Sports have been bad to me too. I have had many wtf moments that could have put me up if only.

One time I was betting a good chunk, at least for me, on college football, giving up 19 1/2. My team was up 13 on about their own 20 with maybe a minute left. Out of nowhere they break a run through the middle and he goes all the way in for the touchdown, I am pumped,,, celebrating... I cant believe it. Then I see that they are lining up to go for two. WTF! There is little time left, the only possible reason I can think that they would go for two is because they somehow know that I am giving up 19 1/2. Of course the QB throws a pass way out of the end zone and I lose the bet by 1/2 a point and I go from from expecting to lose, to incredibly excited, to very dazed in no time flat. I still bet on the games every now and then though.

I still have time to end up overall.

Thanks.

I wish more people would share their history. Just like backing pool players it can be for entertainment purposes.

It's fun to hear the stories and how people have done.

That has pretty much been my experience with sports betting too !..However, pool is another story entirely...I'm sure I have gambled several million at pool over the years, and according to my records, I am about $37.50 ahead,..But, I was always a trusting soul, so I got 'stiffed', about every other play !

PS..So that makes me about half a million loser !

That is funny!


And that is a lot of action. I would have liked to have sweat some of it... I have no doubt that it was entertaining.

Pool up lifetime a good 30k. I've had about 6 customers pay the bulk of that. Action now is scarce. Had to find anybody who will go off.

Blackjack down a few thousand....can't win in that game in the long run.

I have never really gambled on anything other then pool. I used to go to the track with friends all the time socially and never make a bet.

Pool since I was hustler so to speak, I pretty much won all the time and over the years it is a considerable amount. I would at home however actually gamble since I know everybody.

In most cases I pretty much always had the worst of it. I would make what I knew were bad games and try to out run the nuts. Surprisingly I doubt I am that far behind but I am sure I am a loser overall at home.

In my mind I just wrote it off as the cost of a hobby. I know I was a sucker at times but I don't think of it a a waste, it toughens you up. Plus you can always get a game when you make it fair.

I probably have lost more dinners, than I've won cash.

A lot of pool players are so broke, they just want a good meal

HOOT! I went to Reno on my 21st birthday with a buddy who claimed to have a "system". I lost every dime I had. Drove home on my dad's "emergency only" gas card...and had a lot of thinking to do on that long drive. I consider it an expensive education. So, that's how much I'm down. Haven't gambled since.

A funny aside...still in touch with that buddy. He's still scuffling, looking for that big score. I'm retired, living quite comfortably after working, saving, and investing.

I'm also comfortably retired after working, saving, and investing.
I'm a high school drop out but I never went after things that sounded too good or I couldn't afford. I also had very strict rules for gambling so I never went broke.
The only loss I took that pissed me off was in a bar. I agreed to play some $100 8 ball.
I lost the 1st game, paid the man, racked the balls, looked up and the guy was gone

I find that I can do a lot of things that I didn't know how to do before I started.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

Bleeder- def. - a highly accomplished pool player/gambler that is amazingly tough for the cash & seldom books a loser due to aforementioned skills & knowledge of how to match up, BUT tends to take winnings made on his own skill and wagers on sports events he has no control over and seldom winning as his skills at picking a winner at a sports book seems inversely proportional to his skills of booking his pool match ups.

Source-My old man as I watched him collect $ on a match he just won on the table and then hand his winnings to Max the book, a fixture in my old mans hall when I was a kid. When I asked him why he gave Max his pool winnings he looked at me stoically and said, "NFL, I'm a bleeder".
