    How to beat the bookie in tennis

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/7241383.stm

    Not strictly ethical, but I don't see why they were ejected.

    They obviously weren't using ladbrokes or they next two points would have been over by the time it matched their bets

    They've obviously never heard of mobile betting, a wee bit less obtrusive than the auld laptop

    Don't see how it's illegal. I've often seen people at the racetrack with laptops betting IR etc, which is similar.

    It's not illegal, but the organisers of the event reserve the right to fcuk you out if they feel like it, they did give the guys an opportunity to stop, but they obviously didn't feel the tennis on its won was entertaining enough. Card counting isn't illegal either, it's just being clever, but that doesn't mean casino's allow it.

    good points there.
    Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

    If you have an online account bet in running on the server the win the next game. You're bound to make a profit as most of the games will be won by the server.

    The server is usually 1-8 or 1-16 so if they're broken once or twice in the match you'll make a loss

    Yeah, seems pretty crap with those odds. Didn't realise they were that low.

    They aer probably a lot better for women's tennis as their serves aren't as powerful and breaks of serve are more common.

    It is important to take into account the psychological state of the athlete in the game, because a stronger player technically a player can lose a set and even a match, making a mistake on the first serve. Making a break in tennis (taking a game on the opponent's serve) is very important, and it is almost impossible to foresee this in advance.
