I made my money by selling too soon. I never lost money by turning a profit.


i had a small punt on betfair today. It was the match AEK-Kerkyra for the Cup and odds at Betfair were around 1.14-1.16 before the whistle. Prices moved up and down as regular and asian handicap lines jumped from -1.75 to 2 with low 1.5 odds then as always when the match was to commence the price returned to a high -2 line with 2.05 - 2.10 odds.

My initial bet was a lay at 1.16 for 2000 euros with the wish to clean out with profit around 1.25 - 1.30 prices. As always i got a little excited and i let the bet running to get a little higher profit...
Below i have pasted the image of the bets. Odds and prices aren't important... The important is...

That i've left my bet open till 45th min of the game... And what happened then? A penalty... I have placed my bet 17:31 to create the sure win and seconds after a penalty was awarded to AEK.

The funny think is that AEK missed the penalty:)

Have a nice evening...

ps. which was the luckiest part?
