    These were the parameters he set

    Not allowed to play offshore
    No runners in other states
    Youíre only income is sports betting

    He said under 10 people in the whole state of Nevada are capable of accomplishing this

    He went on to say most states itís even less than 10

    I guess this means I know all 10 of those guys.

    Clown show thread Gold.

    The truth is, I'm the only pro gambler you know Gold.

    And there are many of us out there across the entire world. Some of us work together.

    Did I mention clown show thread?

    Every clown that thinks they can do it has like other income streams

    I never met a gambler that had any money in my life but I met hard-working people that have everything and never gamble and thatís tons and tons and tons of people

    Like I said Gold, you are just going to have to come to the realization that you simply have not met and don't know any pro gamblers.

    Except me.

    It's ok Gold, SBR has always been resigned to "it's impossible to win" because the vast majority can't.

    You don't know what you don't know.

    And you clearly don't know.

    Depends on definition of "living". 40-50k a year after taxes on $3k unit isn't impossible. $120k on $500 is another story...

    There is some truth to that. Having a presence in Vegas and being on the rolodex of book managers will help.

    Those of us that have been in and built a business and made contacts over the last few decades have been ahead of these controls.

    The biggest difference over the last few years is that you don't just need Vegas, there are other areas.

    Like NJ.

    The main hub hasn't shifted, it has grown. If you understand it that way, then you will be able to navigate the risk management.

    If you are smart and disciplined you can pickup a few units a month. Variance means you will have runs where you are on top of the World and others where you want to crawl into a dark hole and die. There are far easier ways to make a decent living.

    This is not new at all, this has been happening for a very long time.

    You can use this to your advantage. I start, and only start, to get into this in the video I made when I talk about growing wide in sportsbetting.

    Every time I place a bet I see my license on the labtop in the back even though I refused for a long time to give players card. Then Iíd go to the kiosk manager would see me run to back to get on lab top I have no doubt what was going on that being said Iím lazy donít really like driving to casino so just stay off shore but itís funny the few bets I did place in person were fairly large and they didnít all win I was just harassed to no end to have a players card because they wanted to give me a comp ok there so full of shit

    It's the mathematics of the situation.

    I don't think very many understand that picking winners is the easy part.

    It's how the money is managed that seperates those who want to go deep in the industry from the rest.

    Exactly Al, and it can be a very hard job for those trying to get into it.

    That's why I suggested in the at video that most just make it part time, as another source of income. There's less pressure and less of a financial deadline for the bettor.

    These things are important to keep the emotions caused by financial stress from short circuiting rational thinking.

    Nobody can be a pro poker player either?. Now, if you said slots or some other crakhead-type game I might agree.

    Maybe, what Krackman is saying is that the better numbers are found offshore?

    This is complete bullshit Coach, guys like Thomorino & Vitterd told me they have been successful professionals for years.
    There's 0% chance these guys tell lies.
    So, what do you have to say about this?
