The World Super 6 Perth is off and running so our man kicks off the blog to detail his lay book. Read Steve's first in-play update for the week here...
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is yet to kick off (preview here) but the first round of the World Super 6 Perth is all done and dusted and Adam Baylis' 33/1 fancy to lead after the opening round, Brett Rumford, has done just that. Rumford is also Dave Tindall's 28/1 each-way selection.
I won't be doing anything with the event until after the third round now but as I finalised my lay book before the off I thought I'd detail it nice and early on. I mentioned in the previewthat I planned to set out and lay everyone in the market trading below 100.00 before the off and I aimed to lay each one of them to lose around £700 each. I finished up laying a total of 33 players but some were only partially matched.
Sam Horsfield, for example, I only managed to get a fiver layed on at 95.00 and I layed just £2 on Richard Green at 85.00. Should I do nothing further and Horsfield goes on to win the event I'd lose £27 and should Green win, I'd win £266. The vast majority of the 33 were layed in full and my biggest loser is Hideto Tanihara. Should he go on to win and I do nothing more with the book, I'll end the week losing £317 but if any of the players I haven't layed at all go on to take the title I'd end the week in front to the tune of £426.
I'll take a good look at the state of play after round three, when we're down to just 24 competitors for the match play element and I'll decide what to do with my book then.
I'll be back again tomorrow with a look at the state of play in California after the opening round.
