    A year ago, 11 of the best NBA DFS players accepted an open challenge I made. We played 30 games 12 man $100 entries over 6 weeks. Aside from each game we added another $500 for the overall champion. You got 12 points for a 1st place finish and all teh way down to 1 point for 12th place result. Ultimately Drew“Dinkpiece” Dinkmeyer edged out EmpireMaker, SocrDave and Peter CSURam Jennings for the championship.

    Welp, its a new NBA season and I am issuing another challenge. Similar rules to last year. The only differences are that we are moving to (20) $200 games and a $1,000 side pot per man for overall winners. Additionally last year we did 12 players this year we will up the field to 20 if there is enough interest.

    The expected host of this challenge is DraftKings as it was last season. We will only be playing Monday- Friday on nights with more than 4 NBA Games. Below are the proposed dates of the contests.

    Oct 29,30,31
    Nov 3,4,5,7,10,11,12,14,17,19,21,24,25,26,28,
    Dec 2, 3

    We will determine what the overall champion payouts will be once we confirm with the staff at DK.

    I think the overall winner of this should also hand out the winner’s trophy in Toledo next summer. :-)

    With Mr Tuttle joining in we now have a full field. 3 guys who played last year can still get in if they choose. Also good to have alternits in case someone drops out.

    I don’t see why not. 20 was an arbitrary number. I’ll add you to the list.

    Ok here is an update on the logistics. It would be tough for DK to withdraw the money every week for this event. We met in the middle.

    Before the first night all players will post $3k. That’s the $1k side bet and the first 10 games. Then before halfway through players must post the other $2k for the last 10 games.

    If this is an issue for anyone I understand. Just dm me here or on twitter.

    Thanks to Ethan at dk for helping us out.

    Is there an official payout structure(top 3 overall splits side money?) and format(cumulative?) yet?

  • fishcakeking

    FCK

    Will put out this weekend.

    Scoring will be cumulative throwing out single worst score. Seems to be the consensus.

    Open to suggestion on payout structure.

    Thanks,

    If it’s indeed 20k for the side pot, I’ll vote for something along the lines of $12k/$5k/$3k for the top 3.

    Start date?
    Players?
    Side Pot Payout?
    Tie Rules?
    Trophy?
    Royalty Points for Stacking 4+ Players on a Team?
    Prop Bets?

    Side bet payout. Paying top 4.
    First $10k
    Second $5k
    Third $3k
    Fourth 2k

    Cumulative fantasy points but we throw out lowest score.

    Payout for each single contest will be as follows

    $1500
    $1000
    $700
    $500
    $300

    I’m open to all suggestions.

    Any ties combine and split prizes. Hence if there is a tie for first and second. Combine the two prizes and split. This is true for daily games and side bet.

    Unlike last year we will be doing cumulative fantasy point scoring throwing out the lowest score.

    Should be fun.
