A LOSING day yesterday….. but now I’m left with trying to find the best way to record these….. I think that it’s best if I stick to the two formats that I started with and forget trying to record the winning fav bets….. so the records will continue to show the results as posted, that is the Lays and the Trades…. if anyone is betting the favs to win or any other method using these selections, they had better keep their own scores…..
So yesterday was Day 2 and these are the scores on the doors including those dismal results…..
Straight LAYS (as posted)…. profit from Day 1 was 4.75pts, there was a loss of 5.95pts yesterday, that leaves us a debit of (- 1.10pts)
Trading ONLY (no baseball)…. yesterday I made 2.25pts profit trading on the Marseille match and the Paris S G match….. but I had to bale out at my exit point on the Palmerias game because there was no goals….. I tried to get out for scratch (no loss) but I wasn’t clever enough, so I LOST 1pt on this game…. I normally exit quicker than that, but this time I was watching telly…. so that reduced my profit on the day to only 1.25pts….. not concerned though because my running balance on trading is at a profit of 5.10pts after Day 2…..

Baseball for tonight…..
N Y Yankees @ Boston R/S…. LAY Boston @ 1.67…. LOST….
Philadelphia @ San Francisco…. LAY San Francisco @ 1.79…. LOST….

OUCH!!!!…. what a disaster, very painful yesterday….
Straight Lays for Day 3….. there was (-1.10pts) b/f from yesterday, that needs to be added to our total loss yesterday of (-8.15pts) which includes both baseball bets…. and our total losses after Day 3 is (-9.25)….. that hurts a tad…..
Trading for Day 3 is a different kettle of fish and shows why I’m so into trading…. I made a profit of 1.75pts from all 3 matches…. I really love trading guys, by LTD you only require one goal to be scored and you should be in a position to trade out with a profit….. anyway, I digress…. the profit from Trading after Day 3 is +6.85pts…..

There will be NO SELECTIONS today because of family commitments….
MrEAugust 10, 2011 at 10:52 #367688
Hi guys….. still around, but no time to even look at footy and baseball…. family commitments still pending….
The missus is running around like a headless chicken and she keeps shouting Matron, Matron, but somehow I don’t think it OUR Matron….. it’s summat to do with babies and being great grand parents again…. I dunno, can’t these girls learn to keep their ankles together, I’m too young to be a GREAT grandad…..

Thanks Billy…… I might not be around for awhile guys, you all know that I’ve been suffering with gout in my hand, rheumatism, and sciatica…… I’ve been suffering quite a lot in recent weeks and the doc required that I should take further blood tests, which I did…… it showed no rheumatism whatsoever and surprisingly there was no uric acid either, and if your suffering from gout then uric acid must be present…. it aint…..
So after the doc and visiting the physio, it is their opinion that I am suffering from RSI in my hand and that the bad sciatica is sitting for too long in an unsuitable chair…. well, considering that I spend over 10 hours a day EVERY day sitting in front of this machine studying the horse, football, baseball and roulette, they think that it’s this that’s causing the damage….. thinking about it, they could be right….. in their words, it’s hard enough spending 10 hours in front of these things when your 40, it’s bloody damaging if your still doing it at knocking 70, so they have asked me to slow down a bit, just to give it a try….. so I’ve agreed a maximum of 2 hours a day split into 2 sessions…. that’ll give me time for a few postings and answering emails, that doesn’t give me adequate time to study, but I told ’em that I’d give it a spin for 30 days…… so I will keep nipping in to take the wee, but I won’t be putting anything up because I’ll not have time to study, pity really, the trading was going well…..
So I’m having a holiday for a month guys, sorry about that…..

See, you in a month MrE.
Get yourself a decent high-back office chair and pay for it with some of your winnings!
Seriously, the better the chair the better you will feel.
Enjoy your time with the family.

and remember you only get one life – we are all simply "passing through" but am sure like me you want to hang around as long as possible.
So do as you are told but the question remains "can you teach an old dog new tricks?"
See you soon.

