July 25th – July 31st -$6,248.33
Back from my holiday and this weeks loss would have been much less if I had stayed home. I missed some tennis bets because I was on a plane, which cost $3,000 in profit and by having to take Betfair prices for my horse racing bets, I cost myself at least another $3,000. A real shame, and there is another 11 day holiday to Vegas at the end of August, so will really need to work out what I am going to do. If I want to enjoy myself I just need to accept that whenever I travel, it is going to make it hard to get the bets on at the time they need to be placed. The whole reason I am hoping to make a living from this is so I can travel the world to my hearts content, so these losses are just something I need to accept. Reading that back, I doubt I’ll get any sympathy at all, it sounds like I’m complaining because I get to go on holidays.
AFL has now had 3 terrible weeks, just have to keep placing those bets and hope for a turnaround, still well up for the year, but a shame this losing run started when I increased my bank by 50%.
Tennis has also had a terrible start to the Olympics tournament. A few big bets on favs losing.
Horse Racing did well and total profit is not far off $40,000. I have upped my stakes from 200 to 250 per unit.
