    Believe me, it feels even worse when you have money on it ;)
    I don't have to believe you, I know from experience :sigh:

    You guys bet on games? how much have you won/lost?
    I think I'm around the break-even point. Though I probably lost a bit more than I won.

    How much you can win depends on where you go and which game it is. Don't you have betting shops where you're from? :undecide:

    ADP Timers we have a betting thread somewhere in the forum, check it out :)

    I bet small amounts and usually break even, and some weeks i win. I keep a spreadsheet of all my bets, rather sophisticated if i may say so myself. How much I've won is for me to know though :p

    It can't be that impressive since you clearly state you only bet small amounts so why you're being all secret about it is beyond me.

    Loser :p

    Keep trying Erik, you'll get there ... One day, one day .. :D

    I know how it gets frustrating getting so close to a correct prediction, I also hate it when I change a prediction only for it to turn out to be correct :(

    Ahh but who said you can't win by betting small amounts at ridiculously high odds? ;)

    Oh, and I suppose you pulled it off? :howler:
    A woman in Ireland recently bet €10 on the ponies and won something gelasticly enormous, like €20,000. She claimed she'd never bet again.

    I'll wager she's lost it all by now. :D

    Not at odds of 2000:1, but it's surprising how few matches you need to put into a multipler to make the odds climb to at least 500:1

    I'll leave it there

    The odds are in your favour I'd say :D
    You willing to put money on that? :devil:

    No way. There's no way we could find out for sure and you with your superior English would talk me into paying up.
