  Annie K.: Thanks, <Switch>, no worries - I've been seeing nothing but exemplary behavior here for quite a while now. Probably a first on the internet. ;p

Have fun everybody! It's <Switch> in charge of exotics (which means the whole team events aspect), and he may also try to save y'all from getting too bored with all the regular betting you'll be getting from me the rest of the leg. Ready, set, go! :)

  sydbarrett: Missed the first day of betting... too bad and sad for me because my betting style would have won 100-200 bucks with those results. AVE Novy Bor - Valerenga ending on "tie" today is like having the wheel land on "zero" in roulette... improbable. Syd getting angry >:(

Premium Chessgames Member
  sydbarrett: Oh no I forgot to bet in the early morning today. Surely Alkaloid will beat Mednyi (superGMs vs normal GMs). And the bet pays Alkaloid $2 per $1 bet. I hate to see more easy money pass me by :/

  morfishine: <Chessgames.com> & the <Bookie> Very nice lineup for the fall leg! The World Championship adds an interesting spice to this leg!

Looks like a lot of people did. I'm currently in 12th place at 950. Hmm.

  Annie K.: Meh. Still no pairings out for IoM round 1, with 12 hours left. That means there won't be bets for round 1. Let's hope they get their act together for the rest of the tournament. :/
