    How much do you aim to make a day? Or do you not have a goal?

    Currently up 410 on the day going 3-3 so far and have duke +5.5 (-138) for the game. Curious to know why I am not happy being up this amount. If duke covers +5.5 that is $96.4 an hour. Why can't I be happy with that? Why am I looking at this trash orlando/lac game? Curious to know if everyone has a daily goal or if you just fire away?

    first of all you should probably pay more attention to units won/lost, not dollars.

    I don't have a daily goal, I only bet games that I plan to win. Don't go on tilt fellow sparty

    because for most the biggest rush in sports betting is losing ,not winning

    you'll feel more alive tomorrow when you lose it all

    that's nice 7 plays on a Wednesday! You posted losing 20 straight bets and you are seriously asking for goals?? Just fire away??? Yep, that's what you seem to do, so why even ask??

    Work it backwards

    How much $$$ do you need per year

    divide by 48 (weeks)

    divide that by 4* = Unit amount

    shoot for +4 units per week

    Unit amount x 100 = starting BR

    * Can vary depending on Vol of bets

    Isn't it amazing?
    People are happy with a $20,$25,$30 a hour job. 90% of people are happy with that wage. After taxes and whatever else we get like $13-$15 a hour take home (from the lower end of the scale)
    Let's say $15 a hour take home. 8 hour work day you pocket $120

    Yesterday I played poker 1-2nl for 3 hours and I was up $90.
    I'm like wtf I'm only up $90 this sucks.
    So....making $30 cash a hour isn't enough?

    It's how all us gamblers are. WE WANT MORE. WE WANT THOUSANDS FAST AND NOW
