|Mar-13-20|| ||moronovich: Less than 4 days to the Candidates....|
|Mar-19-20|| ||morfishine: Can we get some pick threes or Daily Doubles? Otherwise, there's no way I can catch up lol|
but I do have 300 CB riding on Alekseenko that pays 37,000
Wouldn't that be a hoot if he wins
|Mar-19-20|| ||moronovich: Yes,a DD and/or Pick 3 would be much apreciated.|
|Mar-19-20|| ||morfishine: <Bookie> Thanks for the Pick 4!|
|Mar-20-20|| ||truepacifism: Pick 4 looks exciting, someone or some people could win big.|
|Mar-20-20|| ||Chnebelgrind: yippee! Pick4!|
|Mar-21-20|| ||Annie K.: These larger bets can only be offered when there's enough time for a bet to pick up a good pool, so look for them during rest days. :)|
|Mar-21-20|| ||morfishine: Thanks <Annie K> much appreciated!|
|Mar-21-20|| ||sydbarrett: If anyone is volunteering to keep this game from discontinuing, you are awesome in my book. I know it's a niche game with a very specific and small base, but I will miss not seeing it around.|
|Mar-22-20|| ||Diademas: Looking forward to another "pick 4".
I need a Hail Mary play to make an impact on the leaderboard.
|Mar-23-20|| ||morfishine: <Diademas> Me too!|
|Mar-25-20|| ||varishnakov: I hope chessbookie doesn't shut down. It gives me an reason to be invested in the tournaments. :-(|
|Mar-26-20|| ||moronovich: the candidates is postponed|
|Mar-26-20|| ||wordfunph: bookie master, i owe loanshark 4,500.
could you please freeze the exorbitant interest?
|Mar-26-20|| ||mike1: Well.... looks like that's all folks.
Congrats to Syd Barrett to be in front at the right time !
Hope we will be back sometimes down the track. Stay save and sound
|Mar-27-20|| ||morfishine: Dear <bookie> I understand refunding round 8, but the winners picks should remain standing|
Please review, thank you, best morf
|Mar-27-20|| ||Annie K.: No, because we are not going to stretch the Championship Leg until September, or whenever they get around to resuming it, the halfway leaders are not "winners", and bets can't be transferred from one leg to another. So it gets cancelled and refunded. |
The Championship Leg is now over. The logs have been checked, and the top 10 are clean. Congratulations to new Bookie Champion <sydbarrett> and the other 9 top finishers!
The leg will be officially wrapped up soon, and then we will open a training session "leg" for <jingohanson> who volunteered to run the Bookie, although the way things are looking, there isn't going to be anything worth covering anytime soon (and no, we are not covering TCEC events, although we may use them for the training leg).
But this is a good time to train a Bookie, or even several Bookies - so if anybody else wants to join up for training, please let me know. :)
|Mar-27-20|| ||Diademas: All Hail <sydbarrett> and the ChessBookie! |
I kind of knew it would be cancelled when the only bet I had left started looking promising.
<SETTLEMENT DATE: Apr-03-20
PROJECTED PAYOUT: 440 ( )
|Mar-27-20|| ||Count Wedgemore: Congratulations to the great <sydbarrett>!|
|Mar-27-20|| ||moronovich: Congrats <sydbarrett> !|
Well done !
I know you have been trying for a long time,so I could imagine it must be of great satisfaction.
|Mar-27-20|| ||sydbarrett: I was honestly hoping the leg would play out so I could win properly. My tournament final winner bets would have only won 2000 on either MVL or Nepo, and it was plausible to me that someone else would have won more on either leading player, meaning I would have possibly needed to extend my lead further to secure first place. My main "big jackpot" bet was someone else. I'll gladly take the crown for this year, but I'll be more satisfied when I duke it out and earn it outright next time.|
The best news is that this game will continue on. Let's play till we are old or too senile to play. Cheers and a round for all.
|Mar-27-20|| ||sydbarrett: lol @ <<trying for a long time>>, I was only trying for a few years. I'm still mostly a rookie. Next year is when it really counts. :))|
|Mar-27-20|| ||Annie K.: I had 500 on Nepo myself... Plus other tickets, but if Nepo won, that would have been about 3000 in profits all in all. |
Which reminds me to repeat that any volunteer to run the Bookie will also be allowed to play. ;)
|Mar-27-20|| ||Count Wedgemore: I too was about to gain quite a bit on the Overall Winner bet. (Well, probably). I would have won app. 6,000 cbs if MVL had ended up the winner and around 4,000 if Nepo had won. So given these two guys were +2 after seven rounds I was very optimistic that I would win another chessbookie title, although I had a feeling that this tournament (which shouldn't have been played in the first place) would not run its course to the finish line.|
Next year, my friends. I WILL WIN---BRING IT ON
|Mar-28-20|| ||morfishine: Darn, I had 300 CB's on Alekseenko to win that would've paid 37,000 chessbucks|
That is not a typo
Congratulations <sydbarrett>! Long live Pink Floyd!
