  Penguincw: Wow, Jonny held Fire to a draw: TCEC Season 8 Stage 1a: Jonny - Fire.

This bet ended mere minutes before the leaderboard update, so the leaderboard is updated. :)

I also see this bet closed just 1:27 before the actual start time. Believe it or not, that's more than the Sinquefield Cup (I usually set it around 3:16).

  Penguincw: < Total number of contestants: 201 >

Woo hoo! 200 contestants. That number has basically doubled in the last 2 weeks. Every user-bookie to date has hit at least 200 contestants (well one of them had 199).

  Sneaky: <ERROR : Your account does not have enough money to afford this wager.> Darn, that's never a good error to get.

<That number has basically doubled in the last 2 weeks.> As cool as that is, perhaps CG would do well to double-check these new signups and make sure it's not shenanigans. I don't see any new faces in the forum...

<Mark>, are you keeping track of any suspicious users? ;)

Uh, I think <cg> does a check at the end of every leg, so it shouldn't be a problem. But I guess it can't hurt to do one now.

I heard the state of Florida could soon face a tropical storm. I heard this site doesn't encounter any problems...

I think this site has had enough tropical Florida storms, don't you think?

Well I'll tell you up front now, and if Ceegee moan at me then they moan. I'm going to use my other handle and start all over again from 1000. There's a fault in this game when I can't get a loan yet people with - 50000 can. So I'm gonna play using my other handle and cope with the consequences. It isn't like I haven't been mentioning this all week.

And just in case I look like qualifying... I'll put it all on a BBB ticket.

Aug-29-15  sydbarrett: No like today's bets. My prognosticated choices all have low payoffs.
Aug-29-15  sydbarrett: bet 200 on "other" (Aronian's first move). when other started getting too much action, I switched my bet by placing 800 on "d4." Never going against first instincts again, ha ha. But I got money to burn.

  FSR: Carlsen and Aronian drew.

  Penguincw: < For example, if Vachier-Lagrave and Nakamura both win, and Aronian - Carlsen is drawn, "White-Black-Draw" will pay. >

That moment when "White-Black-Draw" ends up paying. :D Not the first time though.

So how were the stock market guys?

BTW: Give me some time to come up with the next round's bet. I might go into double digits...

Aug-29-15  sydbarrett: How was the market for me? I already gave up on my So-So bet. Sunk costs. I bet on Naka, MVL and Grischuk. Really hoping Grischuk converts his position to a win, that will be my best bet of the day. I did bet on draw on the last two, but in general, I have a feeling lots of people lost cash, including those who like to bet on draw. Fred? Did I just describe you?

Well that's one of the bets I wouldn't have had, I believe there's a conspiracy against me at the bookies because of my exceptional forecasting. And I would have normally had 50 on that so I'd have made around 1500! I think Fred's presence is affecting my judgement.

  FSR: The site should really update the standings every day at, say, 8 P.M. It's annoying having to wait so long to find out the current standings.
Aug-29-15  sydbarrett: Well friend, I just showed my Grischuk ticket. I already have mentioned that I rightfully took a blow when I went against instinct and reversed my "First move" bet. I had a piece of the pick three... enough to keep other greedy goblins from taking too much

That leaves my remaining 4 bets. So the question becomes, is Syd Barrett a loser, or is he a great WINNER and a legend? Take a guess sweetie

Aug-29-15  sydbarrett: You sound insecure, my favorite pudgy bespectacled cutie. If you think that you are a match for me, you wouldn't need constant updates to confirm it. I think that's because you realize who your master is.
Aug-29-15  Justin Flint: <(1) sydbarrett 9,877

<sydbarrett: ... Take a guess sweetie>

Please desist with the sexual advances. I don't swing that way.

<Justin Flint> Those numbers are out of date. I'm much higher than that now, and maybe Syd is too.

Aug-29-15  sydbarrett: Are you sure you don't?? You sound like you want to convince yourself of that more than you want to convince me... See you tomorrow...
