The big day!

I mentioned in the last post that I wanted to build my own website, the free sites are very limited in what you can do. Well, since the last blog I've made things happen: I've bought the web domain, put up a temporary message with a link to this blog, have come up with a map of how I want the site organised and even managed to fit in some basic designs. I don't think the site will be properly ready for another couple of months yet, but I'll be putting up something basic over the next couple of weeks. What with databases, automated emails and the like it's going to take a while to know how these bits work.

Here are the results since the last post:

System Selections continues its return to form and I'm very happy to see it. Results would have been even better over the last few days had Saturday's results been placed. I was at a football tournament on Saturday and from what the Misses tells me it was partly my fault that bets weren't placed (seems as though I left some accounts a tad low on $$). Still, at least we got on with Equine's bet coming in at 8.5 and 4 Pronged Attack's much needed winner on Sunday.

Football Elite's ante-post selection R. Van Persie came in each way for a 0.5 PT profit. I was fairly content with the return seeing as though it was with a bookie that has severely restricted me. The same goes for another ante-post bet that will pay out on Saturday (99.99%), the bet on Messi to be Champions League top scorer, also with a bookie that has restricted me to £3 win or £1.50 each way with BOG removed, why don't they just close the account down?

Today is a big day, on a professional level this is the day I feel that I'm a full-time bettor/trader. The reason being is that before I had several commitments limiting the amount of time I could put it. Now, it is only my part-time job in the afternoon that gets in the way. I don't plan on relinquishing my part-time job, the simple fact is that betting and trading can lose an edge from one day to the next so until I've built up considerable financial reserves my part-time job is staying. Even with considerable reserves in the bank I may not give it up, it's somewhere to socialise and use my vocal cords.

By the way it was my penalty miss that sent us packing at the tournament after reaching the quarter finals. I had never missed a penalty before, but for some unknown reason I hit it with my heel, instead of it going into the top right corner it went into the middle of the goal at shin height, right where the keeper's legs were. There is a saying in Portuguese, "azar no jogo sorte no amor"... life goes on. There's another tournament this Sunday, goals will be taller so if there's penalties I'll be looking for the smash.

I'm off to put some ice on my hamstrings, they're killing me. Then there's the massage tomorrow morning, can't wait!
