Hellmuth Hype

Big Crowds at Colossus

WSOP Sets Record
The Colossus was exactly what officials at the World Series of Poker imagined – unreal! A field of 22,373, making it the largest live poker tournament ever, was topped by 20-something Cord Garcia. Congrats. Talk about a resume topper.

Did you know?

Tidbits
Michael Wang, winner of Event #2, has a degree in biology from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.
“I’m still trying to process it. This is the most prestigious prize in poker. This is the best thing in the game that’s ever happened to me. It’s going to take some time for this to sink in.”

Robert Mizrachi wins 3rd WSOP Bracelet

Mizrachi Mashes

Wins his 3rd bracelet in Event #3, $1,500, Omaha 8 or Better. In 2007, he captured the world championship of Pot Limit Omaha and $769,000. In 2014, he won gold in the $1,500 Dealers Choice 6-Handed event.
Did you know? Robert’s brother, Michael, owns three WSOP bracelets & two WPT titles. He won the $50k Players Championship in back-to-back years.

Fun Facts
Christian Pham, a Minnesota poker pro, accidentally signed up for the wrong event ($1,500 No Limit Deuce-to-7) and ended up winning it. Pham previously won a the WSOP circuit main event at Caesars Palace in 2013. Thinking he was signing up for the next day’s NLHE event, Pham was stunned to learn he was playing Kansas City Lowball, a form of poker he had never played before:

Kansas City What?
“They had started dealing already, so I couldn’t do anything. If they had not started dealing, I would have told the floorman and asked to be unregistered.”
– Christian Pham

Shocker in 5k
Jeffrey Tomlinson, a 51 year old football coach from Florida, upset a stacked field in Event #25.
“I don’t have any fear. I mean, I’m here to play my game. It doesn’t mean I’ll win ten gold bracelets, but from the moment I sat down I knew I could win.”

Twin Towers?
In Event #24, Arash Ghaneian was being cheered on by his wife, soon expecting twins. Good start to the family, Ghaneian won the event, his first gold bracelet and $240,000.

7 Year Itch?
Seven years after his first gold bracelet, Phil Galfond picked up his 2nd in the world championship of Kansas City lowball single draw defeating Nick Schulman, a two-time winner of this very event, heads-up. It was his 15th career cash, bringing is WSOP earnings above the $2 million mark.

Italy to the Max!
Max Pescatori became the first Italian to win three gold bracelets, taking down the $1,500 Razz for $156,000.

12 Years Later
Keith Lehr needed just 24 hands to beat Paul Volpe in the final of the $10k heads-up world championship. It’s his 2nd bracelet. His first? Twelve years ago in pot limit hold’em.

James Woods
The actor, who co-starred in the movie Casino, made his first and second ever WSOP final tables in 2015. He is widely regarded as a pretty good poker player.

Back-to-Back
Tuan Le won the $10,000 Deuce-to-Seven triple draw world championship, becoming the first player since 2009 to win the same WSOP event in consecutive years.

Running Good?
After min-cashing in the Colossus, Germany’s Paul Michaelis took down Event #8 for his first bracelet and close to $200,000.

Poker Quotes
“I was running insane basically. I had a straight flush against a nut flush, I had a couple sets. My bluffs worked out. Everything worked perfectly actually,”
– Paul Michaelis

Fast and Furious?
A total of 1,496 runners signed up for the WSOP’s newest event, the $1,000 Hyper Hold’em, which only took two days to complete. Won by Minnesota’s John Reading, it featured 20 minute blind levels. The final table only last one hour and forty-five minutes of actual playing time.

Shaun Deeb Wins Event #15
“This was one of the toughest final tables I’ve ever played against. This was the second time I’ve made the final in this $10K PLHE event, and to come out on top against these caliber of players was just great. It was really special to get this against Paul (Volpe), because we play together all the time. I know he wanted to win, but to get my first against him was just amazing the way it all happened.”
– Shaun Deeb

One to Israel
Idan Raviv became the first Israeli to win WSOP gold by taking down Event #12, the $1,500 6-Max. This just a year after finishing 22nd in the main event.

Bye to ‘The Riv’

The Riviera has ended its 60 year run on the Las Vegas strip. The legendary casino, which was the backdrop for several big movies, Casino, Ocean’s 11 and The Hangover, has been bought by the city for $180 million. City officials plan on converting the space and using it for its $2.3 billion dollar convention centre project.

