    Does DK distribute the money as well (is it done daily or at the end). Do you send out the rankings each day?

    Thanks

    dk distributes all money. Each gpp gets paid out standard/daily. Overall gets paid at the end. I will post standings after each contest.

    One other note, if anyone is in a jurisdiction that DK eliminates during the contest. They can choose a replacement from a different state. Hopefully this wont be an issue/

    Hey I think you have some issues with your excel sheet for the rankings. On the total points WS tab it looks like you are manually looking for the minimum score (why not just use the formula =SUM-MIN as this would eliminate the errors currently deducting the wrong minimum and understating the total points and rankings for brewers 828, Empire Maker2 and JL003 which impacts the entire field.

    Also why not use the rank formula to eliminate errors on the ranking page where ties in cash ranking currently have errors (JL003 and mphst18 both have 900 but JL003 is ranked 38 and mphst18 37).

    Let me know where to send and I will send you an automated excel sheet to do all this where you just have to drop in the scores/cash in alphabetical order as you have been and everything else will auto calculate.

    Lastly in terms of consistency, I noticed JSCARFINO was given a 0 on day 3 (was he allowed to submit a late line up or know how to as it appears you are allowing tommy g from last night?) On twitter last night you mentioned you are going to count his score as he submitted a lineup (Not sure who it was viewable to) at 7:33. This seems very inconsistent that one player who may not know how to contact you has to take a 0 but a player who does know how to contact you gets to earn points for a lineup that was not submitted on time and not viewable buy the contestants.

  • Mphst18

    The more I think about this the more I think tommyg has to take a 0 for day 4. In any contest held on dk if you do not submit a lineup you get a 0. Since dk is hosting this tournament and distributing daily and overall funds I don’t think it is a good look that an audit of day 4 scoring on dk would show 0 for tommyg but then at the end of the challenge funds are distributed for total scores that reflect a value greater than 0 for tommyg on day 4. Add in the lack of visabilty to an alleged submission of a lineup at 733 with the fact another user had to take a 0 on day 3 and you have a big legiticimy question to the contest.

    The line up for Tommy was posted on twitter right after lock (before any games actually tipped off) and he also provided a link to another contest he used the line up in so people could track his scores. He removed himself from being able to late swap as well.

    This was posted before the 730 games actually tipped off

  • Mphst18

    So does DK allow all there clients to do that when they forget to submit their lineup. Just utilize twitter or one of my other lineups?

    Is it fair to the guy on day 3 who had to take a 0 because he forget to enter his lineup, why wasn’t one of his other contest entries used or his twitter postings.

  • Mphst18

    I also appreciate The fact on Twitter that you think I am biased. I’d prefer to think I am more one who takes responsibility to enter a lineup on time per the rules of the sites but hey to each their own. I also
    Would enjoy the 1 to 10 min from lock to actual tipoff to look at early game ownership before submitting my lineup which I don’t think he did but can be done in this scenario that you seem to think is kosher.

    DK KoTH winner

    Mphst18 actually brings up a fair point. I wasn’t aware that others had taken a zero already. Also it was never posted prior to the challenge starting that this was a way to handle forgetting your lineup. Either way is fine by me but it certainly is a fair viewpoint from mphst18.

    You are absolutely biased, this challenge is supposed to be about competition and determining the best and you are trying to get a guy to take a zero when he had a line up that was visible and time stamped. He also provided a link to another contest that locked at same time so I dont think he was looking at ownership percentages.

    This also proves that you have twitter and could have seen Tommy’s line up prior to games tipping off. You sound like a sore loser.

  • Mphst18

    We each enter for our own motifs but I appreciate you being the definer of what the contest is about and not sure why it wouldn’t be a freeroll in your eyes instead of ponying up $2500 since its all about the comp and nothing to do with $$$$.

    Apparently the other 40 contestants appeared to be able to follow the rules of the site they play everyday and enter their lineup on time without the possibility of having the advantage of looking at the 7:30 owenrship levels but hey lets make an exception for your friend (now lets talk biased) on day 4 but not some guy you don’t know on day 3 who took a 0 (hmm you seem to be silent on this).

    I have met Tommy one time, barely know the guy. If the guy on Day 3 posted his line up before games tipped off with a time stamp for people to see, I absolutely dont think he should receive a zero either.

    If you look at the line up, Galloway is locked in, you can see the lock, so he couldnt have looked at the 730 ownership and made a change, its clearly a photo of a line up that was locked in at 730. It makes no sense that you think he could have looked at 730 ownership.

    If anything he was at a disadvantage as he could not late swap and anyone else could look at ownership on other sites and adjust for the 8 pm or later games.
