    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?
  3. Speirz DG Speirs

    Surely it wouldn't allow you to bet on your own event.

    S'all good!

    No wonder I wasn't getting it :p
  5. El Nino J Torres

    Haha i didnt realise the person who made the thread is the actual bookie. Thought they were just another punter.
  6. Cribbage RG Cribb

    It does, but you have to pay yourself out, so you always break even, making it pointless.
  7. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah, I had to edit the vCash as well though.
  8. Gazza GJ Weaver

    Is this only because of the low odds of Porpoises winning?
  9. Cribbage RG Cribb

    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.
  10. Gazza GJ Weaver

    What if I put 25k cash on Claymores though? Wouldn't you be screwed?
  11. Kegdrinker LA Pilgrim

    Only if they won. :p
  12. Gazza GJ Weaver

    Yeah, so he wouldn't win anything
  13. Cribbage RG Cribb

    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.
  14. Gazza GJ Weaver

    Ahh yeah. Good good yeah. Gotcha
  15. Athlai JJD Heads

    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 :laugh:
  17. Athlai JJD Heads

    What if they go bankrupt? Get paid out less?
  18. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Nah everyone gets paid.
  19. Cribbage RG Cribb

    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.
