This week has been a real Roller Coaster, mainly because I lost discipline and focus. At one stage I was staring down a $300-$400 loss. Most of that loss was caused by betting with the assistance of a few Jim Beams. Bourbon is nice, but not when you are betting. I made at least two serious mistakes, while I was in Jim’s company, which cost me well over $200. The week was saved on Saturday. I had hoped that the Horse Racing Tipsters would come to my rescue with a huge weekend. Naturally they didn’t, but I managed to play some bonuses and make a nice profit …. while sober.
Overall this week I made a profit of $839 (+5.63% POT), which is nice but also galling at the same time. Without Jim’s influence, it would have been the third week in a row of $1,000+ profit.
David Evans ~ Pro Bet lost $96 (-18% POT) on his Thoroughbred selections.
Ed Kennett ~ Red Belly Sports lost $225 (-20% POT) on his Thoroughbred selections.
My bets made a profit of $1,132 (+10% POT) on chasing Bookies bonuses on the races. I don’t know if it was coincidental, but after the weekend, William Hill appointed a new account manager for me, and he advised that he would be looking deeper into my account.
Daily Profit ~ Value Bets made a profit of $20 (+4% POT). Not a lot of action around for them at the moment, but that will pick up dramatically as soon as the footy (AFL & NRL) start. But they consistently make money. It is a brilliant service.
Daily Profit ~ Daily Trades made a profit of $1 (+0.1% POT). I have tightened up the criteria on this one, and am trying to stick only with the main stream sports. Too much chance of getting banned, or limited, if I start betting on all sorts of strange and exotic sports.
And so we dive into another week … hopefully with more discipline and less influence from Jim 🙂
