** FMS Awards Betting 2010 **


SCIAG

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen, that time has come around again. It is time for you all to try and make money on this ridiculously hard field.

You each are in possession of £10,000 FMS to bet on the outcome of the awards. The winner is the person who makes the most money- there is no point keeping cash back, you should spend it all.

Please calculate your potential winnings using this website. Please stick to accumulators and singles.

In event of a tied award, the favourite (according to the odds) will be counted as "losing" for betting purposes. The dark horse will have "won". In the unlikely event of a three-way tie, the second placed option (in terms of odds) will return your stake and not void accumulators, but don't worry about that.

Interpreting the Odds:

Odds will be expressed in the form of a fraction. 5/1 is 5, 1/5 is 0.2. If x is your stake and N is the odds, then your return is xN+x. If you like, you can simply ignore the odds and just bet on who you think will win and plug that into the betting calculator :cough: Copper :cough: ;)

This year, there is actually a prize for the winner, rather than just kudos, so choose wisely, and good luck.

Stickied for ease of access. There's an accumulator on me winning more than anyone else when I'm only up for three? Wow. What an open field!

You're up for four awards. It's a combination of so many awards being tight, so many users being nominated, and me wanting to suck people into an apparently easy bet :p

Thanks for sticking.

Obviously, 'Mathematician of the Year' is not one of them :(

You're welcome for sticking.

And, of course, thank you to those who nominated me. I do appreciate it :)

I'm going to blow the lot on Gavrenwick winning 5 or more awards.

That's £10000FMS @7-1 Total returned: £80000FMS.

You win- I'm the only other one with money left after my "value accumulator" came off.

You will receive your tomorrow evening, or the day after at the latest- I suggest you PM me now so I don't forget when I next log in.
