Horse Racing Tips – Who Can You Trust?

Horse racing tips are something that people at the racetrack are always trying to get their hands on. If someone has a hot tip about a horse in the second race, other race fans will clamor to know everything about it. After all, everyone at a racetrack can use a little help every now and then when it comes to picking a winning horse.

Ideally horse racing tips would be insider tips from the owner or a jockey’s agent. Of course 99.9% of the gamblers at the racetrack do not have that kind of information. There are many phone services and online handicapping services that claim to have such information. But because they cannot “reveal” their sources, the whole idea of it is sort of sketchy at best. We’ve all called these praying for it to be true and all you’d have to do is plop a $200 win bet on a nice $30 lock – but somehow those tips NEVER seem to pan out that way.

The best kinds of horse racing tips that people are using today are not really tips at all. Many avid horse racing gamblers have discovered certain gambling systems that allow them to plug in stats and other variables to produce a prediction relating to the horse that truly has the best chance of winning the race. Although these systems are not a quick way to get rich, it is possible to make a good amount of cash over the long haul.

These wagering systems give you a much better chance of picking horses that should win each race. By using a gambling system, it is possible to take away some of the luck that many people believe is a part of the game.

Remember the best system will include spot betting, hedging your picks and wise money management. There have been many systems floating and re-appearing in the mail and online claiming to be “new” and most are the same old same old.

The best case scenario is a “try before you buy” strategy. Track the sellers picks (free work best) and then determine if their horse racing system is for you. Or you can create one yourself. I’ll show you how in an article I’ll be posting soon.

See you in the winners circle!

WOTLK Gold Farming Guide – Useful Tips To Farm Gold in WoW

A WOTLK gold farming guide is the best way to get the money you need in WoW fast and easy. Players have always tried all sorts of ways to make the gold they need in the game. But only the most experienced players have managed to find good spots and ways to make some cash. Which they either turned into a gold guide, or just bragged about them on forums and such so everyone found out about them.

When the WOTLK expansion came, I was just getting the hang of making some money in The Burning Crusades content. So it was really annoying. I had to level up my character another ten levels. But I did it and then I needed gold. Knowing what I went through the previous expansions, I just started using a WOTLK gold farming guide. I didn’t want to waste any more time with gold farming.

Using the guide, I got really good at PvE and also PvP. The guide was really good and I started seeing some tips from it. Using those tips, I was able to amass quite a wealth. Here are those tips:

– Don’t bother farming gear and trash loot. Concentrate on getting crystallized elements and other crafting resources. These sell really well on any server out there.

– Make sure you have your inventory empty when going to farm. That way you won’t have to got to sell things every 10 minutes.

– Gather and mine everything you see and can. There are always resources around spots that need to be taken. They bring a very good bonus to your over all profit.

– Get a good PvE fit for your character. Don’t try and invent your own little train. The ones you can find all over the web are the ones you need to use.

– Don’t settle on just one spot. Use as many spots as you can to get a large variety of items. That way you cover more ground and make a lot more money than by killing in one single spot.

– Watch the market and see what items are less. Go farm those and put them for sale for a really high price.

You will see that it is easy to make gold in WoW. These tips will help anyone get an idea of what they need to do to start making gold like the pros do. Now I don’t have to worry about not having gold to buy potions or mounts or any other types of items. So it is up to you. If you want to keep struggling to make money in the game, ignore these tips. If not, then use them. They will help you, even if you are not using a WOTLK gold farming guide.

Best Way To Farm Gold In World Of Warcraft – Pristine Black Diamonds!

Have you ever thought what would be the best way to farm gold in World of Warcraft? I’m pretty sure that you have seen players showing off with their expensive stuff like end game crafted gear or mounts like the Mechano-Hog. There are many ways to make gold, but the best method continuously changes, depending on the modifications and expansions brought to the game.

So, what would be the best way to farm gold in WoW these days?

You have probably found or seen Pristine Black Diamonds drop from mobs in level 55-60 areas, but did you know how expensive they are and why? Most people don’t know about these gems increasing value and they simply sell them to vendors or auction them for small prices.

