coach <Chnebel>, hang on!
|Jan-22-12|| ||Penguincw: Based on this game collection: Game Collection: this games saved me a lot of chessbucks, it looks like you've had a decent round.|
|Jan-23-12|| ||Chnebelgrind: <Penguincw> You are vigilant! Yes it was not that bad, but I had some other tickets which didn't pay, especially in Pick3. The DDD always is taken by <Switch> who meanwhile seems to be beyond reach. On his forum you can find his note: <I should end up around c$33K>|

|Jan-26-12|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: I prefer today's leaderboard, but that's just my opinion of course ;-)|
<wordfunph> Keep fighting, it's still anybody's leg!
|Jan-29-12|| ||Chnebelgrind: if my calculation is right, 10 bucks investet in Tata Steel A Quinella will lead to|
19.763 for Aronian/Carlsen
39.765 for Radjabov/any
84.498 for Caruana/any

• Total losing pool = c$12304
• Losing pool minus juice = c$11689
• Losing pool split into three parts = c$3896
• Winning pool 1 = c$3991
• Winning pool 2 = c$1309
• Winning pool 3 = c$523
• 10 * (c$3991 + c$3896) / c$3991 ~ 19.762
• 10 * (c$1309 + c$3896) / c$1309 ~ 39.763
• 10 * (c$523 + c$3896) / c$523 ~ 84.493
signed: better at Bookie maths than Bookie gaming :(
|Jan-29-12|| ||Chnebelgrind: Hurrah! I made it correctly.
<better at Bookie maths than Bookie gaming> To cook up 20 kilo in one round - that's what I call big gambling! It doesn't bear contemplating when such a thing will work one day
(Should come to 37885 BTW)
|Jan-29-12|| ||ChessWriter: I've been doing well these past six months intuitively following a similar strategy to these quants. I didn't realize you guys took this stuff so seriously! BTW, betting on chess games makes watching them live so much more exciting!|
|Jan-29-12|| ||Chnebelgrind: <you guys took this stuff so seriously!> I think there is only half a dozen who invests time to calculate the odds an to set serious bets day after day.And in the end normally it is a long shot that decides the matter.|
|Apr-01-13|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <Chnebelgrind> Congratulations! It was about time you won the Championship :)|
|Apr-01-13|| ||Chnebelgrind: Thanks <Switch>. What I was most afraid of down to the wire were your bettings! But as I have seen lady luck did forsake you at the end. Sorry for not posting a lot last time. I have realized, that discussing with competitors was not good for my fortune. But I was lurking all the time on yours and <dakgootjes> forum. And it was not always easy to keep silent, for example when you were explaining my betting system to our funny fellow <MarkFinan>. :)|
|Apr-01-13|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: I find it encouraging the Lady at least allowed me to stay in the top 10. We may have a future together yet :)|
|Apr-01-13|| ||wordfunph: <Chnebelgrind> --- the 7th Bookie World Champion, congrats!|
|Apr-02-13|| ||Chnebelgrind: Thanks <wordfunph>. I am looking forward to your all-time ratings. I hope you will again take time for this effort, what I would highely appreciate.|
|Apr-02-13|| ||moronovich: <Chnebelgrind>
First Cancellara and now you ;)
As I saw it, you made it all the way from 1000 and not 10 K !? Am I right ?
And in such case I am even more impressed.
Enjoy your day and wellearned status.
And see you at the final !
I made a fine profit at the real bookies betting on Svidler-Ivanchuk combined(125:1).
|Apr-02-13|| ||Chnebelgrind: Thanks <moronovich>. Yes I did start with 1000 c$. All the more I am happy about the result.|
Congrats for your win at the real bookie! It's quite optimistic to set on a combined loss of Carlsen and Kramnik! But the quote does justify it and so does the result :-)
|Apr-02-13|| ||OhioChessFan: Congrats on the win. The bizarre Candidate's Tournament made for an exciting contest.|
|Apr-02-13|| ||Chnebelgrind: Thanks <Ohio>. I think that was the chance of a lifetime for non-qualifiers to win the finals by betting on the most unlikely events :)|
|Apr-02-13|| ||AnimusEtOblivio: Congrats on overcoming some crazy odds! (see the pun there?)
It is a big accomplishment for sure, and it was definitely anyone's game. Great job raising above the rest.|
|Apr-03-13|| ||Chnebelgrind: Thanks <Animus>. Yes that was fun. Fortunately for me you had a serious deficit before your final bombshell :)|
|Apr-03-13|| ||Tal7777777: Congratulations on winning the World Chess Bookie Championship!|
|Apr-04-13|| ||Chnebelgrind: <Tal7777777> Thanks. Does UBS mean "Union de Banques Suisses"?|
|Apr-07-13|| ||Chnebelgrind: oh, I see: It's not UBS in your avater, but CUBS, sorry. Greetings from my compatriot User: cu8sfan|
