DKNG - Fundamental DD Inside - DKNG

This is an example of fundamental DD that takes place at ‘smart’ money institutions based on my professional experience in IBD, Private Equity & most recently at a HF (mods can message me for proof). Not thoroughly fleshed out b/c you autists have limited attention spans, but a summary. Figured I’d take the time to give back to this community that has provided many lolz, & should be a good measuring stick when evaluating other forms of fundamental DD posted here.
NFA.
DKNG - DraftKings, Inc.: vertically integrated US mobile betting operator that also provides retail sports betting & back-end betting solutions through SBTech. Think of SBTech as the tech ‘market-maker’ for traditional sports betting, they do all the funny math to set the betting odds & seem to be working on back-end solutions for DKNG Casino
The Big Picture
Only ~2% of the ~$90Bn gambling revenues were placed online which is the lowest in the world where betting online is legal. For example, in other countries online gaming activity represents ~6% - ~52% of total gambling revenues, with ~12% being the average.
Wall Street expects online gaming revenue to be $20Bn-$40Bn within the next 10 years. For this to be achieved, the online gambling market will have to achieve a ~30% penetration rate on total country gaming revenues. There is an expectation that this is could be easily achievable given penetration trends overseas - see page 11 of this: https://s1.rationalcdn.com/vendors/stars-group/documents/presentations/TSG-Investor-Day_March-27-2019.pdf
Other catalysts include increasing adaptation of sports betting in more states. States that have both legal sports betting + online sports betting permitted: NV, NJ, WV, PA, IA. Sports betting permitted but no online: DE, MS, RI, MO, AR. Prior to COVID there was ongoing discussions across many States, especially ones with growing deficits to explore how permitting sports betting could create a fresh avenue of tax dollars. Post COVID there is an expectation that these discussions will be given extra focus as many States will be hungry for incremental tax dollars. Important to note that currently 43/50 States allow DFS, but given the small share DFS has on total Gaming Revenues, it increasingly looks like DKNG is banking on traditional sports betting for a variety of reasons, more later. There are entire articles on Google arguing this catalyst so I’ll end this here.
Digging Deeper
DKNG’s main offerings are Daily Fantasy Sports (“DFS”) products & traditional sports book products to its clients. Long story short, a metric to look for in my opinion (that is curiously not reported by management or remarked on) is the hold % in traditional gaming sector parlance or the ‘rake’ & compare it to the ‘traditional’ gaming products like sports betting & Blackjack.
For DFS: DKNG takes ~15% of the prize pool (note: used to be ~6-11% [2]). Curiously, their main competitor FanDuel also has moved up to a ~15% rake recently. Google searches show the smaller competitors have a rake in the ~13% range.
This ‘rake’ has grown ~2x in 6 years, but it has been a delicate move on behalf of management. Why? B/c the more ‘sophisticated’ DFS players (equal to autistic day traders on Robinhood) have noted this increase & based on some Googling, some have moved down market to the smaller players. As a side note, many live casino games have their rules altered to grow the Hold %. For example, Blackjack games with 6:5 payouts on 21 have materially higher Hold % than the traditional BJ rules that pay out 3:2. Given the findings so far, DKNG may not have much room to materially increase its hold % in DFS games in the near-term from current of 15%. More on this later.
Now why the fuck is this important? This is important b/c the typical sports book (ex-Parlays) have a ~5% hold %/rake. Parlays have up to a ~30% hold (which is why it’s commonly known as the sucker’s bet), & just for reference, the average Blackjack table clocks in 14.5%. What this means: Every dollar put into these games, the “House” or DKNG, will take 15% of your money for DFS games, for sports bets they will be pocketing ~5%, up to ~30% if you’re into parlays, & we’ll just use the standard 14.5% BJ hold for the DraftKings Casino platform.
So why the acquisition of SBTech & a foray into the traditional sports gambling market? As you can see previously, the illegal sports betting market is >30x the size of the current daily fantasy sports market. So it’s clear that the DFS providers including DKNG are foraying into the space to capture this user base & hopefully convert them into games that have a higher hold %, such as DFS/DKNG Casino.
As of May 2020, DKNG has achieved a 30% penetration rate on its ~4mm ‘monetized’ DFS clientele to its Online Sports Book (OSB), from the OSB+DFS clientele, DKNG has converted 50% into its DraftKings Casino platform.
Including non-monetized users, user base totals at 12mm. Based on these unit economics: every 1mm of additional users -> 333k monetized users for DFS -> 100k users for OSB -> 50k users for DraftKings Casino.
Some Numbers – Italicized/Bolded the important
Numbers that represent Risks to Long Thesis
Things to look for when going Long
- Progress of additional States legalizing sports betting – specifically, States with DFS already legalized
- Cost structure evolving to a more fixed mix vs. the mostly variable mix currently as this will be the forward figure that determines profitability
- Increasing User Base (Curr.: 12mm) -> Monetized Base (Curr.: 4mm) -> MUP (1Q’20: 0.7mm)
Share Price Target
Given the cost structure of the company, I’m going to base the price targets around Enterprise Value / Revenues (driven by MUPs & ARPUs).
Bear Case MUP: 5mm -> $20.32 - $45.73
Base Case MUP: 5.5mm -> $22.27 - $50.10
Bull Case MUP: 6mm -> $24.21 - $54.47
These MUPs imply a monetized customer base of 28mm – 33mm. At the high-end, this implies that DKNG monetized customer base will equal MGM’s current total user base.
At yesterday’s close of $43.70, DKNG is trading at 3.5x – 4.5x forward Revenues on an expected >5,000 MUPs.
Share Price drivers / considerations:
- Continued multiple expansion
- MUP Growth exceeding beyond targets
Management Team
Jason Robins, 39 – Co-Founder & CEO. Duke BA, started DraftKings from day 1 in 2011. The 2 other buddies he started the Company with are still at DKNG. Dude navigated the Company through the scandal that rocked them in ’15 & ’16, and was the trailblazer in getting DFS labeled as a non-gambling product that enabled it to open in States without a gaming designation. This shit is the stuff that gets people in history books. His accomplishments make him seem like a very competent guy. Has 3 kids now, and only ~3% economic ownership in DKNG but has 90% of the voting power through his Class B share ownership. Also he actively participates in venture investments, sitting on 10 boards.
His comp plan performance bonus target is pretty murky, but main drivers are EPS growth, revenue growth, then a bunch of margin & return metrics, along with share price returns. Overall, very open-ended & it’s safe to say as long as shit doesn’t hit the fan, he will be eligible for his max payouts year over year. I’m assuming the lawyers tried to encompass everything possible for maximum flexibility to justify him earning his max comp as long as DKNG is still around.
Since he’s got voting control of 90%, I’ll end the specific-person overview here, but want to note that they have a very bloated C-suite. 12 folks at DKNG, 8 folks at SBTech, all with C-suite designations. Whereas their main competitor FanDuel, has 3 guys with a C-suite designations & 1 EVP, but is a sub under a larger ParentCo that has its own management team of ~5 guys.
Looking through glassdoor you can see the biggest complaint among employees giving bad reviews is based on management, all of the specific issues they point out IMO are a result of a top-heavy company. Seems like a good starting point to optimize their cost structure, but given Robins' history of sticking this entire thing through with his co-founders since '11 stuff like this doesn't seem to be a part of his playbook. They’re a public company now though, so it’s going to be interesting to see going forward.
TL;DR:
If I were to initiate a position in DKNG, the stock would have to fall to the $35-$37 range for me to be a buyer of the stock, and based on this rough intro analysis I'll be considering Put options if it breaches $50. I would not touch Calls at this level.

