Is there such a thing now as bookmaking, the corporate's seem to be sheep. if something moves on Betfair they adjust their price seemingly without taking a bet. Even when theres small amounts traded. There all flashing up with odds boosts ect yet if you win a little they restrict your bets or remove the service from your account. Modern punters were born in the wrong era. In days of old bookmakers took you on. These companies are weak as water. Angry
I hear these massive bets announced on the radio and fear they may not even exist when one of these these blokes have restricted my bets to $50 after winning a few grand. Tried to show them i had lost more than that in the last few months and they wont listen. Gutless.

I don't really have that much trouble in believing in these "whale" bets. A fixed odds betting provider's most cherished possession is a stable of big-betting losers. And they are more than happy to have others follow the lead given by them. You can be pretty sure these people are a long way down the mine before being allowed to bet big. They are well established as no risk to the bookie.
