Fellahs, if you are after some matched-betting tips, send me a message, and Ill give you tips when I find them.

You have to be careful though. The corporate bookmakers hate being beaten at their own game.

Betfair?
Never tried it.

I know I’m sick of trying to get best price or decent early fixed odds most days

Betfair is an exchange. Think like a stock market. You can either back something to win, or back it to lose.

Bookmakers have the mentality that they want to beat you and take your money. Betfair merely takes the commission of a bet made between the person who bets on the horse, and the person who bets against the horse. So Betfair doesn't care if you win, as they are after your commission, not your money.

The only setback for Betfair is Peter Vlandys increased bookmakers taxes, and also applied it to Betfair's exchange. So Betfair needs to make both enough commission for their own profit, and to afford the taxes Vlandys made them and others pay up.

Betfair also lets you bet live during a horse race. Convenient in events with a leaders bias. Like, bet on the Globe Derby trots as soon as the favourite gets an early lead lol

It's probably banned for good reason: to stop dodgy websites rigging games, and taking our money.

Betfair is good. Comes in handy when you know a favourite can't win, so back it to lose instead.

Unfortunately poker is now banned. There are some grey market websites that will allow Australians to play but it is unregulated so be very cautious.

Like sportsbetting on an exchange Poker is player-vs-player so there's not really incentive for sites to rig games
