Ok, this is going to be very ugly viewing. There are few positives that can be taken from this obviously, but I know where I went wrong and was happy to take these risks at the time. Basically, I had a very big bet on New England Patriots to win their AFC Championship NFL game with New York Jets and paid the price. Tom Brady who is usually very reliable and trustworthy had a very poor game and looked passionless throughout. This cost me dear, as I was trading out for a big loss before half-time.
To make matters worse, I also lost big money on Venus Williams a few days later. That really did put the end to the worst week I've had since this time last year. It was really bad timing at its very worst. Venus Williams lost the first set on a tie-break to Sandra Zahlavova then got injured at the start of the second which resulted in her barely being able to move, let alone swing her racket. Everyone thought it was game, set and match, so they piled into Zahlavova at very short odds. However, after a 10 minute injury time-out, Williams came back to miraculously win the set 6-0 then go onto to take the match. This cost me well over 1k. Saying that, all it has done is wipe out my January profit. I can take this hit and start again. Any other questions or comments, let us know.
Btw, I have 2 Betfair accounts, so because this was such a bad week, I started to use my alternative account from the 24th onwards - so that's why you see 2 different accounts below.
