#BettingPeople Interview ROGER BROOKE Professional Greyhound Punter 2/3
Gambling Commission Failing Consumers?
Greyhound pro-punter Roger Brooke first went greyhound racing when he was 12 years old. The sport became a huge passion for him and also led him into a life as a punter and bookmaker. Affectionately known as ‘Fat Roger’, in this three part interview, he tells Julie Collier that he would pitch himself against anyone when it comes to betting on dogs, why he should have made more money than he has and he recounts some of his wonderful memories in the sport he loves.
In part 2 Roger talks about his life as a professional punter and what it is that he thinks gives him the edge in finding winners. He makes money, but explains his downfalls when it comes to gambling and addresses whether or not he in fact has a gambling addiction. Roger also talks about how he deals with losing runs and why he believes betting firms overreact to small bets.
