In this latest Betting Clever episode, SBC Editor Peter Ling chatted with the vastly experienced winning punter and tipster, Steve Lewis Hamilton on the thorny topic of how to handle losing when betting.
The reality for many of us who bet is that we will strike more losing bets than winning bets, and although long-term those winning bets make us a lot more - it's how we handle such bad runs, especially those sizable bad runs which is critical for long-term success.
Steve has a wealth of experience in coping with losing and we talk about some of the strategies he uses to put such runs into perspective and to give him confidence that he will come out on top.
Pete and Steve also explore some of the psychological issues at play when betting, the tricks losing runs can play on our minds and the value in having a betting network or support strategy of some kind, especially given the solitary nature of betting these days.
Remember - Betting when you win is easy - betting when you are losing is hard and lonely and this podcast is here to talk honestly about this oft-overlooked, yet essential topic that all punters, no matter how good they are must endure at times.
