Machimo didn't bet yesterday and is left with $137,75
You made a mistake. Chardy retired against Lopez so that bet should be void, right?

Entirely correct. Force of habit from vBookie, I guess.

You're on $158,13 then. That's still in the lead, and quite an impressive effort after two days

I think this is the first time I caught you with a mistake instead of the other way around

Yeah, it's going well, but looking at today's matches I'm not sure. No easy upsets any more.

Just to confirm, are there any exceptions to this rule?

No, it was meant as a failsafe to get ruined players a second chance. Freak3yman84 will thus be on $25 after today and have a very slim chance of catching up. But everyone will get the same amount.

Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

It's still in trial, so I'll give my feedback on the $25 rule, it's bad imo because it only encourages an all-in gamble like Pratik just did. If you're out, you should be out. Better luck next time.

After considering, I think I agree with this view. Better to encourage some restraint. I'll amend the rules for the next tournament, unless someone argues convincingly for keeping the $25 addition.

Certainly. No retroactive rule changes.

Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

I too don't like the $25 rule. Nobody should be the given extra money.

That said, I don't think it makes much of a difference. It doesn't encourage wild bets any more than the one-week betting format already does. If the rule wasn't there, I would possibly have put $20 lesser than what I did, thus ensuring that I have a small amount to "play with" for the next day. It wouldn't make much of a difference on the number of aggressive bets.

Yeah, you're never going to stop it with fake money. It's like the play money tables in poker.
