The Gamblers and the Lobsters 2019-20

We are going to attempt to run this popular competition for another season. I will be acting as Master Vendy's new and enthusiastic apprentice, but be prepared for operational hiccups. A reminder of some of the rules that we may apply:

Everyone starts with 200

Max bet 20%; final round 50%

Min bet 5

No bet = AutoBet (5 on the shortest priced option)

5 AutoBets per person then 5% penalty

Those 5% penalties redistributed to bottom gamblers

Winner selects following week's games (please!!)

Late entry fee - 5 per week

Starts next Saturday, 10th August

Typical Premiership elitism.

misosoup100 - 02 Aug 2019 16:12:56 (#3 of 273)

Who do we address complaints to?

MadamGeorge - 02 Aug 2019 21:40:25 (#4 of 273)

I can help you there, write to Stickem @ Upyourars. Glad to help.

phantlers - 02 Aug 2019 23:18:28 (#5 of 273)

Some sort of deadline for the next week's odds might merit consideration.

nac1001 - 03 Aug 2019 06:36:46 (#6 of 273)

If last week's winner hasn’t put them up by the end of Wednesday (UK time) anybody can step in?

Bastard mods closed the old thread at 1995 posts. Bastards.

You Are Not Alone, Vendor. Some Might Say I Believe This Is How We Do It.

This post is brought to you by song titles from the year 1995. Just remember - I’ll Be There For You.

I guess we should close this thread now that there's a new one.

Please remember, if you are doing multiple bets to include the total odds of your bet. This is done by just multiplying the individual odds of each part of your bet.
