Horse Racing in OZ

October 15, 2020
Saturday's racing in Oz this week includes one of our best time honoured races on the calendar in the running of the Caulfield Cup. This is a race with a long history as it was first run in 1879 over a mile and a half and tomorrow it be slightly shorter at 2400m in keeping with the modern day metric system which Australia adopted in 1979. Favourite is the well performed local horse Verry Elleegant which has edged out the English invader Anthony Van Dyck as the latter drew the visitors barrier in 21. The race will be the highlight of the days program.
There are two subjects that have been well aired on here apart from Horse Racing and they are matters to do with Covid-19 and Betfairs so called "delay".
Here are updates on both subjects:
COVID-19. The Sorry saga of Hotel Quarantine Security in Victoria.
Australia's death rate from Covid is just 904 of which 816 are from the State of Victoria. Of these 816 deaths in Victoria the average age of those that died was 85. So it doesn't take Einstein to work out here that there are many cases where it was simply assumed that Covid was the cause when the reality was that it was a multitude of other factors at play here which are common when you are dealing with folk in aged care environments.
There has been a Judicial Enquiry in Victoria into why the bulk of the deaths in Victoria appear to have been caused by the virus that escaped from those who were in Quarantined in two Victorian Hotels in the heart of Melbourne. The Enquiry to date has cost $6m and has failed to answer the simple question of who approved the issuance of a Security Contract to a firm called Unified Security for three months at a cost of $30m. The firm incidentally was not on Victoria's list of approved clients. Now think about this. Here we have a decision made on the run to give a mammoth contract to an unknown firm. The firm on hearing of their windfall immediately emailed all of their employees and prospective employees that they must undertake a 10 minute induction program (tick and flick) exercise and once they had done that they could then turn up for work.
We now know through contact tracing that the resultant debacle in terms of security was the major reason for Victoria's covid failure and why Victoria's death figures are sky high in comparision to other States.
Of course the sad story here is that Victoria is still in serious lockdown and the economy has been devastated...all apparently because of a dodgy security contract.

BETFAIR DELAY: This subject has been well covered by recent contributions by PDC and Temujin so if you want the history here just scroll back to pages 39 and 40 and read their thoughts and contributions to this "story".
I note that the so called Betfair delay has been raised once more by the Twitter twitterers with suggestions that here in Australia the delay in certain areas is as much as 7 to 8 seconds. The concern of course is that this opens a window of opportunity for unscrupulous folk to place a bet. Think what tennis attendees were doing during critical match points until the authorities woke up to what was happening and banned them. Also we know that scouts/observers/opportunists were posted at race meetings here with laptops or mobile devices that could post a bet just as the race began or in running. If a horse missed the start, or a leader dropped off the pace up the home straight then one could take advantage of such if you were quick. Betfair have once again confirmed that all races are closed off within one second of the jump and the issue is not at their end. Jump on Twitter if you want to know more.

betting strategy's ?

When it comes to casino gambling, here are my tips:

1. You should always limit your budget. Keep the limit in such a way that if you lose all of it, it won't be a big problem to you.

2.I am not sure why one would be afraid and why authorities would arrest you for gambling. If its not legal, then don't gamble at all. You can gamble at 우리카지노 from your home without feeling uncomfortable.

3. All gambling games does not depend only on skills. It also depends on your luck!

Last Traded Bar History Colour

October 8, 2020
Does anyone know if it is possible to change the colour of the Last Traded Bar History on the ladder? The default is dark green on light green and I wouldn't min changing the LTBH colour to something that sticks out more?

Bets keep STUCK and money has been LOST

Just keep an eye on Twitter using the search function for "Betfair".

Tweetdeck was recommended to me for this as you can have a column permanently for this purpose allowing you to quickly check when you think you might have an issue.

"Run as administrator" on exe file prevented this error. Can be windows 10 related. First time seeing this. Yesterday everything was OK. If nobody experiencing same thing, probably not a geeks problem...

toy performance issues?

September 14, 2020
Hello

Do anyone have performace issues when using the toy?

My case is with a good computer, when I open multiple market ladders, like 4 or more, the toy becomes slow and laggy, taking seconds to move a ladder when I want, doing it choppy instead of a fluid movement, sometimes takes 2 seconds before submitting a bet by clicking the ladder, etc

I doubt it's because the computer, as I have a 5820K hexacore, 16gb of ram, a decent GPU and the cpu is never at 100% nor the ram full.

any more?

Thanks for taking the time to reply, yeh that’s what I did previously but I just found it a bit faffy

I have my screen setup perfectly so the GT live video window pops up neatly in place and it was just so simple and quick

It’s frustrating it still doesn’t work after months 😕
