    Hi guys, I just thought I’d stop by and see how everybody is getting on…. I see old Matron is still hanging in there, Dave Jay too….. but I didn’t see any mention of Snowman, Urban Dave, Bricoman etc….. have they all deserted ?????….. :biggrin:  its great to see you all doing well and the systems section still going…..<br>I was "chatting" to one of the older members about the MERD’s (MrE’s Rolling Doubles), and he jogged my doddering old memory banks and I suddenly got that urge to nip up for a visit….. I dont get "urges" very often these days, those wet towels and the electode insertions from Matron in the old Ward 7 days severely weakened those types of urges…. I told Matron at the time that Bromide woulda been a lot easier…. but I suspect he enjoyed his work…… hehehe…… good luck to you all, its great to visit the TRF forums again……<br>:biggrin:  :biggrin:  :biggrin:

    Welcome back MrE.

    I do hope you hang around this time; otherwise, more "electrode treatment" for you, with no vaseline this time!

    Urban Dave not been seen for years in this here parts – and  a few of the others you mention as well.

    Speak to you soon.

    Regards- Matron<br>:cool:

    Good to see you around MrE .. hope everything is going well with you and yours.

    Me and Matron are the only ones left from back then, but the new blood keeps the place ticking over.

    Have you still got the enthusiasm for the horses ??

    Hello Matron… and you Dave, how are you both ???<br>You asked if I was still doing the horses, the answer to that is yes…. I’ve always done them…. I’ve had a very profitable time over all but I will be the first to admit that March and April have been almost impossible for me to turn a profit…. I’ve had losing runs before, but not the amount I’ve had during the last two months, they have absolutely murdered me…..<br>It makes little difference really, its just that it bruises my ego…. I have not lost a lot of money because I stopped betting and will refrain until the tide turns, I still study religiously every day and keep many records, although the winners have been thin on the ground for 2 months, the previous 10 months have put me a long way in front and I dont doubt for one minute, that it will start to swing in my favour soon, you just gotta keep laffing aintcha…..<br>I’ve been extraordinarily lucky though because I’ve had a second string to my bow and have made a fair chunk of money from it…. you probably have guys on here that are doing it also, but its most definitely the easiest money I’ve ever earned…. if you had read my posting of 6 months ago, you will know what I refer too, its bonus hunting at Blackjack….. I sensed some doubt when I last mentioned it, so I never pushed it, the doubters wondered about the casinos continuing to give bonuses, there was a hiccup when the US stopped their countrymen from betting on the internet, the casinos lost 70% of its customer base, so there isn’t as many bonuses as there used to be, and its getting harder, but its still money for just a teensie weensie bit of effort….. I’ve been at it for 10 months now, my B/J banks has now reached a profit of £4,500, thats more than I made on the GG’s…… I’m now averaging about £300 per month……  :biggrin:   I’ve had a family tragedy along the way, but me and the missus have crawled out the other side a little sadder but hopefully stronger people…… and we got through it because we immersed ourselves into this "bonus hunting"….. it did us proud…..<br>I still am a stickler for staking, I dont think that’ll ever change…… lol…… its a pity that some of the others aint around, they were tremendous days back then and it was always a laugh down here with you lot of nutters… do you know, I think I’ve missed it…..<br>:biggrin:  :biggrin:  :biggrin:

    I am very well .. doing rather splendidly with the horses, by my own standards, but I don’t do systems so much anymore.

    I got a bit obsessed with creating an odds line and mainly just do that now .. getting a proper price about a horses chance seems to be the only thing that really works for me.

    Last year I was doing speed ratings, weight handicapping and horses to follow systems .. which was all right but didn’t really make enough profit to keep me interested. It also got very complicated and time consuming which I wasn’t really up for.

    Glad to hear all  is well though .. :cool:

    Yeah, things are fine….. I just get real wazzed off when my method doesn’t fire for a while, the staking takes care of it all and the bank is protected so there’s no worries whatsoever…. just me losing patience in my old age…..  :biggrin: <br>I was wondering if any of the guys were struggling too this past couple of months…. or is it just me…… probably me, doddering old git…. I’m 3 years younger than Matron, but the problem is that Matron is 4 years older than God…….. hehehe……. I have been hitting on another guy that I’ve met who is making really steady progress by betting E/W, his place bets keep him ticking over with a small profit being made, not much, but it keeps his bank healthy…. and the winners keeps him in beer money, thats all profit and he aint doing too bad out of it… he’s had winners at 12/1… 12/1… 8/1…. 9/2…. so prices are reasonable, but I’m considering betting ’em Place Only using the "Rolling Doubles" to gain a bit more value…… looks good on paper but I dont wanna wet my toes yet….. more data required before I dive in…… interesting though, saves me peddling my body on the streets…….<br>:biggrin:  :biggrin:  :biggrin:

    I think, if you can return any form of profit you are doing well.

    Why not try the "rolling doubles" with very small stakes? Mind you, a rolling double to you MrE – is starting off at a 500.00 pound wager!!:biggrin: :biggrin:

    You peddling your body on the streets? I think Amsterdam would be more up your street – sitting in a window in your red latex outfit to attract the punters’!

    It’s some thought, you trying to sell you body .. :biggrin: :biggrin:

    The rolling doubles would work quite well with favourites on the place market .. the e/w bets won’t do any good at all, because they are only profitable because they are a fraction of the win odds and don’t represent value to place.

    For example, the hoss that finished 3rd in the first at Brighton went off at 4/1, I backed it to win on BF @ 5.9 but it’s place odds were 1.4, when you would have got 4/5 at SP for the e/w part of the bet.

    It might be a good experiment to do rolling doubles (or trebles) on two or three favourite a day and see if you can make a point a day ? You’d have to win just over 50% of the time to be well in.

    :biggrin:   @ old Matron…..  I’d look OK in latex mate…. as long as its the maternity model……

    Dave…. yeah, I know your right of course, but I wasn’t considering E/W, just place only, and good value place prices at that…..  only betting at 2.00 or better, so that gives me even money for a place, thats just gotta be cracking value mate…… OK, it does appear that the majority of the selections are against an odds on fav, but this has produced 14 successful bets from the last 18…..  thats a LLS of 2 and a LWS of 6 (twice)….. thats since April 17th up to a loser today…… gotta be something worth getting stuck into there……<br>I would agree with you wholeheartedly that there’s no value at even money betting, I wouldn’t touch evens with your money, never mind using my own, but if its possible to link these into series of doubles/trebles, then there just has to be a profit in there somewhere….. 14 from 18 at a minimum price of evens, you’d murder them at levels without a staking plan….. I’ve gotta keep sniffin’ at this mate, at least until he gets a decent losing run…. until he does, its all guesswork…..<br>:biggrin: :biggrin:
