Shahar Peer v Magdalena Rybarikova

Back to the tennis now for the rest of the night. I'm not sure when I'll get the chance to sleep?

Anyway Peer has opened up a 5-0* lead in the first set so I'll take the 1.20 on offer. Crazy bet I hear you scream as the set isn't done yet and we have set won odds. But I feel that the price may drop a few more ticks with a break here.

15-40 Impressive stuff from Peer according to the Scoreboard anyway as I have no stream for this LOL 30-40 ... Deuce Perhaps I spoke too soon. Holds though the SB froze. Odds lower already and Rybarikova held????

Peer to serve it out then! Which She does. Set Peer 6-1

Now Rybarikova to serve 1st this set so an early break would be nice. By the way the odds did drop 3 ticks or so like I thought. Now 1.17. 1.16 Now. Mind you she's 1.08 on Bet365.

Hmm what is going on now? Long delay and Bet365 have suspended betting! Well it isn't rain cos the stream for the Pennetta match has bright sunshine!

Back on Rybarikova serving 0-15 ... 0-30 ...  15-40 ... and Break
1-0* Peer leads. Consolidation is the key in WTA though! And what a way to do it with a hold to love.
2-0* Another Break? Yes
3*-0 Great stuff from Peer! Just checked she was 1.70's before the start!
4-0 Holds to 30. Give us a Bagel Shahar!!
5*-0 It's on!! GSM B-A-G-E-L!!!!

Peer Wins 6-1 6-0
Profit: £81.80

Tony West v Dave Chisnall

PDO World Darts Championship again. Need to get back on track after losing over half my bank in the last match!!


Chisnall is 2-0 up in the first leg and looks on form so I'm on at 1.12. Set Chisnall against the throw!
1-0 Chisnall and throwing first this set.

He takes the 1st leg. He's in here... 2-0!! Nice. And a 180 to start the next leg! 3-0 and the set!!

Chisnall leads 2 Sets to 0!! Can he take another against the throw? I don't think West has won a leg yet! He has now!! 1-0 West. 1-1. Can he get the break now? 2-1 West. Oooh West gets a break for the set.

2-1 Chisnall with the throw this set! OMG suddenly he's not hitting the doubles!! West with a chance. Nope Chisnall 1-0.  Break opportunity for Chisnall. 2-0. Nice and easy then!  3-0 and the set!

3-1 Chisnall. A nice early break on order then please as the tennis is on soon. 180 West!! 1-0 West. C'mon Chisnall. Break West for 2-0. Looks like he's going to have to seal the deal in the next set on his own throw! 3-0 and the set!!

3-2 Chisanll with the throw this time! No messing about now please! Chisnall 146 Checkout ? Nope Chisnall 52 then? Nope. West still not on a finish. D10 ... Chisnall leads 1-0 Now for a break please. Chisnall 121 Checkout? Yes!! Breaks for 2-0. Poor start though here. Chisnall 164 Checkout? Nope West not on a finish yet though. Chisnall 64? Yess

Chisnall Wins 4-1
Profit: £47.26

Brian Woods v Robert Wagner

BDO World Darts 2 nd Round again.

Woods leads 2-0 in sets so I've got on at 1.12/1.13 hoping he can break here for a 3-0 lead as up to now he has been the better player by far.

He had the chance to beak the throw but fluffed it 1-0 Wagner. Hope it doesn't cost him!

1-1 Can he nick the break now then? Hmm suddenly his darts are starting to stray!
2-1 Wagner. Need to take this leg to keep the pressure on. Oof missed the checkout and Wagner takes advantage for the set! Woods still has the set lead against the throw though so a hold he and the odds will come tumbling back down... I hope!

Willy van de Wiel v Ted Hankey

2nd Round BDO World Championship Darts again.

Got on Hankyt at 1.07 just as van de Wiel pulls a set back for 1-2. Hankey has the throw this set though so 1.07 seems fair enough!!

1-0 Hankey now for a break to make this set nice and easy please! Hankey has a chance!!
2-0 Nice now seal the deal! Oof 3 x Double tops missed!! But takes the set!

1-3 in sets to Hankey. van de Wiel has the throw this set but I fancy Hankey to take it for the match!

2-0 Hankey!!
2-1 Willy pulls one back

Hankey Wins 4-1
Profit: £49.82

Stephen Bunting v Tony O'Shea

A bit of darts now!! From the BDO World Championship! (Pub tournament)

Got on at 1.4/1.15 when O'Shea was 2-0 up in Sets hoping he can bring this home!

He has the break in the 3rd set so lets have 3-0 please! Ooh  he let Bunting in there but he gets the set 3-0!

Has the throw this set so let's bring it home Tony! Hmmm Looks like Bunting will break the throw 1 st leg! And he does!

Break back would be good please Tony. Some of these BBC Camera angle are terrible!
O'Shea with a chance! Yess!! 1-1 I'll take the 1.05 and green out I think. £61.60 on Both

O'Shea Wins 4-0
Profit: £61.60

Dinamo Moscow v Trentino

Champions League Volleyball here as a little variation from the tennis!

Dinamo lead 2-1 in sets and are 13-9 up in the 4th when I get on at 1.10.

I do hope that moving away from the tennis will not be my downfall!!

At 14-11 I'm taking the guaranteed green at 1.06 thankyou. £23.38 on both!

Dinamo Win 3-1
Profit: £23.38

Louk Sorensen v Stephane Robert

If I'm honest I don't believe I've even heard of either of these players so ordinarily I suppose it should be one to avoid!!

But I'll get on anyway!! LOL Robert leads 6-2 4*-1 so I think it's as safe as it can be to take a 1.02.

