    How this works:
    1) A $free contest will be set up in a New DK League (free because I don’t have to stress about setting a number on contest entries)
    2) you need to get the link to the league to enter, I would like to keep track of interested players and show that in the header of the thread.
    3) this contest will determine placements into “groups”
    first place will be spot 1 in Group A, second will be spot 1 in group B snd so on
    4) the number of groups is determined by the the # entries. It is possible to have 3 player groups. They will be towards the end and open to last minute replacements.
    5) groups will play intra group 50/50 for 3 weeks. In case of 3 person group it will be a 3 way.
    6) DK scoreing prevailes – 1st place in 50/50 gets 3 pts, 2nd place gets 2 pts, 3rd gets 1 pt and 4th gets 0 pts
    for 1 week ties the person with the highest player pt total is given the win
    for group play ties, total DK pts is first step determination, then highest overall week scored 2nd, and 2nd highest week is 3rd …to individual highest player score
    7) group points will determin wild card status with total DK pts as tie breakers
    DK Pts are tie breakers (accumulated or for a particular week tie just that week)
    8) Knockout round (KO) will be seeded. group winners total pts in group stage. The remaining wild card by total points in group stage
    9) KO round 1 is a match covering 2 weeks
    10) if after round 1 we still have 16 teams round 2 of KO will also be 2 weeks
    11) When it gets to top 8 it is a single week until champion is crowned
    12) $2 per week and $5 when KO round gets to top 8

    Key numbers that will determine the knock out round is 4,8,16,32,64 (no 24 or 48, no byes for KO round)
    4 is really small I expect much more that 8 people to play and 64 is a bit of a climb to get over a 100.

    rules and what not….I hope I covered my ass with possibilities, if you see anything (LOL if you read it) let me know.

    My part – I will make myself available to anyone who wishes. explanations and pushing it to complete as designed.
    unable to enter a week, talk to me, I can enter the LU you choose in your absence ($$ dont matter to me, but if you want winnings you must say upfront your good for the losings).
    I will create a league for this
    I will create the contests (seeding and groups)
    I will have results and status.
    I will use this thread and also speak of this contest in the weekly PGA thread

    Your part
    Inform me if your interested
    Understand the complexity of many people with varying degrees of software knowledge usage.
    Pay attention to what group you belong too and enter that contest only
    If you have an issue, let me know ASAP, seriously I can help, we can work out a fair solution ahead of time. After the fact is generally a DQ a loss.
    Enjoy the cash game experience in a different perspective, with others that participate on the thread. The contest is a low entry fee, You need a bunch of good picks and a lot of luck to get to the finals. Trust me when I say RG rankings meant nothing last year, the little guys are pretty darn good.

    Sounds great Tim, highly suggest entering as Tim does a great job keeping people informed of the contest and following up. Suggest you get in early as Tim is consistently getting 60+ players for his weekly happy meal contest in the golf forum. I am in.
