    The Top-2 engines are Stockfish and Houdini! Congratulations to players with winning bets. See below for winnings.

    The Super-Final start tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. Bets on the Super-Final must be placed by 7:00 a.m.!!

    Remember in addition to naming the final winner, you should indicate how many games your engine will win as White. For a cost of 1 biscuit, you can also bet that your engine will win at least one game as Black.

    Stockfish superfinal winner (30 biscuits), also winner of one or more games as Black (15 biscuits).

    @raisingsun and @mcris: When you bet on the Super-Final you should also say how many games your engine will win as White. If you get that right the payoff is 3-1 (instead of 2-1).

    (The bet is based on the 20 game tournament, and does not include extra games if needed to break a tie).

  • #67

    If it's not too late I would like to go all in on Stockfish as the final winner. No further bets.

  • #69

    @mcris, I got your bet as Stockfish winning, with winning 9 games won as White.

    @Eeyores_Shack, please let me know how many games Stockfish will win as White. That's part of the bet (has a higher payoff than just naming the winner).

    @friedmelon, I will change your bet to Stockfish winning overall, with winning 2 games as White. (That means there will be a lot of draws in the results).


    I have it now as 7:15 Pacific Time, so betting is closed, except for Eeyores_Shack who can declare games won as White (must be in by 9:00 Pacific Time).happy.png

    Here's the final results for player's balances:

    Hi-lites:

    First, my previous chart for @friedmelon's balance was wrong. friedmelon bet 5 on SF, and 3 on Shredder, not using 2 biscuits (the only player to not bet all 10 of his biscuits). So his winnings after the qualifying rounds is 5x3 + 2 = 17. He placed two bets on the Super-Final costing 2 biscuits, so his balance was 15 biscuits.

    After the Super-Final, friedmelon bet correctly on the Winner, and games won as White, and that winner would win at least one game as Black, which has a 6-1 payoff! Friedmelon's biscuits increases from 15 to 90!!!

    @Eeyores_Shack bet "all-in" correctly on Super-Final, for a final balance of 88 biscuits.

    @mcris bet 30 on SF, and bet correctly on 1+ games won as Black for a final balance of 88 biscuits.

    @raisingsun bet "all-in" correctly on Super-Final for a final balance of 69 biscuits.

    Eight other gamblers had winning bets on one engine in the qualifying rounds and increased the stash of biscuits.

    Congratulations to friedmelon, Eeyores_Shack, mcris, and raisingsun for thier big wins!happy.png
