if you are an amateur picker and not a pro, what makes you think that you can estimate your edge? or, better yet, what makes you think you have any edge at all? why not just flat bet all your stuff until you determine that you do have an edge, however small it might be, and then go from there?
obviously you can do what you want, but the unit/stars stuff that's so prevalent seems misleading. there are several pros who release an overwhelmingly high number of 2 and 3 star plays, to the point that they are far more common than 1 star plays. it's almost like everyone is playing by a different set of rules, which makes it very difficult to evaluate a particular capper (forum or pro). some release 2 and 3 star plays at an unbelievably high rate. can someone here explain why this is so?
all it does is inflate the results good or bad and it doesn't give a true representation of how well a capper is actually performing.