Did you know?
The ‘Riv’ had over 2,100 rooms and the casino had 110,000 sq ft (10,000 m2) of gaming space.

Bingo Anyone?

The Riviera had one of the largest bingo rooms in Las Vegas, and was voted the ‘Best Bingo Room’ by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Bryan Micon Charged for Operating Illegal Gaming Operation
The Nevada-based poker pro is accused by the state of running an unlicensed internet gaming platform, Seals with Clubs, misconduct that carries a potential prison term of 10 years and a five-figure fine.

“I maintain that I have committed no wrongdoing.” Micon says. He’s being represented by David Chesnoff, who’s defended well-known poker players Phil Ivey, Paul Phua and Dan Bilzerian in the past.

“Mr. Micon maintains his innocence and we’re looking forward to litigating on what appears to be a case of first impression. We are going to advise our client that he’s been charged in Las Vegas and what his legal obligations are.”
– David Chesnoff, to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Erik Seidel, Best Ever?

Erik Seidel topped a record field of 59 entries in the 2015 €100,000 buy-in EPT grand final Super High Roller event. It’s his 28th career title, good enough for more than €2.2 million. Seidel is 55, a member of the Poker Hall of Fame, and has won more than $22 million lifetime. Oh yes, he’s got 8 WSOP titles as well. High Roller baby!

Tribute

Wynn on Online Gaming

Interviewed on the Nevada political program “Ralston Reports”, billionaire casino owner Steve Wynn said he is still against real-money poker games on the internet.
“I believe that Internet gaming is not going to happen in any way that is meaningful for Las Vegas. I don’t think it has any chance of getting through the House of Representatives, and even if it did, it would at the behest, at the encouragement, of the state lottery boards who want to go into that business. I am not going to get into [online gaming]. We’ll get blamed if anything goes wrong.”

Rudy at the Poker Table?
Actor Sean Astin’s been in numerous films and been in front of the camera too many times to count, but this week in Monte Carlo the Lord of the RingsRudy, and The Goonies star has made his way to the French Riviera to play on the thrilling Shark Cage poker show.
$100 Bills NOT Allowed
The 2015 World Series of Poker will not allow $100 bills to be in play at cash game tables. The WSOP posted the announcement on twitter:
“We believe this decision best aligns our guest experience to stay up to date with evolving industry standards and ensure our operations can deliver great experiences consistently. It is important to note that this new poker cash game policy has no impact on any poker tournament we offer, as those have always been run exclusively with non-value tournament poker chips.”
Players will exchange cash at the cage or via a chip runner during the Series.

Tidbit: I met him at the Poker Pro Classic in Quebec and he was a class act…was actually at my table and he put me all-in with only 8 big blinds left…I had Ace Queen, on a queen high, two heart board, and I folded. He said I should have called but admitted he had KINGS and told me it was  good fold.  Says because of stack sizes the right play was to call. Live and learn.

Verbal Poker Tells

Zachary Elwood’s 2nd book explains the verbal pattern at the poker table in three points:
* Early hand talking, when the pot is small, will mostly come from players with weaker hands.
* Later hand talking from non-aggressive players (i.e., callers & checkers), will also tend to indicate weaker hands.
* Later hand talking from players making significant bets, when the pot is larger, will tend to indicate stronger hands.

Poker Quotes

“The first time I walked into Binion’s in 2003, I took one look around the room at the cast of characters and realized this job was going to be everything I’d ever dreamt of,. I swear, I asked myself, ‘Where has this been all my life?’ Then, after I watched the first show before it aired, I was so impressed at the gritty, real-life gambling feel these new producers had given it, it was just unbelievable.”

Norman Chad on living the poker dream.

German Pro Marquis Gruissem on Charity

“After I had player poker nonstop for four or five years I got the point where my motivation got lost and it got boring. I thought, ‘Why am I doing this? I have a little bit of money in the bank, but why else am I doing this?’ That sucks. So I was thinking about what to do and I decided that I should try to be an effective altruist, somebody who thinks how he can help other people most effectively. I came to the conclusion that the thing I could do best right now is playing poker, that’s my skill. So if I give a 10 percent piece of my earnings to charity, the better I play the more money I can make and the more impact I can have. So that is a big motivation for me, when playing poker isn’t always fun, I get back on track and stay motivated through that.”

