Looks like a lot of people did. I'm currently in 12th place at 950. Hmm.

  Annie K.: Meh. Still no pairings out for IoM round 1, with 12 hours left. That means there won't be bets for round 1. Let's hope they get their act together for the rest of the tournament. :/

  moronovich: Hello !

There is a nice little match comming up.
What about putting up some bets !?

Last time it was a succes betting on the "running double". And the final score would also appeal to a broader audience.

  WannaBe: WCC: Decisive Stage

I am guessing this bet is for when the Champ will be crowned??

The bet is not very clear and the description leaves much to be desired.

  Chessgames Bookie: Betting on the first game of the World Chess Championship is now open!

WCC rd 1: Caruana - Carlsen
WCC rd 1: Caruana - Carlsen: Over/Under

Carlsen - Caruana World Championship: WINNER
WCC: Decisive Stage
WCC: Carlsen's First Move With White
WCC: Caruana's First Move With White
WCC: Standings after 2 games
WCC: Early decisive game?

Good luck everybody, and have fun! Any suggestions for bet types people would like to see in the next rounds will be welcomed.

----

<WannaBe> We apologize for the terseness of the descriptions and the delays in setting the bets up. <Annie> is currently in hospital and was in no mood or condition to include detailed explanations when she opened the WCC markets. I will be filling in for her until she gets better.

That said, "Decisive Stage" ought to be self-explanatory. Yes, that bet is for when the Champ will be crowned.

  Annie K.: Thanks everybody. :)

OK, time to start thinking about PayDay. I reckon halfway through the WCC match, on the Saturday 17th rest day, would be a good time to run it.

  Chessgames Bookie: <juan31> Did you have a bet on <1.e4 c5> that has vanished or didn't pay as a winner?

  juan31: I beat : 1. e4 other, then i'am wrong ?
Nov-15-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chessgames Bookie: As far as I can tell, game 5 opened 1.e4 c5; so 1.e4 Other is a losing ticket. 1.e4 Other would pay if White opened with 1.e4 and Black did not respond with 1...c5.
