|Jan-25-15|| ||Annie K.: <chancho> I think I'm more in the curtain-shredding business... ;p|
Um, where have you been until now?! :)
|Jan-25-15|| ||chancho: Oh, I've known you were the Chessbookie for quite a while now, Annie.|
I was just trying to be <smart alecky>.
|Jan-25-15|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Just get betting! ;p
Memo - coming up soon: http://www.grenkechessclassic.de/en...
|Jan-26-15|| ||Beholder: <Will any game last 100 moves or longer? The YES ticket will pay if White makes his (or her) 100th move in any game. If this does not happen, the NO ticket pays.
(This wager refers only to the Masters tournament)>|
Does this apply to the whole tournament or just the first round? Seems unclear from the description.
|Jan-26-15|| ||Annie K.: Bets that apply to a particular round always have the round number in the title.|
|Jan-26-15|| ||bubuli55: Does anybody know the ELO of Wei Yi after Tara? I can't find it. Thank you in advance.|
|Jan-26-15|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <bubuli55> 2695.4|
|Jan-26-15|| ||Beholder: <Annie K.> Ok, thanks.|
|Jan-26-15|| ||Sneaky: I always find myself always betting on the underdogs to win a tournament, because the odds are so good. And by "underdogs" I mean, anybody who is not Magnus Carlsen. So I'll have 500 on Aronian, 500 on Caruana, even a few shekels on Ivanchuk. 75:1 odds on Chuky? That sounds pretty good to me!|
But during the tournament I find myself betting on Carlsen anyhow. So I make money during the tournament and then give it back when it's over. Now I'm back with the same balance I started with.
|Jan-26-15|| ||Chessgames Bookie: New bet just up... :)
Tradewise Gibraltar: Last Round With Perfect Score
|Jan-26-15|| ||WannaBe: 10-round Swiss for the top section, so I'd guess/wager round 7 or 8. And have bett'd accordingly. =)|
|Jan-26-15|| ||bubuli55: < Switch > Thanks again :)|
|Jan-26-15|| ||Annie K.: Round 1 pairings are up: http://chess-results.com/tnr158561.... but they are so one-sided at the top, I'm not sure there's any point in putting up individual bets for this round; the Upset bet pretty much covers the only question. :s|
|Jan-26-15|| ||WannaBe: Understood...|
|Jan-26-15|| ||Annie K.: Thanks. :) Hmm... maybe things are desperate enough for a couple of first move bets? ;)|
|Jan-26-15|| ||Penguincw: < but they are so one-sided at the top, I'm not sure there's any point in putting up individual bets for this round >|
< Hmm... maybe things are desperate enough for a couple of first move bets? ;) >
It could be more desperate:
1-0, 1.e4 ending in an odd # of moves
1-0, 1.e4 ending in an even # of moves
1-0, 1.d4 ending in an even # of moves
1-0, 1.d4 ending in an odd # of moves
For purposes of this bet, if the game begins with 1.e4 and ends with 28.Kxf4 1-0, then the "1-0, 1.e4 ending in an even # of moves" ticket would win.
Looks like luck to me. :p
|Jan-26-15|| ||Annie K.: <Penguincw> if you keep this up, I'll draft you into the Bookie lineup... ;p|
|Jan-27-15|| ||Penguincw: Hmm. A slow start to Round 1, as Tradewise Gibraltar Round 1: Hou's First Move made 1 chessbuck in juice. :p|
Not quite the lowest though...
|Jan-28-15|| ||centralfiles: Hey I think its the first time I had the privilege of being in last place, and with a 10000 start to boot, quite an impressive performance.
<144. centralfiles -1,764 >|
|Jan-29-15|| ||WannaBe: Round 4 (pairings) are out! C'mon bookie, chop chop!! =))|
Naka is playing Grandelius
|Jan-29-15|| ||Annie K.: Heh - ok, I'll get right on it! :p
Better wait until the wagers are actually finished before you start placing bets, though. I'll say when. ;)
|Jan-29-15|| ||Annie K.: When! :)|
|Jan-30-15|| ||WannaBe: Okay, bookie, don't list any more bets, because I am losing my shirt!!!|
|Jan-30-15|| ||Annie K.: Wabbits don't need shirts. :)|

That moment when 10K exactly is not enough to be in the Top 12...