Duhamel and PokerStars Part Ways

2010 world champion Jonathan Duhamel is no longer a sponsored team pro at PokerStars, the website announcing in April, 2015. The Canadian’s departure follows 2009 world champ Joe Cada being cut from the roster in 2014, and is just another in a long list of pros leaving the site. Can you say ‘Black Friday’? Since the US justice Department cracked down on online gaming in April, 2011, poker advertising dollars have vanished leading to a severe drop in poker television.

Alex Jacob Jeopardy

6-day total of more than $149,000, this guys good.  @whoisalexjacob on twitter. He is using game theory, sleecting the $1000 or $800 clues first searching out Daily Doubles. When he finds one, he makes large bets to create a big lead or small ones to shut his opponents out. It’s working.  Jacob is a very good poker player, who had several big scores at the height of the poker boom. He is a trader now.

Check out this old clip from Jeopardy, when the “POKER” category was played very last, lol.

Viktor Blom 

Poker pro Viktor “Isildur1” Blom scooped $385,000 in winnings over the past week, one of the top earners says HighstakesDB. He is still down roughly $315,000 this year on Full Tilt, after logging more than 38,000 hands. He’s lost an average of $8.29 per hand played.

Tiger’s Back

Did you see Tiger Woods at the masters? Played pretty good.  Did you know? The 14 time major winner frequently plays Blackjack at $25,000 per hand with a $1 million limit at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Seems he does okay too, no scandals reported. Woods also devotes his gambling interests to a good cause. In 2013, he hosted a charity poker event, “Tiger’s Poker Night” at the Mandalay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The likes of Phil Ivey, Kid Rock, Mark Cuban, Mekhi Phifer, Doyle Brunson, Chris Paul, Daniel Negreanu, and Mike Sexton all showed to pay the $10,000 entry fee.

Baseball Betting Scandal

Baseball, above all other sports, is particularly sensitive to gambling controversies. Flashback to the 1919 Chicago World Series, which still stands as the most notorious sports gambling moment of all time. The scandal involved eight White Sox players including superstars who received a total of $100,000 to intentionally lose the Fall Class. Although, a grand jury found all players innocent, they were all banned from baseball, a ban still in effect to this day. As Jackson departed from the Grand Jury room, a small boy clutched at his sleeve and tagged along after him.

“Say it ain’t so, Joe,” he pleaded. “Say it ain’t so.”
“Yes kid, I’m afraid it is,” Jackson replied.
“Well, I never would’ve thought it,” the boy said.

– from the Chicago Herald and Examiner, September 30, 1920

High Roller Trend?

The high roller trend began in 2006 when the Aussie Millions launched its $100,000 No Limit Holdem Challenge (actual buy in is $100,500, including the $500 entry fee), at the time billed as the highest buy-in of any poker tournament in history.
Structure:
* Players start with 100,000 chips, a comparatively larger amount compared to both the Aussie Millions and WSOP Main Events.
Betting is pot limit preflop and no limit afterwards.
* Players are allowed only 30 seconds to act on their hands. At the start of the tournament, each player is given three extensions of 30 seconds each for use during the tournament.
* The $100,000 Challenge was first played in 2006, with 10 entrants. Eighteen entered the Challenge in 2007, 25 in 2008, and 24 in 2010. In 2011, organizers introduced a Super High Roller event featuring a $250,000 buy-in.

The Blocker Bet

What Is It? A bet from out of position designed to control the size of the pot, freeze your opponent, and possibly get a cheaper showdown.

Poker Quotes

“I have never played one hand of no limit cash in my life. I play a lot of mixed games. Other than Dan Heimiller, I think I play more tournaments than anyone. I’d be out of my league here. There are a lot of great no limit hold’em players here, It’s not my realm. I liked mixed cash games.”

Greatest WSOP Blow-Up EVER!

You guessed it, the ‘Poker Brat’ loses his cool with fireman Jim Pittman, an amatuer poker player who got more than he bargained for at the 2005 WSOP. Great tv clip. Wow, does Phil go off, “the guy can’t even spell poker.”

 

Poker Hall of Fame

The Brat’s in there…and as of 2013, 46 members have been inducted. Did you know? The Poker Hall of Fame was founded in 1979 by Benny Binion, owner of the Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas.  When Harrah’s Entertainment, now known as Caesars Entertainment, acquired the rights to the WSOP in 2004, it also assumed ownership of the Poker Hall of Fame.

