I don’t see it as a problem. But it would be a nice problem to deal with.

Comment on Feb 18th – Feb 24th -$7,881.20 by Steve Sat, 28 Feb 2015 23:33:00 +0000 Yep, you can guarantee a bet on those guys every week. Happily for me, I know this and back the day before and lay for a profit after emails are sent :)

Comment on Feb 18th – Feb 24th -$7,881.20 by Guest Sat, 28 Feb 2015 17:43:00 +0000 I have learnt a lot from GOWI. The main thing I have learnt is that backing the same teams every single week is unlikely to produce profit.

Does he just pick a few teams for outright bets and then bet on their individual matches every week? Utterly bizarre. I find it hard to believe that Derby, Brentford and Boro offer value every week.

Comment on Lenses, and why Gamblers need to be generalists by Steve Mon, 23 Feb 2015 00:41:00 +0000 This is what I have found too.
Give me a guy who has never placed a bet, doesn’t really care about sport and has some basic maths knowledge and I can turn him into a profitable gambler. He is a clean slate and has no biases.

But when you try and help someone who is either maths based or been gambling (and losing) for a while, you have to first start by getting rid of everything they know. Which is almost impossible to do. These type of guys assume they have got it all figured out and just need that one tip that will turn it all around for them.

It can be done, but the person has to be very open minded and ready to let go of things he believed to be true. It takes a very humble guy to admit they were wrong.

Comment on Lenses, and why Gamblers need to be generalists by Pokersunited Sun, 22 Feb 2015 08:38:00 +0000 Nice article Steve. I can very much relate to this topic from my coaching/tutoring experience in the poker community. As you will probably agree poker and sportsbetting are very related in a lot of ways and most agree that for poker you need even more math skills. And although it certainly helps to be good with numbers, you really don’t have to be a math geek to succeed in poker (or sports betting).

In fact, the most successful guy I coached had no math/numbers skills at all. What he did have, was crazy discipline and a very humble mind. The math guys very often went crazy when other players made terrible mistakes, they just couldn’t handle losing when making good ‘math wise’ plays. While the disciplined guy just loved seeing people doing dumb stuff, he knew that he played for enough hours he would always win against them. Math wise, he could count the outs he needed, but If I asked him for % and he usually didn’t know. He just knew some plays were the right plays without knowing the actual numbers, he learned by playing a ton of hands with good money management and being very disciplined in every possible way (making hours, know when to quit, don’t play tables you don’t have an edge (being humble!) and so on…

Another thing that helped him in getting a long time winner was thinking on the right level. When you are playing with guys who are thinking on level D (just looking at their own cards), you have to be thinking on level C (what do you think he has), while math guys very often just like to think on the highest level (what does he think, that I think, he represents or whatever form of that…), while that might works against other world class players, it doesn’t help you in winning from the weaker players.

As from my own experience in poker and sports betting, I would say that ‘soft’ skills, make up for way more then 50% of a skill set needed to be a winning poker/sports bettor.

Comment on Why Pinnacle Sports sucks for the average bettor by Steve Sat, 21 Feb 2015 22:51:00 +0000 This was the solution, but they have now also left the UK market.

Comment on Why Pinnacle Sports sucks for the average bettor by Gabriel Sat, 21 Feb 2015 10:32:00 +0000 Steve, if I
remember correctly, you used to write an article about Bookmaker that can be an
alternative to Pinnacle Sports when Pinnacle leaves UK last year (my apology if
it was not you) and can’t find the article in your site. Can you kindly show
the link navigating to the article or just say Not Me?


Comment on Sportsbook Idea #1 by Ben Fri, 20 Feb 2015 12:28:00 +0000 Sure thing, will send again now. It could be actually I did it as part of your survey form about the app now I think about it.

Customer backed Sportsbook not as crazy as it may seem, I’ve thought of ways of building it from as low as $500K-1M capital initially (excluding legal and regulatory costs). If you could put some serious tech startup innovation behind it anything is possible.

re: sportsbooks, I hear ya, and they are not all assholes. But having been limited by Sportsbet, Centrebet et al, and treated like dirt, I’m not too inclined to do anything to support them.

If anything I’d run a system where you never work for one sportsbook, and they have to bid for your services each time, with escalating prices.
