    Thought this might be a good idea for a thread. Might save the "i put 100 on South Africa to beat France 2-1" posts.

    It may not last long, i don't know whether people would agree with a dedicated thread but we'll see i suppose.

    I'l start it off with these two.

    Last night on Argentina and SK

    Just logged into Betfair there to back USA to qualify versus Ghana, expected it to be around evens as it should have been pretty much 50/50, saw Ghana were 6/4!! I couldn't afford not to back them at that price! Ghana go 2-1 up a minute later :)

    In all fairness, you're some yoke to be giving out about lying about bets, considering you magically changed a e100 bet to a 10er once it lost.

    Oh and:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    if id known he was that price i would have had a bit of it! that was massive for a man with his world cup goalscoring record, good spot headshot

    It's probably going against the spirit of this thread to show a losing bet but this might act as a salutary tale. Very occasionally I look at the upcoming weekends action and try to do a "measured" (I hope) accumalator of only 3 or 4 matches.

    I sat down in front of the paper on Saturday morning. I felt England were not suddenly going to recover form and were ripe for the taking. Meath's forwards had seriously impressed me and the Dubs were mediocre v Wexford.

    I thought Sligo would beat Galway after seeing their respective opening matches. However instead of being cautious and covering the draw (which referees (sub)consciously seem to play for in the GAA world eg Sligo +1 or +2 I was influenced by the astronomical outcomes coming up on the betslip and also the symmetry of the bet ie all matches with minus handicaps.

    I was in one of those devil-may-care moods and stuck a freebet which I got back from Isner - Mahut from PP.

    60 bucks brought in....................................€7020

    Turned over to England match as Sligo annihalating Galway. Germany doing the business. Switched back - Sligo 5 points up a minute to go. The beers were flowing and the company good. Germany do the business. Meath start destroying Dublin. Getting increasingly excited. Had I finally beaten the bookies? And then to check score of the bet I had been least worried about. No....oh no. Galway had scored 5 points in injury time.

    In future I will keep the individual accumulator bets as cautious as possible as the returns are so good even when the odds are evens. Of course will I ever spot three value oppurtunities simultaneously like that again?:rolleyes:

    That's awful luck, Geezer.
    I think we've all been there before.
    Thanks for the salutory reminder that you can be spot on in most of your analysis and get the difficult picks nailed on, yet still end up giving the bookies money if you go down the accie route.

    I don't actually watch football, probably seen one full match in this world cup. Have another E600 profit on paddypower but I've done all my scorecast betting on betfair cause I have an account and it has better odds. :D

    lol at the 4 euro one, though it would never come in hence the small stake


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,584 ✭✭✭digme


    I had over 1.5 goals but since 3 penos and no goals later
    I said why not take a real gamble and bet on spain to win in 90 mins,
    so at minute 73 I went ahead and put a 100 euros on at 2.40
    Very happy.

    Awful unlucky Geezer fella, I would've absolutely collapsed if that was me.

    Headshot, nice bets but more importantly, what's Windows 7 like? :):D
