    I've started this 2 days ago with a tenner.

    First bet was the whole lot on there being 1 or more goals in our game against Athletico. Won so I was 10% up.

    Today backed 1 or more goals in Spurs game but only risked £4 & backed Schalke at 1.02 in play when they were 2 up. Both have won so I now have the princely sum of:

    £11.57 against a target of £10.61.

    I think I'll stick with backing 1 or more goals in games over the coming weeks as they tend to provide 6-10% profit opportunities at worst, which means I can bag my 3% without risking my whole pot every time. I'm really going for the disciplined, long term approach here - which means no multiples and no horses!

    Good plan Spion. Was an excellent winner last season as long as you avoided Pompey at home.....

    Today's first bet is at the tennis. Radwanska to beat Petrova in play (set up and a break up) at 1.07. Risked whole pot of £11.92.

    Also backed Federer @ 1.08 so the pot stands at a "massive" £13.80 which is £2.87 ahead of target.

    The whole lot goes on England to beat Papua New Guinea in the RL World Cup tomorrow morning at odds of 1.02 to win 30p odd! It'll be worth it in the end.

    If it wins then I'll put some on their to be 1 or more goals in the Man U game at Everton, and if that's a winner then I'll have done my target and more for the day.

    EDIT: Both wn, although England were very unconvincing at the price! Balance now stands at £14.90 v target of £11.26. Will now look for another bet for the 3pm games.

    Right balance is now £14.87 and I've backed 1 goal or more in WBA game at 1.08, to win £1.15

    Balance is £16.

    So I've risked a fiver on Garcia to win in the golf at 1.4 and the remainder on there being 1 or more goals in our game this afternoon at 1.11

    Ta Liv.

    I've followed that up with the whole pot on 1 or more goals in the Real game at 1.03, which frankly was pennies for old rope! Followed by £3 on the New York Giants in play in the 4th quarter at 1.3.

    I'm kinda going over the 3% per day thing but I'm not taking as many risks as I did when I tried this last year. Pot now stands at £20.80 against a target of £11.59.

    I'm doing a slightly different version of this on William Hill except I'm allowing myself to do the odd double and treble. I'm aiming for 10% on that having started with £5. I'm up to £11.18 against a target of £5.48.

    Hahaha!

    I backed a couple of bets before bed that were due in overnight (counting as today's bets!), they were:

    England to beat Middlesex in play @ 1.4 for £2
    Philly to beat Tampa in play @ 1.55 for £2

    Both came up so the pot stands at £22.65 v target of £11.74 and so I don't need to do any more bets today as I've exceeded the 3%.

    Bank is now £30.94 v target of £12.30 after having backed several tennis matches late on in play and also backed there to be 1 or more goals in various games.

    I tried to logon last night from home to post my bets but couldn't remember my password!

    I layed the 0-0 scoreline in the Derby v Norwich game £52.50 won £5. I also put £10 on Dagenham to beat Grimsby (they won 4-0) winning £8.60.

    Bank now £113.60 against a target of £103.

    Bank is now £39.62 against a target of £12.67, nearly backed the Gooners in play when they were 4-2 up. So glad I didn't!

    Bank at £118

    I have taken an early price on the Scum to beat Hull at the weekend £50 to win £9.50

    My target bank by Sunday is £116 but I would like to reach £130+ which will remove the temptation to bet everyday i.e. staying ahead of target and not chasing.

    Right balance is now £47.44 versus a target of £13.05

    I've been backing on average about 5 items a day including tennis, footie and snooker. Mainly in play bets where the result is minutes away but nailed on.

    I've been averaging about 20% per day but as the pot rises, then so comes the risk of losing a higher amount with one of my all in in-play bets. So I'll probably start being more cautious from here on in as I'm well ahead of target.

    In fact, if I continued at the current rate, then in 9 days time I'd have £800 in the pot! If I manage to be at £100 by this time next week then I'll be pleased and well ahead of target. I've also been helped by the fact that I'm off work and therefore can sit and bet during the day!

    Right, I'm starting this today.

    Bank has started at £20. Bet £1 in play for Bolton to score next when it was 0-0. Balance is £22.60

    Have made a spreadsheet to try document my results and keep me more disciplined. Have only got the first 8 weeks on it so far and the target for the end of week 8 is £101.64. Does this sound right?

    This is my aim for now. Will work out more if i last that long!
