  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

  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. :)

  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.

  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. :)

Too late! No bets were ever posted for the games. Examples: Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2018 , Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2018 , Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2018 , etc.

  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.

  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....

  Annie K.: I expect Bookie players to know better than that. :p

But I'll fix the typo for the sake of aesthetic considerations. ;)
