  sydbarrett: I've been a Floyd fan since I was an Embryo (buying DSOTM at age 13 as one of my first CDs I think was my first step into adulthood. Changed my outlook on life. Either that or hearing Nevermind a year before that.)

  morfishine: <sydbarrett> I have listened to virtually every Floyd album at least once (even Atom Heart Mother!). Of course, the Moon, Wishing & the Wall reign supreme, but my favorite Floyd album is 'Animals'

When I purchased the CD off Ebay from a murky Russian vendor, it arrived as described with a few unreleased bonus tunes included that absolutely stunk (no wonder these weren't released LOL)

  sydbarrett: I've made it a point to know about every obscure Floyd track since high school, so I wonder what these extra tracks you mention are? I've listened to every recorded album many times over (and bootlegs when I ran out of new studio material to mine), and never found anything less than "interesting," that's how fanatic I am. Animals is angry in a "wonderful" way--- great when you feel wronged. ;-) Also, they finally released lots of vault material the past few years, and I was surprised by how much more there was hidden all these years.

  morfishine: <sydbarrett> When I get home, I will rustle up this CD and see if there are titles attached to the additional tracks. From what I recall there were 5-6 tracks adding ~25 minutes of "music"

  sydbarrett: I found the underrated bet for today --- "W-D-B" --- and I put 100. It looks like the wheel's gonna land there.

  WinKing: On the 'Pick 4' bet for round 6 it would have helped if you would have listed the games in the description box. Love the bet though. :)

  Annie K.: <WinKing> good idea, I'm missing them too. I'll add them. :)

  FSR: <sydbarrett> When I was 13, DSOTM was the first album I ever bought. So we have that in common, but I bought mine in vinyl form.

  sydbarrett: mmm vinyl. I could get into that. Maybe in another lifetime. I'll stick to the CDs and mp3s I got.

  Sneaky: The first music I ever owned in my life were two eight track tapes my mother gave me. One was the Eagle’s Greatest Hits; the other was Pink Floyd’s Animals.

  sydbarrett: I love you guys with your 8-track and your vinyl. Never thought I could feel so young, ha ha ha

If everything draws today, it's game over MAN. What a disaster for me it would be

  FSR: Looks like I should have bet on Duda, Duda.
Jul-21-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: It wasn't "Duda Day" after all. I bet on Giri/Wojtaszek and Nepo/Meier. That counts as betting on Giri/Meier, right?

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <FSR> Giri beating Kramnik with the Black pieces is one of those screwball events that messes up the whole Kit-and-Kaboodle
Jul-21-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <morfishine> Indeed. That was never supposed to happen. As I recall, Giri had never won as Black against Kramnik in a standard game.
Jul-21-18  DerDiemer: Sum sites show Kovalev won in Round 6 , Chessbookie got him as a lost ???
Jul-21-18  DerDiemer: Chessgames and Chessdom shows it as win for Kovalev, Chessbase and Ches2700 shows it as a draw ???

  Annie K.: The round recap at the official site says it was a draw:

<Die 6. Runde des Sparkassen Chess-Meetings war an Dramatik kaum zu überbieten. Jan-Krzysztof Duda spielte gegen Ian Nepomniachtchi groß auf und sah schon wie der sichere Sieger aus, verpatzte aber seine Gewinnstellung zum Remis. So endete auch die Partie zwischen Radoslaw Wojtaszek gegen Vladislav Kovalev, in der der polnische Großmeister leichte Stellungsvorteile besaß.>

So the Bookie bet was paid off correctly. The game result will need to be corrected.

  chessgames.com: About the Dortmund exotics:

EPIC GAME was settled as "YES" because of V Kovalev vs Kramnik, 2018.

UNDERPROMOTION was settled as "NO". The only promotion whatsoever was A Giri vs J K Duda, 2018 and it was of the normal queen-variety.

Dortmund turned out to be a OOO-fest, as the LONG CASTLING was settled as "EIGHT OR MORE TIMES." There were 6 games with long castling, two of which had double-long-castlings, so they count twice. The games are:

R Wojtaszek vs G Meier, 2018
Nisipeanu vs J K Duda, 2018
I Nepomniachtchi vs Nisipeanu, 2018 (x2)
J K Duda vs G Meier, 2018
V Kovalev vs Nisipeanu, 2018 (x2)
A Giri vs J K Duda, 2018

These were fun bets, expect some exotics to appear for upcoming Biel games.
