On a betting exchange, you can perform full cash out or partial cash out. With full cash out, the return is one and the same regardless of the outcome of the event. By performing partial cash out, you decrease the amount of potential loss, but you also decrease the amount of potential profit, and your return still depends on the outcome of the match.
We will look in more detail at one particular case of partial cash out. It is the case where you eliminate the potential loss, but you keep the chance of profit. If your initial bet loses, your return on the market is zero (no profit and no loss). If your initial bet wins, you gain profit. Of course, in order to achieve this, the back odds should be greater than the lay odds of your bets.
This type of partial cash out brings you profit only if your initial bet wins, whereas full cash out ensures a profit in all possible cases. This is offset by the higher amount of profit that partial cash out gives you. Last but not least, it keeps the thrill of betting till the last minute of the match.
