Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

Yes, 5dimes has open slot parlay for pretty much everything, including tennis. Had a friend that asked me if he should close out his 8 game parlay(7 of which he won) on something like a -5000 Federer tennis match. I tried to explain to him that that would be a very -EV move, but sure go ahead. He ended up closing it out on NE Patriots vs Den Broncos in the playoff game: it was like NE Patriot +30pts -100000. LOL.

Not really. He gave up the value of receiving +7500(est.) on a -110 play.

opening an account on 5dimes involves no hoops imo. took me about 5 minutes.

and microbob is a fine mod. no idea what all the fuss is about

As for this nonsense...no one really cares what you think at all. Mike ski even moreso (you figure out if pinnacle is giving away free money yet bud?)

Just shut up, collect your 1k in a few weeks and slowly give it back to the pool following brianl's picks.
You have to be a baller now to get rooms at Foxwoods? LMAO... Thats funny, figuring I bet 50 dollars per hand every once in a while playing blackjack and they hook me up with rooms every month.. But yeah, you are a baller.

Okay.. this is stupid.

Tennis is a HUGE market outside of North America... 2nd biggest sport outside of soccer. The books don't grossly miss lines... They get pounded way before 5dimes puts the lines up if it was grossly off.

But on that note... you should create a tennis thread. I love the game more then I love to bet on, and its always nice to hear others opinions on tennis matches. Covers and SBR both have very solid tennis forums as well.... Just be careful posting your opinion on here, as Iowa! will rip your every move because you won't be getting the right price at 5dimes.

If not Chronic can always hire you to go to looking for Poogs since you love to threaten people in or around casino surroundings.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

best situation would be if poogs went to pick up the money from brianl in his dodge ram, brianl and him drive to the ATM and they get sucked up into a tornado

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

This place would suck without the anecdotes.

as for p0ogs , I think he is good for it, but given how the HS thread was scammed for 60k+ from someone that was deemed reputable and seeing other respected posters vanish due to being broke after black friday and the chance that me or him may somehow may get sucked by a tornado , it is always better to be safe than sorry.

With the terms of our bet, it is a bit shady that he is taking this long to escrow and it does look like there is a small chance of a freeroll. But I usually give people the benefit of the doubt , so meh

Wiper, I changed my mind because chronic was being strange and rude and I wanted nothing to do with him. Basically, I changed my mind because moving money back and forth with him did not strike me as a good idea.

Haha. You found it a week ago and shipped two days ago? But you have problems with poogs for taking a little longer? If I understand your post correctly, it took you 5 days to do so but you are bothered by him taking 7 days? Please tell me I'm misunderstanding that becasue if not that's pretty bad.

Lol, why comment when you don't know the full story?
I found s1 a week ago, I kept pm ing poogs to see if he was ok with the escrow who seemed like a no-brainer
as soon as poogs said yes. The escrower gave me the green light to ship and I shipped

Fwiw, poogs pmed and we are good.

But yeah, thanks for reiterating what I said earlier

Major US banks trust Poogs enough to have lent him 100K+ over the last year so he could buy an assortment of motor vehicles so I wouldn't be too worried about him stiffing you for 1K.

Lol, I may have pm'ed him 2-3 times
So saying "kept" may have been an exaggeration
but I guess po0gs was busy etc..
I pmed him more than once because I'd rather be safe than sorry being that I have been freerolled on here before. Nothing against poogs or anythings just the way it is. I know he was good for it

Why so curious Bob?
You don't have anything better to do on a Friday night?

If he's going to yap away publicly about the whole thing then others can ask questions too. If he wants people to butt out then don't use the public forums to continually bring it up.

Again.... the bank gave me a $250k loan to buy my house last year... what exactly does that prove? That my girlfriend and I have a combined good income and great credit? Great...it doesn't mean that I have good character and wont screw someone on a forum. It just means I have money and it doesn't say how
