|May-10-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: 'The charge of the light brigade'. Good luck <sydbarrett>!|
|May-11-18|| ||sydbarrett: Thanks <Chessgames Bookie>. Your well wishes have brought me to a loftier perch|
|May-11-18|| ||sydbarrett: Is Shankland juicing? If he wins I lose 420 precious chessbucks|
|May-13-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Tomorrow, Monday 5/14, is a rest day for both the WWC match & the Capablanca Memorial. Play will resume on Tuesday, May 15th for both.|
|May-13-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Happy Mother's Day to all of our members who are mothers.|
|May-13-18|| ||sydbarrett: May the prize of today's Pick Three go to the greatest mother among us. =)|
|May-13-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: The 'PICK THREE' pot is growing fast! I $uspect we will $ee a little movement on the Leaderboard today. ;)|
|May-13-18|| ||sydbarrett: I invested $1700+ on that pick three on 27 different outcomes. Looks like the smallest payoff available to me will pay. I am not the greatest mother here :,,(|
|May-13-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Looking like either W-D-W or D-D-W. Too early to tell.|
|May-13-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: Looks like W-D-W now, which will probably mean that the biggest dive in the standings will be mine. They say that fortune favors the bold..but clearly, that's a load of crap :)|
Guess I'll focus on ending this leg on a plus score from now on. I will root for <syd> and <moro> now. Go guys!
|May-13-18|| ||sydbarrett: Shankman I will never forgive you for this|
|May-13-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: Wow, <OhioChessFan> has jumped to 4th! So strike that last post, I will now root for my good friends <OCF>, <moro> and <syd> from now on. May the Force be with you!|
<sydbarrett: Shankman I will never forgive you for this>
While you may never forgive Shanks, I will never forgive Guijarro. I mean, 12...Qb6? What's up with that? 12...dxe4 followed by ...e5 completely equalizes! This guy is now officially on my blacklist.
|May-13-18|| ||sydbarrett: <Count Wedgemore> I'll analyze that game now to see what you mean.|
All Shankman had to do was not shank his opponent (W-D-D, or W-D-B), and I'd have $3000-4000 back. In fact, I had like 13-20 outcomes or something that paid in that range. Shanks has broken the code of honor, and now he better watch his back!
|May-13-18|| ||OhioChessFan: I hit the Pick 3 for 200. I was shocked what kind of odds such a reasonable set of picks gave me.|
|May-13-18|| ||sydbarrett: <Count Wedgemore> your debt is surmountable. I was down -$200 at one point and I was right back in it in two weeks|
|May-13-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Norway is just around the corner gentlemen. All deficits here are surmountable. A lot of members will be signing up to play as they always do when the 'big daddy' tournament arrives. Ahhhh...the smell of new money joining the party. I can already sense the wolf pack circling.|
|May-13-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: <sydbarrett: <Count Wedgemore> your debt is surmountable.>|
I will give it a try, <syd>. I just hope the loanshark will be considerate and not send his goons after me!
<OhioChessFan: I hit the Pick 3 for 200.>
200 at 9:1 odds: well played, <OCF>. That W-D-W line was definitely underplayed. I bet on several other lines, 'cause I was pretty certain Guijarro would hold Dreev to at least a draw. Shows how much I know. Oh well, now he is in my black book..
And thanks for lifting my spirits, <CG-Bookie>. I'd forgotten all about the 1k payout coming up. Norway Chess is going to be a lot of fun!
|May-13-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Oh yes I forgot Payday...that too! Never say insurmountable in this forum. ;)|
|May-18-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: The Women's World Championship is now over. Congratulations to Ju Wenjun on being the new Women's World Champion!|
|May-18-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Tomorrow, Saturday 5/19, is the final Round 10 of the 53rd Capablanca Memorial. I will try to have Payday distributed out on Monday 5/21. The next tournament scheduled is Norway Chess which starts on Monday May 28th.. There will be a short break but I hope to find a few quality games that we can bet on before Norway. I will definitely have a Pick the Winner bet for Norway up shortly after Payday.|
|May-19-18|| ||morfishine: Holy smokes, <wallytherhino> was at +5000 then lost it all and plummeted to -3,000 and now is back to +4600|
Thats some crazy stuff
|May-19-18|| ||WinKing: The man knows how to play this game.|
|May-19-18|| ||sydbarrett: -3000? get out. you exaggerate hahaha
I usually hit a few nice pick three jackpots a season. Not so far this season. So. Frustrating. P.S. Adding some bets before Norway sounds great to me.
|May-19-18|| ||FSR: <morfishine> wally got up to at least 8,953. See my April 25 post in this forum.|
|May-19-18|| ||WinKing: <sydbarrett: P.S. Adding some bets before Norway sounds great to me.>|
Depends what's available. Maybe some maybe none. We'll see.
