ADVANCED DOBBING?

Now that you're familiar with simple DOBBING the next step is to try out different strategies which allow you to vary the risk/reward scenario.

DOUBLE DOBBING?

Or DDOB as it's sometime abbreviated, allows you to vary your In Running Lays to win double your stake rather then just your stake. Along with the bigger reward comes bigger risk. Here's how it works.

Just as with the straight DOB our first bet is the BACK bet which is placed before the race begins, and
TWO LAY bets which are usually matched In Running but can be matched pre-race if the selection is VERY heavily supported.

This is how it works: - where you back a runner at say 12.0 for 10 pre-race.
You then lay it back IR at half the price (6.0) for the same stake 10,
then a second lay at half again, (3.0) this time for double the stake 20.

Now, if none of the lays are matched you lose your stake
If only the first lay (6.0) is matched then you get your 10 back and win or lose nothing irrespective of the result.
If the second lay (3.0) is also matched then you'll win 20 (double your stake) no matter what the result.
(i.e. 10 back at 12.0 - potential profit 110,
Lay at 6.0 for 10 gives a potential loss of 50, and the
Lay at 3.0 for 20 gives another potential loss of 40).
(i.e. If it loses you lose your 10 stake but get 30 for your Lays - 20 profit
but if it wins you'll get 110 for the win bet but lose 90 (50 + 40) for the lays giving again 20 profit)

This only works for runners which are priced at 4.1 or greater.
Back at 20 for 10 - Lay at 10.0 for 10, and at 5.0 for 20 - No profit/loss if it just DOBS but 20 profit if both lays are matched - i.e. DOUBLE DOB
Back at 9.6 for 20 - Lay at 4.8 for 20, and at 2.4 for 40 - No profit/loss if it just DOBS but 40 profit if it DOUBLE DOBS
Back at 50 for 5 - Lay at 25.0 for 5, and at 12.5 for 10 - No profit/loss if it just DOBS but 10 profit if it DOUBLE DOBS etc.....

SPLIT DOBBING?

This time the aim is to win more if your selection wins but still make a profit if it doesn't win but does trade low IR.
It's sometime referred to as "leaving a little on the nose".

Just as with the straight DOB our first bet is the BACK bet which is placed before the race begins, and
TWO LAY bet which are usually matched In Running but can be matched pre-race if the selection is VERY heavily supported.

This is how it works: - where you back a runner at say 12.0 for 10 pre-race.
You then lay it back IR at half the price (6.0) for the same stake 10, then at half again, 3.0 this time for the stake 10.
So if the 6.0 lay is matched IR then you get your 10 and win or lose nothing irrespective of the result.
If the second lay at 3.0 is also matched then you'll win 10 (double your stake) if you selections loses but
if it wins you'll WIN 40 for your 10 stake.
(i.e. 10 back at 12.0 - potential profit 110,
Lay at 6.0 for 10 gives a potential loss of 50, and the
Lay at 3.0 for 10 gives another potential loss of 20).
If it loses you'll win 10 - if it wins you'll get the 110 less the 70 (50+20) giving a profit of 40 for your 10 risked.

This only works for runners which are priced at 4.1 or greater.
