Interesting concept but is it legal.

Anyone thinking of betting on Charlie himself (even at odds of 100-1) would be advised to look at the list of entrants.

I'm no gambler but they don't look like very generous odds for the players below the top four.

I think Chess needs this extra platform for a popularity boost.

Think of it as Sauce on your Burger.

All other sports have betting markets - If it becomes successful - I'l register it all through the appropriate Channels.

For now - give the people what they want!

I am rather reluctant to allow this slightly dodgy 'private' betting post to remain?

Remote general betting (standard)

If you are offering a fixed odds betting service by remote communication, (for example via a website) from remote gambling equipment based in Great Britain, you need a remote general betting (standard) licence. There are two types of remote general betting (standard) licence.

The type of general betting standard licence you require will depend on whether you are offering betting on real or virtual events. Where you offer betting on both you will be required to have both types of licence.

The limit for general betting (telephone only) licence is less than £275,000 gross gambling yield per annum; if you exceed this limit, you will need a remote general betting standard licence, though you may not necessarily have remote gambling equipment based in Great Britain.

Remote general betting (standard) (virtual events)
If you are offering betting on virtual games, races, events or other processes by means of remote communication you should apply for a remote general betting (standard) (virtual events) operating licence.

Remote general betting (standard) (real events)
If you are offering betting on real events (as opposed to virtual events) by means of remote communication you should apply for a remote general betting (standard) (real events) operating licence.

Please make sure that the betting services you offer are available under your remote betting general operating licence. Apply for an operating licence.

I have just contacted Gambling commission and wait their answer - in the mean time no bets are taken until confirmation legal.

Alex if I set it up can I have full support in promoting the Betting Market across all ECF Media?

I believe this will massively fuel interest in chess to an even wider audience.

Please clooaborate and confirm it as my paying their ridiculous Licesncing fees will be dependant on your decision.

ECF Decision makers;

If I get this License I could become your 'On Site Bookie'

Would you be amenable to me taking a variety of bets at The Championship that I would also update on an Internet site - that you would help me promote?

If you agree - it would be 100% legal and you would give me 100% support with its promotion.

My recently created Sniper DVD's can be viewed here;

The same DVD's can be downloaded immediately here: http://www.charliechess.com/Download.html

If I sell enough I will enter The Major Open and (50 - 50) get up-floated to British Championship.

If you want the Sniper Chief in the event Download today!

Charlie - Just email Betfair and they'll set up the market for you. As you piggy back their gaming licence, it's all perfectly legal.

They would not provide an 'On Site bookie' for more markets.

Have you used this for you e4 events in the past Sean.
