Any appetite for this? Tenner in a head via PayPal winner takes all. Any suggestions for how it could work? I'd be happy to have a go at running it but any volunteers considered.

Surely the same way as your one with Caveman but fuck the "only singles" off.

 

Start with 50 quid. One bet a weekend. Singles, doubles whatever the fuck you want. 20 team acca if you want.

 

Odds of your bet must be at least 8/15 or bet is void.

 

Last man (or woman/queer/trans/bumder to keep Parklife happy), standing wins.

Sounds good. Only one buy back allowed.

 

Bet not mandatory on Sunday if you’ve bet on Saturday and likewise bet not mandatory on Saturday if you’ve bet on Sunday but must have minimum one bet per weekend.

 

Failure to place a bet over weekend forfeits £10 from your total

Why restrict the odds?

 

Surely the comp is about who makes the most money?

Yeah I'm coming round to unrestricted odds as well. Let everyone have their own method. Need to keep the odds to the same bookie though or it gets a bit messy keeping a check on it.

I'm thinking maybe a cyber£100 betting pot to be bet however you like. 100 x £1 bets or 1 x £100 bet. Run out you can buy back in for another tenner. Bet365 odds. Keep suggestions coming though or point out any pitfalls.

I'd probably partake in this.  

 

How about the following though:

 

- Penalty for not putting a bet on is a % of your pot (say 10%).

 

If someone builds up a big pot early on, a penalty for not betting of a fixed amount might not put them off betting.  

 

Also, feel that minimum odds should be considered.  If someone gets lucky with an accumulator early on, should they be allowed just to bet small amounts on certs?

Why not? And why would that be lucky?

 

Let's just see who the best is. Which means who makes the most over a whole season.

I'm thinking if somebody gets a big win early doors it's their perogative if they want to nest it and a challenge to the rest to surpass it.

Correct.

I’ll join. Keep it simple like others have said. 1 bet a week. 10 quid stake. Winner is the one with the largest profit at the end of the season.

 

Will take some upkeep though mantits.
