    Matt what a brilliant article. Thanks for taking the time to write it. Looking forward to the next ones. Well done Steve… for letting someone on his blog who puts his writing to shame 😉

    I read it again (and got more out of it.) While I try to beat the market in my chosen specialities, picking off the sick and weak prices from bad books is money for jam… not to be sniffed at.

    Interesting article. However, I have to take exception to this statement “the spread betting industry is responsible for every significant change in odds creation of the last 25 years.”

    This is not correct, far from it. Look to asian books for the real instrument of change.

    I am happy to stand by that statement. Asia was very late to in-running modelling, late to exploit corners markets etc. The Asian books in fact recruited many of the best and brightest from the spread industry to work at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, IBC, SBO and others because they did not know how to do what the spread firms were doing. Asia has always known how to manage liabilities and the power of the wisdom of the crowd and for many years they did not need anything else. When the major London syndicates such as Star Lizard owned by Tony Bloom were using spread betting technology the beat up the Asian market in the early days it was effortless. Asia has always been playing catch up.

    Hi, You mention corners markets and Asian bookies. Do you know of any other bookies that have a similar offer for corners betting as Bet365 does? I know that SBOBET and Pinnacle Sports offer some corners bets options, but these are mostly limited to the top leagues and markets.Thanks.

  • Matthew Trenhaile

    IBC and Sing offer corner markets and often in-running. It is rare to find corner markets being done for lower leagues to my knowledge.

    I have been looking for information regarding how operation Montecristo ended. The case involved Stephen Fletcher using agents to acquire online betting accounts of policemen in NSW. The police did consent to there account bering used.

    However the commission claimed Stephen Fletcher was deceiving the betting companies because he was the one operating the account and the real account holders had no involvement. The commision enquiring explores in great length the issue of gnoming or “bowler accounts” as well as the related Tax issues.

    Whilst i have been able to find information regarding what the commission recomended i have not been able to find any more information for example did Stephen Fletcher recieve a punishment.

  • Mike Kleinsteuber

    Agreed. Betfair has had a significant influence on every part of the entire industry
