Hi all,

I used to bet on betfair, mainly in tennis. For some time liquidity was gradually getting lower and lower, with less people betting and less money in the markets. I haven't been active for a couple of years more or less, and I wonder how things have evolved since then?

Right now there are obviously no tournaments to compare. What do you think, has it kept getting worse or is it better now than it used to be?

If you're betting, there's still plenty of money in the tennis markets.

If you're trading, 'Fill Rate' becomes more of an issue

Thank you for your messages guys. Sounds like it hasn't improved, and maybe liquidity is less constant (deduced from the fill rate issues). Not very good news, although I guess it was to be expected, since that was the trend in the last years.

Just one more question: regarding courtsiding, what has happened in the last tournaments with no public? Still some people being incredibly quick? With in play delay still 5 seconds?

Talking of liquidity. A (non trading IT friend of mine) described these guys as very smart (he is one of the smartest guys I know) and capable

Wonder if anything will come of it-especially as they are based in Melbourne/Australia-with all the legal hoops they'll have to negotiate here..let alone the track records like Betdaq being booted out years ago. Most other betting gambling orgs here seem to be registered in the NT too
Liquidity will be one of the keys for sure.

I see Augur https://augur.net/- doesn't seem very active
BF still dominate for some time methinks :ugeek:

The markets are seeded with absolutely no delay. Think about how that is possible (there is only one obvious answer). Courtsiding is not an issue

Betfair are seeding the markets themselves (which is how "someone" gets around the delays)
