Although I haven't verified this yet, I think they limit it. I still have to test this and see for myself though.

Of course they limit. You think those greedy idiots at betfair would know how to run a pro book?!?

Are they quick to limit? What are their max bets? Will they void reasonable arbs with 2-3%?

Sad to hear they limit clients. I bet mostly on basketball spread and totals and not been limited in betfair sportsbook so far. Played for around €300/ bet. More on a big favourites (1.50 or lower).

I don't think anyone had problems with payment from betfair ;)

If you ask for lines, everything settled correctly.

First is very difficult to find an arb on their sportsbook.
It seems that they offer thier odd from exchange side.

So if it is present on exchange they offer little lower odd on sportsbook.
And with that in mind, they probably never limit you, because you are in fact placing bets on exchange. This is only for singles. (this is explicitly stated that they do not doing this, but they owns both sides)

In case of multiples then they could limit you if you are successful. Only with multiples you are betting against betfair.

Always when I check sportsbook odd vs exchange odd, on exchange was better.
without (3.5%) commision.

Does anyone know if they offer their sportbook odds via API?

Placed my first two bets there yesterday, they haven't been even settled yet and I've already been limited. Can bet maybe 20-30 euro max on everything. That was one the fastest limits I've gotten in my first few weeks of arbing. But yeah, they do produce a lot of arbs and are very slow to move their lines.
