Online Casino

Any time you play at an online casino or live in Vegas and no matter what game(s) you choose to play, the overriding factor in whether or not you will attain success is discipline through money management. There are countless experts in the various casino games such as Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Video Poker, Baccarat and on down the line who lose big money despite their expertise. In a match-up between an expert at a particular casino game and an expert at bankroll management, the player that knows how to manage an online casino bankroll will succeed far more than the expert at any game that lacks discipline and self control.

The first part of developing a successful online casino strategy is organizing your gambling bankroll. You should split the bankroll apart for different gambling sessions that are based on a loss limit. For example, if you have a $1,000 gambling bankroll you could break that down into 10 session/sections of $100 each. That means that you can play for as long as that $100 lasts but once it is gone you must cut off the session and walk away. With a loss limit that is strictly enforced through discipline, you can have money management byav0iding going on �tilt� and chasing bad losses with bad money. Play online casino games at the Bodog casino with a 10% signup bonus, over $1,000,000 USD in progressive jackpots and even on your mobile phone.

Much of gambling comes down to preserving your bankroll so that you will be around and in the game when Lady Luck smiles upon you. The gambler that blows the entire bankroll in one session is never around for that swing of luck. While expertise at a particular game is great and an important ingredient of success, it is meaningless without the discipline and expertise of managing a gambling bankroll. Always keep in mind that you cannot win if you are out of the game and busted with no bankroll. Staying in the game is part of winning the game. The Bodog casino offers a weekly comp program for playing online casino games and also a $100 refer a friend bonus.

High doses of caffeine can increase muscle power and endurance, researchers from Coventry University said in a news release.


The scientists said the work could have an impact on how caffeine is used in sports.


"A small increase in performance via caffeine could mean the difference between a gold medal in the Olympics and an also-ran", said lead researcher Dr. Rob James.


Caffeine is not currently listed by the World Anti-Doping Agency as a banned substance, according to a news release on the new study. Before 2004, there was a level of caffeine athletes could not exceed.


The study tested muscle use in mice at both maximal and sub-maximal levels. Maximal is efforts such as sprinting or weight lifting; sub-maximal covers everyday activity and sports at lower intensities.


A high does of caffeine boosted performance by about 6 percent during both types of activities. Researchers said that effect could be similar in people.