DraftKings CEO Sees Potential Growth in In-Game Betting

DraftKings CEO Jason Robins says the company is developing more in-game betting opportunities for users of the company’s popular sports wagering website, calling it “our No. 1 focus from a product perspective.”
“In the U.K., in-game is about 75% of the revenues at sports books and here’s it’s much lower,” Robins tells Barron’s. “You can bet on almost anything in an EPL (English Premier League soccer) game including who will get the next yellow card. Arguably, U.S. sports like baseball are better built for this because of the stoppage in play.”
“Think about baseball, there is so much opportunity to make prop bets,” Robins says, referring to wagers unrelated to the outcome of the game. Outside the U.S., tennis is popular for in-game wagering. “People are betting on every point. It’s literally at that level,” Robins says.
Viewers of the charity pro-am golf match on Sunday between the team of Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady got a chance to see DraftKings in-match odds onscreen during the broadcast. DraftKings (ticker: DKNG) offered betting on the individual holes and the overall match, which was narrowly won by Woods and Manning.
The match was the biggest golf event ever for DraftKings, doubling its previous top handle, a company spokesman said Tuesday. The in-game betting was a major factor, and golf is well-suited to it.
Shares of DraftKings were up more than 3%, at $30.08, at midday on Tuesday. The stock has surged about 70% since April, valuing DraftKings at $10 billion, behind only Las Vegas Sands (LVS) in the U.S. gambling sector.

Now, this big-hitter has arrived to a new online casino continent and competitors like Spin Casino and 21.com Casino are paying attention. We’re glad to have it, thanks to LeoVegas’ mobile casino, which is as good as they come for Canadian online gaming available.

100% up to $300 sports betting bonus

This sports betting welcome bonus is simple: Leo Vegas Casino will match your first deposit up to $300. This is also one of the best betting bonuses around for Canadians and gives a flying start for players wagering, for example, NHL, Premier League, NFL, or NBA. By the way, this LeoVegas sports bonus is available only to Canadian residents, so we’re in luck.
On top of a fabulous mobile offering, LeoVegas dishes out lavish bonuses for new Canadian customers. They offer a four-stage deposit bonus loyalty program.

Wagering requirements

As they always do at online gambling, LeoVegas’ bonuses come with a wagering requirement. However, for Canadian customers, the wagering minimum is only 25x.
Playing popular games at Leovegas, this wagering requirement means that you need to wager your bonuses 25 times using your bonus funds before you can withdraw the bonus or any winnings. Some casinos offer no wagering free spins, but they are not comparable for LeoVegas deposit bonus.

Restricted Games

You can play the bonus for the full amount in any classic slot or jackpot slot games. Classic slots or video slots give you the best chance to wager your bonuses. However, note that in table games such as Blackjack and Roulette, the bonus contributions are only 10%, so we do not recommend playing those table games with your bonus money.
LeoVegas is lax with its bonuses when it comes to minimum deposits. Casino players don’t need to aim anywhere near the maximum bonus amount to receive the extra free spins. Leovegas offers are unique as many other casinos limit your real-money free spin winnings to $20. The only requirement you need to clear before cashing out is 25x wagering.

Playing at Leo Vegas Canada

Games provided by LeoVegas includes a variety of option for online players. Leo Vegas combines an excellent mobile gambling experience with a massive variety of slot machines and other casino games. LeoVegas Sportsbook and live casino offer additional opportunities for Canadian online players.
LeoVegas was the very first online casino to go mobile. It launched in a cellphone-friendly format years ago and has only improved since – even sporting its gambling app. It doesn’t matter if you play with Android or Apple iPhone (or tablets, like iPad), you’ll always receive a top-notch gaming experience whether you have a super-expensive top-of-the-line iPhone or cheapo Android matters surprisingly little. The games run smoothly on any device, and navigating the site is easy.

Game Providers

Leo Vegas does not create casino games; they simply have games from various software providers. Top gaming providers such as NetEnt, Microgaming, NextGen, Evolution Gaming, IGT, Play’n Go, and other 34 developers. There have included some smaller-name casino software providers like QuickSpin, Thunderkick, and Yggdrasil. While not as famous as something like Microgaming or the mighty NetEnt, these companies have excellent mobile slots that you need to try.
Play a spin or two (or a few hundred) of Big Bad Wolf, and you’ll find out why we recommend games by these three companies. LeoVegas has some of those legendary slots (Mega Fortune, Mega Moolah and Mega Moolah Isis) with massive progressive jackpots as well. Video poker and table games haven’t been forgotten either-or ‘normal’ jackpot games.

Leo Vegas Sportsbook

Leo Vegas has a Canada-friendly sportsbook where you can bet on all your favourite sports.
LeoVegas hasn’t been in the betting business for long, but it’s already making an impact in Canada. While the LeoVegas Sportbook section doesn’t have quite the same selection of leagues and events as Betway, it does have Leo Vegas’ signature touch: it’s supremely mobile friendly. Betting with your cell phone or tablet is a pleasure, as Leo’s sportsbook is noticeably fast. This is something we’re still not experiencing across the board in 2020!
It’s beyond comprehension how mobile sportsbooks are so slow on many gambling sites, but LeoVegas is a welcome exception to this rule. The quickness matters with live betting especially, now you don’t miss a critical in-play bet just because the website was still loading. You can find a comprehensive array of Canadian sports and divisions at LeoVegas. You can naturally place a bet in the NHL, CFL, UFC, or other big leagues, but they also offer more marginal sports such as horse racing, cycling, or even surfing.

Leo Vegas Game Providers

Evolution Gaming and Authentic Gaming power the casino lobby at LeoVegas casino website. Game selection is one of the best in the industry. LeoVegas has games from all the best software providers. They have options for everyone. NetEnt fanatics will find Starburst and Creature from the Black Lagoon. You’ll also find classic slot machines like Jackpot 6000 and Mega Joker, Cosmic Fortune, and of course legendary progressive jackpot slots such as Book of Dead and Mega Moolah Isis.
LeoVegas also has feature buy slots avaible. This slot game feature allows you to buy straight into a free spins bonus round. Most of the Megaways slots have bonus buy feature. Money Train (Relax Gaming) and Fat Santa (Push Gaming) slots are also popular feature buy slots you can play at Leo Vegas.
Live dealer games section has a red dog, Live Casino Hold ’em, VIP Blackjack, Caribbean Stud Poker, along with the usual suspects.

Deposits and Withdrawal

Leo Vegas Casino has a lot of payment options to choose from. They have all the most often used bank transfers for Canadians (bank wire transfer, Interac, iDebit, Visa, Mastercard). Also, deposits are instant with every payment method, and withdrawals are relatively quick for all the payment methods. Also, Casino LeoVegas is not a PayPal casino.
However, you’re not able to deposit with cryptocurrencies at LeoVegas Casino. If you want crypto money deposit options, Bitstarz is the best online casino for that. What’s best, we have an Bitstarz bonus promotion for Canadian online players.

Leo Vegas Casino Review

If you like mobile casino games, Leo Vegas is the best online casino for you. LeoVegas Casino reviews online can be misleading, so please make sure you only trust credible sources like Bonus.ca.

Leo Vegas – King of Mobile Casinos

Leo Vegas has from the start concentrated on mobile online gambling. You can play all its top casino games on modern mobile devices. Supported devices include all iPhones and iPads, as well as Android phones and tablets. Even Blackberry and Windows phones and tablets are ok. For Android, there’s an optional LeoVegas mobile casino app for mobile gaming. Other than that, there’s no need for casino apps to jump into action on LeoVegas mobile devices.

Leo Vegas Mobile App

You don’t need an app to play.. So, if you have an iPhone, you simply gamble at Leo Vegas’ website. For Android phones and tablets, LeoVegas has an optional app you can download by following instructions you’ll find after registering at the Leovegas mobile casino. However, most players skip downloading the app. It’s a bit cumbersome as it requires changing a couple of Android’s standard settings. Especially as playing on a mobile device works equally well.
Usually, our bonus experts stay with one mobile casino for a couple of days to find out whether there are kinks in the mobile experience. But, we realized LeoVegas is pretty damn good when we noticed our experts had had accounts at LeoVegas for months. The draw here is that besides being technically perfect for Android and Apple devices, the mobile casino has big promotions for existing players. These promos are bound to make you pop back to Leo to play your free spins and other real money casino bonuses.

