Any of you lads like to gamble? I've got £25 here and nothing to spend it on, so I thought I might try and gamble it on something. I've played poker with friends, I usually lose my patience quite quickly, and I don't know much about the strategy of the game. Some of my friends are quite into it, and sometimes win fairly big. I've been watching some clips of the World Series tournament this year (or whatever it's called), and the game is starting to make more sense to me; I'm spotting the tactics people use in the short term, over the course of a game, etc. I met a professional player once, who had 7 or 8 windows open on his laptop at a time, and made a supplemental income playing poker.
I bet on some horses earlier this year, which other than scratch cards was the first gamble I've ever made in my life, so I'm thinking about doing a football accumulator, despite not actually watching football. But it seems to me that if you follow the numbers, ie racing scores in newspapers, you can make some smarter bets.
Anyone want to share some tips? Right now this seems like a more appealing way to waste money than on getting shitfaced.
