Dialogue with Slim

Thanks.

I care much more about someones actual wins and losses... as units can be manipulate ... as stated by others you could be below 500 (way below) but up in cash.

:thanks:

Exactly. Doesnt matter what someones record is imo. Wouldn't you rather have more cash in your pocket than more wins? Don't really get ur post Kenz..

I think his point is when someone loses 3 3unit pays and wants to chase it with a 10 unit play it really isnt the best way. I'm a win/lose kinda guy...i work on a 2% bankroll system so that won/loss record works good for me.

Most people have been doing this long enough are going to flat bet 95% of their games and step out occasionally with a larger play.

I would never make a 10 unit play, its just terrible money management in my opinion. For a *3 unit bettor a *10 play would be absolutely detrimental to lose. Betting is a marathon. If you lose a *10 unit play you are going to be chasing to make up your losses and this is whole people spiral out of control. I encourage everyone to flat bet as much as possible and step out occasional. If you typically bet $55 a game and you REALLY like a game, the max I would put on it is $110 which is double your normal play.

Ya, I don't post my units because

1.) I flat bet 95% of my games so anybody who sees I am 8-6 in college hoops will know I am up something like 4 units.

2.) I really hate doing the math and posting my units every day :rofl:

Agreed. To each his own..I assumed kenz was excluding the chasers that throw out the 10 unit plays to play catch up. Thats why I was confused. Im just glad you two like posting records as well win or lose. :cheers:

smitty,

Basically that was my point. Of course I want $$ in my pocket but as it relates to reviewing someones "record" I want to know how rtheir wins and losses so determine how good they are. The units can throw off poor info if they are a three unit player but win one 10 unit play.

But you are also right .... I want to know both and then be able to determine if they chased and one a real big play ....[hr]

:thumbsup: agreed. This is pretty much exactly what I do. The only play I would increase past a double play would maybe be a GOY. Then it's at a max 3x play. But that's only one play per season.

LETS GO STILLERS! :cheers1:

how am I just now finding this thread? lol.

It's really easy to look better than you are. I flat bet. If I step out on a game I simply don't post it. I leave people's money management up to them. I don't even really need to post a record anymore, as I have established a pretty good rapport here. I simply do it to track myself, and for anyone that might be completely new to the site.

I don't mind chasing type systems when you are using smaller units, and on a system that has a proven track record of at least 60 percent. I think however each person wants to manage their money is up to them. You just have to be honest with yourself. It all starts with knowing your shit and getting your games right. The rest will fall into place.

I agree with Golly and Robinson... The only way I can make money betting games is by flat betting. I had to learn the hard way about flat betting my games and just increases the size of my bets as my bankroll slowly grows.. When I bet more on a certain games I ended up losing money even though I won more games than I lost...

**I truly enjoy all of you. Especially my homies on the NBA board. We fight the fight that others are scared to. Smart or dumb, thats up to you, but we do our thing in the most feared sport in gambling. This narrative is intended for comedy/entertainment purposes, if you have any problems with the way your name is mentioned in here, please let me know.**

Meet your board-mates! After being on web-sites similar to this since my head was full of hair and back was not, I have noticed the different dynamics that you see around a board and how it takes all types to have a successful board like we do here. Everyone plays an important role, and management appreciates the time that all of you spend here to make this a better place.

Write-Up Guy (Slim): If I am going to be tossing out shots in here, I might as well start with yours truly. Write-Up guy is one of the boards best. I dont know if it is his natural insecurity or his desperate need for an online gambling forum to become his personal facebook, but this guy loves to type. Whether it is breaking down a match-up all the way to how a player ties his shoes, or giving you a weather update that only Al Roker could appreciate, Write-Up guy is going to tell you about it. Write-Up guy normally is also "bored at work guy" or "I dont have a job guy," because who the hell has the time to sniff through mountains of statistics to let you know a teams shooting % on a Thursday when the game is Nationally broadcasted. The funny thing about Write-Up guy is that it is very hard for him to look bad. If you post enough angles, you are bound to hit one right on the nose.

Mr Good Luck (Play2Win) : The name says he "plays to win," but Im wondering if he ever plays. Nobody makes their rounds like this guy. The guy has planted so many shamrocks across this board, I am beginning to think his name is Patrick O'Shamrock. You post it, he will wish it luck. Sometimes, I am tempted to post a play like, "Odds are I am going to sleep with an HIV+ hooker tonight," just to see if he would wish me good luck on it. Couple days ago, I went in to interview for a new job. My fiance never mentioned anything of it to me in the morning and my feelings were a bit hurt. How did she not wish me good luck? Well, I knew exactly how to fix that problem. I came on to CappersIsland and show Play2Win a quick PM. I said, "Got a jump interview today....". He didnt respond with anything other than :luck: .

