You know when you are doing something ok when they restrict you to 0.01p on Premier league Sunday 4pm game between Man Utd v Chelsea!
Or they just send you an email to tell you they don't want your business. Like trophies ;-)

If you were happy to leave yourself exposed in 4 figures on her aa, then well played. But not the way I like to play these markets. There was enough to suggest something was afoot. I rarely position myself with big reds on any of these markets. So I had Tricia matched at big odds already & was not left exposed on her when the gamble began.
Same here JR - you never go bust making a profit no matter how small that may be...

I've just re-read it as well. Interesting to see the changes of opinion as the 'coup' developed. Mine included.
Not got time to read through - out of interest how many people didn't change their opinions?

The interesting thing to note is just how many reduced their liability for fear of losing. It shows just how easy it is to pull off this type of plot when so many seasoned punters are so easily spooked. Although, most will probably be a little wiser next time so it won't be so easy to pull off.
Indeed, that was my central point throughout the thread from memory.

Easy to say 'so what' in hindsight Nigel. You were incredibly dismissive of such suggestions just days ago, yet it looks like some on here were spot on in their thinking.
I was dismissive of the phone voting scam and him being behind it - not surprising at all that he had a little bet on the side.
