  • The Championships Big Kahunas Comp ENTRY THREAD

    (Please note, have discussed this with John, about any misgivings he may have had with a 1 day comp running alongside the WC Comp)

    1 day only, Sat 13 at Randwick
    You have an imaginary $100K to spend
    Entries close at start of R1
    Anything goes, all TAB bet types, will use NZ TAB tote prices, but also for Win/Place you can use NZ TAB FF prices, but they must be stated at the time of your entry.
    You must have 1 bet to be a valid entry, so could effectively put $1 to win on Winx, and sit on the rest
    You can put the whole $100k to win on Winx if you want
    Winner is the one with the highest balance at the end of R10
    Prize - $200

    Have tried to make it as real world as possible, as though you were sitting at home with $100K to spend. The only difference, is that, for workability, entries must close at the start of R1, so that means any late scratchings get credited back to your balance as per TAB rules.
    You can replace normal scratchings up until the start of R1

    One final thing, try to limit the number of bets you have, someone has to score this

    Good luck, crazy idea, let's see if it works

    Happy to change any of the format, if anyone points out a better way or any flaws

        Hesi...a $10 spend would achieve the same result and limit the number of bets
        I like to bet $3/$7......how would you like some $30,000/ $70,000 bets to test your calculator.
        Bet size or limits not shown ??

          No limits, up to the extent of your total starting stake
          The large stake allows for any exotics posters to multi up fields in things like quaddies, trifectas and F4's, bearing in mind they might get back a lot less than what they out layed.
          Might be creating a bit of a rod for my own back, but what the hell, let's see what eventuates

            Have a go anyway Brian, you won the last $200 comp and were so unlucky with your timing on Nicoletta

                  Nice comp Hesi and very generous prize - cheers.

                  Only possible flaw (if you can call it that) is allowing FF prices. Unless you're monitoring every entry as it is posted you will have no way of knowing whether the price quoted was the price at the time the bet was notified. Further, you have the issue of final field deductions - this is particularly pronounced with bets placed prior on say Thursday or Friday which are impacted by regular Saturday scratchings - you won't know what the deductions are.

                  I'd recommend you stick to tote prices, but happy to go with the flow.

                      Just make sure you replace any scratchings Brian, it is beyond my skills to work out what any refunds would be

                        Thanks John, would prefer to leave in the FF option to attract some of the 'hardcore'(that's you Barry)
                        I think they are all a pretty honest lot, and someone is always 'observing'
                        If someone doesn't post the deductions, then I will have to ring up the TAB and get them

                          I'm assuming Brian has taken $1,000 box quinellas with the five horses - 10 combinations x $1,000 = $10k

                          If one horse is scratched he is left with a box 4 quinella - 6 combinations x $1,000 = $6k => $4k refund
                          If two horses are scratched => $7k refund
                          Three scratchings => $9k refund
