  • Making the switch to full-time pro betting
  • Managing variance as a punter: dealing with flat spots versus big winning runs
  • The changing betting market: how increasing market percentages have impacted the way a punter needs to bet
  • The use of Betfair on NSW racing and the impact of the 10% commission rate
