anything you can do, i can do better!

I’ve stayed very quiet over the past couple of days. One reason for that is because  i was away in Dublin yesterday so i didn’t place any bets. Another reason is that i was preparing some big bets today. And it was a mixed day, but i ended up in profit, which is becoming an all too familiar story now ;-)

Twice today i was left with a balance of less than €2, so i was going in for the kill like i promised. If i’m honest, i expected to crush Enda today, so i’m shocked that Enda called it right in the Chelsea match and won big. Fair play to him – a very clever lay with low risk ;-)

He’ll know though like myself, that you never write Man Utd off… whether there’s 3 minutes left or 3 seconds left… unlike enda though, i didn’t try to pull out or hedge my bet completely. I had backed a draw and stuck €3 on it @ odds of 3.20… but Chelsea were 2-1 going in to injury time. I did place a few small bets as the match was coming to and end to try and limit my losses, but i kept the faith overall and was prepared to lose money…. and it paid off big time… the match finished 2-2. So massive €8.80 profit there.

HOWEVER, i lost €4 on an ipswich town match earlier in the day. I also lost small bets during the community shield match, plus i gambled and lost on the penalty shoot out (i lost €2 by backing a utd win – heart ruling head to be honest there!)

So after the match had finished, i had a balance of €30.03 thinking that was fantastic (not knowing Enda had a balance of €30.77).

The real victory though, for me, came in the golf, i was glued to the finish and ended up banking on tiger – meaning all my funds were resting on himself or Harrington winning (if harrington had won i’d have gone back to about €28). At this stage i still didn’t know Enda had a balance over €30 but i was determined to crush him today and get as far as possible away from him.

Tiger won and i’m now sitting on a whopping balance of €37.39…

I’m sure Enda won’t be expecting it… he’ll be quietly confident he’s taken a lead with his big win earlier today. Although he’s risked less and could sleep easier than i could, my strategy has paid off once again and i reclaim my throne as no.1 ;-)

I’m now €6.62 ahead of Enda, so despite his big win, nothing has changed really – he’ll be incredibly frustrated that he’s gone past the €30 mark yet still remains a good bit adrift. But, we’ve both gone past the €30 mark in just over a week which is an incredible achievement when you think about it. At this rate, we should both be capable of hitting the €50 mark every month :mrgreen:
