    BTP Championship: Will Sportsfun hold on?

    In the final week of what has been a roller coaster season, can SBRforum poster sportsfun hang on and claim the 2011 Beat The Prick crown?

    Rank Name Record Units
    1 sportsfun 36-16 29.5
    2 Gruntworker 34-18-2 26.1
    3 mrmarket 35-18-3 23.05
    4 xxplosive 34-17-5 21.9
    5 jpowderly 34-21-1 20.8

    Sitting at 36-13 +29.50, sportsfun has won nearly 74% of his picks ATS. Whether it's a rabbit's foot, crystal ball or magical card like in Last Action Hero contributing to his run remains to be seen. Sportsfun has been simply dominant throughout the contest, turning in a Floyd Mayweather like performance from week to week. The forum veteran has been at it since 2005.

    Will Sportsfun make more picks to attempt to create separation from those below him who are in striking distance? Will he roll the dice? Will he wait to see if one of his fellow handicappers picks themselves out of contention on a game that takes place before Sunday?

    Whether Sportsfun manages to cross the finish line remains to be seen, but this is certainly one of the most awe-inspiring contest performances in SBR history.

    Hey Lou,

    Again, thanks for the contest! Would it be possible to give us a top 20 of SBR Pros who are qualified to receive year end prizes? I only have 4 people in the overall top 10 that qualify as far as I can see. It would help alot in the decision making process.

    I haven't ruled out making a run at Sportsfun, but I think my 1-3 performance 2 weeks ago pretty much killed it for me. I think I'm in 2nd right now, but it would be nice to confirm the standings as I see them.

    Thanks again SBR! This contest has been awesome!

    Edit by SBR Lou: We updated the listed top 5 with the eligible top 5. We can't help you strategize. Just do a search for any of the posters you aren't sure about.

    What happens to those top 10 finishers that aren't SBR pro's? Do they qualify for a cash prize? What about the other top 10 what happens to the rest of the prize pool is it split amongst them?

    I would bet sportsfun to place in this spot. Their will be plenty of heart beats this weekend for all the players. Advice as I've placed in this contest before. Act last if possible, play to win. G.L. one and all.

    Thanks to SBR for a great contest!

    I know this is a little presumptuous of me, but what is the payout method going to be Lou? I would enjoy a Sports book Cash deposit

    Lou mentions sportsfun's results thus far as being amongst the "most awe-inspiring contest performances in SBR history." Just out of curiosity does anyone have historical percentages for the winners of BTP?

  10. #10

    Wow, I hope this guy was betting his picks too. 73 percent is insane. Nice job man.

  11. #11

    Great Job to sportsfun on that %,too all the winners also!
    Great Contest and thanks Lou!

    I hit 66% and I haven't hit the top20. I forgot about the contest a couple weeks and only submitted a few picks those weeks. Still Id like to know where I placed among the sbr pros in this contest.

    Non Pros don't qualify for a cash prize. They get removed from the final standings and everyone gets bumped up.

    Lou,

    When I checked some names of contenders, I had Presley177 as a non-Pro.
    That's because I happened to see in week 10 he didn't get the double points.

    I see he is a Pro now. But according to the rules one had to Become a Pro by the 4th week ---Oct 2.

    Checking his point history, we see he became a Pro on 11/22 and looking back further, it wasn't a renewal/grace period thing.

    He should not be eligible. Sorry Presley, but as a contender I have to blow the whistle.

    Little bit classless there. If you'd look on the beat of the pick main page I even posted about not being a pro before the date. Congrats though.

    Correct, he was multiple weeks late. The contest is still running - once it's finally over, we'll be posting an official moneyboard after all users have been vetted for their eligibility.

    Sorry you think it's classless. Forgive me for not reading the comments on the BTP main page.

    Too bad you didn't see this thread before I noticed your name among the top 5 pros in the top post. You could have said you weren't eligible here in this thread and saved me the trouble of asking for a correction to the list. I thought it was important for all contenders to see exactly where they stood with respect to the top 5 list that Lou posted -- and which has since been corrected.

    I just think a simple email would have sufficed. Obviously I'm pissed that I won't get anything but just seeing that was like fuel to the fire to top it off. Good luck

    I thought SBR staff was not allowed to utilize points. What are you doing playing in the casino

    agree with you presley, and not just because elvis is my favorite singer/actor of all time.
    i never liked a tattletale, maybe if he was right behind you for $2500 it might make sense, and even then it should be handled with a pm to lou.

    You can still win, then maybe think about paying back the points you stole from DNGF. Just a thought.
