US Open Tennis

I watched the start of the US Open yesterday. The pick of the first round has to be Paul-Henri Mathieu's win against Hewitt. I don't think I've ever seen him play as well actually. I've already had a good start, but it's always like this in the early rounds where the matches are predictable if you are careful. I had a decent treble on Oudin, Cilic and Schiavone @ evens as well.

I have tickets for Arthur Ashe Stadium on the 7th and I'm undecided whether I will go to the semi-finals on the 11th. While I'm there, I'm also going to watch the NY Yankees play Baltimore Orioles on the 8th and Thierry Henry's new team New York Red Bulls who play Colorado Rapids on the 10th. That means no Betfair due to it not being allowed in the US. I could do with the break I think.

I've been a bit more careful this last week after the losses I had last week and it's gone quite well. This is how it stands now (23rd-31st) + £1,310.50. I'll update things later after today's play.

7 Day Update

I've put-off updating this over the last few days as I've tried to concentrate on getting my Betfair situation back on track, which has hit a wall in the last week or so. To keep things consistent though, I will still continue to post updates on here. Just to show that it's not all about the wins. It's been a bad week overall. I was probably due one.

I got my Betfair bank size to around £14k 2 weeks ago and now it stands at £8k (with various withdrawals) so I am back in the process of rebuilding again and trying to reach small targets.

I'm going to the US Open Tennis in New York on the 7th September until 12th thanks to winning on Betfair, so seeing as you can't use Betfair in the US, it's the ideal chance to use it as a break.

Gold Coast Titans v Parramatta Eels

This is probably the best book I've ever had on Betfair, and an example of when things go right. I layed Parramatta when they were 12-0 up at 1.2 and are now losing 22-12 with 10 mins to go, so I feel quite fortunate to win £900+ whatever the outcome is.

6 Month Update

Today I asked Betfair if they could email me a 6 month profit and loss summary from my account. I was quite happy with the results overall, although I guessed it was somewhere around this mark. Also, my turnover on Betfair (bets made) during this time is not far from £1.5 million at £1,417,486. Sounds more than it actually is though, as anyone who uses Betfair will know.

February 2nd 2010 - 3rd August 2010: +£18,637

My strongest market has been Football by a long way making +£10,614, which is more than I thought, and Rugby League (NRL & Super League) my second making +£4,176, with my only real negative coming from MLB losing -£3,088, so I think it's best if I avoid that sport from today.
