Casino & games Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance People Poker Regions: US PokerStars founder Scheinberg surrenders to US authorities Isai Scheinberg, the founder of online poker giant PokerStars, has travelled to the US to face charges of gambling, bank fraud and money laundering first filed in 2011. According to Forbes, Scheinberg flew to New York from Switzerland, where he is based, earlier in January after the US authorities began extradition proceedings against him. He has been released on $1m bail, and has agreed to remain in the US until the case is heard. He is the last individual to be indicted in the crackdown against igaming sites targeting US customers in April 2011 to face the charges against him. All others have pleaded guilty to either misdemeanours or felonies.The original indictments, which led to the shut-down of US-facing sites such as PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker and Ultimatebet operator Cereus, were unsealed on April 15 2011, a day that became known as Black Friday by the poker community.Read the full story on iGB North America.

The Trust also aims to help children who suffer from life threatening or terminal illnesses or those who have suffered trauma or injury that has had a catastrophic effect on their lives and their families.John Waterhouse, Nikki’s father, charity trustee and co-founder of Hunters, said: “We have seen how lockdown has affected many people, especially children, and we were delighted to receive these applications for support. Education is important for the future generation and we are delighted the Trust has been able to help.”Glynis Frew, managing director of Hunters, comments: “This is a cause extremely close to our heart and one that I’m sure resonates with agents across the country. We look forward to continuing to support children in need through a range of initiatives.”The Nikki Waterhouse Trust welcomes applications for funds from all over the United Kingdom.

Not a term goes by without one of Shakespeare’s plays being staged outdoors with varying degrees of excess. Director Liv Robinson made a wise choice in selecting Shakespeare’s final play to be staged al fresco since The Tempest so heavily relies on what Robinson calls “exposure to nature and to the elements”. Much has been made of the socio-historical and political context of this play, but Robinson deliberately chooses to put greatest emphasis on the psychological shifts undergone by the protagonists. This also explains the occasionally bizarre costumes, designed to reflect each character’s personality rather than traditional Elizabethan dress. This emphasis on character means that the play’s success or failure depends solely on the strength of the actors, and since Prospero is the central figure the burden is largely on his shoulders. It’s an unenviable task, and whilst Basher Savage tackles the part with admirable effort, he falls just short of stirring the audience. Stalking around the stage as if he’s participating in a master class instead of fully immersing himself in the complex psyche of one of Shakespeare’s most enigmatic protagonists, Savage doesn’t quite capture the power of Prospero. However, Ben Var der Velde is successful in his enraged yet sensitive portrayal of the monstrous Caliban, whilst Fiona Pearce delivers a refreshing performance of Ariel, miraculously breathing mischief into whichever scene she floats.Yet it is the farcical drunkards, Stephano and Trinculo (spiritedly played by Kieran Pugh and Iain Drennan) who steal the show and move the audience to laughter, alleviating the slightly monotonous mood of Prospero’s scenes. This is a charming production of one of Shakespeare’s more challenging plays, but it ultimately lacks the spark to make it truly magical.ARCHIVE: 3rd Week TT 2003
The issue of bread weights labelling was in the spotlight again this week, following a European Council ruling that national restrictions on the size of pre-packaged goods should be abolished.The news is the latest development in the long-running European debate over the EU Nominal Quantities Directive (British Baker, January 6, pg 3). The issue will now be sent back to the European Parliament for further debate and could be approved by Euro MPs early next year.Federation of Bakers’ director Gordon Polson said: “It will be several months before a decision will be made. There will be some political horse-trading first. Nothing much has changed; the European Council has always favoured deregulation.”At the moment, packaged bread over 300g in weight has to be sold in set sizes in the UK: 400g, 800g and 1,200g. The European Com-mission voted in December 2005 to exclude bread and other staples from the derivative.
At the same time that the national press is filled with horror stories about additives, the baking industry is having to turn to improvers to help prevent loaves collapsing after the new harvest (pg 4).Wastage this year seems particularly bad. Nature has played such strange tricks with the wet weather that consistency – demanded by most supermarkets and their customers – has gone to pot.Waitrose customers may well be happy to put up with a superb-tasting wonky apple from a British orchard, but I bet you that the very same customer would pass up an oddly-shaped loaf for a perfect one.And this industry cannot afford high wastage on top of all the other costs at the moment – it needs maximum efficiency. That means consistent loaves, delivered at the right time, in the right quantity.Customers cannot be kept waiting, whether that ’customer’ is a supermarket or a high-street shopper queueing in a craft bakery. Any talk about wet weather or low hagberg falling number is of little interest to them when bread is due on the shelf.And, of course, it would happen this week, just as the national newspapers are turning on additives. I know that many of you, as ingredient suppliers or bakers, are either going for or have achieved, clean label.But among the products singled out by one Sunday paper, beneath the large headline; “Why not just ban additives?” were malt loaves, naan bread, caramel shortcake, chocolate chip cookies, Danish pastries and apple turnovers, which the writer accused of being “deliberately packaged to look as if they were fresh from the oven”. I thought that was effective merchandising!The article went on to assert that banning E numbers was easily possible and had already taken place in the USA, Japan, Austria, Norway and Finland, where they have been replaced by natural alternatives.There is also a battle between long-life goods demanded by UK consumers and short-term fresh products – I opt for fresh every time, but I recognise that my neighbours want long life because it suits their lifestyles. That’s choice!
Half of bakers have put their prices up and plan further rises, due to rising costs, according to results from the latest British Baker poll on [http://www.bakeryinfo.co.uk].The feedback suggests that a further 17% of respondants are planning price rises while 13% have put their prices up already and therefore believe a further rise is not required.Only 11% report that they have no need to put prices up, with the remaining 9% saying that they would like to put their prices up, but believe that customers will not accept price rises.The poll will remain live on the bakeryinfo website until November 1, so please log on, click to add your feedback.

