    You can have multi accounts at BetFair as long as its all under your name

    Some players like to separate accounts for each sport so they can track

    Not to forget about their share price which has been dropping like crazy:

    These guys have a serious problem!

    Justin,
    Downgrade them!

    It's also a great way to avoid premium charge

    accounts are linked

    mcorbin...............basketball
    mcorbin1...........tennis
    mcorbin2.......horses

    bascially you use each account just for one sport and 100% allowed and all linked but balances not linked

    BF is a greedy company. They don't want winning players anymore but this issue (3.1 Million Dollar Slow pay) is a complicated subject. Regular players won't have problems like these.

    I hope Betdaq gets better. Really liked their motto: We don't charge a premium on Winners as we don't think it's Fair

    all they need is some big players to get volume going

    regular players have nothing to fear

    only a miniscule number will ever face the premium charge, particularly if they have a plan to ensure they don't qualify for it

    still the best place to have an account unless your only interest is US sports

    I left betfair soon after they introduced the PC a while back - after burning through the buffer, they wanted $1k in a week, on top of hefty regular commission. Not been back since, their prices are simply rubbish after PC. Also makes it impossible to stakesize properly.

    What's nice is the latest PC moneygrab has finally pissed off a number of big players, and the liquidity at betdaq and matchbook has improved as a result. Had a number of tennis plays recently at matchbook, slightly better price than betfair (because of only 0.5% commission), and no premium charge.

    Weird. Everywhere I had documents, ... odd.

    I am re-uploading it. I reviewed the original video, and all the documents are there.

    Who's responsible for imposing a $20k limit on transactions ?

    Doesn't make sense to me. How does UK business manage to trade with Russia?

    I wouldn't be too surprised if Betfair isn't falling over itself to see this guy paid speedily as they probably know he's made the money playing fixed games.
