Somebody's filling the innings runs market with £50 back orders at 11, hoping you misread it as 1.1. :lol:

Trap orders happen a lot - I tend t think these people are absolute scum, but Betfair wont intercede - so maybe its just me.

As a result - or at least partially, the mkts are now a shadow of what they were.

The runs mkts are now HUGE on an Indian site.

Are they scum though?

I've seen a Peter Webb video openly showing the power of BA Automation for catching fat fingers!

We've all seen disastrous spikes being matched, purely through human error or a misfiring bot.

I don't see how BF can be expected stop that

At the end of the day it's a free market and previously people sticking up crap prices just encouraged others to price them out until the market hit some reasonable overround for the market makers. Trouble is Betfair decided to take those market makers margains for themselves with the x-matcher so all those wannabe market makers left along with their liquidity and only the chancers remain to price up.

There's just far too many illiquid markets on Betfair these days they should simply drop them.

Before the days of in-running betting, 1.01 trap orders were illegal and Betfair reserved the right to close your account if you indulge in them. Now it's no longer fowl play with people hoping to get matched IR.

New cricket match view, shows you where the ball's gone. I'm not happy with the innings runs P/L chart being moved from below the bet list to above the market, reducing the vertical length of the market viewing area.
