|Jan-28-18|| ||centralfiles: can we get anything on tradwise?
maybe some generic bets
will so and so win his next round?
will black win in top five boards
what will be the longest game?
what openings will we see etc etc
|Jan-28-18|| ||centralfiles: Its just that i basically lost all my cbs but Im still holding onto a sizable loan if i need to to wait a few weeks im basically out if i can bet out i can still try.|
|Jan-29-18|| ||Annie K.: In-Play Winner bet is now up.
We'll also have PayDay, sometime around Feb 10-15, and I'll probably open a line or two then to allow late joiners to bet on something - TCEC started a new season, so I can always find some interesting pairing there. :)
Mind you, given recent developments, a computer championship without AlphaZero is about as toothless an idea as holding a Women's Championship without Yifan Hou... oh, wait, that happens all the time too. Never mind, then. ;p
|Jan-29-18|| ||centralfiles: can we try how many of the 1st 10 boards will be decisive games?|
|Jan-29-18|| ||Annie K.: Maybe in the last round. :)|
|Feb-04-18|| ||truepacifism: ok, things are slow here, perhpas because of the super bowl????|
|Feb-04-18|| ||truepacifism: woops I invented a new word|
|Feb-04-18|| ||wallytherhino: looks like we have a close race for making the top 10 in this event:|
(10) Tomlinsky 11,988
(11) beatgiant 11,248
|Feb-08-18|| ||zborris8: Are any bets planned for the 960 match?|
|Feb-08-18|| ||Annie K.: What match would that be? Link plz.|
|Feb-09-18|| ||WinKing: Pairings for the Candidates 2018:
|Feb-10-18|| ||technical draw: I'm having withdrawal symptoms because I haven't had a bet in a long time. Maybe I'll join CBA. (Chess Bookie Anonymous)|
|Feb-10-18|| ||Annie K.: <WinKing> thanks, I'm amazed FIDE forgot to be hush-hush top secretive about it... is Agon not running this event? ;p |
Anyway, I considered putting up some bets, but it's much too early - you have to think about new players, who may not realize that if they tie all their cash up with such a long-term bet, they could get stuck without even a chance for loans.
I'll put something fast-paying up from TCEC in a few days for PayDay. :)
|Feb-10-18|| ||WinKing: <Annie K.: <WinKing> thanks, I'm amazed FIDE forgot to be hush-hush top secretive about it... is Agon not running this event? ;p>|
I'm shocked myself <Annie K.>. Maybe FIDE
pushed Agon a little this time around to drum up a little more interest early on. Not sure how close FIDE & Agon really are?! If push came to shove I think FIDE would get what it wants. Just my opinion.
|Feb-10-18|| ||WinKing: <Annie K.: I'll put something fast-paying up from TCEC in a few days for PayDay. :)>|
Better hurry <technical draw> needs his 'fix'...I'm gettin' kind of ankcious myselxf <Annie K.>. My hends arr shakeen.
|Feb-10-18|| ||moronovich: <technical draw: I'm having withdrawal symptoms because I haven't had a bet in a long time. Maybe I'll join CBA. (Chess Bookie Anonymous)>|
IŽll bet you wont ;)
|Feb-10-18|| ||technical draw: <moronovich> <IŽll bet you wont ;)>|
I'll take that bet! Ahhhh! I feel better already.
|Feb-13-18|| ||Annie K.: Heh, TCEC was on a break between divisions for the last few days. The Premier Division just started, with a 90' + 10" time control and no opening book for the engines in this stage - I'm going to wait another day to get an idea of how long the games last on average in practice, so I can make a reasonable closing times guesstimate, and then we'll have some action. :)|
|Feb-14-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <♔ ChessBookie Pay Day Announcement! ♔>|
Pay Day will be tomorrow, on the 15th of February: 1000 chessbucks will be added to every <active> Bookie player's account.
New/inactive players, make sure to place at least one bet before that date, if you want to be included in the payout!
|Feb-15-18|| ||zborris8: <Annie K. - What match would that be? Link plz.> |
Too late! No bets were ever posted for the games. Examples: Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2018 , Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2018 , Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2018 , etc.
|Feb-15-18|| ||chessgames.com: Pay Day has been paid!|
|Feb-21-18|| ||WinKing: Hi <Annie K.>. I think Artemiev won his game against Karthikeyan in round 2. They reported it as a draw first then changed it to 0-1.|
|Feb-21-18|| ||Annie K.: Fixed :)|
|Feb-21-18|| ||beatgiant: In today's pick 3, if I'm not mistaken, Svane's name is misspelled as 'Svanen'. Some plungers may pretend they were confused and blame their losses on that....|
|Feb-22-18|| ||Annie K.: I expect Bookie players to know better than that. :p|
But I'll fix the typo for the sake of aesthetic considerations. ;)
