Zvonareva winner against Lisicki
Some of the BIG guns are already out from Roland Garros but some other are doing great. Image on the left showing Sabine Lisicki (loser) after the match against Zvonareva (winner). It was one of matches where I decided to start trading with lay bet on favorite. As so many times before it was a profitable strategy.

By the way, Lisicki is a player from my older post "Jackpot time" .) Don't you agree she (Lisicki) looks like Azarenka on the image, if you know what I mean ? ;)

Another favorite lost today and I missed it :(
I am talking about Stosur - Dulko.

I had a nightmare last night and  it's one of the reasons why I missed first match on Centre court today. With nightmare I mean "Windows 7 Recovery". Something strange happened to my PC and it took me some time to find what's going on. I have an antivirus software running on my PC and was amazed how could I get such sh|t into my system. I still have no idea but hopefully everything is just fine now. YOU are happy/lucky if you are using Windows system and still don't know about "Windows 7 Recovery" malware :)

It looks like this:

I had to manually remove it from PC and if you want to know more about it I found a great site with info and instructions. Better to be prepared LOL

Such day's I hate windows and even more like my Linux PC ;) Wish there was trading software for Linux, already tried many times to setup and run The Toy on my Linux system with no luck....well, let's hope, maybe one day :)

Back to trading. I hope you doing great. Yesterday was one of those BIG green day's thanx to Maria Sharapova !!! :)

Maria lost first set to 17 year old Caroline Garcia, she was also down 4-1 in second set....After about 15-20 matched bets in 1st set I had a small profit on both players. Decided to play with my green and started laying Garcia at some very low odds and was hoping for a miracle. Said to myself...wait and see how this young girl manages to play under pressure. Maybe you already know what happened ?!

Sharapova came back from 1-4 to 6-4 !!! and 3rd set was 6-0 to Maria...LOL easy ? no, it's never easy but it's also never over before match point is won....

Azarenka is still going strong ;)

There was some of tennis matches this week where 1.01 was matched and a player lost. I am not saying you should lay every player at 1.01, it could also be a warning if you believe there is free money to be taken and keep backing low odds favorites. It's NOT the way I trade tennis...;)

As you see I decided to not post more of my screenshots showing my profits. I make this decision after some of comments I received.

Good luck !

If you are one of followers you should remember some of my posts about Victoria Azarenka. To refresh your memory you could read posts tagged "Azarenka" {find it under labels and click Azarenka}.

Image on the left is from US Open 2010. I feel sorry for this still young tennis player. How amazing it is...she retires with a shoulder injury 2011-04-20, is back to play BOTH singles and doubles 10 days later in Madrid. She won doubles final in Madrid and lost singles final to Kvitova. Before tournament in Madrid I said:

I am looking forward to see how she will be doing and waiting for any signs of next retirement, would you bet there will be retirement before Roland Garros ?

If Betfair had market open for this kind of bets I would be a winner today.
I am NOT happy she retired today but as you see I am NOT very surprised either...Sad story indeed.

Just checked my post about Azarenka from 5th May 2010, same tournament as today Rome, Italy ;) Here is another Azarenka image I posted before on my blog...

Have we seen it before ?

I didn't made a fortune trading this match but happy with my green ;)

And here an image showing how she looks outside the courts ;)

You have been warned before about placing money on Azarenka !

Wish you good luck and to Victoria ... happy recovery ! ;)

Bethanie Mattek-Sands
Woman on the right side is called Lady Gaga of women's tennis by some people. Whether it's right or not I don't care but she is definitely very special ;)

Bethanie Mattek-Sands was a great shot for us if you layed Pennettta (1.66) from the start. In my previous post I was looking forward to watch & trade Petkovic-Kirilenko and Mattek-Pennetta. Bethanie did a great job for me taking first set and finally win match in 3rd set, exactly as needed on my side.

The second one, Petkovic (1.45) was another lay from the start. This time Petkovic was broken early and Kirilenko had a great chance to win first set. Unfortunately Petkovic was back to 5-5 and won 7-5. Anyway with 7 breaks of serve during 1st set we had plenty of trading opportunities. A very nice profit on both matches but could be huge green for me if only Kirilenko could control her nerves and win first set. Maybe better luck next time ;)

Some screen shots from yesterday below....

