Removing Scroll bar

June 8, 2020
Quote: Originally Posted by Bog What monitor size and screen resolution do you have? You don't need to remove the scroll bar to have more runners. You can use smaller font size or 2-3 ladder rows.

Absolutely doesnt matter how many ladders i display, if its more than 15 runners it will start lagging and 20 or more is its big lag no matter how slow the refresh times.
If I bet on a race or a tournament win market with more than 20 runners, I can display just one and have the exact same lag, it seems all other runners are loaded and refreshed at the same rate regardless o if they are displayed or not.
I have 32GB Ram, high end gaming computer, fibre internet, but is just nothing I can do to prevent lag if there are more than 15 runners.
Only setting that helps a bit is the Price refresh but even then I can set it to 1second and still get lag the more runners there are.
Can anyone confirm they dont have lag when trading markets with more than 15 outcomes? Anything to do about it?
Also back to the original question, can I not edit the settings code and set the width of the scroll bar to 0? Ive been changing the width of all the other columns to the minimum like that but not found a setting for scroll bar?

Take SP Shortcut

June 4, 2020
Hi There,

I dont think there is but it's worth asking, is there a keyboard shortcut for switching the unmatched bets to Take SP?

I know you can right click or click on the unmatched bet itself, but I wondered if there is a quick toggle for it.

The Greyhounds are so erratic, I want to place my entry trades without SP and all exit trades with SP so a keyboard shortcut would be great.


Entering log in details three times to open GT

May 30, 2020

For some time now i have needed to enter my login details three times (with Authenticator App) just to open GT.

Here is what i experience:

1) I select GT icon to open
2) Log in screen appears to enter Betfair Username and Betfair Password (GT 1.4p). Operation mode Live
3) I enter my Betfair details
4) Screen states Logging in to Betfair at the top left of screen
5) Screen also shows betfairs login screen requesting Username and password.
6) I enter details and select Login
7) I enter the verification code from my Google Authenticator app.
8) Screen then changes to show Logging in to Betfair at the top left of screen with betfairs home screen displayed.
9) I then need to enter Username and password again and select log in.
10) I again need to enter the verification code from my Google Authenticator app.
11) Finally, GT loads and is able to be used.

Also, in recent weeks i have experienced freezes of 3-5 seconds on GT. Everything freezes including the ladder and ability to select any items although this may be unrelated.

Any suggestions welcome to resolve either issue.


Sports Statistics

May 28, 2020
Gambling is either sports betting or instant games like those on mr bet no deposit bonus codes and both of them require luck and while sports betting can be more in control of the gambler as compared to the instant games but then there is a huge edge usually associated like 10-15% edge and the ability to analyse sports matches is almost like 5-10% and the other 90% is mostly luck and hence there is nothing you can learn in gambling or being a experienced gambler gives no advantage apart from anger management and other benefits.

Horse Racing in OZ

May 15, 2020
Another weekend is upon us as we struggle with Covid-19 rules and regulations in Australia. We have six States and two territories here and they all have different rules and regulations about what you can and can't do. For example the Northern Territory is returning to normal....well as close as you can to normality considering you cant fly to an international port, and there are no normal interstate planes conveying passengers around the country. And if you leave the Territory then you are subject to lock-down and self isolation rules so best move if you are a Territorian is to stay put and enjoy a beer at your favourite pub or club, which is something the populace of other States and Territories cant do. Racing in the Territory has continued as normal at Fannie Bay and Pioneer Park, so the quality aspects of life which include a beer and a bet are now freely available. Pity the rest of us have to put up with a host of confusing rules that seem to change almost daily and our televisions give us talking heads who tell us the new amended rules in each State which simply confuses many, including yours truly. Needless to say if you break any of the rules you are facing a four figure sum if you are caught so you need to double check what you can and can't do so you don't incur a size-able penalty.
Racing in Australia continues in all States except Tasmania. Don't ask why Tasmania is the exception because no one seems to know why, except its a good example of the inconsistency of the lock-down laws!
The punt hasn't been kind this week. Have had 23 bets for 5 wins, 6 seconds and 2 thirds, and 10 unplaced.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you as the UK struggles with what is a devastating virus that has resulted in large numbers of deaths. Lets hope that this ends quickly and we also discover a suitable and effective vaccine speedily.
As usual the early selections will be posted on here and these will be updated, changed etc etc as the late mail and scratchings are known.
May your punting day be a winning one.

To know advance match prediction or tosses?

May 12, 2020
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 from your home without feeling uncomfortable.

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

No Racemeter on AUS horse races

UK races are in furlongs and miles, other races are in meters. IP graph is not compatible IMHO.

Last Sixty Seconds Traded

April 30, 2020
Hey, hope someone can help me with this.
I have newest geekstoy version and selected Traded Volume Type -- Bars as described and tried all different amount of seconds for the last traded Bar History setting but none of them show any bars, just white background instead of the light green/ dark green bars. I attached a picture.
It doesnt seem to do with the colour scheme manager either as i tried different colours for everything.
Even when I load older settings i cant get any bars. Any idea what the problem could be?

Maximum Bank Drawdown

March 31, 2020
Hi all,

here's one for discussion.

During the absence of racing I, like many others I'm sure, have been looking at new strategies based on my accrued data.

One of the pre-race strategies (profitable) showed a drawdown of 149 ticks (I use ticks as my measure for strategies) over one period. How does this compare with other peoples strategies?

cheers, MC
