Finally, a solution to Bada-Bing's fixed odds system flaws?

Betting against other bettors (not against the house), i.e., it's still a pari-mutuel. Thus, the house would not get involved in setting odds.

Requires sophisticated software to display instantaneous odds and lay off your bet against others.

In effect, you get a fixed odds bet, brokered in real time, just as a book would do.
