    I've seen something like that in Thailand but the bottles were not on the table there.


    Never sit in the front row of a go-go bar in Bangkok

    It's a disgusting picture. There, I've said it. I had to say it. Sorry. ( I'll go to jail now for being homophobic, I expect .)

    I don't think that 20 bottles of Klosters could prepare me for that.

    Just read that, now i am along way of hitting the £250,000 or indeed exceeding, but the lad don't recall his name who had the blog "£1000 to £300000" in a year or what ever it was, who reached and surpassed that figure within 10 months would have been stung..if it was infact true..

    In the "announcement" it states
    "We hope the information provided will outline why we are making these changes and how they will be implemented in practice"

    Yeah your a bunch of greedy Fu$$ers

    " Bet in more than 1,000 markets"
    So if you do 600 races a year, 100 soccer, 100 tennis, 199 dogs this is 999 you will miss out paying upto 60% PC??

    On twitter there is a tweet calling for the boycott of Betfair on the 18th July, i have no plans that day so it may be a watch, look and learn one, think its a monday so will be at work

    I remember the scenes in the BF forum some years ago when Betfair created the original PC. A lot of so called "respected" forum members predicted that Betfair would collapses soon because all the big hitters who provide liquidity and are the soul of Betfair will go to Betdaq and Betfair will quickly die. Then many people watched carefully the liquidity of Betfair and Betdaq markets to prove the prediction.

    We all know how the story has ended. All these respected forum members were rendered as complete idiots who do not understand the business of Betfair. The PC has nothing changed and Betdaq was never a serious threat to Betfair.

    I do not see the relevance oft he new PC for the majority of users. People who complain and do not qualify wasting simply their time and should use it to improve their betting. 250.000 will be a dream for almost every user and then you have still see how the PC is calculated. In the old system you could avoid to pay 20%.

    Just re read your right, however the goalposts are easily moved when it suits them.
