Latest standings (settled bets in brackets): Chris 65p (16), Cammy £253.33 (14)

IT’S a big day in the tipster contest and by the end of the night Chris Guy may have set Cammy McDonald a target of 66p to win.

Chris of Alexandria has placed two bets today and his first is a loser after he put £100 on Andrew Little to score first for Rangers at Berwick. He was unlucky as Little netted second. And his £60 ew on Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to score first also bombed.

Cammy had two £100 bets on – a Brechin/Man Utd double and a Partick HT/FT single. With Brechin postponed he won £153.33 on Man Utd but Thistle let him down.

is left with 65p sp Cammy will need to beat him using a minimum of 20 bets – so far he has placed 14 with enough in his pot for a maximum of five more. If no player has placed 20 bets and both have a balance there will be a tiebreaker.

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 rack 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.

    Bet 16) Berwick vs Rangers – £100 Andrew Little First Goalscorer @ 5/2. Returns £350

  6. John 5 years ago

    First goal was OG so does that mean Little’s goal stands as the opener?

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      John, with virtually all bookies OGs are void so first scorer rolls on to next scorer.

  7. John 5 years ago

    Sorry chris it said Little on my phone and now it’s Shiels, must have made a mistake, i thought your bet was up

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      John, that was unlucky for Chris but if Huntelaar doesn’t score he’s been quite clever as he has a balance of 65p. Cammy has to beat that and place 20 bets to win. If he doesn’t do 20 bets and has a balance there will be a tiebreaker.

  8. Cammy MacDonald 5 years ago

    What happens if I place the same amount of bets as chris (16) and have more than 65p left?

    Why has this site turned into a slagging, swearing site rather than a forum to share tips and bash the bookies?

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Bruce, that’s what happens when I’ve got a night out. Apologies for some of the comments that were left up but to be fair to the site it’s only one or two people involved.

  24. Danny 5 years ago

  27. Bryan 5 years ago

    I can’t believe Chris went back to his first scorer bets. He was doing well on the win singles.

  28. Chris Guy 5 years ago

    Cammy well done mate. All the best for the competition. Hope you do well. You won fair and square. You were the wiser of us both. All the best. I thought My tip of Huntelaar to score first came up but then I realised it was Matip that scored first…..

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Chris, you were a bit unlucky today but Cammy played it well and did what he had to. Can we say it’s over now even though he has two bets to place. Obviously he can put on two £50 losers now and still be the winner.
