    When does this offer to buy 300 shares at a discount rate expire?

    "Max shares per person sold through this post: 300 shares for 1,800 points"

    good question. We actually ask ourselves that and no one seems to know. You have been around a while and so you have probably noticed we try some different things between the Super Bowl and Labor Day. Some ideas like video turn into sponsorship income streams and some like SBR Sportsbook Babes are a bust.

    Disregard the class clowns. Unless something is posted by SBR or someone expressly mentioned as representative of the fund, it is unofficial. One of the things you'll see as this thing gets started is the trading thread / picks threads will not have discussion. They are places where shareholders and potential investors looking to acquire shares can observe and take part with no sideshows. Discussion threads will take place elsewhere.

    Do it right. Investors in fund 1 should be only ones with option to buy ipo of fund 2. Fund 2 only open to others through open market. People invested in first fund are risking most and should be rewarded with ipo discount like normal funds work. Just my 2 cents.

    You could probably get a betpoints loan from some of point sharks with this going on. Or, whip out some plastic and throw a good cause a donation. You going to want to hang with the sharps at the bash so might as well get er done.

    You had more than 10,000 points at some point and kept betting at the book.

    Here is your sign!

    Fun idea.

    You dont write if the fund managers can bet moneylines. If so, the fund managers who are trailing in the end will have an incentive to bet huge moneylines to catch up and win the 1000 point. As far as I read it, the fund managers doesnt risk anything if the fund go badly.

    The fund managers should be either required to buy a large amount of shares in their own fund, or their weekly compensation should be more result orientated instead of just a fixed amount.

    EDIT: I just realized it is 1 fund and not 4 funds. However with moneylines the incentive problem still exist, and I actually think the 1000 point reward hurts more than it helps.

    We have limits on ML favs and dogs. I do not recall what they are. We will replace any manager that we believe is not trading in good faith. I think they will do their best.
