tough day again

Another difficult day, this time I didn't get away so easily, ending up with a £2.48 loss for the day. I think part of my problem was trying to scalp in markets that just didn't suit it. Once I had adjusted and was looking for swings, things seemed to go a bit better( although without being great).With my strike rate being so low, I also lost a bit of self-discipline, and deliberately let a couple of races go in-play, which is not a good sign. I am still obviously not able to take a sustained run of losses and accept them.
Betfair going down for a few races didn't help either, meaning less races where I had a chance to pull it back, luckily I was out before the start of the race which seemed to cause all the problems.

  1. Hi Neil. Interesting that you're having a bad couple of days - me too. Not sure why I've been performing badly, but as you say, the BF crash this afternoon certainly didn't help things.

    Maybe consider taking a day or two off. It seems to work for me when things go a bit wrong. It can't help to have these days on your mind, and getting away might clear the head.

    In any case, hope it picks up soon!
