  WinKing: After a horrendous start I'm ever so slowly creeping up in the standings. Need that 'big hit' though.

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <Winking> Good Luck! It can be exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time! Twice this tournament, I've come within 1-game of scoring a 3-4,000 CB payday but alas, no luck

  WinKing: Thanks <morfishine>. Yeah I've been close a few times also but no real luck yet. We gotta stay upbeat though.

  technical draw: Looking at the last 21 closed events there was one win and 20 draws! I'm getting out of this racket. No more bets from me. And I'm not going to pay the loan shark back either. Let his boys try to find me...

  morfishine: I imagine the World Chess Olympiad (23 Sep - 6 Oct) will have some juicy games to wager on: I can hardly wait!
Aug-28-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chessgames Bookie: All bets have been settled now.

Although the rules for Sinquefield Cup: Winner stipulated that the tournament's normal tie-break procedure would be followed to determine a single winner, in this case that could not be done since Carlsen, Caruana and Aronian decided to share first place and not play tie-breaks. So all three players paid as winners, at reduced odds. (If somebody's unclear on how the reduced odds are calculated, it is explained at Chessgames Bookie chessforum (kibitz #4844).)

The next Bookie tournament (and the last tournament of the Summer Leg) will be the always-exciting Chess Olympiad, scheduled to start on September 24, with the first bets hopefully going up at least some days earlier. Can the United States (in the open section) and China (in the women's section) defend their titles? Stay tuned!

  Chessgames Bookie: <morfishine> It is unlikely there will be much betting on individual games during the Olympiad. We will take that opportunity if possible, but usually the board pairings in team events are announced too late for it to be practical.

You should expect betting on overall winners, match results and scores, handicapped matches, match daily doubles/triples, and exotics. There might be betting on individual players' overall performance at the Olympiad (like "who will have the highest performance rating in the open section", or "will player A's rating go up or down", or "which of these X players will do best on metric Y"); which will likely be your last chance this leg to back a specific player.

  morfishine: <Chessgames Bookie> Those are exactly the type of bets I need to get back into it: High odds - High payout! Thanks!

  Chessgames Bookie: Betting on the Batumi Chess Olympiad is now open!

Olympiad: WINNER
Olympiad (Women): WINNER
Olympiad: Best individual performance
Olympiad: Best individual performance (USA)

--

See the official site (https://batumi2018.fide.com/en) and Chess-Results (http://chess-results.com/tnr368908....) for more information. Please note that while team compositions ought to be final at this point, the currently listed board numbers are based on alphabetical ordering and should not be taken as a reliable indicator of the board any player will actually play on.

The Olympiad will be the final event of the Summer Leg, and your last opportunity to move up the leaderboard. Don't be afraid of taking risks - you have nothing to lose but play-money and your reputation and an awful lot of time spent refreshing pages waiting for new moves or results to appear.

(Chessgames.com, Chessgames Services LLC and the Chessgames Bookie will not be accountable if you do lose something else.)

Good luck everybody, and have fun!

  Count Wedgemore: Will there be the customary $1000 payout to all the players this leg? If so, it's already running a bit late, isn't it? IIRC, usually we receive the extra 1k around the middle of the leg, and we're already way past that now, aren't we?

  Chessgames Bookie: <Count Wedgemore> We're aware of the lateness of Pay Day. The problem is that the Pay Day code can only be executed by the webmaster, and he's had a lot of other things to occupy him lately.

Pay Day is actually a fairly recent invention (the first one was only four years ago, during the 2014 Summer Leg); so a leg without a Pay Day would be far from unprecedented. Currently, though, it's still our plan to have a Pay Day some time soon. Stay tuned!

  Annie K.: PayDay has been paid out now. Good luck for the last event of the leg, folks!
