  • #3114: Spain are out! 18-06-14 at 20:57

    Spain just lost to Chile. They cannot qualify now. Should be settled NO.

    You are absolutely incorrect. Spain can still qualify.

    #3119: Anonymous 18-06-14 at 21:32


    You are wrong. Spain cannot qualify.

    Netherlands and Chile have both won 2 games, and now both have 6 points in the group.

    Spain (currently 0 points) can get a maximum of 3 points by winning their next game.

    This bet should be settled No.

    #3120: Anonymous 18-06-14 at 21:38

    No. Spain can still qualify if Chile or Netherlands is disqualified for any reason. Unlikely, but possible.

    #3121: Anonymous 18-06-14 at 23:09

    Spain was eliminated the moment the game ended, both Chile and Netherlands have clinched.

    Should be closed, if not resolved.

    This and most of the other "advance from the group stage" statements are pointless if betting is allowed after teams are either eliminated from or clinch a spot in the next round.

    #3129: Anonymous 19-06-14 at 08:26

    I created these bets. Should have set them to close the day of the second match. Sorry…

    Is your math taught by your gym teacher?

    #3142: Anonymous 20-06-14 at 01:58

    All bets after post #3114 should get refunded with the usual 1% fee.

    This is typically how bitbet operates for bets that are decided before they are closed.

    #3143: Anonymous 20-06-14 at 02:01

    and they are usually quite punctual, as long as they don’t have 60 microbets to tend to.

    #3144: Anonymous 20-06-14 at 02:08

    Not sure if the late monkeys are new to bitbet, but after the bet resolves, the mods take the usual 1% fee from any bet and refund the rest.

    If you’re not careful, and the bet is closed while your btc are in transit (before the bet registers) you lose ALL of those btc.

    Risking 2 to win .0x not quite worth it.

    Thanks to #3114 for providing a time of resolution.

    I’m the #3115 derp who does bad math (thought they could longshot point differential their way in).

    But #3114 is correct. The bet should be resolved then.

    #3151: Anonymous 20-06-14 at 05:56

    The bet is not resolved. Spain can technically still qualify if Netherlands or Chile is disqualified from the World Cup for some reason.

    Adding the word "technically" in front of something doesn’t make it true.

    #3157: Anonymous 20-06-14 at 17:58

    these bets should have closed before the first round of group match.

    #3160: Anonymous 20-06-14 at 19:46

    #3157 it’s fine that the bets are open into group play. Time weight rewards those who bet earlier. Some have been resolved though, and people have tried betting after a resolution has been decided.

    I’d wager they will have their bets refunded less 1% per FAQ

    There’s been quite a few wagers after the outcome is known on these cup bets.

    IMO, they should’ve been closed before any second match begun, that’d allow time for people to bet with some information from game 1 but still not know the outcome.

    #3165: Anonymous 21-06-14 at 18:28

    #3164 The outcome is really not know for certain. i.e. spain is not eliminated until Netherlands and Chile advance. there is still possibility of teams getting disqualified — even though it is extremely unlikely

    #3164, Moreover, you need to read this discussion:


    #3169: Anonymous 22-06-14 at 05:14

    The outcome IS known for certain.

    Saying it is not is the equivalent of betting on an individual game only to have it retroactively revoked.

    If you bet that Argentina would win today, and they do, you don’t need to wait until the end of group play to see if they’re disqualified, do you?

    Likewise, once teams are MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED, as in Spain’s case, there is NO QUESTION as to the result. It’s resolved the moment they are mathematically eliminated.

    re: log.bitcoin-assets

    The closing time is irrelevant to the time a bet is resolved, or in bitbet’s words, "satisfied"


    Some bets are closed with no known resolution as of now, while some remain open with a known resolution.

    The fact is, if the outcome of a bet is known (e.g. mathematically eliminated/guaranteed) all bets following are subject to refund less 1% fee.

    #3171: Anonymous 22-06-14 at 05:45

    #3169, none of the bets are for "Argentina to win today". They’re for qualifying. That happens when it happens, not when you think it will definitely happen.

    #3170 pretty much has it.

    #3174: Anonymous 22-06-14 at 18:39

    It has nothing to do with what someone thinks will happen, it has everything to do when it becomes a mathematical certainty that it will, or in Spain’s case, will not.

    Post #3114 pointed out correctly that they were mathematically eliminated, that is, the conditions of the wager were satisfied.

    #3175: Anonymous 22-06-14 at 21:08

    But it is still not guaranteed that Spain is out. Mathematically certainty means it has to be absolute. And it is not absolute until they are actually eliminated.
