Day 23… Shocker!

Hey all,

What a shocker of a day! ‘Pfft,’ I’m glad it’s over, honestly, I am.

I’ve had it all today: caught in-play twice—once on a small level and once pretty badly—plus an internet connection failure that nearly gave me a heart attack.

Some poor trades, losing my cool, and just general stress! But life goes on! Haha.

Betfair Connection Down

This is the moment when my connection completely cut out at match point!

I had to reset my router and pray that it didn’t go against me. Fortunately, the match was halted due to poor weather. After resetting my router, I just hedged up, although I’m not sure when the rest of the match will be played. I’ll probably give up on that one now, as the players are unlikely to continue playing exactly as they were.

On the other hand, the racing was an absolute disaster!

I became a bit emotionally attached to the market after being stung in-play, which led to a series of errors. They didn’t need to happen, but at least it wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t cope with it.

I’m sure trying to juggle the horses and learn tennis at the same time will eventually pay off, and more…

Betfair Trading Results

The markets today, pre-race trading, felt really manipulated too.

I could see at points very large stakes working in conjunction with each other to force prices to go where they might not necessarily have gone—strange stuff. It probably didn’t help how I was feeling either.

  1. Try and look at the bigger picture. You’ll learn a lot more about how tennis markets operate if you give it your full attention not half hardheartedly flipping between the 2:30 and Murray match.

    They don’t move in the same ways so really need your full concentration. It’s not as if missing the afternoons racing will be a massive blow in the long run, especially if you manage to crack those lucrative tennis markets 😉 Wimbledon isn’t going to be on forever and half your profits probably come from the night stuff so might be worth taking a couple of afternoons off.

  2. Hi Daniel…. i seriously dobt it, there is no value to it and its sheer lunacy.

    Anon… your completely correct. for that very reason i might even do this today. got an angle in on the tomic gasquet match so think ill try there.
