Hi Mike,

Best advice I can give, have a search through the forums for some of Marks posts/threads, theirs lots there to get you thinking, and probably give you a fair idea of how he goes about his business.

Thank you Thorns,

I'll do that, when I have a bit of spare time.

Do you also lay the field?

At a quick first look I can't see how it can turn a profit.

Cheers,

Mike.

This may be a very silly question....

When arbing we convert the odds to a %. If we have for example 4 selections, those selections once converted must total less than 100% for arbing to profit.

Now, if arbing for 2 place getters (field of 7 or less) can we go up to 200%?
And up to 300% for 3 place getters?

Mike.

Its in simplest form yes you are right. 3 places = 300%. But its harder because you might not get all 3 to place.

Hahaha yes picking 3 to place is quite difficult and something I rarely do.

Thanks for the reply, I might look at 2 place getters, though that's not easy either.

Laying the field is also giving me a headache.

Might be time for a glass of wine then bed.

Cheers,

Mike.
