Chessgames Bookie: Varishnakov is correct. Sorry about that. Same goes for the 0.5 - 2.5 result. In this case weŽll pay based on the loser score. Yes, 0 - 4 cannot happen, but we will pay 0 - 4 line for a 0 - 2.5 result.

Chessgames Bookie: Hi moronovich, I'm jingohanson, the new Bookie. The Pick two is for day four of the event, with the games I posted. Sorry about the confusion. I should have put (Day 4) in the description. Thanks for welcoming me. Your suggestions are welcome. Ciao, jingohanson

  morfishine: Hurry up payday, the interest rate from the loanshark is burying me


Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: What about a Pick 3 or DD for the next round(s) ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Yes Dear <moronovich>, I agree whole heartedly, we need more pick 3 and Pick two bets to enhance the betting and competition
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: Any reason why the daily double round 9 closing time seems to be 15 hours later than that of the individual round 9 bets? I'm not even sure it closes before the games start.
Premium Chessgames Member
  mike1: second BEATGIANT post above
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: Thanks, chessbookie, for fixing that.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Whats the vig rate from the Loanshark?
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: <morfishine>
It's in the help page.

<1 chessbuck of interest daily for each 100 chessbucks you have on loan.>

So if you owe 199cb or less, it's 1cb per day; 200-299cb costs 2cb per day etc.

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Thanks <beatgiant>!
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Maybe we can get some Aeroflot bets going to cover us for the next 3 weeks when the candidates begin
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Could we get some odds on the winner of the Candidates ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Less than 4 days to the Candidates....
Premium Chessgames Member
  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

Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Yes,a DD and/or Pick 3 would be much apreciated.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <Bookie> Thanks for the Pick 4!
Mar-20-20  truepacifism: Pick 4 looks exciting, someone or some people could win big.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chnebelgrind: yippee! Pick4!
Premium Chessgames Member
  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. :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Thanks <Annie K> much appreciated!

  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Diademas: Looking forward to another "pick 4".
I need a Hail Mary play to make an impact on the leaderboard.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <Diademas> Me too!
