Latest standings (settled bets in brackets): Bruce £1321.33 (5), Al £576.67 (10)

IT was another good day for Bruce Robertson as he stormed ahead in the tipster contest.

The Edinburgh punter posted three bets and two were winners. He had a £100 treble on Bolton, over 2.5 goals at Everton and both teams to score in El Clasico. I deducted £50 for his losing bet on Nikica Jelavic but forgot to mention it.

His first win returned £337.04 and he added £234.29 for a £120 single on both to score between Stirling v Rangers.

Opponent Mohammed Ali of Blackburn put up five bets but his only winner was a £100 single on Andy Little to score first for Rangers. That bet saved the day and he still has £576.67 to play with.

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.

    Al, if you want maybe try £50 ew on Oscar First Goalscorer for Chelsea @ 9/1. That’s a great price he is only 6/1 with the likes of William Hill. You will get 3/1 a place too. Bet cost £100, if he scores first bet returns £700, if he scores 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th bet returns £200. Good luck.

      Craig, it was done in the first or second game, can’t remember by who. No problem with £25 each way bets.

  5. Chris Guy 5 years ago

    £25 ew is fine, bet is still £50

  6. Craig alves 5 years ago

      Sorry Bruce but have you seen Torres recently?? He is pure pish!!!!

      • Bruce 5 years ago

        I totally agree Muzza but Boro away ideal opportunity to change that
        No other recognised strikers starting so thought 4/1 reasonable odds/bet
