Normally I'd be cheering for a guy who did this (as I do some sports betting myself), however...

* I don't believe he was down to his last $85,000 or would be stupid enough to put it all on one bet
* He's not a good guy -- all kinds of domestic abuse items, etc in his past

Never seems fair - the type of people who win the big lottery drawing, or in a case like this one here. It's always someone who's old and won't be able to spend it, already rich, and / or a jackass.

I say good for him. He made very risky bet but it ultimately paid off. Big time. Can't begrudge him for that.

Yep he appears to be a real POS.

A USA Today report published on Tuesday reveals court records detailing the criminal history of James Adducci, the 39-year-old man from La Crosse, Wis., who claimed his first bet on sports was an $85,000 bet on Tiger Woods winning the 2019 Masters, which cashed for $1.2 million.

The report describes Adducci pleading guilty to misdemeanor domestic abuse charges four times, on separate occasions ranging from 2009 to 2016, in a La Crosse County court. Court documents describe him as a "habitual offender" in his La Crosse hometown.

Other court records also reveal that Adducci pled guilty to other charges 12 times, including spending 30 days in jail for a second OWI arrest in 2015. Other charges included non-criminal disorderly conduct and jumping bail.

When contacted by USA Today, Adducci told the organization: “This has nothing to do with [winning the bet]."

"Everyone and their brother can go online and look up anything they want, and I don’t give a [expletive]," Adducci told USA Today. "Obviously, I had $85,000 to place toward a bet. I have the ability to make $1.2 million. When was the last time you did that? If you want to get personal, who the hell are you to call me and think you have anything to ask me about anything?"

Adducci also detailed to Golf Digest on Monday how his wife had agreed to let him place the bet, though USA Today investigated and could not find that he was married.

If he is the type to place $85,000 on a sports bet, he won't have that million very long. It will be gambled away rather quickly.

You might be on to something there, OWS....

He's BAAAAAAAACK
And he just threw away $100,000. Tiger will never win the Grand Slam, it's never been done. Tiger himself came close back in 2000, winning 3 of the 4 majors, but that was Tiger in his prime!

That 100k was just lit on fire. He would have been better off betting less but going one tournament at a time and rolling the win into the next. Less money upfront and bigger payoff if it hit
