Last year I beat my biggest ever mistake.I was setting up the Federer Berdych semi final market and went to lay them both at 1.01 in preparation for when the price got there the next day.I backed both for 111k instead of laying.Virtually no other bets in the market, no problem with the request from Betfair (how can you back both players in a two runner market at 1.01 simultaneously?)I got the lot done at 1.05 average on Federer, about 6k the other side on Berdych.SP on Federer was 1.86 so an instant 55k loss in equity.I did actually ask Betfair to void. They refused. I then asked them to ask the other pro to agree to void. He refused.I would like to think that in similar circumstances I would void.
Kind of begs the question, can you claim the normal bookies get out of "palpable error"?
