Spooky Ponzi Scheme - Professional Stuntmen Only
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Don't try this at home. (Wait until the last round of a tournament and you're out of the money. Your opponent will believe he understands why you're out of the money, but he'll lose his wits trying to remember the proper theory. It's a cup o' caffeine for you!)

Fredthebear assembled this collection of 110 games. Thank you, ISeth.
