In-play bets voided. Anyone notice any issues? I thought it went in-play fine.

Was a while before it was put in play, but it did eventually go in play.

Races 3 and 4 the stream hasn't been working for me. Just the test screen.

It went in-play after a minute apparently, the race would've taken nearly 2 mins. Some they leave, some they void, it's a minefield and the rule is very unclear/ambiguous.

If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair does not suspend the market at the time of the “off” (so unmatched bets are not cancelled at that time), but the market is intentionally turned in-play at a later time during the event, all bets matched after the official time of the “off” will stand, except for Australian Horse Racing, where all bets matched after the “off” but before the point in time that Betfair turns the market in-play, will be void.

this was the case, it didn't turn itself in-play by magic.

yes, feed down for races 3 and 4 for me too, yet betfair knew the offs and put them in-play, you couldn't make it up!

Yes, it was definitely in play for some duration of the race.

I tend to never put any money in to a market until it's in play then "I believe" I'm at least on a level playing field and not guessing.

I did notice a race (not US) the other day that was never put in play but was fully settled. So they're inconsistent at best anyway.

If it's not put in-play I accept in-running should be voided.

But DD R.1, I didn't notice anything wrong, in fact there wasn't in the sense the money matched in play was 'keep bets' or new money, they had the BSP reconciliation when it was put in-play etc. Unsatisfactory yet again.
