VR's New "Release Schedule" & "Package Options"..My Gift to You !!

Thanksgiving Day 2009 marks exactly 2 years to the day that I became a "paid capper"...and I've now shared my information/selections here at Pregame for about 2 1/2 yrs...And I want to Thank You all for the overwhelming support, and more importantly, for the great relationships and friendships that I've made here...

If there is one thing that I've always tried to do...it's listen to YOU...And although I know that I won't ever be able to make everyone happy, with your e-mails, feed-back, comments, ect...I try to satisfy the majority...And I'm fortunate to be with a company that wasn't willing to change the way I work, and risk my results suffering...in order to follow what the majority of other "paid cappers" do...Because they know that I not only bet my own games and have done so forever...but also, that I was never willing to change my approach for the sake of sales...

With that said, if there is one thing that I've learned in this time...is that in the internet age, people want "transparency"...In other words, they don't want to just know what a play is...they want to educate themselves and also learn why...And it's been difficult for me because I've been involved on that side of the industry where staying low-key was always a priority...But you have all helped me to come out of my shell, and be my straight-forward self more...

Bottom Line...my main concern besides "results"...is to always try and educate those who want it, and to also try and make sports betting more enjoyable, and make your ability to access "sharp" information more easy...

And the overwhelming concern people seem to have is that they want "certainty"...They want to know EXACTLY what they are getting, why they are getting it, and when they could expect it...And although at times, explaining in an analysis why...may be difficult due to time restraints...I believe that the rest, is something that I can do...and most certainly want to improve on...

Now I know that sometimes I say too much, and forgive me for the lengthy blog...But it all goes back to "transparency" again...and I try to let you in on all the details...Both, big and small...So after taking a few weeks with RJ, to go over so many e-mails and comments...and also for me to explain exactly how I decide on my official bets...I really think we've come up with the perfect idea...

And although it took some convincing for me...because again, I'm just not used to "giving the keys to the store"...I have seen enough interest from you guys to feel as if I owe this to you...

Bottom Line...nothing is really going to change as far as the way I work...I just couldn't have that...Nor will anything really change as far as "price" goes...Instead, what will change is that you will now "KNOW FOR SURE" what kind of Bet I am making..."WHEN" you could expect it...And finally, you will not be forced to follow me on "EVERYTHING"...like you have to now, unless you want to...

Because I'm not conceited enough, or have the kind of ego...to make me assume that everyone wants to follow everything that I offer..And right now, except for the occasional Best Bet sold seperately...you have been forced to buy ALL of Nothing...And that's not fair, so here is what I've decided...Which will make it so much better for everyone...

 

I make just "4" kind of Bets...

1.) Early "TRUE STEAM"

2.) Late "TRUE STEAM"

3.) "PERSONAL PLAYS"

4.) "BOOKIE BETS"

My "Early & Late" TRUE STEAM...you already are well aware of...I choose from the "early moves" made by the Betting Syndicates that I confirm with my own Lines/Ratings...And I do the same with the "late moves" that come in 1hr+ before game-time...

My "PERSONAL PLAYS"...are those Bets that I have handicapped based on many factors, including a difference in my "Fair Line" & "True Line", to what the books are offering...And many of the systems/projections/models...that I speak about many times...

Finally, my "BOOKIE BETS"...I let you in on as soon as I introduced "BookieBill" to the masses on Twitter...They are those Bets that I get from trusted books that I've known forever...Most are those bets that I know the books are willing to lay 11 to 10 on, as Bill says...which are more rare...And are also those bets that I feel the books are actually taking a position on, by inviting more and more "public money"...Which fortunately I have a good relationship with enough of them, to know for sure how they feel about certain games...

Obviously, as hot as Bill's Slicks have been the L/7 months...I won't lie, probably 90% have come and will continue to come from him...And now that he gave me the green-light to let you know when that is...I have no problem doing so, because I know that many of you capp your own games...and are sharp enough to pick up on patterns and situations that these Slicks look for...

 

I'm sure most of you are also sharp enough, especially the ones who have been with me for so long...and have read my analysis on bets, to have more or less figured all this out yourself...

But for my newer guys...and more importantly, for those who may only feel comfortable...or enjoy betting a particular type of play...I am now willing to let you know what kind it is...

