Can having a split personality actually improve your betting?
Professional bettor, Patrick Veitch certainly seems to think so.
For those of you not in the know, Patrick Veitch is well known for betting on the horses. And not only is he well known, he is also pretty good at it.
Okay that might be a bit of an understatement. He is extremely good at betting on the horses.
So good that he and his team stung the bookies for £10,000,000 over an 8 year period.
So it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two when it comes to betting.
Patrick Veitch describes the ideal personality of a successful bettor to be – one part brain surgeon – one part mad axe-man.
The brain surgeon is cool, calm and collected. He is able to rationally look at an upcoming race, carefully piecing together how he thinks the race is likely to unfold – before finally picking a bet to place that looks to be good value.
Then the brain surgeon passes on the baton to the mad axe-man.
The mad axe-man will then do whatever it takes to get the desired stake on at the desired odds – Bookmaker account restrictions be damned!
You likely won’t ever be placing bets quite as big as Patrick has placed – and therefore won’t have just as much trouble getting your bets placed. But bookmaker account restrictions are still quite common among bettors of lower stakes, so you can still benefit from having a little bit of mad axe-man inside you in doing whatever it takes to get your bets placed.
And everyone could definitely improve their betting by having a personality a little bit more like a brain surgeon – carefully analyzing races and not letting emotion cloud your thinking.
If part brain surgeon, part mad axe-man sounds like a perfect description of yourself, great! Stick at betting, keep putting the work in and you will soon reap the rewards.
However, if your not blessed with those personality traits, all is not lost.
Betting doesn’t need to be as hard as brain surgery.
So long as you’ve got a little bit of mad axe-man in you, you can hire a brain surgeon to pick out the profitable bets for you.
And when I say brain surgeon, what I really mean is a profitable tipster.
