put 1k into betfair on monday. have set a target of £30 a day. done it for 4 days now with no problems so far. not risking more than half my account. not posting bets on here cos if i cant post i just get every1 saying aftertiming this aftertiming that and so on.

does any1 else do this sort of thing?

I think you'll find everyone does the same kind of thing, it is a betting exchange after all.......I tried to buy some groceries on here yesterday but BF told me they only do bets

i really cant see this £30 a day stuff, sure it can work but if u win £30 on the 12.15 lingie, then what just quit the rest of the day why not go for a big win and if u lose it no big deal, your going to have days where you lose bigger money anyway so i dont see why some people bet like this, but if it works, gl to u

£30 a day is £10k if it goes well for a year. ive been laying large prices for £5-10 at a time. so anything between 2-5 bets per day

How will you react if, sorry when one wipes out half your bank?
Report Super Hans November 19, 2009 9:26 PM GMT
So you lose half your bank when one of the large priced horses/bets wins?

large prices will win in the end, then you would have blew your 30 days of good work making £30 a day..........then you will chase to get it back and in the end blow the lot...............have 100 bets, work out the average price, whatever the average price is you need to beat with your strike-rate.............if you lay 11/1 shots you need a 96% strike-rate...............if you bet 1/1 shots you need 60% strike-rate............

always a problem with daily targets, 1 bad day your f00ked, win 30 on the first, keep goin and hope for a good day, 10k a yr tax free is fine but u have to win that 30 EVERYDAY first, why not go for the 100 if you get of to a good start so any losses arent 2 damagable
Report wilson November 19, 2009 9:39 PM GMT
You have 4 winning days and need another 60+ days to get to 3k without laying a winner. Good luck with that project.

Given your track record Nasri I suggest you withdraw it now. Your money is NOT safe here!

I'm as naive as the next man but cannot see your startegy

a) being worth the hassle and stress
b) working

Betfair gives something approaching a 100% book. Unless you have an edge, you'll lose money at your commission rate on average.

Math's is a **.
