Stage 1: Place Bet before trigger has been reached
-IF LAY STRATEGY: If player1 odds or player2 odds > layodds, then put out the lay bet instantly.
-IF BACK STRATEGY: If player1 odds or player2 odds < backodds, then put out the back bet instantly
1- if strategy says lay 1.25 and player1 odds = 1.4 and player2 odds = 3, put out the lay bet for both players instantly.
2- if strategy says back odds 20 and player1 odds = 1.8 and player2 odds = 2.2, put out the back bet for both players instantly.
3- if strategy says lay 1.4 and player1 odds = 1.3 and player2 odds = 5, put out the lay bet for player2 instantly and wait for player1 odds to go over 1.3
Stage 2: Place Bet when trigger is reached
-During update of odds on screen, if a strategy is assigned, check if the defined back/lay trigger is reached and result in an instant bet
- Check/wait that money has been taken
-A status clearly show that a live bet is placed. "Bet placed. Waiting to greenout at odds: ___"
Stage 3: Green Out:
-Watch for the greenout trigger to appear and green out (average on both outcomes)
When stage 1 has reached, stage 2 is initiated
