Chessgames Bookie
Member since Feb-10-06 · Last seen Mar-10-21
I am the administrator for the ChessBookie Game. More information about this game can be found at ChessBookie Game Help Page. Also, just for fun, you can learn general gambling lingo at the ChessBookie Game Glossary.

If you have any questions or suggestions, post them on the Chessgames Bookie forum, below.

<DISCLAIMER> The ChessBookie game is for entertainment only. It is a gambling simulation, but not really gambling. It doesn't cost any money to play, and you don't receive any money if you win. Void where prohibited. Full Member

Chessgames Bookie: Sargon, Could we get an adminstrator to close out the Fall Leg of the Chessbookie? Prizes and reset all to $1000, or more if we're not going to get a mid-leg payday? Thanks, jingo Gens una sumus!

  Messiah: I am not <EXTREMELY> surprised that there is no betting on the TATA 2021, so it does not hurt.

(that much)

  juan31: Tata Steel ???

  Diademas: Let's apply the same strategy as on the Member Support Forum chessforum (kibitz #34905)






Jan-17-21  morfishine: Isn't this supposed to be the championship leg?
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Shure,it should be, <morf> .
Feb-07-21  mike1: is our beloved game dead?
Feb-11-21  morfishine: <mike1> Yes, budgetary constraints forced them to choose between axing the bookie game or the worn-out GOTD

They made the wrong decision and axed the bookie game thus leaving the pathetic GOTD in place

  Check It Out: Some reddit flim-flammery has caused a run on <chessbucks>, a digital form of currency used in the chessbookie game, causing the price of chessbucks so soar. <CG> had to put a halt to all chessbucks purchases, causing an uproar in the markets. As a result the value of chessbucks has crashed and nobody wants to touch the stuff. The instability put all the chessbookies out of business,, unfortunately.. Now's the time to buy! Buy, I say, BUY!

  wordfunph: it has been a long time, miss u all guys!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: I'm not sure of the future of the ChessBookie game, but it would have been nice for if this were the final leg ever, that we can conclude it with a Championship Leg.

It is still possible, but Tata Steel is long gone.

Feb-21-21  mike1: well, there is always hope!
and so I liked to hope to see you all again
for another leg of ups and downs in the world
of online chess bets!
till then, stay safe, stay calm and keep on playing! Cheers and thanks again Michael

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: The new leg ostensibly started on June 6, but there hasn't been anything to bet on yet?
Aug-08-21  mike1: I refuse to pay any type of subscription if this game is not coming back; full stop!

  technical draw: The Bookie game was one of my favorite pastimes. Bring back gambling!
Oct-08-21  wallytherhino: Dear Chessgames Management,

Part I:

Please restart this game. I always loved chess as a kid, even though I am at best rated 1500. Chessbookie game entertained me through high school, college, the armed forces, and at every step of life after. The community is what made the game amazing. This game kept me interested and led me into other areas of chess mostly virtual, and some IRL chess.

Part II:

The game does not require a monetary prize. My favorite prize was when I won the one-year free membership. That membership allowed me access to opening book research, exclusive events, and a larger community within the site.

Part III:

For the sake of newer chess players please bring the game back.

  technical draw: I agree with <wallytherhino>. He was always a good competitor and the one to beat. (plus he was the only one with a real gambler name) So, again, find a good bookie and restart the game!
