Total £1,027.44

YTD £12,390.82

Well all in all a pretty rubbish month betting wise. City won the league which cost me financially and emotionally as I was a wreck for the next 10 days or so trying to take it all in. I could have got out of my trading loss quite easily but to be honest it never ever crossed my mind amid the chaos and drama of the last day.

Along with my house move I have found for the first time in over 5 years that my interest has waned dramatically-and as a consequence, poor decision-making and impatience have crept into my game. I have always prided myself in being very level headed and calculated at this so I need to re-focus in June. I’m currently using two cups and a piece of string for my internet access making it a particularly frustrating time. In other news, my house is wonderful-a significant chunk of it having been paid for by this lark.

Anyway, June is shaping up to be a busy month with the Euros. Lots of offers on the go and my wallchart in place, I’m hoping for an enjoyable and profitable few weeks.

A good month made better by an amazing £750 win on a 50p spin on WillHill bingo slots. I’d gone to bed after a night shift and set my alarm for an hour later (ouch) to hit the best odds for Aintree and finished off with the 2.50 free mobile credit. To be honest I could barely see the screen and was sure it said 75p!

I’ve decided to keep publishing my returns as I have always found it self-motivating and helps to keep my focus.

April tailed off badly with a poor masters for me, trump doing me no favours on the snooker and my bets skewed towards Utd in last night’s game. I have found balancing work, preparing to move house and doing this lark a real challenge over the last few weeks, nonetheless hand-made curtains don’t pay for themselves

May rolls on with the snooker, MLB, FA Cup, Champions League, City winning the League and ‘bert towers’ moving locations.

Ladbrokes Fri night 37.50

A great month for me when I finally broke through the 100k target after 5 years, 1 month.

Cheltenham was both fun and stressful, probably more the latter at times. Mugging my Corbett freebet the highlight! The month also brought the Scoop6 adventure which helped boost profits and gave everyone involved a real rush. Defa and I’s planned celebrations at the winning post yesterday were unfortunately thwarted.

I also bought a new house during the month-who says gambling doesn’t pay!, became single, poisoned myself which left me bed ridden for a number of days and became a mod on the forum. Quite a month!

I hope I have shown what’s possible with a little endeavour and application. I would like to thank dreamy for starting this thread back in 2009, Andy and co for keeping it and the likes of MITK and numerous others on the forum who have helped, encouraged and put up with my City rants!

Lots to look forward to in April; the Grand National, Masters and the return of MLB (and my money offshore no doubt).

Thought I’d include a picture of my simple set-up:

An excellent month for me. I am close now to my 100k target and this month saw me celebrate 5 years at this lark. So another 2k or so and I will be reassessing where I go from here.

I should add that bert towers is a one man operation-one account, no short cuts.

Chelts and then MLB to look forward to in March.

A nice to start to the year with a whole range of offers, and especially sweet was the positive variance with Bodog’s casino reload. Just 4k short of my target now and with plenty on the go I still hope to hit it by the end of Cheltenham.

I celebrate 5 years at this lark in a couple of weeks. Where has that gone?
