(dont i feel like a tit grumbling about my loss lol)
Got a good one here...
Saw a horse arb at 365 and promptly placed £200 on the enhanced odds (good job I was limited to that). Then, like an idiot, I realise I only have enough money in daq to lay off £70s worth.
So I decide to deposit using another card and have to phone them to have it added. This went great and the lay odds had fallen by now. Great I thought, but the bloody bank went and declined the transaction so I couldn't deposit! Had to go out and return to see the horse came 6th so I'm -£132.10
Also got a call from the bank warning of "suspicious activity" and I have to phone them now to explain that it was me but I don't want to deposit after all now!
Cant remember what bookie it was, possibly globetsport.
Placed a match bet on tennis and came back near the end of the match to find i had actually bet a double. Luckily i won on the exchange side though but If i lost the double and the exchange i would have been down £200 odd.
I learned my lesson to double check my bets after that.
near when i started i signed up to one of the biggest uk bookies, and after completing my free-bets withdrew nearly 500 quid, when the money hit my bank account there wasn't even £200 returned. after a bit of detective work turns out i somehow opted for singaporian doller as my chosen currency. d'oh!!!!!!!
ROFL! Excellent posts...
One big mistake I'm finding is that I used moneybookers GBP to fund a USD account. They said they'd cover all the deposit fees so I thought great... go for it... forgetting that if I won there I'd have a massive withdrawal to make which would incur huge moneybookers forex fees - of course sods law I've done nothing but win at that bookie (betjoint)... so gonna get hit bigtime when it comes to withdrawing.
You might find it cheaper to get the money out hitting against another smaller reload offer, you could then hedge it so that if you win again at Betjoint you have moved all the deposit AND bonus $s into there, thus more profit to cover future fees, OR you just break even on moving the $s out of betjoint and into BookieA, but the $s are now out of Betjoint for free. Fiddle with the figures/odds to get what you want to happen regardless, you get the idea.
Have a plan and stick to it
Yep I read one of your replies on it over on the BJ thread I think it was, really good reply about reloading small and trying to bust out quickly to reload over and over... will see how it goes, should hit somewhere like Pinnys I guess as well at some point sooner rather than later, they seem to be a good place to 'lay off' (well, dutch against) bets at other US sites.

So all I could do was hope the team would win but they weren't the favourite and you can guess what happened.
I've also backed the wrong correct score once or twice but its only cost me a few pounds in profit as I've been able to lay no problem (but it's annoying when you see a nice match you spent ages looking for but have to take a rubbish one cause you backed a different score).
I suppose it's good I made the first mistake when I did cause it was early on in my mb'ing and has made me a bit more cautious for the future.
