How Kevin clawed back £40,000 from Betfair

By on January 25, 2020

A lot of punters really, really struggle to make a long term profit from betting.

The stat we’ve all heard is that just 2% make a long term profit.

But for some it’s even worse.

Some punters even go into massive debt chasing the dream.

One such punter was Kevin Laverick.

In just over four years he lost £40,000 on Betfair.

Here’s the story:

Kevin was an amateur footballer for twenty-five years. And after that he spent nearly a decade as a trainer and manager.

It’s fair to say football was in his blood and he had a vast knowledge of the sport.

So when Betfair came into being Kevin couldn’t believe his luck.

He had just taken redundancy from his job as a chartered surveyor and so he had time to study the stats and start making some serious money using the new betting exchange.

Or so he thought!

Four years later and Betfair was indeed a great hit – just not in the way he had hoped.

The hit had been to his bank account.

The total amount he lost in those four years was £40,000.


I genuinely can’t imagine how that must have felt.

I’ve been a couple of grand in the hole before through betting but £40,000?

That would genuinely make me depressed.

Anyway, needless to say it took a heavy toll on Kevin too and he was miserable.

So what did he do?

He took the sensible option and realised he needed to take a break – not knowing if he would ever go back to Betfair.

During his self-imposed exile he decided to educate himself.

And he spent his time learning about capitalisation, value, bank management, mindset, staking, recording results, emotion and – most important of all – being able to accept losers and winners with the same humility.

All in all he took a year off from Betfair.

And to cut a long story short, his dedication to putting into place what he had learned really paid off.

In just two years of using this new approach he had regained all of his losses.

And he now makes his living as a professional football trader on Betfair.

What a turnaround. It just goes to show what dedication and discipline can do.

But the story doesn’t end there…

Kevin didn’t want what happened to him to happen to other Betfair enthusiasts.

And so, together with Steve Brown, Kevin has created the number one community for football trading online.

They have helped thousands of punters turn Betfair into their own personal cash machine.

And many of them are now full-time traders themselves.

Anyway if this is something you’d like for yourself, a quick disclaimer:

1. I can’t guarantee it’ll work for you. I don’t know how disciplined you are or whether you’ll put the effort in.

2. I haven’t used it myself (it was voted the number one service of 2019 by readers of this newsletter which is why I’m sharing it with you).

(I believe in giving you full disclosure).

That said, if you really want 2020 to be the most profitable year you’ve ever had then I genuinely think you should check out Goal Profits.
