#59 - Were you ever part of a betting syndicate?

That Quik-Bet slip reminds me of the old days of the Pick-6.

On jackpot (typically $100,000) forceout days, syndicates of bettors would set up card tables in the lobby at Hartford, filling out thousands of those Pick-6 betting slips.

Were you one of them?

Or, on a lesser scale, have you pooled your money with friends to increase the number of combos you can cover? If so, what are the ground rules, i,e., who makes the choices, who holds the money, etc.?
