Mississippi v Missiouri, similar sounding teams with similar odds, with a non clued up girlfriend placing half the trade.

What could possibly go wrong lolololol

1st game of Euro 16 and I made a mistake after long time;

Arb appear of 1.3% with Pinnacle and local bookie. On local bookie asian handicap for France (-1) was 1.45 and Romania (+2) was also 1.45. I wanted to put $5500 on Romania(+2) but instead I put $5500 on France(-1). Damnnnnnnnn.

Now the match is going to start after few hours. I am not sure, how I can cover this bullshit without taking a massive hit in my profit. I have decided to ride this bet as gamble. If France score 1st goal, I will cover the arb but if match draws on 0-0 or Romania scores 1st goal then I am fucked.

Its worth ringing the book and saying you placed the wrong bet and can you change it.  Most books will do this if its the 1st time you ever asked. But if they cant I for sure wouldnt be risking a total loss of $5500.  Just bet Romania(+1) and bite the bullet.

I don't think there is a good way out of gambling with this amount of money..
If you win, you will FOR SURE gamble again, after getting the easy fast money.
If you lose, you will regret not having covered your position as much as you could have.

Ahhhh..... match finally finished and France won with last minute goal. Atleast I get all my money back. I am happy for this. But it's stressful watching this match. In the future, I am not going to gamble like this crazy.

If you didn't cover a bet I'm almost sure it wasn't the last time when you gamble :) Only big loss can cause that you don't want to gamble anymore I'm affraid.

Just had a nice one. Had an open bet on the Gilles Muller - Raonic match for Muller to win 2-1.
Tried to cover it when Raonic was 1-0 up with a bet in the 2nd set for Raonic to win third set, but made stupid mistake and placed it on Raonic to win the second set :(....

Of course Muller won the 2nd and Raonic won the 3rd...

A day of one fuck up after another.  Laid someone odds of 5 on a 1.2 shot for £250 backers the lucky git  :-[ :-[.  Has a tennis retirement cost me another £300, and a live bet go wrong for £400. 

Glad im off on a week holiday to Sofia tomorrow lol

Sept now at -£200 ffs, gotta laugh I have dodged mistakes all year up to today, and to top it all I was going to take today off as well but the missus got called in to work as an emergency this morning.

Cheers Max, had worse days lol  Doesnt feel quite as bad as im on holiday tomorrow. 

God has blessed me with a head that doesnt ever go on tilt, I thank him for that has saved me thousands to be sure.  Still grabbing fivers and tenners euphemistically even when down £2000 on the day.
