Important - Please help
« on: Mon, 07 November, 2011, 16:08 »
Hi,

I want to back the favourite for £25 at the “current” best back price. , and only the “current” best price.

So lets say

There is £11 available to back the favourite at the “current” best back price of 2.02
My bet is matched for £11 at the 2.02

So now the best back price is 2.00.

I do not want to bet the remaining £14 at the price of 2.00. I only want back at the above price of 2.02, and if its only for £11 rather than the full £25 so be it.

Is this possible?

Please help.

Hi Mcbee,

I tried what you told me, it didn't work. Good thing I tried it for only £25 and not for £500 phew. At the time I placed the £25 back bet the best back price was 7.0.

Then my bet was matched as follows:

Ref: 17076799766 Bet matched:19:10 09-Nov-11 for £9.23 at price of 7.0
Ref: 17076799766 Bet matched:19:11 09-Nov-11 for £15.87 at price of 6.8

I didn’t want the 6.8 as that was not the “current” best back price when I placed the bet.

I have attached the trigger, please take a look at it, did I do something wrong?

Please help.

hi
unfortunately betfair matched your unmatched bet at a lower price, they normaly match at a higher price for backing or lower for laying,but never less than what you ask for.
i have checked the manual and it says that the back_price is the best back price offered,SO this could be the same as putting best in the box and betfair will match all the amount with the best price available.
option 1, fix the odds price with what you want.
option 2,use the cancel then back with bm_backp in the price box and 25-bm_backa in the amount box
condition
and selections back_matched is greater than 0
repeat no more often than   1 sec
this will keep canceling and placing bets until your 25 has been used up

Hi Mcbee,

I placed the above bet on the 2nd fave (i.e. I put second favourite in the selections box and not favourite) and not the fave as mentioned in my original post. Is that the reason why the trigger went all wrong? Take a look at the attached image in my previous post to see what I mean.

Thanks

Hi Mcbee,

Instead of doing

Selection's Back Ticks Dif over 1 min is equal to 0

Is it possible instead to do

Selection's Back Ticks Dif over 0.02 min is equal to 0

This way the bet should be matched at the current best back price and only the current back price.

So
Amount: £25
Price: back_price
Selection: Favourite
Condition Selection's Back Ticks Dif over 0.02 min is equal to 0

Is Selection's Back Ticks Dif over 0.02 min is equal to 0 possible?

Please help .My marketfeeder is down at the moment so there is no way of me finding out.

Thanks

I'm sorta lost...
 
  I think you 2 are nuts...

 If you wanted to back at best price only (2.02)
 why didn't you enter "back_price" into price box?

   seems logical to me!

Then if don't wish to bet at lower than 2.02

well just add to the condition

       Trigger expression back_price >= bm_backp


and if you concerned about amounts
then amount =25-back_matched

I know triggers take some time (6mths at least)
but they ain't rocket science either.

Happy punting
