On to our second of three semifinals. Will our players wager properly today?
I had a nice week “off” from my normal duties, thanks to last week’s wild cards. Let’s see how our first three semifinalists fare in the winner-take-all format!
We’ve reached the end of the first week! We now know our field for the semis.
This scenario comes from the 2008 College Championship. The yellow scores are the totals from Game 1, which will be added to the totals from the present game. What should each player wager?
Thanks to wjmorris3 for pointing out that players keep whatever they win, subject to a minimum. The guarantees here were $100k for the champion, $50k for second, and $25k for third.
If you’re unsure how to approach this, fear not – I’ll explain it to you soon!
We’ll jump from three semifinalists to six tonight – two of the wild cards will claim their spots.
We’ll be over the hump after tonight’s game – and we’ll have our first two eliminated players. Who will they be?
And we’re off with our first tournament of the year! Not too much analysis this week, I predict.
