Ok, lets stop now !!! Your pick will stay void and you have to live with that.

And if you think better....maybe it's better we forbidded specials ( for you at least). You didn't do very good when you were taking all those specials, and now, when they are forbidden, you're leading the standings :wink:

I believe you when you're saying that you accedently wrote Betpoint instead of Pointbet ( as a matter of fact i'm 99.9999% sure you did it accidently) but you have to realize that if i don't void your pick than xxxx competitors will attack me and question the regularity of POD if you win it !

I hope you understand me !




Oh, and i will ask Terje for another moderator on POD. The person must be a regular here on POD, he must have proven being fair and helpfull etc etc....
I have few people on my mind..... but everybody who's interested can send me a PM !

because its easier to read and you read it much faster!! when there are many lines together and these letters are small its to confusing

and sometimes people get lost while reading then go back and see where they last read the words!

while starting new sentences they get confused where to go !!

my way its much easier and much faster to read!

Moldoveanu, it was said million times :

YOU CAN CHANGE THE ODDS, THE BOOKMAKER, THE BET TYPE... YOU CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING !

But you can't change anything if it's less than 1 hour before the match starts.


Here you can find all the rules :

My two cents. GL.

Yeah, and if Moldoveanu bets in some betting exchange like Betfair and he wants to bet on Arsenal but instead of this he LAYS Arsenal and then Arsenal wins, maybe he will cry to Betfair to give his money because he wanted to BACK Arsenal instead of LAY Arsenal but made a mistake. :lol:

It is funny to cry so much for one pick. We can pick 100 euros for him if the situation is "Life or death". BuI don't think anybody cares... :lol:

Of course it is a pity to lose your pick in such way, of course everybody understand it , but this is a human mistake and in this case he will pay for this mistake. Next time he will read his pick one more time before posting and will not make such stupid mistakes.

If moderators accept his pick then can you imagine what will happen in this subforum? Everybody will change the name of the bookie and when he win he will cry like Moldoveanu but when he lose he will say: I broke the rules, my pick should be void.

Respect the RULES.

I quite do not understand the rule of 100 points in every bet. I know that it is much easier to count the scores for Minov then, but definetely staking is one of the most important factors in betting and staking 100 on each sporting event doesn't seem reasonable and doesn't reflect the actual quality of picks.

Any thoughts ?

well

if i am changing the POD odds from

2.50 for example to 2.75 and then 3.00

and then say oh i only saw 2.75 i did not see 3.00!!

the odds will count my way because i saw it and posted it and u did not see!!

or just call the bookmaker and ask them what were the odds!!

There is a site where i follow the odds change :wink:

And plus, moderators are not alone here. Competitors and all the members who visit POD will see that you changed the odds !

But..i repeat...you can't change anything if there is less than 1 hour before kick off.

For example : You take Milan-Inter at 13:00, but the match starts at 16:00.
You can change evry little detail. The odds, the bookmaker, the preview, you can even take another match instead of Milan-Inter.
But you will have to do all these things until 15:00. If you do this at 15:01 or later, then your pick will be void !!!!

I think it should stop as it is GH as the fact that its turned into a competition should be secondary imo and staking therefore is not a great relevance. The main point of starting POTD before sponsorship etc. was to pick the best bet of that day, irrespective of odds. It was a place where people could look for 2 possibly 3 good bets for a combo etc. and have a genuine possibility of winning as the bets were supposedly the best that certain people could find. That, sadly, has now changed to everyone competing against each other for the prize.

I'll be perfectly honest, I very rarely look for bets in these threads because its hard to know which are 'genuine' POTD and which are, well, Ill let you fill the gaps in However, I place more importance on someone who has a small profit but a good percentage of winning picks, compared to someone at the top of the table from a small percentage. Yea, I know that profit/yield is the main point of betting, but POTD was about picking WINNERS, not profit.

You know CG that it is almost impossible, as odds and stakes are insolubly (the word taken from the dictionary ) connected with bets and best bets of the day is a pick + stake + odds, not pick + odds. The competition is very popular and therefore I don't believe that the initial idea still exist. When you say that point it is to pick the best match irrespective of odds it should mean that the best bets here should be bets on heavy favourites as they have the biggest possibility of winning of course.
I would vote for implementing the staking, as this would prove the real quality of both tipsters and bets.

I'll be perfectly honest and I'll admit that I never ever took a bet from POD personally (of course excluding my picks)

Hmmm, interesting idea.

f.e if someone takes odds 2.00 and goes 8/10, he will lose 80 points if he miss the pick, and get 80 if he wins it. Or if someone goes with 5/10 on same odds, he could lose 50 points, but also win only 50 points !!!

The only problem here is this : Some guys, who are here only for the prizes, could go with 10/10 on odds 3.50, just to get more points, without feeling responsibile about some people who will see 10/10 and put huge amount of money on a pick that even the guy who proposed it won't go with more than 2/10 ( or won't even bet on it) !!!

Sani also had a good idea :

3) This staking system means each participant must have at least 10 picks per month
4) Each participant can not have more than one pick per day
5) Each participant can choose any odds and any bets he likes but max payout per pick is 200 units
Also very interesting, but it would take a lot more work by the mods, and i don't know if someone has the time to count all this !!!

I agree that the competition is not perfect at this moment, but there have been too many changes in very short period, so there shouldn't be any more changes in the next 3-4 months.
PS Sani's idea is good for me too

I completely agree with you. But I write on POD with my real pick of the day. Not only to win the prize. I have untill now 0/4 and I never tryed to bet on 3.50. I still pick 1.80 or even lower if i think that is the pick that is the best for that day.

Of course every one is here for the prize, but for me I am no fighting for the prize with all kind of tricks and I am not trying all or nothing with 3 or highet odds.

I hope that there are others like who want to share their best pick of the day.

And for the rules, Sani suggestion is very good imo.

And for Minov, I think he is doing great job here. He anwered me on every question, he gave me a lead how to post picks and was of great help. Continue the great job :wink:

I also agree that there have been enough changes at the moment. The point I was making was that I personally take more notice of the winning percentage of a competitor rather than his profit

There won't be any changes until June !
POD still isn't perfect, but it's getting closer to it .

We could make some changes from June, for summers POD.
We'll have 92 days for 20 picks.

Also i have plans for starting a World Cup competition in this subforum. I was thinking about the format of that competition and i think i found the solution :P

But still too early to talk about that...

This is the real place for your post blaudio and here's my answer.
YES, the POD competition is the place where I post my Picks of the day. Those are the picks that are the best picks for me for that day and those are the picks that I will bet on them. I have just returned from my local bookie where I have placed my money on Lecce today.
I don't know about the others but that's how I see the POD competition

I agree with u,betonme,every participant place the bet that he cosider the best for that day.We all have so many games from where to make our choice and lots of opinions.We must respect the others opinions and place our bet considerig the facts from a pick if it worth or not!
Good luck!

How ironic...
Zozo the duke lost 2 or 3 picks out of 4 because he chose big favourites in english cup matches with the 2,5 handicap.
Today he (finally) chose a normal handicap, on Arsenal (-1.5) but they won 7:0 :lol: :lol: :lol:


Ain`t that a bitch?
