If only there was a search engine where you could find Google's annual reports.



N.b. Glad I hadn't used 'surprised' or 'obv' in my market observations post. Or this one.

Re: Who are the legit top sports bettors?

So where are the professional sport bettors?

Do you have to pay taxes if you are a professional in your country?

No actually there was a lesser known but still just as good Omaha player in the late 70's named Stu Unger. Thats probably who hes referring to.

Re: Who are the legit top sports bettors?

late to the party but

(1) why did RAS go invitation only
(2) why do they merge WNBA and NFL Pre Season results together? That seems odd

Re: Who are the legit top sports bettors?

they wanted to narrow their focus on the 1% of the 1% of bettors so they made it more exclusive and raised prices

didn't know 2 i'd guess they decided to group smaller market sports together since they are ya know both smaller betting markets with limited betting opportunities. may also impact record keeping results but i'm sure that's just a coincidence

for 1: winding down maybe, who knows
for 2: keep the winning angles grouped and the breakeven/losing ones segregated would be my guess.

never had anything to do with RAS fwiw

Re: Who are the legit top sports bettors?

1) We implemented a new release system, and wanted to limit number of subscribers.

2) As part of the release system trial last year, we did WNBA/NFLx as a combo package. Ended up being just 1 WNBA play and 21 NFL, so we combined the record. They have been separate since.
