The only thorn last night was the stream not working

I spent a hour trying to figure out Espn+ and the stream when out at 7:00 PST. But the issue got figured out and learned that others were having the same issues. Goddamn Walt Disney, fix your streaming services!!!

8 units profit this week.
The decision bet on the McGregor fight was a long shot but worth a run at those odds.
Overall, a successful week

Impressed with Dustin.  he had a great game plan and it worked.  I wanted him to win but had my doubts at first.
