Pogchamps 3 was a chess tournament involving a lot of the most popular Twitch streamers playing chess for their charities. I bet on a few PogChamps 3 matches on Twitch. Let’s take a look at the betting and making smart bets.
Rules of gambling:
- never bet more than you can lose (Twitch doesn’t let you take out loans, so I am good on this)
- never bet more than you can lose (psychologically)
Ludwig vs. Logic
I bet 7.5k on Logic. I ended up losing when Logic lost in tiebreak.
Pokimane vs. Michelle Khare
Feb 28 - Finals
Neeko vs. Michelle Khare
Going into this game I expected Neeko to be the favourite. She was higher rated and had a harder side of the bracket (beating Tubbo and Rubius). (Michelle had to beat Mr.Beast and Pokimane)
|Neeko’s style of play is far from perfect, but she excelled in the PogChamps format (best of 3, 10||5 and 5||0 in tiebreaker). I describe her play like playing Poker. She will make blunders but she moves with such speed and tempo that it unsettles lower-elo opponents. She beat Tubbo in the tiebreaker by flagging.|
I bet 5k on Neeko (in retrospect I should have bet more).
Rainn Wilson vs. Sardoche
