Re: My score in tie breaks is absolutely shocking

Nieminen-Fish 6-7 against
Kern-Vagnozzi 7-6 in my favor (Kern was down 6-3 )
Reister-Puetz 6-7 against
rufin-robredo 6-7 against

overall 5-16

the only one in my favour proved to be useless as Kern went on to lose the match quite easily. I'm quite speechless....

Re: My score in tie breaks is absolutely shocking

I've no words... Querrey-Nieminen 6-7 against. 1 mini break lead. the second set tie break of this match wasn't in my favor as I took querrey live in the third to put him in an accumulator.

overall 5-17, that's 22%

edit: I wrote this while querrey was 6-3* down in the final tb and incredibly he came back and won it 12-10

updated score is now 6-16, 27%

Ugly. 50/50s? Or you on the underdog?

If they were 50/50s, the chance of that happening by just ye olde bad luck is about 0.8%.

Edit: saw your edit, 6-16 is 2.6%, unfortunately that happens fairly regularly if you bet enough.

when I bet following my 'normal' routine I'm only on underdogs but these weeks I'm going for some accas and some dogs so you can understand how a 26% looks crazy to me as there are many dogs in this thread's tie-breaks.
the sample is quite small but I really want to see how this will go approaching the 100 tb mark and further.
have you ever kept record of your tie-breaks?

I'm considering doing a similar thing for the 1,01 gone busted and the ones that turned out in my favor

speaking of which... today I had Sugita to close an acca and he had double match point when already up a break, wasn't live on bf but it's safe to say this would have been another 1.01 busted.


Nielsen F./Butorac E. -Verdasco F./Marrero S. D. 7-6 my favor
Robredo-Monfils 6-7 against (this was obviously the one I needed more of the two)

7-18, 28%

Re: My score in tie breaks is absolutely shocking

three against

Dolgo-Monfils 6-7 (as it was the fist set you never can't tell but I would have won big money with Dolgo)
Evans-Maceiras 6-7 (won it anyway)
Arnaboldi-Dutra 6-7 (crucial, I would have won a lot)

11-22, 33%

Law of averages saving your ass.

Best truism of gambling: in the short term, it's all about luck. Midterm, still mostly luck. Only really longterm do you see your actual results.

o'brien-souto (yea I know... ) 6-7 against. this would have won me a lot as I had O'Brien to to win the set @7 and even had a SP on opponent's serve.... not a chance that I come up with a win in a big one

edit:it seems that crying over hopeless TBs helps to turn around the result
I've got a big one finally. o'brien won being 4-1* down just like querry two days ago, I thought it was over. I think I was 1 won out of the last 6 on underdogs. Being on underdogs on my normal days probably affects the % more than what I though it would.


12-22, 35.3%
