Score is 6-4 3*-2 to Tipsarevic. Hoping he can finish this off from here.

4-4* C'mon another break then Janko!
4*-5 Monfils acting the clown now. Show him who's boss Janko!! C'mon!!!
Hmm Janko's first serve seems to have disappeared whilst Monfils seems to have found his :(
Monfils is such a goon... trying to get the crowd to sarcastically cheer an over rule!! Idiot!
5-5* C'mon Tipsarevic break him!!
15-40 c'mon Take One!!!!!

No idea what has been happening as My system died yet again :( I think I may have to make an investment in a new laptop!  guess working them for 12-14 hours per day with numerous streams sb's and a bot is going to take it's toll sooner or later!
2-2 it is then sb says Janko has had 3 bp's this set :o Why oh why can he not convert!!
3-2* Holds to love! Now the break!! 30-40 TAKE IT!!!!!! YEEEESSSSS!!!

BP!! Istomin you fool!! And break :o They will not allow this!!
5*-5 Break again then Marat!!

BP#2 This time!!! Saved :( Istomin may have to arrange to take a holiday to a far away isolated place if he stuffs this one up!!
BP#3 I see he's just adding drama :-) Saved with an ace! Surely meant to miss! GP :(
6-5* WTF is this? Istomin is treading on very this ice here I feel. Does he not know this is Marat's tournament? Crazy fool! LOL

Thanks to Rev for pointing this out!! (I hope!!)

Zeballos leads 7-6 4*-3 30-15 when I get on.

5-3* now can he finish this off. I hope so Gulbis may not really be interested.
5*-4 it is then. Zeballos has faced (and saved) 6 break points this match. Don't want that kind of drama but would suggest he's serving well on the big points. C'mon Horacio!!
15-0
30-0 2 more!!
30-15 STill 2 more :(
30-30 Don't you dare!!!
40-30 TAKE ITTT!!!!!!

THANKS REV!!!!! :)

Caroline Wozniacki v Jelena Jankovic

Well this is one I was waiting for but then got distracted so missed the start.
It was 15-15 in the first game of the match when I got on with Wozniacki serving.
I'm in so early because there is no way Woniackican beat Jankovic today after two gruelling matches and her injury problems. Only gone in £400 so leaves some to rescue or top up if it goes against me.

Ref: 9318004698 Bet matched:14:15 30-Oct-09


If Wozniacki does manage to win or indeed even get a set then I would be very surprised and maybe her "injury" antics yesterday were more in her head than physical. Jankovic just needs to bring her steady patient game to the court today and keep making her opponent move.

3*-2 First blood to Jankovic. She looks in total control at the moment. Just needs to stay focused.
4-2* And focused she doesn't stay going to 15-40 but saved them and another BP before finally holding.
5*-2 And another break. Let's hope Wozniacki sees out the set. Though I believe she needs to win a set to guarantee a place in the next round, depending on Azarenka's result later. Is Denmark nice in October? I'd rather stay in Doha for some sunshine on my holidays!!
6-2 Set to Jankovic!! Now you can retire and hit the beach if you like Caroline. :)

Ordinarily I would be looking to green out on this but I really feel it would just be throwing money away so will stick unless I see an opportunity open up in another match.

1*-0 Nice start from JJ with the break.
2-0* Bit of a wobble so I'm out at 1.04 Woz may get a set here if Jelena has a brain fart. Better safe than sorry and of course "GREEN IS GOOD"


Jankovic Wins 6-2 6-2
Profit: £132.03

Philipp Kohlschreiber v Nicolas Almagro

It was a finely balanced 1st set with Kohlschreiber taking it 7-5 with only one break in the match.

A 1.55ish Starting price makes me think there is good value in a 1.21 price at the start of the 2nd set. So having a nibble of that.

And a break straight away is very nice indeed to give Kohlschreiber a 1*-0 lead. He did face 3 break points in the first set and it's far from over but I'll confidently hold my position for now.

