It's a forced break because I am fighting a losing cause, and can't get hold of the bank I need in order to relieve the pressure and make it work. All I am getting is people looking on seeing loss after loss and getting the wrong impression because of it. The reality is, last year when I was successful as any person who does this full-time will tell you, I had access to a big betting/trading bank that helps them build their funds gradually with no pressure. I've not had over £1,000 in my Betfair bank March now, and before that mid-January during the Australian Open. That's twice this year. And it's no coincidence why I find myself in this position.
Last year when I made in the region of £27,000 my bank size never went below £2,000 for 7+ months from February 2010 to around September. It was at around £13,000 at it's highest in June in fact. It only started to go downhill at the bank-end of September during the US Open (funnily enough when I came home from New York as well).
I am still confident of making it pay big (I am still £14,000+ in profit lifetime on Betfair), but waiting here week after week playing with numerous "last chance" small banks is not working and it's getting me deeper into trouble.
