    It is the pleb version of Andrewkm's adventure. I put 10k into the bank and I am going to gamble it all away with no knowledge of any pro sports whatsoever (yay!). Either I make 1 mil and cash out or (more likely) I lose it all in a few days. Check the sportsbook tab on my profile and watch this disaster unfold.

    More than a week later and I'm still alive! I made some really stupid mistakes. Like, I thought the Spurs were a hockey team. And yet I've still won a lot more wagers than I've lost? What?

    Do you like flow charts? I do.

    The chart shows my bank balance between wagers from February 13 to February 22. I make about 1 wager each day. Who wants to bet that I go bust in less than a week?

    15k has been added to the pot thanks to @BuildsByGideon and I will be sharing profits with him from now on. Sportsbook entries are on a break while Andrewkm recovers his health, so this adventure will continue when he comes back.

    Check out this roller coaster:



    So what is this showing? After a string of losses I refunded BuildsbyGideon his 15k investment. The money left in his balance at the time was added to my balance of $7,188 to equal $13,001. All the money was then put on a single bet. I thought this was the end of my journey... but then I won! The challenge now is to get my balance over $25000, which is how much I have deposited into the bank of my own money in order to gamble it on sportsbook.

    I give up. I thought I would have gone bust a long time ago but I didn't. And I realized that I'd rather end with a little bit of money in my pocket than to lose it all on purpose. When I come back to sportsbook it will be when I am rich and able to place much bigger wagers.

    For those who are interested, here are some final stats:

    $42,914 - $25,000 = $17, 914 profit
