You do realise this also could be voided on a Betfair whim? Possibly after some people with a large red who didn't read the rules decided to lobby Betfair for a void.

The Xmas number one market was voided because In the event of any uncertainty about any result or potential result, Betfair reserves the right to suspend settlement of any market for an unlimited period until the uncertainty can be resolved to the reasonable satisfaction of Betfair. Betfair reserves the right to void any market if the uncertainty regarding settlement cannot be resolved to Betfair's reasonable satisfaction.

However there was no uncertainty, the rules were very clear. They said FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT THE WINNING ARTIST WILL BE SETTLED ON THE EXACT NAMING AS REPORTED BY RADIO 1. TAYLOR SWIFT FT ZAYN MALIK WILL BE TREATED AS A SEPARATE SELECTION TO TAYLOR SWIFT.

The also said We were at a point where we would have had to settle Ed Sheeran+ Ed Sheeran ft Beyoncé as winner. No you werent, your rules cater for that situation.

And lo and behold, a void.

Who knows whether Strictly Come Dancing Xmas Special will be added to a market that also contains Strictly Come Dancing Xmas. Or maybe Strictly Come Dancing also gets added. All on a whim. And then voided on a whim.

Did I say Possibly after some people with a large red who didn't read the rules decided to lobby Betfair for a void. Apologies to all lobbyists. I meant to say they went bleating to Betfair.

Surely and voiding would depend on whether or not Mr T, Mr G and Mr N have phucked up again?

In the same way that the `Voler La Vodette` case rocked the horse racing forum, this case will be remembered and quoted forever; as such, I felt it might be a bit laborious to always have to refer to it as `The Mr T, Mr G, and Mr N ` case.  `Mr G`n`T` seemed OK, but I believe the correct word is `Messrs`, which quite appropriately pronounces as `Messers G`n`T`. Not sure if a little punctuation adds to it? `Messers; G`n`T`, or maybe `Messers? G`n`T!`

Was going to post that ^^^ on the `Christmas No 1` thread, only to find one of the messers has had it deleted!!! Oh dear, boys, what lengths you stoop to! No matter; The Truth Will NOT Be Silenced!!!

I didn't follow that market. What price was Sheeran matched at before it was voided?
Report Froggitt December 10, 2017 8:04 PM GMT

What was favourite at the time it was voided and what price was it?
Report Froggitt December 10, 2017 8:11 PM GMT
Ed ft Beyonce was the fave at the time, probably somewhere around evens

Thanks. So there isn't going to be a market this year?
Report Froggitt December 10, 2017 8:16 PM GMT
The Exchange team have said they will make a decision  in the coming days as to whether they will offer a new market on this.

You wonder why on earth they didnt have the same runners as the Sportsbook, and same rules as the Sportsbook. Cant be that hard to make a market for Xmas number 1. Everyone else seems to manage it.
