Just refreshing this as new readers come to the site during training camp! Thanks again to Adam for letting me post this here on WCG.
Last year I posted about my survivor pool here and a few WCG readers signed up and played. We went from 37 to 75 entries between years 1 and 2 of the pool. This year, I expect a few more people will join than the 75 we had last year. I'm extending an invitation to all of you to play this year.
The rules, in a nutshell, are as follows: Pick a team that you believe will win their week 1 game. If you lose, you're eliminated. If you win, you get to pick in week 2 and so on. The catch? You can't ever pick a team twice. The last man standing wins the whole pot, which last year was just short of $2500. The buy-in per entry (and you can buy up to 3) is $30 via PayPal or check. The rules and signup info and payment info are right on the website - http://windycitypool.survivor.sportsfan.com. Pass along to friends if you wish.
If anyone is interested and has any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. And FYI, all the money gets paid out. This is just a hobby of mine and I'm not pocketing any of the funds for my own profit. The website costs (about $50) come out of the entry fees.
