“For all intents and purchases…”? For the love of science, does anyone employ copy editors anymore?

Also, if this guy is just beating the sports bets/casinos at their own game, he should fight this to the Supreme Court. The idea that those businesses get to bring down the state on a person for figuring out how to improve their odds is offensive to the very idea of a free society. Those businesses, like every business, takes a risk that some one will be better at it. You don’t get to ban the competition just because you start loosing.

Kinda like when stock trading apps halted gamestop transactions because independent traders were causing losses for hedge funds.

Kinda. Of course, trading apps aren’t the government…

It is in quotes though so maybe the Yale student wrote it like this in a email to the publication, lol

That was my interpretation but if that’s the case they should have added [sic], otherwise it just looks like a typo on the publication’s part.

Sportsbooks limit and ban people all the time. It’s their right and they put it in the terms and conditions. It sucks but that’s how it is.

Kind of like how casinos ban you for life if you win too often. When gambling, the house always wins, and if they lose, they'll just change the rules to stop you.

What is preventing the Yale student from having friends or relatives bet on his/her behalf? Spread the betting over a period of time?
