Thanks for that, hopefully the authorities will start to look into the unfair advantage some seem to have. Luckily the Aus authorities take it more seriously than the useless UK counterparts. The 7 seconds mentioned doesn't surprise me at all.

Great News- it was discussed in this thread very in depth and hopefully the in play markets can return to the "normal" of 6 months ago.

Didn't expect the main stream media to pick up on this story. Reasonably well written too considering the relatively obscure content.

No comment from Betfair isn't a great look. I'm pretty sure Paddy Power and Crown employees are working remotely now so wouldn't be a stretch to see them have a couple of mates crowded around a second monitor while they are managing markets. No one would ever know. In hindsight Betfair getting their hands on the real time feed is the worst thing that could have happened. Don't think the in-play will ever recover now. I spoke to a mate who is a tracksider at the Sydney tracks and even he's given it up. Said he barely makes enough to cover the petrol to get there now.

Fascinating thread. Though I have only read the last 3 pages I can totally relate.

I have been trading in-play for around 3 months or so, but this last month has been really tough. This makes a lot of sense now.

I can confirm that the Betfair start time is 2-3 seconds behind live. It also used to be easy to pick up a couple of dollars here and there but lately it just seems impossible. To the point that I have given up.

I hope that Betfair realises they are losing a good portion of their in-play clients to this and puts a stop to it. The in-play money will dry up and so will their commissions if TAB or whoever is allowed to continue dominating.

Either give us access to the live feed or go down with the rest of the defunct bookies. If you want the fair market that you preach, make it fair. It will be better for everybody.

They are very good this week. I'd found the previous couple of weeks a bit easier, but the fast picture guys have lifted. I keep betting too late in the straight. Old habits die hard.

I know someone who offered Sky well into the 6 figure range a year or so ago and they got laughed at.
