    Imagine you're the Lead Operation Manager at an offshore book

    You notice a customer is a straight-laced winning player.. Do you cut him off? If so when?

    All options in the poll pertain to the player withdrawing that amount.

    You don't cut him. You use his plays and bet at another book.

    Why do you think it doesn't sound practical? Of course it's practical. Bookies lay off action all the time

    Paver gave you the most correct answer

    Limit him, delay him, etc.... But you want his plays

    Pretty sure the books got raped today. Warriors won and covered, Spurs won and covered. Cavs won. Cubs won.

    Do bookies really place bets? Sounds so unethical.

    It's not practical to use his plays to place bets at another book. What happens if when you decide to use his plays and tail him then the customer goes ice cold?

    Keep him for sharp plays, hedge his bets off another book.

    These responses are phucked...



    There are thousands of customers at most books offshore.

    you think you're gonna just locate a guy who's ripping it up and hedge his bets off at another book ?

    you better believe it back in the mw days there was a poster who ran an offshore book (Mr. Falcone R.I.P) he had a sharp there and he would post his plays for the forum pretty often usually the value was gone but he was using his plays for his own action

    find me a book that doesn't know who their sharps are and I'll show you a book going broke quickly.

    If you don't think they lay off action your wrong.

    Never. Learn how to balance your book if you run a book. Stop being a greedy asshole and you might actually build up some volume.

    Yes. A basic database program can locate anybody with ease. All the books have them.

    Never, bad for business. As long as he's under 100k he's not even a fly on the wall.

    I'd never cut him off.

    However, if I notice a customer who is a gay-laced winning player, I'd cut him off immediately.
