Sports Betting 

Sean Perry is not only a poker player; he also does high-stakes sports betting and calls himself the “world’s best sports bettor.” 

Sean claims on his X profile that he is up eight figures in sports betting in his lifetime

His recent bet was a significant one, he placed a bet of $1.1 million on the 49ers to win the Super Bowl.

Unfortunately for Sean, the 49ers lost the Super Bowl, and he lost the money, but he says that he is still up over $4 million this year, and losing or winning vast amounts of money isn’t anything new to him.

He was also participating in a Circa Survivor competition with only 13 players left, and 12 of them agreed to chop the $9.3 million pot, but Sean refused to chop and said, “With all respect, I’m the best bettor in the world. There’s no way I’m ever chopping. I wish you guys all the best. I’ll see you at the finish line.”

Perry did offer to chop if he got $2 million because he believed he had an advantage.

Perry is aware that many will see him as a bad guy for not chopping the pot.

Circa Survivor competition is a sports betting format where players pick a different team each week, and the winners go to the next round until everybody is knocked out. The player who survives the longest wins $8 million.

“If you don’t have any haters, you’re doing (expletive) the wrong way,” he said to Todd Dewey. “Unfortunately, in the poker world, I have a bunch of haters, and in the gambling world, I have a bunch of haters. People don’t like winners.”I’m not doing anything wrong. I don’t mean harm to anyone. But the truth is, for me, this is a business, and this is how I make my money. We all signed up in this competition to make money and to play for a winner.”

He also said that he is moving away from the poker world and getting more into sports betting because he is crushing it so much.

Perry was also a guest on the “Ugly Inside” Podcast, where he talked about how casinos make money, his background, poker, gambling, and other stuff.
