    I annually strive for two acres of land, a couple goats, and a wheel of cheese.

    To, despite my gambling, save at least something for vacation, or a big purchase to benefit my household.

    So far so good.

    A measly 30k for me which I can live off that amount, but so far this year through 5.5 months I’m negative -2.5k so this is trending on a down year so far for sure.

    I only bet on key games (easy money) 6-8 times a year then put the winnings in Real Estate. Been doing this for the past 5 years. I think it's simple, the more you bet the more you're guaranteed to lose. Stevie Wonder can see that

    Protect the sports bank! 90% is post up / transfers can happen / withdrawals from the bank to scrape off winnings is possible but no deposits to the bank will ever happen again. If the bank would ever be gone - show is over!

    I've done $15k net this year and $17k when I include bonuses. Most of that is from NBA, which will end soon, unfortunately. I'm thinking maybe $20k total for the year would be a good goal?

    I'd like to see a solid 2000 plays each year across the meat of the Funds, inluding the market tracking Funds.

    Around those market tracking Funds will be Aggressive Trader plays. We get all of them together to 2000, give or take, I can reach expectations and also be able to rotate around markets.

    The COVID year was an issue for me, a lot of business lost there.

    It might be a goal, but the markets dictate a lot, not just the daily market itself, but also how many plays get generated by the Funds (Not market tracking Funds). I've had some Funds dry up year to year, with no plays, as the market catches up.

    Try to avoid that, but sometimes it just happens.

    For many years I used this as a ice breaker for conversations. Sports in general , the gambling aspect was a corollary. To use or not depending on the circumstances.. I have a structured step program and have followed it for many years. For now I budget funds for March Madness. Baseball futures and football season. If I win I cashed out and use it for sometime. If I tap out I allow one 50% reload chase. At the moment this cycle begun with the French Open and concludes with the Olympics.
    My goal this cycle is to win enough to pay for my next car insurance bill. I'm about 1/2 way there.
    Middle to high 3 figures.
