I will ask Munk if he wants to go next, he may be a little busy though with other stuff though, but I will ask him. After him it is Grandthrax I think, then Bish? Then we have all been and I will think of some kind of prize for everyone who got at least one right.
Edit = srh1984 can have one more guess if wanted as there was a retirement.
Thanks for the thought Mike - I didn't think I was in this though, was I supposed to be?!?!
I've not been placing any bets so far sorry! I had thought about it when you originally posted the thread and do have a book on wimbledon right now on the outright market, but as Andy says have been a little bit busy organizing this trading challenge amongst other things to take part.
(duh just realized this is to do with the bet24 promo - I've got a book going at bet24 for the outright market that's kind of why I didn't join in already!)
Do the prices have to be over a certain level? I was impressed by Hewitt vs del potro yesterday, showed great spirit and imagine he will go a few more rounds yet - but he's only 1.13 on betfair so imagine even shorter at bet24. I also think Safina will go another round at least despite not being comfortable on grass at all (and looking very hot and flustered with it, looks like she's used to sub-zero temperatures!) - I reckon she will fall at the quarters, but again she's fairly short priced though... if anyone else goes for this I'll put a little on each for a bit of conviction!
Just pick any two for Sunday onwards Munk, then Grandthrax, then Bish. See what we finish on from £10 bets.
Then everyone who had a guess and got at least one winner over 1.5 can have the value of whatever their Bet24 remaining balance is (UP TO MY BALANCE) on Murray to win the thing, if he doesnt then TGT will refund that amount to their moneybookers account. Should be an exciting end then.
At the moment my balance is: £65.28 after bets of =

So two losers, two voids and four winners so far, Net +£5.28. The higher the remaining picks manage to get it (Munk, Grandthanx, Bish) the higher the eventual refunded bet amount will be. We have actually finished the bonus wagering anyway but this will add some more fun.
(srh1984 you can still guess again if you want, maybe Munk just pick one on Sunday and srh1984 the other)
Am I going mad? Just saw Andy's extract and saw that my 1st two selections had been settled as 1 loss and 1 void. I have just checked and I have the same but was certain that they originally settled my 1.60 bet as a winner even though the opponent changed. Do you think that they have cancelled subsequently?
Never mind! Good luck with the picks guys and then best of luck with the Murray back, thought that I had sneaked in on that one through the back door!!!!
They must have settled as a winner originally as Andy posted this:
Well I am down £4 after those two
I know it is almost certainly in their rules and I was expecting it to be void anyway because of the opponent change but....
I'll bow out, thanks very much for the offer though Andy, I've not taken part in any of them so far what with organizing the trading challenge (which is getting even busier now with people registering ready for July - if anyone wants in you're all invited by the way!!) so divide my 'share' of anything here between everyone else or something Sorry, probably would have joined in otherwise.
StereoMike and srh1984 you can both have the bet at the end on Murray anyway if you want, its the taking part that counts.
Still two more to pick, Grandthrax and Bish, I will PM them to get choices for Mon and Tues please.
Then I will put up my balance, and all that on Murray to win should make it exciting right down to the end (or Murray is knocked out). If he doesnt win TGT will credit that amount to your Moneybookers account after you send in a screenshot of the losing bet.