  • [NJPW] We start this week with one of the strangest matches in wrestling history, the Antonio Inoki vs. Masa Saito match on the empty island of Ganryujima on October 4. This is New Japan’s take on the Funk/Lawler empty arena match, and legend has it that the island is where samurai warriors would fight to the death. They had a ring set up and two tents for the competitors, and the only other people present were reporters and the camera crew. It was supposed to start at sunrise, and Saito came out twice with Inoki nowhere to be seen. At 4 pm, Saito came out one more time and Inoki jumped out of the jungle to ambush him and start the match. The official report is that Inoki won after 2 hours, 5 minutes, 14 seconds when Kotetsu Yamamoto (who does color commentary for the tv show) stopped the fight when Saito was put out with a sleeper. About 30 minutes of the match aired the next night, and apparently the actual length was something around 45 minutes total and mostly restholds. Photos of the match were all over the newspapers in Japan. What’s curious here is that Inoki and Saito have had three previous matches which drew among the biggest gates in wrestling history (two in the $400,000 range and one near $700,000), but this was purely to get tv ratings and put Inoki above Choshi in the minds of fans. It aired as part of a two-hour special featuring Choshu’s return to tv, and Dave hopes to have details of the show and ratings (very important here, as New Japan’s tv ratings are dangerously low as far as the network is concerned) next week.
  • New Japan isn’t the only company that had a wild brawl this week. Memphis and UWF both put big matches on as well. First, Chris Adams and Sting fought Eddie Gilbert and Terry Taylor in the concession stands in the “Battle of New Orleans.” It’s the best thing Dave’s seen on tv in months and the kind of thing people will remember for years. Memphis offered Jerry Lawler and Bill Dundee vs. Carl Fergie and Don Bass with Brickhouse Brown. This one was mostly backstage for tv purposes, though that meant the lighting was bad and it didn’t come off as well as it could have. They still brawled for nearly twenty minutes, starting on the stage and heading back to the dressing room, and all five guys were covered in ice, beer, mustard, and blood by the end, with Lawler giving Fergie a swirly as the climax. Both brawls are must see.
Watch: from the Battle of New Orleans
  • WWF has announced the line-up for their November 11 Saturday Night’s Main Event taping. Hogan will face Bundy, with Andre in Bundy’s corner. Randy Savage will face Bret Hart in what should be an excellent match, given the network factor. Bam Bam vs. Hercules, Hillbilly Jim vs. Ted DiBiase, Duggan vs. Race, and Steele vs. Danny Davis (this last Dave hopes does not get taped). The show will proobably air on November 21 to help promote Survivor Series.
  • JCP has pulled a big surprise out of their hat by booking the Nassau Coliseum for a show the day before Thanksgiving. After getting tv in the area, it’s only been a matter of time before Crockett started putting shows on in the area, but most expected the first such show to happen in early 1988. There’s little doubt they’ll do big business for their first show there, but long-term success is more questionable. To help push the show over the top, they’re doing WarGames IV with Garvin/Windham/Rock’n’Roll Express vs. Arn/Tully/Bubba/Midnight Express. They’ll also have FlaiLuger vs. Road Warriors, Nikita Koloff vs. Eddie Gilbert in a Texas Death match, Steve Williams defending the UWF Title against Rick Steiner, and more.
  • In terms of Starrcade, JCP has announced one match officially on tv this weekend for the show: Steve Williams vs. Barry Windham for the UWF Title. They also announced that Starrcade will be available in “more than 100” closed-circuit locations. The announcement said the show would be Thanksgiving night, but mentioned no start time. Dave repeats what you’ve already read over the past few issues about the start time stuff and how that’s to make sure there’s no overlap, and how WWF has basically knocked Starrcade off the majority of potential ppv homes. With several companies offering Starrcade on ppv, though, it’s too late to change the time back to the evening. By the time the issue reaches readers, two more matches will have been announced: Flair challenging Garvin for the NWA World Title in a no dq cage match and Koloff vs. Taylor to unify the UWF and NWA TV Titles. TV seems to be building toward Dusty vs. Lex and Tully/Arn vs. Road Warriors, with the latter probably for the NWA Tag Titles. On the plus side, the Chicago card being aired via satellite will limit it to three hours, so that card will only have 7 matches which should let them develop for longer, rather than having 12 matches with most being limited in length. JCP will also run events in Greensboro and New Orleans for NWA and UWF, respectively, with each of those events having four or five matches and live broadcast of Starrcade from Chicago.
  • JCP and WWF will also be changing up their schedules in the coming months. WWF will drop one city per night on weeknights, so Dave believes they’ll be doing two shows a night Monday-Thursday, making up for it with double shots on Saturday and Sunday for three crews each working two shows a day on the weekend. JCP also looks like they’ll be dropping down to two shows a night rather than three which has been their norm lately. Theoretically fewer shows should let the wrestlers rest more and lead to stronger line-ups. It also means the guys lower on the card will get fewer dates and make less money. If the smaller promotions were in the position to offer good money to those guys, they could alleviate some of their talent woes, but that’s not likely to happen. AWA/WCCW/Memphis may get some workers, though, and they need them. The cutback on live shows also reveals something that’s been obvious to readers lately - the live side of the business in this country is at its worst level in years. This was inevitable for the smaller promotions due to the unwinnable battle they have against the JCP/WWF juggernauts. But, WWF has also been having unimpressive attendance (in all but a few hot towns - New York, Boston, Toronto, a couple others), particularly where Hogan is absent. JCP doesn’t have a Hogan (Flair and Road Warriors are their closest), so this change had better help rekindle fan interest.
  • With Starrcade certainly to be less of a big deal than JCP were initially projecting, it looks like they’ll be getting their second chance on January 24. There won’t be any ppv competition from WWF, as they’ll be in full Wrestlemania hype mode, so JCP ought to be available in several million potential homes and could potentially make a lot of money. They’ll be running out of Vegas or Nassau Coliseum. If the latter, expect the war between WWF and JCP to intensify.
  • The Crockett family sold their minor league baseball team, the Charlotte Orioles, this past week. Dave was told around a year ago they were looking to get out of baseball and focus only on wrestling, so this shouldn’t be taken as a sign of trouble for the promotion. Some trivia about the team: Francis Crockett, sister of Jim Jr. and David, was the general manager of the team and named Minor League Executive of the Year at one point by The Sporting News. Tony Schiavone also started out as the play-by-play guy for the team’s games before getting brought over to wrestling.
  • [All Japan] Bruiser Brody’s first match back was against Tiger Mask II on the October 6 show at Budokan Hall. He destroyed Tiger Mask, then interfered in the main event between Jumbo Tsruruta and Tenryu, attacking both men. Tsuruta got hit first, so he won by disqualification. Both men seem to smell money in a Brody feud, so they both want first crack. No confirmation on Brody’s status has been forthcoming, but given he’s in this position, it seems likely he will be back, probably in the tag tournament in December.
  • Owen Hart returned to Stampede on October 2, coming to the rescue of Johnny Smith. Due to the Canadian postal workers strike, reports from Stampede may be sketchy for the next few weeks.
  • Official word on the relationship between Memphis and the AWA is still nowhere to be found. The rumors have been swirling, though, so I’d expect something soon.
  • [Memphis] Rocky Johnson is being played down on cards, but still allowed to work while the case against him gets sorted out. Johnson was accused of rape last week, but the woman leveling the accusation has changed her story three times since then so it’s likely he’ll come out in the clear, legally. They had been building a feud between him and their Bubba when Bubba hit Johnson over the head with his ghetto blaster (a la Buck Zumhofe) and broke the radio.
  • Bob Geigel has officially pulled Central States out of the NWA and is dropping all NWA naming, forming his own national alliance called the World Wrestling Alliance. The WWA will crown a world champion in January. With such illustrious contenders as Rufus Jones, Rip Rogers, Bob Geigel, Earthquake Ferris, and Porkchop Cash, this will surely be the premier championship recognized the world over. Supposedly Memphis, Deep South (Georgia), and Continental (Alabama) will be part of the WWA, but with Memphis seeming to be solidly in bed with AWA, don’t count on that to be accurate.
  • AWA is going to crown a TV champion with a very convoluted tournament. There’s a whole points system: if you win a match you get 5 points. If you lose, you lose 5 points. If you win by DQ or countout, you get 2.5 points. If you lose by DQ or countout, you lose 2.5 points. First wrestler to 50 points wins the title.
