Like that one mate but my confidence is shattered after both Davydenko and Nieminen went down. Any other day I'd play this one, but I might leave this week alone after going from 7-0 to 8-4 in two days.

What was Ukraine's odds last night? I can't imagine it would have been more than $1.15?

Donkey should never be backed at those odds against anyone, he is a known tanker espcially when we are talking about some meaningless tournament in the middle of the desert

champ, I was trying to point out why it's not a good idea to take the short odds consistantly in the long term.

For example: if you back players at 1.20, you need 5 winners for every loss you have (assuming even staking), and even then you are only even. So at 1.20 you need 6 winners for every loss - not as easy as it sounds.

sounds nice in principle, but gambling is a tricky trade - if it weren't, it wouldn't be so profitable to a few, and detrimental to most.

I got $1.21 at Pinnacle which I thought was massive overs - as you said BG shouldn't have been over $1.15 considering Volandri hadn't won a match on hardcourt after 9 attempts (in '05) coming into the tournament.

Jim, I've taken three players at around $1.20 and under - which I saw as overs - but in hindsight, it is the start of the season and one was bound to lose sooner or later. My average odds for the season so far are $1.57 so it's not like I'm consistantly taking very short odds but anyway I've learnt a valuable lesson this week and have still come out with 2 units profit.
