Kudos to the Board of Elections

Most people probably haven't given much thought to the North Carolina Board of Elections since Tuesday. That's because nothing really went wrong. And that's pretty remarkable given the turnout and historic nature of the primary. The BOE really deserves some credit for a job well done.

Beyond running an incredibly smooth election, the new election results reporting interface they unveiled was outstanding. Results came in quickly, and it was easy to see which counties had come in and which ones hadn't. I've never felt like I had such a strong handle on the results of a statewide election before

Congratulations to Gary Bartlett and his folks on a job very well done.

If you are a novice gambler you probably haven’t heard the term but professional bettors who earn their livelihood from sports betting use the method all the time taking advantage of the variance in odds from the opinions of the diverse number of bookmakers. Even though it sounds as if it is a no risk situation that may not always be the case and there some issues that can cause you to lose.

Still, there are tons of bettors looking through rose colored glasses for the holy grail of betting systems that will let them make money without risking any. Well, there is a way to do that and it is called work! Gambling is called gambling for a reason, it’s risky. Let’s take a look at some sports betting systems.

It appears that the United States legal system is closer than ever before to cutting off ties with any type of online gambling within its boundaries. This includes poker, casinos, and sports betting among others. Generally speaking, anything that has to do with transmitting money via the internet as far as gambling is concerned is being cracked down on quite harshly.

Another important subject I must briefly refer to is "catch-up" staking. If you find that you need to employ this tactic regularly, it means three things: (1) your Selection System sucks, (2) you haven't got a clue about what constitutes a proper Staking Plan, and (3) you have turned your chances of regularly and quickly losing your Base Bank to a 100% certainty!
