Arbing only between sharp because of restricted country
« on: December 02, 2015, 02:59:29 PM »

Hey there,

I have read a lot of thread, and it's very useful, strong community.

I'd like to start arbing but my country is very restrictive, and i have to use a broker like AC.

The point is, it's not possible to me using a soft bookie, so risky (no adress abroad), and i dont know anybody abroad... (VPN is not the problem, but the utility bill is)

Can be wrong, but i'll ask (even if i think i know the answer tough). Is it possible arbing only with Sharp ? I assume it's only rare 0.1% one or twice a day ?

Should i give up ? (move out is not possible, family inside).

Thank you very much for reading me, and i apologize for my english.  :)

In my experiance Its possible, but very difficult and frequently goes wrong costing you!

There is a reason sharps are sharp, its because their odds are rarely out of line!

I mentioned this several times in the past. Arbing using only sharps is possible. A number of our members is practicing it. Manual arbing is a little bit tough and you must have the experience to predict small odds movements. Others are using bots doing the hard job for them.

Thank you very much for your replies guys.

Well i'm a little bit desperate since i read so many things about arbing between sharps, then i'll keep to watch, but i guess it's not possible to arb efficiently in my country. :)

I keep looking this forum, very interesting.

This sounds more like trading, not arbing?

You are partially correct here, because if you enable an exchange and an Asian, then what is it? And what if you already have a tiny arb, and you are looking for a better %?

Eryximaque, you didn't mention the name of your country.

Actually i'm from France, where the regulation has totally annihilated Sportsbet, Poker etc...

To describe myself (even if noone cares  ;D) I played Poker on middle stakes pre-regulation, with pretty comfortable incomes. However when regulation comes, it was impossible to me moving out in the UK (Wife, children, job...)

I'm playing on 1xbet (little amount though), since they accept everyone, france included (how long?), but everyone have agreed to say to stay away from them.

Well i have tried to look surebet on sharps (betfair/betdaq/sbobet/matchbook/pinnacle) and that's a lost cause. Never been higher than 0.08%. (but you all already know that, dont you?)  ;D

Perhaps i have misunderstood, or am not understanding something, but if the odds present an arb opportunity, then it is an arb, regardless of which bookmakers or exchanges are involved. If they don't offer an arb, but you think they will move in your favour to create an arb, it is trading??

I see these from time to time, but the need for preparation and skill seems far greater compared to the average methods (the kind of thing I do).

You need lots of capital, lots of experience and lots of confidence. A great setup would also be necessary, the time it takes to go in and out of tabs on one small laptop screen can be the same as a line change.

Andy, if all action is within an exchange then indeed it is trading.

It's almost impossible, you would have to use very good bots. Changes are very quick and you wouldn't "catch" the arb very often.
