Also, do you normally bet well over 1/4 of your bank on a single bet? Flirting with danger if you ask me.
Anyway, you're ahead and that's all that matters - but when you put yourself on a pedastal, calling everyone else amateurs, and then display traits of an amateur punter (ie. huge stakes on single events and chasing losses) you leave yourself open for criticism
Good luck with your next picks
The unit system with experienced gamblers typically denotes 1 unit as equallying 1% of their kitty.
However on this forum where people bet 150% of the money they have, units obviously mean something else. If Adee is starting with a 500 unit bank, then just divide the factor of units in each bet by 5 to obtain the 'real' stake.
Not that anyone any successful gambler would wager 1/5 his money on such a risky bet.
