I am so confused that I am out. Too many rules for my feeble mind to follow.


I will still compete but I agree, the black points are very confusing.

Red = Weekly matches - must bet before the match starts - can bet multiple matches together to get more points - cannot bet on yourself

 

Black = special coupons - must bet before match starts - can bet on yourself

 

At least that is how I understand things :)  Apologies to Optician if I wrote something incorrectly.

Management board do now allow you to back yourself after a change of heart. They also apologise for the confusing rules.

Bet on Sohal is accepted.

The other bets are not accepted because these players have all played a match since the coupon was published.

Prices will all be updated tomorrow!

Yes, as soon as the new prices are published you can back a player at that price (until they next play a game).

 

I'll consider this an advance bet.

I feel sorry for the person who thought up this idea and has to keep track of the odds. So red coupons can be continuously bet on each round? I guess the good thing is that all 64 players are not betting.
