Meet Tommy Hammer Massis

On this episode of Past the Wire TV and Past the Wire’s podcast Gate to Wire we welcome one of the best to sit down with one of the best!

Jonathan Stettin and Tommy Hammer Massis at the Breeders’ Cup

Tommy Massis, or Hammer as his friends call him is one of the more successful in the game today. Tommy sits down with his friend Pick 6 King Jonathan Stettin another successful horseplayer in his own right for a frank conversation on how Tommy got into the game, the lessons he learned along the way, and how ultimately to beat the game and earn his living doing so.

Jon and Tommy get into a variety of topics within the sport including computer assisted wagering and sports betting. Of course they also touch on the “now” topic of fixed odds wagering.

Hammer and the Pick 6 King are friends, and they go back aways, but they don’t agree on everything and both their perspectives come from knowledge and experience.

One thing they both feel strongly about is the the owners and bettors are fueling the game, and they are the only two groups not guaranteed a paycheck. Like Jon, Hammer knows what it is like to be in the if I don’t win I don’t eat situation, and that position gives you a very unique position of the Sport of Kings.

It is not often you get two players like this together for a candid and open conversation. You won’t want to miss it. If you want to get to know Tommy Hammer Massis here is your chance. You can’t get an education like this at any university.
