AP is dead, a phantasm, an illusion



Just because you repeat the same thing over and over again, it doesn't make it true. There are many people who make very good money playing casino games, and support themselves in this way. I know some of them (I am not one of them -- I have an actual job. I continue to believe that "professional gambler" is a hard way to make an easy living). However, I can assure you that these people exist. I'm not sure why this fact bothers you so much. I believe that what you are experiencing is called "denial", though.

Study lines in the race and sports book looking for +EV opportunities? check - A-okay.

Anything that risks getting you thrown off a game, or out of a casino? A no go.



If you make enough money betting sports, they will stop taking your action. Or, at least, severely limit your bet size.

The casinos will not take action on any game from anyone who wins consistently. I can't blame them; they are in the business to make money.

Come on Buzzard. A bookie will only take so much of a beating before he says "no more". The independent (illegal) ones will cut you off faster than the casino will.

I'm with Buzz. The only time you cut a guy off is when they run out of money and can't pay when they lose.

If a bookie identifies a winning player, they can/will use that information to their advantage.

In the 1940's Calumet Farm had a jockey who bet with Henry G. ... Calumet was the leading stable by far. When this jockey bet large, Henry laid off the action and bet VERY large.

Forget the jockey's name, but he disappeared in Everglades while fishing. SIGH

Googled it

After getting Citation to the starting gate of the Kentucky Derby, Al Snider decided to go deep sea fishing with a group of friends to relax. On 6 May 1948, they chartered a yacht and went out to fish along the Florida Keys - in one of the corners of the famed Bermuda Triangle. They never returned. Subsequent searches turned up no trace of the yacht, Al Snider, or his friends.


I seem to remember it being a skiff that turned up empty days later. Rumors of foul play, etc.