 

With that out of the way, I'll now move on to the "Release Times" for the different bets...

1.) "PERSONAL PLAYS" = WEEKDAYS by 4:00pm est.....WEEKENDS by 11:30am est (NFL 12pm)

2.) "BOOKIE BETS" = WEEKDAYS by 6:00pm est.....WEEKENDS by 12:00pm est

3.) "LATE STEAM" = WEEKDAYS by 6:30pm est.....WEEKENDS by 3:00pm est

 

 

With that schedule, I won't have to change the way that I work at all...And the only problem that I forsee, and Pregame is willing to work with me...is that sometimes, the BookieBets won't get Confirmed late and we'll have to refund your money...

Because although guys like Bill know almost 95% of the time when a Big Bet (Slick) is coming early in the day...They aren't willing to bet it until much later...Because they wait to make sure that no other Outfit is coming in on the other side...Or that the public don't do what they expect...

This is why I knew by the afternoon whether or not Bill would have a Big Slick Bet, and was able to add a 3* to my Package or say a GOW will be released...He wasn't willing to give it out on Twitter until he was willing to bet it...which was much later, when he was sure no "outfits" were coming in on the other side...

So on those instances, I will simply let you know that there will not be a Bet...and Pregame is will to simply refund your money for the pick...Because there is just no way that I will ever force a bet, and therefore...that won't be a problem...

 

Finally, I apoligize for the length of this Blog...But I really just wanted to lay it all out there so that there is no confusion...My Subscribers won't see any change at all...

And the only real difference is that the Daily Players, will now be able to purchase the different packages seperately...

Because even though I will continue to offer an "ALL-ACCESS" each day...which will Include EVERY type of play...

I will also put up Individual Packages for much cheaper...Which will now allow you to buy the type of play that you are interested in, without being forced to go "All-Access"...

 

With today being Thanksgiving...and many of you not being around in the Forums...I have decided to start this on Saturday, especially since Friday's schedule is different than any other day...due to the rare NCAAFB being played...

I will make sure to check in over the next 48hrs...to answer any questions that you may have...But I really don't think any of this will confuse you guys, and instead...I'm sure you will be happy that I finally decided to do this, after so many have asked for it...

Thanks again for all your support fellas, and best of luck...Vegas-Runner

  • VR has worked hard to make this as customer friendly as possible . . . any questions?

  • Bill respecting your plays by not tweeting as before he left a few days.  Those plays are $$$$.  Will do whatever to get them.  Following strictly you & Bbill.  All i need.  Nice Sat. btw :-)

  • Thank you so much. The Pod casts and true steam have helped me so much.

  • Vegas runner, your money again, thanks for the Auburn pick, I'm cashing in again!

    The podcast is the best thing running!

  • VR- good stuff, real good stuff!

    will you rate the Bookie play? or just give them to us as is? i am assuming if most come from bill then we just flat bet it as bill says "always bet like a slick"

    THANKS FOR THIS BLOG---looking forward to it!!!

  • VR- This just shows that you are a Class Act.  I'm not sure if RJ showed you my post from last Saturday on the Forums, but this will really help out people like myself who work crazy schedules.

    Thanks again,

    London

  • Thanks Ssamurai...And I really think that this was the least I could do for my Daily Guys, who have always shown support...To try and save them some money, like I do my Subscribers...But more importantly,give them Options..

    Because like you just said...right now, I've been cold...and they should have the opportunity to choose those bets that they feel confident in following or even fading...As opposed to making them purchase "All-Access" and be forced to get all the plays...

    I just think that in this internet age...this industry needs to listen to the clients and not just follow what those before us did...And in this internet age, TRANSPARENCY is respected, because bettors like yourself are so much more sophisticated...

    Best of Luck and Thanks again...VR

    Let's turn this ship around and get back on the course we were on prior to this week...VR

  • Wow, I have and will pay for all access, even though you appear to be in a funk since I paid up, but transparency can only be a good thing, I for one would pay for Bills picks alone, and yours too slick. So to be able to purchase them both with a garauntee if theres no Bookie play I don't pay, then even better.

    BTW your can use that tag line! "No Bookie play? Then don't pay!".  Bet you can't guess what I did for a living, scratch that, reckon you can!

    Will you still grade them 2*, 3* ect ect....
