simple question but i don't use 'keep' bets option that often.

when ticking 'keep' bets option the bet is kept in play but if a goal is scored and market suspended will this bet get put in again please ?

·         For markets that are scheduled to be turned in-play at the 'off', a customer can request that an unmatched exchange bet should not be cancelled when the market is turned in-play. This is done by selecting the 'At In-Play: Keep' option in the bet manager (and confirming that request) and means that the unmatched bet persists when other unmatched bets are cancelled at the start of the event.

·         As described above, when a non-runner is removed from a horseracing market it is Betfair's policy to cancel unmatched offers to lay all other horses in the market if the non-runner has a reduction factor of 2.5% or greater for win markets, or 4.0% or greater for place markets. In these circumstances offers to lay a horse with the 'At In-Play: Keep' option selected will not be cancelled. Instead the lay odds offered in place markets will be reduced in proportion with the reduction factors of any non-runner(s) and the same will apply in win markets providing the relevant non-runner has a reduction factor of at least 2.5%.

·         In the event of a late withdrawal which Betfair deems a material runner, Betfair reserves the right to cancel ALL lay 'keep' bets before turning the market in-play, if it does not have time to remove the non-runner from the market. Separately Betfair reserves the right to remove a non-runner after completion of the race. In this case any 'keep' bet placed before the off and matched in-play will remain at the original selected price.

·         Otherwise, in exceptional cases Betfair reserves the right to cancel 'keep' bets to protect customers, but the general principle is that at no point will a 'keep' bet be cancelled by Betfair unless it remains unmatched when the market is closed (for the final time) at the end of the event.

·         For the avoidance of doubt this means that (for example) when a Material Event occurs in a soccer match and other unmatched bets are cancelled before the market is reopened, a keep bet will not be cancelled.
