I've added a post regarding a rule change that happened 1st July 2017 regarding Aus turnover charge. I've included a list of tracks as well as a link to the Excel file that Betfair forwarded to me.

Hi Daywalker,

Just wanted to say I enjoyed your blog, so much so, that I got sidetracked and ended up spending over an hour this morning checking it out.

From your March 17 entry, can you enlighten me as to what Steve meant when he spoke about ?

"...but you do seem to be more interesting in cultivating some cut price Cassini blog personna than your bots for the time being."


Steve also spoke about:

"I did consider writing a much more in depth reply re:value and how to assess it"


I would be very interested in reading Steve's in depth response and I will post a request on your blog asking if he is prepared to contribute.

Thanks 8)

Hi Xraymitch,

I'm glad you enjoy reading the blog but do hope I haven't distracted you from something more important :shock: !

The exchange with Steve came after a run of negative comments (not from Steve), which I didn't publish, and mostly from people using tor to disguise their IP address. I felt his comment, at the time, was more finger wagging than helpful discussion. I may have responded differently had I not had the previous comments. Anyway, it's there and available to read.

His charge of copying Cassini, of the world's most read sports trading blog - Green All Over, has some truth behind it. But if he'd been keeping up with that blog, he would have seen one of my comments over there saying I would take on the style of responding to comments in a blog post, as opposed to replying under each comment, because it's a good idea. This brings comments into the discussion. Many blog visitors don't read comments, especially those left on posts that are down the list or old.

I would welcome further comments from Steve. I wasn't saying his points on value were wrong, just the specific point he'd made "Every bet you place with a bot should be sent because you believe it to be value at that time and it should be allowed to stand on it’s own merits." I disagree with this for my bots.

Please feel free to comment on the blog whenever you like.

Thanks
T

Speaking of Cassini. No updates on his blog or twitter feed for a while. Hope it's simply a holiday as he is well worth reading.

Hi Deestar,

I too hope he's OK. Over a month without a post after all the talk about daily hit counts. Curiously though, and I know he actively manages every comment to his blog, yesterday a comment was published on his last post. Have a read of that. Is it a rogue comment? Or a message from a changed man? Mysterious.

Sports betting software from Gruss Software


The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
