I do not use on-line bookmakers, not for any strong reason.<br>I simply don’t like betting with the same bookmaker who is at liberty to close a winning account if he wishes.<br>I prefer to use several bookmakers.<br>Although the nearest is over a mile away, there are in fact six of these bookmakers in a sort of arc.
Also-<br>I like to see the winnings – as cash – in my own sweaty little hand after a bet.<br>It’s more satisfying somehow.
An ideal betting method for me would be something like the method in P.Kilgallons book "How to beat the Handicapper". Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â This consist of only 40 bets per year and<br>it picks 50% winners at odds such as 3/1, 5/1, 7/2, 7/1, 8/1 etc.
I’ve read the book and I still don’t know how he does it!<br>I’ve tried to do it papertrading and then gone broke!
I simply do not put cash down for real unless a system first makes money for me, papertrading only.<br>So I return to backing selected favourites the only method that works for me.
