You have 20 (10) requests per second free and you have to pay for more, BUT if you make much turnover on betfair, this will be credited and you don't have to pay. If you make a good turnover, so it's possible for a certain period on a day making several hundreds of requests without paying anything.
How much request per second can you achieve maximally (with paying) ? I assume there is no such thing as "unlimited" ?

how do you manage to match events and teams between sites? is there any smart solution or it has to be done with a lot of manually matching?

I programmed a matching framework, I call it Codestables ...

More than 2600 selections (Teams, Players ect.) so far and almost 400 tournaments integrated.

You should expect every bookmaker site you extract data from to have their own variant on Tournament\League\Fixture\Team etc so you need to develop an infrastructure to accommodate this. Typically maintain a master list and then a separate map for each bookmaker\sport\league etc. Once you have the data from the bookmaker site you need to map the participants from the bookmaker version to those in the master list.

Only by collecting odds against a common identity will your arb logic be able to function.

I have noticed that some bookmakers can have multiple versions of a participant depending on the market within the same fixture. I suspect this is intentional to try and discourage this type of data extraction activity. The sneaky bastards!

It's a slow, painful business building these maps.

Was hoping there is more simple solution...
Oh, well, too bad...

From my point of view building such maps with so many countries/tournaments/leagues is a total overkill for this.
Currently I am finishing with the development of a pretty intelligent algorithm that will do the whole matching work without the need of external maping databases, but it is not for sale ofcourse, just wanted to give you a tip that it is possible :)
