GMML SUPERBOWL SQUARES 2014 (BOARD UP!)

Results 1 to 51 of 51
  1. #1

    Event GMML SUPERBOWL SQUARES 2014 (BOARD UP!)


    Starting a bit late this year but same idea as last year.

    - $20 per square, 1 square minimum.
    - Buy-in due the day BEFORE the Superbowl
    - You can buy up to 10 squares ($200)
    - Can escrow via PokerStars, or Paypal
    - Anyone can play, this means you

    If you want to play, reply saying you are IN. This will put you on the list. However you will not be confirmed until you send your money. Once your money is sent, we will confirm and bold you on the list. You are now officially a cool kid.

    To Play:

    1) Reply saying you're in and how many squares (if you don't say an amount you will default to 2 for $40).
    2) Ship $20-$200 via one of the below methods:

    PokerStars: swanseaj (Avatar is a young blonde guy, location is the UK)
    PayPal: givememyleg@gmail.com [NOTE: If you send money via Paypal, make sure you select "I'm sending money to family or friends" so I'm not charged fees, yo. This should be fee free for both of us.]

    3) Tell us you shipped the money, we will confirm and update the list.


    MAKE SURE YOU TELL US WHO THE HELL YOU ARE.

    If your forum name is bigred you need to let us know what your Tilt/Stars username is, or the e-mail you sent money via Paypal. If you don't want this information public, you can PM me.

    Details and How to Win

    Each square costs $20. To participate you must purchase a minimum of 1 for $20, and can purchase up to 10 for $200. This will make the total prize pool $2,000.

    Once all 100 squares are purchased, the final list will be placed in random order. Your name will appear on this list for as many squares as you purchased.

    Example

    Pascal
    givememyleg
    givememyleg
    a500lbgorilla
    bigred
    etc.

    We will then use http://www.random.org/sequences/ to assign each name a number.

    Example

    81 Pascal
    64 givememyleg
    52 givememyleg
    55 a500lbgorilla
    43 bigred
    etc.

    This number will be your square on the grid.

    The numbers along the x and y axis of the grid will also be randomly selected using http://www.random.org/sequences/ by SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME so yal don't think I'm cheating.

    So we will end up with something like below:


    (Note this is not the official grid)

    So based on this example, the numbers we would have are

    Example

    Pascal: 1,3
    givememyleg 2,2
    givememyleg 5,4
    a500lbgorilla 2,0
    bigred 9,8

    Prizes

    If your numbers match the ending number of each team, you will win

    1st Quarter:$250
    2nd Quarter: $500
    3rd Quarter: $250
    4th Quarter: $1,000


    Winners

    If you win, we can discuss a method that is most convenient for you and the escrow. Since there may be shuffling issues (money spread across Stars and Paypal), it may take a few days after the Superbowl to receive your coin. You will be contacted via PM.

    If We Don't Sell Out

    Obviously the prize pool will be less depending on how many squares were sold. For example, let's say we sell 60 squares, that leaves 40 remaining, for a prize pool of $600. Prizes would then be:

    Q1: $150
    Q2: $300
    Q3: $150
    Q4: $600

    The 40 squares that are leftover will be randomly given out in a lottery. However many squares you purchased is how many entries you will have in the lottery.

    booked.

    I also lowered the max squares for purchase to 5 for now to allow more people to play. If there are still some available next week I'll up it back to 10.

    btw i'm in for 4.

    Also, just to mention, I'm going to be super strict payment wise this year so I don't get burned. It wasn't too bad last year, but was stiffed by 1 person. If you haven't sent me the money for your squares by midnight the day before the super bowl, your squares will be re-sold or given away via lotto.

    Whenever Tyson posts in a current thread I always think I got suckered into reading a 10 year-old bump.

    so we still have 41 squares left.

    i was attempting to run two separate boards, one for irl friends and one for ftr. however, both are having issues selling out. if they both still have a bunch of squares remaining by the end of the week, i'm going to combine them into one. the other league is $20 per square which means anyone who bought any in this league would get half. if you bought an odd amount like 5, you would get 2 and be refunded for the .5, unless you wanted to pay to get 3.
  31. #31
    still not close to selling out, going to combine both boards into one and will PM everyone about it. squares will now be worth $20.
  32. #32
    SOLD OUT.
  33. #33
    sold out and i only have 5 squares, sighduck

    if someone cancels or doesn't pay or if you need to sell more, i'll buy up to 5 more for $20 each so that i can have a total of 10. just book me if you trust me and i'll send when i come online (busy weekend, might not check forum).
