He also appears to have never been to the UK, but I'm not letting that spoil the fun.

Im sorry lori you have misunderstood me, i am trying to help you. You shouldnt do it its bad business for youself and the book involved. All it will do is reduce your ability to get a bet, that could be much more ev than a small arb.

as for betfair its destroying punting on a number major sports, for one tennis.

And if you lived in the UK youd know we're in the middle of a major court case that is centered around people using betfair to fix horse races, that im sure when is settled will have some ramifications for the industry, in the UK.

And its a fact that im getting even money on wongs. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

It depends on the book. Some books move their lines aggressively so that one max bet will eliminate the opportunity. Other books will continue to hang stale lines even after several max bets. These books are the real targets.

lori i think you misunderstood me I've been arbing a lot. I never see these mysterious two day long arbs most of mine last seconds not minutes. I saw one boxing arb last two days this summer other then that I haven't seen much.

I have a lot of outs, real-time odds service, an arb alert service, the whole thing. I'm not a veteran at this but most of what I see goes very fast.

Also, a warning to all, just ignore anything at 5dimes over 2-3% or so I've had a few bets canceled lately they have routinely been posting lines backwards [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

If you're arbing college football halftimes or something then yes I'd agree. Otherwise you're not looking hard enough and the thread would likely help you.

Example from the past (LAD to win division)

Edit: That was held for at least 12 hours looking at those time stamps, and I remember it was at least another day on top, but I have no proof of that.

Yes, at BetPOP. They advertise highest teaser and parlay rates in the industry. Dunno if it's true though, but I am getting even money.

Interesting. I recognize I have a lot to learn at this. I think IRC would be awesome. Even though I remain skeptical that sharing arbs of any significance is pretty hard i'd love to learn from more experienced people and I'm more then willing to share what i can.

Arbs have a risk. The line could move before you get the second side down :P
