  1. Ten Tracks To Follow - Jumps

    Hi evertorial, I'd just like to clarify the above bolded section for you.Coral do offer BOG and you don't have to place bets on the day of the race, it can be done the night before. I follow the PL tips and use Coral as I'm not limited by them (fingers crossed that lasts for a while yet!) and usually place my bets around 7pm the night before. If you look at their racecards and see the words 'Best Price Guaranteed' with a little orange icon which says 'BPG', then you will get their equivalent of BOG if the price drifts. A recent example being Remiluc in the 16:10 at Cheltenham on 27 Jan, drifted from 10/1 to 20/1 and the bet was placed the night before. I think it's been mentioned before that BOG isn't that critical to overall profit, but if you're using Coral and want to place your bets the night before, you'll qualify for their equivalent. I should perhaps also just point out that I'm not affiliated to Coral in any way! But this is just to let you know that you can get Coral's equivalent of BOG prior to the day of the race. And top tips as ever Billy, once again thank you and PL for this great (and profitable and free!) resource; I know I'm not the only one who massively appreciates the effort involved!
  2. PL tips how do people use these most effectively

    I've been following the tips for some time now (started off with the Win selections only but now back all selections including E/W) and my only recommendation is to really keep your discipline and don't assume that you're doing anything "wrong". As with all systems/selections/tips etc, there will always be downturns (no system can ever be 100 percent profitable every day!) but if you keep with it, you will see the rewards. The only input I can give is that I bet 0.5 percent of my bank per selection (0.25 percent for each part of the E/W tips), so this gives me a potential losing run of 200 bets (which has obviously never happened!) and protects my bank, which is the most important aspect of all. I use ratchet staking, so as my bank increases so do my stakes, but they never decrease and this has served me pretty well. You mention that you use Betfair, have you considered using a BOG bookmakers if you can? I use Coral for all selections and whilst a couple might not match the posted prices, they are all usually pretty close, sometimes actually bigger odds than posted. And on the occasions that BOG does come into play (as seen today with Remiluc in the 16:10 Cheltenham, drifting from 10/1 to 20/1, happy days!) you'll get the benefits of this. As far as I'm aware I don't think Coral close accounts, though more experienced bettors will be able to correct me if I'm wrong? I might just not have got to that level of staking with them yet! But as Sir Puntalot says, BOG doesn't masssively increase profit, and I can vouch for that having followed for the best part of a year! I genuinely think these are the best tips that are available, especially being that they're free. Keep with them, keep the discipline and I'm sure in a couple of months you'll be in a much better position. Just keep in mind that Rome wasn't built in a day and all that!

    Could you provide us with a link to the specific thread on the Betfair forum so we can confirm this for ourselves?
  4. Punters Lounge Tips

    Hi Danny, I bet all Singles tips that are given. I don't bet the Each Ways but that's just personal preference. And that's as selective as I get, but there are many angles you could approach I imagine - excluding Maidens, not betting Class 5 and 6, horses up/down in class etc. There might be more profitable edges but it isn't something I've explored. For me, the important aspect has been my betting bank and the stakes I use. I bet 0.25% of my bank on each selection and recalculate my stakes each day. I never decrease my stakes, but as my bank grows, so do my stakes. At 0.25% this is a small but steady growth, however it also protects me up to a losing run of 400 bets. That might seem on the cautious side (and I think it's important for a person to find the right level of stake for them, so my %age isn't necessarily my recommendation) but the volume of bets means there will be losing runs - as there always is for any betting system. I would say it's important not to expect to make a profit every day, and again this is reflective of all systems. I think it's also important to consider this as a long-term investment. You may have a week where you're running a loss ... but the next two weeks run a profit, showing it's important to give it time. I hate this saying, but it really is about the "bigger picture" and after six months my bank is bigger than it was when I started, which is more than I can say for many systems I've tried in the past! All the best to you however you decide to use them. I'd be really interested to hear if you're considering using them with a bit more of a selective process than myself.
  5. Punters Lounge Tips

    Well I did say they were only small stakes! Although the figures don't lie and they are a little bigger now, so I'm pretty sure I've made enough to at least buy a round! So if you, or any of the team are ever passing through Leicester ... But in all seriousness, I think this is a fantastic resource anyone can add to their betting portfolio. It takes me about 20 mins per evening to place the bets which, considering you provide them to us for free, is a brilliant return on investment in itself. I'm sure I speak for many when I say your efforts really are appreciated so much ... thank you!
  6. Punters Lounge Tips

    I'd just like to add my two pence worth (though the tips have certainly made me more than 2p profit!) and say a massive thank you for putting these tips up on a daily basis. I've been following all singles tips since January and I'm VERY happy with how my bank has grown - I bet 0.25% of my bank as a stake so small stakes to begin with but as the compounding develops the stakes (and profit) have increased very nicely. A huge amount of effort must go into this and it is massively appreciated - thank you to everyone who's involved and long may the tips continue!
  7. £100 to £100,000 (9% COMPLETE) ATTEMPT 3

    Re: £100 to £100,000 (0% COMPLETE) ATTEMPT 2 I really wish you luck with this, Machiavelli, and I hope you achieve your target, but I think betting on goals only and trying to "achieve" four bets a day is putting serious pressure on yourself to "find" a game to bet on. I also think the problem with goals is that they're random events in games. Who can say for certain whether a game will have one goal, six goals or even no goals? You can perhaps make a good estimation if you know the teams playing and know how the game's going but I've seen plenty of games that are 0-0 at half time which end up 3-3 or even more at full time. However, as I said I wish you luck but even though you say you're down £200 from your profits, whichever way you look at it, that's still £200 less that's in your pocket now compared to a couple of days ago.
  8. January Challenge: £10-£1,000

    Re: January Challenge: £10-£1,000 Did this bet lose? Sassuolo won the match 2-1. The score was 1-1 at half time, with Sassuolo scoring their winner in the second half. Technically they "won" the second half as well as winning the match overall?
  9. Skittle's No Hat Trick.

    Re: Skittle's No Hat Trick. 200 and counting?? Fantastic stuff, congratulations Skittle.
  10. KittenSprint's No Hat-Trick Challenge - 2014/15

    Re: KittenSprint's No Hat-Trick Challenge - 2014/15 Congratulations on reaching the 100. Between yourself and Skittle you have two very inspiring runs at present!
  11. Skittle's No Hat Trick.

    Re: Skittle's No Hat Trick. Congratulations on hitting the 100, Skittle, fantastic effort. Hope this run continues for you for some time yet.
  12. 500

    Re: 500 Really unlucky with the Inter match. I got on when the Lay price was 19.5 and thought it was an absolute steal. I would've put a lot more on if the liquidity had been there at the time. I guess it was just one of those things which you can't predict happening/take into account. All the best for your next attempt.

  15. Laying 0-1

    Re: Laying 0-1 Final Score: Luton Town 0-1 Woking, so out on 43 Bets. From what I heard about the match, Woking fully deserved the win. Starting "Bank" this time is £10.28 and as before the aim is more numbers than money ... 1) VVV vs OSS - £10.15 @ 30 (21st Mar, 19:00 K.O.)
