    So people don't come to this forum and fall for the rubbish that most people write about how good their tips are given that many ask to be paid for them.

    Remember, it's an open forum and I'm free to do that. I'm not breaking any rules.

      Finally we agree on something. BA has always been about sharing between members instead of charging for it.

      I rest my case regarding your luck vs skill discussion, I feel like we're speaking a different language here.
      He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.

        Joe, nice posts(#56, 57) Slightly more convincing Although, like Prija, I'm not quite sure how comparing chance to the overall picture formed from limited picks by many tipsters draws any sort of conclusions concerning the skill of those in profit? Nobody is denying that chance alone can and will get many in profit. However, the idea that anyone can stay there and constantly increase those profits through chance alone is highly improbable. Survivorship bias could only be used as a plausible argument IF everyone was playing the exact same game. But with a ton of sports and thousands of markets being played, we know that's simply not the case. Anyway, I think you've more than proved your point that there are many "pro tipsters" who simply have no right charging for their "expert" picks. More fool the mugs who pay for any of those idiotic services.

          well ...interesting debate we got here ..i have been following wth one eye and have not read deeply every post nor did i those papers wrote by JOE ... B

          .. after serious reckoning and furher considerations i came to the conclusion dear JOE ...B ...that u ought to perhaps just perhaps write a freekinĀ“ book entitled ....
          LOOK GUYS I COULD NOT DO IT ... end of story .... long story sort ...

          post number 53 & 54 sum my toughts .. forget about luck ..certainly not in such big samples u mention ..reasons are obvious and yes the main word is mind set and psichology ..if sharp smart educated bettors that can find value and beat odds would be machines w/o feelings .... bookies would probably do not exixt so yes it psichology like aka the blot man mentioned ....


          and that based ur lucky toughts on public tipsters is mainly not good measure ... widely known as u mention probettors do not need to sell tip or pretend like i agree most tipsters sites do to be supper dupper and having printing money machines
          most of them are either scams or just not so good as they pretend to be ... ..thx and enchante ...JOEEEEEEEI

            Hmm .. To be honest, this is a really difficult question. Some people are just very good at analyzing information and ways to predict the likely outcome. Very often, these people are great at playing casinos or solving math problems. They spend a lot of time really trying to calculate the final score, so I am very offended when I understand that there are people who are just trying to predict the result. I also noticed that many people use services that provide the value of numbers, for example, such as https://numerologyangel.com/. Based on the information they receive on this site, they draw conclusions about the final result. I don't know why, but very often such people are lucky and they get good money for it.
