    So serious question he started off with his tax income from him and his wife about 4k he ended up making about 6k from that and withdrew he redeposted 1k about a month ago he now has over 150k from it he was my old solder I did 12 yrs in the army I told him to stop and buy a house whereever he wants to retire at. he said I will when i get to 500k i was saying dude you need to stop at least go buy a house in TX where he wants to retire at for 100k or do something with it he said I will soon. He messaged me today saying hes gonna talk to his chain of command to chapter him out because hes gonna be rich like wtf dude

    This was his most recent bet he showed me of course he is like your avg sherdogger only shows us the winnings and never the losses he bet 56k on the Yankees today cashed out idk when but he got 25k back then put it on this parlay. He bets legit dumb shit Jappanese baseball 7 teamer that he hit I even asked him how many innings is it he said IDK he put 25k on a ping pong match last night and hit

    Degen on a heater

    He beat the odds so far. Even after the Yankees fiasco. If he doesn't cash out and take a break, he will be busto in that account within sixty days at this rate. Hell, maybe sooner.

    He is losing all sense.

    His target of $500K is unrealistic. He already beat the odds to run it up as high as he did. And he is a square, from what you say.

    100%, he'll go until he busts out. If by some miracle he gets to his goal it will only validate that he should keep going further. Plus the apps are designed to stimulate that endorphin rush and keep you going. I can't even imagine the type of notifications/enticements the app throws your way when you have that much deposited and are freely betting, they want you on the train and never getting off.

    If he's been in the army 12 years then he's got to be early 30s, so you're probably also up against some form of midlife crisis here as well. He's looking around and thinking "why don't I have it all?" and he thinks this is his path to it.

    Good points.

    Some people have to learn from their own mistakes, I guess.

    "I guess he don't think fat meat is greasy."
    "You'll be SORRY."
    "Mama said there'd be days like this."
    etc.

    There is nothing you can say or do. He will have to hit whatever his bottom is, then he might be open to getting help

    Even though you aren't hurting for money, ask for the $100 back.

    Why?

    Trust me. It's a psychological thing. It will be a shock to him when you hit him like that.

    EDIT: Over twenty-two years ago, I was squaring up some business dealings with a friend/client. I ended up owing him forty-two cents. He wanted his money. It was a very good lesson I still remember to this day. You asking for money back that you don't really "need" before he fucking degens it all away may be something he remembers for a while, too.

    It's his money let him do as he pleases. If I had 150k though I would withdraw 130k and play with the rest.

    Crazy to stake that much lol, your buddy must be a baller. I couldn't imagine losing a stake like that on a single bet though, he must have tons of disposable money to do reckless wildman shit like that (hopefully).

    This dude was broke three months ago, though. Borrowed (was gifted?) a hundred from OP. Got $4K tax money, and went on a legendary heater.

    He's got balls the size of watermelons, now, but in a few days, they will be raisins.

    This is the equivalent of someone who can't go out for a beer or two with friends. If they take a sip, they are getting blackout drunk and going on a 2 week bender.

    Your buddy needs help but sadly he doesn't want it so will crash and burn.

    Like any other addiction, you , as a friend can’t get him to change..He has to hit his own bottom , whatever that looks like …Hopefully the cost is not his entire family…
