Dubois says that they played for a half a scudo per game from January to September. Of a total of 624 games, Dubois won by a 160 game margin, so 392-232. I don't believe this included the twenty-game match they played first, because those were at a stake of one scudo per game, and he is very specific that his 160 game winning margin in this series amounted to 80 scudi in winnings (though apparently they agreed afterwards that Cesari would pay him only 55 scudi).