  • AWA are also planning a tournament for the women’s title on November 28 in Las Vegas. There’s talk that they might give the title to Wendi Richter if they can get her in, but Madusa is the safe bet.
  • [WCCW] In pushing the October 17 Cotton Bowl show, Fritz Von Erich did an interview with Kevin, Kerry, and his granddaughter (I give you the official WON debut of Lacey Von Erich). Fritz said that his family has been up (clips of Kerry beating Flair in Texas Stadium) and down, and basically admitted the promotion has been in a slump. He promised to bring back the good old days and said the family would get back up again. Dave says the good old days won’t come back unless Fritz opens his wallet to pay for talent. I’d just like to point out the ego it takes to conflate the promotion with his family and try to make this about himself.
  • The Crocketts will be changing the UWF taping format again either this coming weekend or the next. Everyone agreed that the new format sucked, so they’re trying to fix things up and make it a bit more like a WWF taping where it won’t just be matches for the show, but additional matches for other programs. All the top names from both NWA and UWF will be present, just like how WWF does it.
  • Last week Dave reported WWF was leaving Denver, and he reported an attendance at their last show there of 1,200. In a correction, Dave tells us the number was closer to 1,500, but the paid attendance was only 700. JCP only drew 600 on October 10, so Denver seems like a disaster for everyone right now.
  • [JCP] Hiro Matsuda showed up at the tv taping on October 6 as the “master of the Japanese sleeper hold." He’s 49, but has great conditioning, and he put referee Tommy Young to sleep in a demonstration, then refused to revive him and put Johnny Weaver to sleep when Weaver tried to wake him. Dusty came out to make the save. Matsuda trained Luger (not something to brag about, but something they can use for the angle). It’d be logical, since Rhodes has put Luger to sleep in the past, for Matsuda to teach Luger the sleeper for Starrcade. That would give both guys a way to get heat in a match that will mostly be rest holds.
Watch: Hiro Matsuda demonstrates the Oriental Sleeper Hold
  • Dave says the Road Warriors are great, but their influence on the business has been bad. They have an excellent gimmick and they play their role well, and as long as you don’t mind no-selling they’re fine in the ring. But looking at guys like Petrov, the Kodiaks, Dingo Warrior, Warlord, Nord the Barbarian, things look dire. They all come in with the idea that you just have to be a musclebound meathead who doesn’t sell and doesn’t know how to work and you’ll get over. On the plus side for the Kodiaks, they’re young and aggressive and maybe they’ll get better by improving.
  • Not a lot of details from the last WWF tv taping, but they did an angle to set up Duggan/Race. Duggan stole the cape and crown from Race, then later Race and Heenan beat Duggan up with the 2x4. Dave hopes they don’t try to put this as the headliner for any towns.
  • WWF is making their drug testing a weekly thing now.
  • At the latest taping were Nick Bockwinkel, Boris Zhukov, Sheik Adnan al-Kaissey, and Princess Jasmine. Bockwinkel is through with the AWA and is in WWF as an agent, while Zhukov is now teaming with Nikolai Volkoff. Sheik Adnan was looking for a job, and Jasmine is probably going to get added to the Survivor Series match fro the women.
  • The Princess’ [sic] Bride (Dave is so much closer to getting the title right this week) opened in theaters to excellent reviews. Andre is getting great reviews for his performance as well, with Joseph Gelmis of Newsday magazine calling him “wonderful, lovable and a natural comedian.”
Watch: The cast and crew of The Princess Bride reminisce about Andre
  • WWF plans to run several shows in Chicago in November to combat Starrcade, all of them with Hogan. The first will be November 1.
  • Ricky Steamboat has been pulled from all his currently announced WWF appearances. No reason known.
  • A letter writer asks why Chavo Guerrero, Sam Houston, and Dingo Warrior never show up on tv. Dave explains they have their “C” team, which is like a farm team or developmental team of guys they want to potentially push in the future but aren’t ready to push yet. Dingo and Houston are on that squad (as was Tom MaGee before he went to Europe to compete in strongman contests), and the idea is that they don’t get tv exposure so when they do get their gimmick and initial push, it’ll be like your first time seeing them. Dave thinks it’s a smart idea, especially with Dingo because if he ever improves enough to be passably bad at wrestling, his physique will carry him quite far into stardom. Houston has lots of talent, but WWF wants him to gain weight so he won’t look scrawny next to all the roid monsters. Dave expects both to get their big break soon. In the case of Chavo, he helps do commentary for their Spanish broadcasts, so it’s not likely he’ll work television, and he’s been on-again-off-again lately.
  • In comments that show how the culture has changed between 1987 and today, we get a letter from a reader who went to the first NWA show in Detroit. “I attended the NWA debut in Detroit and it was incredible. It had six title matches and there were only two matches on the card where you could watch the girls with your binoculars. It was three-and-a-half hours of excellence.” When you see a fly girl at the wrestling show, do the creep.
  • Another letter writer wants coverage of GLOW and complains there’s very little coverage of women’s wrestling. Dave says he actually gives very significant coverage of women’s wrestling, particularly Japanese women’s wrestling (I will note as the Rewinder that this “very significant coverage” is usually a small paragraph labeled “Japanese girls” and doesn’t actually give the name of either of the promotions, and there isn’t always coverage of them in each issue). Dave says if GLOW or POWW can show they can do business at live shows he’ll cover them.
  • Dave continues his award thoughts this week. For Tag Team of the Year, both versions of the Midnight Express (Eaton & Condrey, then Eaton & Lane) stand out above all other American teams. But Dave gives number one to Maeda and Takada. Lots of potential candidates for number three: Martel/Santana have been excellent, but haven’t been together long. The Hart Foundation are the most overrated team in wrestling (Bret’s a tremendous worker, but Jim Neidhart’s only talent is making faces). Tanaka/Diamond and Jarrett/Travis deserve consideration. The Road Warriors are popular and big draws. Dave thinks Rock & Roll Express deserve the number three spot. For Best Television Show, this is for weekly shows, so Saturday Night’s Main Event doesn’t count. WWF Superstars has great production. New Japan’s show has the best matches. Memphis has the best entertainment wrestling can deliver. Power Pro has lots of action, blood, and creativity. Dave gives New Japan, then Memphis, then Superstars the top three. For Worst Wrestler, Dave wants to clarify that rookies are ineligible. Although he looks out of place physically, Giant Baba still does more moves in a match than you’ll see in two WWF shows. Mike Von Erich was also out of place in the ring, but you knew he was trying hard. Dave figures Bob Geigel (age 63 and working full time), Dingo Warrior, Warlord, and Ivan Putski are good candidates and while Warlord and Dingo have only been around two years, Putski has been around two decades so “you’d think through osmosis something would penetrate his thick skull” (Rewinder note: ouch. Putski was my dad’s favorite growing up in the 60s and 70s). JYD, George Steele, and Outback Jack are also candidates. Dave really wants to pick JYD and hates not doing it, but he picks Putski.
  • Dave got a bunch of promotional material about Big John Studd and most of it is laughably false. There’s a claim that over 1 million John Studd action figures were sold in 1986. Only 3 million WWF action figures were sold in 1986, and half of them were Hogan. Studd’s Q rating (consumer popularity) is apparently a 47, higher than many other celebrities, such as Mr. T (a 17). Mr. T is among the most hated celebrities in the country, so this is meaningless. Studd has supposedly wrestled in front of over 70 million fans in the past year. Studd’s wrestled in front of the same number of people as Dave has in 1987 - 0. There’s also a claim he’s been on numerous nationally syndicated tv and radio shows. Sure, WWF is nationally syndicated, but that doesn’t really count. When was he on Donahue, Carson, or Oprah? Or radio?
  • Dave got a copy of the report for the Pennsylvania legislature regarding the athletic commission in Eastern Pennsylvania. The report recommends the state pass a wrestling act which would provide the commission no role in regulating wrestling. It would put some statutes into law, though. Every promoter would have to post a $10,000 bond to ensure that “only financially sound, reputable promoters” operate in the state. It would also require a physician present at all shows and an ambulance or paramedical unit present or on call at every match. Promoters would have to provide adequate security for all events, and blading would be banned. State tax on gates would be dropped from 5% to 2%, with the new figure still getting the state more money when figuring in the elimination of the costs the current way of doing things incurs.
  • Jerry Lawler and Bill Dundee won the AWA Tag Titles from Soldat Ustinov and Doug Somers on October 11. This further confirms the AWA/Memphis alliance.

