    Some of you may recall that last year we held a multi-day contest that pitted the same group of players against each other day after day to determine who could consistently beat out their opponents for MLB GPP glory. Well, it’s back, and this time our friends over at FantasyAces are running the show!

    Update!

    Sign ups for this contest will close at 7pm EST tonight, Friday, May 15th! We’ve worked out the details, and here’s the breakdown of how the payouts/structure will work. Note that everything here is assuming 80 people, and we will adjust the exact numbers depending on how many we end up with:

    The daily $11 GPP will be a private contest, with an email address sent to each participant daily to grant access. You will be responsible for entering this GPP each day. This means that initially you only need to depost the $50 side pot and the $11 for the first GPP, but you will be responsible for buying into the $11 GPP each day.

    The daily GPP will pay out the top 15 players, and first place will be awarded 80 leaderboard points (again, assuming 80 participants) all the way down to 1 point for last place. Each player will have their lowest score dropped at the end of the contest to allow for a missed day. Games will be run Monday-Friday and will only include the night games.

    As for the side pot prizes, we will have two forms of payouts. The top 8 in overall standings will be paid out:

    • 1st: $1,000
    • 2nd: $750
    • 3rd: $500
    • 4th-8th: $250

    +In addition, the top three highest scores thoughout the entire contest, regardless of when they occured will win $500/$300/$200, respectively.*

    To keep people interested towards the end, the guys at Aces have thrown in some extra prizes that you can win even if you’re out of contention for the overall leadearboard! In addition to chasing the highest score prizes, on the last three days, FantasyAces will be throwing in a $109 Qualifier Ticket to first place, and a Aces t-shirt to second place. That way, even if you can’t win the whole thing, you can still take home first place money, $500 for highest score, and a $109 ticket to the FAWBC Qualifier!

    The first day of the contest will be Tuesday, May 19th, so get ready!

    For those of you that don’t remember from last year, here is how it works:

    • Each player enters an $11 GPP every day for 20 days.
    • Before the event begins, each player deposits an extra $50 on to FantasyAces to be included as part of the Side Pot (this makes the total for the event $270).
    • Each GPP pays out like a normal Aces tournament.
    • Every night, each player is awarded leaderboard points depending on where they finish in that night’s contest. Last place is awarded 1 point, second-to-last place gets 2 points, etc.
    • Each player will have their lowest score dropped to allow for an off day.
    • The Overall Leaderboard will be posted here on RG for you to track.
    • At the end of the 20 days, the Side Pot money will be awarded to the players that finish at the top of the Overall Standings Leaderboard.

    Exact payouts will depend on the number of people that sign up to participate, but we had 20 players last year and DFS has grown juuuuuust a little bit since then, so I expect more than that this time around. Everyone had a blast this year, so I’m looking forward to seeing who can emerge victorious!

    Huge thanks to the guys over at FantasyAces for hosting this for us.

    If you want to participate, simply make a deposit on FantasyAces here (deposit at least the $270 required to participate) and post in this thread that you’re in. It’s that simple!

    Once we get everyone signed up, we’ll pick a start date and get things rolling.

    Get ready to Grind!

    dammit, too many sharks.

    ok, time to win some easy money

    To be honest, the fact that it’s single entry makes it pretty nice that there are a few sharks in there imo. Time to prove who the real sharks are!

    Also, I added a list of those who signed up to the OP, for refernce. 38 and counting!

    Based on last year, you need to deposit $270 and the entire total will be removed from your account before you are officially “in.” If you miss a day, you just paid $11 for a big fat ZERO. No refunds of any kind. Luckily we get to drop our lowest score.

    No reason to think this year will be any different.

    Actually, after talking to the guys from Aces, they said they would prefer if everyone entered the conest themselves each day. Because of the way their site is set up they would just create a private contest and I would email you all the password to enter it. That said, if you don’t enter you still get a big fat zero in leaderboard points for the day.

    Now in the end it’s up to Aces if they want to change that, but that was what we landed on when we discussed it the other day.

    May I suggest (beg for) a $109 FABC Qualifier ticket for 1st place?

  • CrazyGabey

    I’m not going to put anyone (Trent) on the spot, but there better be some of that killer FA swag as part of the payouts for the top finishers. Those hoodies aren’t going to wear themselves.

    Could somebody from Aces post what the pay table would look like assuming 40 players?

    We could make it it between Top 5 or Top 10 payout for the daily game. It is really up to you guys and Cruzin to let us know what you guys prefer.

    I understand but there’s a problem with that. At a certain point many people will no longer have a chance to “win” therefore they will stop entering the contests. Every time someone doesn’t enter is $11 less in the prize pool. We’re signing up to play for 20 contests not we’ll play when we feel like it. That’s not in the spirit of the “MLB Grind.”

    Anyway to prevent those things from happening?

    They can create private freerolls, no?
