Why give him your full 2000$ up front? If he is not going to physically put the wood to you, then pay his behind in 500-1000 dollar installments......with 500 down...remember that YOU are the client, and he needs YOU to do business and your action balances out his book.

Keep capping and making picks in the mean time....bet your 25-75$ picks per game (probably offshore)  with the excess money and get used to the ebbs and flows of gambling...rack up the experience.

Get used to how it feels to be in the red....understand how being "down" affects your handicapping, and how it affects your life in general.

Everyone goes down sometimes...just figure out how to deal with it mentally, and still stay functional.

If the guy wants all his money right now and gets nasty, then pay him  like you were planning on doing and find another way to bet or line up  several other "outs".....and never let the bookie know how much money you have access to, or is in your bank account....he is a broker, pure and simple, and it is none of his friggin business what you have!!

As for buying picks, I agree with everyone else on this thread...darn that.  Make your own picks, do your own work.  If you want to buy anything, buy information...access to a sports database is a good idea as are streaming lines (but that is down the road).

I have been in your shoes before when I was first starting out....betting way over my head, and it cost me.  But as long as you don't go down for the count, you can  turn this experience into a positive.

Like the Kenny Rogers song The Gambler...."if you are going to play the game, you gotta learn to play it right".
