I had a €2 bet on the Meath v Limerick 4th round qualifier and it’s not good news. I didn’t think there would be much between the teams and I thought that Limerick provided a bit of value at almost 2/1. I was wrong! I thought that if Limerick kept it tight until around half time then their odds would drop to just above even money. So I placed a lay of limerick for €2.50 at 2.1 to try and green up on this market. This would have left me with 50 cents profit for both the draw and Meath and just over a euro if Limerick won it. Unfortunately the lowest that Limerick traded during the match was 2.48 so I ended up loosing my initial 2 euro stake! I was surprised that it wasn’t picked up as Limerick should have levelled the game right on the stroke off full time but they carried the ball too far. Here’s my bet below:
After Sean’s win earlier today, I thought my best bet to catch him was at the poker table. I entered a nine man table game at 10c + 1c rake in the hope that I could turn a profit but it wasn’t to be and I went out in 6th place with Ace/Nine suited. If I placed first in this sit and go tournament I would have won 45 cents so I was right back up there with Sean. I videod some hands in the game and I’ve emailed to see if it’s ok to post videos without breaking their terms of service. If I’m not, i’ll add the video to this post later. only seems to have taken 8 cents instead of 11 cents for this game so my new balance is 17.92:
That leaves me €2.08 in the red by day one and I’m trailing Sean by €2.50 already. I still think I’ll have another bet of the Gaa matches tomorrow but I may let the game start before betting this time. I’m behind but I’m not finished by a long shot. Tomorrow is a new day!
