    Default Couple idea's after this Leaderboard is over

    I like having the leaderboard, it rewards the constant weekly players let alone the good ones..A bit more stradgy over just going all in when u know there is a grand prize at the end.

    We have one week left before this leaderboard is over..So i need to decide am i gonna run with another leaderboard or just go back to the regular weekly tourney..I prefer to run with another leaderboard, if i do though to be eligible for it i'm just gonna ask for alittle more partcipation at EOG from everyone or a small deposit into Bookmaker that will be yours to play with..

    My idea's to be eligible

    1. Require daily picks being posted, remember we are all here for one reason, to beat the book, work as a team and make money..No reason not to share the plays you are playing on a daily basis..

    2. Make a deposit of $100 into Bookmaker that will be yours to do as you please (even if you have money in there, you will see be required to make another or post plays daily)


    If we get 10 people eligible for the leaderboard than so be it, the rest wont be eligible for the end of the leaderbaord prizes and will just be playing for the weekly prize..

    Thoughts?

    Nothing wrong with the $100-200 deposit. Everyone can afford that amount for the leaderboard. maybe take a slightly bigger portion out of each weeks pool for the leaderboard as well

    i am not going to send money in to any book in this environment where the feds are shutting people down. but mainly because i have a nice bankroll from when i sent in 500 a couple years back to bookmaker. i need to pull some out if anything. but i will posts some picks here and there but dont bet them lol. wouldnt mind a leaderboard or back to the weekly game, doesnt matter to me. lots of fun playing against you guys. i mainly play poker now from a few years back. started as an average handicapper and still am one

    Depositing $100 is cool! BM has been very genorous with the weekly tourny and freeplay purses. Posting a pick or two a week is very easy too, so I feel both ideas wouldn't be asking alot from participants for another leaderboard contest.

    my exact thoughts, Bookmaker has been extremely generous with this tourney, and one of the most safest solid books out there, throwing some cash their way that u get to play with as u wanted wouldnt hurt to say thank you

    I would prefer posting a daily pick, but will do whatever the consensus is. I give bookmaker a ton of action in the pokerroom in rake, although I really would have no room to complain if we were required to make a deposit, like previously stated Bookmaker has been more than generous with these tournies...would probably cut the field down by 50% MINIMUM as well...I like the leaderboard, but would be fine without it as well, I'll do whatever the consensus wants on this issue as well

    I don't mind sending Bookmaker another $100.

    I don't mind posting plays...especially come football season.

    I like having the leaderboard as long as the weekly hold-out remains the same.

    I'm easy going, so whatever ya'll guys decide, I'll go along with.

    It might be easier to to get a player consensus by posting a poll, but only the poker players votes would be tabulated. (No sense voting if your not going to play in the tourney.)

    I will have picks come cfb. I also give BM lots of action through the cash games I play, as well as tourneys. I use to post across the street but want to contribute here instead. I feel a sense of loyalty due to the fact of bookmaker and the eog being very generous with the freeplays. I do like the leaderboard very much.

    I find out the rules and then I play the game. I am a poker player, not much of a sportsbettor. I might be the person to fade if I start posting my picks. I enjoy college hoops betting most. I try to give back to forums that have helped me. This forum I definitely am on the owe side of things.

    we shouldn't have to deposit if we have money there it is just a waste of time and money for both parties

    I already have $300 on BM, pretty satisfied with them. If I deposit another $100 there, and the same things happens to BM as BJ, then it gets annoying. Almost time to stick with a local book. All my sportsbooks have charged me an arm and a leg at withdrawal time. Whereas my poker sites give free withdrawals.

    I like the idea of posters helping posters win. Maybe everyone could post at least 5 top plays of the week with at least a brief reason why you think so.
