Increased stakes formula
« on: Tue, 09 September, 2014, 22:24 »
Hi,
I'm not one for staking plans however I would like to test out a theory.
I'd like to increase stakes by 10% each time a bet is placed on an event.
example:
Nadal  1.8    5.00
Nadal  2.1    5.50
Nadal  1.9    6.05
etc.
Is there a formula for this ? can someone please point me in the right direction.
Merci

hi
the simple way is to use the bet history.
in the amount box     IF(hist_1_backa>0,hist_1_backa*1.10,(your stake amount  or your stake variable))
change the backa to laya for lay betting.

Hi mcbee,
Thanks for the formula.
Here's what I'd like to do. A little more advanced than I earlier described.
I have 2 trigger blocks, one for Fav and one for Second Fav.
Bets as follows:The amount formula is only for the 2Fav
2Fav trigger 1st bet  4.00  2nd bet 10.00 subsequent bets 10% higher than previous bet
Fav  trigger  all bets 10.00
The triggers fire alternatively.
example
Nadal   2.30    4.00
Murray 1.70    10.00
Nadal   2.16    10.00
Murray  1.62    10.00
Murray   2.40    11.00
Nadal   1.50    10.00
Nadal     2.10    12.10
Murray   1.20    10.00
Nadal     3.60    13.31
The formula would need to ignore player as it is fav or 2fav related.
I started work on the below formula but needs quite a bit of modification.
 IF(hist_1_backa>0,10+hist_1_backa*1.10,4)
Thanks again mcbee

Hi mcbee,

The formula you supplied "hist_backa" is for betting from settled markets.
I am wanting to apply a staking method on one single event.
How do we reference back bets from the same event ?
Thanks

Hi,
If 'hist' is used for setted markets, what is used for unsettled ones (in-play) ?
bm_backa relates to last back amount matched.
What is code for 2nd last back amount matched ?
I cannot find this in the manual.
Thanks as always

Hi

Can only imagine it is bm_backa2  or there isn't one

bu_backa is the last unmatched

Hi
for a selection:
bm_1_backa
bm_2_backa
bm_3_backa
where 1 is the last, 2 is the second last, 3 is the third last etc.

Sounded logical.
Can I add s_1 or s_2 to differentiate which player to use ?
example:

Nadal   1.60    5.00
Nadal   2.50    7.00
Murray 3.20    3.60
Nadal   1.80    7.20
Murray 2.10    5.00

s_1_bm_1_backa       =   7.20
s_2_bm_2_backa       =   3.60
where s_1 equals Nadal and s_2 equals Murray. 
Thanks Mark.

s_2_bm_2_backa       =   3.60
where s_1 equals Nadal and s_2 equals Murray.

Hi Mark,
If I wanted to refer to the FAV before the off and to place a formula in the amount box what formula could I use ?
Let's say I want to place a back bet on a tennis player and the amount depends on whether the player was Fav before the off.
IF Fav at start then 10.00 otherwise 20.00
=IF(last_order=1,10,20) or similar. Please advise
Many thanks
