nice "random" brackets there pmoney. LOL!

So have you decided on dollar amount or percentage? Personally I think percentage is the better way to go.



Whoa there! If you are insinuating these brackets aren't random, I can post the link for the bracket generator. Anyone who knows me will tell you I am neither smart nor ambitious enough to even fix a game for myself or anyone else. Also, look at my wagers history! It should be obvious I made this game for the community, not myself lol.

Having said that, I decided that straight up per event earnings will be the basis of the scoring per round. I feel earnings and percentages both have their pros and cons. In the end, I just feel earnings is more simple. The playing field is level to start the season, and as we all know... You can lose it all at anytime.

Also, even if someone has a gargantuan bankroll, say $250,000... If they wager $10,000, $100,000, whatever, and they lose, that person who just decided to ride with their prediction bonuses beat them.

I hope that method of scoring doesn't change your, or anyone elses, interest level in the game. I'm doing this Big John McCarthy style: I want a good, clean sidegame!



It was just a joke, I am sure they were random.

Damn, matched up with the guy who did the best in both divisions. Thought I was in the clear for 3 points here. Nice one sublime.

Congrats to you Rabi, and my condolences Budge...

I really think this game should be intense though. There are many ways to win... and Budge, in spite of losing your first match, you gained a good chunk of money. Your ability to invest more can potentially make future match ups easier.

Anything can happen! Even in the first week, we had people win by narrow margins, slim margins, winning while losing money (just losing less), etc... It should make for an intense game!

This game was a lot easier to update the first week!

There was a lot of very tedious math. My eyes are slightly bleeding. Everything should be on point, but if you notice a discrepancy, by all means let me know.
