Barry for prez.
-6u for me
Glad wasn't just me who shit out last night.
I litteraly got 1 out of 10 right
I feel like I ignored the sound advice somebody gave on here a couple of weeks ago about needing to be a Kenyan rather than a Jamaican in this game.
Last night I tried to be a Jamaican. I went massive on the Santos-Barao-Nelson treble and got burnt. Going back to being a Kenyan next week, it's more boring but it works.
-4 units for me
21-9 on cards
Have a parlay with Nelson that's still alive that will hopefully make this card forgettable
Santos rly screwed me. I was very close to having a huge night smh
santos killed everyone.
I hate him lol. Top 15 my arse, he can go to bellator.
woahhhhhh timeout, I did my math wrong like a dumb ass. I actually won money last night. I'm an idiot.
I'm up 4.7 units. Still hate Santos though. Could've been a much better night
22-8 on cards lol
Wasn't it you who told me not to put Cyborg in my parlay because her odds were too juiced? Lol.
this is what saved me
Yayha Dec + Formiga Dec + Patrick Dec
.33 units won me 8.8 units
Good bet. I did get Yayha to win at 8/11 which was nice odds in hindsight. Bit of damage limitation on a disastrous night.
Long term is all that matters
I was the poster boy of what not to do when you bet. burns and Santos absolutely killed me, so i doubled up on trinaldo, made some back, doubled up again on roy and made back some more, then let it all ride on cyborg in the first to get back to the positive for the event. when cyborg was just content to let the fight stay in the clinch instead of making space and destroying her and the fight went to the second i lost my entire online bankroll. Lost $800 just like that.
Its something that i am working on, and had been doing so much better at not looking at losses as having to win money at every event but fell off the wagon last night. It sucks but something that most if not all of us have gone through. I am just going to put in a few hundred and start off betting small again, try to learn from my mistake, and learn how to take a loss and not to over extend myself even if it seems too good to be true. Because nothing is a sure thing. I hope this helps someone in the future think twice about hitting the confirm bet button when they take a bad loss. because more times then not, when you double or triple up trying to make up what you just loss, you end up going deeper and deeper in the hole.
Man never seen one fighter burn so many people.
Some advice i'd like to give out guys is never bet more than you are willing to lose (i'd recommend 10 units as an absolute max - my max is around 7 units). And equally as big don't chase. As someone said above it's a marathon not a sprint. Just suck it up and move on to the next event. Everyone chasing on Cyborg r1 (a prop bet no less) was crazy.
cyborg wasn't content to stay in clinch, lansberg wouldn't let go..
and as far as "max units willing to lose" -- that is gonna vary for everyone. but you should have a general idea of how much is too much.
you should absolutely never bet more than you're willing to lose. no one fight is ever worth it. we have mma almost every weekend nowadays
