What are these 'local' books? I am in southern california and would really like to follow Tahoe's every play. Can anyone please help? Thanks.
P.S. One time someone posted about new book starting in Orange County. How do these work? Are they reliable?
A local book is someone other than vegas that takes your bets and usually is illegal but people who dont live in vegas do it anyway if they dont want an offshore account or going to mexico as an alternative to go to vegas. Btw, offshore is techinically illegal too.
If you live in so cal like I do, you probably know someone that is an agent to a local. Ask your gambling buddies if they know one, they usually give u an account and password to a site and all transactions are done there, usually the local book will let u play on credit and will collect weekly, biweekly, monthly, that all depends on who ur local book is.
Ask people you KNOW since it usually is done on credit and you dont want to get into a situation with someone you really dont know.
I would not recommend you trying to find a local via covers
