Current Update (as of 9:00 AM Sunday 3/27)
on Elite 8 page.





The sheets are all in.  I'm working on the analysis, which will probably take me until Saturday.  But I can share a little bit of high level stuff right now.

First, we have 40 sheets.  That is $200 in prize money. 

Prize Money Allocation

Champion - $100

Runner Up - $40

3rd Place - $30

4nd Place - $20

5th Place - $5

Last Place - $5 Money Back Guarantee


The standings now include two additional reference sheets.  All Favorites and Consensus Picks.

All Favorites is something I like to do each year to dispel the notion that you can pick just favorites and win.  I've done this for years, and while all favorites will usually finish in the top half, even top quarter, they never make the money.

Consensus picks are if you took all of our brains, stuffed them into a jar (we'll pretend it's a large jar), called in Gene Wilder and Teri Garr, added a jolt of lightening and created one Frankenstein sheet of our collective intelligence.  Hint... it doesn't win either.


Projections

Nine different people are in the running for some cash at the end of this pool. 

Here is a breakdown of everyone's chances. 

P.S. Projections are unofficial.  Prize money will be paid based on final standings. 
Just in the off chance I made a mistake here!

Last year EVERYONE paid with Venmo or PayPal.  I'm begging for the same this year.  CASH is OK if you see me and don't mind me asking "did you pay me?" in a couple weeks.

Bonus for you.  I'm pretty clumsy with these apps and my randomly send you money later in the year.

If PayPal or Venmo absolutely won't work...

CASH: if you can find me
