Hello!

I have a question. If I sit an a stadium watching a football game live, a goal is scored and I immediately make a bet, would this work ?

First it depend of bookmaker and what is their pending time but its very hard,it ll maybe work with some smaller league where you cant make big bet and maybe you can do it once or twice but you ll get limited very fast.
Second you cant take laptop on the stadium(if you bet with your mobile maybe it can work).
Once i send my friend on futsal game and we was on mobile line all the time and it worked for first bet(we earned about 120€ but our second bet was voided and my account was limited to one euro)-it was marathonbet so i decide that it dont have any sense for future betting.
Try it for yourself and let us know if it work:)

Asians have a huge pending time, no way it will work. Your luck would be only with some sleepy European bookies. If you try it, I suggest targeting other than soccer sports.

Asian books even if they accept your bet and there ll be goal in next 5-10 sec can cancel our bet even if its loosing one,for betfair i dont know i never tried it there.
If you want to bet like that try other sports than football,its too difficult because on football game is maybe 1-2 goals and you need to be prepared for such bet all the time but if you bet tennis,volleyball or basketball its different situation because there is many points every 5-10sec and if you know when to bet you can have a good edge and great value bets or arbing situation.

Betfair will normally cancel these bets, even if they are initially accepted,  BUT this won't happen on unmanaged markets.

I know it,i had about 30 accounts with them so i know that,in this case it was because it was late bet(my bet was canceled) and after that my account was limited.

As a live match reporter myself, let me tell you that if you plan to bet at Asian bookmakers, it will depend a lot on the current situation of the game. If the MR says to match operator that the situation is "Safe", your bet will most likely be accepted quickly. If the command is "Danger", it will take the next "Safe" command for your bet to go through.
You might go to a small game and be lucky to find a sleepy match reporter but there might be more than one and Asian bookmakers try to get the live events from as many sources as possible, not just one.
You might want to try going to tennis games and trade from the side court. Many people do it, the Betfair odds usually react much faster than Bet365 live scores, TV coverage (there is even 5-second delay for in-play bets on Betfair).

Also, what you intend to do is not trading. That is a much different thing.

Buddha do you work only on football games or some other sport also?
Can you tell us from what country you are and do you know is there much people like you working same job because when i see that bet365 or marathon have 3.Bulgarian league for live betting or some ITF tennis tournament and there is 6-7 matches i always wonder how its working?

I may be new but of course not. Betfair designed their systems against this already. I think they close bets few minutes before. Or hours perhaps.
