Last year I lost money on the limited gambling I did on the horses. I did however make money betting on football. Mainly in-play. This year my approach is going to be as follows. I'm going to allow myself a set amount to play with on the horses on Saturdays and other big days. This will vary between 6pts per race and 12pts per race, depending on time, number of races, conditions, how I'm feeling etc.
12pts = 1% of my betting bank. I'm also going to allow myself 12pts per bet on football in-play, mainly at half-time.
I'll keep a count of profit or loss on the sidebar. This will be based on ALL my actual bets, as opposed to the exact blog entries. So it will include the effects of any greening out, last minute bets, midweek betting etc. I can't be bothered to keep two running tallies. That said, it should still provide a fair reflection of how the blog advice is going.
Let's see how it goes. At the same time I'll be thinking about updating and self-publishing my book on gambling, and generally working out a way to get back into the game.