Oh, I aint going anywhere guys, just stopping studying for a bit…..
Matron… a proper office chair??….. I’m sitting in the bedroom with a stool to sit on and the monitor sat on the window sill, there aint no room for a poxy office chair, nice thought though….
Billy ‘Un….. it is difficult to teach old dogs, but we really don’t need any teaching do we….. it comes to something when the highlight of my day is getting wazzed on Grouse or a glass or two of red wine and trying to think of something to say to insult everyone on the forum….. it never comes over like that when I read it again in the mornings, but at the time of writing, I’m usually wetting myself….. good job Matrons got a bulk buy offer on Tena Pads…..

Hello girls, I’ve missed you….. doc says to give it a rest for 30 days, well, it’s smack on the button, so here I am again, Billy Uns nemesis…… I received the odd whisper about a couple of you getting lonely and returning to Matron’s ample bosom, just be careful guys, he must be taking summat special to get a bosom that size…..
As for yours truly, I think the professionals may have been correct in their observations, this 30 day abstinence has appeared to work the oracle….. they told me at the outset that I wasn’t suffering from rheumatism, it was confirmed that I was actually suffering from another type of
called a Spoonerism and in the course of the conversation they decided that I had a bout of Cankers Wolic…… I don’t think it’s contagious, but Matron would probably know more about that medical affliction than I would…..

Nice to see you back and feeling better.
Nothing like 30 days solitary confinement on the "side ward" to sharpen you up!
I think Bill was getting lonely without you on the main ward.

Many thanks Matron, I appreciate the welcome and it’s good to be back…. I’ve been reading some of the stuff and having a bit of a chuckle at the dingo’s expense…. I did hear that he was also feeling a tad unwell after an afternoon in your office, I asked him if everything was OK but he said that he was suffering with pains somewhere in his nether regions. I asked him what was wrong, "Rectum", said I, No says Bill, he hasn’t wrecked ’em, but Matron certainly made ’em bounce about a bit……
MrESeptember 13, 2011 at 15:44 #370857
Somewhere in my previous squitter I said that I made most of my profits from sources other than the horses and it was always thus, but recent afflictions have severely restricted my time spent at the P/C, so I had no other option but to drop all the other avenues, so it’s fare thee well to Roulette, trading, Xgames, and all the other items that required my time at this machine….. I needed to take a step back and look at what I could do to get myself a bit of pocket money, the obvious answer was to go back to the horses whereby I could just bet ‘n go….. so I delved into all my previous (and present) horse racing systems with the intention of finding the rainbows end….. of all my old stuff and odd bits and pieces, I found nothing better than the method that I was using prior to my enforced holiday, but there was a little something from way back that was begging to be inserted (sorry Matron) into my recent method and it looks to be a modest improvement…..
I have noticed that old Bully has been nipping back into the archives to dredge up some of the old systems….. wow!!!, there were some good ones way back of which one was called the "Majestic"….. I think Bully has already brought that one back up….. but, as with all systems. nothing lasts forever….. racing is forever changing and so must systems, a lot of old systems work, they just want bringing into the 21st century…..
There is no magic wand, there is no infallible system….. but there is an awful lot going for "Systematic Betting" which is not the same thing….. systems focus the mind, they give out much needed discipline, but when the flag falls, it is the individual punter that must decide whether or not that selection is actually worthy of a bet…… just because a selection has been made doesn’t mean that it should be a bet regardless of other consequences…..
I am going to put several of my profitable methods up on the forum with an explanation on how I use this information, you guys can choose to follow or ignore….. there are lots of guys on this forum that are far better at picking winners than I am and I’m not going into battle, I don’t enter into competitions…. these guys are courageous enough to put their tips up for everyone to see and that’s great, but that’s what they are, TIPS, what we should be doing, and is what Bully is trying to do, is to find systems whereby we are not just reliant on a person tipping…. a system would mean that we are all on the same selection and then it’s down to the individual whether he or she actually places any bets…..
I’ll start a new thread with a couple of good methods that have worked well for a long time, you guys can modify and adapt them to suit yourselves…… I’ll need another month off after all this typing…..
