i haven't read this entire thread and probably won't:

here is my take....there are people that win at sports investing, that i do know...whether you straight up handicap, trade, arbitrage, or a cominbation of these....you have to have a clear mind, be competent with numbers, have money managements skills, etc....most people that win will not post on these sports forums, though some will....i find it hard to believe that people on yachts getting bj's from supermodels are posting on covers:)....

good luck fellas

I have been cut off at several books - but not books worth playing at.  Matchbook will never cut anyone off because the exchange style isnt hurt at all by winners, and pinnacle wont either.

Anyone can tell you that recreational books will cut you off or make your limits ridiculous if you continuously beat them, but there is a list of about 10 books that wont cut anyone off.

Van, would you mind giving me that list of the 10 books that won't cut you off? Or even a list of 5? I'm live in the USA so can't use Pinnacle but would love to know a few others who won't cut you off if you don't mind revealing? Can you tell me 3 of those books? Looking to choose 1 or 2. Thanks Van!

Funny as it sounds, I would bet small and used good bankroll management

almost all straight bets and a few Money line parlays

I wouldnt be a degen, I would bet only when I thought I had an advantage

Didn't have time to read it all, but hit some of the highlights.  That post about "A" gamblers and "B" gamblers is just fantastic.  


I will be back.