And if you like "Lady Gaga" here is more....LOL

What about today's trading ? I still not decided what to follow. I like Starace-Troicki and again, Bethanie against Gajdosova (Groth). In both games there is no clear favorite, odds about 2.00 ...With a few breaks of serve we should be in profit, the problem is what to do from start...LOL
Mattek is an extremely offensive player and I may back her from the start. A god idea is wait and see who is going to start serving in both matches.

Ohhh, what a shame !
They decided to change courts and now is Wickmayer-Ivanovic on the center court, Bethanie-Gajdosova on court 1 :(
Wish you good luck !

Here comes an update...

Mattek-Sands has lost her match, 2-6, 4-6 and I was completely wrong about this one.

A very good advice from me is:  never follow my advices LOL

I must admit it was my lucky day, I lost backing Bethanie from the start but just before start of this match I found there was a change of courts which means NO LIVE stream from this match so I put only small stake just for fun....another advice here..

Never place any bets just for fun !!! ;)

What happened in this match ? How could I be so wrong ? I have no idea, maybe she was out of gasoline already after playing very late 3 sets match against Pennetta yesterday ? She only won 4 points when Gajdosova serving in first set !! Amazing, and I don't know if it was Jarmila playing very good or our Lady Gaga not in the best form....

No big damage done here on my side...look here, I am watching on my red and hoping for a miracle LOL

Wish you better luck !

This will be a very short post from me as I really don't have much time at the moment. I am happy I decided to work on my bot last few days.

Tennis is at the moment a very BIG joke with players retiring from matches one after another.  After 3 hours of tennis today we have already seen 3 retirements. Players are also doing their best to complete first set, nice...

I am only using small stakes these days, with Roland Garros coming very soon we must be very careful. The biggest joke was Petrova against Ivanovic last night. Very early in the match it was obvious Nadia is NOT doing her best, not trying, not interested at all. The audience started to show what they think about her performance after 6-0 in first set. 2nd set started as first and at 3-0 to Ivanovic, Petrova start talking to a trainer, I think injury time-out is coming. I was surprised she decided to retire without taking an injury time-out ! Very strange, very short conversation and Nadia decided not to do her job anymore ;)


I see Nadia Petrova and Rodionova are playing doubles at the moment ...LOL

Maybe some of you start thinking I am too suspicious, well...maybe I am but I am a tennis trader so many years and I know what I am talking about....Azarenka retired due to a shoulder injury 20th April and was back playing both singles and doubles 10 days later. She also WON doubles final and played singles final {lost to Kvitova} !

Yeah, doctors actually can do some miracles...Below are games still to be played today. Petkovic against Kirilenko is one I look forward, another one is Mattek-Sands against Pennetta. Anything can happen in those games. Petkovic was VERY poor last time she played, it was awful tennis with big number of unforced errors from Petkovic.

Be careful and wish you good luck !

Story continues as finally Stefan Belopotocan decided to put an article and link to my blog on his web site. Well done !

It was quite funny when I said he could find my link on and his answer was he had not much time to browse other sites ;) Later admin of chrtba said he {Stefan Belopotocan} was there almost every day.
Stefan B may be a very good coder and doing great job developing his software. My posts are NOT about software, I am only posting about customer service, about a man called Stefan Belopotocan. There may be other people involved in Bfexplorer customer service. I have nothing against any other people working with Bfexplorer ! Anyway, from what he is doing it looks to me as it's one man show .

I afraid some of you don't have a clue what's going on ;) Here is a short summary what happened so far:

I received email from BFexplorer HQ:

Dear bfexplorer user

I have just released for pre-release testing Bfexplorer PRO 2 offering more than 36 new features. If you want to test this new version, please use this link to install Bfexplorer PRO 2:

link to his web site is here......

Kind regards


Look at text marked with red color...I already used 5 days trial some time ago but this time it's about pre-release version. Ok, I thought, ok..let's try. I click download link, install software, trying to log in...what ??? Software says trial is over. The only option is to SUBSCRIBE. I can NOT log in to test his PRE-RELEASE version as he asked me to do in his email. Ok, no problem. So I send an email to Stefan asking for a new 5 days trial, is it possible ? No, it wasn't says Stefan.

I did not notice anything from you on bfexplorer forum, so why should I give you more trial? 

