Well, time is ticking on and yet the ROI figures for The Poacher continue to stay solid at the 30% mark, which is quite remarkable. The service has pushed on again this week to an all time high for the year and as the weeks pass, I find I’m boring myself saying that the long term ROI is around a tenth of what it is presently and that there’s going to be a crash soon. So you know what? I’m going to stop stressing about the inevitable reversion to the mean or “correction”, and concentrate instead on just enjoying the moment.
It is a fault of mine. Over the years I feel I’ve managed to control my emotions well when it comes to dealing with losing runs. That was tough, but I got there. I do however, find myself struggling at times to just relax and take it easy when things are going well. Is it through years of trying to control the negative side of betting psychology that I now find myself reticent to enjoy the positive? Anybody else find they’ve trained themselves so much not to get down by losing spells that you struggle a little mentally when the profit’s coming in as anyone would or could hope for? Or is it just me?
The entire portfolio is also at an all time high for 2021, largely due to the golf. But the racing side, despite struggling, has clawed back the majority of the losses accrued through January, the golf is through the roof, and the sports is ticking along very nicely indeed.
Have I just tempted fate? Have I just more or less begged the betting Gods to punish me? Possibly. But perhaps I simply shouldn’t care…
