Army, you are talking about people having fast pics or being at the event and beating the delay. This trick a few years ago allowed people to bet without any bet delay. When it was discovered Betfair had to rewrite the coding on their bet matching system to prevent it happening.

GB no.
I haven`t a clue who will win, so I`ve taken the contrarian route. You could lay Lauren, Abz and Charlotte quite easily to +90% in the last day or two. 9/1 the field? Yes thank you. Lauren`s hit her ceiling, Abz is like a horse that has to get his head in front exactly on the line but who has mistaken the furlong pole for the winning line, and Charlotte, well, enough said.

fll
sounds like we had a similarly mis-spent youth. I well remember hitching home from school if I had failed to convince the ticket man that he  should let me on as I had done my dinner money and bfh on yet another 33/1 donkey. `But, Mister, my Mum will be so worried if I`m late home` Cue tears...

I solved most of my problems by doing the obvious thing, becoming an indie. Only when I discovered Specials did I finally stop losing though.

Report Jack Bauer '24' September 10, 2013 1:26 AM BST
It was Betfair's fault. It was to do with your account balance, if you put your whole account balance on an unmatched bet you then submit a bet as soon as a team scores and the system would say you don't have enough funds, you then immediately cancel the unmatched bet so your funds return to your account and your bet on the match would go through without any bet delay. It was a long time ago now.

I see what GS means about Lauren changing when she feels the need. Very sharp in the bitchfest, regresses to a child when she feels like it. Claims just not to have heard the convo about her parents visiting, despite sitting in it
Report hemsby September 10, 2013 9:48 AM BST
Just caught up with the vids on-line .Interesting they posted the chat between Mario,Carol and GS where they are questioning Lauren's behavior and asking whether she is playing the game.Will they show this tonight,and if so how will they edit it? 3 people b1tching or the truth revealed?

Of course she's a BB expert and she's played the game beautifully (the best performance I can remember in my time of watching these shows).Will TPTB allow her to win,or will they pull the rug from underneath her?

Final thought from watching those clips was what a decent fellow Louie is Shocked .In his moments when the mask slips and he explains how its just "work" he comes across as possibly the most "normal" person in there.Won't win of course,but he's now my favourite HM Blush
