Re: Do you Actually Win Anything

For the last 18 months I've made a good living betting on tennis

So it can be done

Re: Do you Actually Win Anything

yeah discipline is the thing. i had never done a bet in my life but went from 500ish pounds to 17k in less than 6 months..then i bet massive on stupid shit i didnt even watch and ended up losing it all...5k on a womans darts final...5k on murphy tb ding..both lost and a few others when nothing came in. this was a few years ago and it is depressing to know how much i could of had if i wasnt an idiot...i know when to quit and have quit apart from the odd small bet at the wkend but it is gutting to know what i once had and not being able to get over it

Hi Delboy - If you went from .5k to £17k in six months, then should have have continued
to follow the methods that got you that incredible amount. I know it's boring but if you
don't have financial discipline, then it's inevitable that you will lose money in the long run.

Think about it, if you could have compounded that £17k & done the same things at the beginning,
then would be getting into the serious amounts of money - approximately £650k.

Unfortunately money does things to people that you can't describe, but without a strict system
in place, then the market will rear it's ugly head & empty your wallet.

true, just try to fix a match and then play with the spoils.
No, gambling is an addiction and does not pay, if it was so easy to maintain your discipline punters would make money and not the bookies.

You can be the best tipster in the world, have 10 fantastic calls in a row, just one bad call will ruin everything.

Re: Do you Actually Win Anything

I understand you need diciplince- offcourse you do in many areas of life- but were all adults and have the intelligence to know what you can and cannot afford to bet

If i couldnt afford to do it i wouldnt- if i felt my gambling was costing me to much or i was going without things in life i would stop, its all good fun

That's if you overstake.

If you are knowledgeable about tennis, players, odds, do research, and have a natural affinity for betting then putting it in a framework of sensible staking means you can profit long-term.

10k bank (for example)

bets between 1-6% of bank.

If you are good, and don't start chasing then you can win long term.

It is not in doubt.

Re: Do you Actually Win Anything

Yes i dont see how one bad call can ruin everything, a losing streak then sure, but if you have dicipline then you can afford to lose bets, nobody can win 90-100 percent of the time on each bet

Re: Do you Actually Win Anything

I've won a bit but my sportsbetting is still in it's infancy. I have now cracked tennis betting having made a small profit over the past year.

If you have a system which finds value in the bets and you can manage money then you have given yourself a chance.

If you just look at a tiny bit of form like my team won last week so they should win again or I'll have a fiver on the favourite then you are doomed to failure.

I mean the bookies have been doing this for years it's gotta be tough to beat them right?

If I didn't win I would quit straight away no way I would go to work and hand my hard won cash to a bookie!
