Aug 29th – Sep 11 -$14,400.85
This is a 2 week update as I spent the last week in Vegas. It seems whenever I travel the betting goes really poorly. A terrible fortnight and I’m fighting to keep above the 100k profit mark now. After 72 days into my 3rd year I am down over $15,000.
Last year the US Open saved my bank, this year it was pathetic and I was lucky I had some massive nights out and missed a lot of bets otherwise the damage would have been even worse. The XX Draws also had a horrendous week and lost the same amount as Tennis. Skeeve and FB Analyst also contributed to a pathetic 2 weeks.
A note on Skeeve, being in OZ, there are certain matches where the odds come in too much before I get a chance to bet them, so my results will not be a true reflection of the service. If you want a true reflection, Skeeve records his odds 10 minutes after his selections come out which is a very fair way to do it. Skeeves results for the season can be found here.
So a terrible fortnight and I am really questioning whether I should bother betting when I travel, as it is a real hassle and never seems to do well. I don’t have any trips planned until the new year so this shouldn’t be an issue for some time.
One last note, more and more Australian bookies are starting to limit or close my accounts. Since being bought by the big UK brands it has gotten much worse, the old Australian adage of a fair go is long gone and they are quick to fuck off anyone who might make a profit from them.
