  Chessgames Bookie: The Spring Leg will end no earlier than July 15; most likely, it will end on July 23 with betting on the last round of the Bilbao Masters.

Edmonton rd 8: Midsummer Night's Special

Good luck, and have fun!

Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: For the purpose of the upcoming Midsummer Night's Special bet I did an unofficial count of King moves vs. Queen moves for the first 7 rounds of the 11th Edmonton International Chess Tournament 2016. Here are my findings:

Rd1: 33-29 (More King moves) w/No underpromotions
Rd2: 63-36 (More Queen moves) w/No underpromotions
Rd3: 57-49 (More Queen moves) w/No underpromotions
Rd4: 59-36 (More Queen moves) w/No underpromotions
Rd5: 71-27 (More Queen moves) w/No underpromotions
Rd6: 71-36 (More Queen moves) w/No underpromotions
Rd7: 41-30 (More Queen moves) w/No underpromotions

The King moves have only won the first round with rounds 2 thru 7 having more Queen moves. None of the games had an underpromotion. For the King moves to have a chance you need at least one Queenless endgame in the round from what I can see. There haven't been many of those to this point in time. Looks like the 'Yes' pick should be the odds on favorite and is so far.

  brankat: "Yes" pick is the favourite, except at 1.31 there is no money there. That's been the problem with the "mini-doubles", too. No point in betting.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: Sorry, you'll need to ask Daniel Freeman about the Leuven blitz bets; he was supposed to sort them out long ago, and I have no idea what's caused the delay. Last I heard, <Annie> was going to prod him; apparently that didn't help.

I did (I emailed him on Tuesday), but he hasn't replied yet (normally he replies within 24 hours). :(

Jul-22-16  gauer: Not sure if you guys wanted any events to follow after a new leg in July: Biographer Bistro (kibitz #14454) (includes pgn/cross-table links to the upcoming Calgary tournament and Championnat Ouvert du Québec).

http://wyco2016chess.sk/en/live , http://www.chess-results.com/partie... or http://www.chess-results.com/tnr229... are some of the games covered for the 2016 World youth chess Olympiad at Slovakia. The 2016 USA Junior championship also just finished, with nice results by Liang and Xiong, too.

Is it best to post at (a) Chessgames Bookie chessforum , (b) User: chessgames.com , (c) <in the notes section of> PGN Upload Utility or (d) Biographer Bistro when one finds a bulk pgn source, especially when the PGN upload queue can be filled up!?

  WinKing: Congratulations <Chnebelgrind> on winning the Spring Leg! You had a very strong finish - well done.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Chnebelgrind: Thanks <WinKing> and congrats for your 3th rank. After <Touch of Knight>s strike yesterday I have decided to risk it all for the victory. In the final rd I had 12200 bucks on the line (my 8200 and 4000 loan), all of them on Draws and DDD. Half of the Money on each of this tickets was mine. Bad luck for <Touch> who already has finished 8 times on rank 2 or 3.

Wow, now that's what I call 'going all in'. I just played a few hundred chessbucks on the 'longshots' which of course really had very little chance of winning.

  chessgames.com: Hi folks,

<Chnebelgrind> is the official winner.

This is the point where we go over log files to make sure everything is on the up-and-up. I'll make a post tomorrow to that effect, and will hopefully be able to give a start-date for the next leg.

  Chnebelgrind: <Touch of Knight> Thanks. It is like in am bicycle race: For the finish it is better to be in second place :-)
