    Entry Fee: $20 per entry, 3 for $50

    GROUP STAGE
    -Each day of the Group Stage, you must pick a team to WIN its game. There are 14 days, as June 14 & 15 will be combined into one contest day
    -You cannot pick the same team twice in the group stage
    -You can pick ties and there is no limit on how many ties you can pick
    -You start the contest with 4 PELOTAS. If your team wins, you keep your pelotas. If your team loses, you lose 2 pelotas. If your team ties, you lose 1 pelota. If you pick a tie and it’s not a tie, you lose 2 pelotas.

    BUYBACKS
    -After each day of the group stage, you can buyback pelotas. They will start at $10 for one on Day 1 and increase $7 per day throughout the Group Stage, ending with $101 per pelota on Day 14. Reminder that this is per pelota, so if you lose and want to buy back both pelotas, you will have to pay twice.
    -You must have at least 1 pelota remaining to advance to the next day. If you have zero pelotas and do not buyback, that entry is eliminated.

    KNOCKOUT STAGE
    -You must pick one team to advance for each day of the KO Stage (9 days + Third Place Game). Ties do not matter at this stage, winners only, even if through extra time or penalty kicks.
    -You cannot pick a team more than 3 times in the KO round
    -There are no buybacks during the KO stage, however prior to this, you can trade in your pelotas for goalies. 2 pelotas = 1 goalie. 4 pelotas = 2 goalie. If you only have 1 pelota, you will receive no goalies unless you buy the extra pelota prior to the KO stage.
    -If your team wins, you will advance to the next day. If your team loses and you have a goalie, that will be used to “save” you and advance you to the next day. If you have no goalies remaining and your pick loses, your entry is eliminated.

    PICKS DEADLINE

    Picks are due at Midnight ET prior to the game’s day. Especially with games starting as early at 6AMET, this deadline will be enforced. If no pick is received, your entry will be graded as a loss (loss of 2 pelotas in Group Stage, loss of goalie in KO Stage). An e-mail will follow with a spreadsheet of all that day’s picks. You must verify your picks for any errors. If the error is my fault, I will correct it prior to 9AM. If there is a disputed game that has ended prior to the 9AM deadline, proof of pick will be required for the pool to see. After 9AM, the SPREADSHEET BECOMES FINAL, and any errors that might exist will stand, regardless of who made the error. If such an error results in your having a duplicate pick, that entry will then be eliminated from the contest. No administration fees are taken out of the prize pool whatsoever. 100% of the prize is distributed to the winner(s) at the conclusion of the contest.


    Please do not mention Survivor contests in the memo notes. Emojis are OK for Venmo. For PP, leave blank. If you use Venmo, I must first add you as a friend before sending your entry fees.

    Just updating this thread. As of now, there are 34 entries for $540. With a week to go and buybacks, this prize should probably push close to $2k.
