I sympathise Munk. I also could not find a decent bet at Canbet when I had to bet through 2x winnings of £210 before withdrawing.
I tried betting the first £210 on four 'certainties' without laying at all (!) and then laying the second £210. This was half following Andy's advice to bet on a certainty and lay just the stake amount.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea won me £63, but Man U lost me £50, so I gained £13 on the first bet through.
Laying the second £210 lost £10.50.
With the difficulty of finding a decent bet at Canbet, I would have preferred to have lost the £30 free bet at Canbet, and so have £37 at Betfair instead of £210 in Canbet.
I was lucky to finish up (just) with £212.50 after betting through the £210 twice, and certainly do not recommend betting on certainties without laying!
Gah, reading your post too late. I dropped £430 on England to win at 1.01 hoping they'd score quickly. They're making such a meal of their game it's untrue, price is now drifting out from 1.03/4 to 1.05/6 now... gah. Someone score please! Doesn't inspire confidence in England at all.
Blaady hell ... they scored eventually just after half time, managed to drop the lay bet at 1.01 so was down 10p on £440.
WOOT! This is the end of this Canbet realod and I'm up £200 thanks to some good fortune and trading!
