I’ll play. But no promises to act rationally.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I will play.

I seem to remember that we never actually received payments from the Coop Game II. We agreed to let Wizard take the prize pool and work with Axel to increase the prize pool via whatever seemed to be a good opportunity. It was a free roll, so its hard to complain about not getting our payouts, but . . . let the contestants beware.

If you or anyone else didn't get your payments it had nothing to do with me. Your post seems to suggest I had something to do with something bad happening, when it was quite the opposite of that. I don't 100% recall all the details, but I'll take a shot at giving you the gist of what happened. Someone who recalls more or researches the details can help fill in the exact details.

Let's go back: At some point I believe someone suggested we gamble the winning on some long shot. I wasn't interested in some negative EV situation. I think I probably suggested putting it into the +EV 1/2 parlay cards. I don't know exactly how it went down but Romes was put in charge, he somehow missed one of the best 1/2 parlay weeks ever. I don't know what happen with the betting after that since I took the cash. I think it was a total loss of the funds.

Fast forward to the next round. I said I would be willing to invest the winnings into a +EV situation where I was 99% confident we would come out ahead. I used my own money to front the play and never asked for Mike or anyone to put up any money. I did win and I added profits to the bankroll. I got the extra money to those responsible for the payments.

I certainly did not intend to suggest that you. Axelwolf, did anything improper or were responsible in any way for blowing the winnings of the last Co-Op game.

I'm just saying that I never received any payout and my memory was hazy but I had never heard from Mike as to what happened to our payout. And I specifically said it was not a big deal because it was a free roll. I just think it would be nice if Mike (or other involved party) would communicate with us as to what happened to the several hundreds of dollars of Co-op Game II payouts that were originally intended for the participants.

I could be wrong but I thought that it went to pay the bill of the WoV spring fling meetup at Triple 7 at Main Street Station. I’m too lazy to look back and find out but that’s my memory.

Did I miss a memo? Did this game get started in a different thread? Or is it simply just forgotten somehow?
