I've wanted to try one of these for awhile, and since I've lost about half of what I managed to build up betting just £2 in the last couple of weeks, my last bet betting a little more than usual on Man City to beat Burnley, (doh) what better time than now to try it.

I'm trying to be realistic, instead of going for the £2 to £1 million like a lot of people do... I think there's a decent chance I can run it up to around £200. But we'll see. I wanna try and keep to 1.1 to 1.5 shots, only betting on football since that's the only sport I have a decent knowledge on. If you wanna join in please do, also if you have any tips/advice I'd appreciate it.

Okay here it goes, really hope I win my first bet or this will be slightly embarrassing.

Bet 1 Chelsea v Man Utd: Under 4.5 goals @1.13

I would never try going from £2 to £1million. All my betting challenges have a strict limit of £500k from a starting bank of £4

Bet 1 Chelsea v Man Utd: Under 4.5 goals @1.13 WON £19.45

Woot. Didn't want to lose my first bet.

Bet 2 Liverpool V Birmingham: Liverpool to win @1.37

Alright I'm a Liverpool fan, and I know it's been a pretty terrible so far, but I think this is a good game for us, with the international break coming up Rafa and the team will really wanna end on a good note. Even with the injuries I think Liverpool should win this quite comfortably, I'm sure Birmingham will park the bus, but so far this season when the 'smaller' teams have come to Anfield and parked the bus, they got battered, so hopefully tomorrow will be the same.

Ok, good luck again, but you shouldn't bet on any team you support ;-)

I can see how that could be a bad idea, I'll try to avoid it in the future. And thanks for the good luck. =D

I immediately regret this. xD

Ugh, **ing Liverpool, as soon as I saw the team sheet I got nervous, I was under the impression both Aquilani and Torres would be starting. Not sure which hurts more, the result or the loss of £19. Live and you learn I guess. I think I prefer small bets to going all in, so whenever I decide to deposit again I don't think I'll be trying another one of these challenges. Haha.

AT LEAST I DIDN'T LOSE THE FIRST BET, WOOOOO!1!!
