A little bit about myself. I took 96 dollars from the bookmaker program on memorial day weekend, ran it up to 3600 in three weeks. Started losing gradually with baseball, wnba, and tennis. The final nail in the coffin was when I lost on the Phillies last saturday in that crazy 5 run 9th inning by the twins.
So where am I going with this? I've been doing this for 6 years and I've never felt like I enjoyed it despite some nice runs. I despised watching the scoreboard night-in, night out, and when I did win, I felt like the bankroll was always in peril.
For the long-time players, do you just bet small and watch it with an apathetic approach? Or do you just maintain your emotions better than I did? For instance, I went ape shit, screaming into pillows, taking a cold shower, when that Phillies game lost.
I'm thinking about hanging it up for good, and i was wondering if there are any rewarding benefits to sticking around in this hobby. Maybe some feel--good stories will make me get that interest again.
