Had Matsuyama and Oosthuizen both EW, so a nice £60+ profit.
Oosthuizen worried me, he was the one player I hadn't considered with 5 to go. If he'd squeezed in payoff I'd have panicked.

Fortunatley with such small initial stakes £3 e/w. The return of £650 gave me wiggle room to cover.

Niw to spend it :)

Good call, took Oosty on Thursday and Matsuyama Friday,
Matsuyama come through twice already for me.

Yeah I had him place for me early season.

Oosty is is my masters pick. Only for places, but seems to do well there. Already laid down on matsuyama for all the majors too (individually) earlier in season.

I only play small money. So I'm covered for season now. Given up on footy after last year or so of less tha predictable results.

Had me daft £1.00 on Saturday matches, had an 8 fold for 4 grand bet on Sat, cashed out after 15 mins for 21.00, would've got nowt as only had 3 right at full time. 😂😂

Get yourself a Betfair or Smarkets account (even better as smaller commission). Then you couldve just placed 1 lay against Hideki and covered all outcomes. Easier and significantly more profitable!

Ill look into it. But there will always be a trade off. I imagine if he'd lost I'd have been looking at a smaller pay off than would have happened my way.

Honestly, there really isnt a trade off with markets betting vs sportsbook. Odds are also far better - e.g. I got Tyrell Hatton @ 25s this week where industry best price was 20. Bookies run a 7-11% margin on their sports books. Smarkets run at 0% (as its trading) but you pay 2% commission. There's free calculators over the internet to show you how much to lay, and you can amend up or down depending on how confident you are of the back or lay winning. And whatever happened you'd have been guaranteed a win as you're betting against an event happening - in your case Louis Oost couldve held his 2nd on the 18th and you're in a world of pain!
