The Gamblers and the Lobsters 2020 - 21

I have searched my soul and found the will to run this competition for another season. Lets hope it doesn't get as chaotic as last season. A reminder of some of the rules that may be applied in a haphazard manner:

Everyone starts with 200

Max bet 20%; final round 50%

Min bet 5

No bet = AutoBet (5 on the shortest priced option)

5 AutoBets per person then 5% penalty

Those 5% penalties redistributed to bottom gamblers

Winner selects following week's games (I may consider introducing penalties for winners who forget to set the following weeks games. Be warned.)

Late entry fee - 5 per week

Starts week next Saturday, 12th September.

Vendy, I'll have a go at the initial set up of the spreadsheet, but I may need your help when it goes all Nottingham Forest shaped.

Sign up if you want to join the most exclusive gambling club on the internet, and see if you can wrest the sash from Kiwi's rather shapely shoulders.