Live sports book betting question

Going to Las Vegas in a month. Was looking to bet on Basketball and Baseball and XFL at a sports book there. I was wondering if I’ll be able to bet on things such as “Next Pitch is gunna be a strike”, “Next pitch will result in a out” “next play will result in first down” and stuff such as that.
I have friends who said they do have such live props and some who have said they don’t. Trying to find a general consensus.

How to Become a Better Gambler Today Pt2

3 – Manage Your Bankroll

If you’re going to take your gambling seriously and would like to do as well as possible, then you need to manage your bankroll. All too often you’ll hear stories of people losing everything at the casino or track. While this is tragic it can be easily avoided with some discipline and a sound bankroll management strategy.
To start with, you should set aside a fixed amount of money you’re going to use for gambling purposes. This should be separate from money you use in everyday life. If you wish to add or subtract from this you can do so, but it should be only in certain situations and based on time, not on the amount of money you have in your bankroll.
Once you’ve done this, you can then start to think about how much of your bankroll you’re willing to risk each session or game. For those who are keen poker players, you may have heard that 5% is the key percentage when it comes to game cost to bankroll ratio.
That is, you should never risk more than 5% of your bankroll in a single game. This is a good rule to live by and should ensure that you never go truly broke. This is if you’re playing poker, betting on horses or sports, or playing daily fantasy sports, and that you’re implementing solid and successful strategies in doing so. This is the key.
If you play a negative expectation game your bankroll will slowly diminish over time, and eventually you’ll have to re-fill it from other areas of income. This is fine, provided you’re playing for entertainments sake and understand that you’ll lose in the long run.
One more key thing you’ll need to do when managing your bankroll is keeping track of everything. You can do this through a spreadsheet on your computer, or even a diary. It’s basically like keeping a budget on what you’ve spent money on, where you’ve made money, and where you’ve lost it.
This way you’ll be able to better track your spending patterns and manage your bankroll more effectively.
Finally, if you’re a recreational gambler and head to Las Vegas or Atlantic City once a year, then you can also implement some bankroll management tactics. The best one to use on short trips is to identify in advance how much money you’re going to gamble.
Then you can divide this up by the number of days you’re in town to work out your daily allowance. Once you’ve done this place each day’s amount in its own envelope. When you arrive in Las Vegas or wherever you may be, place the envelopes in the safe and then use each one on the relevant day.
Once you’ve spent all of the day’s money then that’s it; no more gambling. If you stick to this method you’ll never spend more than you’re meant to and quite often you’ll end up winning each day, which makes things even nicer.

4 – Don’t Drink While You Gamble

While this may seem like a no brainer, it’s amazing how often people drink far too much alcohol while they’re gambling.
The result is always the same; they lose far more money and make much riskier bets because their usually sound decision making is influenced negatively by the drinks. Casinos know and understand this. That’s why you’ll get free drinks while you gamble in Las Vegas, and in some other casinos around the United States. Free drinks while gaming is much less common in other areas in the world.
I just want to be clear here; there’s nothing wrong in my opinion in having a few drinks while you play. It’s even OK to get seriously drunk and have a lot of fun from time to time.
The main thing you need to do is control your losses. If you’re going to drink a lot you need to set up a system, while sober, to protect yourself, from yourself.
Some strategies to do this include leaving your wallet and credit cards in the room safe and only taking a set amount of money out with you, or you could also give these to a trustworthy friend to look after for the evening. They must be able to resist your efforts to get them back later, because trust me; more often than not you’ll try.
Obviously if you only have a few drinks and have some good self control you should be able to still stay with it enough to not risk too much money and stay within your pre-prescribed parameters. If you want to become a good gambler then this is as far as you should go. If you want to drink and have fun, then leave the tables and do so in the bar or restaurant, and have your fun socializing with friends and family instead of through gambling.
Casinos in Las Vegas are starting to crack down on free loaders betting the minimum amount to get free drinks. Unfortunately this is starting to disengage some of their keen gamblers and drinkers. It’s a real shame they’re going down this path, for a variety of reasons. But it should help you to not get as intoxicated and lose as much at the tables.
One other thing I would note, is that if you do end up drinking a lot and losing far too much money, don’t beat yourself up about it. That won’t help anything and in all likelihood, it will take you even further down a bad path. If you try to take the fun out of it, and learn from the experience, you’ll be much better off in the future.

5 – Learn How to Play and Win at Poker

By far, the best game to play in any casino is poker and therefore most casinos only offer it as almost an amenity and not a money making game.
They do make money on poker but it’s only a small amount. Poker is the best game to play because you can win in the long term and you aren’t battling against the house in a game that’s designed to slowly take all your money.
In poker, and I’m mostly talking about Texas holdem, you play against other people and battle it out across the felt to take each other’s money. As a result, you can win in the long term if you have a solid strategy and continuously make positive expectation plays. I’ll go into detail on this a bit more later.
Because poker is largely skill based, you can ride out the good and bad luck that you’ll encounter in the short term to make money in the long term. Many thousands of people in the United States and across the world make money player poker.
The key of course, is to be better than other players so you must continuously be learning and training to have a sufficient edge over others so that you can win.
This is where positive expectation comes into it. To win in the long term every decision you make at the table must be made so that it results in profits and winning in the long term.
You can learn one of two strategies to do this. These are game theory optimal and exploitation. I’m not going to go into these here, but now you know them you can learn more. You can find literally thousands of poker books out there, but ultimately you need to log hours at the table and play thousands of hands to become better. Over time you’ll start winning and will come out on top in the long run, if you’re willing to put in the effort and have some natural people reading talent.
If you live in the United States you won’t be able to play poker online, unless you’re in one of the singular states that offers restricted poker rooms. If you are then you should try to hone your skills in small games online first. This way you can learn the game and will be much more confident the first time you sit down at the real felt.

Trump, Obelisks and Sin City

Trump, Obelisks and Sin City
I discovered this several months ago but since I have a lot of new members here since then, I need to go over it again. This goes along with my goal of gathering all the evidence I have for Trump being the Antichrist and it's highly relevant.
Trump loves gold, or at least making thing appear to be gold. Thats no secret. So why then are only one of his buildings this color and why is it shaped like an obelisk from the back view and lined up with a pyramid, sphinx and obelisk in Las Vegas, aka Sin City?

https://preview.redd.it/jw5mjj53miy31.jpg?width=1628&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f1aa32bf974357fb44786e8913d9722a11efeeff
https://preview.redd.it/cxbal5ufmiy31.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=46bb5335ae159f2fd84aa5bee7825593094d3d2e
https://preview.redd.it/qwu4j7hhuiy31.png?width=707&format=png&auto=webp&s=f15abdbe309c15d7b9e62c1955a7ef39125a0ed0
Obelisks originally represented the benben stone, the rock laid at the foundation of the beginning of the world, and the Benu bird (Egyptian phoenix) by proxy. It is also symbolically Osiris's golden phallus that was created by Isis after his brother Set chopped him up into 14 pieces and Isis found them all except that one so she made a dick out of gold and resurrected Osiris just long enough to impregnate her with Horus before he passed on and became god of the underworld. They were essentially boundary markers for Pharaohs, gods and their temples, erected in pairs. Situated perfectly to catch the sun light at just the right times to honor Ra, the sun god. So if they're erected in pairs, and Luxor Hotel and Casino only has one, where is the other one?

https://preview.redd.it/ln16gmk5miy31.jpg?width=2448&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cebd5ec41271414270a420f72efeb4a7db36829c

Looks strangely like an obelisk from the side view. Now before I go any further, I'm sure this might seem a little far fetchd to some of you. These correlations are merely coincidences (so far) and too much is being read into this. Well what if I told you Trump has another building shaped like an obelisk? One that is a mile away from an actual Egyptian obelisk. What if I told you that this obelisk is associated with an actual Egyptian Temple, called Luxor Temple. Lux is Latin for light.

https://preview.redd.it/4tom72kgtiy31.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7b2d49ab932ef00db824caeed04e3daa67fc01dd
In Luxor there are several great temples on the east and west banks. Four of the major mortuary temples visited by early travelers and tourists include the Temple of Seti I at Gurnah, the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahri, the Temple of Ramesses II (a.k.a. Ramesseum), and the Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu); the two primary cults temples on the east bank are known as the Karnak and Luxor. Unlike the other temples in Thebes, Luxor temple is not dedicated to a cult god or a deified version of the pharaoh in death. Instead Luxor temple is dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship; it may have been where many of the pharaohs of Egypt were crowned in reality or conceptually

It was dedicated to the REJUVENATION of KINGSHIP. Keep that in mind.

https://preview.redd.it/vdjzxugquiy31.jpg?width=1182&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5a3d53c81ea41bc22e3e100a95360f4f3adff00e

What obelisk and Trump building am I talking about? Trump Tower and 1 of the 4 Cleopatra's Needles is right down the street in Central Park. The other 3 are in London, Paris and Luxor Temple. London and the NY one are pairs. The one in Paris is the twin to the one in Luxor.

https://preview.redd.it/uesi2sm72ny31.jpg?width=1565&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d70ee7face2f0d66b148add2f9c7ea15dd511c3d

I wrote an article going in more depth about this and you can read that here, so I won't rehash much of it.

