Is Bookmaker grading anything right now? I won on the Cactus Tour yesterday and now Wells Bayou at the Louisiana Derby and everything is just sitting there pending.

Who places bets that they don't hope happen? It does not matter how you explain it

You're a scumbag

next time don't get angry at posts while trying to profit off of other people's deaths ok?

Re: Low-Content Forum Chatter Thread (Current)

A couple of weeks ago I sold a bunch of stock. The market is down about 12% since. Does that make me a scumbag?

I would much rather the world return to normal and have sports to profit off of and have my job and you know, like not have people suffering from this crisis.

But I guess I profited off of it and am a scumbag.

Obviously. Even non-gamblers regularly take out insurance, bets they are of course rooting against. And of course for advantage sports bettors it's routine to make +EG hedges and still have some exposure on the original side, i.e. you're hoping your hedge loses (which is the exact situation here). lvr is just an idiot, obviously.

I bet Trump would win the last election because of the math, even though I didn't want him to win. Separate desire from EV.

Re: Low-Content Forum Chatter Thread (Current)

Ivr as recently as a week ago was denying that a problem with Covid19 even existed. Now all of a sudden he's a preaching everyone morals.
Ivr, I've got some news for you, you're credibility is shot.

He never had any credibility in the first place

lvr is just a sad bitter troll who serves no purpose other than to try and insult/attack pretty much everyone who posts here. He's never made any posts of value here

Re: Low-Content Forum Chatter Thread (Current)

I'm still new here myself. And admittedly not being what you'd call an advantage player, I would be the last one to try to insult anyone here in any way, but yeah, I haven't seen one single post of his that has any value.
He's just a troll.

In honor of him lets figure out this russkie 3x3 bball, bet online have 500 limit with parlays.

I assume its because there is no other sports to bet on but is cs-go & other e-sports this lucrative usually in regards to limits and offerings?

Re: Low-Content Forum Chatter Thread (Current)

so with the bill that passed if ur only income is sports betting I think you may be able to claim unemployment and get the 600 additional credit or whatever until sports are back. Tilted im not getting free 1200 though.
