Some days everything goes pear shaped. What a disaster today was. I've been away from betfair most of the day and wasnt aware of the problems the site is having, theres a service announcement about it, the markets arent loading for some people etc. But every bet I "tried" (done!) on the cricket, the whole page reloaded, but the bet didnt appear on the screen. I entered it three times thinking it hasnt gone through, but after half an hour on the phone to Betfair their saying is was going through I just didnt know it (as it wasnt coming up in my bets!).
Anyway, wanted to lay Yorkshire for €500 at 1.45, ended up doing it three times with a liability ending up at just under €750! By the time I closed firefox, did the normal thing deleting cookies etc, open back up the market to see what I've gone and done, horrible feeling. Whats worse is the price was moving down fast too, I got out of the bet thankfully, all red for €200 is OK considering I suppose. It was a losing trade anyway, I've just made it worse x3, tried to make it a bit better but actually gone and made it worse again for an extra €50, so €250 all red, the game hasnt finished but I've a massive headache and just going to give up for the day.
Just watched the daily horse finish 4th after backing him each way. That hasnt helped matters, or my mood. Not a happy man. Thinking about having a week off, or a few days at least. And also giving up the daily horse thing, make it more select so I dont have to do it everyday. I'll put up something on the side everyday but not back it, only when I post. Wasnt too keen on todays card and just a bit gutted he finsihed 4th so it wont be everyday now it'll just be when I like the look of the card. I'll see how I feel in the morning as regards the time off, I'm proper pissed off right now and have that really fed up feeling, will probably feel different when I calm down.
Anyway no P&L line as it hasnt finished but heres the screen shot..
