OK., so now I am confused.'Have a bot running on horses.Watched a bet get matched at $2.22. In the log:
$ 22.52 Back bet placed on 1. Valtimor at 2.22. Fully matched at 2.22. Ref: 104998050374.Time stamp 11/10/2017 17:42:17. I saw it matched and watched my profit whatif condition improving...
then market suspends...
11/10/2017 17:42:53: Guardian has detected that the market is suspended
Then..suddenly my matched bet for the same stake(which is impossible since I was backing by book%) is recorded at $2.05 :? -with the same bloody reference number :x
Same ref number different price.same stake? What the????
=loss
How can you win when they do that? Have I missed the boat somewhere? I know BF suspend markets willy- nilly . I saw suspension way before the off happen multiple times during the day and in one case the odds appeared to jump about 10 clicks after the suspension :shock: Not happy Jan! Does this happen a lot?

Could have been a withdrawn horse at the market suspension and the reduction factor applied

I thought about that but didn't see the runners reduce. Maybe I missed it.After seeing dodgy suspensions all day I may have lost me sense of humour :) Thanks for the reply

If you are not sure if you missed it, look in your Betfair profit/loss and select that particular race if this was the reason you should see 'RF' to indicate there has been a reduction factor applied

Thanks for that. I checked both P&L and Account statement but can't see RF.I was up most of last night tending my sick toddler :shock: ... so maybe my brain is gone further than normal-which is why I thought I missed it in the first place.Cheers for the advice.Am pretty sure there is nothing there but will check in the morning
