Me too, Sondrio. As you probably know, the idea of a trade of this nature is to cash out shortly after the favourite scores to secure a profit, so the trade was a successful one in that respect, just that the initial liability was too high for my liking.
But for any interested novices out there a lay-the-draw trade is only a losing one if you let the trade run (i.e for the full 90 minutes) and the game ends in a draw. Traders don’t actually do that. They either cash out for a profit before full-time (way before full -time ideally) or indulge in a little damage limitation if the trade goes wrong.
I’ll put up an example on the forum when a suitable trade comes along.
