Jammer/BetDSI March Madness Contest Rules/Invitees

#1
Let's have some fun gents. Four ways to win some $$$.

Contest #1- Pick 1 team from each of the 16 seeds, that you think will go farthest in the tournament.
There are some play in games for the #11 and #16 seeds, so you can specify if a certain team wins, or just wait until the those games are played.
Like last year, we will have weighted round values as teams advance:

Round of 64: 1 x seed
Round of 32: 2 x seed
Round of 16: 3 x seed
Round of 8: 4 x seed
Final 4 round: 6 x seed
Championship: 10 x seed

So it will look like this:

Seed #1- Team A
Seed #2- Team B
Seed #3- Team C
all the way down to 16

1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes.

Contest #2- Pick your sweet 16 teams. Bonus $$$ for poster who has the most teams in the sweet 16.
If there is a tie between posters, it will be decided during the final 4.
To make it easy for grading, let's do it by region:

Sweet 16:
East- 4 teams
West- 4 teams
South- 4 teams
Midwest- 4 teams

Contest #3- Pick your Final 4.
$25 bonus for correctly picking the Final 4

Contest #4- Pick the poster who you think will win contest #1
$25 bonus for picking the poster who wins that contest.

Good Luck guys!

Jammer, may I invite SKINNY to participate in SVBETTOR's spot?

SKINNY is one of the most respected college hoop handicappers in Las Vegas and he lets his betting do the talking.

Modest as can be.

Jammer, I appreciate the invite, but right now I'm dealing with a health issue and I'm not really focused on the tournament, you can give my spot to someone else. Thanks again and GL to all the participants.