Selling Pristine Black Diamonds is maybe the best way to farm gold in WoW at the moment because 1 diamond sells for up to 500g. So, what do people need them for? Many players want “the Insane” title which can be achieved by grinding exalted reputation with several obscure factions in the game. The faction that requires Pristine Black Diamonds is a group of elves, the Shen’dralar, that live in Dire Maul.

These diamonds are very hard to find, that’s why they are pricey. So, there are 2 ways to obtain them.

1) Keep an eye on the Auction House and buy every diamond auctioned for a low price and sell it for 4-500g. As I said, many people don’t know the real value of these gems.

2) Farm them yourself. There are many places in the game with mobs that have a chance to drop them. But the drop rate is quite low, no matter where you go. Therefore, you just might waste a couple of hours killing who knows what mobs in some forgotten corner of a zone to get 1 diamond. That isn’t very effective. But on the other hand you can get lucky and get quite a few.

Now, if you are working on your “Insane in the Membrane” achievement, it’s best to farm the gold to buy these diamonds and other items that you need for that achievement. There are many methods and spots where you can make tons of gold. But then again, if you want to make some gold, gathering Pristine Black Diamonds might just be the best way to farm gold in WoW at the moment.

Where to Mine Obsidium Ore

Obsidium Ore is a new mineral that is being introduced to mining in the Cataclysm Expansion. Prior to it’s release as a common mineral in this expansion it was previous a key drop after killing mobs in old world zones such as the Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj.

When the Anubisath mobs in Ahn’Qiraj were killed a small or large obsidian chunk could fall to the ground was was minable with 305 mining. The chunk would give obsidian shards, gems, or scarabs. It required a player to have +5 mining enchant and maxed mining at skill level 300 in order to mine it.

Now it is being introduced back into World of Warcraft Cataclysm as a common mineral. When mining Obsidium Deposits a player may find it accompanied by Volatile Fire and Shadow.

Obsidium Deposits will appear in the beginning Cataclysm zones closer to 80 because it is the same type of ore that Cobalt was to Wrath of the Lich King, meaning it’s the first ore you’ll run across when entering Cataclysm.

The best spot and only spot that is recommended to farm Obsidium Deposits is Mount Hyjal because it is accessible via flying and there are no pre-quests to get to this zone. The other option is Vashj’ir which is an underwater zone that was added in Cataclysm. Most players do not prefer to mine under the water and that is why Mount Hyjal is currently the best zone to farm it in.

Keep in mind as you do quests through Mount Hyjal the zone will change in some areas, this should not have a major impact on the mining routes in Mount Hyjal but the new phased in content idea of this expansion is in full effect.

Stress Less For Poker Success – Is Stress Holding You Back?

I’m going to be completely honest with you. The ingredient I’m about to tell you about doesn’t have near the amount of clinical evidence supporting its use as Rhodiola does. In fact, I’d say it has little evidence supporting it. That’s precisely why it took 4 years of convincing from one of my good friends before I even tried it. What it lacks in clinical evidence, it makes up for in real-world feedback.

I credit Bacopa monniera for single-handedly changing my primary principle from which my professional reputation was built upon. Prior to Bacopa, my mantra was “Nutraceuticals that are strongly supported by clinical evidence.” I was damn tired of being fooled by the marketing of these dietary supplement companies. I was not going to have my reputation hurt by those very same companies. Thus, I went to the medical journals for evidence. If the medical journals supported a nutraceutical, then I was comfortable recommending it. My world was quickly turned upside down.

Then Bacopa came along. So little clinical evidence. So much real-world feedback. What was I do to? I bit the bullet, and tried it. Let’s just say my new mantra is “Nutraceutials supported by clinical evidence AND real-world feedback.” I quickly learned that if I waited for every nutraceutical to have a large amount of clinical evidence supporting its use, I’d be 10 years behind the innovators. Innovation along with documentation is now the key to my success. I may look like a renegade practitioner to some traditional medical professionals, however I’m light years ahead of them. When they say renegade, I say innovator.

