This is an interesting thread. I tend to use the Betfair and Betdaq mobile apps when I'm out and about. Have made some horrendous errors when backing or laying things due to the stake buttons being too close together. On one occasion I had about £1000 in my betfair account, thought I'd just backed an outsider for £4 as I occasionally do when I think they're overpriced relative to their chance. I looked at my phone and to my horror I only had about £50 in my account!, I had just laid the outsider for £50! I was very fortunate because almost immediately by pure chance it was pulled out of the race at the start. On another occasion I had about £104 in my betdaq account had a small bet I thought of £4 on a horse. Looked at my screen a minute later I only had £4 in my account! somehow had ended up backing it for £100! It was acutally about 7/1 exchange price was running a mighty race drawing clear between the last 2 jumps, I started to relax suddenly another horse emerged and ran mine down jumped past it at the last the 2 of them well clear. Suddenly the leader stumbled and the jockey nearly went out the side door and was clinging to the horse's neck. My jockey tried to re galvanise his mount but the leader in an extreme case of horsemanship managed to get back in the saddle and hold on by 1/2 lenghth. The sad thing is I was unfamiliar with the concept of laying off so could have put in a lay bet in running at the off. We live and learn!

I posted that chart on the today's racing thread. I don't think it was a fat finger mistake because the second favourite drifted massively at the same time. Can't imagine what caused such chaos!

Was that before the off or in-play ?

Obviously before the off - you can tell by the steady graph afterwards. Suspect those heartbeats were due to cross-matching and may well have given the culprit a heart-attack. :lol:

I want to check with you guys is this is a good way to set my fat finger bot. Is this condition setup correctly and how to setup for back bet? I want to lay at the best market price when this spike occurs.
