    Set of rules to follow shortly
  • AKD

    1. Each tipster will have a mythical stake of £100 to spend on each match day. Aim is to make a bigger profit than your opponent. You have complete freedom about the number of selections or the type of bets you want to place with your £100 stake. All bets will be settled to industry SP, and according to betting rules. Tipster who gets higher returns than their opponent will win the match (exception applies, please see rule 2 below), and earn 3 points. Both tipsters will be awarded 1 point if a match ends in a draw.

    2. To win a match, a tipster must get a minimum return of £80 from their £100 stake. If both tipsters in match return less than £80, then match will be a considered a draw. This rule is there to prevent people from betting each way on a short price selection.

    3. All selections should ideally be posted on this thread before start of first race of day. This rule will be flexible in that you will still be able to post your selections after first race providing none of your opponents selections has run yet. If you post after one of your opponents selections has run, then your selections will be voided automatically.

    4. Non runners will be voided, and stake returned on them. They can only be replaced if none of your or your opponents selections have run yet.

    5. Selections can be from any races from UK or Ireland.

    I think that’s all the rules, if I think of something else I will add it. If anyone has any questions, please reply to this thread.
  • AKD
    I knew I will forget something. Couple more rules.

    6. If two or more people are level on points at end of Group stage, then positions will be decided according to profit difference.

    7. If a knockout match ends in a draw, then it will be decided by ‘penalties’ the next day. A meeting will be chosen next day to decide the winner.

    Good luck everyone, let’s have some fun and hopefully find some winners along the way.
  • AKD
    There is one place still available for anyone who hasn’t entered yet. If anyone is interested they can take up “System X” spot in the draw before the competition starts tomorrow.
