Good one Procrastinator, I think I might join you in this trading malarkey. Personally I reckon I'll start with a teeny wee float and either build it up until it's a million pounds or (more likely) make an arse of it and end up with nowt. A new betfair account with ring-fenced trading money will prevent me from losing ALL my money.
During the close season there are plenty of obscure foreign football matches going in-play at betfair, Wimbledon should have plenty of liquidity and apparently there is money to be made trading the horses.
Count me in for the trading challenge please. Although I can't start properly until next week due to one more week of exam marking hell. Will use the wife's redundant Bf account and betangel and start with £100.
Yep count me in - i'll start with £100 and go til bang or bust
Grandthrax - would also be interested in any info you can dig up, thanks
Will use BetTrader for the mo, not sure if i'll take the ladder mode option yet..
To open a second Betfair a/c do I just apply in the normal way? (and can I click thru the TGT link?)

I've added a note to the first post, can everyone please just hold fire on this for now and not sign up for new betfair accounts or trading subscriptions to various software until we've managed to get some kind of promotion organized and hopefully prize money and sponsorship etc.
For now please just register your interest in taking part and your name will be added to the first post. After that, watch this space
Please also note that this promotion is for active members of the forum only. I know most if not all of you on this thread are active anyway - but worth stressing just so we don't get hundreds of people rock up with just 1 post to their name saying 'I'm in'!
As for the promotion, what kind of timeframe would people be up for? At the moment I'm thinking perhaps a whole month - say all through July? So you'd get the whole of that month to generate as much profit as possible and if you blow your float then you're out (no redepositing etc). Or is that too long?
Must admit it will probably take a couple of weeks to sort the promotion out.
