all bets in a dutch trigger matched
« on: Sun, 04 October, 2009, 21:06 »
Hi Oxa
Is it possible to always make sure all bets in a dutch trigger are matched?

I have a couple of dutching triggers on horses and dogs. Here are a couple of salient items:

-   all in test mode
-   bets delayed by 2 sec
-   any unmatched bets take SP (in the Settings)
-   trigger expression matching_number > 1
-   mins to go 0.5

e.g. one trigger is supposed to work only if I can get 4 bets away; the results show that sometimes only 2 or 3 bets are matched. Very frustrating. I assume that 4 bets were fired in. I have tried with 1 min to go to give them longer to get matched but this does not seem to help.

Whilst I know that dutching involves the relationship between odds/stake, I would still like the 3rd or 4th bet to be matched regardless of the ‘correct’ odds for the stake.

Do you know how to instruct MF Pro to achieve this?

Thanks a lot.

There is no way, even theoretical, to give you a 100% guarantee that your bets will be matched. The prices on BetFair may change in the very second you are sending your bets to the exchange, and they may never return to the original values.

If there were such a way, Dutching would be a safe way of making money.

You may help to reduce the probability of your bets staying unmatched by ticking "Adjust amounts" in the Dutching trigger, but this will work only if there isn't any other bettor who places a big amount of money on the same horse and at the same price and time as you do.
Always try your triggers in Test Mode before switching to real money!

Thanks for the feedback. I think I have the ‘adjusted amounts’ box ticked but will check this evening.

Let’s say that as part of dutching trigger I wish to back a horse with odds of 6.2 at £22.61; just as this is fired in by MF Pro the odds shorten to 6.0. They never reach 6.1 again, and the BFSP is settled at 5.9 (say).

Is it possible to write a condition such the unmatched £22.61 amount is staked on the BFSP?

Cheers

Certainly. There is a special drop-down list in each betting trigger for that purpose, titled "At In-Play". Select the "take SP" option for your Dutching trigger.

This only works for markets supporting SP of course.