The “v.1” suggests there will be more versions of this song to come.The 13+ minute track is an electronic instrumental that will hold your excitement over until the new album drops tomorrow. Listen to “pulse (v.1)” below:
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead wrapped up their three-night run at the Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday night, delivering yet another stand-out evening of Grateful Dead music that was nowhere near short of surprises. With multiple debut covers, endless teases, and sublime jamming, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead once again proved why they’re more than just a “cover band”.Right off the bat, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead opened the first set with a debut cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “The Last Time”, with Scott Metzger on vocals. The jam led straight into an appropriate “Shakedown Street”, which featured teases of Radiohead‘s “Myxomatosis” and was left unfinished. Immediately from there, the Radiohead teases continued on “The Other One”, which also teased “Estimated Prophet”. As the band’s manager Peter Costello notes in the Box Score, this show had “a lot of ins and outs”, as the Grateful Dead-inspired quintet muscled their chops through to the finish line. Watch the first set opener below, courtesy of nugs.tv.[Video: Nugs.tv]The seamless jams continued from “The Other One” to “Mission in the Rain”, which had not been played by JRAD since the band’s 3/17/17 show at the same venue, a 41 show gap. “Crazy Fingers” came next with a stand-out jam between keyboardist Marco Benevento and guitarist Tom Hamilton. The band utilized the notes of a quick “Last Time” instrumental jam to bridge the gap between “Crazy Fingers” and “Truckin’”, before closing the first set with a short instrumental jam of “The Other One”, a trick not utilized by JRAD since their 3/11/17 show at the same venue, a 43 show gap.After their break, the second set opened with a “Scarlet Begonias”-esque jam, which led into a short instrumental version of “Slipknot!”, before locking into the debut performance of “Foolish Heart”, sung by Tom Hamilton. “I Need A Miracle” came next, with unfamiliar teases coming from Hamilton, as well as a jam through WOLF‘s “Fastso’s Last Stand”. Watch the second set opener below.[Video: Nugs.tv]An energetic “Franklin’s Tower” followed, with full-band teases of “Foolish Heart” and “Throwing Stones”. Eventually, the song shifted into a full version of “Throwing Stones”, which thematically teased back “Franklin’s Tower” and “Foolish Heart”. The debut of Led Zeppelin‘s “Good Times Bad Times” came next as a full instrumental, before segueing back into “Throwing Stones”. Another debut followed, with a partial version of The Band‘s “Chest Fever”, as sung by drummer Joe Russo with some help from Tom Hamilton. Naturally, the second set concluded with a “Throwing Stones” reprise.The evening came to a definitive end with a reliable “One More Saturday Night” to close Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s three-night run at the Brooklyn Bowl. Next up, the band heads to Syracuse’s Landmark Theatre and Portland’s State Theatre.