Bacopa monniera

What is it?

Also known as Brahmi, has been used for several hundred years in Ayurvedic medicine. Typically grown in India and the tropics, its primary benefits all involve the brain.

Improved memory

Improved learning

Improved concentration

Decreased anxiety

Antioxidant properties

Like all herbals, it contains multiple compounds that are responsible for its beneficial effects. The two that are important to its cognitive-enhancing abilities are bacosides A and B. Thus, that will be your “alcohol proof” for Bacopa.

How it works?

Once again like most herbals, there are multiple theories on how Bacopa improves mental performance. They include:

Enhancing nerve impulse transmission

Helping repair damaged neurons through multiple mechanisms

Antioxidant activity in the hippocampus, frontal cortex, and striatum

Thus, there’s really not just one way Bacopa works. It has an entire arsenal of cognitive-enhancing weapons.

Dosage

When using an extract, the typical dosage is 200-400mg in divided doses standardized to 20% A and B bacosides. I personally use 200-400mg standardized to 50% A and B bacosides. Because of the lack of clinical evidence supporting its use, I feel there’s an unknown as to exactly what the best dosage is. I had to tinker with my dosage until I found what I felt was right for me. I suggest you do the same. The above is a good starting dosage.

Why I like it for poker

Unlike Rhodiola which can be used in acute situations, Bacopa can take anywhere from 6-12 weeks to see the benefits. In fact, the studies that I read, the average time it took to see the benefits was around 6 weeks. Thus, I use it year-round. Over the long haul, it helps to minimize my every day “normal” stress. When things get particularly stressful, I’ll add Rhodiola anywhere from 1-3 weeks. I’ve found using Bacopa year round and adding Rhodiola every once in the while works the best for me. There’s a synergy between the two.

Most poker players play on-line almost every day or every couple of days, while participating in major tournaments once or twice a month. Using Bacopa every day combats the stress of the nightly games, while adding Rhodiola for a week during the tournament is particularly helpful. It’s very convenient for poker players.

Secondly, not only does it help with stress, but it also has cognitive-enhancing capabilities. I’m sure you’ve already noticed that the majority of what I’ve recommend thus far always has cognitive-enhancing effects. I’m always looking for the most efficient nutracueticals available. If I can kill two birds with one stone, GREAT. Bacopa and Rhodiola both fit this profile. I always look at everything from a mental standpoint. Will this nutraceutical improve my mental performance? Mental performance is of paramount importance to me as it is to you also.

I firmly believe that the best poker players in the world are masters of their emotions. Success at the poker table is largely the sum of checking your ego at the door, minimizing mental fatigue, and controlling your emotions. If you can control those three things, you will quickly separate yourself from the pack.

When I look back over my last 10 or so losses, the other guy never really flat out beat me. I almost always beat myself. Probably 7 out of 10 times. Either my ego made the wrong call, I was mentally drained and made a stupid mistake, or I made an emotional, not rational move. Stupid mistakes that will always hold me back from reaching my true potential. Memorizing the odds, the strategy, and the player’s trends is relatively easy for me. However, playing rational, checking my ego at the door, and following my head not my heart is so tough.

That’s why I believe nutraceuticals can have a major impact on your game. They may not be able to check your ego at the door, but I know they’ll improve your mental energy and cognitive abilities while also minimize the stress, anxiety, and pressure associated with poker. When I’m stressed or anxious, I’m emotional. Rationality and everything else I learned about the game of poker goes out the door.

Finding that critical balance between relaxation and stimulation is the key. Like the reader pointed out in the first e-mail I posted, in poker over-stimulation is just as bad as mental fatigue. It’s finding that sweet spot, that exact feeling where you’re so relaxed, yet so focused. That’s the zone. That’s minimizing stress and anxiety while improving mental energy. That’s the goal for my nootropic regimen.

There you go. Read it over. Do a search for Bacopa on the internet, and let me know what you think. I’ll post the small amount of studies I have later tonight. Like I said, the real-world feedback trumps the clinical evidence for this ingredient. Good luck and may the cards fall your way.
