CHALLENGE UPDATE SUNDAY 28/06/09
Only 3 days to go until the start of the challenge!
Thanks a lot for everyone that's registered and emailed their details so far - in all there are now 20 people who have emailed their details in. Please bear with me as I confirm these registrations, you should be OK to go for 1st July, it looks like it's taking around 48hrs for new registrations to appear on the affiliate system at the moment.
The system of depositing £50.xx is working brilliantly! Should really touch wood right now because it's going a little bit too smoothly really! Even so if everyone can please complete their Betfair forum chat name registration that will confirm 100% who is who for all avoidance of doubt pretty much.
In total there are now 8 users who are confirmed - look in your user profile and you should see the little icon next to it if you're confirmed - I'll also try to update the first post here which might be just as easy to check to see if you're confirmed:
If you've yet to register there's plenty of time - you don't necessarily have to have registered before July 1st - since the challenge is running all the way through July you can start at any time up until the end of July but of course you'll have more chance of generating a larger profit if you start early.
I will be away through the day tomorrow but should hopefully be back in the evening or at latest on Tuesday, please do keep sending in the registrations if you haven't already!
CHALLENGE UPDATE 01/07/09 (also emailed to everyone taking part)
Well, the Challenge got off to a good start today! There were a good number of people (around 30) up and running with their accounts verified and BetTrader subscription added. If anyone has been confirmed (ie has the trading icon next to their forum name) but they haven't yet got ladder access, please contact me and I'll help get it sorted.
Currently there is only one person who has emailed me their details for the challenge but is yet to be verified - although they only joined yesterday so I expect it to be confirmed tomorrow - hang in there mate.
Also I added a couple more people to the list - Gibber and hebangsthedrums. If you can guys can follow the instructions in the challenge thread I'll get you confirmed asap so you can get cracking with the challenge.
As for results - I'm sure everyone is itching to talk about their results! If everyone can please use this thread to post their results and I'll keep the 'leaderboard' updated in the first few posts.
Hope there aren't too many of you who've 'gone out' just yet - if / when you do go out if you can let me know so I can update my notes that would be appreciated. Personally I'm 'going small' for a while after having a close call betting with £50 stakes in running on the tennis! Damn you breakpoints giving me a heart attack...
