Ok - this has been happening for a few weeks now - and usually after a certain time which leads me to beleive it's somebody who doesn't know what they are doing....

All these US markets are getting unsuspended twice - once at the off - then a second or two later.

People are losing positions, bets disappearing etc etc etc

Theres no need and it is really starting to p1ss me off..

I hadn't noticed this, but just checked my logs and you're right. Most races are being put into play at the off and then suspended/unsuspended again about 5-7 seconds later.

is this cancelling keep bets after the second suspend?

I don't think so. But anyone with automation set to kick in right after the off might all get cancelled after the second suspend?

For me,my bets are cancelled in between suspends

tinytuco, I guessed that's what you meant , I wonder if there'll be an explanation forthcoming? Sounds like Betfair have programmed it that their offsets remain in the system to scalp the lot. Only manual players can compete.

First race at Tampa today, no double suspension.

But the second and the first @ Aqueduct both had it - How do we go about sorting this becuase Betfiar support won't have a scooby what im talking about.....

Yep, it came back for the next few races. Can't you set your bets to 'keep' or set them for 10 secs after off time?

It's not me, it's removing bets that people make in between - Yday some muppet was laying a fav - leading easily - at Sam Houston at silly prices - Went in to take a piece of it and the market unsuspended for a 2nd time.....

After the 2nd suspension the bet had gone. It had cleared it out.

It's very very annoying.

I've been told the double suspends has been due to some technical error which has now been resolved. Let's see how it goes for the rest of the evening.

tinytuco, it sounds like bets aren't getting cancelled at first suspend when they should be hence silly prices available on a leader, as was the case a couple of weeks back.

Did support tell you that Jamee? I don't know whats happenng swifty - let's hope it's resolved
Report swiftynifty April 3, 2021 7:36 PM BST
tinytuco, I said when it happened previously it opens up a whole load of integrity questions when betfair suspend/reopen/or simply suspend mid/late race with IR bets potentially cancelled, is it them having got in a bad position with their bots?
Report jamee1 April 3, 2021 7:52 PM BST
All races have been fine since. Hopefully now resolved and it was nothing more sinister than a technical error.
Report tinytuco April 3, 2021 8:05 PM BST
Yeah since jamee posted it hasn't happened - let's hope that is the end of that..........

Double unsuspend - Race 7 Hawthorne.......... It's back.....

it must be a certain operator?

I think it is a cetain operator........

I've raised it again. Hopefully they will fix it for good this time.

If it keeps happening then the people to report it to are the Gambling Commission.
Report jamee1 April 6, 2021 1:59 AM BST
I didn't notice any double suspends today. Hopefully that is the end of it.

After a month it seems they are back - I noticed a rogue one last night - but ever since Belmont finished every race at Charlestown/Lone Star/Evangeline has been unsuspended twice at the off.

Not good enough.

mismanagement of usa markets is really poor be it betfair providing incorrect fields, forgetting to put races in play or suspending at wrong times, check your exchange bets history for voiding of winning bets over three months it is always rather alot, and betfair are covered by t and cs for making mistakes and the only loser is the customer...