2-0* Odds still a couple of ticks too high for me. A bit of pressure on this service gane and I may get out at a decent price.
2*-1 A strong hold now should be enough for me to get out as a 3-1 lead always looks bigger than it really is!
3-1* Hold to love and market drops 1 tick!! :( OK I'll just ride it out then. Hope the market gets stung by another break now!
3*-2 Hmmm up 2 ticks! Does the market not realise that the higher the number of games played the closer we are to it finishing???
4-2 Kohlschreiber should see it out from here. Hopefully Almagro will be broken here though!
4*-3 Only two more holds and we're home :)
5-3* Holds after giving me a bit of a scare with deuce! Now break for GSM and get this over with!
5*-4 Gonna have to serve it out and send Almagro on the next flight back to Spain. He must be due to start his holidays.  I've layed a little off just in case!


Kohlschreiber Wins 7-5 6-4
Profit: £67.46

Post Reflection Punting

After my Reflections post yesterday I did carry on punting to a degree.
My stakes were vastly reduced so I was trying to get £200 matched on the first match.


Serena Williams v Elena Dementieva
Profit: £33.21
I wasn't able to get fully matched on this.






Svetlana Kuznetsova v Venus Williams
Profit: £53.50
A few trades with relatively small stakes made a nive return.





Shaun Murphy v Stephen Hendry
Profit: £44.59
This was a bit nuts.
No pics, no scoreboard, no idea, backed and then layed.
Even green all round! I love Snooker ;)


Palmeiras v Goias
Profit: £92.19
Usual Over 1.5 bet here. Topped up with a little more when still 0-0 just before half time.


All in all a very good day and brought my percentage increase for the week so far to over 10,000% :-)
However I will reduce my stakes a bit today as still recovering from some of the comments from yesterday, unless of course I see a sure fire thing ;)

Good luck today everyone and happy punting.

Reflections

If you missed the Zvonereva v Wozniacki match blog I would suggest you read that first here: Zvonereva v Wozniacki as this post is in reference to that match and some of the messgaes and comments received since it ended.

To begin with I will try and answer what seems to be the biggest question and thenmove on to the others.

How can you walk away leaving over £900 on a bet?
I have tried to explain this before but I guess it is all about an individuals mind set so it is difficult to grasp. I perceive my stake purely at the figure of my investment. For example I started the week with £12.35 so that could be considered my "investment". However, though I often refer to this to try and make it easier for people to picture, this is not how I think. I am in profit overall. Therefore I have a fundamental belief that I have a negative investment. I actually believe that the market has invested in me with it's money and I can choose to take more money or hand it back. I also consider the money still in Betfair as belonging to the market. It only becomes mine when I withdraw it to my own personal bank account. Effectively my only investment is my time. However this has a slant on it too. I enjoy my "hobby" and as such would be willing to pay for the enjoyment I take from gambling as most punters do thus increasing the effective investment I perceive the market to have made.

Do you follow a set system and are you trying to sell it or make money from it?
I have no magic system or holy grail for betting I'm afraid. I certainly do not advocate my style of punting either (more on this in another question) as it is extremely high risk and would probably only be mimicked by those that can not afford to lose the money. As for making money from it then yes I do make money from it. I have things on my blog such as google adsense that if someone clicks an ad I earn a few pence. I also have one and may soon add more affiliate links that if someone buys something I would get a commission. However, to put this into perspective, I have earned a grand total of £27.32 since I started this blog. I would hate to add up the hours spent on it, but would hazard a guess that I am earning less than £0.05 per hour. I'm fairly sure I could earn more making clothes for Primark in an Asian sweatshop!! Of course it would be great if the blog earned me a living but let's face it my audience is pretty small with a lot of competition so it ain't Going to happen! (Feel free to click the ads though!! LOL)

