Scalpy by Psychoff

Very interesting project, I did not think that to predict sports events, you can create a fully automated program that can predict the outcome of matches. Although I think if you constantly review and monitor it, the results can be promising

Ladder set up

August 8, 2017
I hope someone may be able to help me. Whenever I open Geekstoy then open the Ladder Section the quick pick stake buttons have changed from what I had previously set them. I put them in a numerical order then save it in the Custom Profile section. However, as I said here when I open it the next time I use it they have been repopulated with different monetory values. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm back!

August 7, 2017

I don't know how long I've been out of the game but I've had problems with .Net Frameworks for months and been unable to log in to GT. Last night I finally got round to updating to W10 and guess what? GT works again!

Market informaion bar.

August 2, 2017
Hello GT.

Is it possible to make Market information bar shorter? There are a lot of text in this bar and when you open it, it closes all other tabs. This tab is important for AUS market traders, they shows Commission & Market Base Rate.


July 30, 2017
Hi I'm a newbie to the forum and GT.
My problem is that I used to have all markets showing in the menu at top left but for some reason, I now only have horse races and I have failed to discover how to get them all back.
Any help appreciated

I tried. Still the same.


L.E. - FIXED. I did a clean install and now markets are loading. I don't know if this is the solution, but for me it worked

Ditto here. I see there's been a problem with Betfair this afternoon - almost certainly something at their end.

Footage of the markets during the ultra rare event of a stall not opening yesterday

July 22, 2017
Hi guys it's been a long time... Hope everyone is well.

Description taken from youtube:
For those that weren't in the markets at the time, this is how the absolute carnage that was the 13:40 Newbury traded on 21st July, 2017.

I had no intention of sharing this recording beforehand and it's directly taken from my archives unedited. That means you'll have to forgive my girly laugh that's in there somewhere...

Thought I'd share this as it's pretty funny watching me trying to figure out what was going on in real time. I feel genuinely sorry for any in-play punters who got absolutely roasted here (you can see the money come even before the monkey comes and presses the big button labeled 'press when in-play').

I can only assume the layers held their bets at all prices and are thanking their lucky stars because you'd have to have some mental fortress in place to hedge there, not even sure it would be the plus EV play.

This rare event took place just one day after the drama at Killarney where a horse was led in and allowed a huge lead, with no false start. All bets were voided 20 minutes after the finish (I'm still pissed at that one).

Follow my twitter. I'll be setting up a blog at some point later in the year (primary focus: my own personal progress and horse racing trading in general)

Hey devs, where are you?

Slow opening of big markets

July 20, 2017

I updated my win8 to win 8.1 and i am having annoying issue with the toy at the moment.

When i am making a right click at the any market's header, the popping up menu appears much slower than before (about 2 seconds)
If i select another market for e.g. Correct score with many selections it could be opening for 4-6 seconds.

Every other thing is flying well and quickly. Version of toy is the last available. What could it be?
