More as a note to self, I'm at $1,900. Let's see if I can get online at a reasonable hour to place a bet in the coming games. Time zones are throwing me off, which they shouldn't since I've been living in this time zone for 1.5 decades, but they still do.

No excuses, Pickle. You can make your bets at any time. (The betting window is always open.) Cap usually gives plenty of warning for upcoming games.

Plus, Covid restrictions sure puts a wrinkle on things. It’s like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.

I suppose a wise man would wait until the last minute to see who’s playing before making his bets.

Yeah the issue is with the way things are going I'm not likely to place a bet more than a day beforehand... but I'm juggling remote working / small child out of kindergarten due to COVID and business trips, so sometimes by time I look at the board the day has passed... But also, I guess the way things are going, I might sit out some of these bets anyway.

Just ribbing you. Yeah, I think the smart play is to sit out games that you don’t have a good feeling about. In real life, I’m not going to bet on every game either. It’s got to be a challenging time to have a kindergartner!

It's a blessing that I'm getting to spend so much time with her. Definitely not complaining...

Not to be a pain, but can this thread be moved to the general section or is there a way for me to block it? It constantly shows unread and my OCD won’t let it sit unread.
