We decided for bold. We took a shot. After a couple of red-hot days it was worth it to try and continue the ride. If things hit just right we close out the season big, big, big. If things flop -- we still manage a profit after betting boldly throughout the 36-day meet.
Well, unfortunately we flopped on Monday. Hard to believe we couldn't eek out anything -- but it was just one of those days.
However, we still can crow about finishing above $1000 and therefore making a profit at the meet. And the fact is, regular readers know we came into the final day sporting a season-long ROI of over 25%. We could have chosen to sit this dance out and instead sit at home and admire our profit -- but we went for the gusto. That's what the game is all about...
But when you're taking a swing like that one the last day, when you're up that 25%, heck, the month was super-solid. It was a great year for us over here on the Bankroll Challenge page. Hope you had fun following us as well...
