|Aug-02-18|| ||Annie K.: <morfishine> thanks.|
And, I guess, a heartfelt thanks should go to GM Vaibhav for winning the Biel masters tournament...
|Aug-02-18|| ||sydbarrett: I should thank him the most. I'm the only one who put money on him. :-)|
|Aug-03-18|| ||Annie K.: <jingohanson> hello. In case you have been trying to write to email@example.com, please read about Daniel Freeman.|
Nobody is answering that email for the moment - if you would like to continue helping with Bookie administration, you need to keep in touch by reading this forum regularly. Also, please do not settle any controversial or uncertain bets, leave anything other than routine settlements to me. We can't afford mistakes right now. Thank you.
|Aug-03-18|| ||wallytherhino: What is going on?
The last bet was titled "jingohanson please read the Bookie forum"
|Aug-03-18|| ||Annie K.: I am trying to get his attention at the one place he is sure to check sooner or later.|
There's no other action until Sinquefield anyway.
As for what else is going on, please read Daniel Freeman.
|Aug-04-18|| ||Marmot PFL: I wish they had covered the Chinese tournament. Very even field but I had Yu Yangyi from the get go. But no money left to bet with anyway, and I don't like borrowing from the syndicate.|
|Aug-07-18|| ||morfishine: <Marmot PFL> Borrow, borrow, borrow! Its all monopoly money or CB's|
|Aug-09-18|| ||Annie K.: <jingohanson> thanks, I emailed you.|
|Aug-10-18|| ||Annie K.: I put up bets for the St. Louis Rapid & Blitz event.|
<jingohanson> I deleted your post to protect your email.

A sign of normalcy? Or at least as normalcy as cg.c can get?

Karjakin - Aronian
Dominguez - Vachier-Lagrave
Anand - Nakamura
So - Mamedyarov

Nakamura - So
Vachier-Lagrave - Anand
Karjakin - Dominguez
Dominguez - Aronian
Anand - Karjakin
So - Vachier-Lagrave

|Aug-11-18|| ||Annie K.: <WinKing> do you still have the keys to the Bookie? Would you like to put up some bets?|
|Aug-11-18|| ||WinKing: I can put up some Rapid bets for rounds 4 thru 9. Would that be O.K. <Annie K.>?|
|Aug-11-18|| ||Annie K.: That would be fine with me, thanks. Btw, Daniel thought there wouldn't be any problem even if two Bookies tried paying off the same bet, and this leg even with <jingohanson> paying off some bets, I would settle anything I found open when I dropped by. If we want to be really careful though, maybe we should each pay off the bets we set up. <jingo> decided to step aside.|
|Aug-11-18|| ||WinKing: Ok <Annie K.>. I will get some bets up for the Rapid portion of St. Louis 2018.|
|Aug-13-18|| ||sydbarrett: Whoever put 500 bucks on W-D-W EARLY in the Pick Three bet today, you are a genius. I am in awe... took all my money. First place will have to wait. :-/|
|Aug-13-18|| ||morfishine: <sydbarrett> That was me, thank you very much, I had 500 riding on a long shot WDW and it paid 1,856|
I'm back in business baby!
|Aug-13-18|| ||moronovich: When you combine madness,cleverness and <morfishine> we deal with an unknown force ! :)|
|Aug-13-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: I saw that I'd dropped down from 4th to 5th. Now I know why. I was run over by the <morf> express. Well played..|
|Aug-14-18|| ||morfishine: <moronovich> & <Count Wedgemore> Sometimes luck pays off but sometimes it doesn't! In the last game of Biel its was Carlsen vs the doormat Nico Georgiadis: Carlsen vs N Georgiadis, 2018|
I figured Carlsen lacked incentive having lost to Mamedyarov and with it any chance of 1st prize. So I plunked down 1,000 CB's to draw paying 3.5 odds. Sure enough, the position arrived at a dead draw with R+B vs Carlsen's R+N, but Carlsen had an ugly doubled pawn to boot! I was gleefully calculating that my winnings of 3,500 CB's would propel me into 1st place. It was just a matter of time before they shook hands.
But alas, Nico made a dreadful, positively horrific blooper and lost :(
These luck things can work both ways
|Aug-14-18|| ||sydbarrett: I think Carlsen's incentive is to not lose rating points and to destroy destroy. But yeah I had some money riding on draw too because why not (I think it was a good strat too)...|
Will there be any bets before Olympiad? Four weeks is a long idle time.
|Aug-14-18|| ||sydbarrett: Mamedyarov blowing a win against Naka. Karjakin losing to Caruana. Ow, and ow. O_O|
|Aug-14-18|| ||morfishine: <sydbarrett> I would ask <Winking> or <Annie K.> if there are any other tournaments that they could at least offer up some games to wager on...|
|Aug-14-18|| ||Annie K.: Sure, the actual (classical) Sinquefield starts on the 18th. The "St Louis" events were only the first part of it.|
