The Sportsman - the sports betting newspaper set up last March - has today shut down.
This is particularly disappointing for me as I was their snooker correspondent.
I was in the first issue and I was in what proved to be the last issue. If I say so myself, I got off to a blinding start by tipping James Wattana to beat Ronnie O'Sullivan in the China Open in the very first edition.
In fact, the whole of that tournament was successful for me but tipping, just like punting itself, is about swings and roundabouts and I didn't enjoy much success at the World Championship (tipping John Higgins to win the title; Michael Holt to reach the quarter-finals).
My last two tips? Ding Jun Hui to beat Jimmy White and Stephen Hendry to beat Steve Davis in tonight's Premier League.
The results? 5-1 to Jimmy and 5-1 to Steve.
Perhaps this is a good time to bow out.
