    It’s some years since I was last involved but I used to use TBA in Brighton(or Hove?)

    I can’t trace them today and wonder whether anyone knows whether they are still about and if not – is there another, similar, outfit about today?

    I used to be able to place bets with them with a large range of conditions and they guaranteed to accept any bet.

    Sounds like a load of spamming bollox to me

    No spamming, used to use them in 2001 but can’t find them now.

    The clue to there whereabouts is probably in your question.

    If they guaranteed to take any bet then they most likely went bankrupt.

    Track Betting Agency, I think. Used to advertise in the Handicap Book years ago.

    Betbrokers do similar online, claim to get you best price, want 3% of stake, or if odds on 3% of winnings.

    Almost certain they folded several years ago. I’d guess the internet played a part. You’d know better than me but basically TBA were commission agents. Nowadays with the price comparison sites and exchanges you can find the best deal more easily for yourself. But as I say above betbrokers.com exists online if you want to pay for a middle man.

    BB aren’t so much about paying the middle man but for those who can’t get on with the mainstream bookies – they’ll put the bet on for you and you’ll effectively remain anonymous :)
