coming up to the off for the GN [last ~8 mins] was a complete joke all traders trying to get out of their position punters not being able to bet etc. a complete mess
software wouldnt have made any difference it was betfairs problem whole site was down/slow etc.

shutthefrontdoor matched £50 @ 1000 at 'in-play take SP' for some unlucky trader(s) (and everything inbetween...)
total average was BSP 28.1

i suspect just after the off it the load/incoming requests for betfair wouldve dramatically decreased and thats when their servers were responding again


sad day today for many really, im thankful i was on a stable runner and started exiting my position just before the lag came into play, not sure what to think Confused

Its the equivalent to the national grid going down every time too many people put the kettle on. Introduce premium charge and then spend approximately 10 pence on upgrading equipment.
