LVRJ piece on "sports messenger bettors" (aka "runners")
As more people become familiar with Gaming the Game, generally, and the sociology of big-time professional gambling in particular, I'll try to post as much publicly-accessible and credible insights relating to this fascinating world as possible. For instance, the Las Vegas Review-Journal's John L. Smith wrote a piece recently on "sports messenger bettors" who are more commonly known within the gambling industry as "runners". Runners - who they are, how they are recruited and by whom, how they are paid, how they operate, the problems they cause for various parties, etc. - are discussed in detail in the new book.
