|Sep-13-19|| ||moronovich: Same here !|
|Sep-15-19|| ||scout118: <moronovich> I meant this Bookie has got to get a move on or got to get moving. I'm not too concerned about placing last but there should be bets for rounds 3, 4, 5, 6 and the championship. Even for the tie breaks.|
Not sure who this bookie is and thanks to this person for volunteering. But come on now. I'm sure it's not Annie K or WinKing.
|Sep-15-19|| ||moronovich: Yes,we need some action.|
|Sep-15-19|| ||Penguincw: According to Chessgames Bookie chessforum (kibitz #12630), it's <Kevin>.|
< A big round of applause for User: WinKing for conducting this Championship leg, the last ChessBookie leg run by a volunteer Bookie.
That's right, the daily management of the ChessBookie game is now returning to CG employee <Kevin>, who had run it before, several years ago. Welcome back, Kevin! >
|Sep-18-19|| ||scout118: Hello Mr Chessbookie, where are the bets for Round 4? Need to get moving!|
|Sep-25-19|| ||sydbarrett: Please give up. I'm going to win no matter what. Just like my Yankees will finally return to champion status this year. It is destiny.|
|Sep-25-19|| ||wordfunph: <sydbarrett> too early, i am just few ranks behind you. I'll catch up.|
see you in the homestretch.
|Sep-27-19|| ||sydbarrett: I took you seriously until I checked the standings. Hope you still got some betting money to have fun with, sir.|
|Sep-27-19|| ||sydbarrett: Radjabov defeated the more popular candidate MVL and widened the gap between me and #2 and #3. yes yes yes go Radish. MVL was the only remaining player I didn't bet much on to win it all. Destiny. I'm sorry, but you will find that the gap will widen even further the next few days, boys (and gals).|
|Oct-04-19|| ||sydbarrett: The wait between bets is so long O_O|

|Oct-04-19|| ||sydbarrett: Thank you. And wish my Yankees good luck too please. Never mind they don't need it.
For being so nice, you get 1000 bucks. Now hit me with me your best shot|
|Oct-08-19|| ||morfishine: Any bets for European Club Cup?|
|Oct-08-19|| ||Annie K.: <Update> Kevin got a job that makes it difficult for him to tend to Bookie duties in a timely manner, so we released him from this task; he remains our puzzles master. For now, I took the Bookie's management back myself, but I'm hoping to find someone else to train for it ASAP. |
I'm still mostly using 2700chess.com to check for upcoming events, but turns out they are not as reliable as they used to be. :\ The European Club Cup will start <November> 9th, not October. I just deleted it from the list. In any case, I am having second thoughts about covering team events at all; board pairings are never available in time, and betting on team results is more of a maths- than a chess-related game, and the research required to set up these bets is too time-consuming for me.
We have the FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss starting on the 10th. This event will be the last of the leg, as we still need to squeeze a Fall leg into November-December; the traditional first event of the Championship Leg, Tata Steel, is scheduled to start on Jan 11.
|Oct-08-19|| ||morfishine: Thanks for the update <Annie K.>!|
|Oct-10-19|| ||Penguincw: Yes, thanks a lot <Annie>.|
I wagered 5 bets worth a total of 200 cbs today, and made a grand profit of 1 cb. Yay!
|Oct-11-19|| ||moronovich: Thanks for doing the job <Annie K> !|
What about making some Pick 3īs and/or Daily Doubles,before the leg is over !?
|Oct-11-19|| ||Annie K.: They will be offered whenever I can set up bets with enough time left to get decent pools for them.|
|Oct-11-19|| ||moronovich: Thanks !|
|Oct-12-19|| ||sydbarrett: That Pick 3īs jackpot was delicious. Miam-miam. More please|
|Oct-18-19|| ||mike1: no round 8 bets up and only 5 hour before the start??!!|
|Oct-18-19|| ||moronovich: Please---some odds !!|
|Oct-18-19|| ||sydbarrett: Too late. Desperation is not a good look, boys. I will come back like the Yankees. It's the Return of the Kings. gg.|
|Oct-19-19|| ||sydbarrett: I just bet my whole life savings. Then I borrowed some money, and bet it too. This will be fun|
|Oct-20-19|| ||moronovich: Last call,dear bookie !|
