Click here to get the full scoreboards of the Eurovision 2011 first semi-final, second semi-final and final.
The two semi-finals contain almost as many shocks as the final. The first one was won by Greece, with our 10-1 each-way tip Finland just managing third place. The second one was won by Sweden, with Denmark second and Bosnia only fifth.
I will do a full post-mortem early next week, but tonight’s results, some very surprising, some less so, are a reminder that you never know what to expect with Eurovision.
Yet to tot up my accounts properly, I ended up with another excellent profit, which by rough calculations is a little bit more than last year’s, in large part thanks once again to the Top 10 final market, with big wins on Greece and ‘laying’ Hungary.
This is another reminder that remaining ultra-selective about one’s bets, sticking to those things you feel sure about, and looking beyond the outright win market, are really important.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed the evening and got lucky. What were your biggest wins or losses? What lessons did you learn for next year? Let us know in the comments box below.
See you in Baku next year!
