Guy waits til the game is over to call me and yell at me.
Asks me if i want a problem, as in: you want a visit from my muscle? (Spanish: Digame si quiere una bronca?)
That i am stealing.

The way i see it: i am paying commission for every bet i make.
Hit submit wager is accepted.

I STILL HAVE A DECISION ON THE UNDER!

Guy was seriously pissed.

As you can see he only honored one bet.
As you can see: I STILL Had A DECISION ON THE UNDER! before the game started.

I know I have a nice 7 pt middle going. I know no one likes to be hit in the front and in the back. But i still need the under.
What if the game goes over. Will i get the same call? Really doubt it.

Thing is, that this is a nice 05 account that has a lot of things (international sports). And he is kinda lay back with other stuff that benefits me a LOT. So i don't wanna let go. Just hope i can get past all this and be sailing smoothly.
Basketball hasn't even really started yet FFS.


Other day guy calls me a cheater only because i hit 3 props LOL!
He banned me from playing any prop for any amount after that.

Just because i have the same betting selection as some sharp guys that i don't even know.



just ranting


I wanna ask you guys: He is over reacting right?

Re: line fluctuations and ''street mob'' bookies

classic ethics (if you wanna call it that?) situation i debate with buddies from time to time when stuff like this pops up. generally speaking i avoid jumping on things like that, but I kinda like my guy as a buddy so it's a little different. you're def right tho, if that other play doesnt hit you aren't getting the call.

if your guy is freaking out over those play/amounts I'd say start looking for a new guy. most boogiemen know that as long as you plug up any exploitative holes (like you found) then keeping you happy is the best way to keep making money.

Unless I'm missing something, he's mad at you for beating a line move by 7 points and then turning around and middling him?

You are putting yourself in a lose/lose situation. If he's doing stuff like this over these amounts what happens when you get on a heater and beat him for 3k? He's obviously not going to pay you. So in this spot you are either 1) losing steady money to this guy over time and everything is fine, or 2) will actually wind up winning at some point and get stiffed.

You can't allow this to continue. Get rid of him and find a reliable, no-nonsense book. There are plenty of them out there, just ask around.
