As others have said here. Dink made money for years betting sports. Class guy. He has done what very few guys have done for the length of time he has done it. Genuine nice Guy in a business full of bad guys, thieves, con men, mooches, and not honorable people. He is on the top of my list as a great guy and a very sharp mind. and i never ate a meal with the guy.

My simple advise is to focus on what you can control.

He can control where and what he is betting.

He cant control the world and what trump says or does.

When people focus on things that are out of their control that's where depression and feeling lost start to take over our minds and bodies.

It feels as if this is what is wearing Dink down a bit recently.

Also he says he is going to come back when things get back to normal. Well there is no guarantee that happens. Might take years for that to happen, or maybe could be a few months. We don't know.

Understanding the current environment and dealing with it could be our new "normal".

Maybe Dink doesn't need to make another bet again based on his career success. If that offers a better life for him then I hope for the best for him.

okay ...let's start....... Tara Larosa hasn't wrestled a match for me and for anyone else... Maybe you are confusing her with Shayna or you are being your typical shitty self... i didn't retire..just won't handicap during the pandemic... still doing horses..stopped doing hockey because of how easy it is to make a line under these conditions...losing money for other people is gut wrenching and stopping my support of the horses is heartbreaking but i am looking for an alternative way of doing that... i always bet far below Kelly..It's just a tough business now no matter what side you are on unless you are an agent with good customers which I won't do with a felony ...The game has passed me bye ..i don't model and I can't code.. It's a young man's math game now and I tip my hat to those who can prosper in it

boston Massacre..... I am not surprised that you don't know me as my prime was 30 years ago but I am curious when you say all the big names in vegas are from a young persons perspective.. I also co-hosted the EOG radio show with John Kelly once a week a few years ago so that might be why everyone hear knows me
 
"Dink remembers the time he got a call from Billy Walters. Dink couldn't figure out how he got his number and how he supposedly had Billy's betting ticket."

"THE BEST OF IT takes an unflinching look at the life of a professional gambler. The character driven documentary focuses on the lives of Boston, The Shrink, Dink, and Banker who all chose to make a living betting sports. A gambler selects this profession despite knowing the life they fancied tends to chew up and spit out even the most seasoned gambler—an all too common tale in Las Vegas. A feud between Boston and The Shrink develops after accusations are made about gambling debts, but a gambler’s actual bank account balance is often based on rumors and half-truths. The outcome of a gambler is as unpredictable as the the games they bet."


Is this true?

Remember Lem Banker when He was Touting.

Co Hosting EOG Radio With John Kelley Will Get You Lots of Exposure and Notoriety.

I Remember John Kelley When He was a Guest on The Stardust Line.

A Sunday Night With Arne Lange.

John Was Running a 1 900 Number.

Giving out Horse Race Results.

Think it was Arizona St., Who Beat U.S.C.

im an alan boston fan, is a good person. Boston gets that covid, fauci, biden and his handlers .new world order wants to destroy freedom and destroy the world. dink views fauci as god and dink is at war with the real God and is annoyed that Boston sees the truth, dink prefers to be lied to and prefers to worship the new world order.

Good memory, BM.

One slight correction: The phone service I was operating was NOT a 900 number.

Instead, the phone service relayed race results free of charge to horseplayers in Las Vegas.

The number was (702) 594-RACE.

Casinos sponsored the project.

Heim. You stated my exact thoughts. We are all gamblers. I don’t understand how your fellow gamblers are hoping for you to lose. Is it because they can’t win. That is the reason I have not posted in months. I am still strictly playing player props. Very few sides and totals. For you novice players. This is not the time of year to beat the NFL. Lines are the tightest because of 17 games of data. Good Luck this weekend everyone

To this day, I don't think Boston has gotten over Fezzik ridiculing him on radio and his forum for laying 7.5 with Patriots in SB when 7 was available.

So tell me why would Fezzik even mention that concerning a renowned college basketball bettor?

And Boston posting Fezzik's propensity to post stale numbers while the market is moving or moved.

He's right but you get the underlying motive.

As I remember, Fezzik criticized Boston for saying the Pats would win the SB 48-0 or something ridiculous like that.

But I agree anyone listening to Boston's NFL handicapping is a total idiot.

Gamblers face enough opposition already (bookmakers, gaming rules and regulations, the IRS, the federal government and society-at-large) without attacking one another.

I appreciated ABUNDY's recent post.

My Psych~101 teacher that I had at Fresno St would say ~Every Single Week~, is that the only reason to put others down, was because you had low esteem and were trying to build yourself up in your own mind...

Surly I fall into that category too.
