Eye of the Tiger Newbie Blog – 18th June

Posted on June 19, 2009 by  

Well my first set back, if you can call it that. Having decided that there was no way Egypt could beat the World Champions Italy, I placed my free £25 bet from Stan James on them guess what…1-0 to the Pyramid Boys.

Bet Details:

Back Egypt at Stan James at odds of 5.50 with the free £25 bet
Lay Egypt at Betfair at odds of 6.00 with £18.91 for a liability of £94.54

This gave me a very nice £17.56 risk free positive and we have smashed the £50 profit barrier!!

Naturally this result has no affect my profits, just that to me it seems preferable to get the cash over in to Betfair as the bigger the float I have in there the more offers I can do as I can always afford the liabilities. No problem as this is a marathon not a sprint.

So last night’s events have relieved my Betfair account of £94.54 which will made slow me down until I can top back up once the funds arrive back from SJ.

Current I only have £100 in Betfair, however still plenty to crack on with, so onto the next one on my list just to keep the profits ticking upwards, back later!

Total Profit: £59.25

    Just thought I’d let you know. When you get round to ISAbet.com the free bet can only be used in the markets that they let you use. The trouble is most of them seem to be who’ll win the whole tournaments.
