Nothing left to vBet with. Will have to take a three week hiatus from vBetting. With my posting habit, it will take quite a while to build back, but my RG game should give me ~1500 credits. So see you guys either in RG SF/F or in Halle/Queens.
Very sad Talk about unlucky patch.

Re: *** ~~~ Betting shrine ~~~ ***

Well, it seems that I am back
Received quite a healthy donation.

In the last two weeks, I broke my cardinal rule several times and that ended up costing me. Costing me big. Going back to follow it now as it served me very well in the past few months. Never bet on odds lesser than 0.2. No matter how much of a "safe bet" you think it is. They are just not worth it.

Tempted to bet on Federer, but odds are lesser than 0.2. Put a token(10) amount on JJ. For consolation money as b_o_c would put it.

Re: *** ~~~ Betting shrine ~~~ ***

Glad to have you back, Pratik

I have not learned my lesson, and put 2800 on Federer It just felt like too good an opportunity to pass up. And my day desperately needs salvaging something. Even if this goes well I'll be solidly in minus for the day.

This is btw the 131th different amount I've ever put up. 63 of them has - so far - been only once.

Re: *** ~~~ Betting shrine ~~~ ***

Don't believe I almost missed this

The instant I decide to follow my rule again, I decide to break it. There is always an exception to every rule. 100% payout(or break-even) beats every other rule.

All-in(almost) on Federer-Jerzy match.
Federer: 7650@0.18
Jerzy: 1350@5.7

If Federer wins, I make a profit of 27, if Jerzy wins I make a profit of 45. Not much, but definitely better than the -10/+57 I had with my earlier situation(10 on Jerzy). And it will break my current losing streak. Although it may start a new one but that one will only have a length of one.

Actually, not sure why I am even making this post. If anything, it will make you vBookies more careful next time which means no more win-win markets. So you folks can assume that you didn't read this.

You mean you can't do them? I'll take them, no problem, there's not that many on a Saturday. Odds for Nadal - Berdych are already up.

Berdych@5 on Bet365. That's terribly low. He is on a 12 match losing streak against Nadal. Lightning doesn't strike twice in two days at the same place.

You look unlikely to get 0.20 on Nadal though, probably something just below....

Re: *** ~~~ Betting shrine ~~~ ***

So am I now the only one here who is not a vBookie?

Nothing exciting today. Odds too low on Federer and Nadal. Placed small bets on each of the 4 odds off players/teams today.

Mirnyi/Tecau: 60@2.45
Paire: 50@7.00
Berdych: 60@5.25
Gonzalez/Lipsky: 300@1.16 (Meant to put 150, but was betrayed by my latop and internet connection. Ended up putting two bets)

One of the first three would cover the other two.

Re: *** ~~~ Betting shrine ~~~ ***

Set betting odds are great. Equal amounts on Fed 2-0 and Fed 2-1 will give effective odds of Fed@4.00 which is higher than the 3.6 in the match market. My bet: 7k split by 3 on Fed wining one set(the one of Rafa was a private bet, by mistake).

Come on Fed, win a set

No worries. That was all ill-obtained money any way(late bets).
