    I believe it is something like the top 15-20% get prizes. There were no settings to set it up.

    I am going to wait a few days to sign up just so all the rules can be known but count me in. 15-20% payouts sound nice and should get a lot extra people to join I would think. 1000 picks still is more then I would have wanted but that is fine. Won't not play because of that.

    Hopefully we will have at least 10. I thought there would have been around 100 ppl. But I guess ppl only like joining contest that SBR puts on.

    Since nothing was specified (and I don't think anything can be in non-SBR contests) here are the system defaults:

    Members 1-9
    1st: 100%

    Members 10-19
    1st: 60%
    2nd: 25%
    3rd: 15%

    Members 20-49
    1st: 50%
    2nd: 20%
    3rd: 15%
    4th: 10%
    5th: 5%

    Members 50+
    1st: 30%
    2nd: 20%
    3rd: 14%
    4th: 9%
    5th: 7%
    6th: 6%
    7th: 5%
    8th: 4%
    9th: 3%
    10th: 2%

    Good Luck to All!

    it seems the buyin is more affordable now. I hope I can come up with 1000 +EV picks, though I doubt that will be a problem if I can figure out a way to make +EV plays in baseball (shudder)...

    Hopefully not. I was trying to get this going last year, but it seemed liked there was not enough notice or something.

    I hope this thing will continue to grow each year, and tweaking it to make it a better contest.

    I'm not 100% sure. I'm assuming yes though. LT Profits knows the most about the contest, maybe he will chime in.

    I wish I could edit my posts also. I want to change the original post to:

    Contest will run all year (2012) for all possible sports and options (ML, totals, sides). 100 point buy in. If you think you are a Boss at making picks come join. Min 1000 picks Max 2500 picks.
    1-5 bet range

    Honestly, what is the caliber of those involved so far? I'm not a great capper, but I certainly don't want to join and find out there's a couple gurus who frequently kill it and I would have little or no chance (seeing as I really only do well in one or two sports and would be guessing)

    There is no deadline to join, you can wait until December and make 1000 plays in a couple of weeks if you want.

    I think we should cut off the deadline before the start of the new year and get odds in the sportsbook for who will win. that would make it so fun lol

    I don't thnk that's possible for non-SBR contests. Besides, the more the merrier, provided they join in time to make 1000 plays.

    Had to gather up 100 points, I'll be joining in a few minutes.. Just keep bumping the contest for awhile. I'm sure people will keep joining up to April or May.

    You get 367 days to make picks, so only 2.72 picks a day for minimum
