The Haast’s eagle (Harpagornis moorei) is an extinct species of eagle that once lived in the South Island of New Zealand, commonly accepted to be the Pouakai of Maori legend.
By combining being a nerd (love science, computers and reading) with an hyper attitude i adopted the name “harapagornis“. After registering it at several pokersites i realized a small mistake. It is harpagornis. A fitting mistake. Always racing, always fast, never too keen on the details.
During the early pokerboom i was busy graduating from university. And when i started working i slowly adjusted from the green felt to matchedbetting. A brilliant and easy system of making money. By balancing the odds you will make a profit. Think about it, if you bet on a tennisgame (federer vs nadal) and both players would double your money you cannot lose. If one of them gives you 2.3 times your money, you are basically given a free shot at 0.3 your bet. That is matchedbetting.
And now i am returning to both – the green felt and the numbergames. But not full-time. Just a side-income. A way of supplementing and increasing the timeframe for an early retirement and financial independence. On this side you can read about the progress.