Made of red granite, the obelisk stands about 21 metres (69 ft) high, weighs about 200 tons, and is inscribed with Egyptian hieroglyphs. It was originally erected in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis) on the orders of Thutmose III, in 1475 BC. The granite was brought from the quarries of Aswan, near the first cataract of the Nile. The inscriptions were added about 200 years later by Ramesses II to commemorate his military victories. The obelisks were moved to Alexandria and set up in the Caesareum – a temple built by Cleopatra in honor of Mark Antony or Julius Caesar – by the Romans in 12 BC, during the reign of Augustus, but were toppled some time later. This had the fortuitous effect of burying their faces and so preserving most of the hieroglyphs from the effects of weathering.

Other than Cleopatra moving them to a temple she built in honor for the father of her child, they actually have no association with her. More on that later but here's some interesting gematria that involves Donald Trump, Mark Antony, Augustus and the Little Baron Trump.

https://preview.redd.it/iar0mmpauiy31.jpg?width=1776&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ca2cc62de3ce591d7ee6cb5b2412d53011950c84
It should be pointed out that his "real" name in the book, when Americanized would be William Henry Sebastian Trump. William and Henry being the names of the current children of Prince Charles. Sebastian being the Greek version of the title Augustus. Augustus being 828 in Strongs Concordance of the Greek in the New Testament of the Bible and being 888 in Jewish gematria. Donald J Trump is 888 and Both Donald Trump and Baron Trump are 828 in English Sumerian gematria. Since Baron is a title and in America we use first and last names when addressing someone, he might be called The Little Baron William Trump or just Baron William Trump. Which is the exact name (save for one extra "r") of Donald Trump's youngest son, Barron William Trump.

https://preview.redd.it/nqjvhsg5viy31.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e6341b9a46862e6de8134ec50354b1eff08b2072
And just to add the cherry on top. By now we all know the striking parallels of Back to the Future (mainly Part 2) and todays world. You can find an entire post I made about themhere. The most obvious being the Biff Tannen / Donald Trump similarities. In the second movie, 2015 Biff steals the time machine, goes back to 1955 and gives himself a sports almanac so he can get rich betting on the winners and never lose. This of course turns the regular timeline into a hellish nightmare ran by megarich and powerful Biff Tannen. Well when Biff steals the Time Machine, he takes a cab to its location. The name of the cab company? Luxor.

https://preview.redd.it/smn41d1auiy31.jpg?width=1748&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c1f97a8da29ebbe9daa3801bb926dff9ee1596c0

Yes thats an advertisement for a real cab company named Luxor. Although I doubt it was the inspiration behind the name of the company in the movie. This company has some odd connections to be made. The address, 6616, both numbers of the beast. 616 being the number given from the oldest available text.

http://www.luxorcab.com/luxor-history/
The company was founded in 1928. Trump would become elected president 88 years later in 2016. Trump = 88 in simple gematria.

https://i.redd.it/tpw7h1k9viy31.gif

Mention taxi cabs and the name Bill Lazar comes to mind – since 1948 Mr. Lazar has been associated with the industry. William G. Lazar was born in Gary, Indiana on January 7, 1918 to parents Jack and Alma joining a family of one brother, Herb and One sister, Mary Warner. After joining Luxor Cab Company in 1950, he became president eight years later.

He joined Luxor in 1950 and became president 8 years later, in 1958. 58 is one of the many numbers strongly correlated to Trump. He became the 58th inaugural president, 58 years after 1958. Trump Tower is 58 stories tall. Trump was 58 when he married Melania and the year the Apprentice debuted. The Trackdown episode that I broke down and posted recently aired in 1958. Just to name a few of the connections.

Why 58?
The number 58 was commonly associated with misfortune in many civilizations native to either Central America or Southern America. Due to their beliefs in the original 58 sins, the number came to symbolize curses and ill-luck. Aztec oracles supposedly stumbled across the number an unnaturally high number of times before disaster fell. One famous recording of this, though largely discredited as mere folktale, concerned the oracle of Moctezuma II, who allegedly counted 58 pieces of gold scattered before a sacrificial pit the day prior to the arrival of Hernán Cortés.
What makes this connection particularly bizarre is that Montezuma was mentioned in that Trackdown episode.

Montezuma is 119 in Jewish ordinal, just like Donald and Moteuczoma (variant spelling) is 828 in reverse English Sumerian.

William Lazar was a member of Star King Lodge #344; the San Francisco Press Club; Bill Moskovitz Luncheon Club; President of the American Assyrians, as well as President of the First Church of the East.

Star King Lodge? Obviously the man was a Mason and running a company named Luxor just attests to that. The Bible also refers to the great enemy (often thought to refer to the Antichrist) as the Assyrian.

Mary Adams Warner, who came to work for Luxor Cab as bookkeeper in 1962, was the only woman president of a major taxicab company when she served Luxor Cab from 1988 to 2000. Due to her caring, compassionate, and attentive listening, many drivers thought of her and still remember her as the mother figure of all taxicab drivers.

Trump has a sister also named Mary, its his mothers name as well. She became the only woman president of Luxor Cab Company in 1988. She was born in 1922. 22 = 11-11= 88 = H-K.

Enough Lux connections? How about the fact that Trump is known for his love of LUXury and his brand emphasizes that. Or that the makers of Dove Soap make another brand called Lux. Or that the actor who played Walter Trump in that Trackdown episode (Lawrence Dobkin) did work on a radio anthology series during the 1950s called Lux Radio Theater?

Back to Las Vegas

If you'll notice, I have a tendency to take images, split them in half and mirror them. This is one way the rulers of this planet hide their works. Even the Bible references this.

Isaiah 29
15 Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the LORD, who do their work in darkness and think, "Who sees us? Who will know?"
16 You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, "You did not make me"? Can the pot say to the potter, "You know nothing"?

When Hermes was born, he stole some of Apollo's (his brother) cattle and made them walk backwards to hide their tracks. We're the cattle. So Trumps building is a golden obelisk lined up with the Luxor obelisk in Las Vegas and obelisks represent Osiris golden phallus which was used to impregnate Isis who would give birth to Horus. Pharaohs were thought of as living god kings. In fact, God King = Pharaoh in 12 different types of gematria which I don't even know if there are another 2 words that exist that match that well. (Donald Trump and Lapis Lazuli comes close at 8 matches). Each Pharaoh in Ancient Egypt was considered to be Horus and essentially a messenger of the gods (just like Hermes) and in death, became associated with Osiris. So what happens when you go on Google Maps and mirror the overhead view of Trump's golden Hotel in Las Vegas? The Egyptian god Horus seems to appear.

