Another reason why I have so many different amounts bet: Placed 2800 on Dog and 1000 on Melzer. Then wanted to place a large bet on Querrey. Placed 4321 which is (my profit of WS so far - amount already bet today). So that even if I lose all three, my week will not go negative. I ended up picking the 3 straight set winners and abstained from the 3 setter. Not bad.
Edit: Currently on a 6 match win streak. Also won 10 of last 11.
I'm extremely pleased with my own results yesterday. I only bet on two matches but won on both. More significant were the men I won on. Lu is one of my best players bet on and one of my worst bet against. Dolgopolov is just hopeless either way. Still I made a large bet (by my standards) of 518 on the Dog and won 296. My other win was a second straight odds-off win on my former nemesis Melzer, who is rapidly rehabilitating himself in my stats. A 95 bet gave a 171 win. In total +467 yesterday and +174 for the tournament.
Careful betting today. Put 75 on Melzer. Want to ensure a positive total for W-S.
I also put 10 on Jaziri against Kyrgios. I've been trying to add Tunisia to my bet stats for a long time, but the MDs have escaped Jaziri ever since Dubai, where he drew Fed. I figured I had to take this chance to add him, as this could be the last chance this year, even if it looks a bit strange with just one qualy match open for betting.
In two minds for today. Melzer does seem like good value at 2, especially since Sam is not at his best. But I've always been reluctant betting against Sam and possibly my judgement is clouded being a Melzer fan. Sam leads the h2h 2-0, both matches last year. For the other match, it's The Dog. Unreliable as always. Will put a small one on Tunisia Jaziri too. All in all, win streak most likely going to be broken today.
As expected, my win streak is broken. Placed a usual same amount on two underdogs. Jaziri and Dolgo both wasted way too many chances, but Melzer came through.
Tunisia was my 50th country. 51st coming up soon(Cuevas).
Other than my very first tournament(Wimbledon 2012), I haven't made a profit on a single tournament outright market. Not so sure about placing a bet in this one. Thinking about equal amounts on Nadal and Federer.
I regret not betting a little more on Melzer. He's almost career positive now. I didn't check beforehand, if I had, I would have bet just enough to take him to career positive in case of a win. Still, three straight odds-off wins on him is not bad for a former nemesis.
Tunisia was my 48th nation. I already have Cuevas....
Bo3 final. Do I really need to mention which bet(s) I placed? My standard underdog takes a set. 2000 x 3. After Melzer won the first set, I thought I had a minimum profit of 2080 ensured. Melzer 2-0 or Melzer 2-1 would have made WS my best one(or one and a half) week tournament ever. Ends in retirement.
Edit: I also had 6 bets on this match on BetSec. Was looking like I would have won at least 5 of those. Now all abandoned. Worst part is that they count abandoned bets in the denominator while calculating yield. This is going to reduce my yield by 0.2%
I had another small success, placing 28 on Melzer and winning 48. This made him the first-ever player in my stats to win four straight odds-off matches, and also took him to a career positive of...four! My best "rehabilitation" yet, apart from Federer.
Very poor start to US Open for me. Went -1655 on the completed part of day 1, after big losses on Nishikori and Gulbis. Also lost on Haase. With no big wins the total was always going to be a poor one. Back into career negative, after a week and a half in plus. That was at least the longest "positive stretch" I've had since March.
Why I bet on Nishikori I do not know. Probably just a hope of seeing his figures improve a bit. Fat chance....he's now singlehandedly destroying my figures for the Asian continent.
My US Open so far is also poor. My 1st day improved with the delayed matches, but my day 2 was bad, so in total -1610 after two days, eevn after managing to find a couple of surprising winners (Gonzales the best one, unfortunately the stake was low).
