    I have just updated bfexplorer adding default stake entry for all dutching bet wizards, please install the latest version of bfexplorer:


    All dialogs are displayed in the center of the main bfexplorer window, so judging by your description you must use laptop with screen resolution about 800 x 600, or so.

    Please post article on forum when you discuss some features, so other bfexplorer users can find such information by article title. I posted this article about dutching tools:

    Hi Stefan, have sub'd 5 quid a month and am focused on the dutching ability only at the moment. What i can't workout is how to change the amount to bet in the box that opens. It always opens with 100 which i manually change to the amount i want. Can i change this to open to an amount i set? and it always opens over the time countdown and i have to manually drag it left to expose the time left before the jump. can this be changed somewhere? thanks.

    What you need to know to place a bet on betfair?

    You need to know that on betfair you can place either back or lay bet.

    You need to know that betting events you can place a bet on offers betting markets, and your bet is placed on a market selection, as only that expressed your exact bet opinion, right?

    So you know what it is event, market, selection, back or lay bet. You maybe know something about trading, as back/lay bets offer such transaction.

    Now you try to use bfexplorer to place bets on betfair, and as any application/program/software, bfexplorer offers menus and toolbars which offer most used actions. The application user Interface is context sensitive, what means when you already know what are based objects on which bfexplorer operates (betfair event, market, selection, bet, bot) then you can simply find such context in the menu, and execute available action on it.

    You want to dutch market selections, so in the Market menu, when you already opened a market on which you want to place dutch bets, you can find in the menu: Market / Bet Wizard / Back / Lay Dutching tool.

    When I said that executable actions are context sensitive, I meant for instance, that when there is no market open in Bet Event/Trader then all market actions are disabled, because when you want to execute a context sensitive action, a context object on which such action should be executed must be selected, so in this context market must be open, and selected as active in the Bet Event/Bet Event Trader view.

    You can place dutch bets either using Market Bet Wizards for dutching, or using bots to place your dutch bets according defined criteria.

    Terms of using free version of bfexplorer are discussed here:

    Hi all, Have used bfex for a while until blocked out. i only want to use the dutching ability to understand it to its full workings but am finding instructions to set it up and understand it very hard to follow, especially with no sound or commentary as to what is being done. But on a positive note after trying others like bee something and traderline,& wagertool, bfex at least gets the bets refreshed and placed, unlike others that leave the bet hanging because the odds have changed too quickly, which invariably win without you on it. Anyway Stefan, how do i get back to operational? you have a good product, i just wish it was easier to navigate and had colour variation when setting up the dutching box.

    I leave only a few words...


    In my opinion this is not a happy solution.

    I sent you a few "extra" pounds* through the donate button to be "something special". (*over and above the paid plugins)

    You prolonged my PRO subscription, and I become common user which wrote some issues, wrote some ideas, some suggestions...

    WIN-WIN situation (in my eyes)

    Now I am in trap.
    I must write 5 articles per month and pay 15 pounds or pay 30 pounds per month.

    Ok. I am not in trap...
    I am a trader and I decide according to what is convenient for me.
    30 pounds is too much for me and write 5 articles per 3 pounds in order to get a "discount" is undignified

    How many pounds I sent to Stefan for the last 3 months?
    How many articles have been written by users for the last 3 months?

    Clearly, all is not just about money, is not it?


    PS: This comment will not use for subscriptions discount because I am proud bastard

    Thanks Stefan,

    However, can you please check my status as I now receive an error message when trying to execute a bot . . . "Not Allowed To Use This Tool."

    Thanks in advance.

    Eduardo, I do not change requirements for community subscription. Please read again comment I wrote to “In-Play Football Trading” article, you may read and refer to it.

    Neil NZ, is at the moment trial user. His community subscription starts after his trial expires and is changed to free subscription plan automatically, as he fulfilled all requirements to get free subscription when going from trial to free subscription, what is to post at least one comment or article.

    He already donated 15 GBP so I wrote that comment to inform him that he must let me know when this happens, because switching subscription from Free to Free Professional must be done by me manually, it is not done automatically as the rest of subscription plans is done.

    If user uses community subscription already and he wants to continue with such subscription in following month/s then he must post at least 5 comments or articles during this period to automatically apply for community subscription in next month/s. This can be checked by anyone, as for community user, who is really active on forum, in following month his subscription goes automatically to Free subscription.

    I already wrote the article about community subscription plan:

    http://bfexplorer.net/Articles/Content/214#Activation of Subscription

    In the case above, the user went through Trial to Free subscription and after his free subscription expired he decided to go to community Free Professional subscription plan, but as he did not posted any article or comment during his free subscription period, his subscription was not prolonged to Free automatically, simply because he did not fulfill requirements for 5 articles or comments during his free use of bfexplorer. Therefor he actaully posted that article to bfexplorer forum.

    So if you did not understand this activation mechanism, here it is once again:

    From Trial to Free, you must post 1 article or comment, and then you must post at least 5 articles or comments, to apply automatically for Free subscription in next period/s. The 5 articles or comments is checked for previous month, so for instance if you would like to go to Free subscription today, even if you totally posted more than 5 articles or comments, you would not get Free subscription, because in the last month you posted just 1 article or comment, what is this article, right?

    The community subscription plan is my way to reward those who help me build bfexplorer community by posting here interesting articles about sport betting or sport exchanges, about bots, or bot programming, simply posting on forum interesting reading for others.

    Thanks Neil, community subscription is automatically prolonged to free subscription after your previous subscription expires (and you are allowed to use the community subscription), then after your donation I must changed your subscription status to Free Professional, please let me know when that happens.

    Well, how to use bots?

    Just try to browse all available bots, and you will find out that bot names suggest the bot functionality, and bot parameters in details describe this functionality.

    For instance from your strategy, the cash out function. Bfexplorer offers this function/feature in bots having Close Position in their name (just type: close to Add a new order/bot dialog search input box to list all such bots).

    I suggested using “Close Selection Bet Position At Odds” bot, as this bot operates on one selection, but you can use as well the bot: “Close Market Bet Position” that closes bet position on entire market, it cashes out all open selection bet positions. The Profit parameter is mandatory one, so if you want to force the bot to cash out at any profit/loss, you must set Profit to 0 and Loss to 0.001, what covers any profit or loss trigger condition.

    Hi Stefan,

    Wow, thanks for your detailed instructions . . . it works perfectly. I doubt I would ever have figured it out! I have made the donation for a month at this stage and will contribute to the forum.
