I thought about starting some small bet's as well, because of all those huge upsets lately. And it's not even close as annoying as an online Poker game Even though I still believe Sportsbetting is bloodly^^

But this card can easily pull at least one upset alizio!

So good luck for tonight

My average ROI is actually 226%. The ROI I commented on is the fact that I have turned $150 into $1100. I do pretty decent in the long tournaments which really inflates the ROI after you get a couple final table finishes. I have been playing for the last 4 years but mainly for fun so I don't play all that often.

One mma fight that I wish I had of bet on with real money was the Cain Nog fight, I knew he was going to win and bet my credits here but couldn't bring myself to do it with real money . Its not often you get odds like that though.

i play mainly MTTs aswell. Altho i do one day a week of complete SNG grinding (16 tables of $16 turbos on pokerstars at a time for 6 hours) and i do one day of $1nl 6man max for about 4 hours.

I have a full MTT schedule 5 days a week which is why im always on my PC and can be on here quite often. I play mostly on absolute, stars, cake, bodog and fulltilt. Altho at times i play on betfred, ub (same as AP now tho) and party.

what typical buy ins do you play for MTTs??

I play on pokerstars, lately been playing $2 and $4 MTTs and then the Sunday quarter million $11 buy in. My 2 big wins were on $1 MTTs, finished 2nd and 5th for a combined ~$680. Biggest MTT buyin I have entered was a $40.

I do quite well at heads up matches as well with a nearly $375 profit but I don't find them as enjoyable because you have to work so hard lol.

Do you use sharkscope? It is a pretty cool little tool. Here are a couple of my graphs.

Overall


Without large MTTs

The Gonzaga/Vera odds are ridiculous but the Buentello odds make sense. Buentello may have a litte more of a chance than the odds are giving but it's basically spot on.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

i think all of those odds are pretty damn good and all the guys have a better shot then those odds indicate.

that being said ill be really surprised if i win this parlay but hell, $25 to win 1k... i can live with it if i lose.

thoughts?? flames?? anybody else wanna do it??

Dont see those three winning but like you said alizio for 25 bucks its worth it.....

Vera has his hands full and so does GG.....I believe buentello is in there just to get Kongo a win.....I know alo of people dot think the UFC works that way but I do....