Why do you encourage people to be so irresponsible with their betting banks?
Do I? This blog is for entertainment purposes first and foremost as I hope people enjoy reading through and chatting. Secondly this blog is actually following on from the forum where I got lots of questions asked of me by relative novices. Here too I get many questions every day from people I do not know asking for help and advice. I try and give my perspective on their situations and offer solutions to the problems they face. I do not profess to have all the answers and I am always learning myself. However as a punter who has been at the edge of the Abyss looking in I can relate to most of the anguish that can come from being a gambler. If you need to know my history it is all explained in the Betfair forum thread. I make no claims about being successful. I am a gambling addict and make no bones about it. I do not (or try not to) preach as I have accepted that this is a crutch I need in my life but that you have to handle with care or it can wrestle control from you once again.

Do you think the figures you bet with are obscene and rub people up the wrong way?
I had a few questions/comments on this. Some supportive some not! I have taken note of it though as I received one very poignant comment from a person who shall remain anonymous. This particular person is, let's face it, in a mess in their life. It's not a nice place to be, I know I've been there! I understand that £1,000 punts are so out of the reach of the average punter that they can influence others into putting money they can't afford and have even stolen/borrowed in to try and desperately salvage their situations. I have taken one suggestion on this and will just keep working on £100 - £1000 challenges as these can be achieved by the majority and help everyone. I have refused to follow another suggestion though, that I replace actual money for points etc. For me that doesn't cut the mustard and would be like all the other fairy tales you can read on blogs and forums. The idea of this blog and the thread before it is that it is slightly different in the fact that I post up my bets and have started using screen shots (since Rev kindly showed me how). Anyone can post up mythical bets saying I won $1billion dollars etc and many do! Not for me.

And finally:

Do you have the biggest balls in the world?
Yes I suffer from elaphantitis of the nuts ;-) LOL

I may not be making any bets tonight as I am slightly taken aback by some of the response I have received.

Good luck everyone and happy punting!! :-)

Deuce :( C'mon Woz!! 2 double faults would be nice!!
Adv Zvonereva

There is a prime example of why betting software is useful. I would have hit all green on Fairbot at 1.04 and been home and dry now. However for some reason I didn't have it open :( D'oh!!

Pfft 6-6 Tiebreak Time!! Hope that GSM doesn't throw Wozniacki!! A hold 1st up please.

0*-2 Nice one Wozniacki now can she break again?

Deuce. C'mon Woz hold please!! GP TAKE IT!!!! HOLDS! Probably more important than breaks at the moment!!
1*-3 Let's have the old missed BP = Break next game scenario then!!

WTF - Trainer!! DO NOT RETIRE WOZ Get back out there and break her!!

Right c'mon then get the break then I'll get out and you can do what you want!! Woz seems to be moving ok! Probably just tactical before Vera had to serve! Here's hoping!
Ooh should have had 15-30 there but 30-15 instead :( And now would have been 15-40 but only 30 all. C'mon Woz 2 more. BP!!! TAKE IT!!!!!!! PFFFttt saved. :( GP. Deuce c'mon Wozniacki.... 2 points!! We've not had a DF for a while! Again had the chance in the point but GP :(

2-3* Hmmm getting very nervous now! Don't know what Wozniacki's reaction will be if she gets broken here. Market will go into meltdown too, maybe I should red for -243? But hopefully she'll hold to love :)

0-30 awful from Woz and a flip flop to boot :(
0-40 I'm gonna get done here I feel! :( c'mon Woz fight!!
3*-3 Now we will see Wozniacki's mettle! Break back girl c'mon!!

Barueri v Flamengo

Watched the first 5 minns before making my decision. Initially thought to back Under 4.5 @ 1.19 pre match. However both teams look sprightly and as such I'm going for my usual bet. Over 1.5 it is :) Also fancy a draw or Flamengo win here so a lay of Barueri may have been an option

Goal for Flamengo ruled out for Offside after 15mins :( Please don't let it be one of those nights!! :(

GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!! As the commentators in Brazil like to say :)

1-0 scored with the last kick of the 1st half in the 3rd minute of injury time!!

