I've nothing against the the actual in-play trade, it's the idea of the stake being related to how well you did pre-play that's slightly ify. I've always considered pre-play and in-play to be two different markets rather than one with a change of gear in the middle. If it's done with that in mind from the start then fair enough but I wouldn't want to think anyone would stake based on how much profit they'd made in the previous (as I see it) market.Vorogue18 wrote: ↑Wed Oct 09, 2019 8:59 amI reckon usually it does too Shaun but one situation this is useful for me is trades based on speedmaps/bias. Trading a drifter expected to sit wide/settle wrong part of track etc isn't a stretch to make some degree of green but often I'm confident there will be far greater profit in-play. Building some green pre-post and hoping to increase in play, both based on the same theory I guess.
It wasn't meant to be a big deal, I'm just pulling Dallas's leg a bit because taking positions in-play unless it's planned (incl the stake) has always been thought of as a bit of a no-no.
