i dont believe him either.Nobody makes a profit from gambling in the long run.The bookies have a house edge and nobody in the world can beat this edge in the long run.Its mathematically impossible.Anybody who claims to be a 'pro gambler or making a profit from gambling is a barefaced liar.Skill only slows down the rate a gambler loses money.In the fullness of time all gamblers lose their bankroll whether they want to believe it or not.

It's difficult but not impossible, look at Pyro's log for example.
He has been makin a consistent profit on the flat racin and he's had a few winners the last few days.

Gambling is a fools game, most people know the odds are against them... But it is so addictive! I had a serious problem with gambling!

Poker is a form of gambling, I can provide lifetime graphs of decent profit as can many others on this forum and others I'm sure. Therefore your point about gambling being a fools game is invalid.

So misinformed it's almost hilarious. It's true that very few people do make money from it, but plenty do.
