Actually, you can start making picks now if you want. Odds are already out for tomorrow's matches. I may do my picks soon.
Now may be the best time to bet on some of the favourites. I will wait for you to start and then may place a bet or two now myself.

I know you said "make as many bets as you want", but someone possibly making 56 bets would be very difficult to count. Are you fine with that? (Not that I would make that many bets personally). I think a limit of 12 or 15 would be a good idea.

Good question. I would suggest just one to avoid making it confusing. And then if this is successful, we can increase for later tournaments. Let's see what Freak3yman84 has to say.

I guess I'd be fine with 56 bets If you REALLY want to, then go ahead.


And to nole's question I already said 1

Before I make my bets, do later rounds continue with remaining money or is it a fresh start from $100?

Default Re: THE Game - In Trial (OP Has New Rules)

By knockouts, do you mean like the World Tour finals?

If so, how would you seperate between two players who have equal records (who would get to the semifinals, who would go to losers round)

Also, who is in Group A and who is in Group B?

The answer to your first question is, no. It goes like a real draw, see the OP. The winner of me vs. Litotes plays the winners of Lenders vs. Sham. The winner of The Rocket vs. Pratik plays the winner of you vs. nole_no1. Once I know who the losers are I'll place them in a consolation draw Everyone is guaranteed 2 matches.

^knock out means a normal tournament, only QF onwards.
WTF is round robin.

Consolation draw should also be the same way. Loser of OP vs. Litotes plays the loses of Lenders vs. Sham. The loser of The Rocket vs. Pratik plays the loser of UT vs. nole_no1.

by knockouts i mean like any other normal tournament around. the original idea was for all the players to make bets untill the end of the tournament and who has the most money at the end wins. you can see my idea which i posted earlier because i'm too lazy to repeat it again

Okay I see, thanks Pratik and Freaky. My terminology knowledge is lacking

So it's more like the Olympics then, a normal draw with extras.

So Winner of the draw gets 1st place.
Finalist of the draw gets 2nd place.
Winner of COnsolation Semis gets 3rd
Loser of Consolation Semis gets 4th
And then there are two Consolation 1st rounds/Qfs
...
You could give different ranking points for each place.
