Sussex in early trouble chasing a fearsome 356 v Hamps sent Hamps to 1.01 then a magnificent recovery in large part down to David Wiese got Sussex down to 1.08 and then Hamps stormed back and look like winning.
Thanks for contributing. I thought the smell of burning Martyr might have been making people stay away .
What a great match that was! For a change I was actually all over the 1.01, not just observing the near miracle from the sidelinew. Sensibly I scaled out and kept a good green on both outcomes and caught a bit of the 1.1 on Sussex before that cricial wicket.
Think I've done OK out of the Royal London Cup on balance, all from my standard play of laying ultra-low odds and trading some out on rises or running free bets. Only exception was laying the 1.3 in size yesterday when the rain break brought Yorks, who were miles behind yet ahead of the rate, artificially short due to D/L and made the match odds trade like the weather market (CMM).
(As suggested by Jucel) here's the game link to today's thrilling entertainment:-
I'm not sure about the streaming delay. It's a processing and buffering thing I would have thought, which probably gets worse as the internet gets more and more crammed full of commercial sh!t. Only my broadcast TV-radio feed is close to being up with the action. I can't see why a stream would be deliberately delayed further than the already existing delay. But it's a question worth asking on the Beeb twitter feed maybe (if possible)?

Also depends if you have the mentality for lots and lots of losses in a row before you hit a jackpot
I compare it to a Poker player min-betting suited connectors or set-mining with a low pair. Most times you miss the flop and fold, sometimes you get a modest piece and occasionally you hit hard against another strong hand. The advantage here though is you don't have to commit more money - you're only ever risking the green resulting fro your initial stake. In a sense Poker is a game about winning the blinds as with no blinds (and no ante) there would be no reason to bet. So winning and losing lots of small bets is the norm, you just remember the occasional big wins more.
I used to work on commission for years - the majority of appointments were a no-deal, and most that did paid only a minimum flat fee or a small commission basically for filling out the paperwork, and these would be your bread and butter to cover petrol, phone calls etc, then once or twice a month you'd pull off one of those big deals netting £500+ or maybe even a grand or more. It's a precarious living if you only do a few appointments a month, but if you keep busy you can do well on average. Combined with Test match betting it was a good stage in my life.

I should add that low-odds Pak runs (which I stupidly didn't even think to lay as a hedge) that traded in meaningful size and were Gubbed were as follows:- 90 1.01 100 1.01110 1.02120 1.07130 1.04150 1.08espncricinfo.com/series/18664/game/1152841
