|May-13-18|| ||sydbarrett: <Count Wedgemore> I'll analyze that game now to see what you mean.|
All Shankman had to do was not shank his opponent (W-D-D, or W-D-B), and I'd have $3000-4000 back. In fact, I had like 13-20 outcomes or something that paid in that range. Shanks has broken the code of honor, and now he better watch his back!
|May-13-18|| ||OhioChessFan: I hit the Pick 3 for 200. I was shocked what kind of odds such a reasonable set of picks gave me.|
|May-13-18|| ||sydbarrett: <Count Wedgemore> your debt is surmountable. I was down -$200 at one point and I was right back in it in two weeks|
|May-13-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Norway is just around the corner gentlemen. All deficits here are surmountable. A lot of members will be signing up to play as they always do when the 'big daddy' tournament arrives. Ahhhh...the smell of new money joining the party. I can already sense the wolf pack circling.|
|May-13-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: <sydbarrett: <Count Wedgemore> your debt is surmountable.>|
I will give it a try, <syd>. I just hope the loanshark will be considerate and not send his goons after me!
<OhioChessFan: I hit the Pick 3 for 200.>
200 at 9:1 odds: well played, <OCF>. That W-D-W line was definitely underplayed. I bet on several other lines, 'cause I was pretty certain Guijarro would hold Dreev to at least a draw. Shows how much I know. Oh well, now he is in my black book..
And thanks for lifting my spirits, <CG-Bookie>. I'd forgotten all about the 1k payout coming up. Norway Chess is going to be a lot of fun!
|May-13-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Oh yes I forgot Payday...that too! Never say insurmountable in this forum. ;)|
|May-18-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: The Women's World Championship is now over. Congratulations to Ju Wenjun on being the new Women's World Champion!|
|May-18-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Tomorrow, Saturday 5/19, is the final Round 10 of the 53rd Capablanca Memorial. I will try to have Payday distributed out on Monday 5/21. The next tournament scheduled is Norway Chess which starts on Monday May 28th.. There will be a short break but I hope to find a few quality games that we can bet on before Norway. I will definitely have a Pick the Winner bet for Norway up shortly after Payday.|
|May-19-18|| ||morfishine: Holy smokes, <wallytherhino> was at +5000 then lost it all and plummeted to -3,000 and now is back to +4600|
Thats some crazy stuff
|May-19-18|| ||WinKing: The man knows how to play this game.|
|May-19-18|| ||sydbarrett: -3000? get out. you exaggerate hahaha
I usually hit a few nice pick three jackpots a season. Not so far this season. So. Frustrating. P.S. Adding some bets before Norway sounds great to me.
|May-19-18|| ||FSR: <morfishine> wally got up to at least 8,953. See my April 25 post in this forum.|
|May-19-18|| ||WinKing: <sydbarrett: P.S. Adding some bets before Norway sounds great to me.>|
Depends what's available. Maybe some maybe none. We'll see.
|May-20-18|| ||morfishine: <FSR> I didn't realize <wally> had gotten that many chess bucks. I may have to leverage more [ie: visit the loan shark] lol|
|May-20-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: I have put up a few games from the Summer Chess Classic 2018 (Group A) tournament being held in St. Louis, Missouri USA. It is a 10 player tournament & all of the contestants are rated in the 2600 range.|
|May-20-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: The games from the Summer Chess Classic 2018 (Group A) tournament will be the last ones posted to bet on until Norway Chess begins on May 28th. Be sure to get your bets in. Good Luck!|
I will have a Pick the Winner bet up for Norway Chess shortly after Payday

<chessgames.com: Payday funds have been distributed. Don't go squander it like drunken sailors!>
|May-21-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: A 'PICK THE WINNER' bet has been posted for the Norway Chess 2018 tournament.|
|May-22-18|| ||morfishine: Thanks <ChessgamesBookie>! But you look almost as sinister as the Loan Shark lol|
|May-23-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: You like a my Uncle Vinnie <morf>? He needed some work & his cranky attitude made being our loan officer the perfect fit. He has lousy taste in cigars but don't tell him I said that. ;)|
|May-23-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: What a great final game in the 'Pick Three'. All three results seem possible in the Durarbayli - Sevian game. Which one will win in the Pick Three'(?)... |
D-D-D, D-D-W OR D-D-B
...some big chessbucks up for grabs!

|May-24-18|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <EIDorado: How long does the Spring Leg last?>|
I have it ending on June 24th <EIDorado> with the Grand Chess Tour(Blitz) tournament which takes place in France. Usually we try to go to the end of June but right now I don't see any tournaments scheduled for the last week in June. *Unless* a tournament pops up between now & then June 24th will be the last day. This could change though.
