Default ANAL's 2019 Major Wager Superbowl Prop and Tourny Challenge

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

Mods, please sticky to the top.

Ok, Clev and Gentlemen, I think I have this baby ready to rumble. Here we go:

This contest is primarly aimed at regular posters and Mods. If you haven't had 10 posts in the past year, PM me, and I will discuss your potential entry with Clev and Company. I would like EVERYONE in this contest, to make some sort of pledge. It's going to be a lot of work for me, and I'd like all to have some skin in the game. I'm hoping we can get 10 people. I would like to see at least $50 from everyone, but if you can't afford it, see if you can scrape up something. Twenty bucks, whatever. You must have something of value you can donate. A litecoin or something. If you're not a regular poster, it should be a $50 minimum, and I'll have to run it by Truck, Clev, and Hartley, and anyone else that donated. I'm sure everyone can come up with $50 by the middle of June.

The contest will pay out 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

So far we have the following pledges:

Truckman has graciously offered $250. (Unless otherwise noted, pledged money will be split 50%, 30%, 20%).
Clevfan $100 Thank you.
Hartley $50 Thank you.
Anal $50 Your welcome.
Anal is also pledging a 1980 US Olympic Hockey poster to the winner. It's a little beat up from being tacked on a peg board, but it's cool, and it's signed by Neil Broten, and Dave Christian.

I think most of us had some fun with this contest in 2017, so I've taken the liberty of adding a few events this year, here is the lineup:

Feb 3rd Superbowl Prop Bets.
Feb 12th UEFA Soccer Round of 16
Feb 17th Daytona 500
March 19th NCAA Mens Basketball
March 29th NCAA Mens Hockey
April 6th NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs
April 11th The Masters
April 13th The NBA Playoffs
May 4th The Kentucky Derby
May 16th The PGA Championship
May 18th The Preakness
May 26th The Indy 500
May 26th The French Open
May 30th The LPGA
June 8th The Belmont Stakes
June 13th The US Open

I've also taken the liberty to change the scoring formats, and selection process. There is going to be alot more points, and alot more risk-reward type plays. The tournament formats are spelled out on the spreadsheet.

It will be imperative for you to check back regularly to get instruction and put in your lineups for the next tournament. If you're going to be out of town, or something, we'll work something out. Anyone may PM me there phone numbers, or email addresses, and I will do my best to call you if I don't have your selections. You may PM your selections to me, and I will keep them private until after the fact.

Picks need to be in before t-off, puck drop, tip-off, etc. Late selections will be disqualified, and with 50-100 points on the line for many of these tournaments, missing a tourny will be painful.

The golf tournaments and the French Open will have tiers of players to select from, and I'm holding out, until we get a little closer to those events.

After all tournaments have concluded, if there is a tie, we will settle it the next weekend, heads up, in whatever golf tournament is going on that weekend. 1 selection each, heads up, best score wins.


First we will play the prop challenge. 2 points per correct pick, and 1st gets (10 points), 2nd (7), 3rd (5), 4th (3), 5th (1).

Please post your selections to this thread, or PM me, before kickoff Sunday. I'm hosting a party, so if you can get them in early, that would be great.



For other tournies, see the spreadsheet for points awarded for entries.

In golf, we may end up with golfers tied for 2nd, or 3rd etc. We will do a psuedo playoff between tied golfers. Starting with their 4th round card, we will playoff from hole 18, and run backwards until there is an elimination.

Just remember, we are ALL playing ALL tournaments, starting with this:

30 True/False
SuperBowl Questions
1. Patriots will win the coin flip
2. Patriots will punt twice first
3. 1st TD scored by a player with at least 7 letters in last name

8. At least 3 turnovers in the game

28. At least 28 points scored in the 1st half
29. Margin of victory at least 6 points
30. Patriots win the game
TIE BREAKER Guess the total points scored in the game:

Lets have fun with this. Look over the spreadsheet, if you have questions or see some sort of speed bump coming, let me know, and we'll work through it. I'll listen to suggestions.

I know you're going to find this to be a little complicated Cwissy, and will probably make fun of me a bit, but I wanted to change things up, particularly with the NBA.

Props to Truckman, Clevfan, and Hartley for their generous donations. I encourage the rest of you to throw something at the pot, even if you have to dig out an old Jersey to mail to the winner. We all have some sort of sports paraphernalia that we could part with. Or just send someone a six pack. I'd like a Tommy Frazier jersey.

If you're confused (Cwissy, Bucky) no worries, just pick your props, and I'll walk you through the rest of the tournaments as they come along. But you'll have to keep checking back, or you'll miss out.

Post your True false answers in this thread.

1.T
2.F
3.F

etc.

Good Luck All

I want to see everyone in this. Stevo, Clev, I want you to play. I'll play nice.

DG, KP, Nino, Mikey, Vegas Boy, Cwissy, Baller, Trucker, BBQ, Anal, I would think we should be able to get a dozen or so, at least. I think Nino has to defend his 2017 title.

Default Spreadsheet for Golf 4-ball Contests

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

The 4-ball is going to need a spreadsheet of it's own, I wanted to get a link near the top of this contest for later use.

Good luck and you guys will have a blast. You will get the players to make this fun for awhile.

I read the sheet and looked at the post and not being a contest player it's a bit much for me volume and time wise. I can totally understand how others who like contests would really enjoy this. Someone else will have to take last in the prop contest.

Good luck!

I worked on this pretty much all day yesterday, and until 5 am this morning. If we don't get 10 people interested, I'll probably just shit can it.

Come on, who else is in?

Have some fun. Once a week or so, you'll put in some picks. It'll give you a rooting interest in horse races, golf, nascar, soccer, hockey, basketball, superbowl props....

It'll be fun. Just commit $50 and/or something of value, that you can send in the mail, and have some fun.

Truckman has put up $250 of his own money, just to make it more interesting.

Clev is in For $100.

Hartley is in for $50
I've added $50.

This is going to run over about 16 weeks, I'm asking for like $3 a week, to have a little action, and get in on the conversation.

It's kinda like playing fantasy football, but it's spread over multiple sports. I don't know a thing about European Soccer, or the French Open, or Nascar etc, but I'm still getting in. It's fun to watch something new, and have someone to root for.

I guess I should have added Cricket. LOL.

Wow. Is that $100 total towards the prize fund, or $100 for each person in the contest? It's hard to tell by the way it's written.

I was waiting to see if I wanted to pledge 50 to winner like last year or just contribute to pot once you guys were set. I know it's still only Thursday but the guys who showed up last year to play who were not regulars have not showed yet.

I'll pledge 50 for a spot for someone who wants to play. Prize money goes to you.

Even though I can't play I want to see this get more players. I don't want it to matter I didn't play.

This is going to run over about 16 weeks, I'm asking for like $3 a week, to have a little action, and get in on the conversation.

It's kinda like playing fantasy football, but it's spread over multiple sports. I don't know a thing about European Soccer, or the French Open, or Nascar etc, but I'm still getting in. It's fun to watch something new, and have someone to root for.


I want to cheer along when I can also and I appreciate Anny doing this.

I will play if this is accepted. I wanted to bet Mickelson this week in the Piss Management and for some reason YouWager had one tournament up and it was the PGA. What? May end up being a good thing or a bad thing. I pledge $50 steak so if Mickelson wins, $2000.
