    Local Guy Limiting Plays

    I'm trying not to read into this too much - but can't help myself, so wanted to get feedback. Sorry for long post....

    I use a local guy for bigger plays, have been using him for a few years now and though i've never met him personally, it's worked out well - no issues. No gain/loss limit - only a payout threshold on Tuesday AM.

    After having a great football season, this past winter/spring has been the first year i've done college bball and baseball.

    I got killed in march madness - basically washed out football - poor money management whatever. Played baseball pretty even and had a good season except the last week leading into NCAAF. I got killed going into opening saturday and was down a fair amount. I made huge swing in college football made some big plays (usually a 1-5 unit player, made 2x 10unit plays and a lot of 5u plays) while down and got myself out. went something stupid like 11-3 or something.

    Tuesday rolls around, get paid, get a text saying my game limit is capped at 5units. Never before has he done this. Figured it was a bad weekend or something, no clue.

    Week 2 rolls in, i make a couple MLB plays, up 7units. Football comes saturday, have a great day, up 14units and i stop because i want paid on tuesday. Tuesday rolls around, get paid, get a text...capped at 3u.

    I ask why and he said he thinks its shady with being down and making big plays. Taking big breaks under the threshold, etc. I say i'm just trying to make back what i lost during march madness and he said thats the point, if i'm low i shouldn't be making big bets that i don't typically make.

    Just don't know what to make of it - it kinda got in my head and i've been on a hot streak.

    Just go offshore with a few good books, not to mention alot of vip rewards with offshore. If you are looking to be needing any of that cash before a quarter year goes by, i guess stay where you are at.

    Book is covering his own behind.

    *You made the mistake of taking big swings and hitting the ball out of the park.
    Book doesn't take kindly to getting dented.
    Spread big plays over several outs.

    What i figured - not a problem, just first it's happened. Not used to using the offshores in that way but depending on how this week goes might give it a go.

    He probably thinks with going heavy as you stated , 10x and hitting something is up .
    Use to be a runner , they know their clients tendencies, when you start betting more , they have a feeling , you're going to max out your limit , in which you can't pay or get lucky , as you stated and he's not going to be having a chance to get it back because you go back to your tendencies of 1 or 2 units per game after hitting it big .
    Problem with a local , he controls you . He can easily do what he did and possibly even limit it all to 1 or 2 units .
    I'm certain he's had the same thing happen but the opposite , client maxed out their limit to not see a dime of it . So it's not that abnormal being around it while growing up .
    I've seen 1 bettor , a Doctor , lost more than the rest of their clients put together won . He couldn't pay it because locals for the most part is on credit and instead of being an overall profitable week , lost their ass because 1 person couldn't pay .
    Why do most use a local ? May not be you but 90+% is because it's credit , so they're leary when big bets pop up like that at some point, they aren't getting paid on the double or nothing bet or someone can't hit a bet to save their life .

    How do you have a local that you've never met?

    Anyway, to solve your problem just go offshore. It's so easy these days.

    Gotta agree w the man here. You obviously were taking shots at him after being down (you admit 10x not your normal play) so guy feels thereís no good faith anymore.

    If you went 3-11 w those bet sizes could you have settled?

    Yeah I donít bet what I canít afford to lose or pay, but they were my confidence plays for the day. I mean itís just business, so yeah if he needs to cover his ass for a few weeks and limit me I get it.

    I felt like he was - never missed a payout, feel pretty confident his actions were warranted.

    That isnít the case though, and is ultimately my point. While normally 3-5u player, Iíve made 10u plays with him and have lost. March madness prime example and I paid up.

    Do I think he said wtf, most definitely, but I donít think it had to do with big plays while down and if it did he obviously didnít care to consider the big plays Iíve lost while down.

    I donít really care enough to make a stink about it because I can just as easily make the plays offshore or drive up to Vegas. I just like the credit model using a local offers.
