The last couple of months have been tough going indeed. October was a poor month and there have been times when it’s felt that November was going the same way. I can’t say that the consistently wet weather we’ve seen these past few weeks are affecting things too much when the poorest performing services have included all three footie tipsters in the portfolio. I guess there are times when you have to concede that there’s no rhyme nor reason to what happens and that these ups and downs we experience are simply a natural part of betting.
I’ve seen plenty of these hard times before, of course. Experience teaches you that if you can remain focused, calm and accepting of what the punting Gods are throwing at you, you come out the other side and successfully forge into profit again. These are the times of course when your bank management and set up is stress tested, as is your mentality.
All of this sounds like November has been a disaster. It hasn’t been – it’s ended in a profit, albeit a very small one. But there are times when not losing money is a big win, and this feels like one of those times.
Hats off to Bet Alchemist this month, which has performed quite superbly. Great to see the return of Racing Service 2 who has picked up this season as if never having been away, and an impressive first month for Precision Value.
That the month ended only just in the black after the above mentioned services all performed admirably, tells you that there was some pretty shocking performances elsewhere…
