So this is it, my first post of the 2000pound challenge. I try and do this weekly.
I started off 5 days ago with my first offer, this ended a balls up with a nice result as I got lucky. I received my new bank card the next day and signed up for bout 3 SUB’s then ploughed through another 8 the next day and I a few more from then I think. The main problem now is having enough in betfair to cover my equity, I won a 20bet@4 at the bookies and lost around the same from my betfair account, lucky I was able to withdraw the funds back to my card. Ive put a list below if each bookie ive opened with and show my bets with them. I’ll probally only do this the first week to show what odds im betting at. After that I’ll just post up my results. Its really just to see if I need to be doing something different to increase profit.

Match/Race: (Q) Man U vs. Rangers – Backed for a draw @6.7 for 50
Laid for: Laid @3.95 for 60
I missed here as you can see by the result. Basically what I did was backed a draw for corners @6.7 and laid for draw in final score meaning that if it was a draw I would stand to lose 60 @3.95 which is about 240. Wouldn’t be nice for my first trade, but I got lucky and Mau U out a goal in with about 5 minutes of play left, and won 60 on Belfair take off 3 fees and 7 profit after you take off the corners bet which ended I think somewhere around 14-3 to Man U, so yeah got lucky there and have the option to claim a 25 bet.

I layed this for 10 when I should have for about 7. I did’nt feel it would be a draw and would make up for the crappy odds, so I took the risk as I thought the risk to reward was in my favour .

This one ended up doing ok but was lucky. I put a bet on the wrong markets. I backed the ‘to win” and laid the ‘to place’ market. I seemed like there was a huge mistake and I had gotten very lucky but again, it was too good to be true. The only way to fix was to lay the ‘to win’ market but I didn’t have to correct amount to lay another bet, so I quickly deposited at betbaq and backed the ‘to place’ market. I came up with if the horse wins, I’m down around 15, if it places, im down around 90, if I doesn’t place im up around 12. I decided to watch this one, and was so happy to see the horse go down, so another experience to learn from. Aslo waiting on a free 20 bet from them

I wrote the (above) first half of this on Friday night and I’m finishing it now on Sunday night after all my footy bets have settled. Still waiting on this one.
So that’s what ive done so far, The total of the above is 84.44. Ones I still need to claim.
Coral for 25
Ladbrokes for 10
Betbaq for 20
Betclick for 20 (Doing my Q-bet on one tonight)
So easly another 50-60pounds. I also played the slots on betfair by opting into the lose 25 on your first arcade transfer and get a refund. I won 20 on that which was nice. So all that gathered, when I complete all standing free bets, ill be up roughly 160ish.
So after my first few days, I can look back and say that it probally would be best to start off slow and maybe only do like 2-3 offers a day. Im not be to be to active the next couple of days as I need to transfer funds from betfair to my MBing bank account so I can do more SUB’sHopefully this will be around the same time that I clear up only pending bonuses.
That’s it for week1 then. Hopefully this is the start of something nice
