This maybe a bit of a rambling post put sometimes it’s good to get things “down on paper” and there is a purpose to it. November has been a weird up and down month betting wise and quite a stressful one on the personal front. As I live alone I have spent most of the time on my own bar meeting people whilst out walking and virtual zoom meetings with friends and chatting to people on the phone, it makes this occupation a very difficult one.

This is a very short piece about this weeks Sunshine Tour event the Times Square Casino Challenge where Aubrey Beckley (yup who?) could be worth a few quid e/w at a massive four figure price. Beckley won the North Gauteng Open amateur event here in 2017 beating the likes of Higgo by seven shots and Schaper by ten. He played here in the Big Easy tour event last year finishing 6th. That was one of his better results in an otherwise uninspiring professional career but he obvious
