Greed is a terrible disease. You have got to control it before it blows up your bankroll.

Article is entitled: ď He started the day with $77,000 ó by midnight, he owed $9 millionĒ

Guy did not sleep for three days LULZ (plus in original Bloomberg article, same guy blew up his friends accounts ... way to go!!!).

Here is summary article from marketwatch.com: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/he...ion-2020-05-10

I understand with the land-based casinos and poker rooms closed, lots of APís, AP-wanna beís, etc are turning to online gambling (bonus hustling, online poker, etc) or the greatest casinos in the world (stock & financial markets). However, the same rules apply: Find positive EV plays and donít overbet your bankroll.

Nassim Taleb worked for a company that LOST MONEY consistently buying deep out of money options and kept LOSING MONEY. Then the stock market crashed in 2008 - 2009 and Taleb was instantly RICH ... financially independent for life.

Same thing about Wimbledon and itís pandemic insurance that lost money for years and then hit a pay day.

I keep saying this: EV trumps probabilities (or win rates). Taleb was losing money on trades each month and Wimbledon lost millions each year but the HUGE payday made it worthwhile for both of them.
