Triggered betting / Re: Advice please
« Last post by Wez on 22 Mar 2023, 12:53 »

this query piqued my interest because I was curious to see what happens to r_1_sel_name, etc after importing selections.

After a play, I confirmed that if you import some selections (say 3 names for a race) AND the market is being refreshed, the 3 selections become r_1_xxx, r_2_xxx and r_3_xxx

So, assuming the sort order is by back price (the default sorting order I believe) you could do the maths for the third selection using r_1_bm_backa and r_2_bm_backa,  (20-r_1_bm_backa-r_2_bm_backa),

That's why I apologise in advance!!

It's ALWAYS my stupidity.

Thanks Mark - I owe you a drink but you'll have to come to Brisbane to get it.

Please see your modified triggers attached.

Use the constants inside the file, i.e. reset_time, to adjust the trigger settings.

Make sure you've tested the triggers in Test Mode before you switch to real money.

Please note that for any trigger to perform any action, including the reset of your win/loss history, you need to be refreshing at least one market at the time. That is, if you do not have any markets that start refresh before 11:59 am, the trigger will only be able to reset the history as soon as the first market after 11:59 am starts refreshing. For example, if the first market of the day starts at 14:00, that's when the trigger will reset the win/lose history. The next time it will try to do this will be the next day on or after 11:59 am.

This fact should not affect the logic of your loss recovery though.

If you'd like to make any changes to the original trigger description, please make a new trigger request.

but there is no "match_3" for the calculation to determine the remaining amount to bet after 2 bets are in the market.

the attached screenshot shows the trigger to calculate ra
it fires as soon as there are 2 matched back bets in the market on 2 selections
ra is then the amount you want to bet in your third trigger

hope this makes sense

Hi Mark,

Close, but no cigar!

For some reason, match_3_back_matched is not recognised in the ra formula.

I tried moving the triggers around, I tried putting brackets around the match_1 and match_3 variables, but it still ignored match_3_back_matched.

I tried varying the times the bets were placed, but no luck.

In summary, bets for match_1 and match_3 were placed, but the balance bet for match_2 was always too high (by the amount placed on match_3).

I'll keep playing around with it unless you have any better ideas.

Thanks for your trouble,

Thanks Mark,

I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Only on Aussie races.

I don't think you are far off but I think you need to filter out selections with no back matched, and there should be just 2 selections with back matched. I've not tested this but give it a try:

set user variable: ra (remaining amount)
value: 20 - match_1_back_matched - match_2_back_matched

selections back matched is greater than 0
and selections trigger expression matching_number is equal to 2

then use ra as the amount in third trigger

This will probably turn into a trigger request, but while I am working out the details, could someone please help with this problem please.

I am backing three horses per race (all are imported).

I'm investing a maximum of $20 (say) per race.

First trigger - The lowest priced horse (match_1?) is backed to win $2 (say).
Second trigger - The highest priced horse (match_3?) is backed to win $15 (say).
Third trigger - The remaining horse (match_2?) is backed (at whatever price) with the balance of funds left from the $20.

So, if first bet is $8 and second bet is $5, the third bet (match_2?) will be $7.

What is the formula for the amount in that last trigger?

I have tried 20 - match_1_back_matched - match_3_back_matched and a few others, but no success.

20 - allbets_bm_amount works if all other races are settled, but it's not really satisfactory with protests or delays in settling.

If it's a simple solution I apologise, but I'd appreciate your assistance.

And if it needs a trigger request, I'm happy to submit.

I have tested the triggers you attached in a variety of horse racing and Greyhound markets.

The triggers work as expected.

Here are possible reasons why they stop placing new bets for you:

- because of the high odds you want to lay at, and consequently high liability, you run our of money after the second loss. Check for the "Insufficient funds" error in the Program Log.

- markets are deleted as soon as they are settled, which prevents the loss recovery from working correctly. Make sure you turn this setting OFF: Delete finished markets automatically in General Options. Alternatively, you can leave it turned on, but set to Delete all except 20 most recent markets.

- once the loss recovery is activated, the triggers will lay on the potential horse's only if it's price is in the range of min_odds to max_recovery_odds. It is possible that you have overlooked this constant, so its value is too low.

I hope this helps to resolve your problem. No changes to triggers are needed.
