Our Results

We will be logging our results on this page each month.

Results are based on a level stake of a 1pt unit for a win bet, and 0.5pts each way (1pt in total) for each way selections for Mar-May 2017, and scaled for between 1 and 3pts staked per bet from June onwards as advised in each post.

We ourselves, naturally, back every selection we make on the site.

Pool Return & Gross Return

Expressing the results of a betting strategy is generally done on a pool or kitty basis. This is similar to a concept of Return on Investment.  The idea being that a certain amount is set aside, the investment, this is split into a number of unit stakes, bets are placed, and returns are expressed as a percentage movement in the pool over a period of time.

In our case our period is a calendar month, and we use 50 unit stakes through til the end of June 17 and rebased to 100 unit stakes thereafter in recognition of strike-rate and the introduction of multiple point bets

We reset our unit stake as 1/100 of the current pool at each month end – as such returns are compounded monthly.

Gross Return is the profit expressed as a percentage of gross amount staked in a month.  This is a measure to note, but less relevant than the pool return.  An example to illustrate this would be if you took £100 to a Blackjack table and gambled for 5 hours and came back with £150, you would consider this a 50% profit (a pool return).  You would not add up all the amounts staked during the game (lets say £500) and consider it a 10% profit (a gross return).
