Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

Pospisil-Simon match winner will be a void bet right?

Yes, according to the rules someone has to win match point for the match to count.

But had anyone made a bet only on the first set, that would be counted right?



Just if Isner had won a TB
Still a positive day though.

I haven't really thought of that situation. Wasn't my rule invention originally, I'd have gone with everything counting if a set is completed. But I suppose it must be as you suggest, if what you bet on has been completed then it counts. Unless someone thinks this is unfair, if so, speak up. No result is affected by this rule yet.

Wait a sec, the standard protocol is that the match is counted if at least 1 set has been finished.

I know.

We can put it to a vote. Won't be retroactive, but if everyone with an opinion can indicate whether they want "one-setters" to count or not, then we'll follow the majority for tomorrow's matches onwards

I think we should continue with the same rules as those decided upon in the Montreal trial. No doubles bets, all bets must be made before start of days play, retirement voids a match winner bet, full amount to be bet in the time span(up to a maximum of 100).

Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

Yeah, match not ending via match point = void bets. Not just because I've been getting voids across the board.

Bit early for this, but TILT

$54 Goffin over Pospisil @2.25 (Bet365)
$10 Gasquet over Isner @2.08 (Pinnacle Sports)
