Alright mate

£20 does seem low if you're backing tips as singles however if £20 is all you can afford to lose on gambling per week then you just need to make it go far. Maybe try the Xsquare thing Brian has posted?

£2 stakes can go a lot further with it and max you'll lose per week is £14. If you hit a couple of winning lines the you might build yourself a decent betting bank to let you back tips as singles. Minimum single bet I'd suggest would be £5 so you'd want to have built at least £300 before backing tipsters to recommended stakes. With a £300 betting bank you could follow maybe 1 or 2 tipsters 5 star tipsters that have a decent enough strike rate. From there your bank should steadily increase and you can either raise stakes or back more tipsters.

Having the right size of betting bank is the most important thing. If it's too low you'll struggle with losing runs but when following a profitable tipster you need to bet through them and trust form will turn.

Let me know what you choose to do and if you go Xsquare Brian could do with some winning squares posted in his thread so feel free to share.

Tipsters often tip more than one horse a race so x square thing with tipsters I follow would be tricky, not worth paying for members tips as couldn't make enough each month to make membership costs worthwhile.

Been mostly doing 20p each way or 40p win bets to make sure don't exceed the 20 pound a week budget, in my late teens did much bigger bets but one year lost 432 pound and another year I lost 195 pound.

Last nine years I've made a profit in five years and a loss in four years, was 21pound13 down this year before today's bets.

It is good to learn before you are going to make a decision. Many people do not do it and suffer with loss. When I got the best assignment help I found the ways to stay out of it and resolve all of my problems.
