I’m enjoying watching sports personality of the year this evening. A self congratulatory indulgence, but justifiably so after a wonderful year for sport in the UK. Difficult to pick an outright winner from a general perspective, so many valid candidates, but Bradley Wiggins has been the short priced favourite for ages.

A point of note however, public based voting competitions can often throw up some really unexpected results. Voting patterns are difficult to predict and campaigns, deliberate or well intentioned behaviour have often thrown up surprise winners. So if Wiggo is short enough I may shift some profit around to leave me overweight on other positions. Five minutes till voting closes now and late money for Jess Ennis.

So many people deserving, I hope however wins dedicates it to everybody who has contributed to a fantastic year of sport in the UK.

I left a good job in the consumer technology industry to go a trade on Betfair for a living way back in June 2000. I've been here ever since pushing very boundaries of what's possible on betting exchanges and loved every minute of it.
