1st NBA Fan Duel Bracket Tournament ($50 entry)

Let's see if we can get this going. This will be held on Fan Duel. All money off the site.

COST:
$50. We'll leave it at $50 for now in hopes to get more people to join. Payment collected at end, and sent to winner(s). I'll personally make sure the winner(s) get paid if there's a deadbeat in the group.

HOW MUCH PEOPLE DO WE NEED:
8, 12, or 16 people

START DATE:
Wednesday December 7th (Twice week - Wed and Fri). If there are any soft weeks over the holidays with small slates, the players can govern whether or not to push back a week.

RULES:
This is a bracket style tournament that will consist of a 1 vs. 1 match-up with combined scores from Wednesday's and Friday's match. It'll be a random draw to determine who's facing who. Winner advances, and the exercise is repeated the following week.

If 8 people - 8, down to 4, down to 2, down to winner ($250/$150)
If 12 people - 12, down to 6, down to 3 (3 man), down to 2, down to winner ($400/$200)
If 16 people - 16, down to 8, down to 4, down to 2, down to winner ($500/$300)

Declare interest. If by Sunday, we have at least 8, we roll. If we have less, we'll try again in the new year. If, for some reason, we have 9 interested, I'll sit out and just delegate.

Ok? Ok.

We need 3 more. Maybe Hotpicks and I havent been seeing JRPATSFAN around but I know he plays NBA FD.

Maybe have an 8 man on Monday to seed and then play elimination H2H on Weds/Fri/Sat so we can wrap it up in a week? Any ideas?

PEACE

I can't commit to a Saturday match.

The H2H's are supposed to be a two day (total point) match. Monday and Wednesday vs. the same guy counts as one match. Total points win.

We have 6 confirmed. Need two more before Wednesday.

Doesn't look like we have enough. We'll give it to tomorrow morning, and then cancel if we don't get to 8 players.

i will play if you get 1 more and need me too.

how are you seeding on who is playing who? random.org? and use those are 1-8 seeds? 1/8, 2/7, 3/6, 4/5?

my vote would be for 300/100 or 325/75 payout. 3x for 2nd with 8 people is way too high, IMO.

I'm easy with payouts, and I've never used random.org but will.

I'll basically get names listed 1 through 8, and it'll be 1 v 8, 2 v 7, and so on.

We still need 1, or it's all for not anyways.

I'm easy with the setup.

One last thing.

Why don't you set up one link with all 8 of us, so we can all track each other's matches for entertainment value.

If not, I'll set up mine and LT's H2H.

I beat Pimp in a H2H last night for $50 (off the site). My proudest accomplishment since losing my virginity.
