Hey. I set this up mostly just because Mas disabled PMs, so effectively like a PM. Use it or not - really just so it's available. I also set one up with Sam, Adam, and Kevin (and Nat). I have no clue what's going on with the other board/everyone kind of went quiet after whatever it is Pete did, so this individual thing is kind of an effort to bring the board back without necessarily including or excluding Pete. Very Happy

Hey Tom I was thinking the same thing Smile I think Adam was worry Pete and Than were targeting him last round. I'm not sure how we should move forward with this. you got any idea?

I really don't know. It's apparent Pete was vying for the criminals to win - which in itself would be fine if that were part of a plan (we got Jess out of the game, so no harm done). I just don't know what actually happened, so I don't want to alienate Pete, but I was wary of including him in the group discussion (but also didn't want it clear I was excluding him).

Regardless, this challenge will have 1 winner and 1 loser, so it won't be (or shouldn't be) a voting pool, so anything that happened in the last challenge won't repeat. I'm thinking wait until the challenge is over, then bring the board back when nothing can really be done and see what he says/what gets around (still having another match to work around any obstacles that may present themselves - ie: not finding out just in time for the Death Match).

btw (sorry, I've been rushing around the past couple days my stops here have just been a distracted few minutes), my clue: H2 will finish before H7 but after H8

I think horse 8 seems like the most certain bet. 2 and 4 are likely in the top 3 (if 8 is, which I'm 90% sure of, at least), but which is top 2?

I'm thinking 4 is the other, and it looks like everyone else is, too - the odds are poor on both 8 and 4. Very Happy But I have no clue. 8 has poor odds, and will continue to have poor odds, but it's probably the most sure bet. Good idea to watch what other people bet, which may help fill in some missing pieces.

No, they're not posted. But the more bets on a horse, the smaller the payout. So, theoretically, someone could win the challenge if they bet 10 chips on the horse and everyone else only bets 1 chip on that horse, then put the rest of their chips on losing horses - they'd end up winning more chips than if everyone else put 19 chips on one horse and 1 on the other (but all chips on a winning horse, vs the person with only 10 chips on a winning horse and 10 wasted).

That sounds more confusing than it is. Here: http://horseplayusa.com/odds-payout-chart-2/

Gotta ask... are you betting more on H4 to worsen the odds for Pete winning? (I'm probably gonna be doing the same, mind - just wanted to wait until the last minute)

yeah i was thinking about that, Tom but i'm just really splitting my chips down the middle between 4 and 8. Not sure what's a good strategy for this match and I only have two chips left but let me know if I can help you achieve any particular goal you desire Smile

No real goal. Right now, it looks like the people who might potentially win: Pete, Nat, Kevin, and me. Kathy will likely lose, regardless (which I'm fine with, as I've never talked to her). Kevin stands a small chance of winning. I'm rooting for me (obviously), Kevin, or Nat. No one can catch up with Pete's bets on H4 (he'll win if it wins with the better odds); no one can catch up with mine on H8 (I'll win if H4 comes in 1st or 2nd but H8 has the better odds). Nat will likely win if he keeps betting on H2 and it's 2nd (Kevin might, if he throws the rest of his chips in and the odds aren't dramatically screwed up/Nat keeps splitting his bets).

Either way, for those reasons, I'm not betting on H2 (it has better odds for them to win, and there's no chance of me winning with it unless I put all of my remaining chips on it and Kevin/Nat don't place another chip on it - but then, Pete has better odds if H4 wins). I have no desire to target Pete at this point, but Kathy is going to have to challenge someone, and ideally she'd challenge Than (I'm not personally targeting either, but they're the logical choices to get out before the game becomes a mess), but there's no reason to keep Pete off the table at this point.

Agreed, Tom.  Also according to Kevin's hint, the top 2 horses have higher numbers than the horse that finished third, that's why I believe 8 and 4 are the winners and not 2.  I will throw my last two last chips on H4 but not sure what the others will do.  It's gonna be close.

If that was Kevin's hint then why would he bet on H2? At least he has more than enough chips on H4 and H8 to cover himself.

I'm not sure. But he told me that hint, that's why i've been spreading it evenly with H4 and H8 but I guess we'll find out soon enough Smile

Yep. Sorry for the delay, just got home a bit ago. Accepted. I requested another touch, too (Mas said twice per round).

This entire match just makes us all sound creepy.

We should all use that line irl. "Are you a human or a zombie? If you're human, can I touch you? Will you touch me back?"

Ha! Yeah, I'm sure this is going to end up with everyone being a zombie, but whatever - may as well try.

Alright. I touched Kevin, but it appears to be after he took his cure (he said "you said to post it in our confessional" or something, and seemed shocked he was a zombie). So I should be safe. Sent a request for you.

I'm trying to off myself so I don't risk being the human with the lowest point total. I'll put in a request to touch you, and you're welcome to touch me back.
