vBetting Pick 'em 2013 AO
« on: January 23, 2012, 04:36:22 PM »
Here are the Rules of Play

1. everyone begins each round with $100 (see **, and ***)

2. you must bet on each match listed

3. you must bet all $100

4. Minimum bet is $5 per match. You may make a maximum of three $5 bets. Your remaining bets must be between $10 and $25, the maximum bet amount. (see *, **, and ***)
Note: You can make $5.50, $6.00, etc.. bets, too. You're just limited to 3 bets under $10.

We use real odds, so if you bet $5 on a guy who's odds are 3.0, you win $15.

You can join at any point. If you miss 1R, you can join in 2R. If you play 1R but miss 2R, you can rejoin in 3R. etc..



Too Busy? Join and leave, then return at any time!
Because the game is based on net winnings rather than total wins, it really doesn't hurt to skip a round or two per tournament or a few tournaments over the course of the year.


*For 6 to 4 matches, the limits will go up to $15 min and $35 max.

**For 3 to 2 matches, the amount available to bet drops to $50 and the limits change to $10 min and $25 max.

***For 1 match, the amount available to bet is $30.


Reading odds

2.5 = 5/2 = 2.5-1 = 2.5 to 1, and between  1.5  and 2.4, the player with 1.5 odds is the betting favorite

Federer (1.5) - (2.4) Del Potro

I sent out feelers to the old gang and new gang, including Freaky and Enrique. Don't really know who else might be interested. Not a problem since it's a late start. I'll try to get on top of it next time.

Oh shoot, I missed another match! Babs, wouldn't it make sense to have Wawa-Djoko and Ivanovic-Radwanska as the previous days' match since it technically is part of yesterday's schedule? And then everyone would start with $80?

I'm down, I don't really know how it works though.

Let's just see. Is there anyone keeping ranking or anything?

It's alright. It takes a minute to absorb. Freaky didn't follow the rules because you can use $5 up to three times but the remaining bets must be between $10 (min) and $25 (max).

Only 2 (Radwanska-Ivanovic and Djokovic-Wawrinka) of the 10 matches have been played. Go ahead and spread $100 across the remaining 8 matches.

Will fix when I get home. I thought it was above 5, less than 25 :)~

Notice, you don't have to make any $5 bets. You just can't bet less than $5 on any match and under $10 more than 3 times. I made three $5 bets but Enrique made two. It's all good. :thumbs-up:

For more clarity, I just added this note:
Note: You can make $5.50, $6.00, etc.. bets, too. You're just limited to 3 bets under $10.

Who's keeping track of the money balance, and do we start with $100 again next round?

By the way my name is Javier, but if you want to keep calling me Enrique that's fine as well  :whistle:

It's in my spreadsheet. Djokovic and Radwanska have earned me $17.50 thus far and I've lost $0. Note, had Radwanska lost, I would be -$4.50 (-$10 on Rad + $5.50 won on Djokovic because 5x1.1 = 5.50).

Yes, regardless of how we do in this round we all begin then next round with $100.