5-1* Break for GSM would be nice! MP! ... Deuce ... MP #2 ... GSM

Robert Wins 6-2 6-1
Profit: £11.96

Denis Istomin v Dudi Sela

The score is 6-1 5-2* to Sela and I'm on at odds of 1.03/1.04. Hoping for a nice quick 3% return.

I have run a nice bath so it better not go on any longer as I need to try and soak away my man flu like symptoms. God this giving up smoking is painful!! But apparently that is a good sign as it means my body is aggressively healing itself and clearing out all the crap from 18 years of smoking! I just wish it would either hurry up or do it a tad more gently!!!

Any way Sela has Won

Sela Wins 6-1 6-2
Profit: £22.25

Ryler Deheart v Younes El Aynaoui

El Aynaoui won the 1st set TB and now we have a 2nd set TB.

With the score at 3-3 I decide to take a gamble on the hometown boy winning at odds of 1.52.

And out at 1.23 when 3-4 for £91.08 on Both.

Al Aynaoui Wins 7-6 7-6
Profit: £91.08

Florent Serra v Julian Reister

Score was 6-3 2-6 5-1* when I got on at 1.02. Crazy odds to back I know especially in final set in WTA but I'm confident enough.

Czink wins 6-2 2-6 6-1
Profit: £8.83

Matthew Ebden v Jurgen Melzer

Ebden leads 7-5 5*-1 when I get on at 1.02. Just trying to nick a few quid here hope it doesn't screw me!!

0-15 ... 15-15 ... 15-30 Two more c'mon!! ... 30-30 ... MP Take It!!! Or is it 2 scoreboards up and one says GP other has MP!! Deuce now anyway! Gp?? Deuce again. Definitely MP now!!! ... Deuce! Odds say MP protennis says MP now!! Pfft Deuce! MP #(who knows!!) Take it!!! GSM

Vesnina Wins 6-1 6-4
Profit: £32.18

Elena Baltacha v Ioana Raluca Olaru

Olaru is leading 6-2 3-0* when I get on but the liquidity is very poor so not all matched at 1.09 yet.

All matched as Baltacha goes to 30-0 in her service game.
3*-1 Don't stuff it up now Olaru! Nice easy hold is desired please. Thankyou!
4-1* Now for the break please.
4*-2 Baltacha held to 15. Another easy hold from Olaru required.

Hmm this is not a good time for the scoreboard to start sticking! 40-15 ... 40-30 ... Game
5-2* Break for the match then? 0-15 ... 0-30 ... 0-40 ... GSM

Olaru Wins 6-2 6-2
Profit: £33.35

Kaia Kanepi v Na Li

Kanepi bossed the opening set taking it 6-1. However Na Li got the early break in the second and went back to odds on.

Kanepi levelled at 3-3 when I decided to back her to serve for a lead!! Yes I am aware of the folly of backing the WTA serve! But with odds of 1.63 and 1.68 it was not to be sniffed at!!

And there's the hold for 4-3* a break now would be nice!

Bit of luck off the net chord gives 0-15 but every little helps :-) 15-15 darn missed the green up there. 15-30 ... c'mon!! Odds too high imho so not greening just yet! 30-30 Greed getting the better of me! BP! Take It!!!

5*-3 Kanepi serving for the match c'mon!!! 15-0 ... 30-0 ... And I'm getting out!!! 40-0
£135.55 on Both 40-15 ... GSM

Kanepi Wins 6-1 6-3
Profit: £135.55

Virginie Razzano v Monica Niculescu

Fancied Razzano from the off at around 1.4 but chose to do other things. But I certainly fancy her to break for the match here at odds of 1.10.

Score is 7-5 5-4* C'mon the break!! Get in!!

Razzano Wins 7-5 6-4
Profit: £22.06

Bernard Tomic v Oleksandr Dolgopolov Jr

Quick one this! Got on with Dolgopolov leading 6-4 5*-4 30-15 and there were odds of 1.04 available!! I'll have some of that please!!

He duly takes the next 2 points for GSM.

Dolgopolov Wins 6-4 6-4
Profit: £8.50

Alice Cornet v Marina Erakovic

I quite fancied an upset here but I'm going against my initial instinct when the score is 5-4* in the 1st set Erakovic to serve. I just hope Cornet can get a break here and take the 1st set.

My thinking is that even if Erakovic takes the first set from here the market should be high enough to trade out in the 2nd set but a break would give me some lovely green.

And we have a 30-40 from 30-0!! Take It!!! Took the green out at 1.29 on BP rather than wait. But Cornet Broke for the first set. Never mind Green is Good!

£20.33 on Both

Hmmm can't really understand why odds of 1.03 are still available when Cornet is 5-2* up in the 2nd so I'll nick a few extra quid and hope I don't get my fingers burnt!

Erakovic holds for 5*-3 Cornet got to serve it out now then! No French choking please!
Uh oh!! DF brings up 15-30! 30-30 ... MP ... Deuce! ... MP #2 ... GSM

Cornet Wins 6-4 6-3
Profit: £26.52

New Years Resolution!!

Hoping to get a bet on pretty soon with Razzano appealing and the chance of Erakovic with a possible upset but will obviously wait and try and get involved at the business end. However I thought I would share my latest milestone!!

It have now been a non smoker for 96 hours and 24 minutes!!! To be honest though technically I've also been tea total for about 94 hours!! :-)

I forget to mention the suffering I'm going through as a side affect though! Not cravings as such as they go pretty quickly, but the coughing as my lungs clean out the crap and my nose is just streaming which is apparently another sign that my body is repairing itself after over 18 years of abuse!

Perhaps I should use the fags like the guy in the picture to stop the flow from my nose.
