Re: Tennis Tipping #3a - Glasgow Futures

Well now I have lost as a Qualifier trying to make the MD plus also losing in the MD as an LL. That is two Singles losses in one TT! And my Doubles Partner and I are already down one in Doubles I'm being punished I know it! How many times is it possible to lose in one TT?

Well it is a betting site where you can bet on Matches while they are still being played. And they don't give point scores they just show games and, of course, sets.

Re: Tennis Tipping #3a - Glasgow Futures

Of the 3 Matches that are completed I'm 1-2. I haven't done this badly in TT picking in some time! That's what I get for throwing away my Lucky Charm

I know, but a tournament like this can't attract many gamblers, now can it?

I wouldn't think so, but then I'm not a gambler! I was actually shocked at what you can bet on in sites things like Table Tennis. I wouldn't think anyone would be interested in gambling on that either!

It's a popular sport in Asia, and a minor sport in Europe. Top table tennis tournaments are televised by Eurosport, so it's pretty big. Tennis futures is really a small niche, only die hard tennis fans follow them.

You have added to my knowledge because I had no idea that Table Tennis had that large of a following! Of course, here in the U.S. they put poker tournaments on our sports channel, but somehow I just can't think of poker as a sport! And I can't believe how poorly I've picked in this Future

No they haven't go back in the thread and you will see where the game manager told us we could get scores.

Poker is broadcasted on regular channels as well in The Netherlands, mostly late at night. Same goes for darts, I rarely meet anyone that lieks to watch darts, but it's shown very regularly on a (people's) channel.
