Fórum Português / Após longa ausência... VOLTEI
« Last post by pcal72 on 13 Jul 2022, 14:22 »
Olá a todos

Passaram-se já uns longos meses desde o meu ultimo post ou atividade. ::)

Na realidade já passou quase um ano!! :o

Finalmente posso dizer a todos que voltei para ajudar, colaborar, partilhar e aprender também com todos vocês em comunidade.

Espero que na minha ausência tenham tido excelentes experiencias.

Algumas coisas mudaram na minha vida e por isso a minha disponibilidade não será a mesma, mas quero que saibam que estarei por cá para colaborar com todos.

Forte abraço a todos e boas apostas!

Triggered betting / Re: Trainer trigger format

Hi rubold
selections trigger expression FIND("Easterby", "silk_trainer") is greater than 0
and selections trigger expression FIND("Easterby", "silk_jockey") is greater than 0
will work

but as shakeshuck points out, I had a look at flatstats T/J combinations:
T D Easterby trainer has had same surname jockeys: Miss E Easterby, Mr W Easterby
so it's not conclusive

Wow Mark, so can that expression find the trainer surname and the jockey surname and thus determine if they are the same.  I put in an official trigger request for this about a year ago, but was told it couldn't be done.

One small problem I forsee with this is on those occasions (like with Mr Easterby) when there are multiple trainers with the same surname; it is possible of course that if they are from the same family this may not affect your strategy.

Hi If you are manually looking for trainer names spelling as per Betfair API, put MFP in Full Mode or Race Mode and read the trainer name from the silks data. A trigger could also write this data to a text file for future reference. Variations I've seen on example trainer: Tim Easterby, TD Easterby, Timothy D Easterby etc... my suggestion here would be to use the FIND function on the surname only: FIND("Easterby", "silk_trainer") is greater than 0

Triggered betting / Small bets
« Last post by shakeshuck on 12 Jul 2022, 11:49 »
Had a glitch yesterday (only in test mode!). I had a small bet to go on (a lay), but it looks as though the lay part didn't get taken and the back bet did. Is there a way to stop this happening in future? If I use lay_price2 will the corresponding back bet still be put on correctly?

Thanks Mark.

Typical of BetFair to make things more complicated than they need to be...!

Thanks Mark - logging the trigger expressions has shown me what's wrong; it is the name format.

I am now confused, though - I thought I'd read that I should be using Betfair's names; I had taken the names from what appears when you hover the cursor over the horse name on the exchange. These are apparently not the correct ones. Where should I be looking to get the correct Jockey/Trainer names?

Troubleshooting / Re: Strange auto-greenup

Hello,

Could you please check the price of bet placed (you can find it in the program log), not matched.
In real mode especially in-play different matched price changes the proportion.
Unfortunately software can base its calculations on the price it's got but it could change rapidly after bet sending...
