  1. I think some sort of minimum bet is a fair rule even if its very small. I would be interested to know if anyone would know of a group or groups of people that maybe make certain issues with books public on social media and the like. It's not something that has a particularly focused agenda in terms of policy. Although I have my personal opinions about minimum bets and what not, I'm generally just interested in putting pressure on major books when they act out. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
  2. Maybe no stats gives the chance for some more value in the market.
  3. I've backed her outright cos her odds might drop bigly if she can win.
  4. I don't think bet365 are going to refund your 0-0 accumulator bets.
  5. Can we hijack this into a future prediction thread for next year? Who's going to exceed/fail expectations? Or maybe it would be better to have another thread for outrights/specials 2017. I'm hoping to find some strange angles before the new year starts.
  6. Just decided to question them about it there out of curiosity, it seems like they're genuinely making it up as they go along. Sun, Sep 4, 7:45:30 Am Gregory: Hi, my name is Gregory. I'm here to help you with your query. Sun, Sep 4, 7:45:53 Am Gregory: Hi, how can I help you? Sun, Sep 4, 7:46:27 am You: Hi Sun, Sep 4, 7:46:55 am You: I was planning on backing Jack Sock +2.5 sets vs Tsonga Sun, Sep 4, 7:47:28 am You: What would the result of the bet be if Sock retires in the third set losing 6-0 6-0 5-0? Sun, Sep 4, 7:50:03 Am Gregory: Is this for Tennis? Well if he retired, the play who did not retire wins/ Sun, Sep 4, 7:50:57 am You: Yes, but the rules do not state what the result of the bet would be Sun, Sep 4, 7:51:43 Am Gregory: It would be a loss. Sun, Sep 4, 7:52:41 am You: If I back tsonga -2.5 sets and Sock retires with the same score what would the result be? Sun, Sep 4, 7:53:06 Am Gregory: It would be a win because Sock retired Sun, Sep 4, 7:54:11 am You: So handicap bets stand regardless of retirements? Sun, Sep 4, 7:55:01 Am Gregory: All bets stand regardless of retirements after the 1st set. Sun, Sep 4, 7:55:24 Am Gregory: Whoever retires is deemed the loser and the opposing player is the winner. Sun, Sep 4, 7:56:51 am You: How could a +2.5 sets bet be declared a loser if the match is not complete? Sun, Sep 4, 7:57:36 am You: What about total games bets? If a player retires in the 2nd set with 15 games played would under 20 games be declared a winner? Sun, Sep 4, 7:58:41 Am Gregory: I will pass you to sports specialist team who may be able to answer this question for you. One moment please. Gregory: has disconnected. Sun, Sep 4, 7:59:53 Am Derek: Hi, my name is Derek. I'm here to help you with your query. Sun, Sep 4, 8:00:23 am You: Hi Derek Sun, Sep 4, 8:00:39 am You: Can you see the previous conversation I was involved in? Sun, Sep 4, 8:00:52 am You: Hopin you can clarify some info for me Sun, Sep 4, 8:01:28 Am Derek: Hi i will help you with that , Can I ask your favourite team's name and the last 4 digits of the active debit/credit card active on your account for security purposes please? Sun, Sep 4, 8:02:18 am You: Sun, Sep 4, 8:02:20 am You: Sun, Sep 4, 8:03:25 Am Derek: Thats not the card i have here , might you have used another card ? Sun, Sep 4, 8:05:01 am You:? Sun, Sep 4, 8:06:13 Am Derek: Thank you , f a player or pairing retires or is disqualified in any match, the player or pairing progressing to the next round (or winning the tournament in the case of a final) will be deemed the winner. This only applies to the Match Betting market, all other markets are void. When this occurs before the conclusion of the first set, all bets not already determined, including match betting, are void. Sun, Sep 4, 8:07:28 am You: I was planning on backing Jack Sock +2.5 sets vs Tsonga What would the result of the bet be if Sock retires in the third set losing 6-0 6-0 5-0? Sun, Sep 4, 8:10:24 Am Derek: Your bet would be a losing bet Sun, Sep 4, 8:10:41 am You: What about total games bets? If a player retires in the 2nd set with 15 games played would under 20 games be declared a winner? Sun, Sep 4, 8:13:13 Am Derek: A tournament must be completed in full for all markets relating to the outcome to stand. This includes: Name The Finalists, To Reach/Not to Reach Xth Round, Big Guns, Stage of Elimination or any tournament specials. For the Stage of elimination and not to reach the Final markets - a player must play at least one point during the tournament for bets to