Had a good week this week, makes up for the first few weeks in November which were a bit slow Profits really boosted by a good day on ladbrokes slots wagering for the slots splash bonus up £100+ on those for the day.
I left out a £100 payment from Sportingbet which I received this week. Although it is 'profit' (it was the £100 of free bets they'd refused me originally and finally decided to pay out), it doesn't seem fair adding that because it was really owed to me back in June/July.
On the down side I pretty much lost my Bluesquare account this week and Ladbrokes sportsbook is looking similar, starting to limit there as well now.
Really should try and get more intro bonuses done, didn't do a single new one this week
Here's the info for this week, new total is £1630.48:

Wow nice bit of luck on those two nags!
Yeah I had a good one there, two bets at two different bookies, £100 and £50 both at 13 vs average of about 11 at Betfair.
Mmm these are the two, see if this makes any sense from my matcher sheet:
If you scroll the above you can see the stats for those better^ - can see it was already a 24% arb on the second bet at coral, 13 vs 10.5 at betfair, but then I also underlaid it so I'd just break even if it lost (as I do with everything now) and that ended up with it returning 200% when it won!

Much prefer doing things this way now, really makes winning at the bookies less painful (although still is painful seeing accounts get limited like at Bluesquare last week ).
No way... this has just been on the national news at one 5 mins ago!!!
Apparently this was the first time the guy who rode the horse, Anthony Knott, had won in 28 years of riding!!! Talk about luck

you had to laugh at Knott starting to celebrate ages before the line ... i thought that jockey on the far side might have got him lol
(after that many years and all the corruption in horse racing thats meant to go on you'd have thought him winning would have happened ages ago)
Hehe yeah that was ace celebrating before he crossed the line, I remember watching it live on willhill's site and I thought he was just being confident heh.... that or he mistook something else that looked like the finishing post... nuts anyway can't believe my luck now I know about that bit of news... was also just mad because I'd only just posted the post about 'wise men say' and then it was on the news... 4 days later?! wtf must be a slow news day.
Had a fairly good few days since last update.
I'll put figures in tomorrow
Hopefully give the new challenge a go also
My profit so far in the Xmas challenge is:
Ok updated. I had a better week than last week.
