    Seriously, that was fantastic.

    Their opinion on arb is interesting.

    Also, the entire discussion seemed to revolve around soccer. When more and more Americans start to enter that market, places like Pinnacle will be able to give out private islands as bonus' to their traders.

    I had no clue about eSports. Unreal. Truly. Will look into this more.

    Hmm, not sure. It doesn't take much to offer the props... they follow a line service, so it isn't really adding anything to their process.
