    Has this ever happened to you

    I wasn't going to tell this but what the heck!!

    Oct 10th I Deposited $100 in Fandual It was my first usa deposit. It went really well with bonuses and wins by Dec 31st it had grew to almost $3000. From Jan 1st til the Super Bowl I lost down to $350 left, and lost it on SB. I had never Used Live Bet before and it was going great until it wasn't!! Basketball killed me!! I cant complain it was just $100 of my money but I never had that kind of % winning before.

    You are the opening act for the Woj.

    No offence but not much of a story.. you built $100 to 3k then blew it… happens everyday.

    I did this before with betpoints. But never with cash at a book. You can't chase with cash. You got to cash out. Take a week off to relax and then start again with $100.

    I got Pavy a job with an engineering firm and he brought his first paycheck from $800 to $80k within a month betting table tennis and women's shotputting then tried to get hired back and we said no thanks. Great worker but he really broke our trust.

    Happened to me at least 20 or more times in my life. Run something up * 10 or more then go on tilt when guys miss fts then give up a 3 pointer at the buzzer

    That really sux !! I had never used Live betting before and the first 5 or 6 bets hit! Im thinking man this is easy money and I started making more bold bets and went on a losing streak!! Had a nice 2.5 month grind winning at a good rate for me!! Then in basically 3 weeks lost it all!!

    A friend of mine ran up a $100 deposit to 30k playing BJ in one night. That same night he proceeded to dump it all back and the sickest part was he actually deposited another $100 after losing that 30K.

    In 1997 I won close to $65k and was up another 35k roughly in 1998. I put $250k on them to beat Utah, most of it borrowed from a dominatrix.

    She turned me into a slave in a sex dungeon for the next five years to pay off the debt. It was only a slave to women as she respected my sexuality but many of them were very obese and angry people many of whom were into very hard pegging games.

    Seven surgeries later for multiple wounds I'm still here, but my body, particularly my anus, will never be the same.

    Probably the worst thing that could happen to him. He'll be chasing that dragon forever.

    I agree with you but where does a guy call it?

    If you cash at 500 you would never get to 3000.

    I think that's a good point!! Maybe set a stop point when I start losing. Say half so if we have reached $3000 its time to cash out if you drop to $1500. Start this after you reach $1000

    That is a good solid plan. The immediate gratification at a brick and mortar is one variable to consider.

    Long ago that type of thing happened to me in real life in a casino...But never on the internet. I only play sports here and have never been a big winner. I deposited $200 with W.Hill now Caesars back when they first opened. I now have it up to just under 3k. My goal is to get it to 10K., which may take more than a year with my betting size....I don't play there every day.
    At different stages in life we see money differently..At least for me. Loosing 3k would not be a big deal, but 10k would now.