Hanson’s Online Woes

Gus Hansen, a multiple winner on the World Poker Tour, is the worst loser in the history of online poker.  He is down close to $20 million online alone. $20 million!  He recently admitted that perhaps the games has passed him by and he needs to work harder.

Did you know?

Dan Lubin, a former computer analyst, moved to Las Vegas to enjoy his retirement as a dealer when he invented the game EZ Pai Gow Poker, which was an instant hit with both players and casino management.  He is no longer retired; he was hired as Manager of Table Games Development by Galaxy Gaming.

Team Blackjack

Al Francesco, the Godfather of team blackjack, once won $50,000 playing $100 limit blackjack after spotting a dealer who was inadvertently bending the cards.  Francesco is in the Blackjack Hall of Fame and is credited for teaching fellow Hall of Famer Ken Uston how to play the game.  Uston went on to write The Big Player, effectively exposing all of the team’s and Francesca’s secrets to the public and, more importantly, the casinos.

Padraig Parkinson Q&A, Ultimate Slow Roll, Poker Funnies & the HRR T-Shirt

Hey High Rollers, great interview with Irish legend Padraig Parkinson today, well actually at midnight last night our time, 6 a.m. his time in Paris, but edited today and on the website now at www.highrollerradio.net (give it a few minutes to load.) Padraig was 3rd at the 1999 main event, won Late Night Poker across the pond, which made him a household name in the UK, and he’s got a new book out, Rebel Without a Pause, and believe me you’ll want to pick yourself up a copy. He is a funny guy and dynamic storyteller; we spoke about the passing of Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliot, the Irish Open and that classic slow roll gone wrong. What was the German thinking? Slow rolling the Grandfather of Irish Poker Donnacha O’Dea, at the final table no less. He got what he deserved.  If you haven’t seen it yet, here is the commentators reaction, obviously Irish and fans of O’Dea:

Crazy! “Justice is done! Justice is done.!” Padraig has heard one possible reason for the slow roll, but you have to listen to the interview, Part 2, at www.highrollerradio.net

Luck of the Irish?

Stable boy turned millionaire.  In March 2012, 29-year-old Irishman Conor Murphy placed the luckiest bet of his life at Cheltenham.  He wagered $75 on all five of his boss’s horses to win and, guess what, they did.  Murphy scooped a stunning pot of $1.5 million in the accumulator.

Incredible!  Jockey Frankie Dettori left bookmakers with their jaws dropped in 1996 when he won all seven races at the Ascot Festival in the United Kingdom at odds of 25,000-to-1.  Darren Yeats placed a £59 ($89) accumulator bet on all of Dettori’s races and it paid off, big time.  Yeats took home £550,000 ($830,000) richer.

Scotty Nguyen Baby! (Pronounced ‘winn’)

•  5 WSOP bracelets
•  1998 World Champ
•  1 World Poker Tour title
•  8 final tables on the WPT

Did you know?

Mike ‘The Mouth’ Matusow, one of the best players on the planet, wrote in his book, Check Raising the Devil, that a few days before the 1998 Main Event had a dream, which vividly depicted Scotty Nguyen as the Champion.  Despite his friends and mother’s objection, Matusow decided to opt out of the tournament and instead give his entry fee to Scotty for 33 per cent of any prize money.  One week later, Nguyen became World Champion and ‘The Mouth’ was $333,333 richer – his share of the $1 million payday.

Tidbit:  One day after the 1998 World Championship, Scotty Nguyen’s brother was killed in a car accident back home in Vietnam.  To this day, Nguyen does not wear his Main Event gold bracelet.

A Putt for his Life?

Once, during a discussion about golf, Doyle Brunson said that if he had to pick one guy to make a 10-foot putt for his life it would be Puggy Pearson.  Wow.  Not Nicklaus, nor Palmer, nor Watson.  Puggy Pearson! “He’s the greatest pressure putter I’ve ever seen,” Brunson said.

Akio Kashiwagi

Biggest Gambler in the World? At one time, in 1992, yes he was! This Japanese property developer liked to play baccarat and holds the world record for the biggest loss EVER playing that game – a whopping $10 million in one session at the Trump Casino.  Soon afterwards, he was stabbed to death outside his home.

