Re: Degen Stories....

Pinnacle ha allowed me to withdraw. Took out $247000 and they accepted it this morning. I have left $107000 in there for my lender friend who is degenning on the account. He's taken it from 390 to 354. Wasn't sure what to do and what he wanted from me so I just withdrew everything except what I owe him. If he busts the account I won't be paying him. Not my problem I tried to help a lot.

Basically: biggest % of my 250k debt is owed to this person and he is gambling a lot of my roll away on pinny - and makes it seem like he's only liable for some of it. So this pain is causing me a lot of grief and I do not care to bet.
Your mindset is the same.

Re: Degen Stories....

Congratulations, Snipes. Will you please let us know when you actually get the check and it clears? I am very interested in knowing that they can be trusted even with a quarter of a million like this.

Re: Degen Stories....

Snipes why would you give him access to your account? It your account and your money? He is 0% libel for any loss on your account even though he is one who lost it?

Strange that take such a risk as if he turns round and lose the lot he can always say that you never paid him back and turn on you, seems like a no win situation for you

Block access to your account asap so not get headache of him loseing AM blaming you.

It's a little complicated. I understand the concerns but the money he's given me is not in writing. Also a great friend of mine and we share accounts and bet together. Believe it or not I have given him plenty of free rolls and the interest I was paying he always took it on a sports book. He's stuck 350k since April..he's a millionaire and wants to use that money to get even. I've tried to stop and give advice but degens will degen. As long as I'm not liable anymore I don't care. When I was on this mission last week and had 50-60-200k in the account I gave him over 25k in freerolls. Not even counting that against what I owe because we have that relationship. When I walked at 390 he had 40k on his own that he built off my roll. My pinny was actually at 425k with the 7k dodger future pending. He became a bit shady when he dipped from that to 390 and then to 350 making it seem like that was me giving him a free roll..but no. I walked away at 390 and that's my number. I wouldn't even free roll my mom $1 after walking at 390 let alone a friend for $40k who I have given over 30k in free rolls (counting other times) and over $40k in interest. There's a limit. And It's a mental thing..I know if I dipped below that mark I'd tilt and bust it all.

I never asked for handouts. I asked for bailouts with massive interest and I've come through well before the loans were going to mature. I've done more than my part and I've come to this realization now because I haven't bet in a few days and am starting to value my life roll. I gotta think about the people that matter and my future.

Oh ps. Spent some of that roll on the new MacBook Pro. Felt nice.

Getting a check for 250k is going to wave a big red flag on your bank account Snipes. Hope it doesn't affect you in anyway and congratulation on getting out of the hole.

GJ Snipes. Gargantuan hit there, enough to make you realize some things, right?

Don't mess this up. You won. Keep it this time. Handle your personal business, pay off any debts and enjoy. You're a free man now.

I'm going to keep betting. Once the money comes in and my lender friend is done using my account I'll wire pinny 20k and start doing $200 singles.

Re: Degen Stories....

Snipes betting 3 figures right now would be like us playing 1 cent 2 cent poker. He's better off not betting at all. Too dangerous.

I dont think you understand how much money there is to be won by just betting small everyday compared to massive wagers that are gonna sink you or cash in large on.

There are about 5 days a year where there isnt anything to really bet on (conventional north american sports). Time to look at the big picture.

Best advice I would give to snipes is to get a job that will allow you to respect the value of money again so a $500 bet will feel like a $5000 bet. Win you're happy and lose you're not gonna feel the need to chase. You can scale down as much as you want. I know when I bet small and lose i really dont care about the money ....being wrong is what bothers me, however it did not really impact my bankroll.

Bottom line is to realize WHY you are betting. Are you betting for the rush or the thrill of victory / agony of defeat ?? or to win money??
