99% chance to win this much or less

couldn't this be misinterpreted? seems to me it should progress back down till you get to 1% yet again

I'm not sure I see your point. Can you expand on it?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I must start serving my four-day suspension today …

Did I miss something? Why were you suspended?

But based on some of your recent hiking / climbing tweets, does a scheduled suspension while you’re basically off the grid anyway even count? 🤪

to me it suggests the player has a 99% chance to win big money and only a 1% chance to lose big money when actually they are similar in probability, not 99% versus 1%

The word "win" shouldn't be there.
