I’ve now done a handful of these Betfair client profiles and I’m blown away by the recurring theme.
These guys are so young. And smart.
They’ve grasped opportunity where previously there was none. They use the nuances of Betfair and rapid-fire technology to their advantage. They “work’’ relentless hours, glued to keyboards and TV’s sometimes 24/7, but they’re smart enough to plan ahead, re-work their time.
Most, like Andrew, have partners who, somehow, “get’’ it.
These guys are the antithesis to the standard image of the punter. They’re not old and ragged and desperate. They don’t shoot off rent money on bad hunches. They are strategic.
And they’ve accumulated remarkable life stories.
