This could be either a very quick challenge or a very fruitful one :p

A few rules I'll abide by:

- I will be very selective in my staking to begin with and try and build it from there given I'm starting from a small bank.
- I will be using a variety of books to ensure I get the best price.
- I will not post anything that is not at least 1 hour till "gametime."
- No "in play" bets will be posted
- Only use fixed books to obtain my prices and subsequent placement of bets
- Any winnings yielded will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. On a side note, please support them :worship:


I will also bet on anything and everything.

Kenny doesn't come through :mad:

That's marks a premature end to this attempt. Might have another go later this year when I have a bit more time.