stand. Sun, Sep 4, 8:14:24 am You: Which one of those markets would total games in a match fall under? Sun, Sep 4, 8:16:28 Am Derek: Your bet would be settled as a losing bet as the player going through to the next round would be deemed the winning player Sun, Sep 4, 8:17:37 am You: What about total games bets? If I bet on under 20 games in a match, and either player retires in the 2nd set with 15 games played, would the under 20 games bet be declared a winner? Sun, Sep 4, 8:18:20 Am Derek: Did you place this bet on your account ? Sun, Sep 4, 8:19:06 am You: I am planning on placing it in the Sock Tsonga game but am confused about the rules. Sun, Sep 4, 8:19:12 am You: I think one may retire Sun, Sep 4, 8:20:01 Am Derek: You can check all our rules on site in the help centre - https://support.paddypower.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/73/kw/tennis%20rules/p/6 Sun, Sep 4, 8:20:19 am You: I have checked there but found no answer. Sun, Sep 4, 8:21:00 am You: Can you help me in regards to it? Sun, Sep 4, 8:21:06 Am Derek: I would only really be able to help if i could look at your bet and if the player actually retired Sun, Sep 4, 8:21:36 am You: Why is that? Sun, Sep 4, 8:21:54 Am Derek: So i can actually get someone to check your bet Sun, Sep 4, 8:23:25 am You: The bet is under 42.5 games in the Sock Tsonga game. If there is a retirement in the second set of that game what would be the result of my bet? Sun, Sep 4, 8:25:04 Am Derek: If you did under 42.5 games and a player retried the bet would be a losing bet as tsonga would be giving a 3-0 win and advancing to the next round Sun, Sep 4, 8:26:41 am You: So would over 42.5 games be a winner in this case? Sun, Sep 4, 8:27:15 Am Derek: Yes Sun, Sep 4, 8:28:14 am You: Ok, so if I bet on -2.5 sets for Tsonga and Sock retires in the 5th set what would the result of my bet be? Sun, Sep 4, 8:29:33 Am Derek: Yes Sun, Sep 4, 8:30:22 am You: Ok thanks Sun, Sep 4, 8:31:12 Am Derek: If you ever have any problems or queries in future , please do not hesitate to get in touch through our Help Centre Have a good day. Derek has disconnected.
  7. What site was it? Some are intentionally vague, for example go look at Paddypower for rules on retirements for total games and handicap bets, complete grey area. Probably so they can grade losers and void winners whenever possible
  8. A lot of breaks in the Anne bogdan match at Florianopolis also
  9. Anybody know why how to re-start notifications? Still following tonnes of forums and threads, don't understand it. Just realised I spammed a tonne of them, apologies
  10. I'm going to resubscribe but I was just getting a flood of Asian nonsense.
  11. The spam lately is ridiculous, it makes the feature counter-intuitive. I'm probably just going to delete all my notification prompts because it's unmanageable.
  12. Aldo to win in round 1 @9/1 Boylesports Under 1.5 rounds 13/8 Unibet I agree that the value is on Aldo but think the longer the fight goes on the more it sways in McGregors favour. Dana White has said he thinks the 1st round of this fight will be "one of the sickest first rounds of any fight", he's running the hype machine but it's fair to say it's more likely than not both will come out guns blazing and if that does happen there's every chance Aldo could cause a shock and end this early. He's done it 11 times in his 25 wins, Mcgregor has also had 14 round 1 finishes in his 20 fights, 2 that he lost early in his career. McGregor's odds to finish early are 4/1, it's surprising to me how small that is compared to Aldo's odds so I'm siding with the Brazilian. The fight to end in the first round also appeals, as even though both have had some longer battles in recent years if you bring both fighters records together then you'll find that 56% of their fights have ended in the first round. Many of Aldo's most recent fights have gone past the first round but with both of these guys coming out of their corners throwing bombs the price on the quick result looks like value.
  13. I'm not getting any e-mails that a new topic has been opened in the forums I follow bar a seldom few e-mails. Do I have to follow each topic individually to get an update? It's hard to keep track when new topics are opened every week everywhere. Right now I just have forums followed no topics but I barely ever get an e-mail, have gotten about two or three not sure what I'm doing wrong. edit- Apologies, I've just found I've gotten many forum updates so it must be a problem with my phone
