SN NFL Survivor Pool 2023 Rules/Details BUY IN: 10,000 sats sent to @nflsurvivor2023 by Sept 4th. Buy in will be open starting tomorrow. I will make a post specifically for buy in. When you send your buy in, please reply to the post to advise me its sent, so I know who it came from. RULES: -Each week every player still in the game will review the week's games schedule and pick one team to win straight up (spread doesn't matter). If the team you selected that week loses, you are eliminated. If the team you selected wins, you move on to the next week. -You can only select a team one time. (i.e if you select the Chiefs in Week 1 you cannot use them again) -Last player standing wins the entire prize pool. -If you are eliminated, there will be one opportunity per player to buy back into the pool (also 10,000 sats) up until week 9. There will be no re-buys permitted after week 9. If eliminated and you wish to buy back in, you must submit your re-buy payment and pick in time for the upcoming week's selection deadline. Reminder a team cannot be selected more than once (if you lose with the Chiefs in week 1 in a big upset and choose to re-buy, the chiefs are still off the board for you). ADMIN and DEADLINES -A list of games for the upcoming week's schedule, along with a list of remaining players, their available re-buys, and the teams they are restricted from picking will be posted on Tuesdays (hopefully by 12pm est but give me a bit of flexibility on this one). -Pick Submission Deadline will be as follows: a) Thursday 6pm est for players picking a team that is playing in the Thursday night game. b) Sunday 12am est for players picking teams from the Sunday slate of games. c) Saturday 12am est for players picking teams from the Saturday slate of games. (Saturday games only start in week 15 so unlikely we get that far without a winner but just in case) FYI there are games being played in Europe starting in Week 4. These games start at 9:30am est so please stick to the Sunday 12am est deadline to avoid Sunday morning chaos. TIEBREAKERS -If the final 2 or more players are eliminated on the same week and we are out of re-buys or past the re-buy cut off of Week 9, the winner will be decided by point differential from that week's games. Whichever player's team lost by the smallest margin will be deemed the winner. -If we still have a tie after point differential (teams lost by the same amount or players selected the same losing team that week), we will go to a playoff between tied participants for the upcoming week of games. If that week ends in a tie (both win or both lose), we will go to the point differential tiebreaker again to determine a winner. If still tied we will go to another playoff week until we have a clear winner. -In the unlikely event a game is cancelled and not rescheduled prior to the upcoming week's slate of games any players who selected teams in the cancelled game will be carried forward to the next week where they will need to pick 2 winners to move on. Unless carrying them forward causes them to win the pool, at which point they will need to pick 1 game to win and we will revert to tiebreaker rules if they lose that game. WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER -Once we have a clear winner, this Survivor Pool account will post an announcement on the Tuesday following the 'winning weekend', announcing the winner, and total prize pool they earned. -The winner will reply to the post "I Survived the 2023 SN NFL Survivor Pool and all I got were these Awesome Sats" or with whatever victory trash talk they wish to reply with. -The survivor account will then zap their comment the entire prize pool (so everyone can verify) and ride off into the sunset. -END-

@grayruby I think I found a loophole in the rules. What happens if I don't pick any team? lol

Fuck around and find out.
Just kidding. I will make sure to add that to the rules next year. I am sure the other players will appreciate your donation.

The full rules will be posted tomorrow but the basic idea is 10k sats to buy in, winner takes all. Every week we pick one team to win. If they lose you are out and if they win you move on. Catch is you can only use a team once. There will be an option to buy back in once if you lose up until a certain point in the schedule. That will be explained in the rules release tomorrow.
Please check out my post tomorrow and then let me know if you want to participate.
Cheers, GR

Are you able to sticky post the rules and any pool related information to this accounts bio? Just for ease of finding stuff again?
