I always wonder how 'gubbing' works. Back well before I was even contemplating matched betting I had my Paddy Power account gubbed, just as a regular punter. God knows why, I never made a profit out of them.

In the 'matched betting world' You will get gubbed if they see you are a customer who just bonus hunts the entire time

Why are regular punter would get the boot, well apart from taking too much value I can't think of a reason why.

Got a gubbing from betfair. Going by the OM forum they have had a clearout past few days. Not a great loss without the 3/1 offer. Wondering if it might affect my PP account though which should be in good health.

My profits this week are coming from punts. Stradivarius/Battaash/Threat singles and doubles. Hoping for a lot of 2.5+/BTTS goals on Saturday afternoon

Good to see Matched Betting in the mainstream press again


He said Betfair “pioneered matched betting” through its Exchange website, allowing “punters to make money in the same way as the London Stock Exchange allows investors to buy stocks.”


Bad days when the pioneers gub you :D

"An insider at a PR firm that represents many of the biggest bookmakers said the industry does not have a problem with the practice " - Yeah, and there is a word for that and it is the stuff that comes out of the backside of a male cow!!!!!!!

100% Someone has paid for that article to be written (Betfair? as they get several mentions). Surprised it doesn't have an affiliate link to PA embedded in it it's so biased. Newspapers are becoming more like blogs it seems.

I wondered if it was a paid-for ad but there aren't any backlinks on it and aint no one running a website gonna pay for that lol!

And how close were Leeds to this situation if a wealthy person hadn't come along?
