Just had a nightmare of a session, suffered a powercut which also affected the local telephone exchange and the closest mobile phone mast. So while my pc router etc. carried on with the UPS kicking in I was still not able to close out of a trade as no internet and no phone, and of course the horse went on to win (Mister Chow) with only the lay being matched :x

Doesn't help if the mast goes down too. :cry:

We've all had one like that at sometime dmbusa, it's out of the way now, you've earned your stripes.
A complete connection loss, an open position that side at that time, and a 13/2 shot coming in really shouldn't happen again in a lifetime. I know it feels crap but it'll fade, have a few days off.

In a strange way it has highlighted the reason for not letting a trade go in play
