Default Who ruined Canbet???

I have kept a keen eye on these guys for 3 years now. They would limit guys getting a jump on an early move or limit guys who were beating them or chasing steam but NEVER did they NOT take a bet or move on air. Well, my friends, seems like the times are a changin' because they have been moving numbers on air for the last 2 weeks and I can't figure why. A big post up operation like that should just book 'em, move 'em, and that's the end of story.

Can anyone enlighten us as to any changes in philosophy at Canbet? Have they been getting beat that badly that they need to do this? (I would understand SLIGHTLY if that were the case) Has there been some kind of change in ownership that we don't know about?

Still an "A" book but I hate to say I agree they have slipped a little.

SBR.COM, you need to change your criteria for an 'A' book. Books that move on air, have microscopic limits, and are afraid to take a bet should NOT be 'A' books. Just because a book is solid and pays is not reason enough to give it an 'A.'

They cut my limits by 80%. They're turning into a bet365.

It's not Bet365. It's Bet 0.0365.

Its called business.. Most bigger British run books have a hold of 7-10% a year running their book like this.. Comparing that to losing money like most Caribian books or having a 2-3% hold, like the best Caribian books have, doesnīt make it too hard too understand why Canbet is now under "British" management.. They couldnīt care less about people crying about too low limits or too high juice(as squares never notice these things anyway), they care about making as much money as possible, as any business do, and they have a huge square base(they are big in Europe too) to do it from, and dont need any sharps cutting into their profit. If you dont like it, we can just go somewhere else... We can make as much fun as we want of the British run books like Bet365, Willhill, and Ladbrokes, but facts are that they are making tons of money running their business this way, compared to other none-British shops who is giving "free" money away on bonusses, low vig, high limits for sharps and so on.. Its all about making as much money as possible.. I belive its as simple as that..
