Best Winner

Romford jackpot had reached ~35-38K and was rolling onto a graded card on a Wednesday night where its 3-1 the field- we decided to buy it as soon as the doors open by covering every possible permutation in the 6 races for £46k, lose 27% rake straight away. In the end the prizepool was a record (still to this day) of 88k I think. So if we won it outright we won loads, if another perm won we would nearly break even and somehow if 3 or more won we would lose. 3 dog in 5th leg only had our ticket and smashed and won. Was obviously a great maths bet but whole buzz was good because needed cash in them days as didn't take card for tote bets, so trying to get the money together between Monday night and weds was good fun and got paid out in cash.

Best Loser

Must be 8-10 years ago id guess, we had a friend who was playing for West Ham Youth. West Ham had massive injury crisis and our friend had told us a centre half was going to be playing up front- think it was Ian Pearce will see if can dig it up- anyway was when I just had started in poker and gambling and remember bloke next to me saying just gotta go nut down on this, opportunities like this don't come around very often. I was nearly all in for net worth, managed to get £400 first goal 50/1 £1000 anytime 14/1 £400 last goal 50/1

Was the Monday sky game, West Ham at home v some average side. Boring game, 0-0 and in the 40th minute or so my man misses an absolute sitter. Still have nightmares about it to this day as betfair never had first goalscorer/anytime markets back then so you had to take your punishment.

That is a great tale!

I can just imagine Team Dub walking into Romford Dogs with £46,000 in readies.

Was me and Kev Allen. Both still talk about it to this day

"West Ham United 0
Southampton 1
by Gordon Thrower

Gutted. Again.
Another home match and another defeat. I've long since given up approaching any match with optimism these days but I was in reasonable spirits during the pre-match session in the Wakefield. I'd had a smashing weekend at the wedding of two good friends and both families and the vicar had forgiven me for my part in the candle-lighting incident that nearly burnt the church down so things were looking up.

 The first shock of the evening came with the news that Kanoute was nowhere to be seen on the team sheet. This was despite earlier statements to the effect that Fredi was a definite starter. This bombshell was followed by the news that Ian Pearce was to play up front alongside Defoe with DiCanio dropping back to play just behind the front two. Pearce's elevation to striker meant a return for Repka, whose last appearance had been during the first half of the Leeds match.

 We started brightly enough, once Southampton had actually turned up. Apparently nobody realised that there might be a bit of traffic about during the rush hour on a Monday in London so Southampton only arrived at 7.30pm. Which was fair enough as far as I'm concerned - I only arrived at 7.45 myself. We dominated the first half-hour with several good chances going begging. Defoe hooked a volley wide when unmarked from six yards. Sinclair headed wide from a DiCanio free-kick whilst Carrick, who had an excellent first half, produced a good, if comfortable save from keeper Niemi.

And what of stand-in striker Pearce? Well he did win a few in the air but he looked a lot like a player who hasn't played regularly up front for 10 years. His chance when one on one with Niemi was probably the most clear cut that we had. in the first half and I couldn't help feeling that had it fallen to a proper striker we might have gone in 1-0 up."

Found it. Wow 12 years ago, before played poker and was at uni. Doubt anyone got an xmas gift that year.

And surely no one in this day and age falls for all the Mr Nice guy followed by Mr Nasty guy routine? Its just ridiculous and almost cringeworthy, wish had gone the law route and could instruct all my clients to never say a word

Think its borderline disgraceful the police are just allowed to say and infer anything they like- luckily if you say no comment it just makes the whole thing irrelevant, the old "will hurt you in court" is garbage. No wonder the police get torn apart anytime they are ever called to be a witness for a case actually in court and not in their own bully yard
