    Here is an excellent suggestion.....open back up to the US market. What most of us would give to be able to play at Pinnacle again. Without a doubt the best book in the industry. Enjoyed my time while I was there till my corrupted government had to make matters worse.

    Sadly, we will be limiting ourselves to discussion of the Pulse itself and future topics. Other suggestions and criticisms that are not about the Pinnacle Pulse can be addressed to csd@pinnaclesports.com

    Thanks for sharing this time Pinnacle Pulse. We all know it's not Pinnacle that was forced to withdraw from the US market. Just wanted you guys to know you are a solid book and was one of the best for US based customers.

    Pinnacle is just another book now, so the pulse means nothing anymore. Sad how Pinnacle caved in.

    Ah JJ, you are such a lovable curmudgeon. I think if you read the content, you'll find that it's not just the sharp action we are highlighting anymore (which is still quite valid, regardless of what Mr. Gold thinks), but we are now in the process of actively helping readers become more profitable.

    In short, we mean more than ever.

    So previously you were NOT 'in the process of actively helping readers become more profitable'? Would you care to explain; if only so new readers can more fully appreciate the difference?

    Last year's PP had some very strange claims and statements, that could easily have been interpreted as a book directing, rather than informing, the trusting public.

    A bit less sharps around there without taking action from the U.S. market

    I repeat, this can not be right. Why would pinnacle post lines for NCAA or WNBA halftimes? Why we can see blue circled games for MLB and NBA, which means they have big liquidity on those markets?

    "more profitable" is just a fancy way of saying "less losing". It is still good though.

    magnavox: That would be a question for the customer service address I listed above. I can tell you that The Next Level column will be dealing with runline strategies for the next two weeks though, and look forward to your responses on those.

    Because the true sharps moved so they could continue betting? ;-)

    I remember those nice publications. Generally it was something like this...

    All of our "sharp" bettors are on Ohio State this weekend and the money just keeps pouring in with no end in sight. If you like the Buckeyes, you should bet them now as we're not going to be able to hold -7.5 for too much longer. These sharps just won't stop. There's another bet and another...Hurry!

    Sounded like an infomercial for oceanview property in Arkansas. Since then I haven't devoted a lot of time to reading any other offerings.

    Pinnacle Pulse last year you would put info in your newsletter to sway bettors one way and then you woud jack lines up on that side, I was one of very few sharps that picked up on it.

    Americans will never forget how you caved into the usa gov't and how you were unprepared for the new laws.

    Spiro, Jay Cohen, Steve, Mickey were prepared and are flourishing. Pinnacle volume is way down.

    With regard to the sharp plays, what we have here is a problem of cause and effect.

    The Inside Line article (which is previously all the Pinnacle Pulse was) is designed to report what our sharps our playing up until that point in the week. What happens after the information on what our sharps are betting gets out is beyond our control - our lines are responsive to where the action is. Many players use this as a good reason to play the other side, because they feel the lines have been driven to the point where there is now value in going against the sharp. Which strategy is right is dependent entirely on the specifics of the situation.

    In the coming weeks, we will be trying out some new ways of conveying sharp plays on baseball, soccer, and a number of sports. There is no plan to make them "infomercials" as has been suggested - we simply want them to be informative and perhaps expand the betting repertoire of our customers. A lot of what we will have to say will be useful across the betting world, so even those of you without direct access to PinnacleSports.com can still take value from the Pinnacle Pulse.

    We feel that you'll find value in what we have to say, but if not, we're also happy to hear your criticism of the Pulse and adapt to what the readers are looking for.

    Thanks for clarifying PP. Pinnacle is respected as a very sharp book. And it was obvious that last year's series of Pulses was anything but sharp. So the obvious question is why, and the answer isn't too hard to imagine.

    Suggestions? I'd like to read a series of articles by your former Computer Grouper.

    PP is a great read. In one article it said what they considered a bad line. They broke it down into percentage. SBR should have read the article because they have no idea if a line is bad.

    yes exactly!
    do not listen to jealousy isetcap, darkhorse, jjgold and other US members. I liked the way of pinnacle pulse. What else could main sportsbook post? Cooking recipes? The money flows and moves are interesting. I would like to know more about it. How big are volumes, how do you spot sharps, are the line moves automatical based on some formula as function of money flows and sharpness etc? Few days ago I maxed a stable line then i saw some 5 cent move and in few seconds came much bigger move. Was that some human adjustment of the line? etc... Simply i want know more how do you search for value.

    Lucas: Sometimes syndicates hit a line multiple times. Pinnacle (or some other book) will move in response to the first hit, and then again. Something else to consider: syndicates will often "take out the screen" and maxbet every reputable book on the planet who's line was positive ev. Books hate that because they then get stuck with a "bad line".

    wheell i know that, but it would be rare coincidence, line was up for few hours without movement, maybe somebody else hit it at the time when i hit it, but i doubt... i bet it because i liked it, there was no some new info that could cause steam;

    IMO first small move was done automatically and second adjustment of the move on total numblers by 2 full points must be done manually

    Lucas: I'm not sure, it is possible that there was a bot that was programmed to play a side if it looks like the sharps are on it and hit your line BECAUSE it moved. A steam bot.

    yes maybe, but i doubt that somebody would program a bot for overnight line with max 714 to win

    i guess if pinnacle does not move odds but whole spread or total numbers then it is manual move

    i think those information could be interesting for readers

    you should have more live games for soccer and you should have those "livelines" that you have for hockey or basketball also for soccer. You have that for Spanish basketball but not for Spanish soccer for example.
    also, the interface for livegames sucks. take a look at MAnsion88 or other asians. you have the the worst interface in business

    2 problems

    1) all time are posted on PST. unless you're in Los Angeles, this is very annoying. I think pinnacle should use standard time zone...either GMT or EST

    2) not all games listed on pinnacle are listed. for example, aussie football and international basketball. i would rather use livescore.com than pinnacle pulse at this point.
