With a 17% rake, horses are a tough way to make money. It's funny how everybody who bets horses claims to be a winning player and yet still the tracks finds a way to take 17%. Where are all the losers?

The few winners I know work VERY hard at it. They live it. They know their horses, they know their trainers, they know their jockeys. They are IN the paddock, at the walking ring, they are watching them come in from the gap. They keep meticulous notes on "physicality". Horses are not machines. The main difference between horsey tells and poker tells is that poker players go opposite, you have to figure out what they really mean when they are lying, generally. But horses are very honest. They tell you how they feel, if you can speak Horse. Football handicappers should be so lucky to know which players don't feel so spiffy on game day. Horses will tell you.

You asked where are all the losers? They're waiting for their checks. Same as poker. What would the floor of Commerce look like if there was no First of the Month?

OK Kyle, that just about convinces me that you are nothing but a spammer promoting your own app. This site does not permit spammers to use the site as their own personal billboard, unless they wish to pay for advertising space.
So, I've consulted with Wizard with a view to banning you and redacting all your promotional posts.
In the meantime, DO NOT mention or rave about that app any more.

[edit]On further investigation. Kyleyoman is a duplicate id of a previously banned member and is therefore banned for life[/edit]
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

As long as you're a skilled player better than other players at the table.

How do you know that you are the best player at the table?

An old saying.
If you can't determine who the sucker is at your table, chances are its you.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
