Re(6): I dont get it?

I remember shortly after the strike in 88 Newport and Hartford became mostly amateur venues.That was the time that Newport went year round and many young and talented pros met their demise. Obviously the amateurs sucked,,,but they at least had some experience. As time went on,alot got better and some did not. I had a great time financially at both frontons handicapping what I considered a wide disparity in talent. I might add that alot of the players in the strike era became excellent pros.My point is that now you have VERY bad (I cannot call them players) participants in a situation where tri pools warrant my attention from a gambling perspective,BUT its not that easy. I had a guy who was on fire keyed on a 453 tri,Paid $ 205. Not good. Also had a 134 tri for only $220.Then a 641 tri pops for $857 on Sun. I have yet to see a rebote off the back wall returned, Over/under serves about equal to putting it in the box. If you are numbers player,go for it. I have seen some nice payoffs. Other than that,I'll pass. Steve D
