It just totally depends mate on many things, most notably the accounts history with the bookie.
Naturally first of all they are way more likely to take big bets on things they have massive liquidity on. The champions league final is unlikely to be fixed and they will take so much money on it its irrelevant almost to them what the result is, so you will prob be able to bet bigger on it than some random low ranking snooker match.
All bookies limit winners eventually as well. Usually to pennies. Some have larger/longer tolerance than others but they all protect their bottom line quickly. The only bookie I know of that NEVER limits winners is pinnacle.
Even a big bookie like william hill can start to moan if you want more than a couple hundred quid on some stuff.
