Here's an interesting one, maybe...
I have noticed that when a succesful trade is made the balance showing on BF reverts to your pre back & lay level for a positive trade and to the pre back & lay level less the outstanding risk with a negative trade.
This prompts the question, with me anyway, is it possible to back, get matched, and then lay at a risk figure that would be higher than you BF balance, as the net gain / loss could be quite minimal?
BF Balance = £100
Matched back bet of £10.00 @ 25.00
BF balance then shows £90.00
Should the odds drop to, say 20.00, could you then lay £12.50 @ 20.00, even though your risk on the lay bet would be £237.50 with a BF balance of £90.00? (The overall trade would give a Net gain of £2.50)
Conversley, in a negative trade, could you then lay £8.33 @ 30.00, leaving a risk on the lay bet of £241.67, again with a BF balance of £90.00? (The overall trade would give a Net loss of £1.67)
Just wondered whether it was possible.
Can You Match At Higher Risk Than Your Betfair Balance?
