Default How should books grade this bet...

HT/FT

Match gets interrupted and stopped say... in the 60 minute with the score still at 0-0.

What happens to wagers? Do they all get refunded? What about those that were losing at HT anyway, like HT/FT 1/1?

Yes, obviously they will grade HT wagers as those were fully decided, but what happens to FT/HT ones? Do all get refunded or is it a big pay-day for the bookie with only losing bets and regunds being involved... and zero winners?

Almost all books have that they wait 24-48 hours for the game to get started again and played the full 90 minutes, OR to see if there will be an official result on the game from the official soccer fed. (like 0-0 in your case, if it is due to one of the teams fans etc.). If there is no official result within the time frame the book have in their rules, then all bets are refunded, since there is no official FT result to grade the HT/FT bet with. The asian books are a little bit different, since they pretty much all just cancel bets on games that is not played and completed on the date they were scheduled.

That's how I would grade it, because otherwise the book would have a champagne ball by dividing bets into those that get refunded... and those that are losers. No winners would be paid out.

Let's make things a bit more difficult. Let's say that a book has a 80 minute rule, and that all matches stopped after 80 minutes of play will count for 1/X/2 purposes. What then? Would HT/FT bets count likewise?

no, this is a prop bet... same as a baseball game that goes 5 innings but not 9.

If the game doesn't go the distance, the prop bets get cancelled, all bets refunded.

OK, but what happens if a book has the '80-minute rule' and settles 1X2 bets this way? All props get cancelled anyway?
