pedestrian: If pawns are allowed in ponds, the rules need to be clarified. For instance, there's nothing in the pond rules about people coordinating their moves and/or playing together as a team.

There is no need to do that. The general rules of the User Agreement clearly prohibit such conduct.

You can't sign up for any ponds. You say you can? OK, sign up for some and post the pond here so we can see.

I was accused many times and by many people. Always by inept people who don't know how ponds are played though. YOU have now accused me of cheating. I want you to provide more information. Where did I cheat?

tenuki: Nice story, and it even has a happy ending.
Too bad that it is not based on a true one. The point is that if you used the “security number given by a proportion of the gap amongst the player who felt and the one who was saved”, the two bets in Round 22 and 21 in this pond would be DIFFERENT. 1700 is not the same as 2709, therefore your “security number” would not be the same either.

Czuch Chuckers: scroll down for MikeUK's post from June 23.

I seriously doubt the ratings, as they are at the moment, tell us much. I mean compare the ratings of e.g. Arctic Warrior and basplund.

Czuch Chuckers: ratings are ether...they can hardly tell you the real skills of the players neither is the list of winners..the table that MikeUK showed us several time is the only relevant measure, I believe.

Czuch Chuckers: I don't do it routinely either. Almost never check ALL the profiles (this prize pond that is running right now is an exception), just some that I have seen in the past missing a move..., i.e. dexter, skittles, ryan, etc.

2. August 2005, 00:49:00
Pedro Martínez 
Everybody, I repeat and underline, EVERYBODY, who comes to this site to play pond games, have the possibility to check other players' profiles. There is no way playing like this could be considered unfair.

Nothingness: And you cant count i have won 10 ponds. Its not the amount of ponds you win its teh % you win, anyone can just enter 1000s of ponds and if i win 3% of them, i got 30 wins.. big deal

Nothingness - 176 finished ponds, 8 wins = 4.55%
Pedro Mart. - 428 finished ponds, 89 wins= 20.8%

Nothingness:
1. Ponds are not sabotage.
2. You have finished 175 ponds and won only 7 of them. I don't understand how a person with SUCH a potential can have such a poor record. If I knew of something that would grant me 96% win ratio, I'd go for it!!!
3. What you're saying reminds me of Trice. He also claims to have a strategy (or whatever he calls it) with which you can win every pond you enter. But, for some reason, just like you, he has never showed us how it works.
4. You can study as many ponds as you wish, the game is so dynamic that it will never give you any significantly exceptional results.
5. Sabotage is not ponds.
6. Ponds are not sabotage.

Ponds can become a science if you let it and if you put in the time you could win 95 % everytime

Nonsense

But it WILL work and i guarantee you will be a top 3 player

Nonsense No.2

it would be pointless to do any research of the first few rounds

I agree. First rounds are not important at all, the goal is to survive, just like in the rain ponds.

Nothingness: What would be more useful is to monitor the endgame tendencies of the players. Who goes for the bonus and how often, who never does, etc...

Nothingness: 1) The Matarilevich's bet was very logical.

2) I assure you that if grenv bet 503, he would finish 2nd in an overwhelming majority of cases cases (in the same situation). This was just a bad luck.
