Kudos! =)

  MarkFinan: From 5th to 10th! I think the most cb's I've had is roughly 6300, so a 500 cb drop and I've gone down to 10th. I know my luck, I'll finish 11th only 1 darn chess buck behind 10th! From round 1-4 (of the tournament in Norway) I bet around 500 cb's per round and I was even 2nd at one point, in the later rounds I got braver and gambled around 1500 per round but I didn't anticipate all these Jonny come lately's. I'm just going to go for it in this tournament, all or nothing...

<<Penguincw: < TITIKIZA: I bet 400 on Topalov winning Norway chess 2015. Got almost 12000 for it. Thank you Topa > Congrats (FTR, my guess on how you made that much money was 7.5K on the draw :p ).

In other news, P3 is 204:1 odds!

I had a good day, gaining 143 cbs.>>

I'm jealous, lol. Well done buddy.

I don't know much about gambling, but if you're ahead/doing well in a contest, you should be playing safe, as there's no reason to be taking many chances. You'll only risk falling.

Unless of course, your strategy to success was to taking big risks. If so, keep doing what you're doing. :)

  MarkFinan: <Pcw> Even if I'd played it safe and hadn't had one solitary wager I'd have still dropped down to 9th. I'm going to wait for the right time and put all my cb's on those later rounds when you can tell they're all going to be playing for draws. People who haven't been nowhere near the leaderboard are now in a good position to win the thing.

  FSR: <ChessBookie> There are some typos and such in your Hall of Fame. <Qualifying> is misspelled throughout as <Qualifiying>. The 2014-15 lists of qualifiers are missing the "and" before the last person, except that there is one "amd" (Fall 2014). There is a period missing after <AnotherBike>.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <FSR> Also, it says < CHAMPIONSHIP LEG> after most Winter Legs, but not 2009 and 2015 :) And the runners-up from the first two Winter Legs are described only as "runners up", not "qualifiying runners up", although they did qualify for the next Winter Leg just as happened in later years.

  Penguincw: Oh, and don't forget the fact that on the Help Page, one bet says "Wang Hoa" instead of "Wang Hao". :)

  FSR: Uh oh. Hambleton found a nice resource -a pseudo-queen sac - which Komodo says equalizes for him. Bad news for those of us who were banking on Chukky to thrash him, and in fewer than 40 moves.

  Penguincw: Just when I thought Ivanchuk-Hambleton was an easy bet. :|

Just hoping Ivanchuk can beat Hambleton, in any fashion (hopefully this game doesn't finish before I sleep; don't want to get a bad night's sleep).

  FSR: Drawn in 37. 800 cbs down the toilet. <Sob>

  Penguincw: R.I.P. 1125 cbs (and my chances of being a qualifiying runner up).

  FSR: It gets worse. Shankland's king wandered out to the fifth rank, with the predictable result, against Wang Hao. Looks like that momentary 8th place in the standings will be my zenith.

  Sneaky: I asked my Magic 8-Ball if Arkadi will do well at Dortmund. The answer came back: "Outlook good." So there you have it folks. Bet against Naiditsch at your own peril.

  Penguincw: Edmonton rd 7: Ivanchuk (2733) - Hambleton (2446) : Ivanchuk [discard ticket] 1000 LOSE 1:3 1.36 -- Jun-27-15

  Penguincw: Stunning. Looking at Dortmund rd 1: PICK THREE, no one put money on WWW, WWB or DWW (the latter came close to happening). Also, WWD, BWW and BWB were potential jackpots. In the end, the winning P3 (DWD), pays 309:1 odds!

  Penguincw: (continues with more complaining/ranting that should be disregarded)

I can't believe this ticket lost!

Dortmund rd 2: BENDER'S OPENING DOUBLE : Both [discard ticket] 25 LOSE 4:5 1.80 -- Jun-28-15

I then looked at the games, and I see Caruana played 1.Nf3 and <THEN> 2.e4. What kind of sorcery is this?

  FSR: <Penguincw> Tell me about it!!! What a dirty trick!! It may be a <harmless transposition> to him, but it's disaster to us! Many more cbs down the toilet today. I also bet on Hou Yifan to draw. My moment in the sun (slightly) is rapidly fading.