20 Mins gone in 2nd half still 1-0. I think I need to do my old going for a fag trick. It'd better be 2goals by the time I get back or there'll be trouble!!

Get in 2-0!!! The fag always works :)

30-15 but looked like Wozniacki just had to stretch her thigh off then!!
30-40 TAKE IT!!!
Deuce - Wozniacki is finished think people missed that pull up before!! Even if she serves this out she can not keep it up in a 3rd!
Set Wozniacki and nearly evens the pair??? Absolute madness!!! Wozniacki is finished!! Azarenka just has to stay on court.

WTF is is this 10 mins break??? Heat??

Reading the forums it seems I have in the minority thinking Azarenka is stronger here!! That's messed my head up somewhat!

OK time to think now. Vicky serving 1st in final set so I'm going to lay the server to get out of this so:

0-2* If only they hadn't had that break!! I wouldn't have read the forums and held my position!! :( C'mon Wozniacki fight back please :)

1*-2 And Wozniacki breaks back!! Should have just kept laying the server would have been out now! Hold please Wozniacki!
1-3* Break to love!! :( Wozniacki you muppet!! Now break back please!
2*-3 YEEESSSS!!! Can she back it up with a hold this time? A point would be a start!
Tempted to switch for the break but surely not 5 in a row :o
0-40 What is this crap?? Deuce!! Now hold!!! Another BP saved! GP Take it!!! How many times in WTA do players fight back from 0-40 only to get broken still!! :(
2-4* FFS this is shocking!! Break again? Yes please :)

On a lighter note.... Wozniacki really should sack her stylist!! Those outfits she's been wearing of late are awful!! Did she get them from a charity shop?

3*-4 Double fault gives the Break!! Woeful from both players here. I wish I had stayed out probably missing loads of opportunities in other matches :(
A hold here and Wozniacki should be odds on!! Not giving away 0-40 would be a bonus!
0-40 AGAIN!!! FFS Azarenka though seems to have injured her knee or ankle!
3-5* Broken to love!!!

4*-5 Now then will the injury concern for Azarenka eat in to her? Will Wozniacki win a point on serve? Does WOzniacki have more than one shot? LOL C'mon Caroline let's have one incy wincy little hold please :)

0-15 Double fault :( 15-15 some hope!! 30-15!! 30-30 :( Just 2 points Wozniacki please :) MATCH POINT #1 :( Saved!! Now Wozniacki to win :) GP!! Deuce :( GP!!! Take it this time!! YEEEESSSS

5-5* Finally after a run of 8 consecutive breaks we have a hold after saving Match Point. How will Azarenka react now? Bring on the break please!
6*-5 LOL Violation gives the break!!! Vicky trying to be Serena Williams!! :D

Now then Wozniacki to serve it out? I can now green up for £3.00ish if I wanted but I have faith in Wozniacki if not to serve it out then in a Tiebreak. But c'mon the hold!!
15-0 C'mon!!

John Isner v Janko Tipsarevic

Again getting in from the start where I probably shouldn't. Backing Tipsy here as he's been on a good run of late. Add to that the fact that Isner doesn't seem able to play outside of North America and it should all stack up to a Tipsy win.

Tuesday Summary

Following on from Monday's success I started Tuesday needing to get to £100.81.

Bet 1 - Profit: £4.72
Bet 2 - Profit: £3.46
Bet 3 - Profit: £13.24
Bet 4 - Profit: £5.11
Bet 5 - Profit: £9.88
Bet 6 - Profit: £25.93

After these tennis bets I had to go out for the evening, leaving me an agonising £0.57 short of my daily target!!

So when I got in I had a quick bet on the football

Bet 7 - Profit: £0.58

That took me past my target, just.  So for Wednesday I need another 166% increase of bank in order to stay on target. That would take me to £268.18.

