|Jan-13-14|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <Bookie> Tata Steel rd 4: PICK THREE currently features three round 3 games... the same ones, in fact, as the round 3 pick three.|
|Jan-13-14|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Ooops, we'll issue refunds and make a right one shortly.|
|Jan-13-14|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: It now features three round 5 games and no actual options are offered. One more attempt, perhaps? ;-)|
|Jan-16-14|| ||Sneaky: Man, I can't pick a winner to save my life. I just threw away 6 losing tickets all from the same round. Could you do that bad if you tried?|
Well, at least I got my pick three's. One lucky shot and I'll be back in the game.
|Jan-18-14|| ||Beholder: <119. SwitchingQuylthulg -6,942>|
Oh how the mighty have fallen.
|Jan-18-14|| ||AnimusEtOblivio: Dang, <Absentee> is already at 32k? I think I forgot how intense this championship leg is.|
Time to kick things into high gear!
|Jan-21-14|| ||SoUnwiseTheKnight B4: The qualifiers' party on the leaderboard has been crashed by a Buttinski!|
|Jan-23-14|| ||Sneaky: <Tata Steel rd 5: PICK THREE : White-Black-White [cash in ticket] 25 YOU WIN! COLLECT 872 34:1>|
Finally I get lucky! Too bad it was chump change.
|Jan-26-14|| ||SoUnwiseTheKnight B4: Another van Wely pick three miracle, that's pretty wily of him. I won't be fooled the next time.|
|Jan-29-14|| ||Chessgames Bookie: The Zurich: WINNER (overall) bet is for the 5 round single-round-robin classical. |
I've been informed that the blitz games today will be used as a tiebreaker for the classical rounds, so you might want to see how that finishes up before placing your wagers.
|Jan-29-14|| ||dakgootje: Hi mister chessbookie sir!
Will the 3 daily Zurich games be supplemented with Gibraltar games, for additional excitement and entertainment for all between the ages of 8 and 88 in this <Super World Bowl Final Ultimate Leg of Betting Prowess (#8)>?
|Jan-29-14|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <dakgooteje> We will throw in some Gibraltar bets if possible, but in Swiss events there's a narrow window available where we can get the next day's pairings and post the bets.|
Meanwhile I am refreshing http://www.zurich-cc.com/pairings.h... every 10 seconds to see what the pairings are for the first round of Zurich.
|Jan-29-14|| ||dakgootje: Ah yes, fair enough.
In any case, the Gibraltar pairings are always up fairly early at
|Jan-30-14|| ||abhishikt: Pick-3 of round-2 lists wrong pairings.|
|Jan-30-14|| ||Nightranger: Pick 3 for round 2 has the pairings wrong|
|Jan-30-14|| ||Chessgames Bookie: My mistake! I just refunded all bets and put this one up as a replacement:|
Zurich rd 2: DAILY DOUBLE
|Jan-31-14|| ||SoUnwiseTheKnight B4: Don't drop the Gibraltar games just because Zurich is in full swing, that's making it too easy for the dude in first place. Put up Gibraltar games!|
|Feb-03-14|| ||Touch of Knight: <Bookie> Note that the rapid games start 2 hours earlier than did the classical games|
|Feb-07-14|| ||Chnebelgrind: Gibraltar WINNER:
Vitiugov also came to 8 points like Ivanchuk and Cheparinov. See
and was playing the play-off.
Shouldn't the "OTHER"-ticket pay than?
|Feb-07-14|| ||vector: Why wasn't I given credit for "other" when my pick was Vitiugov?|
|Feb-08-14|| ||wordfunph: <Bookie> let's make this Championship Leg exciting, how about German Bundesliga 2013/2014?|
|Feb-09-14|| ||Chessgames Bookie: I'm very sorry, we were missing a game by Vitiugov and were unaware that he was tied for first.|
We will reprocess the payment for the Gibraltar: WINNER wager shortly with a 3-way payoff then update the leaderboard.
|Feb-12-14|| ||MarkFinan: Dodgy Bookie, lol. I have a $25 bet on at 24:1 and although maths isn't exactly my strong point I still figure it should be more than $187?|
SETTLEMENT DATE: Feb-06-14

|Feb-13-14|| ||Chnebelgrind: <MarkFinan> There were 3 winners and so the pot is splitted. See page 191 (Jul-29-10) of this forum, how ChessgamesBookie does manage this case.|
|Feb-13-14|| ||MarkFinan: Chnenlgrind.. I clicked on once I read some kibitzing but it was too late to delete.. I should really read the old kibitzing when I've posted on game pages too because I often pose a question that someone answered years ago, lol. Thanks anyway 😃|
