Hi
A couple of ideas:
Only bet if the last matched back bet was made less than 4 hours ago:
selections trigger expression (now_time-bm_backtime)/mf_hour is less than 4

or record the scores with a timestamp and only bet if the scores have changed in the last hour, otherwise delete market:

TRIGGER
record market_score1 score in user variables score_var1 and score_var2
record now_time in time_var
repeat this trigger every 10 mins or so.

BETTING TRIGGER
checks market_score1 is not equal to score_var1
or checks market_score2 is not equal to score_var2
and (now_time-time_var)/mf_hour is less than 1

TRIGGER
Delete market
checks market_score1 is equal to score_var1
and checks market_score2 is equal to score_var2
and (now_time-time_var)/mf_hour is greater than 1

A quick check on the Betfair API-NG rollout shows a Tennis Scores and events API is due for release 16th June. It might incorporate info like this.

hi
you would need to create a variable to do that.
start the variable at 0 in the constants , set to remember last value.
then have a trigger to change the varaible to 1 when the first 10 minutes has gone.
your betting trigger would have
and trigger expression (variable name) is equal to 0

Hi Guys,

Thanks for those suggestions. I'm wondering if it may be worthwhile waiting for 16-Jun to see what Betfair comes up with.
mcbee's idea sounds simpler but still a bit beyond my ken.
I'll study it and if any image showing how it would look comes my way I'd much appreciate it.
Many thanks
