    not-bono-ever Not what they want but what is good for them

    What your net profit/ loss during the WC?

    I invested a total of 75 , spread over a batch of games

    ended up net 235 up:D

    The account will now be closed, as its too scarey for me to get into

    had some sweats, some disappointments but added to my enyoyment... was down 300 at one point so feel great!
  5. Private Storm

    Private Storm Smell The Glove

    Had a free bet of £20 from 888, so put that on Germany to win @ 9-1

    Obviously lost that

    Put £10 on Holland to beat Uruguay 3-1 @9-1.....was 3-1 until the 92nd minute when Uruguay got their second consolation goal.

    Obviously lost that

    In the same game, had £10 Forlan to score 1st @ 7-1 - he scored 2nd and by about 4 minutes

    Obviously lost that

    In the office sweep I had Ivory Coast, Korea (the evil kind), and Holland

    So kinda won that 'cos they pay out £8 :)rolleyes:) for 2nd

    :mad: and :D in equal measures. Wife said "have you learnt a lesson now?" and I said "Yes, always bet on 3-2".

    rosa anger is an energy

    Up £15 after Spain winning tonight :D but after jinxing Lionel Messi and turning him from the greatest player in the world to Stuart Barlow by betting on him to finish top scorer, it's the moral victory of having got one right that i'm enjoying more than anything

    Shreddy Truth Through Character

    I lost about $400 (£260) in several office pools. I just had this gut feeling at the start of the tourney it was going to be South America all the way (any SA squad, tho I was going for Argentina).

    But then I'm a gambling addict. $400's a pittance to my psyche. Now that the WC's over, I'll be found at my local air conditioned casino, hiding from heat waves and skin cancer...playing blackjack...trying to get that four hundred back.

    And I will. :):cool:

    e2a: Viva España!!!!
