Jul-16-14  Penguincw: Hi <Chessgames Bookie>. I'd just like to ask a few questions that are good for future reference.

Firstly, I noticed for Biel rd 3: PICK THREE there are some outcomes that no one wagered chessbucks on. If those bets actually win, do all bets get refunded?

Also, I keep hearing <the earlier you place your bets, the better odds you'll get in the end as the market will digest them>. How does that work, like does it really matter if a bet is in 5 hours before the event vs. 5 seconds? Thanks.

In case a pick three outcome no one wagered on happens to hit, all tickets that got two out of three games right will be winners.

<Also, I keep hearing <the earlier you place your bets, the better odds you'll get in the end as the market will digest them>. How does that work, like does it really matter if a bet is in 5 hours before the event vs. 5 seconds? Thanks.>

If your bet is tiny, it likely won't make much of a difference whether you place it 5 hours or 5 seconds before betting closes. (Indeed, with a tiny bet it's usually best to place it as late as possible so you can be sure the odds are in your favor.) However, placing a large bet with 5 seconds to go is usually unwise as you will ruin your own odds; if you make the same large bet earlier, the market will react to the change in odds (i.e. other bettors will see the improved odds for the other outcomes and bet on those instead) and you'll get better odds than you would have if you'd placed your bet later.

There are some exceptions, but the rule of thumb is: if you already know which results you're going to bet on, place your bets as early as possible.

Jul-16-14  SugarDom: Lose big time on TCEC Critter - Houdini. 1000 bucks. ouch!

My fortunes hang today on Meier drawing with Caruana.

Go go Meier!

Er, I mean draw draw Meier!

Jul-16-14  SugarDom: Losing big time at Biel also!
There goes the yellow jersey. :(

  Annie K.: ...and there goes Meier now.

Does this mean no more Watchlist updates? ;)

I'm back in the black, myself...

BTW, the Hou Special (both wins and losses) could be paid off already? :)

Jul-16-14  Penguincw: You just gotta love Leko. :)

You mean <SwitchingQuylthulg>? He's actually an "admin" this leg and won't be playing this leg.

  WannaBe: If you are playing the Dort/Biel/ACP draws betting slip, here are the lineup:

Kramnik-Caruana
Leko-Naiditsch
Ponomariov-Baramidze
Meier-Adams

Harikrishna-Wojtaszek
Vachier-Lagrave-Giri
Motylev-Hou

Vocaturo-Sutovsky

  WannaBe: If you are playing the Dortmund/Biel Round 6 O/U 64 moves betting slip, here is the full lineup:

Caruana - Adams
Baramidze-Meier
Naiditsch-Ponomariov
Kramnik-Leko

Harikrishna-Vachier-Lagrave
Wojtaszek-Motylev
Giri-Hou

I think, personal opinion, Giri-Hou have the best chance of going over 64.

  whiteshark: re Olympiad (Women): RUSSIA ALLOWED TO PLAY?

I think this article (where the organisers said they will allow the relevant teams to play) means <YES>: http://en.chessbase.com/post/organi...

  Chessgames Bookie: <whiteshark> It does seem likely now that the <YES> ticket is a winner, but we will wait for further developments before paying it off.
Jul-21-14  MarkFinan: I was just about to ask the same. So they're taking part and us "Yes" gamblers get paid? Well if they've played a game then they're participating.

  Sneaky: To the moooooooooooooooon!!!

<ACP Golden Classic rd 7: PICK THREE : Draw-Black-Black [cash in ticket] 2 YOU WIN! COLLECT 428> I'll keep putting down 2 bucks on every pick three nobody else wants, every day, all day.

Plus this didn't hurt:

<Dortmund rd 7: Ponomariov-Kramnik : Ponomariov [cash in ticket] 25 YOU WIN! COLLECT 151>

Kramnik is like that little girl the children's poem:

There once was a player,
A Kasparov slayer,
With quite an expansive forehead.
When he was good,
He was very good indeed,
But when he was bad he was horrid.

Jul-22-14  MarkFinan: Still not paid out for the Russian women's team? They've either played or they haven't, and... I need the dough bro 😄

  Chessgames Bookie: <MarkFinan: Still not paid out for the Russian women's team? They've either played or they haven't, and...>

...the latter is the case. It would be a miracle if they <had> played, given that the first round is scheduled for August 2 - which, as it happens, is also the scheduled settlement date.
