  sydbarrett: Radjabov defeated the more popular candidate MVL and widened the gap between me and #2 and #3. yes yes yes go Radish. MVL was the only remaining player I didn't bet much on to win it all. Destiny. I'm sorry, but you will find that the gap will widen even further the next few days, boys (and gals).

Oct-08-19  morfishine: Any bets for European Club Cup?

  Annie K.: <Update> Kevin got a job that makes it difficult for him to tend to Bookie duties in a timely manner, so we released him from this task; he remains our puzzles master. For now, I took the Bookie's management back myself, but I'm hoping to find someone else to train for it ASAP.

I'm still mostly using 2700chess.com to check for upcoming events, but turns out they are not as reliable as they used to be. :\ The European Club Cup will start <November> 9th, not October. I just deleted it from the list. In any case, I am having second thoughts about covering team events at all; board pairings are never available in time, and betting on team results is more of a maths- than a chess-related game, and the research required to set up these bets is too time-consuming for me.

We have the FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss starting on the 10th. This event will be the last of the leg, as we still need to squeeze a Fall leg into November-December; the traditional first event of the Championship Leg, Tata Steel, is scheduled to start on Jan 11.

Oct-08-19  morfishine: Thanks for the update <Annie K.>!

  Chnebelgrind: Hi moro. Is the leg completed? I had tremendous luck. I have always set all the bucks I had available. On Sunday I lost five thousand points and then sank everything on the card "Wang Hao", on whose victory I had set 39 points the other day and won miraculously.

  moronovich: Yes <Chnebelgrind> ,the leg is completed and the winner is you :)

  Chnebelgrind: <moronovich> <wordfunph> <Count Wedgemore> <WinKing> Thanks for the congratulations and the nice words. I always try to make reputable bets considering probabilities and odds. If that does not work, I put everything on a card at the end. In 99% of cases, this fails. But sometimes ...
