|Feb-13-15|| ||Penguincw: Oh, and I almost forgot to ask: when is Pay Day? The leg is almost half way over, but there seems to be no announcement of so...|
|Feb-13-15|| ||Annie K.: Good question - I'll pass it on. :)|
|Feb-13-15|| ||greed and death: Just to let you know, there are currently two identical "Pick Three" bets for Zurich Rd. 1...|
|Feb-13-15|| ||Annie K.: Hmm... that's odd, and it's the second time that happens. I'll fix it.|
|Feb-13-15|| ||Annie K.: Thanks, fixed. :)
BTW, if you see something like that, please don't place bets in both. Just come here and report it - if one of those bets is still "empty", that makes deleting it easier.
|Feb-14-15|| ||chessgames.com: <Oh, and I almost forgot to ask: when is Pay Day?>|
Excellent question. We will schedule Pay Day for this coming Wednesday, February 18th.
For those new or who didn't get the memo, that means than an extra 1000 chessbucks will be handed out to everybody.
|Feb-17-15|| ||MarkFinan: Ceegee. How come the winners of the previous leg start with 10000 chessbucks this time around?? They don't even have to bet and they'll most probably be top 10 in this leg!? If it wasn't for them I'd probably be top 10 now.|
|Feb-18-15|| ||Penguincw: Alright! Pay Day has finally come. So glad I don't have to go on welfare...|
|Feb-19-15|| ||MarkFinan: Can someone please explain to me why we all have to start with 1000 cb's, but the last leg winners start with 10000? And I really don't understand why we're all given an extra 1000 cb's half way through either, it seems pretty pointless to me.|
|Feb-22-15|| ||WinKing: < MarkFinan: Can someone please explain to me why we all have to start with 1000 cb's, but the last leg winners start with 10000? >|
Hi <MarkFinan>. I think those that finished in the top ten(or 12 this year I think) during the first three legs legs(spring, summer & fall) start with 10,000 chessbucks for the winter leg. Always been that way as far as I know.
Good incentive if you ask me. Gives you something to shoot for. Some nice prizes if you score high in the winter leg.
|Feb-24-15|| ||MarkFinan: Winking.. Thanks for the answer mate. It may give you more incentive, but I still think it's a little unfair. There's a guy who's never ever made a bet this leg and he's 12th in the table. One 1000 cb banker, like an end of tournament guaranteed draw and he's back in the top ten!|
|Feb-25-15|| ||Kynas: FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi Round 9: Jobava - Vachier-Lagrave : Vachier-Lagrave [discard ticket] 100 LOSE 7:2 4.67 -- Feb-25-15|
Why? MVL won
|Feb-25-15|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Hmm. At the official site http://tbilisi2015.fide.com/compone... I see Vachier-Lagrave has a winning position, but the game is listed as a draw. If that is an error, I will ask <Daniel> to correct the payoffs - let's just wait a little and see what really happened there.|
|Feb-25-15|| ||Chessgames Bookie: OK, the live games page stays a draw, but http://tbilisi2015.fide.com/en/comp... has just been updated, and confirms that Vachier-Lagrave actually won. We'll have this fixed in a bit! :)|
|Feb-25-15|| ||WinKing: In the "European Individual Chess Championship 2015" WINNER bet Fedoseev Vladimir (2684) is listed & was bet on by a few members here but *I don't think* he is playing in the EICC. I waited a round to see if his name would show up in the second round but no dice. Not sure if you refund bets in an instance such as this but I thought I'd bring it to the attention of the <Chessgames Bookie>.|
|Feb-25-15|| ||Annie K.: <WinKing> He was registered a couple of days before the start of the tournament, but you're right, his name is gone from the list now, and he didn't seem to have played at all. In this case, yes, I'll refund his bets.|
|Feb-26-15|| ||Penguincw: < NET WORTH: 2,222 chessbucks >|
Finally my Net Worth is over 2K! And interesting number too...
|Mar-01-15|| ||Penguincw: Woo hoo! Another semi-jackpot!
Cappelle la Grande Round 2: Gharamian - Petkov : Petkov [cash in ticket] 5 YOU WIN! COLLECT 98 19:1 19.60 98 Mar-01-15
I wonder who has the other half...
|Mar-01-15|| ||MarkFinan: Penguincw.. I won 550 from a $5 bet on Tomasevsky to win the last tournament. 🙋|
I just wondered when this leg ends? I don't think the bookies speaking to me for some reason, so does anyone else amongst the gamblers here know?
|Mar-01-15|| ||Annie K.: Hi <Mark> - why wouldn't I be speaking to you? :)|
You addressed your earlier question to <cg>, so I left it to them, but I don't think they usually read this forum.
The Championship leg ends after Aeroflot, April 4.
|Mar-01-15|| ||MarkFinan: Hi Annie.. Sorry, I didn't realise that you were the bookie here! It must have been your predecessor who wasn't speaking to me, lol. And thank you.. April 4th. A month to climb 10 places will be harder than the last few months to reach 19th. My best effort yet though. 🙋|
|Mar-01-15|| ||Annie K.: My great predecessors did some great predecessing here, btw. ;)|
|Mar-02-15|| ||abhishikt: Carlen's rating was lower, so why did the lower ticket lost?|
|Mar-02-15|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <abhishikt> 2863.0 is not lower than 2862.0.|
|Mar-03-15|| ||technical draw: Darn, went to the doc and missed out on some good betting. I cudda been a contender.|