Board Slut (EMT) : EMT is one of the nicer guys on this forum. Only problem is, he has a new boyfriend on here everyday. I swear, this guy has been passed around the NBA forum more than a groupie at a Too Short concert. From me, to SPD, to Sports4All, to Gully, to Cenger, this guy has had his keyboard between more legs than Dirk Diggler. Basically, by using EMT as our source, I have had more partners in the last month than I did in the first twenty years of my life. If you guys in other forums start seeing him in your threads, you better put a condom on. He comes in your thread and treats you special, but will leave you as soon as he finds a new system to track. Between O/Us, 1st quarters, and half plays, EMT has been through more personalities than an EMO teenager.

Gadget Guy (Sports4ALL) : If you can make a bet on it, chances are this guy is going to have an angle. From 1st quarters to fading fired coaches, Sports has tried every single angle someone can think of. Unless you are a 13 year old living in your mothers basement, it is damn near impossible to follow this guy. Seriously, who the hell has the time to sit on the computer from 5 pm to midnight in an attempt to catch this guys plays?

Scam Artist Poster (EPS) : No person has been able to ride the coattails of other peoples picks like PoCaleb. Many of you that have known PoCaleb since he was Epsilon will remember that he made his online "name" by posting Teddy Covers' plays for years. Now, he posts plays using some "model" that is probably picks taken from another capper. This doesnt stop him though. He will continue to pretend like they are his picks until they flame out. PoCaleb has mastered the art of posting a record (or not posting one) in order to make himself look better. If things are going good, you can count on him throwing that sucker up like a Mexican does his flag on Cinco De Mayo. If not, no record. "Im too busy," is normally the line we get. Living off the reputation that another tout built for him, PoCaleb wont go long without posting his record. When things turn around, he will toss a cute little "6-1 run" at the top of his thread.

Made Man (Teddy June) : There is no doubt that Teddy June is one of the better cappers on this web-site. For one reason or another, all of our paths have ended up crossing because of this guy. However, Mr June's record happens to disappear so often that his threads should be called The Bermuda Triangle. When you find a guy that is never questioned about his record and still has a ton of followers, you have found yourself a Made Man. This isnt something that happens easy. For years, Teddy has been pumping out winners at 65%, and now he finds himself in a position that NOBODY could ever question him. This is the highest position someone can earn on a message board. Congrats Mr June, youve made it.

Best Capper You've Never Tailed (dirtymoney) : For some reason, certain people can post winners day in and day out and never get the respect that they truly deserve. DirtyMoney (Dack) is the guy around this board that you better be watching. I dont care if you want to play your own plays, but you better make sure this guy is not on the other-side. How this guy only get 50 page views blows my freaking mind. How people have never found this guy is one of the more fascinating things that I have seen on these boards in the last 5 years. I dont think he has ever had ONE losing season, yet he is dismissed as quickly as other fly by night posters that have a cute gimmick or like to write 5000 words on a single play. Sometimes less is more, and a poster like this is at every message board waiting to be found.

Gimmick Guy (SimpleIslander) : Simple...islander....bet....you name it, he has done it. This guy has more gimmick plays than any other poster ever. TRAP-PLAY, BIGSTICK, & ROCKING CHAIR are just a few that he has used to garner a nice herd of sheep. He actually even carved out a nitch for himself using his ridiculous style of posting. The ironic part about him is that he is a pretty good capper, but just fitting into the crowd is not his idea of fun. HE NEEDS A BIGSTICK to swing around. You will find this sort of poster on every single board. They end up being down money because the thrill of posting a cute gimmick is much more important than managing money. He is about 20 games over .500 this year, and last time I checked he was down over 15 units. Eeeek.

The Loser (Slim) : This guy has way to much time on his hands and spends an inordinate amount of time doing ridiculous things like this in order to waste away another pointless day at work.

:thanks:

I want to get made fun of!!! My parents told me when you get made fun of its because the person cares about you...

I am dying laughing at this. I am like the new guy in prison that tried to hook up with the right "hook up" instantly to stay safe.. only to find out that I am with the weakest guy in the prison that just happened to be having a good week. Sorry Eps lol I am moving on
