It's a week largely dominated for me by the world snooker championship which I have been watching obsessively though not really betting on. I’ve worked through a couple more bonuses and had fun with Seanie Mac who have limited my account, although still honoured my free bet which I now need to work out how to use!
I’ve backed Judd Trump to win the snooker title at odds of around 15/1 and with him having won his first 2 matches and in the quarters I trade on this at Betfair to leave me £8 up if he wins it with no risk. Very small stakes but I’m new to all this!
I watch my hockey team win the Sussex Plate final for the first time in their history – a thrilling 4-3 win, however don’t do any betting due to this taking up the whole day and drinking in the evening
I take a nice sharb at William Hill shop thanks to the TGT weekly shop coupon email, getting £50 on Liverpool at 1.9 and getting much lower odds to lay, I add a bit to it to turn a profit either way in one of only a few sharbing experiences I've had. This means Gerrard’s wayward backpass is not as costly to me as it is to their title chances.
Day Profit Loss: +£3
A quiet day I move float into Smarkets as it’s 2% commission there and have a look at some new account offers for the week. I still have a large amount of float locked in Betsafe so need to get this moved out.
Day Profit / Loss: £0
I find good odds at Betsafe on the Real / Munich game and do my whole remaining wager on this backing Munich and laying at a higher rate so I come out in profit despite their hammering. I also back +4.5 goals in play at 888Sport, which means with a bet tomorrow I can take advantage of their free £10 bet for 2 in play £10 bets. 4 goals are scored so this loses a small amount.
Day Profit Loss: +£15
I open a Vernons account they have a £25 no risk welcome bonus as long as first bet is loser. I back a horse called wounded warrior and lay it to £20, meaning a £70 profit if it comes in. It loses. I open a 188 account and need to wager £250 to get a free £50 bet. First bet £50 on Chelsea to draw it’s 1-1 at half time. I use my 2nd £10 bet at 888 Sport backing them to win. It finishes 3-1 Atletico. The Albatross completes the day watching Trump get beat no loss here, but no win in offing now.
Day Profit / Loss: -£10
I have free bets galore, £25 at Seanie Mac, £25 at Vernons and £10 at 888Sport. I continue wagering for 188 backing HT Draw/FT Juventus it’s 0-0 at half time but stays that way so that loses me a fiver. I back a horse at Vernons with my free bet… it is only horse in race to fall so with lay I’m £20 up. I waste £2 backing a hot tip on Betfair radio for another race at 5/1…. Finishes 2nd. Still up for the day though!
Day Profit Loss: +£13
Week Profit Loss: +£21
I still have £35 of free bets to use, and halfway to a free £50 at 188. I have not had one actual back come in this week so it’s a bloody good job I have been laying or my float would have taken a hammering!