Keep in mind we are talking about a version for PRE-RELEASE TESTING. I was involved in beta programs many times, from very small developers to giants as MS or Adobe but never met such arrogant human as Stefan Belopotocan.
And now please have a look at this image. Day after I posted on my blog about Bfexplorer customer service Stefan start spamming users on his mail list...

How does it look ?

And now more....
Following text is taken from his web site 5 minutes ago...

I receive emails asking for extended trial period and because my time is limited I am not able to support all users asking for extended trial, replying on their questions to explain how to use bfexplorer with their betting or trading strategies, explaining bfexplorer features and so on. Therefore I gave extended trail for some users and not to others. Here there are two examples when I refused extended trail.

Those 2 examples are my blog and another user trying to make a deal with Belopotocan {more about it later}

How does it look now ? I have no words. This guy must have some issues or he has no control at all what he is doing ??!!!

Look here what he says:

Bfexplorer PRO 2 is pre-release version and I published it for public allowing more betfair users test this new version for bfexplorer and get some feedback from them.

And now:

If your trial expired you can ask for additional days, but it is required to post some feedback on bfexplorer forum.

Give him some feedback and he let you trial his about what, feedback before you even had a chance to test ?!! If you need feedback from me I tell you it's great weather here in Sweden at the moment !

Thought he needs feedback about his latest pre-release version but he must be talking about something very different LOL

If you want to have a new trial just answer to his email as on image above but I recommend you still remember what he said...

I receive quite a lot of emails similar to your one, and from my experiences it is just wasting of my time to reply on 99% of them. So you will help me to get rid of such betfair users.

 So you never know what his answer will be....ohh...maybe this man don't like Mondays ? I shouldn't send my request to him on Monday LOL

A very good advice to you, Stefan Belopotocan:
STOP spamming users on your mail list and I promise number of emails in your mailbox should decrease. Or stop complaining !

On the first day he told me he receives so many emails like my, requesting free trials etc...and he send me emails from another was same user he is referencing to in his article...I was shocked. Why would he unnecessarily share personal correspondence ?

I had NOTHING to do with the other user and I don't want to read other peoples private mail !!!

It's what I mean, would you really like to do business with this man ?! Try to make a deal and if there will be no deal he is going to share details with us ? ;)

It's not the way I am doing my business....

A few more wise words from Stefan Belopotocan:

Those who knows what they are doing at betfair, or what they want to do mostly end up on my web site, mainly when they want to build custom software or automate their trading.

If you still not ended up on his website you know why...LOL

Who do YOU think you are and who do you think WE are ???!!!

I receive many questions about Geek's Toy, how to hedge, using ladder, Tick Offset etc. Having some spare time tonight I decided to record a very short and simple movie using The Toy's latest feature {TRAINING MODE} ;)

It's about how to change your training bank, how to enable Staking & Tools, how to enable Hedged Tick Offset. I hope it could be useful for some new users of The Geek's Toy, new traders or anyone still learning how to trade.

For best result watch it in HD mode if possible...

Forgot to say, TRAINING MODE should be enabled before you log in as shown on image below...highlighted area.

I really want to leave it behind me so I hope it will be the last post about bad customer service. I saw myself as potential customer but not anymore...

Part 2 of this story will be about email they are sending NOW to Betfair users still on their email list.

Here it is:

Dear betfair user

Lately I sent you offer to test new Bfexplorer PRO 2:

here follows a link to their web site
Many of you already trial Bfexplorer PRO before so when attempting to login one receive trial expired notification.

If you want to trial Bfexplorer PRO 2, please send me email that you want to trail Bfexplorer PRO again. If you use Technical support window and I am offline, please read the following article:

here follows another link to their web site

Kind regards
Stefan you believe they learned their lesson ? All I did was asking friendly for a new 5 days trial to be able test PRE-RELEASE version of Bfexplorer PRO 2...I did it AFTER they send me email about this PRE-RELEASE version !

Have in mind what he said to me yesterday...

I receive quite a lot of emails similar to your one, and from my experiences it is just wasting of my time to reply on 99% of them. So you will help me to get rid of such betfair users.

Why ? Are you curious about my first email to him ?

No probs, here it is:

Subject: RE: New betfair explorer: Bfexplorer PRO 2


Unfortunately I have used 5 days trial already but would be happy to check this new version of BfExplorer.
Is it possible to have a new 5 days trial for this new version ?


