If your decision to bring your thread to an end was made out of lacking the time, I would understand completely. I have to disagree with you however if you think it is in danger of becoming a "look at me, look how great I am" thread, I'm 100% sure no one thinks that. The thread perfectly illustrates how long you can successfully operate a match betting career and how much can be made, if you have the knowledge and the dedication.

I truly hope you have a change of heart and continue with this thread for as long as you match bet (hopefully for years to come). By all means edit, if you think some posts were unwise, but this thread could become truly legendary if you continued. You might even have to change the title from "the 2nd 10k and beyond" to "the next house and beyond"
Imagine re-reading it 5 years from now? You must be a little curious to see just what a legacy you could leave us with...?
Any thread with 5K plus views on this little old forum is some achievement and indicative that people are genuinely interested and amazed by what you're doing - not "oh look how much old big head, made this month".
