[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to the latest instalment in the A-Z of Better Punting. I hope it reaches you well. Heed the advice below, couple it with some of the hints and tips I've offered earlier and watch that wallet expand. [b]H is for Honesty[/b] Be honest with yourself – and those around you - about your betting. Your betting career is primarily your concern, but if you’re consistently losing money this will affect your life and the life of those around you. If you feel like your betting is getting out of control, pack it in for a while and look at what went wrong. This, however, cannot possibly happen if you keep an accurate, up to date spreadsheet of all your bets, regardless of their outcome. You’ll soon sort yourself out. If you’re lacking the willpower to...

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my latest blog. Last night's darts was about the worst I've ever done, with only a 50 per cent strike rate, but as The Power has never let me down before, his victory over Wade was made all the more sweet as I didn't pile in until he'd gone 1-0 behind. To get on Taylor at 1.46 in a first to eight match is manna from heaven. I digress. Here's the latest instalment in my best-selling A-Z of Better Punting. I hope you enjoy it. My new system that I'm currently paper trading is looking like a corker, so keep your eyes peeled for further details later. [b]G is for Gambling[/b] Yup, there are no certain things in life, apart from the fact that if you don’t research your bets thoroughly before you place them then you’re bound to lose. And the bookie...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening & welcome to my latest blog. More darts tips coming up soon, ladies & gentlemen, but first another brief instalment in my best-selling 'A-Z of Better Punting'. I hope you enjoy it, put my advice into practise and reap the inevitable financial rewards. [b]E is for Ecstasy[/b] In other words, don’t bet while drunk or on drugs. Sorry to sound like a vicar here, but betting while drunk or on drugs is a disaster waiting to happen. Your judgement is skewed, you’ll spend loads more money than you would sober and you’ll make all the wrong decisions, resulting in an empty wallet with a hangover around the corner. Don’t even bet when you’re a bit tired either. Always have a clear head when you’re betting. This way you’ll stay in control of your finances...

HELLO, good evening and welcome to my latest blog. I'm going to go snooker loopy again tomorrow (if I have time - I must admit I never thought it would take this long to count all the change I've accumulated down the back of my settee). For the time being, please enjoy my latest [i]A-Z of Better Punting[/i] contribution for your collection. [b]C is for calculations[/b] No offence to the innumerate (i.e. the millions of chumps who spunk their money on the National Lottery week in, week out), but if you can’t calculate the odds of winning then you shouldn’t be reading this. For the record, the average odds of winning the National Lottery are 14,000,000/1. That’s fourteen million to one. Yup. You’ve got two chances – slim and none, and slim’s out of town (I nicked that one...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening & welcome to my blog. I hope it reaches you all well. Here’s the second instalment of my A-Z guide to better punting. Read it, enjoy it, follow the advice and watch that wheelbarrow gradually fill up with cash. I’ll be putting some more snooker, darts and football betting advice up very soon. [b]B is for Betting-in-Running[/b] Lots and lots of free money can be won while betting in running – if you’ve researched your event properly that is. Markets move like crazy until the race or match starts – if betting in running is available, the markets keep on moving right until the end of the race or match. Knowing when to place your bet, therefore, is just as important as knowing which type of bet to place and which event/team/horse/dog to bet on. In some...

[b]HELLO[/b], good morning and welcome to my latest blog. I hope it reaches you well. As a little aside to my usual tips on darts, snooker and football, here’s the start of an A-Z guide to better punting. It should stand you all, my loyal band of followers, in better stead when you make your punting decisions and overall make you all a little richer in the process. [b]A is for Advice[/b] Cut out all gambling on fixed odds betting terminals (FOBTs – you know the ones – there’s usually four in every bookmaker these days, surrounded by people desperate to give you tips on how to win, despite them being less than successful themselves) and their internet equivalents. Virtual roulette, blackjack and so on are called ‘fixed odds’ games because the odds are fixed in the favour ...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to my blog. I hope it reaches you well. Today I’ve prepared a few notes on trading for you, my loyal followers, in the expectation that you all ultimately enjoy a lifestyle as exhilarating, fulfilling and generally spectacular as mine. Sorry it’s a little brief, but I’ve just had an unexpected visit from a heavy-drinking friend of mine, Alf ‘The Cistern’ Kenilworth, who needs some advice as to which roadside assistance organisation to join. I digress. Trading is where you can make money without having any liability, in other words if you’re sufficiently cunning and quick-witted then you can back a competitor to win at high odds, lay it at the same liability as your bet stake at lower odds and end up with a free bet. If the market shifts...

[b]HELLO[/b], good evening and welcome to my blog. I hope it reaches you well. Some of my followers are interested in knowing why they should lay odds, rather than back. Laying can be as much fun as betting, and as profitable, in the right circumstances. A lay bet means that you effectively become the bookmaker (without necessarily having to don a ropey sheepskin coat) and decide which odds you want to offer to potential punters. In a football match between United and City, for example, you’d make a profit if you laid City and the match ended in a United win or a draw. If you laid United, but City won or it was a draw then you’d win. If you laid the draw and either of the two sides won then you’d pick up your winnings. In “two outcome only” events such as the major knock-out...

[b]IT'S A[/b]… it’s a… it’s a… it's a sin. No it’s not. It’s a bit of harmless fun. Gambling, that is. We’re not all as rich as we’d like and we haven’t got a bottomless pit of cash (although, to be brutally honest, I virtually have). Spending money on gambling, however, is often seen as a massive sin. Next time someone harps on about what a ‘waste of money’ gambling is and how you’d be much better saving it or spending it ‘more wisely’, show them this. All prices are accurate-ish circa March 2011. [b]What can £100 buy you nowadays?[/b] 33 pints of beer - the equivalent of at least four hangovers and an increase in waist size, baggy eyes and a red nose 17 packets of cigarettes - not that good for you the last time my butler ‘Daft’ Frankie...
