    So today I decided to bet two Taiwanese baseball games.

    The line for both games were about (-135/+104) and the o/u (9.5).

    Unfortunately, it turned out the games were resumed from September 8th.

    One team was already up 4-0 in the top of the 3rd and another already up 3-0 in the bottom of the 2nd. Of course I took both UNDERS. I even took the ML on the team trailing 4-0 at only +104.

    Give the odds and the totals, I think even the linemakers didn't realize this game was going to be resumed? :(

    When I tried to contact Live Chat immediately after the game started, none of them were of any help.

    I guess I screwed myself, though I wonder if anybody took the correct side in these games, and if your book graded them as wins.

    So you happened to take the wagers that you were already at a disadvantage.

    That sucks

    I actually bet a decent amount of international baseball. I think this might have been the only postponed games of the season. Lucky me.

    Thanks. I'm actually up more in international baseball than in MLB. :'( I think the lines are softer.

    But yea, I guess I dropped the ball on not realizing this game would be resumed. I actually searched everywhere for proof to the books right when the game started but couldn't find any mention. Downside with smaller sports, unfortunately, is less news coverage. Add the language barrier and it doesn't get easier.

    5dimes will usually state that the game is being resumed. I am surprised that somewhere it didnt say that the game was already in progress.

    The lower the skill level the more difficult it is to predict the outcome
