MONEY MANAGEMENT in Gambling and Investing

The most important in Gambling and Investing is Money Management, otherwise said 'How you manage your Bankroll.'

Proctecting your capital.

Bankroll: Money 

No Bankroll = no Money
No Money = no opportunities to make Money

Since you should never "play" with Money.

The 5% Money Management Rule

Gamble no more than 5% of your Bankroll.

I can make 20 Bets with my personnal Bankroll.
It isn't dramatic if I lose a few bets in a row.
I have the same philosophy for investing in the stock market.

In the long-run, 
Discipline is better than good picking.
Since you can't always pick the winner.

Nothing is 100% safe.
Nothing is 100% sure.
Not even fixed fights and inside trading.

Everything is possible!

So you should NEVER dedicate more than 5% of your Bankroll / Capital on a single bet, investment or poker game.

Fictional Gamblers: Who's the best?
The fictional world is the reflexion of the real world.  Like in the real world, gamblers and investors of all kind are presents in the fictional world of Hollywood.  There is some really interesting and fascinating characters from the movie screen.


The Cincinnati Kid (1965)
His Name: "The Man" Lancey Howard

Accomplishments: As the king of New Orlean's gambling world, The Man has never been beaten in five-card stud.

Shade (2003)

The Runner (1999)

Back to the Future Part II
His Name: Biff Tannen
His Game: Sports Betting

Wall Street (1987)
His Name: Gordon Gekko
His Game: Corporate Raider
Accomplishments:  In 2008, with an evaluated fortune of $8.5 billion, Gordon Gekko was named the fourth richest fictional character by Forbes magazine.  Inspiring an entire generation of stock brokers and day traders. 

The character of  Gordon Gello was partly inspired by Ivan Boesky, Carl Icahn, and "Junk Bond King" Michael Milken.

In my view, in the fictional world of Hollywood and movies, the three greatest gamblers/investors are Le Chiffre, Biff Tannen, and the immortal Gordon Gekko.  If you have other suggestions, don't hesitate to add them in the comments sections below.

Billy Walters

Billy Walters
"Do like Billy Walters and bet on yourself!"

Billy Walters is an excellent all-around professional gambler.  He started gambling at 5 years old and never stopped.  He is known as the greatest and richest sports bettor in the world.  Claiming a lifelong 57% winning percentage on his sports bets.  In 1986, Billy Walters won $3.8 million at the roulette exploiting the flaw of an old wheel at the Golden Nugget casino in Atlantic City.  Winning $3.5 million on 2010 Superbowl and $400 000 on a single golf hole.

But things wasn't always that perfect for Billy Walters.  Before making the big jump in Las Vegas to become a full-time pro gambler.  At 35 years old, Billy Walters was the typical pathological gambler/loser.  He was broke, owing money to several bookmakers, couldn't command any credit, into his third marriage, a ill son...  Despite being a very successful used-car dealer, making between $400 000 to $500 000 a year, he was penniless.  Gambling away all his profits.

No matter what regular job he got in the past, in his mind, he always been a professional gambler - pool, gin rummy, poker, blackjack, roulette, golf, horses, whatever...  But it all changed when in 1982, he moved to Vegas and focused all his efforts into being a professional gambler.  After being broke fifteen times, as he said, he started to focus, went on a 30-year winning streak as a sports bettor, and became a success story.

Thankx to his sports betting expertise, the once dirt poor boy from Kentucky now worth hundreds of millions of dollars.  He owns 7 homes around the world (one of his house worth $29 millions), 8 car dealerships, owns and operates 9 golf courses, shopping centers, commercial properties, a $20 million private jet, and a team of sports consultants and programmers who work for him in his gigantic office located in his Clark County area's grand estate.  And on a normal day, he can gamble an easy $2 million which is enough to move the line and change the odds. 

In a good year, he can rake $15 millions from gambling, which account for only 20% of his revenues.  So if $15 millions represents 20% of his yearly revenue.  We can conclude that he rake $75 millions a year, most of it via real estate.  Not bad for a degenarate gambler!

That's the American Dream!
