  FSR: That was the end of the Championship Leg, right?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Rumors about the end of the Championship Leg, much like the ones about the end of Anand's career, are somewhat premature... ;)

User <chnebelgrind> once became champ,starting out with only 1.000 bucks. So it is possible,but of course much more difficult. BTW the "invitees" are players who have earned their spot by qualification.

<I couldn't think of the right single word at the time.>

I humbly suggest the word "elite".

  technical draw: <offramp> <What would happen if, by some Jeopardy-like magic, a non-invitee with his measly $1,000 outscored the invitees with their mega-bucks?>

I did it once. I came in third starting with the "measly" $1,000.

  offramp: <technical draw>, well done! I hope someone does it this year with their measly $1,000.

I'd like to wish a non-measly New Year to everyone!

  Penguincw: Pay Day should make it easier for us non-qualifiers to finish in the top 10, but of course, the players who probably <could> pull off such a feat, they're probably all starting with 10,000 cbs.

But anything can happen.

  WannaBe: Actually, a 'fun' bet/proposition is who will come in last. (Very similar to Triple Clown Award, in a way...)

The usual <Winner> bet is always fun, but when you have 14 players, a 'Last Place' wager offer can add some spice.

In case of tie, all 'winning' tickets will pay, unless bookie want to do tie breaks with number of wins, wins with black, head-to-head, etc...

Just an idea, probably very silly idea. =))

  Annie K.: I will never put up "last place" type bets, because I don't support being mean to chessplayers. Nobody in last place wants to have attention directed at them. Please just celebrate the winners, and don't try to have fun at the expense of the lowest finishers - there would be no winners without them, so they are already paying enough.

  technical draw: Someone is putting heavy money on all propositions. I don't think that's a winning strategy.
Jan-13-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: We are experimenting with a new automatic seeding function. I think it's a very good innovation for the multi-option bets (openings, Pick-3s, etc.) but I don't think I'm going to like it for the regular bets, at least not automatically (as an option, especially when time is short, possibly). But let's give it a chance for a while. For the statistics fans, this will probably mean another cash pool inflation. ;)

  technical draw: <Barok Espinosa> is always a contender but he hasn't posted since 2013. probably spends his time planning how to win.

  FSR: Crap. Looks like Mamedyarov may scam a draw. There goes $C938.
Jan-19-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Wow, he actually won, which is better for me than a draw because I make a few chessbucks off it.

  Penguincw: Hmm, after my net worth has gone up and down, I currently sit at exactly 1000 cbs. I won't sit here for long, but I see the "Chessbookie" logo has disappeared from my profile, but I still appear on the standings. I assume this is what's supposed to happen?
