(Or how we lost $400 in the blink
of an eye)
We thought we'd publish this to share
with you and graphically demonstrate that we can all fall in to
the same traps - if only we try hard enough!
This system was going to be called
"Ruffies" - because it would have been the only system
the greyhounds could have asked for themselves. (A joke Joyce)
We liked that name. We didn't go much on the outcome.
We thought our rules were "different"
but reasonably well thought out on a lot of levels. This was to
be the daddy of all greyhound place betting systems. Here were
the very simple and straight forward rules.
Rule 1: The only dogs that were to
be considered were those that started at more than $10.00 at their
last start and either won or finished less than 6 lengths from
Rule 2: No emergencies considered
Rule 3: If more than one contender,
the widest drawn dog is the selection
Well, like all "great"
systems it started like the proverbial train - our first day of
operation and investing our hard earned was January 25, 2007 through
our Victorian TAB account as we were comfortable to concentrate
on Victorian greyhound meetings because of the excellent free
internet form guides that are available.
What a day to start - on the first
day winners at $9.30, $20.40, $19.00, $42.30 and $20.40. Good
Lord almighty, it's Christmas!!! And remember, we were only looking
for placed dogs - not winning dogs. We had discovered the golden
stairway to heaven. Hmmmmm. We were only looking to make a modest
5 units at a time on our bank so this had to be the best ever
system for place betting on the dogs.
Everything progressed well for the
next 209 bets until the middle of February 2007 and then -------
well, you check it out on the workout sheets and then cry for
us too. (!!!!!)
