    They are one of my favorite places. I hope they keep growing and become a viable option to Betfair for smaller leagues.

    I use MB quite a bit, and to be fair they often give me an offer worth a few quid!

    The only place I used when they were available in Canada. Routinely found -102 and -103 prices on NFL spreads. Useless to us in North America now.

    They are not bad I use them most now but their commissions system is still stupid I made few trades on 1 market and
    I was really shocking when found that they charge me 50 percent of commissions it seems for me that they charge commission on every bet not on the profit or loss when is more than 1 bet on the same market

    This is a well known fact and it's been like that for as long as I can remember. You pay your commission percentage on the stake you put if your bet loses and on the profits if your bet wins.

    I do not agree.
    The liquidity of the matchbook is negligible, and they also shut down some markets very quickly (or not open at all).
    Their live offer is really poor and there is a downtime of 6-12 hours every day without any live events.
    Playing under / over in basketball pre match can not be closed during the match because the under / over live markets are completely different.
    Their search engine "Live events" does not search for all live events, although they are available.
    A better alternative is Betfair / Smarkets or 9wickets / OrbitEX

    But if you want to play horse racing, Matchbook actually is the best stock exchange in the world for it.

    Smakets have better liquidity but also have sometimes serious technical problems for example disappearing bets.

    That's true, but the matchbook sometimes has all markets (every one) suspended for a few-dozen minutes.
    This is annoying when you have open positions.

    Betfair is still the best choice, it probably will not change.

    Also it is possible to have 0% commision. There was promotion at some arbitrage sites and they contact matchbook for zero commission.
    For US sports like NHL MLB, they have very good liquidity
