2013 DSBC Finals Preview: STLCardinals84 (#5) vs. Maxdalury (#8)
The 40 DSBC Finalists started their grueling journey way back on August 6th. Tomorrow, 1 of the 40 will be crowned Champion and awarded $100,000.
Path to $100,000: Final Forty Form a Bracket
The 40 finalists (shown in Payout Table two below) earned their way to the DraftStreet Baseball Championship throughout the MLB season by qualifying in a variety of GPP contests. Once in the finals, they competed in a two-day MLB contest where users made separate teams on Tue 8/6 and Wed 8/7 with standings being determined by combined scores from both days. Based on these standings, 28 were eliminated and paid $1,500 – $2,500 and 12 advanced to the Bracket.
The Top 4 finishes after Days 1 and 2 (gjle8140, IllinSquad, Desertfire05, & Mike5754) received a bye in the 1st round. In the Elite 8 two notable names were eliminated in 2012 DSFC Finalist IllinSquad and #7 Overall Ranked Notorious, who won $50,000 in a similar Bracket Championship just a few days prior to the Elite 8.
