blast from the past: The Betfair Academy

Well after the eventful interview in yesterday's post, I thought it was time to share the last piece of Betfair training material I'd been hanging onto. It's been three years since I left now and the company haven't done anything with it, so it shouldn't be left sitting in my archives any longer.

The Betfair Academy was a training course I devised with the help of a couple of others. Its aim was to create Betfair trainers rather than more advanced punters but it works just as well for both. There were plenty of guys who enrolled in the course just to improve their trading. The vast majority of Betfair users will find something of use in there, even if it's just a keyboard shortcut or an extra trading strategy they'd never considered. The trading techniques aren't necessarily profitable, they are there to make you think about what else you can do on an exchange, rather than just simple backs and lays.

Here's the link - Betfair Academy handbook - it's an 8MB .pdf file and the link will take you the Mac download site (me.com). The link will remain active for 60 days (just email me or comment and I'll reactivate it if necessary).

Bear in mind, this handbook was the accompanying text to an interactive seminar, so it's written to encourage discussion, not as the definitive text. Also, it was originally written in 2006 and then revised for this final 2008 edition - quite a few things have changed on the Betfair site since then, but most of the information is still useful.

And best of all - it's free! Can't guarantee I'll be able to answer everyone's questions promptly or in full detail, but I'll do my best. Ask via the comments or email me via the address on my profile.

  2. Cheers Scott.

    I remember the time when I wanted to be a Betfair Trainer. As soon as they introduced PC1 I changed my mind.

    All the best,

    Mark
