Ignoring the issue of child abuse for a minute, the paedophile hunter himself just came across as your average bullying thug. This was shown a lot but particularly in the bit where he was literally threatening and enticing people to assault that guy as he followed him through Nuneaton, which served precisely zero purpose other than to intimidate him. This sort of 'career path' he's picked enables him to do that and justify it and there's no way he wasn't getting a kick out of it. As far as vigilantes go he was far from a heroic one imo.

If c/r flop is good and c/f turn is also good then you must view the Q turn as one of a very small number of nightmare turn cards that can come to completely change our hand's value vs villain's range. That's the only way that both c/r flop AND c/f turn can be correct.

I think Q>A>K>9>5 for views of nightmare turn cards. Really expect people b/c AK otf nearly always off 30bigs, vs small c/r.

I don't think that c/r flop small is good though.

I agree what pleno1 says about betting turn won't really be that good and villains betting range ott will be beating us.

I mainly decided c/f was best due to consideration our stack size and thought it was deffo too risky/thin to b/f or b/c for this many chips so c/f on the Q turn was best

I would like to try and use equilab to see how close equity is but it tilts the life out of me trying to click the right boxes, adding the right suits, ect seems like 50/50 though.

Much rather have my 60bb stack with structure than taking a shot at winning this pot ott

I dud view those photos, and loved them, very nostalgic, though they looked earlier than 1965 to me.

Whatever happened to proper prams? Silver Cross were the pram nuts.

Silvercross still going strong. Only about 1000 notes for the old skool one.

The world of prams is a expensive nightmare.

My best bet was my first.

17 years old, never been near a bookies let alone a race course.  Got a seat on a bus to Huntingdon races from the Golf club as someone dropped out last minute, free bus, free ticket, I could hardly say no.  I had £40 in my pocket.  The old boys on the trip imparted their "wisdom" on me all the way there.  I remember being amazed that one guy had a £1400 bankroll for the day, it really was another world.  When I commented that was a full fitted set of Ping beryllium irons, woods, bag and change, the bus laughed as one and pointed out there was more to life then golf - could this be true? Their war stories of previous trips, aided by an endless supply of hip flasks containing sloe gin had me hyped to the max when we arrived.

I had formed my strategy, would strictly follow bank roll management of £2.5 e/w or £5 win each race and only one burger, I would at least be in the game all day.

A Bacon Roll, a burger and chips and a pint before the first race and I was chasing.  I walked the row of bookies for the first race, too nervous to step up but then the horses raced past, the cheers rang out and I knew I wanted to be part of this.  I remember my chosen bookie looked like he had been standing there since 1954, trench coat, trilby, chalk board.  The person in front of me paid with a £50 note, don't think I had ever seen one before.  1950's man produced the biggest roll of notes I had ever seen from his pocket - I can remember the twang of that huge elastic band, my face must have been a picture as I realised it was a roll of 50's.

As I stood open mouthed, 1950's man said "what you want youngster?"  Now all that wisdom and advice imparted earlier was gone.  Nerves kicked in and I mumbled "Casino Royale*" as he glared waiting for me to finish, rolling his eyes at those standing behind me, I added "tenner?"
"Casino Royale, Ten Pounds, Junior" and a small ticket was pushed into my hand.  As I walked away I looked at the ticket I realised I had backed a Win Only.  Back into the queue, and after a few minutes I was before 1950's man again.  I stammered something about wanting £5 e/w not £10 win, before the win bit had left my mouth "Casino Royale, Fiver each way, Junior" was stated and another ticket was placed into my hand.  I fumbled in my pocket for that last tenner, and skulked away.

I stood by the rail and watched the horses race past, I had no idea what silks my jockey was wearing, couldn't see the numbers on the horses, but I can remember the feeling when my horses name was read out. I remember 1950's man laughing heartily as I presented both my tickets.  "£548 Junior" 1950's man said - I was in a daze.  I was shaking so badly as he counted that money out - 10 £50 notes.  I spent the rest of the day with a hand in my front pocket, thumbing those notes, keeping them safe convinced they would be stolen.

I spent the 48 quid, got positively pissed and never backed another horse all day.   The £500 got me a set of 2nd hand Ping Eye 2 Beryllium's, blue spot, and those clubs changed my life and would pay me back many times over.

* Funny I have no idea if the horse was called Casino Royale, it was Casino something.  Bizarrely almost 25 years on I can still see 1950's man, the roll of 50's and even the twang of that elastic band, but could I be certain of that horses name? Not on your nelly.

Love it...
Keep em coming.

Anyone heard from Hills yet about when they'll pay up on warmest day bet?
Surely they can't wait until Jan 2015!

Believe it or not, I'm nowhere near posh enough for ballet. More a Gascoigne Jr thing, methinks.

Don't get me wrong, I can tell the difference between a développé and a jeté and who doesn't appreciate Darcey Bussell or Carlos Acosta when you see them do their thing, but after that, I'm tapping out.

Feels like a while since I put a horse tip on here. I had two bets today. I've had enough on them and I think, although the prices have shortened a little, that they are both decent bets.

 On Saturday at Ascot it's the Totepool Challenge...an apparently impossible handicap where some firm will go 1/4 first 9 offer the worst price on oddschecker every runner and then tell everyone who goes in a shop to have a tenner each-way that it's win-only.

 The reason it's a great race to have a bet is that Ascot attempt to protect the ground for Champion's Day by narrowing the straight course and keeping the safety limit to 18. 48-hour decs mean they'll be 18 down to run tomorrow morning and plenty of time for non-runners, especially if it rains/doesn't rain enough. I guess we'll end up with 14 or 15 runners and if we bet now we are getting FOUR places and 8/1 the field. There are only four horses less than 14/1 so pretty much anytime we get one that actually runs we've had a value bet.

 I've backed Highland Acclaim from the outstanding O'Meara stable at 12/1. I would have been happy taking 8/1 and I could easily see this being 6/1 or less on the off. Stable in form, horse loves Ascot, unlucky in the Ayr Gold Cup, step up in trip should suit.

 The other one I bet is American Hero. Bit unlucky when beaten at Ascot earlier in the year, he was beaten at 1/100 in running. His other best run was here too and he'll like the drop back to 7f. I backed this one at 10/1. He was tipped earlier this week at 14/1 by Hugh Taylor long before I remembered how great this race is for each-way betting. I still think he'll be 7/1 or less on Saturday and the place part is so solid.

 You can get 10/1 and 9/1 these two. I would happily take 9/1 and 8/1. I'd have more on Highland Acclaim.

 If anyone has any other horses in the race that they see as a certain runner you could easily bet five or six each-way and be doing the right thing.

 You have until 10am tomorrow to bet and then they'll reform the market. From then on it becomes money back on non-runners but you are facing the prospects of Rule 4 and the change in place terms to 123.
