Betting on T36 (in Off-topic)
I thought that I might as well get into the swing of things and get involved in T36 even though I'm not going to be a participant.
In this vein, I'd like to back Team Awesome (if only because it's got Hakai!) for 50k up to five times, and am looking for five people who are willing to back Team Blender for 50k.
Feel free to join in the betting fun (and go ahead and hijack the thread for your own bets to do with T36), and let's egg on our teams!

I'll take all 5 bets for 50k apiece :)

Bets don't go in Contests because with contests you aren't supposed to make a profit :) (moved to off-topic)
('-'), no deal. You can take one of the bets. :)
BTW, first preference goes to those who are NOT participating in the tourney.

February 7 2009 3:36 PM EST
and Hakai and I are betting 100k, me for Team Blender
GO. GO. Team Blender!!
Bump in the interest of monetary gain! :D
Is no one else willing to put their money where their Blender is?

I'm willing, but watching for non-tourney players to bet, and besides that we're on the same betting side >.>

I'll take a bet on team Blender...I'd put as much as i could on them but im under the impression i can only bet 50K? So, to start, 50K on Blender :)
February 8 2009 2:31 PM EST
I'll go 50k on Blender :)
so what are the understanding bets?
Currently, I have 50k against the following players:
If no one else chimes in, I will have 50k against the following tournament participants:
GO BLENDER ill do 500k that we win!!!
Tal, I am interested in taking that bet if you are serious and do not have any other offers.
Go, go, go, Team Awesome!

This doesn't mean anything but I made a quick calculation.
Team Blender: 22
Team Awesome: 17
alright hakai your on
wanna make a PR or something should we just use this thread?
February 9 2009 3:15 PM EST
anyone want to take a 5 million bet that Team Blender wins?
5 mil is a hefty bet there, SK. Good luck finding someone to back that.
And Tal, this thread is fine. I mean, I don't really think you'll back out. Are there any terms on the bet? Like time constrictions for which it must be paid? Upon completion of the tournament or...?
just whenever im having fun just if you win ill send immediately so i don't forget. but i believe most women are capable of remembering everything

Still waiting for the winner to be announced ...

It's expected to be Team Blender, given the final few minutes of the tourney.

Thanks, this tourney was fun. Although if I hadn't scraped my first 3 minion team my score would have been much, much higher. Since I eventually went back to a 3 minion team again....

I was a little disappointed at the lack of participation from the Blender community in cheering on the two teams or the willingness to place even a couple of small bets. However, maybe a couple more tourneys like this will promote some positive community spirit, and I'll be there cheering from the sidelines.
Well done to both teams!
Hehehe, I learned a lot and had a blast.
