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

Wow, I won on Thiem. Somehow I didn't expect that. That means I can get a plus day in Kitz if Verdasco wins, which I didn't believe after Hanescu lost.

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

Oh, well. Always risky betting against young players. Even with the 15k loss, I am at only a -8k for the week. So, hopefully I can prevent a third consecutive negative week. My main bets for Washington will probably be Harrison for the upset and Simon. May add one on Benneteau

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

Big bets on Monaco and Isner yesterday got me back to positive for the week. Two big losses so far. 15k on Melzer and 5400 on Simon.

+2077 in Washington and -1950 in Kitzbuhel for a +127 overall.

Also placed a 20k bet on Nole for YE #1 @1.25

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

Very few bets this week for me only 4 until the moment but the good part is that I'm perfect and in a streak of 6

Kitzbuhel +628
Washington +838
Week +1466

Well done

For me, a good day in Kitzbühel yesterday, I got all four matches right. Not so good in Washington. I lost on Raonic. Third loss against Matosevic this week. Ouch! In total, I went +312 for the day.

Week so far:
Kitzbühel +344
Washington -90
Total +254

Today Kitzbuhel was pretty much a win-win(or lose-lose, depending on the way you look at it) situation for me. On one side were my vBets and other, my BetSec picks. Both my vBets turned out wrong, but I got all four* BetSec picks correct. Haase drops to 1-6. And have lost quite a lot of bets betting against him too. He is a smaller version(in terms of amounts) of Berdych for me. Also back to a negative for the week.


*Monaco, Monaco-1, Monaco-Montanes>20, Granollers-Haase>22

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

A lot of large bets on Isner this week has taken him to my second most bet on player in terms of amount. Only the second player to reach six figures in bet on. He also becomes my most successful player, after going 3-0 this week with +11.8K. Will be sticking with him against Tursnov too. Back to a week positive.

Washington: +5677
Kitzbuhel: -4950
Total: +727

I'll be stopping picking on BetSec now after placing nine bets on one match yesterday(Vinci-Ivanovic) and losing all 9.

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

Interesting final for me. Had won on every Isner match this week and lost on every Del Potro match(not counting Tomic, as we didn't have a market for that). Went for my usual underdog takes a set 3 bets and a bet on the doubles final. Went 1/4 but had a postitive day. Ruined my Isner streak though. He went from a profit of 17660 for the week to 13660. Overall week remained as it was throughout. Great week for Washington(basically Isner), terrible in Kitzbuhel

Washington: +9143
Kitzbuhel: -9950
Total: -807

I decided to continue having some fun there. Placed 12 different bets on Rybarikova-Petkovic and won all 12

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

I ended my week peacefully. I went +204 on Kitzbühel and +6 on Washington. Didn't dare bet the final day for fear of losing my plus.

In total I now have 21 tournaments with a plus and 19 with a minus. Still minus overall, though. -5812 to be precise.

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

Not a good day in Montreal for me. Went +224 yesterday winning on Seppi, Gulbis and Dodig, but losing on Weintraub. Went in more heavy today and has already lost relatively big (for me) on Llodra and Nieminen. The second one bugs me a bit. I sensed an upset but didn't go with the thought. At least I refrained from picking the Finn in Suicide, like most of the others did.

I have won on Stepanek, but am still -464 so far today and -240 for the tournament. Bets pending on Dancevic, Simon, Youzhny, Haas and Chardy.

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

Okay folks, back to basics. A disastrous post Wimbledon(-100K+) has brought me down to a career positive of 2. Guess I have to go back to making sensible bets now.

Surprisingly, despite the 20k loss on Isner I just had, he is still in a positive of 336 for me. Thought of not betting on him since it is outside US, but made the bet against my better judgement. Will probably go back to betting on him next week though. In US, given his record(75% win ratio), the odds on him are just too good to pass up.

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

In a wanton act of lucany I added a late bet on Anderson, which lost (of course) as he was playing Dolgopolov. No rescuing this day now.

Another man I really shouldn't bet on or against is Nieminen. He's hopeless in both directions.

So your list gradually increases. It will be 6 or 7 by the end of the season

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

A loss on Andujar took him to 0-7.

Got lucky with the 47 odd on Pospisil. It was a win-win market for me, but of course, I lost the 8K bet on Berdych so that his stats become even worse. Not complaining though, as I still made 15K in that market. Covers up 75% of my loss on Isner. Back to year and career positive. Still a -6K in Rogers cup.
