Why bookies ban/limit arbers
« on: February 11, 2017, 11:18:44 AM »

It doesn't seem logical, I made 20+ bets with 1xbet and marathon I lost more than $2000+ dollars.
So why limit me, when I'm losing money.

You would think the opposite, starting too learn real fast, that if you take away all the (red tape bookmakers, clones) there are actually only about a dozen good ones.
Is it because I'm making money on the other side, and the bookmakers are sooo greedy that they want everyone to lose.

Even if you're losing short term you will win long term from them by taking mostly value bets, so they cut their losses short by limiting you.

Arbers disrupt the bookmaker risk model , so don't want arbers even if they get some money out of them

I guess the only way is to take the short odds sometimes.  i.e when you notice the odds long, you bet the other side.
Or take some winnings now, and put the shorts into multis.

Indeed. The only reason for a book to restrict players is their FUTURE winning probabilities. Whether you arb, value bet or sharper by yourself, your win/loss will always reveal you by time. But after 20 bets it's not relevant yet (results are mostly random, a small edge have little effect on them), and books know that.
