The Draw Inflation Challenge

OK it is always good to one’s money where one’s mouth is. And as people have been asking me lots of questions about the fantastic new Draw Inflation Tool (featured here) and whether it really works. I thought I would set myself a little challenge and see if we can raise a few extra quid for the London Marathon charity pot (that is featured here) at the same time too.

So whenever I can I will follow the DI tool and look to trade opportunities it flags ups. This will be for very small and looking for just 1 or 2 ticks movement to leverage a profit with the idea to build a slow and steady profit over the next month to add as a donation to my fund.

And also to show that you don’t need massive resources to generate a decent little extra (and tax free) income.

The premise will be I get an alert for an opportunity, I fire the trades in with a one tick offset once matched, if we are not matched before the % moves then we remove the trades and look for the next one.

Of course I cannot follow this 24/7 and I will miss trades so this will be just get on when I can around the other stuff I am doing and will be entirely separate from all the other trading / risk free activities I undertake. But even say an average of £5 a day for the next 30 days is an extra £150 so is not to be sniffed at.

OK here we go then….. (for now I will just list the daily amounts but will look to put up some more detail and videos as we progress)

Day One – 20/03/12 – 3 trades – +£5.20
Day Two – 21/03/12 – 4 trades – +£4.15

Everyone’s a winner thanks to bookmaker YOUWIN

They responded to my plead for bookmaking sponsors for my London Marathon 2012 fundraising effort with a lovely free €50 (£41ish) bet.

Once again we dispatched this risk free on some Thursday night Spanish football (come on I wasn’t going to risk a free charity bet was I)

And this converted to a very nice £38 added to the pot and all courtesy of YOUWIN. So a massive thanks to them (especially Elaine) for sorting this all out, it really will make a difference to SeeAbility who we are supporting for this years event.

It is not that often that people have a good word to say about the dear old Bookmaker / Betting Organisations but here at we would like to warmly applaud the Betting Exchange companyBetfair who have made a fantastic gesture to our fundraising effort.

After firing off an email to a number of our affiliate managers, Phil Hudson, head of the affiliate team at Betfair responded with the offer of a free £100 bet for me to use to boost the pot for my London Marathon 2012 fundraising effort.

A free £100 stake returned bet, wow, very generous.

This said bet was dispatched over last weeks Cheltenham festival, where I managed to use it to lay off a very nice 14% arb I found well come on I wasn’t going to risk a free charity bet was I !

So a very nice £114 added to the pot and all courtesy of Betfair. Gives one a warm glowing feeling inside!

Many, many thanks Betfair and this act of generosity will help make a real difference to our wonderful charity, SeeAbility whom we are supporting for this years event.

Full details on how you can get involved too are right here –

Anyway you too can enjoy the whole Betfair experience for yourself and If not, then you can bag a free £25 sign up bet too. Of course we have it all covered in Oddsmatcher so finding a match to lock in more risk free profits could not be easier.

As I hope you all know by now we are well on our way with the fundraising effort for this years big event, The 2012 London Marathon.

You don’t, well stop reading this and get your wallet out, here’s the link:

OK you’re back now, many thanks!

As you can see from that page, the fundraising got off to the best possible start thanks to the good and the great from the GeeksToy website (, and in particular from The Geek himself.

Thanks to his marvelous generosity following his Real Trader Challenge back in September 2011.

So welcome to “The Real Trader” charity challenge. In this challenge to a maximum of £2000, I will be offering £150 each up to charity for those consistent winners that provide either a video of their 3 month Betfair P&L, or their 3 month P&L plus their lifetime P&L via the premium portal. Any money raised will be split 50:50 between Darren Hall’s latest charity run, and the Children in Need fundraiser planned for November.

From this he donated a staggering £1000 to me, £750 of that went to help my son fund his trip to India later this year as part of a community / schools rebuilding project and the other £250, has launched my own London Marathon event for the fantastic SeeAbility charity that I am running for this year.

Brilliant stuff!
