Rejoice, gamblers, for the betting Gods have smiled upon us all this day. In your player sheets you will find 500 points more than you thought you had
. A second, or in @zoom
's case a 5th, chance for those who lost it all, and a nice little bump for everyone else.
The powers that be have smiled upon one of us in particular. He is @Garja
, and he thought us all fools for betting on Marco1698. When swesweMAGIC, with a quick 2-0 sweep, showed Marco that the legend of AoE3 yet lives, Garja sat in his chair and an evil smile escaped him. As the last of Marco1698's musketeers bit the dust, Garja could see one of his closest rivals @musketeer925
tumble down the standings while he himself was showered with points. 9320, to be exact. He now finds himself with 23009 points, having come back from the brink of death only a few rounds ago when Flontier 2-1 OPTIMUS__PRIME. It's always nice when you have so many points that the betting limit per match starts to feel restricting. Grats to Garja!
Lurking in second and third place are @bwinner1
. These two have shown very solid judgment throughout this event, boasting consistency scores of 92% and 90% respectively. This is very high, and shows that they are betting accurately. However, Garja, having won only 64% of his bets, got the better of them because he won big when it counted.
bwinner1 and gh0st have a 7000 point gap to overcome. Of course, this is betting, and Garja is anything but safe on his throne. I'm sure this isn't news to any of you, but anything can happen. As we saw this round, which featured some nailbiting betting matches, a single game can be the difference between someone winning 10000 points or losing 10000.
has broken every consistency record ever. He won points in 12 out of 12 matches with his "guaranteed to win" strategy, though he is now 19000 points away from first place so he might have to abandon consistency and start gambling.Records after the round of 64
