This is why the dead heat rule is settled wrongly,
whenever a punter places a bet he stipulates the figure he wishes to place on that animal or animals, but the bookmaker then messes with the amount wagered and reduces the the stipulated figure, for one dead heat by half, £8,000 to win at 1/10, returns £8,800, when the dead heat part comes in then the £8,800 is reduced to £4,400, since you didn't stipulate the SP of the dead heat we must assume that it was odds on, say 4/6
so that would come out about £3,000 add that to the £4,400 and you have an approximate return of £7,300, but if the dead heat allowance is done without messing with the original stipulated figure of £8,000 and the odds are halved because of the dead heat, so that £8,800 goes on to the 4/6 and those ODDS halved making it a 2/5 winner then you would have won
rather than lost, none of these rules are ever challenged and I FEEL SURE that a law court would uphold the bettors logic.

lol TGIB.....was nowhere near as good as you but could string 30-40 breaks ....played jim meadowcroft as a teenager in a pontins comp in wales pwlelli??? (can't spell) he was the resident pro there...the fsc trademark was to smash the reds up by bouncing off the side and back cushions leave them all on figuring noone could hit a big break...i potted 5 reds 4 blacks and had an easyish black.....but to get good position i took eye off pot and it rattled in jaws...he cleared up i swear to god i'd habe come close to doing the same...ahh well he was a good player and was right on the downgrade at the time...the difference netween pro and semi pro is massive as is semi pro to good club player

You mentioned Tony Chappel in your post... knew him well, played about 300 frames against him when he was at his peak, around 1990 iirc, .. I managed to beat him ONCE!
I'm an average club player, and as anyone who has played against pro's will tell you, they play a totally different game.
