering for the British people.”

The Public Opinion

British Public Opinion What would Boris Johnson’s political fate be and that of the Conservative Party is a matter sparking off intense public interest. Brits’ support for their Prime Minister seems to be dwindling every single day, as various surveys point out.

A YouGov research dated from December 08, 2021, inquires 5,523 UK citizens whether they believe the series of parties violated the strict Covid-19 measures. According to 54% of the respondents, those gatherings were definitely in violation of the restrictions, while 25% showed some uncertainty stating that the parties were “probably” breaking the rules. Only 5% are of the opposite opinion and another 1% state that no rules were disobeyed. Some 14% of the surveyed citizens are unsure of their stance.

As per another YouGov’s research conducted on January 25, 2022, among 3,559 adults, 62% of them believe that Boris Johnson should resign from his role as a Prime Minister, while 25% confirm that he should remain in his position. Some 13% of Brits do not express an opinion on the matter.

According to yet another opinion poll conducted by YouGov on the same day with 3,559 respondents, 74% of the UK citizens think that the Metropolitan Police have rightfully launched an investigation into the social gatherings held on Downing Street, while 15% assume that was wrong. The rest, i.e 12% are undecided.

Letters of No-Conidence

Letters of No-Conidence Given the Partygate scandal, Boris Johnson seems to be struggling to reassure MPs about his authority.

As per information, valid as of the first week of February 2022, a total of 15 Tories have publicly expressed an opinion that Boris Johnson should resign, and 9 of them have confirmed that they have already sent a no-confidence letter to the chairman of the 1922 Committee.

The latter is formally known as the Conservative Private Members’ Committee, which consists of all Conservative backbench members of Parliament. Should the Committee receive at least 54 letters, the threshold to prompt a confidence vote will be met.

In case the Prime Minister wins the no-confidence vote, another one could not be possibly held for one year.

Social Media Posts Regarding Partygate

Boris Johnson After weeks of reports on multiple parties and ensuing silence on the subject, the Prime Minister made a public statement in the House of Commons apologizing for the whole affair. The opposition leader’s speech, along with the subsequent jeering and laughter mirrored the public opinion across the whole nation, considering people were not allowed to meet more than a single person outside their household at the peak of the health crisis.

Despite Johnson’s remorse and apologies, and his logical desire to fight for his reputation, the situation seems to become even grimmer. The public outrage over the Prime Minister’s handling of the scandal during a health crisis is escalating as he faces daily calls to resign.

Does Mr Johnson have the moral authority to lead the nation and tell people to follow the rules while he does not seem to be doing so?

Who Has the Potential to be the Next Conservative Party Leader?

Conservative Party Former cabinet minister David Davis has shared the public opinion that Boris Jonson should relinquish his Prime Ministerial position, arguing that he expects his leaders “to show the responsibility for the actions they take”.

According to many, replacing Boris Johnson is not going to be an easy feat, as it takes someone who would be capable of revitalising a party that has been in government since 2010. As the Prime Minister faces the escalating jeopardy of forfeiting his leadership over the series of rule-breaking parties, online sportsbooks are offering an ever-growing variety of betting markets related to the hot topic.

*The odds indicated on the table are valid as of the date of writing the report.

We are going to shed some light on the top five frontrunners having the potential to become the next Conservative Party Leader. Interactive sportsbooks are also offering bets on several other less probable alternatives such as Dominic Raab, Michael Gove, and Ben Wallace.

Rishi Sunak

Rishi Sunak Born in Southampton to Indian British parents and graduated from Stanford’s School of Business, Rishi Sunak is a former banker and investment analyst. He has been Chancellor of the Exchequer since February 2020 and is believed to be among the richest MPs.

Other than that he is also one of the youngest politicians in contemporary politics. Sunak is recognized as the favourite to replace Johnson if the latter is ousted over the Partygate scandal.

Prior to being the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak was Chief Secretary to the Treasury from July 2019 to February 2020. He is considered by many as the most popular Conservative politician due to his polished personality and impeccable family. Due to the pandemic’s inevitable impact on finances, his measures have been openly criticised, as some workers were not eligible for the financial support of the Treasury.

