Record Update

Week Results
I don't have the W/L handy, but the ROI was 20.14%.

YTD Results
38 - 45 - 12 (-12.6 units ROI: -7.6%)

Other thoughts... who freaking cares about this royal wedding crap? How does something that does not matter dominate the news for like 3 weeks leading up to it, then continues to do so following it?

Sportsbook.com Closing to New USA Players

Received an email from [SuperBook]/[Sportsbook.com]. See below:

Due to the recent industry events we will no longer accept new signups from United States residents. Sportsbook.com, PlayersOnly.com and Superbook.com will cease accepting new U.S. players on May 1st, 2011.

It appears that current accounts will be unaffected. If you don't have an account at [SuperBook]/[Sportsbook.com], I'd consider getting one before the deadline. I'm guessing depositing and withdrawing will continue to get more difficult, however.

Poker

Well, I'm glad I don't play poker... Link

What kind of "free" country is this where you can't gamble your own money away?

Best of luck to the many with money on absolute, full tilt, and pokerstars. I'm rooting for you guys.

I cut my fractional kelly amount down. It appears that I was generating great lines still, just over betting (mostly the lines between -110 and +110). We'll see if that makes a difference.
