Ireland are a bit like an FA cup side New Zealand are Premier league .We are like an English Soccer team heading to a world cup great expectations until we meet any of the top 8 sides then the posh schoolboys get beat like Delaneys Donkey .

Minus 6 is also still Three scores or Three converted penalties, as in winning by 6 is still a Loser or a handicap draw.
Lawbreakers are still offering Evens on Minus 6, Go 'Fill your Boots' John M, but personally I wouldn't !

Don't mind the stats. Come the big competitions, the All Blacks and Aussies and England will be fired up. Ireland have shot their bolt way too early. The French are the only team the Kiwis fear. South Africa will be hard to beat. Ireland are only a few injuries away from total elimination at the 1/4's stages. Love to see them making a final, but experience tells me they'll fall short.

Talking double dutch to me there!!

Ship has sailed now, best price 50/1 with 10Bet. Last matched at 41/1 on Betfair. Theoretically I could cover the stake for half the potential profit by laying off on Betfair which, I guess, is what a professional would do... but it's just a throwaway bet for me. The key was to get on while he was playing last night. While he didn't necessarily look like winning at the time I bet he was getting under Anderson's skin and playing at a level that suggested his odds would be cut significantly, win or lose. At it happens he won so the confidence boost coupled with the fact that his game has improved significantly in recent months makes him a live outsider for the WC.

TBH, it was great to see Anderson get some payback... not that long ago since he slagged Price off for not being able to "beat a man with a bad back" and during the week he had another little dig, suggesting that Clayton is the best Welsh player in the world. What goes round....

I didn't like him this time last year. In fact, I woulda put Jamie Lewis in the premier league before him but I'm kinda coming round to his ability to rattle cages and, to be fair, he's starting to back up the bravado with some decent throwing. I wanted him to beat Anderson simply because he didn't rise to the "bad back" or "best Welsh player" comments... at the end of the day he let his darts do the talking. Even after the win, 99 out of 100 players in that position woulda made reference to Anderson's inability to beat a man with a torn hamstring but he even resisted that, cleverly (IMO) getting further inside Anderson's head by simply saying he couldn't handle the pressure. I also liked the "happy days", "nicking money out of the professionals pockets" snippets!

Post by: Rat Catcher on November 20, 2018, 01:36:05 pm
Yeah, they both said they'd be toning it down a bit during the UK open but it seems to come naturally to Price. Whether that's down to his rugby background or whatever he doesn't seem to be able to reign it in. He got a warning from the referee in the semi final too, even though he didn't seem to be overdoing it that much. I don't doubt that he deliberately laid it on for Anderson but that was a gamble.

The thing about Anderson is that he used to be prone to folding under pressure and he used to be easy to wind up. He got through the pressure barrier when he beat Taylor in the Players Championship finals the year he won his first World Championship (I backed him at 10s that year straight after he beat Taylor) and he learned to focus his aggression the next year when he almost lost in the first round to the American who took a "practice swing" before every throw. Essentially Price's gamble paid off, putting Anderson back in a place where he couldn't focus his aggression and turned into a quivering wreck towards the end of the game but it coulda gone the other way! In fact, he got into a social media spat with Adrian Lewis a while back culminating in him losing despite Lewis throwing the worst darts he's ever thrown, the lowest winning average on record if memory serves.... although he probably learned from that too.

Was the gamble justified? Of course it was, you have to earn respect!

Is this the new Darts weekend away to make up fer the weekend away you missed last March due to the snow ?

Keegan Brown is in Blue type (shortening) almost across the board on Oddschecker, but still available at 500/1 with Boyles.

Well he was anyway, I rang Spoilsports trying to get a bet on at 500/1 to share with Stephen,
this is how the conversation went;

"Hello, I'm looking to open an account and have a bet"

A non-national lady most likely in a call center transferred me to another number
and a Doob man answered asking did I wish to open an account ?
I told him that I did and asked the price of Keegan Brown in the Darts players championship ?
He told me it was 500/1 and again asked did I wish to open an account ?

I told him; "Yes, I will if ye will lay me my bet of 20Euro on Keegan Brown at 500/1"
He replied; "And why would we not lay that bet ?"
To which I replied; "We won't even go there !"
"What's your name Sir ?"
"Ken Cashman"
"One second Sir, just gonna put you back on hold".

Two minutes later;
"Sorry to hold you Sir we can open an account for you but the price is now 150/1",
"I'll leave it off, Thanks".


Spoilsports indeed, I might have even watched the darts if'n I got the bet on !

Post by: Belker on November 21, 2018, 06:20:36 am
@ Ratcatcher, Keegan Brown was showing in Blue type all night last night, but now as Oddschecker has refreshed he is showing as standard type today, might be an outsider fer you to consider at 200/1.

I didn't know Sulojvic was out............fiver on a few outsiders. Cross is due a good tournament too..Think that skinny Welsh lad could do well soon also. My money is always on the Serbian Austrian but 3 or 4 fivers on players like Smith etc would be far more prudent. There's a change in the old order coming in Darts. Gurney could be the man..........?

Gon Bovi, eh? Top notch obviously. Reminds me of the Dublin Oasis cover band..........Oh Jaysus. They were very good. Fried food and Boddingtons......your arse will resemble the Japanese flag on the way home. Good luck and enjoy it.
Title: Re: Rugby type stuff
Post by: Rat Catcher on November 21, 2018, 10:31:44 am
That's the weekend alright, Ken. Keegan's odds were cut 'cos Suljovic pulled out of the tournament so he plays van de Pas instead in the first round i.e. instead of the number 7 ranked player he plays the number 30. However, even if he beats Big Ben (so named because he's very tall) he runs into Michael van Gerwyn in the second round so, on balance, I'd say Boyles done you a favour!

As LL suggests, there's a handful of players around the 33/1 mark that would be capable of causing an upset. Although too short for me, Anderson is probably decent value at 9/2 with Paddypower/Betfair Sportsbook... my thinking being that there's a good chance that he'll come back from being wound up last weekend with a point to prove and possibly focused to such an extent that he'll look and play like a man possessed!

Going with the brother and the two not so young lads. I think you have to be in fancy dress to get on the box. I did come up with a fancy dress idea that I was certain would get us on telly - top hats with pictures depicting Aesop's Fables so the commentators could say there's four Paddies in top hat and tails. However, the others weren't so keen and the idea never progressed. Aside from that, dragging the story out a bit, we had originally booked for the UK Open where Mick McGowan (throws with the team in me local) was due to compete and he advised us that Reds is the place to watch so you can watch the games on the main stage on TV and keep an eye on the other games (in Reds) simultaneously hence we probably won't even be in the televised "Sky Line" arena until finals day. Anywaysanall, I reckon our best chance of getting on TV might be to come up with some clever slogans for the 180 cards - any suggestions welcome but not too clever, bear in mind it's the darts - although the brother does share Chris Mason's "taste" in shirts which might attract some attention, I guess.

Is'int it terrible that the kounts wont lay a bet, even a measly 20Euro bet from me yesterday morning, I had a long think about objecting to their bookmaking licence and their personal fitness to hold a bookmaking licence yesterday, but as I didn't record the call then I allowed them the oppurtunity to lie their way out of it, even at that it would take a lot of time and effort to take on such a task and they didn't piss me off enough to do so, maybe mentioning my real name didn't help my cause.

Plenty of 500/1 about Lennon now that all the English firms have priced up. Coulda waited a day and saved the shoe leather... but then I woulda missed the 33/1 about Smith, top price 25/1 now... swings and roundabouts, I guess. - strangely, the oddschecker desktop site isn't showing the full market but the mobile site is.

Lennon is one for the future. Impressive when losing in the first round of last years World Championship, hasn't set the world alight since but has climbed to number 39 in the order of merit earning a little over STG£100,000 in prize money alone over the last two years and clearly establishing himself as the top Irish player on the circuit.

