We need to have a sphere of collusion just like Elihu uses to thwart the larger professional books. Any idea how we go about such an endeavour, Durito?

I don't know what to say about that. I keep expecting VIP to boot me or do something but I have been dealing with them for many years and no issues so far. I have won well into 5 figures there and sometimes I go for long periods of time playing nothing but my favorite team bets with the free points. As I say, I keep expecting them to say enough. But nope. Full limits and very fast Moneybookers payouts when I request them.

I remain in reasonably good standing with SIA too after many years.

I have an account with VIP but haven't played with them in years, is it easy to get money into them?

Yea, I had an odd experience with my original VIP account. Cut me to $500 limits the first week in 2005. Kept them there for a while I guess, I dunno I kept losing. Was hitting them with that free 1pt favorite team bet all last year no problem (except that I kept losing). Then I checked my limits this fall and noticed they were back to full limits. I went on a little run, like +15k and they took away the free pts and gave me $200 limits. So I kept a bit there to hit all their NFL playoff props, cashed out and they closed my account.

So I got a friend to sign up and that lasted about 12 days hitting the favorite team bets.

They do pay out fast.

Credit cards, wu/mg, and use my wallet if you have it is the easiest.

Durito move to Greece. You can bet at actual shops there and forget the online betting. You may be raped on juice but you can cash your ticket regardless of size minutes after the final whistle. Then if they boot you you go to the one next street and then move in the next town until you're finally kicked out of the country by the mob for winning all the money.

If I could beat those books easily enough I'd have no use for the mickey mouse books listed here. I'm working on it.

I've always believed in the axiom popularized by Sun-Tzu which states "So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss." I believe a large portion of Elihu's success stems from his years as a Pinny linesman. We need someone with a similar background to aid us in our war against the bookies.

Never will those who wage war tire of deception.

Juror, start booking again. I recommend following tsopranos model.

Pavy,
Are you actually originally from Greece? I think you mentioned that to me in Vegas.