When mirroring something, you're essentially creating a backwards copy of it and laying them both side by side. So mirroring Trumps building means creating a 2nd building right next to it. Well that is exactly what Trump originally planned to do.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump_...s#Second_tower
In April 2007, the second tower was the subject of an episode of The Apprentice in which the show's candidates were tasked with creating a marketing program for the new tower. Condo units for the tower went on sale the next day. Trump said the tower would be nearly identical to the first tower, and would also include 1,282 units. Because of rising construction expenses, the second tower was expected to cost $625 million, which would have brought the total cost of Trump International Hotel and Tower to $1.1 billion. This number was later reported to be $1.2 billion in February 2008, at which point the second tower was expected to begin construction at the end of the year.
In April 2008, Trump said he had not decided on a start date for the second tower, choosing to wait until all sales had closed on the first tower's rooms. At that time, reservations were still being accepted for the second tower's units.The second tower was ultimately put on hold because of bad credit markets. In August 2015, Eric Trump spoke of the potential for the second tower: "I think in time it's a very good possibility."

Do I think this was done on purpose? That Trump made sure the ground behind his building would look like Horus if someone with too much time went on Google maps and mirrored a satellite view of his building? No. I think a lot of things people think are orchestrated by humans are actually done without any knowledge of the people doing them. I think we are all under the influence of forces that we don't understand and some are following a script that they don't even know exists. I consider this like a fingerprint or a wink from the Matrix. But this is not the only thing found at this location.

Thats the Hindu goddess of death Kali and Magneto's helmet from X-Men. The image of Kali was projected onto the Empire State building years back and so was Trump's when he won the election. Trump had been trying to acquire complete ownership of the building for a while before ultimately selling his part after his plan failed and he got sued. Magnetism's relationship to this entire thing could be its own post but (once again) it was mentioned in the Trackdown episode as Walter Trump claimed to have a metal he called Magnetium that was created in the "smelters of old Montezuma" that could repel falling iron ore meteorites. Magneto also sports a familiar symbol on the cover of this X-Men comic. A logo for the "Hellfire Club", which is headed by a man named SEBASTIAN Shaw.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellfire_Club_(comics))
The Hellfire Club is a fictional society appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The Hellfire Club often comes into confrontation with the mutant superhero team, the X-Men. Although the Club appears to merely be an international social club for wealthy elites, its clandestine Inner Circle seeks to influence world events, in accordance with their own agenda.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellfire_Club
Hellfire Club was a name for several exclusive clubs for high society rakes established in Britain and Ireland in the 18th century. The name is most commonly used to refer to Sir Francis Dashwood's Order of the Friars of St. Francis of Wycombe. Such clubs were rumoured to be the meeting places of "persons of quality" who wished to take part in socially perceived immoral acts, and the members were often involved in politics. Neither the activities nor membership of the club are easy to ascertain. The clubs were rumoured to have distant ties to an elite society known only as The Order of the Second Circle.

Read about the meaning of the symbolism of H-K and others here.

I believe this design appears because it is on a spot that is at the center of the design of creation. The Golden mean or Ratio, something else that needs an entire post to fully explain, closely associated with the Greek god Apollo. Trump's building representing the "3rd eye". Trumps star Regulus was called Miyan in Persia which means center. The picture of that area mirrored strangely looks like this overhead view of a spot in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.

This seems to hold some clues as well behind the symbolism of this building. Form your own opinion.

Going back again to Trump Tower and Cleopatra's needle, this whole thing gets a lot stranger when you tie in the theory that Jesus was the son of Cleopatra and the man she was building the temple for where these obelisks were going to be erected Julius Caesar, then read the inscription from the obelisk itself.

"The crowned Horus

Something tells me at least a few people in power know who and what Trump is and what he's here to do.

Broderick Stephen "Steve" Harvey[2][3] (born January 17, 1957), nicknamed "Mr. Peanut Brain", is an American comedian, businessman, and entertainer. He hosts The Steve Harvey Morning Show, Family Feud, Celebrity Family Feud, the Miss Universe competition (since 2015) and Fox's New Year's Eve (since 2017).
Harvey began his career as a comedian. He did standup comedy in the early 1980s and hosted Showtime at the Apollo and The Steve Harvey Show on The WB. He was later featured in The Original Kings of Comedy after starring in the Kings of Comedy Tour. He performed his last standup show in 2012.
Harvey is the host of both Family Feud and Celebrity Family Feud which he has done since 2010. He has also hosted Little Big Shots, Little Big Shots Forever Young, and Steve Harvey’s Funderdome. As an author, he has written four books including his bestseller Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, which was published in March 2009.
In 2017, Harvey founded Steve Harvey Global, an entertainment company that houses his production company East 112 and various other ventures. He launched an African version of the Family Feud and also invested in the HDNet takeover along with Anthem Sports and Entertainment. He and his wife Marjorie are the founders of The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation, a non profit organization focused on youth education.
He is a six-time Daytime Emmy Award winner, two-time Marconi Award winner, and a 14-time NAACP Image Award winner in various categories.
Early Life
Harvey was born on January 17, 1957,[4][5] in Welch, West Virginia, and is the son of Jesse Harvey, a coal miner, and Eloise Vera.[6] His first name is Broderick, named after actor Broderick Crawford of the TV series Highway Patrol.[2] Harvey's family moved to Cleveland, Ohio, living on East 112th Street, which was renamed Steve Harvey Way in 2015.[7] He graduated from Glenville High School in 1974.[7]
Shortly after high school, he attended Kent State University and West Virginia University and is a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity.
Career
Early career and comedy Harvey has been a boxer, an autoworker, an insurance salesman, a carpet cleaner, and a mailman.[6][8][9] He first performed stand-up comedy on October 8, 1985, at the Hilarities Comedy Club in Cleveland, Ohio. In the late '80s, Harvey was homeless for three years.[10] He slept in his 1976 Ford when not performing gigs that provided a hotel, and he showered at gas stations or swimming pool showers.[11] Rich and Becky Liss helped Harvey during this time with a contract for carpet cleaning and credit at a travel agency.[12]
1990–2009; Move to television and film
Harvey was a finalist in the Second Annual Johnnie Walker National Comedy Search performing on April 16, 1990, eventually leading to a long stint as host of It's Showtime at the Apollo, succeeding Mark Curry in that role. His success as a stand-up comedian led to a starring role on the short-lived ABC show Me and the Boys in 1994.[13] He would later star on the WB network show, The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002.[13] While popular, the show never achieved critical acclaim outside of the African-American community.[14]
In 1997, Harvey continued his work in stand-up comedy, performing on the Kings of Comedy tour along with Cedric the Entertainer, D.L. Hughley, and Bernie Mac. The tour became the highest grossing comedy tour in history, grossing $18 million its first year and $19 million its second.[15] The comedy act would later be put together into a film by Spike Lee called The Original Kings of Comedy.[16] That title was also used as the name of his comedy and variety television show (later renamed Steve Harvey's Big Time Challenge), which aired on The WB network from 2003 until 2005.[17]
Harvey is the host of The Steve Harvey Morning Show, a weekday morning radio program he has hosted since 2000.[18] It was originally syndicated through Radio One Inc. from September 2000 until May 2005.[citation needed] As of 2019, the show is syndicated through the United States.[18]
He had appeared in the 2003 movie The Fighting Temptations alongside Cuba Gooding Jr. and Beyoncé Knowles.[19] The same year he played the role of Clarence Johnson in the film Love Don't Cost a Thing.[20] In 2014 he had roles in the films Johnson Family Vacation and You Got Served;[21] and, in 2005, he co-starred in the movie Racing Stripes as the voice of Buzz.[22]
In 2006, Harvey released the stand-up special Steve Harvey: Don't Trip... He Ain't Through with Me Yet directed by Leslie Small. The special was filmed at MegaFest with Harvey not using profanity during the show.[23] In 2008, Harvey hosted the Disney Dreamers Academy, a teen-focused personal and professional enrichment event that took place January 17–20, 2008, at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.[24]
Harvey released the book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man in 2009. The book is about how men think about women and relationships.[25] Based on the book, the 2012 film Think Like a Man, is an ensemble romantic comedy depicting characters taking advice on dating from the book.[26] The hardcover version spent 64 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, 23 of those weeks at No. 1.[27]
2010 to 2016; Family Feud and other ventures
Harvey began hosting Family Feud in September 2010.[6][28] The show has seen improved ratings under Harvey,[29] and he has surpassed every previous Feud host to date in length of consecutive tenures.[30] Harvey also hosts Celebrity Family Feud, where celebrities compete for a chance to donate up to $25,000 to their favorite charity. The show airs during the summer on ABC.[31]
On August 2, 2012, Harvey performed his final stand-up act at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, ending a 27-year career as a stand-up comedian. The two-hour performance was broadcast live on Pay-Per-View. “The road to this final show has been an amazing journey, doing stand-up for the past 27 years, and I can’t thank fans enough after reflecting on all those years on stage,” he said.[32][33] The same year, Harvey debuted a self-titled syndicated talk show produced by Endemol and distributed by NBCUniversal Television Distribution at the NBC Tower in Chicago.[34]
In 2013, Harvey became the first double host nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award, receiving nominations for both Outstanding Talk Show Host and Outstanding Game Show Host.[35] He was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.[36] The following year, Harvey launched a new dating website called Delightful. It is a joint venture with IAC with Harvey supplying articles and videos for the site.[37]
In December 2015, Harvey hosted the Miss Universe 2015 pageant in Las Vegas. Upon announcing the final results, he mistakenly named the first runner-up, Miss Colombia (Ariadna Gutiérrez) as the winner. A few minutes after she was crowned, Harvey announced that he had read the results incorrectly and that Miss Philippines (Pia Wurtzbach) was the new Miss Universe.[38] He apologized to Wurtzbach outside the venue and later tweeted an apology to both contestants.[39][40][41] Harvey also hosted the Miss Universe 2016 pageant in the Philippines on January 30, 2017, telling the Miss Universe Organization that he wanted to personally apologize to the Filipinos for the incident that occurred in the last Miss Universe pageant he hosted.[42] He returned as host for the Miss Universe 2017 pageant in Las Vegas on November 26, 2017 and the Miss Universe 2018 pageant in Thailand on December 17, 2018.[43]
In January 2016, Harvey gave a motivational speech to audience members after the taping of an episode of Family Feud. He theme of the speech was for people to embrace the skills they were born with. He references embracing the gifts with jumping from a cliff and relying on the parachute (those gifts) to help you.[44] The speech was the motivation for the book Leap: Take the Leap of Faith to Achieve Your Life of Abundance, published by Harvey in 2016.[45]
In October 2016, it was announced that Harvey would host two revival specials of Showtime at the Apollo for Fox.[46] In November 2016, the Steve Harvey talk show was cancelled, and it was announced that Harvey had reached a deal with IMG to produce a new syndicated talk show in Los Angeles with NBCUniversal. The new series, Steve, premiered in September 2017, and was described as having more of a celebrity and comedy oriented format with a larger amount of creative control held by Harvey, as opposed to the previous program's larger focus on human interest subjects. To facilitate the new series, production of Harvey's radio show and Family Feud were relocated to L.A.[47][48]
Harvey is the co-creator of Little Big Shots, a series launched in 2016 and executive produced by him and Ellen DeGeneres.[49] The series features children demonstrating talents and engaging in conversation with Harvey. Harvey hosted the show until 2019.[50]
2017 to present; Steve Harvey Global Harvey united all of his businesses under Steve Harvey Global (SHG) in 2017.[51] Brands under SHG include East One Twelve, Harvey's in-house production company that is used to develop digital content, films, and television. The company also owns the rights for international versions of Family Feud,[52] of which an African version of the show was announced to begin in 2020.[53] He also launched the Sand and Soul Festival in 2017. The event has been held yearly and features live music, comedy, and a question and answers session with Harvey and his wife Marjorie.[54] He also launched Harvey Events, a special events company led by his daughter Morgan Hawthorne and son-in-law Kareem Hawthorne. It has produced events such as the FroRibbean Fest in Atlanta in 2018.[55]
In 2017, Harvey began hosting a New Year's Eve special from Times Square for Fox (which, like his talk show, would be produced in partnership with IMG).[56] Two days before the broadcast, Harvey was ordained in the state of New York so he could officiate an on-air wedding between Keven Undergaro and Maria Menounos during the special.[57] The special was Fox's most-watched New Year's Eve broadcast to date.[58]
In 2019, Harvey announced the launch of a learning hub called Vault.[59] He also spoke at the first Vault conference held in Los Angeles.[60] He also invested in the takeover of HDNet along with Anthem Sports & Entertainment.

