Like most on here if I had to rely on punting as my primary income to pay the bills I'd be in the poorhouse very quickly, I have no doubt about that.
It's hard to imagine how people like Bkmac can devote the time to tipping 40-50 horses per week, I simply don't have the resources or to be honest the knowledge to successfully invest that sort of time into study. Neither does Bkmac judging by his results.
I'd be one of the smaller punters on here, and there are far better racing minds. But my only golden rule is to punt selectively. I've had my best year ever profit wise, based on having fewer bets than ever. The last 4 horses I've tipped on the forum have saluted, all at decent odds.(apologies for the Keith-like self congratulations.) But that stretches back over 3-4 months. 1 tip per month is hardly going to put food on the table. If I had to tip 10-15 horses per week to survive, I'd be broke within a month.
The guys who truly make a quid on this site are probably those that very rarely contribute to the forum, and go about using the site for the great form analysis more than anything.
For the rest of us its merely a hobby. Hopefully, one that produces a few dollars more than what we started with.
