Although I'm most of the times on underdogs, how on earth do I have tbs on my favour like 20% of the times :eek:

last three were:
Haas-Potro 6-7 against (only needed the 1st set here)
Rosol-Seppi 6-7 against
Lopez-Gulbis 6-7 against

you won't beat my record to lose 19 consecutive tiebreaks in a row

i guess it was within 4-5 days...

i can remember that i even lost a tiebreak from 6-2 there...

but this is betting. take a break, don't look at odds and other stuff.

i am much more relaxed now because if you know what you are able to do a bad streak isn't so bad because you realize you have to be focused and concentrated to have success.

yea I'm not too pissed cause I was using very low stakes (although the Haas tb would have won me 1 grand, these are matches I wouldn't normally bet on). 19 in row must be nerve-wracking, I had a 5-1* lead in Kerber-Kanepi this year and I a lost it, had to smash my mobile phone after it.

I was backing Isner last night, can't believe he lost both tie-breaks he played, after being 4-2 up in both of them.

Halep :facepalm: from 5-2 to 5-7

EDIT: Luckily, she won anyway.

Also, Davis just won her tie-break after losing a 5-2 lead in the set and then also failing to serve for the match at *6-5 too. So it could have been a lot worse regarding tie-breaks today.

I've got Robredo, and he was just went 6-1 up against Bellucci and lost it 6-8, 7 straight points :worship: Made even worse that when he was 6-1 up he was on a 12-point winning streak on his own serve.

Beat that.

I'd have given up on humanity if Robredo managed to throw away back to back tie-breaks after 6-1 and 6-3 leads haha. Even though I have money on Robredo to win this match, part of me wants a deciding tie-break.

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 :eek::eek::eek::eek:

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 :lol:

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.

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... :lol: ) 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 :sad:

edit:it seems that crying over hopeless TBs helps to turn around the result :lol:
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.

good thread. for me the most annoying thing in bets is when my guy losing a tie breaker, nothing pisses me more, don't count but i am comfortably under 50% (very rarely i need underdogs and that's the most tragic part)

this week is quality one, for now i am 0-6 :facepalm:

motorhead
10-29-2013, 09:21 PM
Yea it's annoying to start off with those negative streaks, in previous page u can see I had a 0-5 two weeks ago and in terms of bets at one particular point I had won 1 bet out of 17, just right after Bemelmans choked that match against Mahut literally nothing came my way, I was fortunately on low stakes.

Anyway the lucks seem to continue

janowicz-giraldo 7-6
nishikori-tsonga 7-6

34-34

that means that I've reached the 50% mark, and I thought it was impossible :eek:

I think (at least for me) having a lot of wasted BPs is even more frustrating than losing tie breaks.
