What interesting in this case is that these 3 bets were placed with exact 18s intervals on a same price 5.0 and (I guess) betsize was also the same.
Obviously some bot or program was used. It's not a missclick.

Sounds like someone with lots of money that doesn't understand how the exchange works?

If they're going to take a 10+ price all the way down to evens they might as well have used a bookie

Lots of good oppotunities but only managed to catch a couple of them

They're called fat fingers because they resemble somebody with fat fingers pressing the wrong buttons. Before software was in widespread use, the common mistakes was backing instead of laying or vice versa, skipping the decimal point when laying or skipping a zero whe backing on the Betfair website. I've even seen backing every horse at 1.01 when the intention was obviously laying. Now these errors are most likely caused by malfunctioning or badly programmed bots.

Surprising to see Intrusive (left graph) didn't bounce. Inner Circle (right graph) the opposite, drifted back out to 12.0
