This one has been covered in the archives. To summarize, Bill Gates is #1.

I know Cloutier is pretty low on the list these days. I'm very interested in this since so many seem to be "into" other things gambling wise.

only the highest gamblers know the scores. this kind of data is unobtainable unless you are one of the few.

A respected poster once said Barry Greinstein, Ray Zee, Ted Forrest.

Not sure if anyone knows for sure, but I imagine these players are at the top.

It has to be sports gambler because it is the only form of gambling where you can set your own stakes.

Billy Walters is probably one of the biggies. There is a profile of him in the book Gambling Wizards. I thought he was basically out of sports betting and is now mostly a real estate/golf course guy. Chip Reese made a ton betting on baseball.

Who are the big sports gamblers these days? Alan Boston? I have no idea actually.
