Excuse me while I gloat

Hey Guys, as a small-time 'degenerate' gambler please excuse my desire to boast and also to find out if anyone else have ever won any type of contests/big bets etc in their lives.

Before this I once bet $380 on a roulette 2:1 profit middle column bet ($760 profit for those counting at home) and that has remained my greatest win for the 8 or 9 years since.

I'm a typical $20-25/bet gambler and I'll bet on almost anything (I even used to get into asian volleyball games at 3am if it was available for betting on bet365 - they offer everything). Since then, I've calmed down and stick to more traditional offerings, and enter in these random contests on various sites whenever I see them as available.

Pinnacle sports recently had a tournament for the World Cup, and these were the results:

http://www.pinnaclesports.com/online...le-puzzle.aspx

I'm not adept at embedding that here without the formatting getting messed up so I'll leave it to those willing to click the link for in depth info. I'm curious if anyone on this board is also a member of the site and also entered the tournament.

Who would have thought that a Canadian would win a World Cup contest? Haha. Pretty awesome email to wake up to. Planning a vacation at the end of August with my gf for a week and this will definitely help.

It's crazy to me that no one tied me. I didn't pick all 4 options correct. I was 3/4 , on the last selection I chose offsides as my answer. Basically you take the total from each selection and multiply it by the next total and again and again. This is how I ended up with a score of ~1.8M.

Crazy day. Withdrew just over $2300 to make sure I don't lose it all (had $600+ on the site before the win) on some impulsive UFC bet tonight haha.


What is your greatest contest/betting win?

This one still pales in comparison to my brother's bad beat jackpot poker win of just over 25K last year, but is still a nice win from a free contest.

Cheers for reading.

I didn't even know that comp was on I could have won a lot too, then again I don't use pinnacle sports so unlikely. So congrats man enjoy your holiday with your gf. I have some UFC bets on tonight myself as per usual and the most I have one is about 3k off $20 on a multibet I made but usually every few months i win a couple of k with a bet of 20$

That is sick. My "large" parlay wins are usually $250-300 on tenners, and normally during NFL season.

Good luck tonight, who ya got?

Looking to get back into the action. Havn't made any meaningful MMA bets since last Dec. if you know what I mean...heh. Thanks Boatoar for taking $20 from me...don't even remember what the bet was.

Made a betting section...we should all trade tips and do a SHARED POOL! Sideways is another gambler.

We should play poker. Know quite a few peeps who won bad beats and actual WSOP tournies.

Hopefully you had the ME ITD bet as your largest play. I had cowboy by sub at +350. Was hoping for replay of Barboza...for not. Also had Ozkilic and Dunham for small as medium dogs. Haha 0/3 today. Went for those "value" odds though, with small risk. No value in losing, of course. And No mercy, mah man. I can't remember what the $20 was for either. haha, will have to figure that out. Man of your word, though. Respect.
Easy not to be on the web. As far as poker, I'm not a player. That's my bro's domain for sure. I'll check out the betting section here in a bit.

Yeah it was a rough day for betting, somehow healy can dominate jim miller but can't do a thing against tibau who sucks, alex white was winning hsi fight and then got blasted in the third and also the aforementioned dedeno joke fight. I'll bounce back for the better mcgregor card and weekend baseball
