Finally spring/summer seems to be here, has felt like the longest winter ever...off to play some tennis today (will obv lose as I am against Yorkshire's no.1 player, Chief Horneris), there is one big downside to this change of seasons though, the light mornings which now includes pigeons making a racket from 5am, really doing my head in!
Tennis still going well on the trading front, bit poor with no live footage in the early rounds of Indian Wells and Miami, especially when you get round 1 live streams from places like Outer Mongolia.
Still not got my head round pre horse race trading yet, I just cant seem to follow the swings, in race trading seems the way to go, but then this seems to have a high level of risk to it...need to stick at it I feel, as there are so many meetings every day all year...

Did some nice tennis trades yesterday, laid Ferrer from the start and should have let it run a bit longer as he ended up losing, aswell as backing Del Potro when a set down...he came back to win.
But then came the BIG mistake laid Murray (or cretin for short) from near the start when 1.03 but then checked out the stats on Donald Young, world no 143 and should obv be easy for Murray, so I got out of my lay (sigh)...the other matches were on at this time so left it alone, a bit later I saw Murray lost the 1st set in a tiebreak, ahh higher odds to back, nice!
So I put a chunk on him and put the match on live on Sky, OMFG the complete and utter turd burgler was not even trying just like in a match last month, is his Mum or Brother trading him on Betfair? the odds moved fast and I had to take the red, its good that we have a British player in the top 10, keeps some interest in the sport over here, but this guy is like the Diouf of Tennis! ha anyway rant over...
One day I will catch one of these low lays full on from the beginning, until then I will keep backing cabbages...;)
One last quick rant, Betfair have been an abs disgrace this last few weeks, with Saturday downtime now been a regular thing, it was off for like 7 hours yesterday, with people losing £1000's through no fault of their own..sort it you monopoly mugs!
