‘Professional gambler’

Never hear of him until the luck on Sunday thing…

does he make hid dough purely on punting or has he got other ‘earning angles’

I expect you get paid for appearing.

I was asked to do an interview on a channel on course in Scotland….obviously refrained…

Report Escapee December 16, 2022 2:21 AM GMT
Really nice and very honourable guy, with a very sharp, very astute betting mind.
Widely and deservedly respected by all the upper echelon gamblers.

worked for a few years in the industry before buying circa 50 pitches at auction and becoming an on-course bookie (pre Betfair days), so he definitely know his horse betting.

One of the bigger players in Betfairs early years, running (very profitable) books on markets from the Oscars to the Derby.

As for the time he won E800,000 and the Irish Open.... Paddy Power ran a book on the event and had him at 30/1. Slightly incensed by being priced so high in the field, and possibly fuelled by red wine he perceived value at 30/1 so he cornered the MD of paddy power at the start of the event (who he was/is a good acquaintance of) and bet £10k on himself... and picked up £300k as well E800k 1st prize.

He has an adventurous approach to life and as a consequence is very amiable company.



P.S.
Neil, if you ever get around to reading this...
Back around 2013/14, I believe The Magician and Dor made casual enquiries to you about myself. I don't know what you said but the light you portrayed me in certainly seemed to impress them, and elevate their belief in my poker skills to probably way beyond actuality.
Thanks for that.

Long time no see, hope you are well.
