Depends on the household, doesn't it.
|Feb-04-16|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <Beholder: Depends on the household, doesn't it.>|
It most certainly does <Beholder>. :)
|Feb-04-16|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <WannaBe: <Bookie> You can open a bet on this (if you wish):|
Any match or tournament is becoming an option <WannaBe>. The pickens' for top tier chess are a little slim right now. I'm gonna try my best to keep games on the betting board.
|Feb-04-16|| ||Chnebelgrind: <Any match or tournament is becoming an Option> Here is one
|Feb-04-16|| ||Chessgames Bookie: <Chnebelgrind: <Any match or tournament is becoming an Option> Here is one http://www.zurich-cc.com/>|
Thanks <Chnebelgrind> that is definitely an option. Hopefully they give enough notice with the pairings. We will have to wait & see.
|Feb-05-16|| ||FSR: This is hilarious. I accidentally bet 100 CBs on Gawain Jones to win. I had meant to bet on a draw; I figured that the odds of Jones winning as Black against Yu Yangyi were infinitesimal. So of course Jones did win and I pocketed 1298 CBs! My best bet by far of the championship leg thus far.|
|Feb-05-16|| ||MarkFinan: Well done Frederick.
<chessgames.com: Now now Mark, you know I'd walk the extra mile for you.>
I highly doubt that, lol.
<I thought I did refund your extra ticket but I thought it was for 100 cb, so perhaps I'm thinking of centralfiles.>
You're thinking of centraflies.
<Please let me know the bet that it was on and I'll look it up.>
I posted it in this forum a few weeks ago, I can't remember the players. The bookie said he'd contacted you about it so I thought you already knew.
<<I put 10 and 30 on the Ragger MVL game yesterday, not 100 and 300!> I'm not sure what to say about that. The logs show 100 and 300. If it's any consolation, you would have gotten paid on the larger amount had they have won.>
No consolation at all, lol. If it happens again I'm kicking up a fuss though. I've lost a total of 550 due to someone else messing up, not me.

|Feb-07-16|| ||chessgames.com: <MarkFinan> 150 cb credited to your account.|
|Feb-07-16|| ||Annie K.: A Zurich Winner bet would be nice? :)|
|Feb-08-16|| ||MarkFinan: Thank you <chessgames>.|
|Feb-08-16|| ||chessgames.com: Wait a minute, Mark, I'm sorry, those 150 were just deducted again. I thought you were caught in what I now call the "double click" bug, where you can end up with multiple tickets for the same bet. Now that I examine it, this seems different.|
What exactly is the reason you claim been shorted 150 cb? It has to do with this claim Chessgames Bookie chessforum (kibitz #10275) regarding Tata Steel 2016 Round 7: Caruana - Ding , is that right?
I don't want to discuss the logfiles here because it shows your betting habits which is confidential. If you'd like to email me an explain the scenario I'll hear you out.
Sorry about the back-and-forth here, I just want to get it settled properly.
|Feb-08-16|| ||Keyser Soze: Embarrassing..|
|Feb-08-16|| ||Beholder: <MarkFinan: Thank you <chessgames>.>|
Wow, Mark, now you know what Miss Colombia have felt.
|Feb-08-16|| ||MarkFinan: <Tata Steel 2016 Round 7: Caruana - Ding : Draw [info] Tata Steel 2016 Round 7: Caruana - Ding : Draw]>|
This be the reason. I had 2 bets on the same wager. One at 500 and one at 150 on the same game to be drawn. I never put bets on the same wager because it's impossible. I could have put 500 and then 150 but it would just add up to 650. I'm not bothered you can keep the cb's I'm just proving my point as I did the other week.
<Keyser Soze: Embarrassing..>
And there's absolutely no reason why you should be here repeating your mothers first word to you. Yikes! 😂😂😂😂
|Feb-08-16|| ||MarkFinan: In fact I've changed my mind. I didn't mean to put the <500> on the bet. I'll definitely have that back. |
|Feb-08-16|| ||Keyser Soze: <beholder>
The `` not so funny part`` is that`s the second time already that happened. Have Daniel not changed his mind, for sure he would kept the money. And it was just a fun a simple game..man..
<And there's absolutely no reason why you should be here repeating your mothers first word to you. >
I bet it was the same first word your daddy might have said when visiting you at Armley Gaol.
|Feb-08-16|| ||MarkFinan: Yup. It's my fault that the chessbookie's isn't "fun a simple game" LMAO 😂😂😂😂😂|
'So Gringo. Where were you on 22th November 1963? Admit huh?? You kill JFK and hurt Pele in training at school and you caused all of global warming"
I'm guilty, hahahaha 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
|Feb-08-16|| ||chessgames.com: Mark, the bug did happen to you—that there is no doubt. But here's the problem: your post Chessgames Bookie chessforum (kibitz #10275) was made at <2016-01-23 14:04:17> but the bet was settled at <2016-01-23 13:18:52>. So it's like you're taking a losing ticket to the window, after it's been declared, and asking for a refund.|
|Feb-09-16|| ||MarkFinan: <chessgames.com: Mark, the bug did happen to you—that there is no doubt>|
Daniel.. It doesn't matter. It's only a few hundred cb's and I still have 11000. If it happens again though I'm bringing it straight to your attention. I told the chessbookie when it happened, I had both <losing tickets> for a few days that I hadn't discarded, I posted them here. With the exception of emailing you at the time there's not a lot else I could/can do about it and I've a lot going on.
And I seem to have offended <Keyser Soze> in the process.. I didn't want to upset him and ruin the game, lol.
|Feb-11-16|| ||Annie K.: FIDE Women's Grand Prix started in Tehran - looks like an interesting event: http://tehran2016.fide.com/en/compo...|
|Feb-12-16|| ||Chessgames Bookie: The Zurich Chess Challenge is holding a blitz tournament in a little over an hour to determine the color distribution for the main event. This match will *not* count towards the scores. Hopefully we will get some pairings shortly thereafter. I will try & get some pairings up as soon as they become available. There may not be much time to get your Round 1 bets in. Just giving all members playing a heads-up.|
|Feb-12-16|| ||Chessgames Bookie: The blitz games can be followed here:
Look for the caption 'Zürich Chess Challenge 2016 - Opening Blitz'.
Players receive 4 minutes plus 2 seconds per move for the entire game.
