    My new years resolution to myself was to make sure I always have a five-figure bankroll, no matter what. If I have to steal from relatives then so be it. Gotta stay in the game.

    It is almost impossible to win the biggest ROI you can maybe have is like 5%. 5% of $50 is $2.50 so you are spending time and gas to make $2.50 of value, that is why you have to bet big to have a chance. Yes it is nice when you go 3-1 and make $95 but you have to understand you are making at best $10 a day long term betting 50 a game.

    This is obv true and a good realistic view. Hopefully you can build your bankroll over time though and make bigger bets when you're rolled for it.

    That means a $5000 bankroll. If you wager correctly at 1%. I doubt all guys have that jj. What really matters is bankroll growth.. This occurs when a bettor is able to hit -110 bets at a 55% win rate.

    So you have a 10k bankroll. 1%. But steal your mothers jewelry? Wtf?! Or is your bankroll based on theft and pawn of the week. ?

    Every time I bet under $50 I am made fun of in my local area and many many think I'm a pussy.

    To earn gambling respect must bet 100 or more

    The blue chart in the center if the winning %.s article is perfect. It shows that at -110 wager. If you wagered 100 bets at a win rate of 55%. Flat bet 1% of bank roll. You would be up 5.5 bets. With sams. $50 example that is $275. Up. In beat the prick standings i finished 56.1%. Up 10.25u. This due to sbrs 2x bet bet rule. Good range 1% or best bet 2%. The top winner in beat the prick hit a massive 66.3% win rate. At sams $50 example. He would be up $1350 on 100 wagers. In the end he is close to charts up 26.5 wagers with +34u. This due to him hitting his 2% best bet. Anyway point is the % chart correlates well with sbr beat the prick final standings. ( i know a few are pending today). And anyone wanting to be a pro bettor would do better to follow a similiar path. When wagering nfl. Nba. Or cbb. I.e. a larger amount of flat wagers at a 54%.or higher win rate.

    Respect is hitting a professional level of wagers in beat the prick. Follow that pattern and bankroll grows accordingly

    Not the same Richi. I don't have a card with a limit under $20k, but i don't use them to gamble.