Liz Truss

Liz TrussElizabeth Mary Truss has been a Conservative Party member since 1996. She is the current Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, a position she assumed in September 2021. She has occupied several other positions under Prime Ministers David Cameron and Theresa May.

Although she was ultimately a supporter of Brexit, she is originally known to be affiliated with Britain Stronger in Europe, a group in favour of Britain’s membership of the European Union. She is also the first female Lord Chancellor in the contemporary history of the office.

Truss is believed to be Sunak’s main rival, as indicated also by the bookmaker’s odds. She has been appointed with the task of overseeing Brexit negotiations, which as some are arguing may undermine her leadership ambitions.

Jeremy Hunt

Born in 1966, and raised in Surrey, Jeremy Hunt studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University. From July 2018 through to July 2019, he held the position of Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.

Since January 2020 he has assumed the post of Chair of the Health and Social Care Select Committee. The latter is charged with the task of overseeing the work of the Department of Health and Social Care, including the government policy, and the related expenses and administrative operations.

After serving during David Cameron’s and Theresa May’s term of office, Jeremy Hunt became the longest-standing Health Secretary in the history of British politics in 2018.

Jeremy Hunt finished a runner-up to Boris Johnson in the 2019 Conservative Party leadership election.

Tom Tugendhat

Tom TugendhatTom Tugendhat has been the MP for Tonbridge and Malling since 2015. Before embarking on a political career, he worked as a journalist and a public relations consultant in the Middle East, and occupied a part-time position as an officer in the UK’s Army reserves.

When inquired if he would take part in a potential Conservative party leadership contest, he confirmed that it would be a “huge privilege” to serve as prime minister of the United Kingdom.
Although Tom Tugendhat is considered an outsider to take over Boris Johnson’s position, his name is increasingly cited as a viable variant.

The Tory centrist goes on to express an opinion that he is not in the least embarrassed by his ambition to throw hat into the leadership ring, as serving his country has always made him proud.

Penny Mordaunt

Penny Mordaunt Yet another Tory politician with an eye on No. 10 is Penny Mordaunt, serving as Member of Parliament for Portsmouth North since 2010 and as the current Minister of State for Trade Policy. She has held also numerous other senior roles. Mordaunt is also known to be an avid Brexiteer and has written the book Greater: Britain After the Storm, published in 2020.

She is also the first woman to become Secretary of State for Defence in 2019. She held this position for three months, before being dismissed by Boris Johnson when he occupied the Prime Minister’s position. Several Conservative Party MPs have already expressed their support for Mordaunt.

Conclusion

It remains to be seen what the chances of Boris Johnson confronting an impending confidence vote are over the series of rule-breaking parties at No. 10. So far the Prime Minister is holding onto his role but provided the required threshold of no-confidence letters is met, a leadership vote is about to be triggered. Whether and when the required 54 letters will be sent to the 1922 Committee is a matter that will shape the imminent British political history.

What The Odds Suggest – And What They Never

A dilemma that just came our way is a reminder that at times, you cannot contact on a subject plenty of. I’m speaking about the odds of winning in our online games – what they suggest and what they really do not.

A player attained out to us soon after purchasing two tickets in the Fortunate Numbers Game Reserve and not profitable a prize. The participant noticed that the game’s total odds of winning are 1 in 2.51 and evidently thought that intended a single of their tickets was assured to win. But that’s not right.

Think of it like a deck of cards: With 4 satisfies in a deck (spades, golf equipment, diamonds, hearts), there is about a 1 in 4 chance that the up coming card up will be in a certain suit. But after you shuffle the deck, you can go through a large amount of cards in a row ahead of you come across a card in a distinct go well with.

It’s the same point in our scratch video games: Winning tickets are randomly dispersed throughout the game so no a single – not even all those of us who work at the lottery – is aware of when or where by the subsequent major winner will hit.

We’re not joking, we’re not lying, and our odds aren’t mistaken.

We made the movie down below to reveal the odds. I hope its visuals enable convey to the tale.
