Was painful watching Clark Saturday, he was all over the show, scrambling saves a total collapse, then Harman joined the top 3, but Scheffler came strong and done it again. Clarkey went erratic last week too when it mattered.
Report Platini March 18, 2024 11:40 AM GMT
Painful is def the word, Loui. A painful lesson learned there regarding trading and taking profit in running.
After Day 2 was over, Clark was 4 clear and priced as short as 7/4 on here.  I could have greened up, and taken around £150 profit, but instead I just took my £50 stake back (on all my selections) by laying at 7/4 and letting the rest run.  £450 profit was the prize, if he won, so I gave up £150 for the chance of winning 3 times that.

But looking back now, that was a poor strategy. It was only halfway, 4 shots is not that much at half way, esp with Scheffler, Schauffele and a few others lurking. It might have been the right move after Day 3 maybe, but not after Day 2.

I think the lesson is green up early if the profit is decent enough (I think 3x your total stake is decent). Even if your selection goes on to win, there's every chance he trades at a much bigger price before the end, and you can use a little of your green profit to back him again and boost your profit.

How did you get on, Loui ?  Did you trade any of it ?  What about you Rasp ?  I know you like to trade a bit. How did you play it ?
Report loui March 18, 2024 1:33 PM GMT
I didn’t trade out platini, but I had a bit on scheffler at 5/1 on another betting site that was doing freebies for new customers, but agree with you with getting out when Clark was wobbling. Thing was I also had Harman who come through the field to 2 shots behind Shauffelle on Saturday so my cash held up despite Clark struggling. Bit annoying they both finished 1 shot behind, but that’s golf betting, highly volatile.

think it's a bit of a lottery lads. had thomas last week and he plays like a weekend hacker misses the cut. probably hoses up this week when i've chosen Min Woo Lee who was 2 under last week but this week i'd have probbaly beaten him myself!

we're seeing more and more 300-1000 shots going into 50/1 and lower a lot this season. this week has been littered with them. the more i watch the more i don't think anyone will get near scheffler at augusta. nobody seems to have his killer instinct at all
Report JayTrumpOldTomDubbl March 23, 2024 9:45 AM GMT
Senyatta I would agree with that summing up of the current situation. The cut line this week is -1. With 22 players on level par, and a further 17 or so on +1 plenty good players gone, including Spieth, Burns, Putnam and Harman (+2). Schenk was lobbing along nicely enough till he gave away two shots at the last. Probably ruling him out of reaching a top 10 finish bar a miracle. Seems anyone can win these tournaments now. Leona Maguire in with a shout in the LPGA. at -6.

yes. i can't be backing scheffler at 11/4. i'd fancy him more in a stronger field at a bigger price. he might not be that bothered this week and might try things out on course that he usually wouldn't.

the rest of the field don't fill me with any confidence. when you see guys like mackenzie hughes(50/1) and mitchell(40/1) you know there's not much potential in the win only market. clark for me at 14/1 - he's about the only player in that field that would have the cojones if he was in the mix sunday.
