#BettingPeople: ANTHONY KAMINSKAS

#BettingPeople: ANTHONY KAMINSKAS Anthony started his career working for bookmakers, latterly Paddy Power but he soon picked up that there were people out there beating the book. He learned from them and followed them in, amassing a tank of £250,000 to go to war with as a professional punter. He’s not looked back and certainly takes no prisoners….. Meeting Anthony Kaminskas with Simon Nott.


ANTHONY KAMINSKAS  (part 1 of 4)

Professional gambler Anthony talks about his beginnings in the ‘game’, working for Paddy Power and having his eyes opened that there were people out there that beat the bookies. His punting earnings started to eclipse the money he was earning, so he decided to go it alone as a professional punter. How does he feel about being described as ‘ruthless’ and more.


ANTHONY KAMINSKAS  (part 2 of 4)

Anthony explains that he was always looking for inefficiencies in markets. How he thinks he can beat the maths guys who have largely taken over from ‘proper traders’ working for bookmakers. Finding the edges that are all over if you know where to look for them, some of them just in the mathematics. How the market caught up with his horseracing activities just as they were hitting a losing streak.


ANTHONY KAMINSKAS  (part 3 of 4)

Anthony talks about betting exchanges, bookmakers who do their best not to pay when punters win and how a lot of firms have gotten away with a lot with their appalling practices. Why billionaire bookmakers should have proper risk management in place. Specialising in the English and Irish Greyhound Derbies and concentrating on sports where you can still get money on.

How some professional gamblers suffer from stress, Anthony has an issue with ‘problem winning’ and being unable to switch off from trying to be on top of everything. How he enjoys ‘giving a little back’ and unwinding with his family. He talks about ‘AK Betting’ , his new bookmaking firm betting on course in Ireland and plenty more.
