Open to any challenger. Money escrowed in advance with the Wiz.



I'm willing to make escrow arrangements with the Wizard.

Do you have any conditions not specified earlier?

I have just one...the exercise and settlement must be conducted with both participants (that's me & you) in attendance, in person.

Any witness is acceptable to me.

Your extra stipulation is not acceptable to me. I stipulate to do it witnessed over Zoom or similar video conference, with the Wizard conducting the roll under video camera.

If thatís acceptable to you, advise if you want to do one bet or numerous bets, so appropriate amounts can be escrowed.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I would be remiss in my duties as a bothersome nitpicker for not highlighting that the originally offered odds seemed to be 8:1, but they now seem to have been adjusted to 7:1.

Best of luck.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I don't consider video conferencing a legitimate format for such an exercise, it should take place in person.

You should reconsider, perhaps we could renegotiate the odds?

Here is your chance to prove me wrong and make some money at the time same time.



Is this bet open to any takers, ala MDawg's challenge, or is it by invitation only?

I'm willing to give it a shot...who wouldn't take a hall-of-fame opportunity like this?

Thank you but no. Your stipulation is not acceptable to me. Appreciate your renewed efforts to try to meet up with me in person though.

ETA: I hope you and the Wizard work out agreeable terms.

If I were to stake another member, would you agree to an in-person event?

I'll offer Alan's side to anyone who wants it.

I suggest that until we establish some trust, bets be settled after each shake, as long as there is it isn't a push (no twos). An alternative to that is we both escrow money with a mutually agreeable source.

I also pretty much insist this be done in person.

Also, lest loaded dice be an issue, the party NOT supplying the dice get to choose the particular face bet on. In other words, it doesn't have to be twos. It just has be declared before the shake.
