Wizard, what is the voting deadline?



Sorry, Thursday 9 AM Vegas time.

I finally got caught up on the accounting, hopefully correctly. I know OD is the official accountant, but it never hurts to have a second pair of eyeballs.

This does not take into account any pools or money for voting buying.

Here are the teams for round six. Please note the second column is for the team captain.

This time I'm going to try harder to get everyone to vote share. $10 prize pool or $30 if everyone shares.

Team Leader Followers Vote
1 SM777 OnceDear, Jmarch79, MidwestAP, UKMark
2 Mission146 DJTeddyBear, JohnnyQ, AxelWolf, beachbumbabs
3 troopscott RS, miplet, onenickelmiracle, Nathan
4 GWAE gordonm888, MaxPen, Dalex64, Romes
5 djatc Ayecarumba, Mikey75, prozema, SOOPOO
6 Face Jufo81, PlayYourCardsRight, gamerfreak
7 Keeneone Torghatten, Joeman, PokerGrinder



Okay, guys, this should be really easy this round:

There are 33 total players who will split $30 if all team leaders choose to share. That means that everyone will get 90.9 cents, in that event, which Wizard might even round up to 91 cents, who knows?

However, anyone who steals will split $10 amongst himself and his team. That means, there's only any meaningful percentage benefit if only one team steals because two teams benefit percentage-wise, but only barely, if two teams steal. If three teams steal, than each individual person on each of the three teams benefits LESS than they would have (in dollars and cents, well, cents and cents) than they would have had everyone just decided to share.

Anyway, my team has already shared. I kind of feel like either nobody is going to steal or 3+ teams are going to steal, which would just be silly in this round. Not only will Wizard pay out $20 less for the round (though I do maintain there is a maximum he plans to pay out in total, to begin with, we just don't know what that is) but each person on the three (or more) teams will make less.

AGREED - EASY.

I will ask djatc to share. But I defer to his wisdom if he doesn't agree.

I was ignoring this game for a few days, so I have zero idea why Round 5 turned out the way it did. Can anyone explain what happened?

Edit: I notice that Teams 4-7 are unchanged between Round 5 and 6. Same team captains, same team members.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.
