    was hoping we still had the 2500 point buyin contest, assuming that isn't happening now?

    instead of 80 entries for $15k in prizes i guess it's a million entries for $2k

    Yeah I had a rough ncaa season the last couple months and was waiting for this thing. All the games and everyone and their brother in it is a crapshoot.

    well there's at least 32 since there are that many entries already... i would guess there would be around 200 entries total?

    so a crapload of work making 44 picks (and remembering to come back for champ game) for a whopping $10 worth of value... vs last year when it was around $200 worth of value

    not that i ever cashed in it anyway

    Yep... this was the best contest every single year here. Hopefully some SBR member could run the (points) contest for us? I'm sure its very time consuming. But who knows??? Maybe our points aren't worth anything.

    i would've rather had this be a 2500 point buyin, even with the smaller prizes... that would clear some points out of the system and narrow the field

    heck, make it a 5000 point buyin and i would still be in

    Wow Bro. You posted across the street for a bit when you got your feelings hurt here. No need to bash another site. Nothing wrong with posting at more than one site.

    The people over there enjoyed your post. Seems like you enjoyed posting there too.

    Saturday has a poker tourny. Play for shits and giggles just like old times.

    1st off Frank my “feelings” weren’t hurt at all. Just pointing out some issues with my little time out vs how things are now.

    thanks for the poker offer. I have all my poker needs done right here in NJ. Good luck with your play
