    we obviously should not discuss games in progress ...

    but: Tournament 414

    after looking at the games and anything else we value;

    what odds do we give the participants?

    after a quick look i guess;

    tebb 0.22
    nichuyboom 0.3
    quirine 0.23
    mistsplicer 0.25

    i hope this is not against site rules - and will alert my own post - partly for fun, partly as a matter of process.

    Most important thing to learn about betting is why the bookies has five windows for taking bets and only one for paying out.

    My (virtual) money is on Tebb.

    Did you look at the games to come up with your odds?

    Otherwise I think the rating points should be a good indicator of strength.

    One could have some weighing if one looks up who was beaten by whom previously.

    But after all surprises happen. So I won't venture any bet.

    I'm throwing it all on nichuyboom. I'll bet a rec he wins the tourny. Anyone to bet against me gets a rec if nichuyboom doesn't win, and gives me a rec if he does. Who's interested?

    I put in five (5) recs and vote on David Tebb.

    I'll match your 5 on Quirine. Deal?

    Sure, that sounds like a good bet for me.

    Alright. No one's taken up mistsplicer though. Just for completeness, I think someone should bet on him.
