Re(4): Stage Set for Nice Jai 5 Mandatory Payout Friday Posted on June 27, 2017 at 06:47:52 PM by StraymarJA
I know a friend of mine is spending about $400 on Jai 5 tonight to try to take it down. Not one of those one-ticket wonder bets but he does pretty sophisticated plays (every post in every game is used on portions of the bet, lots of tickets). His plan was to try and take down the pot before before the big guns go after it on closing nite. Not sure the "big guns" are still betting on this stuff though (i.e. Gallo, Templins).
I wished him good luck. In my opinion a pretty risky venture because if he doesn't hit 5/5 as the single winner (and chances very slim on single ticket 5/5), he likely can't get his investment back even with the full consolation payout.
I think he is most likely building the pot to where it might make it more likely the "big guns" will be going after it, so he's maybe shooting himself in the foot for mandatory payout. Time will tell. Replies:
