If Tennis and F1 are being done I don't see that big of a difference, tbh. They both have a large number of outcomes, you just have to pick the favourites and then have an 'other' option. Why am I even asking? All I have to do is pm the odds to 'switch like I have been .

I don't have an issue with it, but with the difficulty involved with so many players and so many outcomes I won't be in a hurry to do it. It would be OK if one of the favs gets through but if an outsider is there it becomes a pain.
With tennis it's the top players that win, same with F1. Golf is unpredictable. I'm not overly familiar with vBookie to know if we can add betting options during an event.

When does the event start?

Re: What would you like - vBookie suggestions.

You could probably wait until after the cut and have the first 10 people as options and the rest put in an 'other' category

Well the thing you can do is edit the odds as the tournament goes (payouts will go down for people in the lead) and leave the odds open till the start of the final day (Sunday). So for Example, if Tiger Woods is up 5 strokes going into Sunday the odds for him would be 1/10 or something. Where as if the odds were originally 2/3 for him and he was out of contention going into the final day the odds would increase to 10/1 or something, depending on how far back he is. The only thing you'd basically need is someone who's willing to switch up the odds. I'm not sure any of the current vbookie managers are willing to do that.

Oh, and the Open Championship starts July 17th.

Re: What would you like - vBookie suggestions.

I know I change the odds, I do that all the time with the Tennis and Cricket odds for Test Matches. I don't know if I can add other players once the original thread has been done.

Re: What would you like - vBookie suggestions.

Well if he's (or she's) not listed that would fall under the "Other" Catagory, and you could just lower the odds for that one considerably. If I was doing it I would have 8 or 9 of the top players with odds for them, then I'd have an other option at about 25/1. By Saturday or Sunday if none of the listed people are in contention or there are not listed (other) people near the top of the leaderboard then I would lower the odds for the "Other" Option to 1/1 or lower depending on how many others are in contention and where the people that are listed are at, if that makes any sense at all. With that being said however, I'm fairly certain that vBookie allows you to add more options, you just have to be careful if bets have already been made obviously. You could check that with a test bookie I'm sure.

EDIT: Another thing, any plans for a special for the Draft this monday? Like last year.

Re: What would you like - vBookie suggestions.

I'll do the Open Championship on the 17th of July. It won't work the way you mentioned but we can get it to work. I'll just update the odds and add/remove players if needed. Players can't be removed, but they can have an *, or something, next to their name and no odds. That way no-one will bet on them.

No idea on plans to bet on the draft.

Re: What would you like - vBookie suggestions.

I'm pretty sure the draft won't be done. I don't watch WWE anymore, not sure about Tom, Platt and David probaly can't be bothered.

Re: What would you like - vBookie suggestions.

A thread in AFL, if it's not already done, for:


The Brownlow
The Grand Finalists - Geel/Haw, Geel/Dogs, Dogs/Hawks, Coll/Geel etc.
Whether the AFL will become Monday Night or not?

The Brownlow isn't up, but that can be arranged. Stuff the Monday night bet.
As for the Grand Finalists maybe that can done during the finals in September.
