Euro 2016 journey...

11 Sep 14 00:53
So after being away from Betfair for a while (for my own sanity) I thought I start getting back into the swing of things, taking a more focused approach on the football market and taking it steady, and cashing in regularly so I don't get the urge to blow everything. I learnt the hard way through Exchange Games, so I steer clear away from them now. I started my Betfair season with a bankroll of £25, and got a lucky strike with Alexis Sanchez scoring the First Goal netting me £145. Not having much confidence in the Premier League, I looked to the Euro 2016 schedule, it looks like a nice steady schedule I was after, as I don't think I can commit to the demands and unpredictability of the Premier League. There were some International Friendlies going on as well, I dipped into these including a few others. In future I'll stick to Internationals (mostly)

I'll return back around Matchday 2 - looking to be a bit more prepared with the matches being played.

Cheers.

P.S. The cheeky tennis loss was in the US Open Final, was optimistic there would be an Asian win, but those Eastern Europeans are just too good!

£100 to £1000 in 2014

12 Oct 13 19:26
I've been on Betfair for about 3 years now, generally experimenting with the platform on and off. I'm going to spend 2014 taking a more organised approached to Betfair, and invest £100 to make £1000 or more in 2014, can it be done? My main interests are, Football, Tennis, Sit & Go Poker, I'm generally going to stick to making bets on the website than using platforms like BetAngel, etc. as I think I still need to understand what I'm doing when I take my strategies forward, sitting down with good old pen and paper didn't hurt anyone.

Also in the process, I will be experimenting with bots, but at this stage only for analysis purposes with the view to simulate strategies.

So far I've given myself a head start, I'm £5.12 up : - )
