Tony Hargraves, better known as “The Badger” around trading circles started trading in 2004, after a friend requested he find a way to back all events in a match and win regardless of the result. The resulting search found Betfair which was not well known in Australia and the rest is history — we opened accounts and played with the numbers and now consider it the only way to operate in the sports-betting industry.
Tony then spent nearly 3 years in Scotland getting involved with the UK trading community, making many friends and great contacts in the trading business. Trading is an exciting new concept to many and the realisation of how it is possible to make money from trading sports while the game is actually in-play really opens the eyes of a lot of people that have grown up just popping into the bookies and having a tenner on their team.
Tony’s trading focus now is on UK football and international cricket trading. Racing is his other serious sport where he mainly does pre-race trading with in-running techniques using the software product BetTrader.