WSOP Bracelet Winner

Mike Gorodinsky WSOP Bracelet Winner

“I can only speak on hearsay since I actually haven’t played a single hand of online poker since Black Friday, but just the simple lack of action at $10-$20 and higher for the big bet games should serve as a pretty good indicator that things have dried up significantly. The reality is that the sheer volume of training content and advanced playing tools out there is going to inherently toughen up your average poker player. The losing players then wind up losing faster and the weak professionals don’t really seem to have the desire to improve their game while taking any sort of equity loss against better regulars. So the games just don’t go the way that they used to.”
– Mike Gorodinsky (Card Player magazine April 2015)

The Devilfish Passes Away at 61

The poker world has lost a true High Roller and legend of the game. Dave Ulliott passed away at the age of 61 after losing a battle with cancer. WSOP bracelet winner, WPT winner and Late Night Poker winner. We pay tribute: MORE

5 Poker Thoughts

1) Why do players blame the dealer? Come on guys and gals; I mean, your bad play or misfortune is not the dealer’s fault. Is it?
2) Why is it when you have pocket Kings an Ace always hits the flop?
3) Why do players say ‘Sorry’ when they put a Bad Beat on someone in the pot? If they were truly sorry they’d give their opponent his or her money back.
4) Why do so-called ‘good’ players openly criticize and disrespect an opponent when that player gets lucky and beats them in a pot? Good players should say, “Nice Hand,” keep their ‘fish’ happy AND at the table, knowing they’ll win in the long run. Don’t scare away the Fish folks!
5) Don’t you hate it when a smart-ass opponent says “I knew you had that!” AFTER he sees your cards.

What’s in a Name?

One of the best players on the planet, this Canadian is a double bracelet winner at the World Series of Poker, a former professional hockey player and a guy known as FBT, for Full Blown Tilt.
“A long time buddy, who’s kind of a mentor to me, gave it to me but not so much for the poker table. I’m always antsy, my head’s always spinning. You know, ‘What’s going on over here?’ or ‘Let’s go there.’ He started calling me Full Blown Tilt. It went to FBT and the rest is history. When I first started on the circuit people just knew me as FBT, they ddn’t even know I was Greg Mueller. It’s stuck with me for a long time.”

Wild Bill Hickok
He’s one of three Poker Hall of Famers to die while playing poker (along with Tom Abdo and Jack Straus.)
 

Did you know?

– Felton McCorquodal, who was elected into the Poker Hall of Fame in 1979, is credited with introducing the game of Texas Hold’em to Las Vegas in 1963.

– After writing a book on the game of Whist, the phrase “according to Hoyle” became synonymous in card games with following the rules. Edmund Hoyle was inducted into Poker’s Hall of Fame in 1979.

Poker Hall of Fame



– Jack Strauss icknamed ‘Treetop’, his world championship victory in 1982 is considered to be one of the greatest comebacks in poker history. At one point, Straus had one chip remaining and somehow managed to win the title, coining the phrase “A chip and a chair”, meaning that as long as a player hasn’t been eliminated from the tournament, he or she still has a chance.
–  Berry Johnston holds the record for consecutive years cashing at the World Series of Poker – 29.  He cashed in at least one event every year from 1982-2010.
– Henry Orenstein is the patent holder of poker’s hole cam, which allows audiences to see player’s hole cards. At the time of his induction into Poker’s Hall of Fame, he was a producer of the Poker Superstars Invitational Tournament and High Stakes Poker.

Gambling History

In the early1850’s, Portsmouth Square, the center of the City by the Bay, featured the Parker House, originally built by its owner, Robert A. Parker, as a hotel, but it was quickly converted into a casino as the gambling craze swept San Francisco. A large room downstairs contained three tables for faro, two for monte, one for roulette and a seventh for any other game desired. Professional gamblers paid $10,000 a month for the privilege of conducting their games in this room. A smaller room behind the bar went for $3,500 a month. Jack Gamble, an appropriately named sporting man, leased the entire second floor for $60,000 and outfitted all the rooms for games of chance. It was estimated that at the peak of the California Gold Rush upward of half a million dollars was stacked on the tables of the Parker House on any given day.

Is the EPT the Hardest Tour to Win On?

“To win an EPT is always something very big. These are the tournaments with the toughest fields in the world, and therefore the most difficult to win. In the aftermath of that triumph, my ambition is to win another major title to consolidate my leadership in the French poker rankings and prove to the entire poker community that I haven’t just been lucky — that Malta has not been just an episode.”

