Opening‌ ‌Las‌ ‌Vegas‌

Last week, the governor of Nevada presented his “Road to Recovery” plan and announced that Las Vegas casinos will not be reopening until, at the earliest, late June or July.  This estimate seems wildly optimistic and would mark approximately four months of closure.  While politicians try to ease the panic and attempt to offer a positive spin, the reality is far more bleak.  Las Vegas faces the steepest and most difficult climb back to normalcy of any city in America.  And even when Vegas does “re-open,” the town we once knew will likely never be the same. While opening the casinos may be welcomed by the local gamblers craving for some action, it will not signal recovery.  The reality is that twenty years ago, Vegas was THE place to gamble - only a few states had casinos and nothing could match the action and excitement Vegas provided.  Fast forward to 2020 and nearly every American can get to a casino with three hour drive or less.  Large, well-funded properties are popping up in...

Groundhog Day

The classic Bill Murray movie, “Groundhog Day” is a favorite of mine and millions of others. People love watching Murray make his way through this fantasy-world scenario where everything is the same every day. Beneath the surface, this fantastical movie reflects interesting realities right now. There have been a lot of witty social media memes around the “Groundhog Day” nature of being sheltered in place and its repetitive daily nature. That viewpoint centers on Murray’s surreal experience as an out of towner trapped and experiencing the same day on loop.

As we adjust to quarantine life and prepare for the “new normal” that awaits us, our everyday routine has brought us closer to our living rooms and our remote controls.  It may be monotonous, but we should remind ourselves that it could be worse.  Imagine being ordered to stay at home during the time of the Spanish Flu that paralyzed the country in 1918.  Imagine how your days would be spent before the era of television, mobile devices, and the internet.   It was a simpler time, which is not necessarily a bad thing.  One could argue people spent more quality time with their families before those technologies.  I remember earlier days of playing cards with my entire family.  Although we only played for pennies, those games remain some of my memories that I always cherish and will never forget.   That said, we now live in this technology era.  During this quarantine, without family around (other than of course my wonderful wife), I have gone back in time and binge-watched some of my...

Why I Started KrackWins

Sports betting may be the only industry in the world where people call themselves “professionals” that simply are not.  If someone says they are a “professional” basketball player, but actually plays in the local Church League, what would you say?  If someone said they were a “professional” pilot but never went to flight school, would you get on their plane?  Of course not.  Similarly, you shouldn’t take betting advice from someone who doesn’t wager for a living. I’ve seen the bottom of the barrel in the industry.  I have encountered scores of people, including friends and family, who have lost their livelihood based on poor information.  With state legalization advancing every month, there are more fakes and fugazi’s popping up every day that are hurting people while at the same time giving my profession a bad name and a black eye.  The difference is that in the past, these folks surfed on an undercurrent, in the shadows. Now, everyone is in plain sight, preying on all the new folks...

I wasn’t a big fan of math in school.  I hated Algebra although, to be honest, I wasn’t terrible at it.  When I graduated high school, I remember being so happy that math was in my rear view.  Little did I know that my calling as a professional...
