Bad dream for Fisher

It was very nearly back to back winners for the Racing posts Steve Palmer at the weekend as Ross Fisher was always there or thereabouts in the Portugal Masters before eventually  being chased down  by the athletic Irishman Shane Lowry. Fisher had a five foot put to take it into a play off but managed to lip the putt out and in doing so blow up my 1.5 point selection at 45/1. The each way return wasn’t too shabby but with none of the American selections getting anywhere near the pace it was a slight set back for the golf betting bank.

“Flying under the radar”

Well it appears that my last post about the crazy workings of the geniuses who work at bookmakers was not just some bad luck on my part but pretty much par for the course with plenty of people contacting me to say similar things had happened to them. The question is what can you do about it? Well the first thing is don’t even bother to waste your time mailing bookmaker.com to ask why they have limited your account or removed certain privileges.

I’m about £199k profit away from being effected but guy who thought up this genius idea to piss people off must have had a real “head in his hands” moment a couple of mornings in a row this week when the site crashed. When it did finally start to work after a few hours the horse racing markets were certainly very gappy and although i’m no where near an expert they just looked and felt wrong.   This morning I was in the process of placing my weekly golf bets (from the RP and […]
