b) a shiny brand new custom user title name plate to go under your RF name that indicates that you are the 2010 NBA pick em champion (courtesy of Lang).




(you can swap this for a Bosh (home/away) or Calderon (away) jersey if you wish)




here are the rules:

-the Pool takes place every Sunday (beginning on Sunday Feb 21)
-Each player starts off with $100 RF dollars in their bank.
-Players MUST bet on every NBA game scheduled on that Sunday, and wager an amount of RF dollars for each game
-Players can bet up to a total $100 each Sunday, and must bet on EVERY game for that day.
-If a Player loses all of his money, that player is eliminated.
-the player who has the most RF dollars in the bank at the end of the NBA season will be crowned Champion!


EXAMPLE---------------------------------------------
lets say Sunday's NBA schedule is:

Bobcats vs La Lakers
Raptors vs Knicks
Cavs vs Rockets
Pistons vs Spurs

I have $100 RF dollars in my bank.
my bet for this Sunday is:
50 dollars on Lakers to beat Bobcats
15 dollars for Raptors to be Knicks
2 dollars for Cavs to beat the Rockets
20 dollars on Spurs to beat Pistons.

(altogether i bet $87. it was under the allotted $100 limit, and i bet on every game scheduled for the day.)

the outcome turns out to be:
Lakers defeat Bobcats (i win 50)
Raptors beat Knicks (i win 15)
Cavs beat Rockets (i win 2)
Pistons beat Spurs (i lose 20)

therefore, at the end of the day i won $47 RF dollars.
and add that to my bank for a grand total of $147 RF dollars.

----------------------------------------------------

its that easy... you wager your money on who you think will win...any amount you choose, but you have to remember that you cannot wager more than $100 per week, and you have to bet on EVERY game for that Sunday.
so you must be strategic and play smart.
remember, you dont have to bet the full $100 limit, you can bet as cheap or as risky as you want! but you have to make a wager on every game scheduled for the day.

Every week i'll post a leaderboard, and post the scedule for the upcoming Sunday. Players will have until Sunday 12:00pm to PM me with their bets for that Sunday.

WEEK 1 BEGINS NOW:

Sunday February 21st, 2010 - SCHEDULE:


Cle @ Orl
Bos @ Den
SAS @ Det
Mem @ NJ
Hou @ NO
OKC @ Min
Atl @ GS
Sac @ Pho
Utah @ Por


You have until Sunday February 21 @ 12:00pm to PM your bets to me.

THE GAME STARTS NOW!
GOOD LUCK

(if you are interested in joining this pool, you must PM me asking to join - the deadline is Monday Feb 15).

nope.
you can wager as little or as much as you want...
the one rule is that you cannot wager more than $100 for the entire day (sunday), and you must bet on every game scheduled for that day (sunday).

like in my example above... altogether i bet $87. it was under the allotted $100 limit, and i bet on every game scheduled for the day.

lemme know if this is still unclear.

no, you have to bet on every game scheduled for that sunday.

lets break this down for you guys:

a) you have to bet on every single NBA game scheduled for that Sunday
b) the limit you can bet is up to $100 dollars.
c) you can bet any amount you want for any game, as long as a) you bet on every game played, and b) you dont spend over $100 for that day.

does that make sense?
if you're having trouble with the rules or dont understand something just ask... because if you break any of the rules - your submission for that week will be void.

Making your picks this early is a recipe for disaster. You don't know whos injuried/whos playing. You don't know which team is hot or which team is cold. And if your gonna bet 80-90 percent of your bankroll even on the nets, your better off giving some cash to charity. Money management is key.... Just my 2 cents, so you past a couple of rounds at least
