PROFESSIONAL gambler Robert Moore yesterday ended his betting dispute with the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club. He said the club's betting division has broken new ground by allowing him to open several accounts, all in his own name. Mr Moore, a New Zealander, makes his living by betting on the horses from his hi-tech office overlooking Happy Valley racecourse. He had threatened legal action when his betting account was temporarily frozen during the meeting on February 11 after it reached the $21 million limit which the Jockey Club operated on telephone accounts. Yesterday, Mr Moore said: 'I have created history. The Jockey Club finally got back to me to say I would be allowed to open other accounts in my own name. 'I have done everyone a favour, opening the way for others to have more than one account.' He said he had dropped plans to sue the club. Mr Moore had said the $21 million limit and the automatic account freeze were a restriction on his right to trade and freely earn a living. 'You can't tell the man in the street that his account has been frozen because he's won too much money,' Mr Moore said. Henry Chan, the club's director of betting, yesterday interrupted vital meetings prior to leaving for the United States with incoming club supremo Lawrence Wong, to intervene in the case. Mr Chan refused to comment specifically but it is understood the Jockey Club has broken with traditional betting rules. 'We do not discuss individual telephone betting accounts but as a general rule the vast majority of people only need one account,' he said. The $21 million limit on telephone betting accounts was written into the Jockey Club's betting software when it was originally designed about 10 years ago.
