Just received an email from Matchbook alerting me to this new offer.

Nice marketing slogan of:

"Time to Bet Fair"

I've just had a look at the first at Dundalk on Matchbook, the liquidity isn't bad. The problem is I'm not aware of any trading software vendors that cover Matchbook.

Don't they usually charge commission on each bet? Good to see they're including Cheltenham but can't see traders sticking around with their commission structure.

Can't imagine they're scared just why would you want to allow advertising for another vendors software on your site, they have a forum that does exactly the same, so it's hardly one sided.

We censor just to stop abuse of the forum. We suffered from it in the past in waves and doing this has halted it.

We want to encourage people to talk about trading and stuff, we just don't want the forum being used as a tool for advertising.

We have talked to matchbook a lot, but nothing has come of it. We need funding of some sort to pay for development ultimately. They kindly invited me to talk at their conference so happy to mention them.

If I understand correctly, trade £2000 and break even, on Betfair you pay nothing, with Matchbook it's £30 for the back bet and up to £30 for the lay bet at 1.5% commission. Hardly betting fair!
