    I think Neil was not at work in past days.
    Someone tried to do something good, but it has been created a problem.
    Issue will be fixed, in an exaustive way (as usual) soon.

    Thanks Neil for your work, and thanks to all BDP team for daily engagement and work.

    Hi
    Code:
    Odds liab rounded % error
    1.81 0.0081 0.01 23.46
    1.80 0.0080 0.01 25.00
    1.79 0.0079 0.01 26.58
    I think they just worded their update a little loosely, as you said lay £0.01 @ 1.8 is right on the change over point, they seem to let an exact 25.00% through as valid. Up a tick would be OK too, but down a tick would fail

    I wonder why they chose to fix this low value stake abuse in this way. It broke a lot of code, and it is a fiddly fix for everyone to work around it. I am suprised that they didnt tweak their rounding code on the Server, so these edge cases rounded in their favour. It wouldnt have broken everyones code and would have made them a few pennies !!

    So you can lay £0.01 @ 1.8, but that is 25% more so by the BDP definition that should be invalid.

    Was just pointing out that the odds listed don't work all the time.
    Some price/size combinations will just NOT be allowed

    But that makes trying to hedge awkward.
    You need to check your bet size before hedge and adjust it if it's necessary.
    In your case you can adjust size to 0.06 (liability 0.01) or 0.13 (liability 0.02).

    It's impossible because this bet will return 25% more than it ‘ought’ to. Read the first post of the thread.

    I was looking at a lay stake of 0.07 gbp placed @ 1.18

    not sure if the above listed odds are correct.

    Want a 0.07 lay bet @ 1.18.

    This CAN be placed at 1.12

    But cannot be moved to 1.18

    size price
    0.01 1.8
    0.02 1.4
    0.03 1.27
    0.04 1.2
    0.05 1.16
    0.06 1.14
    0.07 1.12
    0.08 1.1
    0.09 1.09
    0.1 1.08
    0.11 1.08
    0.12 1.07
    0.13 1.07
    0.14 1.06
    0.15 1.06
    0.16 to 0.19 1.05
    0.2 to 0.26 1.04
    0.27 to 0.39 1.03
    0.4 to 0.62 1.02
    0.63 to 0.79 1.03
    0.8 to 1.24 1.01
    1.25 to 1.59 1.02
    1.6 to 1.99 1.01

    But there are some other problems. For example you can't have a lay bet 1.49@1.01.
    Yep this is the answer. And original post updated and makes sense now.

    You are right. Hmmm
