Sorry if you bet on Djokovic.  

I don't think he did it on purpose.  It was just a temper tantrum but booting him was the right call.

Mike Sexton passed away today from prostate cancer.  He was 72.

He is a hall of famer, former bracelet winner, and was currently the chairman for Party Poker.  But most will know him as the lead announcer for the World Poker Tour.

This was from the $10K event on the bubble.

3 betting with 74s is crazy stuff.  The 4 bet is ugly, it needs to be much larger.  Everyone is calling 150K into 700K, make it bigger and introduce some fold equity.  

After that it is just luck box city.

Our analyst Geoffrey Fisk estimates the Michigan online gambling market to be $650 million in the first year.  Sports betting will generate $450 million and online casinos are estimated at $200 million with a total of $93 million in tax revenue going to the state.

The 2021 Michigan budget is $61.9 billion.

Such a POS company.

They set a date for all future bets to be cancelled from US customers.  OK, makes sense they have to set a date somewhere.  But the date is before we crown a NHL/NBA champ.  OK whatever, some people will have tickets that would have won and now wont.  You will get your money back at least.

But what I read today actually made me mad.  They wont refund your NBA future bet now.  They are letting tonights Celtics/Raptors game go off like normal.  They will collect from the losers and simply refund the winners money in a week and a half without them ever having a chance to win.  

If a ticket has no shot at winning it shouldn't be able to lose.

Just back from placing some bets.  Just a few symbolic NBA bets since that used to be my thing and I wanted to place some legally for the first time.

Celtics to win the ECF +700

Celtics to win the finals +1600

NOP -3 -110

LAL -4.5 -110

 

The dream is alive.

Someone had Detroit -2.5 for $175,000.  

 

Anyone with $175k laying on the Lions deserves to be broke.

Can you imagine that poor *******.   Probably had 5 or 6 TV's going at the same time.  Maybe turns off the Lions game in the 4th since he is up 14.  He never saw it coming.

New strat.  Any time the Lions are ahead going into the 4th quarter, hammer the other teams ML.

Denver is +7.5 tonight. 

I wonder what the largest game 7 spread was.

Eh, first one I looked up was Boston +7 in their 2010 game 7 against the Lakers.  So maybe 7.5 isn't that big.

Watching Jeopardy tonight and see a commercial for their sponsor right before they come back from commercial.  It is for a pan company and Grant Achatz is the spokesperson.  He never mentions his name but does mention his restaurant.

Tiger shot a round with 5 birdies and still ended up +3.

He missed the cut.
