ChessBookie Game

"My cousin Sammy told me a true slugger - a Szeged slugger - will always swing for the fences, and that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to knock Kramnik out of the room with my 'home run punch.' My trainer and I have been developing it in camp. I just hope Vladimir's head is screwed on tight or it may end up on top of the demonstration board!" Game Collection: Lékó - Fireless and Boring?

Are you a player desperately in search for a system against 1.e4? Don't worry, friend, help is here. Finally, an easy and solid Black repertoire is available for everybody - the ultimate Owen Defense collection is complete and finished! Game Collection: Owen Defense

SwitchingQuylthulg: Thanks to <chessmoron>, <OhioChessFan> and <Golden Executive>, and congratulations to the winners and medalists! I've won too many silver medals lately... <WinKing> isn't leaving much gold for the rest of us.

SwitchingQuylthulg: <ahmadov> Ouch :( I hope you'll all be OK. <Dear <Switch>, the problem is that when i get any rating worse than good, I erase all my results and then promise myself that I will play so well that I will not get any rating below average. But then I get ...

SwitchingQuylthulg: <luftforlife> That's unlikely to happen, I fear; many kibitzers have requested an edit button over the years, and the conclusion has always been that while it would indeed be highly useful, there would also be serious downsides. chessgames.com chessforum (kibitz ...

SwitchingQuylthulg: <zanzibar> This database used to have the Rousseau-Conti game; in fact, I think it's had at least two copies of it, maybe more. The only remaining copy is at Busnardo vs NN, 1575 ; I don't think we need a duplicate with the wrong names.

  Annie K.: Brand new TomaTea just out... seems shorter than usual? http://www.tomatea.com/games/vintag...

So, how do you feel about running a Bookie leg these days? ;)

Feb-28-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: I'll be really busy this summer, so it's probably best if someone else does the Summer Leg. I should be able to do any of the other legs; I can take the Spring Leg if <Penguincw> doesn't want it.

I think I can find the motivation; at any rate, right now I feel at least as motivated to run the Bookie game as to play it.

Thanks for the TomaTea update! :)

Great, glad to hear you're in the lineup for the next cycle. :)

Go ahead and take the Spring Leg, I've already told <cg> last November that I won't be taking it, or any leg for that matter (stuff in my life). :)

Sorry.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: Any idea when the leg will end?
Mar-07-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: Possibly April 29th. That is the date Dan & I agreed on. We started late & we will finish late. So the next leg will be a short one. There are no real tournaments of interest in the beginning of April so I told him I would go to the end of April if necessary. This way the Championship Leg will have a nice finish with some strong tournaments.

  WinKing: I have a couple of questions for you <Switch>. How much of a percentage is the 'juice' in the ChessBookie game? Is it 3% on all bets or does it vary?
Mar-15-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: The juice is 5% of the losing pool, rounded down. The projected odds and payouts shown always reflect the juice.
Mar-15-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: Ok thanks <Switch>. I was wondering why it constantly fluctuated. That explains it.

I once managed to uncrash three times in one week; though I ended up in the cellar that leg anyway.

  luftforlife: <SwitchingQuylthulg>: Thanks again for your patient and helpful post in the <cg> forum. I really appreciated the tone and content of your reply to my inquiry about an edit feature. Those specific kibitzes you linked in, and the discussions they generated, were illuminating.

Just wanted to let you know that I submitted about a week ago my application to become an editor. Thanks for your supportive and encouraging comments in this connection. Kindest regards.
