Cribb couldn't you just put 10k on Claymores. So you get up either way?
Just move an old post of yours in as the first post?
Surely it wouldn't allow you to bet on your own event.
No wonder I wasn't getting it
Haha i didnt realise the person who made the thread is the actual bookie. Thought they were just another punter.
It does, but you have to pay yourself out, so you always break even, making it pointless.
Yeah, I had to edit the vCash as well though.
Is this only because of the low odds of Porpoises winning?
Nah, that will happen every time, because I'll never run a 100% book. This is how bookies make money; it's always slightly rigged in their favour. I'm still exposed to a Claymores win at the moment though.
What if I put 25k cash on Claymores though? Wouldn't you be screwed?
Only if they won.
Yeah, so he wouldn't win anything
Even at the moment I'd lose money if the Claymores won, because the betting hasn't been in correct proportion for me to greenbook. If only works if the right amounts are put on each team.
Ahh yeah. Good good yeah. Gotcha
So there is a chance the bookie could lose money on an event?
Right now it would appear if the Porpoises win Cribb wins 3k, if they lose he goes down 12ish.
Definitely. Back when we only had $500, I would've gone broke on the heads/tails if heads won
What if they go bankrupt? Get paid out less?
Nah everyone gets paid.
I'm gonna eat tea, then sim this, so if you haven't bet and plan on it, do it soon.
Then I'll post up some Round 1 threads.
You're a champ Cribb, this is some top stuff.
