    FIRST OF ALL, LET ME START BY SAYING, SOME OF THE CRITICISM DIRECTED TOWARD BETWORKS WAS UNWARRANTED.....A LOT OF POSTERS FELT THE PRIZE THEY OFFERED WAS SMALL, BUT IN FACT, THAT IS WHAT THEY WERE ASKED TO PROVIDE, AND THEY SIMPLY AGREED......

    AT THE TIME, THE RX DIDNT KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD ACTUALLY JOIN UP IN THIS.....BUT SINCE WE NOW HAVE GOTTEN OVER 60 PLAYERS, AND GENERATED MUCH INTEREST, WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO INCREASE THE PRIZES....

    BEVERLY HILLS BOOKIE, HAS AGREED TO CO-SPONSOR WITH BETWORKS, THIS CONTEST.....BOTH BOOKS WILL BE OFFERING 250.00 ACCOUNTS TO THE WINNER, AND 150.00 ACCOUNTS TO THE RUNNER-UP.....AND TO MAKE IT MORE INTERESTING, BOTH BOOKS HAVE AGREED TO DOUBLE THEIR PRIZES FOR ANY PLAYER THAT IS A CURRENT PLAYER WITH THE BOOK BY JULY 15TH.

    FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS CONTEST, BEING A CURRENT PLAYER AT THE BOOK , WILL MEAN MAKING AT LEAST A 100.00 DEPOSIT, AND ROLLING IT OVER 1 TIME......NOT MUCH AT ALL...THIS IS A GOOD CHANCE TO TRY THESE NICE BOOKS OUT.....THEREFORE, IF U HAVE A CURRENT ACCOUNT AT THESE BOOKS BY JULY 15TH, YOU ARE NOW PLAYING FOR 2- 500.00 ACCOUNTS.....AND 2 300.00 ACCOUNTS FOR 2ND PLACE.....

    WE ARE CHANGING ONE RULE, DUE TO THE INCREASE IN PRIZES, THE PRIZES WILL GO TO THE TOP 2 FINISHERS IN TOTAL UNITS WON, IN THE FINAL 5....
    (NOT TO THE BEST RECORD)....WE WANT TO TEST THE PLAYERS' SKILLS IN WINNING, NOT JUST PICKING FAVORITES.)....AND AS WE SAID, ALL UNITS ARE RESET AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH NEW ROUND, SO JUST MAKE IT TO THE NEXT ROUND, AND YOUR CHANCE IS AS GOOD AS ANYONES....

    BETWORKS HAS ALREADY ANNOUNCED THE STIPULATIONS FOR THEIR PRIZES, AND THAT WILL STAY THE SAME...IF U WIN THE 500.00 ACCOUNT THERE, U WILL DEPOSIT 500.00, AND CAN WITHDRAW AS SOON AS YOUR ACCOUNT IS AT 2000.00......

    AS FAR AS BHB, THEY WILL HAVE A 4X ROLLOVER ON THEIR ACCOUNTS, WITHDRAWAL ANYTIME AFTER ROLLOVER IS MET.....

    SO COME ON GUYS, GIVE THESE BOOKS A SHOT, SOME OF US ALREADY PLAY THERE, BUT IF U DONT, GIVE THEM A TRY BEFORE JULY 15TH, SO YOU ARE PLAYING FOR 1000.00, INSTEAD OF 500.00

    THANKS TO BOTH BHB, AND BETWORKS, FOR CHIPPING IN PRIZES FOR OUR CONTEST....

    GL TO ALL WHO ARE ENTERED......

    Rules are simple:

    - Make 3 plays per night (Lines from Betworks. I will post the lines fromwww.betworks.com each day and we will use the lines I post.)

    - 3 rounds.
    > 1st round starts Tuesday June 24th and runs until and including the last day of July. The top 10 places will move on to the 2nd rd.
    > 2nd rd starts the first day of August and goes until and including the last day of August. The top 5 places after rd 2 will move on to the championship round.
    > Rd 3 - Championship round - Will start September 1st and go until the last game of the season.

    - Plays will work as follows. For favorites it will be risking whatever the line is to win 1 unit (100 dollars). Example: If you take Yankees -190 that means you are risking 190 dollars to win 100. For underdogs it will be Risking 100 to win whatever the line is. Example: Cubs +145 means you risk 100 to win 145.

    Deadline to post your plays will be 7:00 PM EST except on days when there are alot of day games. On those days the deadline will be 1:00 PM est. I will also be posting overnight lines from now on. Each day I will post the deadline time.
