Goodness. I got a mention in the SBC's 'Weekend Wager'. It contained a referral to yesterday's post about the difficulties I've experienced when going through the process of withdrawing some of my cash from the Asian bookies. The SBC are producing a comprehensive guide to the bookmakers to use for football betting, which is to be published in their next newsletter, and I've no doubt a significant part of that guide will examine the pros and cons of using the likes of Pinnacle, SBO and 188bet.
I had no idea this was coming mind you. I wrote what I did when I did simply because I've been having the problems I described just over the last couple of days or so. It will all perhaps tie in nicely though. Certainly what I will do is just go into a bit of detail next week, explaining the outcome of my correspondence with 188bet (with whom I thought I was getting somewhere yesterday, only for them to throw another obstructive email at me today) and 12bet, from whom I am yet to try to withdraw. For the record, SBO have done exactly what I wanted them to do - ie. set up my account in such a way that it will allow me to both make deposits and withdrawals via my Moneybookers/Skrill account - with relatively little resistance.
For now though, my attention is drawn toward the customary take-away and fridge-cold beer that awaits me. They are two sirens, beckoning and tempting me away from the blog. Like an ancient mariner in the grips of the charms of Scylla and Charybdis (or in my case Currylla and Beerybdis?), I am drawn to them like a moth to a light. I am a lost cause. Doomed. I am happy to surrender my will and my soul to those two Friday night delights.
Have a great (punting) weekend all. See you the other side.
Another good day and the dip that was last weekend has now been recovered from. Let's hope we can kick on this weekend.
Not one bet on the horses yesterday.
Summer Of Football
Two bets in the same match in Brazil, and one bet in the MLS provided two winners and a small profit.
Staked 3pts, +0.635pts
Form Lab Lite
Just one bet overnight in Brazil, a home win producing the goods.
Staked 1pt, +0.98pts
More like the form I'm used to, with four winners selected from five bets across South America.
Staked 14pts, +5.318pts
So small but steady profits from each of the services to provide action, all adding up to produce a decent day.
