Just back from a long jog, quite possibly one of the most frustrating days trading cricket I've ever had. I'm sure people thought I was mad jogging the streets talking to myself at nine on a friday night. Traded the Saffers and Australia match and was going fantastic, had €600 green Saffers and €80 red Aussies, refuse to go all green and let it ride. Then wickets start falling and the Aussies go 1.45, I lay that and it bounces back to evens and I'm sitting on €1,600 green on the Saffers with a little-ish red on the Aussies after taking some of the evens.
Still refuse to go all green, the Saffers fall apart and I end up taking 1.07 on the Aussies to get €20 out of it. People may say well so what you've won, but jesus I sat here all afternoon and traded myself into a great position and because I was too greedy I mess it up. Completely my fault I didnt win over €500 when it was there in front of me for the taking but I was greedy, horrible feeling after, but the jog got it out of my system hopefully. A lesson learned to always take your green when trading cricket, it really is a sport were anything can happen, I normally do always take equal profit thats what hurts the most right now.
Still playing the horses poorly again and gave up after three races, just going through a bad patch it seems but I've got to play myself out of it and thats the only thing you can do. The tennis bet was €500 on Nadal at 1.03 in Monte Carlo to win his match today, on him for the tournament aswell.

Word from Ballydoyle this morning is that Mastercraftsman didnt work too well, nothing to be worried about I dont think though. I'm still in the Rip Van Winkle camp and wouldnt be too worried who Johnny rides.
