And I'd have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for those meddling anti-jinxers.

Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

Low activity today...ofc, it's not obligatory to bet each day.

Sham might yet claim the lead through an inactive day. It rests on Nadal.

You had the right idea, but two sets didn't cut it

Time to go hard or go home (Being at home already is a minor inconvenience)

$169 Nadal vs. Isner, under 2.5 sets @1.45 (Unibet)

I could have blocked you, you know. Seeing as it's between the two of us. I could have bet as much on the same thing and guaranteed I'd end up with more. Didn't feel it was sporting, though. Now you'll win if your bet is successful, and deservedly so.

Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

Yeah, I was expecting you to bet a lot more, doing it this way makes the bet redundant. Alls fair in love and war man, wouldn't have been unsporting at all.

Makes me think, if we continue this game past today, the Final day of each tournament will be a game of cat and mouse

Re: THE Game - still in trial - now Cincinnatti

More or less redundant, as you say. I'm just trying to optimalize my total and I felt quite unsure about today's match when you factor in the odds. If we'd have been into official territory we'd probably had more contenders making it impossible to secure 1st place. Imagine if there were two with your total, not one, and the other bet on an Isner win. Couldn't then have blocked you both.
