Got to nail that most average to cover my losses on closest to me!
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

You don't have to do that, that is a meaningless goal. I want you to win you know, I essentially have $50 riding on you.



Lol that's silly.

Sure, why not?

I think we're already over 20 commitments, I think we're going to maybe end up with 30 players this year. That would be $725 in Entry Fees (I don't pay because I don't get First Place money if I win) so that breaks down something like:

725 * .6 = $435
725 * .3 = $217.50
725 * .1 = $72.50

I don't know if you want to put it to a vote or just let me decide it, but I don't think that's enough for first place. I also don't think third place should get more than his/her money back. If there was $725 in the prize pool, I'd be more inclined to do something like this:

FIRST PLACE: $600
SECOND PLACE: $100
THIRD PLACE: $25

In fact, I would be inclined to say let's just keep it like that for 25+ players. If there are 25 or more players, Second Place gets $100, Third Place gets his/her money back and First Place gets everything else.



I noticed Ed putting names in green on the standings... I assume that signifies people that are in the money.

Did the 2nd and 3rd place prize idea get shot down?

Last word I had was 2nd and 3rd would be paid.

It's nice Dj and GWAE will have a consolation prize to look forward to getting. I am planning on winning.

WOOHOO. At the bottom. This is my most epic achievement!
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

That is a big achievement. I'm sure it's as tough as getting first.

I don't think the odds are that good, I'll have to be extremely lucky alone to just pass you and Prozema. DJ does have week 17 to look forward to, a week you never know what will happen.
