Market manipulation is happening in earnest possibly.

It's ok - I've just looked at the place market on the next greyhound race on Purple - it's only 300% overround - Get on!!! :D

I think Purple must use BF markets to 'stimulate' their markets as all the liquidity disappears when BF is down - one would expect the opposite i.e. BF players move to purple - but that doesn't appear to happen - anyone able to theorise why?

My fav joke from the good old days when you could bet your life on the 3pm Saturday Crash every week:

Phone call to Betfair from a Distributed Denial of Service Attacker: "Ok Mr Betfair, pay us a million pounds or we will hit you with a DDOS attack and crash your site, making it completely unusable at all of your busiest times!"

Betfair response: "Feck off - we've got an IT team that can do that for a fraction of the price!" Laugh

There have been a lot of ransomware attacks lately but mainly against schools and colleges. Not entirely but mainly.

Without knowing what is going on, you'd have to wonder if people working from home is also a factor in causing delays, if for instance they need to get someone to drive to a datacentre.

Its a lot of betfair users using bots trying to scalp prices across both exchanges.

makes sense Pulio - thanks - I'm amazed there's no good competition to BF - surely someone can do better than this - shall I get some good devs to knock something up?
