My comments on Yorkhill were on another thread well before I posted about him here.You conveniently forget I'm not a professional,I punt because I enjoy it.You also forget I work and live in a rural area,I have no interest in driving around trying to filch prices that may or may not be there.Ye may be making money but I doubt it.TellTheKing would have a better chance than DJ876 because he is more flexible.DJ876 is interesting and I actually value his opinion but the poor fellow is tortured by rules,he's not a natural has no feel for gambling and you get the impression that a losing run would tip him over the edge.
I feel my effort is wasted on you Wildman but I will explain my perspective one last time to you.
The quote which represents your philosophy is what hinders your punting.
You proclaim rules to be a hindrance but there are exactly what enables your edge (whether that be hard work or networking) to flourish.
Yes it would e a negative if your rules were taken from a book,my rules have evolved from years of experience.
A lack of rules (ie excessive staking or too many bets) or flexibility is what will damage and destroy your perceived edge no matter how hard your work.
Rules to me are effective risk and bank control management which in my opinion are of paramount importance to sustainable punting.
PS, Dislike using horrible buzz words such as edge/networking but they explain it quickest.
Workrider,I obviously back plenty of losers also.I probably use up to 25/30 offices (PP,LADS,Spoils) but might only use a choice of 6 or 7 each day. My average bet in each shop would be in the range of €40 -€60 so wouldn't attract much attention.
There are many ways nowadays with hedging devices available in your hand to integrate yourself within a shop and let's be honest the staff are hardly sharp.
I had to collect an in running hurling docket a few weeks ago,the price expanded as I placed the bet and they tried to pay me out at a defaulted 5/6 (instead of 5/4) because it was incorrect.When I queried the assistant they said perhaps there was a R4.
Now you know as well as anyone that I lack tolerance or patience so you can imagine how difficult it was for me to bite my hand.