7 oc kick off the goons will be absolutely pissed by 10 crying about the ref or blaming the pitch .Orlagh and Grizelda will opine that since Drico left the game has lost its sex appeal ,I wonder how many of the quems will be out to support their sisters in green tomorrow against whoever it is they are playing .A fucking joke of a game .

Fuck me, that was just about the maddest weekend of my life, highly recommended. Where else in the world would someone behind you shout "Tellytubby get the balloon" with it making complete sense! My bets on Smith and Lennon didn't pay off but Lennon got a nice run into the quarter finals - much further than the 500/1 odds suggested and taking a leg off van Grewen against the throw ought to do his confidence some good. Anywaysanall I landed a tenner four fold on Saturday afternoon (G Clemmons 6/4, R Evans 11/8, S Burton 9/4 and S Lennon 1/1) collecting £385 after one hell of a sweat watching both Lennon and Reyes miss dart after dart to settle the last game - I didn't even pull the pretty girl on the Ladbrokes counter up on leaving me 94p short, just thought to my drunken self, fuck it let 'em have it!

Fair play to Gurney, he found his way to "centre stage" to celebrate with the fans well into the early hours of Monday morning... as did Dancing Dimitri, winner of the youth championship. I think I'll be in recovery for a month!

Only saw his games on Sunday. Stayed in Reds watching stage 2 on Friday and Saturday, bar a quick dash across to watch the Lennon/Reyes game. Very hard to concentrate on the darts in the main arena with the Beer Angels (prettiest little girls you've ever seen) stretching and bending all over the place and the fucking commercial breaks every 5 legs. Reds is a much more intimate set up, you can actually see the board from your table and you get to meet some of the players who come in for a pint after their games... not to mention the opportunity to assess the lesser known players' abilities e.g. I hadn't heard of two of the players I backed on Saturday (Clemmons and Burton) until they played on Friday...

We will talkabout setting up a meeting to talk about progressing the implimentation of the design perameters after the weather clears up a bit probably .and then we will explore if we can acquire an actual shovel for the brickies mate then locate a place to stand the shovel up while we try to work out what type of block would be best to stack close to where they might be needed in the future .

It's great to come home with more dosh than ye left with and expenses paid.

Did it twice meself, once in 1980 when I was 15 and sent off to Gravesend in Kent not too far from London on a 'Learning' work experience with a top English greyhound trainer, I reckon the 'Top' trainer learned more from me than I did from him !
Anyway we visited many dog tracks around London every night and with beginners Luck being what it is, I made a tidy profit from the on-course bookies as the Tote staff would not lay me as I was under 18. Me Daza gave me a Deuce Sterling before putting me on the plane and I came home with about £350 Sterling, never said a word ta me Daza though !

The other one was Poznan in 1992 fer a world cup qualifier against Poland, pissed as a coot I played roulette by night while totally inebriated and somehow managed to get home with about £200 more than I left with.

I used to go to the dogs a bit in the late 80s / early '90s. Seems to have gone down hill everywhere nowadays, only one track in Dublin and loads closed down across the water. Seems the punters of today prefer to put their hard earned on virtual shite these days.

Oh, forgot to mention the sting in the tail with me darts bet... when the lad took it he franked it for £20 and I corrected him as I had written £10 and tendered £20 because I like the plastic £10 notes... anwaysanall when the pretty girl was working out my return (using the calculator of her phone for some reason) she got the lad I put it on with to check her math saying that's the stake as she pointed at the franked bit on the bottom (and I thinks nice one) but he looks at me and presumably remembers our earlier conversation while congratulating me on a couple of good prices so says to me it was a tenner, right... yes, says I, shame I didn't leave the twenty, etc... strange though that they didn't seem to have a machine to scan/automatically settle the slip, maybe 'cos it's a "pop up shop"?

