Just thought I'd chip in with my progress (or lack of) to date. Been sticking to the horses mostly and just when I think I've got the hang of it I do something stupid. I think others have mentioned it but I just find it so hard to accept the small losses. Here's my P&L from yesterday and you can see what I mean! Chugging along nicely making a small profit on each race when along comes a massive (comparatively) loss on the one race - wiping out all the good work for the day. Starts off with me not accepting a 30p loss or so. Then, escalates to me not accepting a £1.20 loss, then ends with me trying not to lose my whole £5 stake!! - but only just managing it.
If I could have just got out to only lose 30p or so on that one race then I'd have been £4.00 or so in profit for the day. If I could repeat that for a month I would be quite happy! But, unfortunately, I usually end up with a similar P&L to this one.
Oh well... - will press on to the end of the month!
