It seems the shit may have hit the fan for me here and i need some advice from you americans in here as to what i should do.

Here is the situation. Bookies were offering various odds on the Stanley cup, and they varied to much that you could bet on both teams and win no matter what the outcome was. Well, i put shit loads on and now one of the bookies have cancelled my bets and slashed the odds big time (from 14/5 to 8/15). It now looks like i may loose alot of money.

Well this is what i can do, i can bet on both teams with the same bookies and loose £43 no matter what the outcome is. Or i can let it ride and if the bet comes through i'm up £371 but if they loose i'm down £228.

What do you guys think the chances of Carolina beating Detroit for the cup? I understand Carolina are up 1-0 at the moment.

When is the next game being played? Need to seek legal advice on this one as to the actions of the scum bookies.

Gambling is illegal. At least in America it is. And if its the same in England, you might have trouble taking 'legal action'.
As for the hockey shit; eh, I dont watch it sorry I couldnt help.

I only gamble on b-ball, baseball, and of course the great almighty football (the real kind not sissy soccer). When you gamble on that I maybe able to help you.
Basketball // Football = ran on points
Baseball = ran on odds


Oh and I think you should ride your bet out.

No its not illegal here, however when you place a bet it is technically a gentlemans agreement between two parties. Most bookies dont pull any shit though as they dont want the damage to their reputations as it is such a huge industry.

Normally no legal recourse I believe.
