a) some scumbag offshore non-pool bookie gets taken, and
b) everyone betting Tdn legitimately gets a nice price on an easy winner.

What's the issue?

The report doesn't make sense. Why not bet the whole $30K at 1-2 with the offshore bookmaker and net an additional $5K?

I think they are just speculating on how much was bet off shore.  The only hard number they have is what was bet through the ADW.

I could be wrong, but I seriously doubt that an offshore book is going to take bets that large on a track like that.  These offshore books deal with the most sophisticated soccer bettors in the world that are in a constant battle to scam the book, they're not going to let somebody playing Thistledown embarrass them.

Vegas is famous for introducing a player who was banned
from all casino's because he won so much money and buy
his book for $10 and you will too!  ad money here
