Rugby Trading on Betfair, and a wee World Cup sweetener

(If you’re here for the Discount code, it’s down the bottom) Hi all. It’s been a while. I’ve been all over the place recently, mostly doing stuff I would rather not be doing but some good stuff in between thankfully. I have a friend who trades rugby and since rugby is on everyone’s mind lately, I thought I would write a brief post just to open any rugby minds out there to the idea of trading. Rugby can be a great environment for beginners to play with the strategy of “laying the leader” which is basically just value betting. I posted about value bets a while back too, but generally …

Annual Update & Yes, it’s done!

Hi all, (assuming you’re still here!) I am so sorry for all the delays, even though I know my apologies and excuses must sound pretty hollow by now! I knew it was bad, but I didn’t realise how bad. I happened to look back through my emails and even some of the comments on the site pages, and there were conversations almost 2 years ago where I said it “wouldn’t be long” until I’d release a detailed ebook covering pre-race trading. The response to my free article on the subject greatly increased the number of requests and therefore the pressure on me to hurry it up, but I still can’t …

Happy New Year!

I thought now was as good a time as any to say it! I have just this minute finished the final polishing of the pre-race trading ebook. I have sent it to a couple of people who are proof reading the final (final final final) version for me before I publish it. In the mean time I will sort out a few other issues (sleep being the first one!) like security on the file, working out how to deliver it (it’s a large file) etc. Anyway, just wanted to say HNY to all the regulars and I hope that VERY soon those of you who want to trade the racing …

So close!

I badly wanted to have the pre race trading ebook out in time for Xmas but it’s not going to be possible. It is complete except for a few minor edits/typo corrections. However I am changing payment processor and due to the time of year it hasnt been too easy to set it up, slow response from customer service people etc. I am on it flat out though so I am hoping it’s just a matter of days now until the ebook is ready to publish. However a couple of people will be proof reading it first. It’s not far away now but I can’t say exactly when, a week …

Pre-Off trading ebook update…

Just a quickie post as I have had quite a few requests for an update in the past few days. The ebook doubled again (in size), so I am flat out burning the midnight oil. I am literally doing nothing else except sleeping and eating. It’s not far off now, but I do have some issues with payment processor to deal with once it’s complete so although I expect it to be completely written in around a week it doesn’t look like it will be actually available to buy for maybe another week after that, possibly two but hope not. (I refuse to allow people to steal this as has …

A quick word about “Value” bets (or trades)

I have had a few comments recently regarding the concept of “Value” when trading on Betfair. I answered those queries but after responding to another one today I thought I would put up a quick post using my reply in case other readers are wondering about it too. Maybe it’s just a coincidence or maybe there is a forum thread buzzing somewhere on this topic lately, either way…..   “Just wondering about this whole “value” concept that I have read about so much over the last year or so and how this relates to the methods used to pick LTD selections. How do we know we are getting value with …

Update

This is extremely painful to type, I was absolute certain that I would be posting an update last week to say “ebook ready!”. I am not going to bore you all with the reasons/excuses (no, they really are reasons, unavoidable bloody annoying ones too) but between some more health issues and a very serious family issue which will consume me for the next week, I won’t be able to write much if anything until around a week today, and I think it needs 1 week of very dedicated work, but given how things go for me, i should say make that 2 weeks to be safe. So I expect 2-3 …
