    Howdy Folks,

    Few months ago I saw a thread started for NBA h2h challenge between RG members. Any interest in doing the same for MLB? $5 or $10 buy-in seems fine if we can field 32 or 64.

    I wouldn’t mind escrowing but if anyone more reputable wants to step up that’s OK w/ me.

    If you’re interested, leave a comment with your preferable buy-in level

    Cheers,

    -blitz

    Fanduel it is. $10 buy in.
    Double elimination. Top 3, 65/25/10 pay outs.

    1. $299
    2. $115
    3. $46

    There’s a free h2h option if you want to avoid rake.
    Looks like we will easily fit 64 so go ahead n send $10 to blitzology@gmail.com. Send money as friends/family to avoid fees!

    PLEASE leave your RG username and email in the PayPal message box so I can keep records. First 64 that send money are in.

    Here is the list of people that paid so far…

    Send me an email blitzology@gmail if I missed you.

    Starting Tuesday 6/15 7:05pm ET slate. We aren’t going to fill 64 so some of you will get a (random) lucky bye so just sit tight until you’re match up w/ someone.

    It’s up to you guys to get in touch with your opponent to set up the match. Set up a free H2H private match. Best of 1 series. Winner of the match take a screen shot of results and email to me blitzology@gmail.com so I can update bracket. Also post in thread if you won so people can keep track on their own.

    There are no lineup restrictions.

    2-day grace period to set up a match. I will judge whether opponent receives forfeit for being tardy. Matches that need a grace period won’t affect pace of play of everyone else.

    Matches will be played Mon-Fri 7PM main slates. You can also play during a weekend slate but I won’t count those days for the grace period. You’re not obligated to play on weekends.

    Everyone was assigned a # above so here is the random sequence generator via random.org to determine seedings

    Wow, lots of early interest. $10 seems fine w/ everyone.

    Fanduel was the site I had in mind.

    Double elimination would be fun. World Cup style is risky since there’s a chance people will not touch base for their 3rd March if they’re mathematically eliminated.

    Double elim also gives a clear cut 3rd place without having to play a consolation match. I’m in favor of only paying top 2 70/30 but I can settle for 65/25/10 if majority wants.

    I will check back soon to see if we get more interest before I start collecting buy-ins.

    Once I collect buyins I will randomly assign everyone a number (for seeding) to build a bracket.

  • amarkham

    FD works for me. I like the double elimination idea as well if it wouldn’t be too much work for you to set up.

    I’m in favor of 3rd place getting paid as it would give one last sweat for whoever is in the 3rd place game at the end.

  • sberger

    Fanduel works good for me. also in favor of paying 3rd place

    So if we have a 64 man bracket (55 people said they were in already not including the DK only guys), payouts would look like this:

    1st: $416
    2nd: $160
    3rd: $64

    Double elimination would be my vote. I am fine with Fanduel. A lot of sites out there to generate a double elimination bracket pretty easily. Let me know if you need help with anything.

    whatever site you play on, there will be rake removed from that 640 total $$ figure.

  • notfast1

    How are you going to set this up so that each person plays who they are supposed to etc?

  • fadein34

    I’m in if spots still available.

    I was under the assumption that all the money/payouts/brackets would be handled “offline” by the OP. The matchups would just be free H2H matchups on Fanduel. Obviously each individual matchup could decide if they want to play for a separate fee though. That wouldn’t affect the payouts though.

    oh gotcha.

    this makes a lot more sense to me

    Is it possible to mass PM on RG?
