I am announcing a new WoV contest. It will be a 100% free-roll and banked by me, although donations will be accepted. Here are the rules.

  1. During a specified period of time, every player must PM to me how much money he/she wants to win. The choices are $1 or $2.
  2. If more than 50% of players choose $1, then everybody will win what he/she selects.
  3. If 50% or more players choose $2, then everybody will win $0.
  4. Individual submissions will be anonymous. Totals only will be announced.
  5. This experiment will be repeated as long as there is sufficient interest. However, I will retain the right to put a cap on the number of players. If I do, old players will have priority.


At this point I am opening the game to players. I'll accept players until noon Pacific time, August 19, or until there are 40 players, whichever happens first. After the entry period is closed, I'll ask each player to submit his play ($1 or $2) to me by Private Message. There will be a window of about two days to submit entries.

The question for the poll is what strategy will you follow?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

2 & 3 are contradictory to each other, I think..

Edit: If I were to pick $500 and everyone gets what they picked.....would I get $500? :)

Thanks, I fixed that.

I'll count anything other than $1 and $2 as not picking at all.

Please announce if you're in here. Do not PM me. So far we have one confirmed player -- SOOPOO.

Question: Can we communicate with each other and make a plan?

Coincidentally, I was just thinking of "Golden Balls" the other day.

Yes! It will be encouraged. I will allow for a kibitzing period before each round. In fact, the kibitzing may start now.

Players so far: SOOPOO, RS, Ayecarumba.

If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