There's plenty of tennis today so patience is the name of the game I feel.

Good luck everybody and Happy Punting!!

Juventude v Bahia

Backed under 4.5 goals purely and simply to get the 0.58 I needed to hit my daily target :)

Nice start to the week yesterday :)

Went from £12.35 to £37.90 an increase of over 200%!!
Now need 166% increase per day to get up to £5,000 by the end of October (Saturday)

Yesterday started with tennis betting:

Bet 3 - Profit: £0.49

Then I moved on to North American sports, Ice Hockey and American Football.

Bet 4 - Profit: £11.49
Bet 5 - Profit £5.27

Here's to a continuation of that today. Loads and loads of tennis to go at today so going to have to remember to try and be selective. I have a meeting at 10am but should be back by 11.30am to start punting.

Good luck everyone :) Happy Punting!!

Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington Redskins

Backing the Eagles here. After such a terrible result losing to the Oakland Raiders last week they are going to want to get back on track tonight!

The Redskins have been awful so I really expect a comfortable victory here for the Eagles. The odds of 1.28 are perhaps a bit skinny but I guess you've gotta take what's available :(

Phoenix Coyotes @ New York Rangers

I really should know better but really fancy this punt despite a few things adding up to why I shouldn't do it.

Firstly I have no real knowledge of NHL!!!!
Secondly I have no idea what sort of form these two have!!
Thirdly the only other time I bet on Ice Hockey I lost badly backing Detroit Red Wings at a ridiculously low price in last year's opener!!

Still I just have a "feeling" that The Rangers are going to win handsomely in this one, and as such I'm going on a hunch!! Seat of your pants punting at it's finest!! :)

I'm that confident I've even taken the match odds rather than the money line!! :o

Wish me luck I may well need it! ;)

Despite advising that this is not a match to get involved in early I have done exactly that!!! :o

All in on Koubek from the off. He is serving 1st and at home so hoping for a strong start. Will probably go even green at the first opportunity! Then again I may not!! ;)

1-2* :(

Breaks back for 3*-3 Now kick on please Stefan. Use the home crowd to your advantage!!
4*-4 A hold here will really apply the pressure on Gil as Koubek has the advantage of serving first.

And there it is Breaks for the set 6-4 and will serve 1st in the second. I can see this going to 3 sets though so I am happy to take the even green I think.

OK so Koubek holds!! 5*-4 to Gil. C'mon then let's serve this one out to love please.

Bet 16 - Alona Bondarenko v Nadia Petrova

I just can't resist this one. Odds are astronomically out in my very humble opinion. I would go as far to say that in my book I would have had Alona as a very slight favourite.

Crunch time I guess for this challenge and really putting myself on the line here. No way on this earth is Petrova a 1.5 shot here.

All in LAY before the off

2-0* Odds almost the same as at 1-0 :(
2*-1 Alona had a chance to break again but Petrova held Maybe should get out now??
2-2* Break :( Now we need another please Alona!!
Crazy low odds on Petrova here we nearly had 3-0 yet when 2-2 people backing her down to 1.4??? 2-2 30-30 and still below sp!!
BP!!! Take it!!! Saved :( BP#2 This Time!!! Saved with an ace :o
BP#3 3rd time lucky? Noooo :(

Bondarenko should have been 4*-1 up now instead it's 2*-3. Sometimes it just doesn't go your way. Still a hold here and she'll get Petrova next time :)
3-3* Nice service game now apply the pressure!!

