THE Game - In Trial - Litotes and Unforced Terror GOAT Montreal!

This is a trial game, I, Lenders, Sham Kay, Litotes, Unforced Terror, nole_no1, The Rocket, and Pratik are playing the trial.

The rules:
- Each person starts off with $100 (not real money)
- Each person can bet however much they want within the amount they have. They can also make any type of bet (match winner, tournament winner, number of sets, it's all good!)
Example of a bet: $10 on Pospisil to beat Isner @2.35 (MAKE SURE to put who the player is playing!)
- Each time someone bets, they will make a new post
- The winners and losers of both matches will play each other again in another tourney
- Each day a player has the right to block a bet which means their opponent cannot make that same bet. This is to prevent players from copying their opponents' picks exactly. Just write "BLOCK" after the bet
- You must bet all of the money you start a round with or else you forfeit the remaining money.
- I will add $25 to everyone's total at the beginning of each new round

That should cover it

The draw:
Freak3yman84 vs. Litotes
Sham Kay vs. Mark Lenders
The Rocket vs. Pratik
Unforced Terror vs. nole_no1

THE TOURNAMENT WILL NOW BE KNOCKOUT WITH CONSOLATION!
Monday and Tuesday - QFs
Wednesday and Thursday - SFs (Consolation semis)
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - Finals (Consolation finals)

We'll start with main draw because Lenders is banned during qualies

But Lenders will be back then, won't he? Or is it Monday?

EDIT - I see he's back Monday. I'll refrain from making any bets until then.
