Re: $93 to a bit more

I do apologise; just checked and it was actually £2.95!

Let me let you into the exciting tale. I put £5 into Skybet's deal or no deal this weekend, and received £3 in return.

A £2 loss?

NO!

For the only reason I was playing such a moronic game was Skybet was offering a free £5 bet if I deposited £5 and played deal or no deal that weekend. Now, free bets aren't stake returned, so it's fairly difficult to extract the entire stake. But by examining the 8:20 1m4f Handicap at York yesterday, goddamit if I wasn't able to get that £5 on geegee Storm Hawk at Skybet at 20-1 (that is to say, 21.0 on decimal odds) while laying the blighter for £5.19 at average odds of 19.321 at Betfair (so say my logs).

After comission and such like, when the poor thing lost I gained £4.95, as I would have done, give or take a penny or two, had he lost...

So... deposit £5... win £7.95... why I do believe that's £2.95 profit.

Happy days...

Next ! £10

Well I was going to trade on Oanda but I have had problems getting funds on the account in the past. So Monday I sent a test deposit of £10 to make sure I got the deposit process right.

As now I'm on Smart Live Markets I'll just trade the £10 as and when.
