Wow this topic got out of hand quickly.

I'll throw in my thoughts in as well.

Would I prefer to learn from someone who is living off the punt or someone who has never done it ? Pretty simple and I think we all agree it is the person who is living off the punt.

But eventually the person living off the punt can make enough money to no longer need to punt. Instead they want to impart their wisdom (probably only on a select few) and so they teach. This is the sort of teacher you want to find. You want someone who has the experience and knowledge to speed up your progress to profitability.

Already offered, but an incorrect assumption was made. People who know me know you only get one chance.

Takeout of 10%??, go to Betfair.

Is Betfair really a feasible option to those placing bets the morning of the race day. Most Pots are small or you rely on SP. Am I mistaken?

If you use the exchange and want to pt it on in the monring then no you won't have much of a market to put it into.

BUT......

You can put it into the Betfair SP market which has more then enough liquidity for a bet and it will get matched at start time. If you want a certain amount of odds you can also put in the minimum acceptable odds for Betfair SP.

Its actually a good thing for those betting. If you like a horse at $3.00 and it starts at $2.50 then you should not be betting it. But if it runs around at $4.00 then you should be on it. It actually forces you to think about your acceptable price and in my opinion that is a very good thing that most punters do not think about.
