buddy I dont think YOU understand. Ive created a very unique, creative and profitable situation for myself. I realized I have an excellent combination of street and technical smarts that allows me to flourish, and again, none of it would be possible without you thremp.

Re: Negreanu Props

i thought the doc was OK, interesting to see a little bit about how he broke in. I can see where you're coming from there.

also yea - it seems to be what will be coming on the flop, getting points based on the number of cards you got right and in what order and then tallying up the winner or race to a certain mark (I would guess.)

Stick to 1% and remember your image is key

Image is definitely very important when betting on sports. For sure. *fart noise*

there are many threads in the business finance and investing forum that discuss how to get approved for a mortgage as a professional gambler

Now Im focusing on pitcher strike outs, for which I built another pretty good little model for and am doing quite well.

Been dating a girl for almost a year now and we're in love. Next step is buying a house and living with her! My condo has gone way up in value since I bought it too which is great. Not sure if I want rent it or sell it though. The biggest issue is getting a mortgage though since every time a lender sees "professional gambler" on my w-2s they act like I just took a **** on their desk. So I might need to save up like 50% down payment or something. Thats kind of the worst thing going on right now.

The Ram is getting older, almost 100k miles now, but still running great. I love this truck. I think im a dodge guy for life now.

Im kind of bored sometimes though. I need some sort of project. When I buy a house im gonna build a studio and make some music trent reznor style. I can play guitar, bass and drums, just cant sing.

None of my friends have anywhere near the amount of money or free time that I have, so I find myself alone quite often. Thank god for the girlfriend. I actually golfed alone for the first time a few weeks ago which was surprisingly fun.

So yea...things are good I have to say. How bout you?

Sounds like things are going great dude. Feel ya on the freetime compared to others. Have considered golfing alone but am too self concious (suck at golf) to pull it off. Weekdays its hard to find golf bros

Still know nothing about sportsbetting and making dr dollars. Tho might be starting to burn out a little. Well done w the gf being in love and all that is a good time.

Music project sounds pretty sweet. Not into music but always wanted to run a legit for the player type SBR as fkkkkkk them basically. But it doesn't seem viable. Have been looking into businesses but most suck and or need lots of effort. So still looking.

When will your well officially begin?

Talk me out of this 5 team parlay

slovenia, Alemania (handball)
Serbia, Francia, Australia (basketball)

I know many of you wont be familiar with handball so if you´re against one of these basketball picks speak up.

France vs Spain: Spain is gasol dependent 100%, their offense will go to **** when the french arent double teaming gasol, allowing him to pass to open 3´s. The reason the double team won be needed is: Rudy Gobert.

Serbia has had a much more consistent outcoming than croatia, and this bet is heavily based on their preformace vs the USA.

Australia is pretty straight foward.

So you agree it is the gross dollars lost/won that matters? Amazing.

re: Low-Content Forum Chatter Thread (OLD)

Can someone post a definitive timeline of hbob's gambling career/life? With his claims and the evidence against said claims. I always found him to be such a pompous ass and never understood the dick sucking ppl do with him. I've heard lots of rumors about his story being false and I'd like to see it all in one place if someone wants to
