What is a strategy
A strategy consists of a set of criteria that defines which runners, when and how much to bet on them.

Manual Strategies are special strategies developed to quickly react to user manual commands.

With this strategy you can place unlimited bets with the size you want.
The other Manual Strategies cover in-play and pre-race specific betting techniques. You must import them into Ipposnif in order to use.
Betting Strategies automatically place bets on automatic/manually selected runners.
All the betting (and trading) strategies share the same structure, and they differ between them only with the configuration parameters.
