Thanks @Tomas I started with realistic expectations so I'm very pleased with the slow but steady progress I've made. I've no doubt I'll need the full 2 years I gave myself from the start if I'm ever to progress onto making real money in the big boys playground of UK horse racing.
Time will tell but I've really enjoyed it thus far so I'm happy to patiently wait and see what happens.
Thanks for posting this blog. I'm very curious to see how you do on Betdaq.
I regularly experience similar problems on Betfair through Geekstoy. Sometimes when I press the button to submit a bet it just freezes without placing the bet thankfully. I've learned to unfreeze it I need to click once on the x in the top right corner. This doesn't close the app but it does unfreeze it which allows me to continue trading.
