Outstanding wagers: 5 BTC

In light of BitBet's turmoil over the past month, it looks unlikely that PC4 will be able to keep operating, and as such no new bets have been placed. As noted, there are currently 5 BTC in bets still outstanding, none of which have actually had their resolution criteria met, which should mean they'll be refunded, assuming BitBet's receivership and wind-down are well-executed.

It's been a bumpy ride, with ultimate results obviously less than stellar, and whether the line betting idea has its conclusion is still somewhat unknown to me; certainly a greater sample size would've better aided any sense of certainty. Assuming the profit center does indeed close with BitBet itself, I'll be putting together a post-mortem to see what can be seen.
