SBRforum interview with the lucky Bookmaker player and forum member (continued at bottom):
SBR: Congratulations on your 10-team parlay win! Can you tell
us a little bit about what your state of mind was when you made the
parlay? Was this a normal bet for you, did you place straight wagers on
any of the teams straight up? Were you "chasing" as they call it when
making this wager?
Winning poster: I do lots of parlays for fun. I do straight
bets as well when I find value. I was actually confident about most of
the picks in the parlay. I think only one game was close out of those 10
picks. Rest of the 9 picks won pretty comfortably. So, I wasn't doing a
lot of sweating in these games.
SBR: That's certainly brazen of you. I've got to ask since
we're all curious here, what do you plan to do with the winnings? Any
definite plans already?
Winning poster: I am planning to donate part of the winnings
to Japan Earth Quake Relief. They need all of our help now. Besides
that, I want to pay off my education loans. The rest, I am planning to
invest in some stocks / ventures.
SBR: What were you thinking watching the games? How badly were you sweating on the last pick?
Winning poster: I wasn't worried too much about the parlay to
be frank. If this parlay lost, I can make another parlay...that was my
thinking . As I mentioned earlier, most of my picks won comfortably.
So, I didnt
have to sweat most of my games. I was also confident with most of the
picks I made.
SBR: Did you hedge out of this parlay at all?
Winning poster: Yes. I did hedge my last leg. I had Pacers ML
in my parlay against the nets. I hedged by taking Nets ML for 5k. But I
didn't hedge in any of the remaining 9 legs.

San José, Costa Rica - Loyal customer D.N. -whose identity and location are protected for confidentiality reasons-, received a US$139,755 payout for his 10-team parlay winnings at BookMaker.com.

SBR: Are there any more 10-team parlays in your future, will
your betting strategy change at all in light of the bankroll freedom a
win this big surely must provide?
Winning poster: Yes. I will continue to do parlays. They are
lots of fun with big payouts . Yes, they are tough to hit....but when
you do hit, it feels great . Of course, I will be making lot of straight
bets as well. But I pick my spots with those. I am looking forward to
NBA playoffs this year. Its always profitable .
SBR: Are there any fellow SBRforum posters who know about this awesome score? Do you talk to or tail any posters on a regular basis?
Winning poster: No, I dont think I have mentioned about my
winnings to anybody here in SBR. I am not a show-off. There are many
sharp posters here in SBR who win much more than I do. So, I dont boast
about my winnings. In terms of whom I tail, I used to follow (SBRforum
poster) Lakerboy. But he is not posting much this year. I do check out
some of the leans by (SBRforum poster) No Coin. But generally, I cap my
own games. I do however check out some of the leans by posters. There
are always people who have meaningful insights here .
SBR: Thanks for taking the time to chat with us today. I have
just one last question for you, do you plan on renewing your SBR Pro
membership next year?
Winning poster: Of course. I will be a SBR Pro forever. I love SBR.
