  Golden Executive: <Switch> and <Moronovich> are right.

<Pick the correct result of three games from the 2nd round of the London Classic to win. Game 1 is <McShane vs Carlsen>, game 2 is <Nakamura vs Aronian>, and game 3 is <Short vs Kramnik.>>

I got this:

SETTLEMENT DATE: Dec-04-11
PROJECTED PAYOUT: -- (20:1) London Chess Classic: Rd 2: PICK THREE Draw-White-Black
LOSE 100c$
[discard ticket]

Dec-06-11  ycsidney: How on earth did i make nearly 3000 cb on round three pick three with the wrong pick draw black black?

  Chessgames Bookie: We are very sorry for the mistake in the payout for London Chess Classic: Rd 2: PICK THREE.

All payouts have been reversed and those who threw away winning tickets will find the tickets back in their possession.

All people who profited from the error will find their winnings forcefully removed from their account. In the event that you do not have enough funds to pay back, they will be added to your Loanshark debt.

It has a nice ring. Maybe my book tour will turn into a presidential run.
