Dutch Mode is a way of telling TSMapp to combine several bets at a time into 1 bet. This is known as Dutch Betting, We make several bets to make an equal profit. It does not matter who wins. The profit is the same. Since the profit is the same for which ever bet wins we can 'Combine the odds'.
When Dutch mode is on TSM looks out for special 'filters'. These are <D1> , <D2> , <D3> , <D4>.
When TSM reads one of these filters in the 'Selection' column it knows that it is a Dutch bet.
The filter <D1> is used to signify 1 bet. ( Identical to using no filter !)
The filter <D2> is used to signify 2 bets and so on. The filters can be entered at any point in the horse column.
To enter a dutch bet we enter a bet as we normally would.
Now Edit Row 1 and add the text <D3> to the Selection Text. This is telling TSMapp to combine the first 3 bets as 1 bet.
Dutch Mode is Enabled through Application Settings and then Dutch Mode Enabled.
Once Dutch Mode is turned on the bets are combined as below. -
The combined odds is 1.7. Once TSMapp is in dutch mode you can not make any changes to the data. To edit the data Turn Dutch Mode Off. This is done by unchecking the Dutch Mode Button again.
When saving bet data / results in Dutch mode you need to consider how you want to do this.
By saving the data in the condensed format, you will lose your original odds data. It will only save the 1 bet and the combined odds. To Save ALL your data turn off Dutch Mode Before Saving.
Dutch Mode Notes
- Where a bet entry states that there is a Dutch bet and no bet can be found TSM will add its own bet with default odds of 5.
- Where a bet entry states that there is a Dutch bet that requires the next row and that next row also has a Dutch bet added, the FIRST Dutch bet takes priority and overrides the second.
