Can you turn Losers into Winners?
The betting world in the UK has undergone a revolution in recent months with the advent of Internet sites called "betting exchanges" that offer an alternative to the traditional bookmaker.
For the first time, YOU can take the role of the bookie and offer your own odds against other punters.
Instead of cursing the luck of the bookmaker when the favourite comes in second or third you can smile knowingly and collect the punters' money into your bank as bookies have from you in the past.
Now of course there is a down side too.
If the horse you have "layed" wins then you will have to pay out to the winning punter.
Depending on the odds you have offered you may have to pay out a sum rather larger than your stake.
It is obvious that if you are going to start laying bets against horses to win then you need to have a good method for assessing which are the most likely to lose whilst still being at prices which keep your risks low.
This is where a new book from professional gambler Raj Patel comes in.