Jeez 3-3* deuce and still SP!!
3*-4 Held from Deuce :( Another strong hold needed to wake up this market then!!
4-4* Now for the break and then hold for set :)
4*-5 Petrova holds to love is ominous :( C'mon Alona keep it going girl!!
5-5* A great time for a hold to love :)
FFS 5-5 30-30 and 2 ticks above SP??????
BP!!!!! pffft saved with another bloomin ace :(

Bet 6: Profit: £10.79 Bank: £27.10

So all to do tomorrow as originally I should have been getting to £218.07!!!! That may be pushing it somewhat but there is plenty to go at tomorrow so you never know! ;)

For an outline of what the challenge is all about read this: Challenge Overview

In Answer to Arodd's Question!

Even though he didn't actually post it up in a comment ;) I found it again in the chat and will try to answer it as best I can.

The Question was: How do you deal with greed?

That is a tough question as one could argue that my entire philosophy of punting is based on greed, as I suppose is a Bookmakers!

If you realise the concept that bookmakers know that winning punters do indeed always put their winnings back in, then this is probably the first thing you need to address in your own style, so that you too do not fall foul of this. However as a compounding gambler myself I can hardly preach!

Personally I try not to think of money as money but instead look at profit or loss purely as a percentage of bank. I also do not consider the money in my Betfair account as mine until I withdraw it.

Both these things go some way to help me distance the financial transaction of placing a bet with real money and as such emotion. I have had matches where I have lost £1,000's, however losing 100% of bank is the same whether your bank is £10 or £1,000 in terms of percentage. Both have the same outcome... a zero balance. If you also consider your wins in the same regard then the euphoria associated with a win is also dissipated.

This is probably the fundamental part. Two things keep people gambling! Firstly the euphoria of a win and the urge to get that again, secondly the need to regain your losses or "chasing" which is nigh on impossible to eradicate.

This probably hasn't actually answered the question, but if you remember not to personalise your gambling it is a start I guess.

One last thing always remember that Gordon Gecko was wrong when he said "Greed is Good". Instead adopt as your mantra:

"Green is Good, Greed is Bad!!"

Bet 6 - Potito Starace v Evgeny Donskoy

Well well. An Italian against a Russian in Russia and the market thinks there is a fix taking place!

5k Challenge

Sunday, 18 October 2009

The 5 day Challenge!!

Well it all started on the Thursday before August bank holiday this year. I had just over £66 in my account and decided to set myself a ludicrous target of £10,000 by the Monday night!

Technically it failed as I had to reload another £100 when I got wiped out. However from around £100 on Sunday afternoon I reached the £10,000 target on the Thursday night.

For those that didn't catch it here is the link:

The 10k Challenge

I am withdrawing all my money from Betfair apart from a small, yet significant, amount. More on that later!! I have made more than my £5,000 monthly target so far in October so am happy to use my time on some fun stuff :)

Now to the rules of the challenge:
All in every bet... obviously ;)
Anything goes :)
I have the right to change the rules at any given time :)

So what is my starting bank and target I hear you cry?????

Well as you may have noticed I have some google adsense ads on this blog (please click generously!!!). Well Google does a nice thing by paying me a few pennies for every click and so far I have amassed the princely some of £22.14!!

However many people knock Google adsense and say you can't make money from them. Therefore my challenge previously on the forum was to prove the doubters wrong and here it is to prove bloggers wrong :)

I will aim to turn my £22.14 Google Adsense revenue into £5,000 by Friday night!!

Thus proving that you can indeed earn £5,000 a week from your blog courtesy of google adsense (with a little help from Betfair)

With an average of 10% per market I need 57 wins to achieve so 12 per day
Monday Target: £69.48
Tuesday Target: £218.07
Wednesday Target: £684.40
Thursday Target: £2147.96
Friday Target: £5,000.00 :) Easy as that!!! LOL

Please comment under each bet as well as in the chat section as then a record of it will be kept and I can answer questions about my sanity etc rather than miss them on the chat.

I am also going to try and change the settings so others can post blogs about my progress. :)

This may be a short challenge or it may succeed who knows?? But one thing is for sure it should be fun.

Please do not copy my style of punting as it can cause your bank balance to go down(fast) as well as up!

Happy Punting :)
