Hey guys, dont really post much, but will look to get back into betting a bit more seriously now - so expect to see me around a bit more!
Im 19 year old student (so not massive disposal funds available for gambling), and have been an occassional punter for about 4 or so years. Have always used some form of logic and research when making bets, but have after realising that ive actually made a decent amount from this, and my increasing love of gambling (sounds like im an addict lol) ive decided to put more focus into it. So thought i'd ask you guys for some advice/feedback!
Ive got my bankroll (altho i have never kept accurate measurement) up to about $600 now. I want to start being more discliplined with my betting, as too often in the past ive won alot, increased stakes only to blow my winnings. Ive just taken a two week break so that i didnt blow my winnings from first few days of Wimbledon. Am now ready to get back into it. From reading through the forum, ive gathered i should never bet more than 5% of my bankroll yes? So $30 should be my maximum limit that i am betting at this stage?
Also, how do you guys keep records of betting history? Is there any sites that you use, or simply write down every bet you make into a book. I really want to get a system where i know how much im winning of certain sports, whats working for me, whats not etc.
What bookmakers do you use? My main sports are Tennis/English soccer and AFL. Most of the time i simply pop into local TAB, but also have an account @ Centrebet. Im thinking of putting entire 'bankroll' into Betfair? I thought it would be easier to keep track of money in one location, and betfair appears to be good. Or would you reccommend multi bookies?
Sorry for such a long post, any advice would be appreciated! Thank you
