Additional Profit £25
Anyone who read my blog earlier may have got a little excited by seeing that Sean O’Hair has gone on to win the golf tournament and I still had a return of £100 on Sean at 19.30pm.
Unfortunately, myself and Denise had already arranged to go to a friend’s house to see their newborn baby tonight, so we left our house just after I posted at 19.30pm. At this time, Sean was 3 shots back in 3rd and was trading at 10 on Betfair. Since I’d guessed I wouldn’t be back in until the golf had finished, I had to decide whether to let the bet run and win £0 or £100, or trade it in for a guaranteed amount…..
I put lays in the market at 6, 3, and 1.8 for decreasing amounts. In total, I swapped a risky £100 for a guaranteed £25 as O’Hair went on to win the tournament.
The fact that it appears that O’Hair has won quite easily is slightly annoying but I still think I did the right thing at 7.30pm. If I was staying in to watch the golf, I’ve no doubt I would have won more but it’s difficult to trade on something when you are not watching the event or at a PC!
Overall, I’m happy with this profit as I would have settled for this at the start of the day.