That seems strange, if the male cashier had not been there, then most likely you would have been paid on the £20 stake. Back in the day if a bet was stamped up fer more than it should have been, then next to the stamped stake at the bottom would be written "O/R £10" meaning an over-ring.
As fer the girl using her phone to calculate the odds, I'm guessing that there is a settling app now available and the girl didn't do the 2.375 X 3.25 X 2.5 X 2 X £10 to arrive at the 385 figure.

Narcissists often portray themselves as innocent victims of the sins of others whilst attempting to manipulate others into accepting them........women often do it by deferring to men, whilst male Narcissists, when found out by their female betters, desperately try to rally the troops in their quest for praise, oftentimes insisting that they pay for everything to conceal their inner desperation at having being copped and exposed by a cleverer female.

There again, she might just have been trying to be nice. You'd have needed to see her instagram and snapchat photos to suss it either way. They like pictures of themselves.

As fer Pop-up shops I hate em, I like me counter, me coin dispenser, me Anker F7 till and me OTT super settler.
Pop-up shops have none of these items. I remember the First one I did in a Cork pub fer Cheltenham, I was given a float and told to meet Freddie (one the locals) in the bar and he would be my assistant fer the day, so I grabbed a few betting slips and biros and pocket calculator and headed off to meet Freddie who was sat supping at the bar, he was a most pleasant man and I thought this was gonna be a doddle and I would be assisting Freddie rather than the other way around.
So I said the Freddie; "Tell me, how does this work ?"
And Freddie replied; "Jaysus ! I don't know, I don't know how they talked me in to doing this, I never had a bet in me life !"

They seemed to have all the mod cons, Ken... although the price screens were playing up so they backed them up with marker on 180 cards. When he changed the stake he done something on his terminal but I don't think he amended the receipt (photo below). In any event, had they overpaid I'm sure it would have come to light soon enough and I'd be looking over me shoulder for the rest of the weekend.

No, I don't think so, it would seem to me that the bet was logged in as a £20 bet and if'n it had paid out as a £20 bet then that was the end of it. If by chance they did come looking fer you and you not being the stoopidist person in the world could easily claim; "Never seen ya before in me life Boss".
The law would be totally on your side as gambling debts are not recoverable by law and you being an anonymous figure to them left them with no recall to security or police.

To go a step further, which I doubt you will take as the time and effort involved would be too great, you could ring them and say that your official docket read at a £20 bet but you were only paid out on a £10 stake, and threathen to object to their Bookmaking licence and their Suitability of personal fitness licence, it would be a long haul and lots of lies would have to be told by you, but I reckon you would get your extra £385 in about 5 years time !

As fer the Law on gambling debts not being recoverable by law;

An old acquaintance of mine known as 'Buffalo' fer his big stature is a total gambling addict, a builder by day (some times) and a gambler by night, to this day he still rapes the drunken students by night in the city casino playing sober against the drunken students in Texas Hold 'em.

Anyway a few years back Buffalo was punting away on the horses in a small town outside of Cork and his Luck was in big time on the day and he ended up taking away about 46K outta PP, some of it paid in cash but the most of it paid by cheque.

All was good, Buffalo lodged the cheques in to his account and a few days later when all the cheques had cleared, he went back to the same town and the same PP office. The PP staff were only too delighted to see him walking in through the door, thinking that they might just get their 46K back.
Buffalo punted away in Grands on everything and anything, losing a few quid, winning a few quid and all cash over the counter, then he suggested to the PP manager of the shop to have it on credit rather than be counting out the cash all the time, she agreed.

Buffalo lost about 50K (On credit) that afternoon and walked out the door !

It wasn't intentionally ambiguous, just written on a textured bar ledge, similar to the one it was subsequently photographed on.

There used to be a lot of drunks playing holdem in casinos up above in Dublin, easy pickings for a sober night owls... the last recession pretty much killed that off. Same applied to online poker at the height of it's popularity, these days most players know what they're doing.
