The National Handicapping Championship takes place this week in Las Vegas.


Handicappers descend on sin city to try their handicapping skills vs their peers.


For me, its already begun, I have received emails already this week, about finding "bombs".


One email wanted me to give'em an idea on how tracks will play, 72 TO 96 hours in advance.


Another email wanted to know if I was following anything at a price, once again 72-to-96 hours in advance.


Some are already looking at the mandatories, 72 hours in advance.


I am sure you don't handicap that way. I sure don't.


For example, I am working on Wednesday and tomorrow will finish the Thursday works, check weather, and add them before handicapping for Thursday, rinse and repeat Thursday for Friday.


That's the schedule and it's not going to change, why ?


BECAUSE I AM SUCCESSFUL THAT WAY. You don't change what makes you successful, besides you pick something tonight, you will change your mind three times before the horse runs. Mark my words!


I am NOT changing anything I do. I will do what makes us successful. so take one day at a time.


That was my advice for a player who reached out and simply asked "any advice''.


Yes, in big bold letters "TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME'', you are going to be tempted to win the contest on the first day. You will be tempted to know what you like on Friday and Saturday, on Wednesday.


If that is your approach, you will get drubbed.


Nothing should be etched in stone, you play like you are at the track, and you tell no one 'what you're thinking!", not even your grandmother if she was in the room.


So, these aren't suggestions, these are KEY strategic modes you should be in:


1.) TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME

2.) DON'T TELL THEM WHAT YOU'RE THINKING

3.) BE FLEXBILE

4.) BE A GOLDFISH

5.) The most important thing: BELIEVE





WHY A GOLDFISH ?


Goldfish have short term memory like of, like, 2 seconds.


Be a Goldfish named bubbles, always move forward and never backwards, so you move forward all weekend whether you had a good win or a bad beat.


You don't got strutting around like a peacock if you get a price in, or tell everyone within ear shot 'you are a genius' because in the next race, you can look like a dumb-ass.


You don't paint a bullseye on your back. These people are NOT your friends and one specific thing: NO STRIP CLUBS ! PERIOD! BAD IDEA!




You can't concentrate when you spent the night at the strip club.



You have to BELIEVE! That is mandatory!




You have to BELIEVE and you can't BELIEVE if you are re-hashing bad beats, playing chummy with a foe, or even telling another player how much you know.


You can't also believe if you pull an all-nighter, boozing. Stay the $@%K away from alcohol!


So, this week, this is the new YOU, next week you can go back to being a degenerate, this week you are a Samurai with a betting sword:




LET'S RECAP, TO MAKE SURE.


You handle ONE DAY AT A TIME, you are a GOLDFISH, not a peacock, NO ALCOHOL and/or STRIPPERS and YOU BELIEVE


OK, so now go get'em
