I thought maybe we should quickly decide and get the measure of how much we collude to empty Wizard's pockets.
Please post to say whether you want to follow the strategy as suggested by SooPoo. Then we'll let SooPoo decide whether it's workable.
Poll is multi-select.

I voted 1 and 2... I'm for it.

I agree with SOOPOO's strategy. I will be voting STEAL for round #1



So... Soopoo, OnceDear, Joeman are in on the basic strategy..

I'll edit this post to extend and update the list as we progress.

OD!!!! This thread should not exist, as there already is a thread specifically on all aspects of the Cooperation Game. Who do you think you are, Nathan?

but, Nathan, and others...
Are you committing to pool your winnings, because that what makes the strategy work when Mike starts shuffling the teams. It's not enough to vote in the poll because individual votes are not visible.

ps. Jeez Nathan, your sig just grows and grows.

I have no issues with pooling the money at the end so count me in for that. I also still say anyone who is pooling the parlay money at the end kicks in $3 a week ($120 a week) which would be added to what we get from the wizard. we could end up with a 1k parlay potentially if we maximize our wins from the wiz.

now my 6 team mlb parlay today ($15) pays 197.51 now hit something like that with pooled and wizard funds and we end up with 13k which would be $330 each. Just my two cents and I am in either way. As far as I am concerned a few guys could go into Bellagio or Aria and play a 25 or 50 dollar machine max bet with it. It is to me more about hitting a lick. I am even in for re-parlaying the funds a second time makes no difference. No issues how the money is done at the end just make it happen and make the bet fun



I have brewers, braves, dodgers, blue jays, yankees and Cubs today.

I put in my vote as per SeePoo's suggestion(supposedly), however, I remain pessimistic it will all come together.

I voted steal as per soopoo's suggestion. I'm on board with splitting winnings with team members who go along with the collusion.

Ditto. I voted 1 and 2.

I also might go along with investing in a parlay at the end, but I want more information about that before committing to it.

I would consider gambling the money as well. I understand evenbob has a roulette strategy. Is he playing?

I propose a 15% tax on any and all future earnings from these contests. Said proceeds to be used at the semi annual elitist retreat often referred to as Spring Fling.

Did I say tax? I meant convenience surcharge. Taxes suck.

Can someone explain the poll numbers on the top of the page. They appear to add up to a tad over 100%.

You can vote for multiple things. Thus if you're 1 person and vote twice, that will be 2 votes per 1 person, 200% value.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
