    If you have patience, discipline, good money management and selections you can start with as little as 5k and start seeing some nice returns within a few months. 99% of bettors don't have the head-game, let alone the smarts to beat the juice and books. And the ones who do may not have a huge roll to put down or don't feel comfortable risking 100's or 1,000s of dollars a game which leaves a tiny fraction of people who can consistently make money at this year after year (I am not one of them).

    And I usually like to deposit around 1,000 and most always make the terrible decision to bet too big on deposit day and bet on shit I know nothing about like Soccer, foreign hockey or euroleague.

    Has Anyone ever been limited on 5Dimes? Can someone advise and at what point was it? When you made 10K? 30K?

    Useless data. Limiting is not usually based on amount won...

    They care far more about the kind of bets you making than how much you won. Anyone can get hot or have a great season and run up a nice number. If you did so by beating majority of the closers they might worry, but unless they peg you as seriously only making plays with a edge they rather you keep going. Be dumb to limit someone after a hot streak!

    If youíre just starting out (and not a pro who is using Kelly bet sizing) I would suggest never wagering more than say, 1.5% of your entire bankroll on any one sporting event.
    Weíve discussed this in Vegas.

    If you play everyday ok

    But if you have a system/idea then that is no good.

    Stop looking for rules. Find a way to profit and if you canít quit. No amount of advice or reading will make you win at betting sports.

    it solely depends on your financial situation, however the most important one is indeed keeping it fun, then you have nothing to lose, at least you entertained yourself

I know more about football wagering than ANYONE else in this place because I have been doing it successfully longer than anyone else in here. I was taught by some of the best in the business, and I paid attention, listened, and learned my trade just like anyone would do learning a trade. If you have that kind of dedication and self control, you can succeed. The problem in here is simple. NO ONE has that kind of dedication and/or self control.
    Yeah right... I thought your ratty grandchildren made your picks. You are a loser and a fraud.
