I'm hoping the fact that I haven't yet selected Man Utd, Chelsea or Tottenham, might put at a slight advantage.
I always try to leave a few good teams till the end, but the fact is that the game boils down to luck. You just need to hope that in a week where you have chosen a team like Norwich, at least 1 of the bigger teams slips up and puts a good number of people out.

The chances of winning it are slim and I would never claim to have won it because of my careful analysis. For example, I had Wigan in the week they beat Reading 3-2 in the last minute.

Its coming up to the end of the season now, so does it rollover to next season or something? I would hate it if ends after the last few games of the season, I would hate to share £500 with 150 or so people.

It rolls over. Just make sure you don't forget about it when the new season starts

Yeah I'll make sure to put it on my calender. I actually forgot about it in week 2, so they automatically picked Arsenal (first team alphabetically, that I hadn't already picked), luckily they won that game, although I was going to pick them anyway, had I not forgotten.

Serena has destroyed her XD Might be worth finding some good odds on her winning Rolland-Garros. Free money really.

I share your pain bro. I once staked £199.95 on a player who went a set and a double break up. He lost. **** happens man and it's so frustrating and infuriating. I'm not sure how Djokovic lost yesterday either.

This Rome tournament has been quite rich in terms of surprised and it's evident half the players have one eye (if not both) eyes on the Rolland-Garros tournament.

I did say yesterday that she would smash her. Took serena like 5 games to get fired up then she just out muscled her all the way. I like Eranni to beat Azerenka today, she's looked god awful yesterday.

I think I'm going to bet 3 sets for Azerenka v Errani.

Errani is at home so I'd expect her to not lose in straight sets, Azarenka can be unpredictable and I'm not even sure if she'll win so I'm putting this down to 3 sets.

Worth noting that Azarenka has never dropped a set v Errani (at least in the last 4 years) but I think Errani will be fresh considering she didn't play yesterday and Azarenka struggled.

Hmmm she beat errani 6-1 6-2 last year at this tournament. Maybe I change my prediction

As a side note errani must be laughing, played 5 sets of tennis, only had to actually beat 1 person and has recieved semi final payouts minimum lol.

The more I think about it, the less I want to bet on this game. Azarenka has 4 comfortable victories v Errani. It's just the fact Errani is at home and had a day off... Maybe a small stake on Errani set 1, and if that comes in, Azarenka match.

Lost big on NZ in the cricket due to not knowing how to hedge it properly.

Total winnings are now 1400.

It was at one point 1650.

Decided to call it a day with the betting, and take the money I have won/
