“I’m in shock” – the player believes that the bet on the Cheltenham Festival will win until everyone points out the same mistake

PLEASE think of that poor player at the Cheltenham Festival who thought he was going to win until everyone pointed out his big mistake.

A horse racing bettor posted a photo in which they thought Allaho’s chances of beating Ryanair at the meeting next month were 16-1.

The player posted this image of the market and explained his bet, which he considered winning.

The superstar, coached by Willie Mullins, is the favorite for the race and generally has 8-11 odds.

Posting a photo of the market, the bettor said: “The Sky Bet special bet is somewhat superior to the 8-11 offered at the moment.

“16-1! I had a few pounds, so there is no maximum of 10 pounds, etc.”

However, it’s always good to read the fine print, and a number of other bettors who have done just that have noticed a blatant betting error.

It turned out that the player was betting on what would happen first? market, not Ryanair’s direct market.

Other odds available to answer the question “what happens first?” including Honeysuckle, who won the championship barrier 1–2.

Then there was Shishkin, who won the Champion Chase 3-1, and Facile Vega, who won the Champion Bumper 8-1.

The player needed all of these favorites with flop odds to flopping just for their bet to have a chance.

Those who fix a bug communicate this to the player in no uncertain terms.

One said, “Give him a break, this man thought he was on the right track.”

Another wrote: “He’s definitely here in the wind.”

While another Facebook user wrote: “He had a damn mare here.”

After a flurry of messages under his post, the player returned to admit his mistake.

They said, “Proper laugh at my last post. I should win a prize for making you all laugh!

“Let’s go, God! I’m in shock today.”

And then they added: “Terrible day.”

At Least The Player Was Able To Laugh At His Mistake.
