It's not illegal to do this so of course you will get people doing this when they know the pools will be small
In my opinion, its professionally manipulated, so that person wager bets on the Open Bet. If you watch the Pools closely you can take advantage of it. Happens often in the UK in 4 or 5 runner fields for a certain bet type. If you cannot beat them, join them....
The problem there is that the bookies won't pay out more than the pool total.
But R3000 and R1900 is not bad at all
There are about 6 to 7 online bookmakers offering Open Bets online. So you can win at each bookmaker whatever the pool is divided by 2 or 3 places.
......fewer people are playing through the tote.....so very easy to manipulate the pools and payouts in smaller pools...is
not all punters perse....just one clever oke in a room with 5-10 operators each with a tote acc and an online device.... he is playing open bet with a bookie while others cancel tote bets on his mark....he moves into the next chair and plays next okes open bet acc and each operator moves one over doing what the clever oke says.....
My idea of "help from above" is a sniper on the roof
and a higher power is a hell fire missile armed drone.
