Just realised I've missed one out: Hcp+2 dutches with Hcp-1, but it's a bit of an unlikely one so I can't be arsed to add it.
Think I`m getting there albeit slowly - one more question though -
The spreadsheet seems to show that backing team A to Win (no handicap) cannot be dutched with backing team B to win with +0.25 handicap ?
Example - I was looking at a soccer match-
Team A was 2.05 with Bookie 1
Team B was 2.16 (+0.25) with bookie 2
Could someone explain why this would not be an ARB ? (If that is indeed the case)
Team A wins - you win at bookie 1

However if its a draw you will lose at bookie 1 and at bookie 2 half your bet will win and half will be refunded this is known as a split asian handicap. Half your bet goes on AH0 and the other half on AH+0.5. You can use your example if you put a bet on the draw. For example:
£100 at bookie 1 on Team A @ 2.05
£16.68 at random bookie on Draw @ 3.3
£94.91 at bookie 2 (ah+0.25) on Team B @ 2.16
A guaranteed loss of £6.59, check pokebus's spreadsheet 'Grumblebus' to work out the stakes.
thanks bub - that fills in the blanks a bit !
