Schillinger doesn't see much difference between what he was doing legally on the stock exchange and as a fugitive today, except that sports oddsmaking is both more lucrative and more fun. He returns home to his darkened villa on a hillside overlooking the Caribbean, flips on the lights, and offers a plaintive sigh at the board games stacked on a shelf that were left behind by his children. His workday over, he heads off to bed. It's NCAA Tournament time, the Christmas rush in his business. Tomorrow will be a busy day.
