Re: English Football 2015-16

on a side note, i did a 3 match tennis bet 150 to win 305, after i put it on i could cash out 147 before it started...

Novak wins the first game but now i can only cash out 130, how does that work?

Re: English Football 2015-16

I think the logic behind it is that your bet already started so cashing out costs more.

Should we not rename thread English Football 2016-17 as they happen in the 16th and 17th years ?

1. you cant cash out the effective vig/rake
2. line can change even when he wins a game

No, he always played just behind whoever our lone striker was.

Re: English Football 2015-16

on further inspection it looks like stars are doing some bollocks phase tournament where the first one ends after x time and you get put into another or something, and then you compete for actual cash i dunno. anyway cina won 400 rather than 120000 but nevertheless should contribute towards the mc1 academicals fund.

quick PSA, the cashout thing was pioneered by Betfair as a means of encouraging more volume (their cashout function simply lays off the requisite amount of your outstanding bet at the best available market odds) but has since become so popular that most online bookies now offer a cashout option. However, most bookies don't have a LAY option so they're not offering the same thing; they're just offering to buy out some of their own liabilities at a discount price, safe in the knowledge that most punters are ****ing idiots and won't realise they're getting ripped off.

Cliffs: rarely, if ever, avail yourself of the cashout option from a traditional bookie as you'll almost always get better value laying off on exchange.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Delph sidelined with another hamstring injury (Warning: not interesting, but a slow day here so might as well)

Quote:
Delph hit the turf just 9-seconds into Englands’ Euro qualifying match against Switzerland at Wembley "He pulled his hamstring. No, [Delph was] not [a concern] at all. He's trained every session, felt good, played in San Marino," said Roy Hodgson post-match. "It was just that burst, that acceleration. He felt it's a definite pull. How serious, a scan will have to show us." Delph is yet to start a PL game for City since his summer move from Aston Villa after suffering a similar problem during a pre-season friendly match in Melbourne, AUS [vs Real Madrid] an injury which kept the midfielder sidelined for a month. Delph joins Bacary Sagna in the treatment room after the French full-back suffered an ankle problem on Monday – both players are being assessed.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Carrick is a doubt for this weekend after pulling out of the England squad, hopefully we line up with:

-----------DDG
Darmian-Mike-Blind-Shaw
-----Schnei--Schwei
Mata---Herrera--Memphis
--------Rooney

I'd be willing to explore anything to get Rooney a little further down the field.

No. I ended phase 1 of a wcoop with 120k chips and the guy thought i won $120k.

I barely play poker, let alone tournaments and to my knowledge I did not win $120k and am still poor but i'll still happily chip in a forum league club

I'm fairly sure that it won't be long until Rooney is playing as a 10 with Martial up top but seriously doubt LVG puts Martial straight in.
