Matched / Unmatched Bets Windows
« on: Fri, 10 September, 2010, 14:38 »
My bets – which are posted successfully – do not appear in either the unmatched or matched bet windows on the right hand side of the mf pro screen.

Then, after the horse race has finished, but before the event has been settled, they appear in the matched window. If they are not matched I never see them. The Statement is then updated once the event is settled and the bets vanish.

I am not sure how long this has been going on – I am usually out all day at work but earlier this week I had the opportunity to watch a race or two and see how mf pro operated.

I am using mf pro in test mode, have the latest version installed (and the previous version on a laptop – same thing happens) and whilst I have made some changes to the Settings I have not made wholesale amendments to the default.

Anyone else have this problem?

Indeed, I am not sure if it is a problem – as long the bets are being matched and the Statement being updated – but I would feel better if the unmatched/matched bet windows were populated prior to the start of the event.

Thanks.

75.

Hi 75 again
In "settings" under the "betting options" tab check to make sure you have update list of bets options ticked for “update  bets individually” and “simultaneously while refreshing the market”
That should solve the problem

Hi Betfair Winner
Many thanks - spot on.
Interestingly, with the latest version, I have been trying to lay at SP - the triggers fire bets in at 1.01 and if unmatched - which of course they will be - then the trigger is set to take SP.
So now the unmatched bets appear in the lower window...waiting...waiting...and: sometimes they become matched at SP and sometimes not. Bizarre. More work to be done in understanding all this....

Hi 75  Again
Getting matched at Sp is perhaps one of the most confusing aspects to new subscribers to MF pro. Since Betfair have very definate criteria before allowing an SP bet to be matched.
Rule 1
You will not get matched in test or live at less than £2 stake for a SP back bet
Rule 2
You will not get matched in test or live for a SP lay bet IF THE LIABILITY OF THE BET IS LESS THAN £10. So putting £2 to get matched at SP when laying, will not get you matched at SP.
so when choosing to get matched at sp make sure you meet these two criteria or otherwise no bet!
