Default Re: THE Game - In Trial

Assuming that the game will continue beyond the trial, since players play each other, won't the game require commitments?

Are in-play bets allowed too?

As it's your game invention you can have the honor of making the first bet I'll consider the game to have officially begun when you've made your first.

@Pratik, you can play whenever you want and I can just keep track of wins/losses As for in play bets, you can do them if you post it right away

@Markus, I'll wait until the whole FQR is known

- Each person can bet however much they want within the amount they have. They can also make any type of bet (match winner, tournament winner, number of sets, it's all good!)
Example of a bet: $10 on Pospisil to beat Isner @2.35
- Each time someone bets, they will make a new post
- The winners and losers of both matches will play each other again in another tourney

That should cover it

The draw:
Freak3yman84 vs. Litotes
Sham Kay vs. Mark Lenders
I have a question. How is the odds of the match relevant? I thought it is just the $ you bet that determines the your total money.

Alright, let's say I have $100 and bet $15 on a winner @1.6. If I won I would multiply 15 x 1.6 which is $24 and therefore I made $9

I understand, very smart You have to elaborate that part in the OP though.

If Djokovic plays some mug and the odds are 1 to 26, and you bet all your $100, and the mug beats Djokovic, you could make $2500

What is the rule for walkovers? (if you have made thought of that yet )

I don't think I have to say that, it's just how tennis betting works

Well, yes, that can happen. But if you lose then you have no money

Walkovers/retirements are void

Oh I really had no clue how tennis betting works. All I knew was the person with the lower number in the live scoreboard was the favorite to win.

Thanks. THE Game will have great success here at MTF
