Manged to dodge the PC for about 10 years through early betting activities, but now it has finally caught up to me.

Just been slugged 4200, needless to say, looking for better options where I can bet without employing half the staff.

Weird Error - Please help ASAP

June 30, 2020
Still really bad today.Turned streaming prices off now but can i ask what api settings are people running with streaming
prices turned off.My response time is around 345, does that sound normal

betting strategy's ?

"predicting percentages" is the difficult part here. It depends on which sport you are targetting, but if you are looking at horses I would give up now... the market is so sentiment driven you're likely to find it extremely hard to predict the percentage.

An easier way to find value would be to look at the BSP in conjunction with prices bookies are offering. Explained well in this video...

Temujins Victorian Greyhound Thread

June 28, 2020
Been playing around with some ratings for Victorian greyhounds.

These are purely computer generated, and sometimes throw up some interesting numbers. Either way, going to document my ratings.
These are not for betting on, and I make no claims about their accuracy.
Will call this a hypothetical, to document, perhaps create discussion. My betting strategy (call it hypothetical) will be lay under, back over, so betting on every runner. Have a stake (say 200) divided by odds of ratings, that is the bet. ie rated 2.00, odds 10.00 available, 100 dollars on the nose. etc

Trading other things today, so missed the first part of the card.

But Sale today, Race 8 in 4 minutes. Probably do full card in future, but just to get in before they jump.... Work it out as I go.

Still working on how to generate the odds, but usually don't get such standouts, but see how it goes.

As I said, doing other things so not betting, will set up a comparison of results, SP and hypothetical betting position later.

Winging it.

Greening button on ladder malfunction with stake too low.

June 27, 2020
Most of the time with the new version, I got the "stake too low" when I just try to green/red on the ladder side button with all the stake I had on that side.

Yesterday I layed 125x2 at 2.06, when I tried to hit the button to automatically back 250 at 2.16 I had a "stake too low"

right now, I layed 89 at 1.36, 43 at 1.45 and 138 at 1.51, when I tried to green moments later at 1.55 got the same problem "stake too low".

I am trying to throw a bet of over 200 euros, so there is something there broken as it is not a limit problem.

as of now, the side button of the ladder is useless as doesn't work most of the times.

Stake too small

June 23, 2020
Recently, betfair made changes that affect bets below the betfair minimum.

These changes have stopped some stake & odds combinations from being accepted by betfair.

If you try and submit one of the combinations, the software will show a "STAKE TOO SMALL" error.

for example 0.02 @ odds of 1.7 will show "STAKE TOO SMALL"

a sample of stake & odds that are allowed .....

0.01 1.80 and up
0.02 1.40 -> 1.62 & 1.80 and up
0.03 1.27 and up
0.04 1.20 and up
0.05 1.16 -> 1.24 & 1.32 and up
0.06 1.14 -> 1.21 & 1.27 and up
0.07 1.12 -> 1.17 & 1.23 and up
0.08 1.10 -> 1.15 & 1.20 and up
0.09 1.09 -> 1.13 & 1.18 and up
0.10 1.08 -> 1.12 & 1.16 and up

0.11 1.08 -> 1.11 & 1.15 and up
0.12 1.07 -> 1.10 & 1.14 and up
0.13 1.07 -> 1.09 & 1.13 and up
0.14 1.06 -> 1.08 & 1.12 and up
0.15 1.06 -> 1.08 & 1.11 and up
0.16 1.05 -> 1.07 & 1.10 and up
0.17 1.05 -> 1.07 & 1.10 and up
0.18 1.05 -> 1.06 & 1.09 and up
0.19 1.05 -> 1.06 & 1.09 and up
0.20 1.04 -> 1.06 & 1.08 and up

Betfair - New version 1.4x released

June 23, 2020
just heard back from betfair.

They first told us we had to convert from local currency to GbP to test for unfair rounding.
Now they are saying NOT to convert to GBP, but to test with local currency.

Will require a new build.

Issues Hedging Up

June 20, 2020
I dont know why the image is so small :/

You cannot bet less than $4 !!!

Would have been nice if they had of told us of this BEFORE rolling it out, as it has affected hedging for everyone.

So far, there has been no response from betfair about this.

We are now looking into what we can do to work around this situation created by betfair.
Crazy that they can just change things without saying anything! Couldn't hedge my possitions yesterday, will it be the same today?

Can anyone help?

June 16, 2020
Have you tried sending them an email? They don't check the forum that often I think so best to email support directly to raise issues.

Market not loading

June 15, 2020
Sorry to hear that. It's still working for me and it's the only way I can load the races that don't show up under the Horses tab in Market Navigator. I'll report back if I find anything else that might help.
