Remember bets trigger
« on: 04 Feb 2015, 13:47 »
Hi,

Is it possible to write a trigger to remember what bets were placed ?
and if the bets won or lost ?
Thanks

Hi,

Seemingly it is not possible to track a bet by its id, so I think the answer to "if it won or not" is no.

Hi
The Betfair statement provides individual bet win/lose data which is downloadable to Excel.
Settings > General Options > Account Statement > Retrieve data <date range or day range>
Settings > Excel > Export Account Statement to this sheet

Now you have the data you can analyse it in Excel or write trigger conditions using Excel-bound variables.

Another option is to record a finite number of bets in user variables and compare them to the previous event's winner index. I believe mcbee has done work on this. Search forum for: pw_1_sel_index

It is be possible! For each trigger you record the odds in a variable (or the betamount)! Then you use the variable to check in the history. I suppose it is easier to controll the bet amount becouse you can add a decimal, that is unic for each trigger (then you know by looking at hist_X_backa what trigger who made the bet)

check the history:

profit/loss is checked by:  hist_X_pl

odds is checked with:  hist_X_backp

amount is checked with:  hist_X_backa

Don't start with 15 trigger start with 3 to try the consepts or maybe 2  :)

Hi Mark
Thank for your search link for mcbee's posts. I will have a look this coming week.
Haven't seen you on here in a while, I didn't realise it took so long to count your end of year's profits. :)

Hi tupp,
Thanks for your suggestion, I plan to look at this next week. There must be a way of recording bets and dividends of past races.
Cheers

Racepro -  I am using the variable hist_X_time to keep track of record-times, I suppose it could be useful for you.
