As I write this the game still has a few minutes to go but my feeling that this could be a 4 goal game to Spain was a good call. That said, all the way through it I was still wondering if I should have traded it but it would have been a nervous bit of trading even for me because of the seemingly easy and early collapse of Turkey when the Spanish went 2 up.
In the second half when Spain went 3 up I really thought then that it was going to turn into a slaughter but, as so often is the case, with 3 goals under their belt they took the foot off the gas completely. Turkey were dreadful and even though in the end I could probably have taken a profit from this or at least got out of any real trouble, I’m glad I left it alone.
It did remind me to bring up the subject of cash-out. Sometimes in a game that does cause you concern you can often go for a cash-out option that either minimises a loss across the board or even allows for a small profit so do watch for that.
