Following on from another recent question i posted;

If you were/are a bookie, why would you want to go to a race course everyday, when you can sit at home in the warm, and can use Betfair?

Race course bookie's have travel costs, licence fees and employee costs.

Those who sit at home, have nothing more than an internet connection!

A bookie can Add 20% to their book.
The premium charge takes 20% of your overall profit.

Bookies are also renowned for their luck with the ladies after the last

To make money as a bookmaker you need price-insensitive customers.

To make money on Betfair you need n price-average beating methodology.

The two have little in common, imho.

The human body hasn't evolved to sit down all day long. We are also a social breed.

By your theory why be a bookie at all, fain a bad back and live off the social if you want to sit in all day. Then you don't even have to raise your fingers to press keyboard buttons.
