Latest standings (settled bets in brackets): Bruce £1020 (2), Al £726.67 (5)

MOHAMMED ALI isn’t quite on the ropes yet but he made a stuttering start to his attempt at the tipster contest.

The Blackburn punter posted five bets but his only winner was a £50 single on over 2.5 goals at Volendam v Dordrecht.

His losers included £100 on Dembele to score first in the West Ham v Spurs match so overall his down to £726.67.

Late call-up Bruce Robertson was more conservative with two bets – one winner and one loser. The winner was £100 on both teams to score at West Ham and that earned him a £70 profit that more than covered his loss for backing a draw in the match.

So the early advantage is with Bruce of Edinburgh but it’s another big night with Al staking £500 on another five bets and Bruce so far placing another two.

I’d remind players to post bets each day under the new thread that will be created after midnight. Stakes and Ladbrokes price must be included and if possible potential winnings. Also number your bets if you can as it makes it easier to keep track of them.

We need full names for this contest so anyone whose full name isn’t listed below could you please send it as a comment.

I posted up the rules previously but just to make sure everything is in order and easy to follow I’ve re-capped them below again.

  • All players will start their games with a mythical £1,000 betting fund and you can stake from £50 to £1,000 on any football bet provided Ladbrokes have priced it up.
  • Stakes have to be quoted as do all prices and they have to be Ladbrokes‘ odds. If you’re backing an accumulator please provide the individual odds as well the combined odds. Perms are not allowed. In-running bets are not allowed. And bets must only be on football.
  • You can bet on any football market provided by Ladbrokes but winnings won’t be allocated if no price is quoted. All tips must be posted before the start of the relevant event, for example by 2.59pm for a 3pm kick-off.
  • Each person must over the course of the week-long contest must place a minimum of 20 bets so the £1,000 stake is utilised. This is to prevent a contestant sitting on his pot. Minimum take £50.
  • Single or accumulated odds must be 1-4 or above.
  • You cannot copy exactly the same bet as your opponent. You can however include the same bet in an accumulator that includes at least one different selection. A bet can’t be cancelled once it’s posted unless part or all of the bet is a non-runner, for example a first-scorer pick doesn’t start or one game in an acumulator is postponed.
  • The winner will be the person who has accumulated most winnings, including stakes, by the deadline for the tie. But if one of the players loses his £1,000 pot before the deadline his opponent will be declared the winner even if he hasn’t placed 20 bets. However, if unsettled bets reduce his pot to zero it will be a draw with a tiebreaker required. Winnings can be staked so if your pot increases above £1,000 you have that money to play with. Stakes will be included in winning bets.
  • In the unlikely event of a draw in any of the tipping head to heads there will be a tiebreak contest to decide the winner.
  • All bets must have been settled by the close of the competition, i.e. by 23:59 on the Sunday evening otherwise the bet will be declared void.
  • In the event of any disputes Mr Fixit’s decision will be declare void.

Although there are prizes up for grabs please remember this is also a bit of fun.
