  2. All bets placed after the actual start of an event will be void, except in the case of live bets and bets on events with odds that are updated during the course of the match.
  3. An event is considered postponed or cancelled if the officially scheduled start time is altered.
  4. If, for any reason, a match or a competition is postponed or rescheduled to start more than 30 hours later than the originally scheduled start time, all bets will be void.
  5. If, for any reason, a match or a competition is postponed and starts within 30 hours of the originally scheduled start time, all bets will stand. If an interrupted match or a competition is not restarted within 30 hours, all bets will be void, unless the market result has already been determined. This rule does not apply to the events which can take over 30 hours in their regular course.
  6. If a participant withdraws before the start of the event, all bets on that participant will be void.
  7. If a participant withdraws after the competition has already started for any reason (injury, retirement, etc.), all bets placed before the start of the last round in which that participant took part will stand, and the remainder of the bets will be void.
