Latest standings (settled bets in brackets): Mark £900 (1), Chris £950 (1)

IT’S game two in the first round of the Ladbrokes head-to-head tipster contest – and both players made losing starts thanks to Liverpool’s shock defeat at home to West Brom.

Mark Talbot of Manchester and Chris Ford of Stirling wasted no time in getting stuck in with Mark punting half his pot and Chris firing up two £50 fourfolds.

Chris put £50 on Liverpool, Real Betis, Chelmsford and Worcester while Mark lumped £100 on a Liverpool/Suarez wincast.

Later Chris stuck a very brave £50 on Braga v Ferreira btts, Hibs v St Johnstone over 1.5 goals, Real Madrid v Man Utd draw and Valencia v PSG draw. This pays a bumper £1554.55 if it comes up and the first two legs are in.

Mark also posted a couple of Champions League bets, putting £250 on both to score at Real Madrid v Man Utd at 4-7 to win £392.50. His second is a £150 double on over 2.5 goals at Madrid and both teams to score at Shakhtar v Dortmund. This pays £381.51.

Only one bet has been posted on day two and it’s a £50 treble on Celtic 7-2, Leicester 2-5 and Brighton draw 9-4. It pays £1023.75 with Ladbrokes.

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.
  • 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 £1000 pot before the deadline his opponent will be declared the winner. 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.
