Shortcut key for bet persistence

15. August 2018 - 14:17
Hey forum,

I trade right before the off and have to then decide quickly if I need to take start price, keep bet or cancel bet as bet persistence. on pretty much every market.
I messed up too often now and cost me too much money to right click every time and select the right action.

How do I create a hotkey for bet persistence please, I know its possible to change some settings by editing the text files of geekstoy in program data/settings, but how do I add custom hotkeys that aren't in the shortcut key manager?

Very important, any advice please??

Ive got the house up for sale and i dont think the bank manager is gonna lend me anymore if i say i trade on bf for a living. Ill have to postpone it till i sell i think No hope on that front. In the UK the banks don't view betting as income, even if you've got tens of thousands coming in each month.

Which fan for the office?

7. August 2018 - 13:38
I would like to get a fan which is quiet and does not disturb for our new office. The room should be ventilated evenly, so that no one dies of heat, while another gets frostbite. :D How did you solve this with you? Which pedestal fans can you recommend

Last shot!

Impressive results! Can i have some question about it?
Do you trade every race?
Are them often suspended before the offtime?
Do you use any website like racingpost to research which one to trade?

Shifted start time in soccer coupons

4. August 2018 - 22:23
Does anyone experience issue with shifted start time in soccer coupons? Example: Vejle vs Midtjylland real start 19:00. The Toy showing 20:00. On market open it counts from wrong time 20:00. I didnt change time zone or so. This was just 1 match I found today, others were ok, but this happens often.

Hello. Go to ladder and right click on it, then go to traded volume type and click on bars. Thats it.


How the Stop loss actually works?

30. July 2018 - 14:47
Hi There,

Just a query regarding the stop loss feature and more specifically the "Place Stop At +" option.

So, if I set a Stop loss value of say 7 and a Place stop at value of 2, and then place a lay bet at 4.0 on the ladder, an orange box appears at 3.65 which is 7 ticks from my bet, which all makes sense.

If the price trades at 3.65 my stop loss will trigger and place a back bet at 3.55 (two ticks away).

My understanding is that when the stop loss trigger bet is placed at 3.55, because there is still money in the market at 3.65 it will actually get match there instead. (Better value)

Is my understanding correct? ie, if I set the "Place Stop At +" value to something stupid like say 20, it doesn't really matter as when it is triggered it will technically match at the better price of 3.65 anyway (If money is available).

I just want to understand because technically that option to place stop at is kind of irrelevant in some ways, or am i just misunderstanding and talking crap :D

I hope that makes sense.

Forumul asta a murit de tot???

Hi ,

I heard from a fellow trader that another beta is available where we can see how many seconds is the bet matching time for the ongoing football matches.

How is it possible to have the beta?

I am willing to pay if needed.

After contacting BF they just say:Unfortunately for these issues you will need to speak to them as from our end we are very limited on what we can do for this
Anyone else had/having this issue?
Anyone resolve this issue?

Stop Loss Marker

14. July 2018 - 17:15
Hi There,

Is there any way to have a stop loss marker on the ladder but no actually apply the stop loss?

As in, When I place a bet at 4.0 I would like the ladder highlighted exactly as it does when you turn on the stop loss feature, however when the market hits that price I dont want it to kick in and apply, I purely want a visual marker on the ladder.

I hope that makes sense?

Thank you.

Can it still be done?

Horse Racing in OZ

14. July 2018 - 0:18
Winter has arrived here with a vengeance. Hard to jump out of the cot this morning and throw off two doonas as the temperature was single digits. Sydney and Melbourne trackworkers had to cope with zero temps and poor old Canberra trackworkers were exposed to temps around minus 6deg Celsius.
Some tough fields around today however we will do our best to pluck out some winners.
There a couple of black bookers running around today with Widgee Turf being one of the strongest chances.
Thought Redkirk Warrior had a strong each way chance at Newmarket, just need to forget its last run.

Here are todays selections and as usual will try and update as the meetings progress.
Good luck with your investments.

R2 no 4 Josephine Sea
R5 no 3 Rillito 2nd
R6 no 3 Mount Kilcoy Won $4.20
R7 no 6 Jukebox..3rd....thought Innkeeper 2nd would be a strong place chance
R9 no 1 Widgee Turf. 2nd...danger is no 3 Theanswermyfriend.

R1 no 1 The Fire Trap Won $5.20
R2 no 4 Petra Jewel is the value bet
R3 no 10 Deft 2nd
R6 no 4 Al Galayel
R7 no 5 Chamois Road.....each way
R8 no 13 Albumin.... Won $3.80...thought no 1 Flow was a place chance
R9 no 2 High Mist.

R1 no 2 Privaka 2nd
R2 no 6 Super Sauve 3rd
R3 no 4 Tumbler Late Scr.
R4 no 5 Zoustyle Won
R6 no 1 Megablast 3rd
R9 no 1 Shogun Sun

MR4 no 16 Demolition Won $3.30. Lay bet lost
SR7 no 13 Special Missile. Ran 3rd. Lay bet won

If you work for Betfair

If you work for Betfair, let's say for example, write articles for them, there's no way Betfair would allow you to give away any information to punters that could lead them to make profits from Betfair. That would be a conflict of interests with Betfair and they would not let you work for them any more. Be careful who you listen to. If they work for Betfair, maybe, just maybe, they're trying to make money for Betfair. Stranger things have happened.
