Hello guys (and girls perhaps)
Last night I layed a few odds on the Irapuato – UANL Tigres match (Mexico Copa MX) on BetFair.
Irapuato scored pretty quickly (2nd minute) and odds on BetFair for the lay stayed very high, so I layed on it and backed it on one or two other bookies. After this, I noticed that BetFair got the starting date wrong, so it looked like the match was about to start in an hour while it was already started.
I went to bed and this morning I noticed that the bets got voided, and this was because BetFair I have a few questions:
1. Can they just void bets on the exchange market? Isn’t it the players own responsibility to check the match before he makes the bets?
2. Like I said, I lost money on the other bookies + I didn’t make the profits on BetFair. Can I persuade BetFair to compensate me some way (with free bets or something)?
3. If I contact them, can I say that I was arbing this bet? I don’t know what BetFairs position is on arbing?
4. Can I use the power of Arbusers forum? Maybe that is more convincing?
Thanks for the help guys!
