    ** New Upgrade ** PokerOwned Madness

    What is this?

    I am sure you have all seen March Madness, and the "brackets". This is essentially just like that!! Each week, those people who 'opt in' will be seeded 1-64 depending on their PLAYER RATING SCORE from the previous week. The best rating will be seeded #1, the worst #64 (So 1 will play against 64 and so on).

    *** As more people opt in AND your ratings scores change, the seedings will change constantly until Tuesday night at 00:01 the seedings will then be locked into place ***


    How do I opt in?

    From Tuesday - the following Monday the FIRST 64 people who pay 100 points will be entered into the tournament.

    If the tournament DOES NOT fill up with people who opted in, people will get auto-entered into the Madness based on the # of tournaments they played the previous week (Just like Speedway).

    *** If you bought in directly for 100 points, you win 100% of your potential prize pool
    *** If you were auto entered, you only win 5% of your potential prize pool (Better buy in next time)


    Example: If 1st place was 3000 points and you won:

    - if you paid the 100 points and bought in, you win 3000 points
    - if you were auto entered, you win 150 points (5% of 3000 points)


    Can I opt out once I opt in?

    No, because we are seeding people constantly. Once you opt in, you are in it for the week


    What do you mean I play against someone each day? What day does it start?

    Round 1 is Tuesday (all 64 players are alive)
    Round 2 is Wednesday (32 players left)
    Round 3 is Thursday (16 players left)
    Round 4 is Friday (8 players left)
    Round 5 is Saturday (4 players left - The Final Four)
    Round 6 is Sunday (Championship game against 2 players)

    You will be seeded against ONE PERSON every day that you are still alive. The way we determine a winner is as follows in THIS ORDER:

    1. First match both people play AGAINST each other. (Carbon or Juicy for now) Essentially would lasts longer in the tournament
    2. Entire days player rating (Must have at least 1 game.
    3. If neither player played, the current weeks player rating
    4. If neither player played this week, coin flip


    For example: If I was playing against Prawney, I played the 1:00 and he didn't play. Nothing happens yet.. We BOTH played in the 4:00 Carbon, whoever outlasted the other would advanced.

    If NEITHER one of us played the same tournaments together, then we go to #2, #3 then last #4



    How much can I win?

    1st place: 50% of the prize pool
    2nd: 25% of the prize pool
    3rd & 4th: 12.5% of the prize pool

    How do I know the screen name of the person I am playing again?

    Everyone's name is clickable on the brackets page, clicking it will take you right to their profile page showing you all their screen names.

    What about a progressive prize pool, any chance for that or other ways to win?

    YES! There is now a progressive prize pool attached to this. Also, for those that only win 5%, the remaining points carry over.


    Why are some names in Green?

    Because you bought in directly so everyone knows.

    If I am reading this right, this would not be a good promotion for someone like me who plays 1 game a day, right?
    (and I wouldn't qualify only playing one?)

    1 game a day (In the current setting) wouldn't be good unless you played against the person you were seeded against.

    I went with 2 games played beats 1 games played to try and prevent people from placing really high then not playing anymore during the day. I might change this to 1 game though, we'll see how it goes.

    I guess it depends.. I think most people play 1-2 games a day

    Progressive for a B2B winner..

    Was thinking about bets on winners (Like other March Madness brackets..) you could fill out your own bracket

    Potentially many brackets.. If one fills up or you could say "put me into 10 brackets" so long as there is more than XX # of players, we'll run it

    That would be one entry per bracket? and they each would be 25 or 100 points each?
