  • yet again, betfair ruine my life

    lost £1900 yesterday when betfair suspended the argentina v paraguay game 4 mins early and didnt unsuspend it until after 2 goals was scored...
    got the cobblers about its not there fault etc etc, i watched the game via another stream perfectly, and have now asked betfair to prove there was a problem.

    can you really make money with this companay...

    Don't open trades with a liability bigger than you are prepared to lose...
    If you want more luck... Take more chances!

          I just wonder how did you even dare to play that game when there was only 35k matched before the game begins. And with 1.9k. Man think before start trading...Usually I just avoid such a low liquidity games. As I did yesteday as well...

              In the matter of fact the should be long gone. They opened back the market around 35-40 mins after start. But I also think it was opened for a while when it was 1-1 couldn't you close it then? I am not sure for that excuse me if I am wrong. But I think it was open...

                Taken from soccer rules......

                Predict the result of this match. At kick off unmatched bets will be cancelled and the market turned in play.

                I am not soccer trader......wasn't involved in this market, just feel sorry for traders losing their money due to Betfair NOT doing their job....

                was your market suspended 4 mins BEFORE scheduled kick-off ?

                  Unlucky, what markets did you play? When the market reopened it was 1-1 so probably could have recovered some unless you were playing the CS markets, even then you had 4 minutes to try and balance with the bookies.

                  Sadly it's always a risk as soon as we place a bet on betfair your fate is in their incompetent hands.

                    Hes saying scored 2 goals. Maybe he was playing in u/o 2.5 market. Sad.

                      That is shit luck mate, happened to me plenty of times (well, similar scenarios).. Very rarely, do they come in in your favour. Feeling for you bud....
                      Times like this we need to evaluate our money management and make sure we aren't going in too hard to what we can afford, because we are always open for something to go wrong and must be prepared to recover from it WHEN it happens.

                        One advantage of trading football in-game is that you know that one goal could seriously **** you up so you use a size appropriate to such an event.

                              And again before at the Evian-Metz (France Ligue 2) in the 2nd half.
