unless i have gone bonkers overnight i cannot understand or believe what i have just seen in the lassies cricket match...

'someone' was wanting to lay Oval Invincibles at 1.45 for £54k...

yet there was absolute peanuts wanting to back Northern Superchargers between 3.0 and 4.0...

why is the x-matching BOT not reflecting the £54k lay on the other side of the market...????

very very strange if you ask me...

and if this happens in cricket then it will be happening on other sports...

and not just when a horse is withdrawn late on before it can be taken out of the market.

AvB market...

you want to lay A at 1.5 for £50k...

so that MUST mean you want to back B at 3.0 for £25k...

but it appears that's not the way it works...

how astonishing...

(well i thought it was at least).

Surely - Cross-Matcher ONLY matches Money that Is Already IN the Market

What do you want Betfair to do .... CREATE £25,000 'out of thin air' - on the 'to Back' side?

northern superchargers...

3.0 (£498) in the blue box...3.05 (£53) in the pink box followed by 3.65 (£3) then 8 (£3)...

oval invincibles...

1.45 (£53475) in the blue box...1.46 (£5) in the pink box followed by 1.47 (£11) then 1.48 (£644)...

anyone who can explain that to me is a miracle worker.

Calm down - Hibby ...


NOW - You are saying .... "£54k that had already been MATCHED"


BUT ...

Your OPENING STATES -  STATES ...


'someone' was WANTING TO LAY  Oval Invincibles at 1.45 for £54k...


Thus - Creating confusion.

onlooker...

i don't need to calm down...

YOU are not understanding what i am saying...

at no stage did i say the 54k had already been matched.

i said 'someone' was wanting to lay it...

therefore it should have been reflected on the other side of the market.

not sure you understand the concept in all honesty.

And you didn't make it clear that you were talking
about in play.

Someone wanted to lay 1.45 for £54K and it showed £54K at 1.45 on the screen.

If yiou're complaining aqout this you must be one sad f*cker.

In simple markets, is there any point in creating the "opposite" bets?  Although I suppose if someone wanted to lay the 3 in your 1.5/3 example it would get matched.

dave...

the point is...

if it happens in 'simple' markets as you put it...

it can happen in not so 'simple' markets...

like a 12 runner 6f handicap where they all run.

current mens match...

northern superchargers blue box 1.96 for £13333

oval invincibles pink box 2.06 for £12686...

which is more or less what it should be...

so what happened earlier on with the lassies match....????
Report dave1357 July 31, 2021 6:32 PM BST
you don't know if that's cross matching
Report dave1357 July 31, 2021 6:34 PM BST
And my point is that in a simple market cross matching doesn't really add anything, in a more complex market it would.

Think you get the choice whether to x match on gruss, dont see why you wouldnt.

I can't find a 2 runner market where it isn't on.

I fail to understand the hysterical reaction we have here when it may have been switched off for a very minor
cricket match.
Report HappyHibby July 31, 2021 7:29 PM BST
it may have been switched off

---------------------------------

so if it 'may' have been switched off...

the Q has to be...

WHY was it switched off...?

and it wasn't a minor cricket match...

it was live on sky sports and there was best part of £2million matched on the game at the time.

nice try to deflect tho JML...

10 out of 10 for effort.

The XM option on gruss is not in your hands. Ticked or not you get best price execution.

Hib - as we discussed a few weeks back, it definitely isn't always in operation, the reasons for which are not clear (not impossible it considers site-wide server load before deciding whether it can cope or not?).

Think it was the Hundred match last night that did about £30m.

My mistake---the Womens hundred is major lge cricket.

3.0 (£498) in the blue box...3.05 (£53) in the pink box followed by 3.65 (£3) then 8 (£3)...

That doesn't sound like a busy market to me.

Best thing to do is to calm down and take a photo if it happens again.
