No. If the Sabres win, that will be your balance.  If the Habs win, you will have 2200.

Correct. You don't have to pay your bookie until after the game is over. So you'd still have your whole 2k.

Hank ... shall we all post "where we think we stand" before each bet? In other words, are we keeping track ourselves, or are you keeping track? I want it easy for you, of course.

I believe I'm at $2,200, having wagered two units on Montreal. I'll restate my self calculated standing before each bet to give you, and others, the ability to check my math as we move forward.

Swamp and ubkev. ... thank you. Seems I had the math correct, but my language and timing was improved by your comments. My post stopped at "before the result". I'd have been clearer if I'd described what I believed the results would do.

You net 1 unit or $100. If you lose you are down 175
If you bet the Sabres and win 1 unit or $100 gets youn$155.

Well if he's taking Calgary sight unseen, I'll put 1 unit on the Sabres in their 2nd Alberta game this week. (I'll try to post what that bet actually becomes to make it easier on you, but not sure if I'll be on the site between the line getting posted & the faceoff.)

Glad I sat that one out.  My hunch was to be McDavid..  Sitting at 2100..

 

Hank..  You are on life support after two games...