– Jean Montury, EPT Malta Winner

“I believe in poker the way I believe in the American Dream. Poker is good for you. It enriches the soul, sharpens the intellect, heals the spirit, and — when played well, nourishes the wallet.”

– Lou Krieger

Online/VLT Randomness

In slot machines and VLTs, random results are produced by a specialized computer chip called a random number generator (RNG). The RNG’s job is to cycle continuously through millions of numbers at several thousand numbers a second. When a player pushes the “spin” or “deal” button, the number that was available on the RNG at that split second is selected. Pushing the button a thousandth of a second earlier or later would result in a completely different outcome. The RNG runs continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even when no one is playing.

Erick Lindgren is being Sued

Yes, in federal court for $2.5 million. The debt dates back to Lindgren’s days as a Full Tilt Poker sponsored player when the company. PokerStars has since acquired FTP and its assets. Most of the $2.5 million comes from FTP erroneously wiring an extra $2 million into Lindgren’s bank account, on top of the $2 million he was taking as compensation from the company. The rest comes in the form of a loan to Lindgren.

Brad Pitt Freeroll

The actor hosted a very short poker game where he gave his chauffeur, and others, a $25,000 freeroll. If Pitt lost, he would fork over $25,000 to the winner, but if he won, he could make his opponents perform a task of his choosing. Seems they were playing flips, which involves everyone being dealt two cards and then just running out the flop, turn and river without any betting.
After the hand played out, Pitt “shrugged his shoulders and mucked his hand.” His driver won. It’s believed Pitt didn’t even bother seeing if he had won.

Phil Ivey is Good, Right?

The American poker superstar has won his 3rd Aussie Millions Super High Roller event in four years. Wow. Ivey wins $2.2 million AUD, ($1,713,285 USD), records his 26th tournament title, and pushes his career earnings to a whopping $22.7 million.

Did you know? Ivey’s top three poker tournament paydays have now all come from wins in this event, with over $7.3 million in earnings coming from his 2012, 2014 and 2015 title runs.

Poker in Mainstream?

1972 world champion, Amarillo Slim, parlayed his title and personality into national publicity tour that led to 11 appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Slim was also featured on 60 Minutes.

Giants Score Safety

Real estate man and huge Giants fan Jonah Rechnitz picked a popular prop bet – first score – using an unpopular choice –  safety. Well, the Giants forced Tom Brady into an intentional grounding from his own end zone to put New York up 2-0 to begin Super Bowl XLVI. Rechnitz dropped $1,000 on the ticket to net $50,000 at 50-to-1 odds and promptly vowed to give away all of that cash to charity.
Phil Michelson
Call it a hunch. In 2000, Phil Michelson wagered a cool $20,000 on the Ravens to win it all – before the season started. Baltimore was a 22-to-1 longshot to capture the Vince Lombardi trophy, but they did! 34-7 over the Giants. ‘Lefty’ collected $560,000. That’s like making a 60-footer for birdie.
Mr. Las Vegas Scores
In 1989, Bob Stupak, better known as ‘Mr. Las Vegas’, wagered $1 million on the underdog Bengals (-7) against the 49’ers. Cincinnati may have lost, but thanks to the cover, Stupak did not. (Always the pro, rumor has it Stupak hedged at halftime with a smaller bet on the Niners.)
The 2nd biggest upset in Super Bowl history was in 2002, when the Patriots beat the Rams. That game netted the MGM Resorts Race & Sports Book $4.8 million.
“The gambling industry is willing to devise anything to bring more money their way in profits. Prop betting is probably very popular because gamblers seek frequent and immediate action and gratification.”
– Bruce SvarePsychology Professor on prop betting.
The bookmaker is simply a middle-man who operates on a small profit margin and, ideally, he likes to see half the money wagered on one team and half on the other because if he can he will be assured a profit. If too much of the money goes on one team, the bookmaker will move the line or point-spread to encourage bets on the other team in an effort to balance his book. The person you are attempting to beat is the oddsmaker and his views on each team’s chances.
Like Father, Like Son?
Legendary gambler and prop betting specialist Titanic Thompson was honored at the first World Series of Poker in 1970. He had made gambling trips with his eldest son Tommy for many years, but after he died Tommy, a skilled, successful gambler in his own right, gave up a life of making bets for a church ministry. He successfully counsels prisoners and preaches to convince others to stay away from gambling.
