Given the success of last tournaments betting event and because why the hell not, Ive decided to host a new betting event to go with the smackdowns :) As most of you know, there are weekly showmatches on saturday between top players (Best of 7) hosted by Zutazuta and its always a fun watch. How about we raise the stakes?

Of course the points are imaginary, there is no real money involved its all just for fun. Unlike for the tournament, there wont be a prize this time.
I plan to continue until the next tournament, there will be no point resets so be careful you dont bet too much ')

You can bet on the following match:

Umeu vs _H2O

Read the news post here

How it works
Everyone starts with 1000 points. You can bet all of your points each round, but of course considering how many games are coming up it would be wise to save some.

You dont have to sign up anywhere. You can just place your bet in this thread and it will be counted. You can edit your bets but only before the match of course.

Its a best of 7, so there are 10 possible results you can bet on:
Player a winning
Player b winning
Player a winning 4-0
Player b winning 4-0
Player a winning 4-1
Player b winning 4-1
Player a winning 4-2
Player b winning 4-2
Player a winning 4-3
Player b winning 4-3

The system works in such a way that betting on results that very few others bet on gets you a higher rate of payout if that result should happen, but of course disagreeing with other betters generally means you are betting on an unlikely result. This way it evens out, and of course the best way to win is to bet according to how you think the games will go, though strategically throwing some points on a result that is not too unlikely but people havent been betting on can be quite rewarding.

Betting on a player winning gets you less bang for your buck as well because it is lower risk. For max profits bet on the specific results.

Rules
Most of the rules from the tournament event are gone because there is no cash prize this time. The only rule is that you cannot edit your bets after the match started.
Note that it is allowed to donate to anyone with under 1000 points.

Place your bets and best of luck, my fellow gamblers!