Controversies
Politics In August 2011, on his radio show, Harvey called Cornel West and Tavis Smiley "Uncle Toms" because of their criticism of President Barack Obama.[73] Harvey later apologized for using the slur but maintained his criticism of West and Smiley.[74][75] In January 2017, Harvey was met with backlash from some in the African-American community for his decision to meet with then-President elect Donald Trump. He defended his decision, citing that it would help spark positive changes.[76]
Comments about atheists Harvey has received criticism for a May 30, 2009, book interview he gave on Larry King Live, which was guest-hosted by Joy Behar.[77] During that interview, he asserted that women should not date atheists who, he claimed, have no "moral barometer." He opined that atheists are "idiot[s]" and stated that his usual response to discussions with atheists is to walk away.[78][79]
Racial comments about Asian men In January 2017, Steve Harvey made jokes on Steve Harvey about Asian men, ridiculing the idea that any white woman or black woman would want to date them. "Excuse me, do you like Asian men?" he said, "No, thank you." He went on to add, "I don't even like Chinese food."[80] The remarks were met with criticism from Asian Americans, including New York politicians and author Eddie Huang.[81][82] For instance, Huang remarked about Harvey's hypocrisy in speaking about issues facing the black community while denigrating Asians.[82][83] Harvey apologized on his talk show and Twitter, saying: "I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community. … It was not my intention, and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever."[84] However, he also earlier said, "I ain’t been laughing that much over the past few days. They’re kinda beating me up on the internet right now for no reason. But, you know, that’s life, ain’t it?"[85]
Comments about Flint water crisis In response to a caller from Flint, Michigan, who insulted the Cleveland Cavaliers after their loss to the Golden State Warriors, Harvey, a Cavaliers fan, told the caller to "go have yourself a nice glass of brown water!" in reference to the city's water crisis. The joke was criticized by, among others, Amariyanna Copeny and Flint Mayor Karen Weaver, who demanded a public apology. Harvey responded by saying, "The caller and I were talking trash about our teams and cities. Simply trash talking about sports. I made a joke directed at him, as he is from Flint, a city for which I have great affection and respect. So much so that I devoted a full hour on my daytime talk show to raising awareness for the Flint water crisis. … The caller laughed, as my joke was taken in the context it was offered."
Philanthropy
Harvey is the founder of the Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation, a philanthropic organization that provides youth outreach services.[88] The foundation hosts a yearly camp for fatherless children[89] and also partnered with Kent State University to provide scholarships to the school.[90] Harvey is also a partner with Walt Disney World Resort and Essence for the Disney Dreamers Academy, a yearly workshop at Walt Disney World for 100 students.
Personal Life
Harvey has been married three times and has seven children (four biological and three stepchildren). From his first marriage, to Marcia Harvey, he has two daughters (twins Brandi and Karli) and one son (Broderick Harvey Jr.).[92][8][93] From his second marriage, to Mary Shackelford, Harvey has another son named Wynton.[94][95][96] The couple divorced in November 2005.[97] In 2011, Collin County, Texas-based 199th District Court Judge Robert Dry expressed concern about Mary Harvey spreading false information about the divorce, with the judge suggesting that she had not been left materially destitute.[98][99]
In June 2007, Harvey married Marjorie Bridges, who he says is responsible for making him a better man and changing his life. Marjorie Harvey is mother to three children (Morgan, Jason, and Lori [96]), all of whom Steve adopted. Steve and Marjorie have five grandchildren: three through Jason's marriage to his wife Amanda, one through Morgan's marriage to her husband Kareem, and one through Karli's marriage to husband Ben.[100] Through 2017, Harvey and his family divided their time between Atlanta, where his radio show was broadcast and Family Feud was recorded, and Chicago, where he hosted his talk show for NBCUniversal from the company's Chicago studios, although he would host his radio show there as well.[101] In 2018, Harvey moved his talk show, radio show, and Family Feud to Los Angeles.[102]
Harvey is a Christian[103] and has attributed his success to his faith in God.[104] Harvey reports that he has followed a vegan diet for health reasons and has presented the rationale for his diet on his TV program.
