|Feb-22-12|| ||chessgames.com: A few things here:
First, some old errata, am I to understand that people STILL haven't been paid off correctly for Aeroflot Open Rd3: PICK THREE?
We tried to fix that, in fact you can see the official winner has been switched, but possibly there was a problem in how losing tickets were converted into winners. If somebody is having problems we'll happily look into it. As I recall there were only a handful of winners here so in the worst case it's no big deal to review every person effected one by one.
Next question, are there any <bets> on the horizon? I keep learning about relatively minor events like the ACP Women's Cup and the Chebanenko Memorial, only after they've begun or even finished. If anybody sees a good event that's coming up soon please let me know and I'll be happy to put some wagers up.
|Feb-22-12|| ||Penguincw: <Events>
All I see is the Polish Championship, currently in Round 5 of 9.
The only problem is that I can't find the pairings. Hopefully someone can find it, or at least speak Polish. :)
|Feb-22-12|| ||Penguincw: Oops. I forgot to mention. In less than two weeks, the Reykjavik Open begins. You can at least do one for winner. Caruana and Navara will participate.|

No, you paid that off correctly in the end :) <Penguincw> was just saying it only happened when the matter was brought up in the Member Support Forum.

|Feb-24-12|| ||chessgames.com: We put up some bets for the Polish Championship. We're going to hold off a few days with the Reykjavik Open just in case some more big names register to play.|
|Feb-24-12|| ||Penguincw: Thanks for the events!|
|Feb-25-12|| ||wordfunph: <chessgames.com>
|Feb-25-12|| ||Penguincw: The bets currently close in 2 minutes. It's 9:00 EST right now. So it's closed at 9:02?|
|Feb-25-12|| ||wordfunph: Polish Championship live games link please?|
|Feb-25-12|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <wordfunph> Try http://mp2012.pzszach.pl/node/7|
FICS is also relaying the games as usual :-)
<Penguincw> Bookie's clock is probably slow again... at least this time there weren't any bets on openings :)
|Feb-25-12|| ||wordfunph: <Switch> thank you.|
go 3 Draws! :)

|Feb-25-12|| ||dakgootje: That game has some transmission errors.
Either that - or both have turned into <1000 elo patzers.
|Feb-25-12|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <dakkie> <wordfunph> Fixed now :)|
|Feb-25-12|| ||Penguincw: Looks like I'm going to have a bad round.|
|Feb-25-12|| ||Penguincw: Yep. I am right, so far.
|Feb-25-12|| ||Penguincw: It's official. I lose at least 87. I regret not looking at the standings first. :(|
|Feb-25-12|| ||dakgootje: New objective: bridge the gap to <TD> ;)|
Roughly 6.1k difference at moment of writing - but that should decrease after this round has been paid out :)
|Feb-25-12|| ||chessgames.com: Is round 9 the final round, and if so, does it start earlier than the others? We put a cutoff at 6:00am EST until we learn otherwise.|
|Feb-25-12|| ||dakgootje: Round 9 is the final round indeed. It starts 6 hours earlier, don't really know what that is in EST.|
Former rounds are given to have started at 3pm; round-9 starts at 9am. Suppose both are gmt+1 which would make it.. something like 3am EST?
|Feb-25-12|| ||Penguincw: Yep it's the final round, as noted on http://www.2700chess.com/. Also, I believe it does start at 3am. I can tell you that. We don't want a repeat of WWTC. :)|
|Feb-25-12|| ||wordfunph: wowww 3 draws!
happy Sunday to all..
