Latest standings (settled bets in brackets): Mark £1321.30 (6), Chris £750 (6)

IT was a big night in the tipster contest with Mark Talbot notching four winners and Chris Ford making it five losers and one returned stake from six attempts.

Mark of Manchester won £392.50 for his £250 both teams to score single on Real Madrid v Man United. He also had a £50 double on both to score at Crewe and Real to win a further £135.27 and £50 on over 2.5 goals at Crewe and both to score at Real to add £148.23.

His fourth win of £145.80 came thanks to both to score at Valencia v PSG and the Real match.

Chris had his £200 refunded on Man United draw no bet but is still to pick a winner.

So after three days of competition and six bets apiece Mark has built up a healthy lead of £576.30.

Chris posted four bets last night but has asked to cancel them. I’ve allowed it this time – and Mark has okayed it – but in future only bets that are void or partly void can be cancelled.

Instead of four bets Chris is all in with his £750 on Bayern Munich at 1-3 with Ladbrokes to beat Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga tomorrow.

Mark has staked £750 on five Europa League bets, mainly both teams to score and over 1.5 goals – so he could have a huge lead by the end of the night or could be behind.

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 £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.

    …….kicking myself over doubting PSG away at Valencia. But at the end of the day the best or luckiest man will win so good luck to Mark.

    And tbh I’v struggled in this competition as I’m more of a lump big on low risk single bets kind of betting man. But as you can’t have anything less than 1/4 that’s out the window. I know some people don’t believe in risking £7k to win £2k but I believe if the risk is lower than 20% then it’s worth it. I would have liked to sit everyday lumping on over 1.5 goals on games but the odds don’t comply to rules.

    Anyways it’s do or die tomorrow for me and best of luck to mark.

      Chris, you’ll get 1-4 or better on most games over 1.5 goals so you could have found one and put your whole pot on it at the start.

  6. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    Mr fix it can bets be altered? I’ve had a change of heart on something, aslong as the games not started can I change my bets?

      Chris, I’ll let you do it this once and only because Mark has said he has no objections. We didn’t specify in the rules that you couldn’t change before a bet has started but we will do now. One problem is adminitering this and the other, and I’m not accusing you of this, is copying an opponent to a certain extent. When you put up the change be clear to say what bet has been cancelled.

    Sorry didn’t mean to send last post twice. Just one bet 11 to stand. Thanks.

  10. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    Thanks mark, aslong as you have no complaints mate. I didn’t think it would be a problem as you can void a bet in a bookmakers if it hasn’t started.

    Anyway……people may call me stupid here as I know Wolfsburg are playing well just now and recently strengthened their squad in the transfer window, but to me it feels like a good bet which would put me back on track. So here it is….

      Chris, as I said I’ll do it this time but not again. Only changes that can be made are if games are off or a first-scorer pick for example doesn’t start.

  11. Chris Ford 5 years ago

    Not trying to copy mark Paul, merely trying to get back on track with the competition, and if it comes in I’m sure it’ll make the weekend more interesting for everyone watching.

    Thanks for the good sportsmanship mark and good luck with all your bets mate.
