    Thanks Unde. I am going to call Tony at 5 dimes and make him put limits on my bets (actually I called twice and they said he is out of the country) and only he can do it. Of course I proceeded to lose after that. I most likely will be at SBR for as long as I live or SBR lives.

    The guy is a textbook case of someone with a massive gambling issue. Bets just to bet, only takes huge ML favorites, and loses way more than he makes.

    jayc88 is 100% correct.

    Can't feel sorry for a guy that does it to himself, even when better people warn him against it time and time again. Some people just like to set themselves up to fail.
    lol. Astro you summed it up. I am a compulsive gambler with no control. Currently working on that.

    If you just look at what you have lost on these, I mean actually sit down and add up losses from these types of plays I think you won't need Tony to do anything. The numbers will just jump off the page and slap you in the face. The amount of plays you could make with the money you risk on just one of these plays to win basically nothing is what you have to realize. You could have won that amount of money taking a small dog betting $25 instead of $226. Even if that play loses then you would be looking at $200 balance instead of the $0.00

    Have you ever cashed out from 5 dimes? What's the most you've ever been up or have had in your account there?

    If you are losing $50-$100 each week and never cashing out, that stuff can add up quick.

    $5k ain't terrible. Look at it like a hobby that you pay $2k a year to participate in if you can't stop. No big deal.

    I actually had a terrible day this weekend....so having had a lot to drink, I wagered $4500 (on two different sites) on a -367 fave to try to recoup some of the loss. What a bozo move. I will never do that again.

    I ended up winning, but I was behind most of the game and got lucky. Betting favourites sucks!!

    It's relative. Otters is constantly making it seem like he's all in on these massive MLs. If you don't have much extra cash then 5k is a lot. It's a lost cause, just have to live and learn. Usually people learn, but not always.

    I've stopped feeling bad for him. One of the first things I learned is taking massive ML favs is a bad idea, as well as including the same game in every parlay.

    Appreciate the honesty. I don't want people to feel bad for me. I love gambling and don't mind losing the money. The issue was that I promised someone I wouldn't make the bet. I felt like it was ment to lose so that I could have an open and honest conversation with that person. Long story short thing have been resolved and thing are good now.

    Who did you promise? Besides me, that is. I need to know how the story ends, Otter.

    Was a season long league on Fantrax. If you like DFS fanpicks does college hoops and football, haven't played there though.

    Keep your head up Otters, make the adjustments in your betting and you will be fine.
