  MarkFinan: Okay Bookie ,thanks very much. My plan was to try reach 5000 and then wait, but I'll aim a little higher just in case.

  Sneaky: Michael Adams at 143:1. When will people learn, he's basically the British Kramnik. So very tough to beat. If he can sneak a few wins in he'll be right up there at the top.

I imagine that this leg for me will be like "one day I'm on the leaderboard, the next day I'm not". Too bad top 10 is required to qualify...

< Sneaky: Michael Adams at 143:1. When will people learn, he's basically the British Kramnik. So very tough to beat. If he can sneak a few wins in he'll be right up there at the top. >

Thanks for the advice (j/k, I usually don't bet on long-term bets).

That he is, but not quite the same thing as the real Kramnik.

<Chnebelgrind> is quite capable of racking up huge profits even when I do play; he's one of the all-time greats.

  Chnebelgrind: Thanks <Switch>. Too much honour ! I am betting according to some basic principles, which I exposed in detail on my forum (around p 22). By the way it are the same principles which were posted by <Sneaky> on this forum years ago. When I take the time to calculate the odds seriously it works quite good. Yesterday the odds for Short-, Vallejo- and Ganguly-draws were that good that I had to put 1 kilo on each oft them. And I was lucky:-)

  MarkFinan: Seems like the British Kramnik has turned into.... well the British Nigel Short, lol. I think that I've finally figured out how to edge up the table with little 200 cb's increases per round, although this round I lost a few $$$!? Just like playing chess you have to be patient with it, but some of you guys who are <regularly> top ten could <literally> make real 💰 $$$ from betting on chess games. For all I know you already do, all you need is a few hundred quid to get started.

<Penguincw> I did reply to your post in my forum but the admins here deleted it. Thank you for the info, coming #1 out of the non leg winners would have been better if I'd won something though, lol.

  Penguincw: < I think that I've finally figured out how to edge up the table with little 200 cb's increases per round ... >

Ha. "Little 200 cb's increases". For me, 200 cbs increase is normally a <good> day, as I always try to inch my way up to the leaderboard. I'm not really a risk taker tbh, although that may change. Today, I gained 32 cbs, and yesterday, I profitted 70. For now, it's working, but it usually doesn't when the big tournaments are gone. So, does "slow and steady win this race"?

< I did reply to your post in my forum but the admins here deleted it. Thank you for the info, coming #1 out of the non leg winners would have been better if I'd won something though, lol. >

Yes, I did see your post (I'm one of those people who go to their profiles and click on their posts everytime a star shows up). I can't remember what it said, but I saw it. :)

  MarkFinan: Well I've put 4500 on today's games. My own 3000 and I borrowed 1500 from the loanshark. This tactic worked at the end of the last leg by taking me to nearly 8000 cb's. I'll either be clear first or dwelling with Wally the Rhino, lol.

  Penguincw: <MarkFinan> Why don't you try my strategy: small profits at a time. I don't think I've had a +100 round for a week, but I haven't had an overall lost in that same time period. Thanks to that strategy, I'm 8th on the leaderboard. :)

Then there's the other side of the spectrum: <Chnebelgrind>. Yesterday, he lost about 1K, but he's rebounded by picking up about 4.5K today.

It just shows that the bed is one of the most dangerous places.E.g.many people die in bed.

  Chnebelgrind: <centralfiles> I am sorry. Just before closing time there were only 98 bucks on DBD (1.75% of the total of bettings). My estimation for this event was 5.53% (Calsen Draw 67%, Caruana Win 14 %, So Draw 59%): So I added 192 bucks!

<moronovich> LOL!

  MarkFinan: Annie.. No chance of that, I'm addicted now, lol. And my 3 bets on an RL opening, number of moves and BxN? have paid me over 1000cb' so far this morning, all I need is a few draws and I'm over 4000. 🙋

  Penguincw: Grr, I suffered my first overall loss in about a week, dropping about 150 (which is pretty big, considering I usually don't make more than 100/day).

Well played bookie...

A bit of feedback: one thing I always like is "live betting". Unfortunately, I prefer not to wake up early just to bet a few bucks, but I think during the summer leg, you had this one bet where you put up a game bet that would be open <before> the game took place and close <while> the game was in progress.

Anyway, good job with the bets, that <seem> so easy to win, but in reality are not...
