• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Trixie - Still confused

I know when I do Trixie's I play it safe and do 1.25 ( x 4 bets ) = 5pts

but technically, I think it's ok to do 4 bets x 1.66pts = 6.64 pts total per Trixie.

This way each event ( horse race ) is used 3 times ( x 1.66pts ) and therefore comes under the maximum 5pt allowance per event.....ie. total 4.98 pts.

I could be totally wrong.....
No daily limit but no single 'bet, event, or selection' can involve the use of more than 5pts'
One bet could mean one Trixie......so not sure.

Samacas Samacas is the ruling judge on this though.

Ah, thanks retriever. I look forward to Samacas Samacas reply - but I think I know the answer coming, with the max of 1.66pts.

It just seems odd, in my mind at least, since a Trixie is made up of 4 bets - where do you get each horse used 3 times?

Nevermind, found it ... you'd never guess I studied Maths at Uni LOL:

Is that stake ok, for the 5pts max. per bet?
No

retriever retriever has explained perfectly :handgestures-thumbup:

but technically, I think it's ok to do 4 bets x 1.66pts = 6.64 pts total per Trixie

That would be the maximum allowable:)

Its amazing how much we 'unlearn' when not in regular use, but it stays hidden in there somewhere for when someone switches the light on again:)
