And it begins....

Flew over to the sunny states on Saturday to start my pilot training. So far its all been induction and paperwork, so have had time to catch some rays and get to know the place. All great so far and the sun is shining everyday, better than back home! Will hopefully try keep the blog updated as much as i can but obviously it will be to do with flying instead of trading as betfair is banned out here!!!!! Anyone any tips how to have a bet please let me know!

That's all for now but will try get some pics ups/video over the coming months.

Best of luck to everyone trading!
Ciao for now

Just a quick one! 
Here was my set up for trading the Eurovision winning market.....Brother on one laptop with map of europe open and my laptop open with the market open.

My overall plan was to back countries that were close to the country giving the points out.......as easy as pie!
Made a tasty £90 for 20minutes work!
Same time next year me thinks!!

France were favourites @ around 2.7 before the start.....when i saw them sing i wondered why the hell where they! And the voters agreed!

Anywho off to play some backgammon (more like learn how to play, because betfair have recently added it to their arcade)

Time for some Green tea

Up early today and trying green tea for the first time. Have heard all the benefits it can have, so I've jumped on the bandwagon! Please god don't make it taste crap!

Managed to trade the Boston V's Miami game last night in the playoffs. What a game it was. Miami trailed for 99% of the game then Lebron managed to kill the game at the end and somehow they won by 10. I managed to make £22 on the game in the 3rd quarter, so was happy just to watch the rest of the game. In the first quarter i was down £14 but manged to crawl my way back into the green scalping on timeouts and on breaks. There is so much room to this in basketball its crazy especially in the 2nd half as the swings are more drastic if the game is within a few points. Generally the price will move 5-6 ticks correcting itself on timeouts. As people sometimes over estimate the swing in-play. Have a go at it, if you have time you will see what i mean.

Anyhow, I'm off for a run now on the treadmill. Time to sweat!

Will be trading both the tennis and horses later, my bank at the minute sits on just over £100. I will be building my bank from now on and wont be withdrawing any of it, as i am off to Florida in 9 days to start pilot training so won't be needing the money from betfair. Hopefully i can make it up to a decent amount.
