It’s very easy to be philosophical when you miss bets that go on to lose. It’s not so easy when you miss bets that go on to win. It is the latter category that has been the source of some frustration for me this week.
The Poacher is clearly a service in tip top form, and I’m doing very well with it. But, for reasons of being out and about and therefore missing three bets that were all winners, I’m not doing as well as I could. I tell myself that this will even itself out over time when the bets I’m unable to place end up as losers and this is true, no doubt. Does that help ease the frustration? Not really.
What am I going to do to ensure I don’t miss bets moving forward? I think the only thing I can do is either get the kids to walk the dog or walk the dog somewhere where I can at least get 4G on the mobile. Either that or I’m not so strict on the odds I take on each bet. To this point. I’ve simply put in a request for the advised price if I find when I get to the laptop to strike the bet, I’ve missed the price. A couple of these requests have been matched prior to kick off, and three haven’t, ie. the three missed bets. I would anticipate as I get used to the service and the odds movement patterns, etc., missing bets will happen with less frequency. All part of the learning process when following a service for the first time.
Elsewhere and Sports Service 1 has had its first bet. I’ve decided I’m going level stakes with this one, hence the different point bank size in the figures below.