From my previous post you know already what happened after ...I am surprised how they changed their mind now LOL

Well done Stefan Belopotocan ! almost as well as people @WellDoneSoft ;)

Would you like to do business with this guy ?...Good luck ! You may need it ! ;)

Hopefully end of story !


My last conversation with Stefan Belopotocan looks like this:

Give me the link so I can reference it to my web site.

Best regards


and my answer was...

This one should make it easy to find....;)

Henrik is a trading forum in language Stefan should understand very well LOL

Very short reply from Stefan this time:

Just give me your url, I do not have much time to browse some other web sites.

And finally my last reply:


You are too lazy....;)

Google is your friend...I will make it easy for you this time....

Search words: Bfexplorer customer service



Too bad, just found out now after sending an email to Stefan...

Enjoy Bfexplorer Customer Service should work even better as search keywords ....:)

Could it be Stefan at his HQ ? ;)
I have been lazy last few days, had some quality time with my family. Not much to say about trading.
This weekend I got an email from Stefan @Bfexplorer HQ. Here is what he had to say in his email...

Dear bfexplorer user

I have just released for pre-release testing Bfexplorer PRO 2 offering more than 36 new features. If you want to test this new version, please use this link to install Bfexplorer PRO 2:
here follows download link...

So I was curious about new features and asked about trial ( used 5 days trial already long ago), asked if I could get a new trial....the answer was...


I did not notice anything from you on bfexplorer forum, so why should I give you more trial?

Best regards


Sent him another mail:


Ok, maybe you're right ?

I had nothing to say on bfexplorer forum so far as I never used this soft for trading. I am Toy user looking for some automated solutions.

Why would you care and try to get some new subscribers.....?


and his answer was:


Exactly, why would I care? If those who are really interested either subscribe or contribute another way. I gave extended trial only for users who contributed some way on bfexplorer forum, giving something to bfexplorer community.

I have removed your email from my mailing list.

Best regards


End of conversation here...maybe I am too stupid, maybe I should NOT expect any more trials ?
Anyway, it was NEVER a problem with people at WellDoneSoft (authors of MarketFeeder Pro). I asked for a new trial and I got it when I wanted to test latest version of their software. Very friendly and service minded people there, WellDoneSoft....

As I never subscribed to Bfexplorer and never used their software for trading I find it hard to contribute and give "something" to their community.

To be honest I don't care about trial, there would be no issues at all if he only could respond in a friendly way. What I hate is ignorance and no respect. I am used that people in this part of Europe {Sweden} running their own business are more friendly...but who knows where Stefan lives ? It's for sure another part of this crazy world and now I know what to expect from him. I have to add I have some great friends coming from Slovakia, so it's not a problem, it must be something special about this guy named Stefan Belo or...hmm..should I maybe say Belopotocan ?

I believe I expected too much from those people, it's one more reason to stay with The Geek's Toy and Gruss Betting Assistant, their service is GREAT !!!

This post is just to let you know what to expect from Bfexplorer customer and potential customers service ;)

Ohh...wait ... another email from Stefan Belo....I let him know I am going to post our conversation on my blog and his response is here:

I am really happy you will do so, mainly because of two things:

1) I receive quite a lot of emails similar to your one, and from my experiences it is just wasting of my time to reply on 99% of them. So you will help me to get rid of such betfair users.

2) Those who knows what they are doing at betfair, or what they want to do mostly end up on my web site, mainly when they want to build custom software or automate their trading.

Please do publish such article so I can reference it on my web site as well.

My last comment will be...

Stefan, thanks for your answer. I will stay away from you and your software...

I am too busy now, still trying to find out what and how to do it at Betfair....LOL

This guy is amazing, see here: Those who knows what they are doing at betfair, or what they want to do mostly end up on my web site

Personally I believe image above says a lot and is more true than his statement in RED....I may be wrong....LOL

Now I only hope you {Stefan} will keep your promise about reference from your web site to my post....

I feel the need to update with one more image...

I know this wasn't a promise but anyway, how about this part of your post ?

share one of my trading application (BXTrader) as the open source.

and....The Geek asked a question, Also what day will you be open sourcing it?

I missed your answer...The one I found is:

BXTrader is a betfair trading software for manual trading only and you can use it for free if you are PRO subscriber.
