Last (World Cup) Punter Standing with GGGaming

I was thinking of ideas for a World Cup competition and came across this old thread “Last Punter Standing” dating back to 2013 www.goodforthegame.co.za/index.php?optio...&id=34376&Itemid=767

Let’s have another go for the World Cup – I will confirm the prize by the end of the weekend and we can start on Monday with the Brazil v Mexico game. Update: GGGaming putting up a R1000 free bet for the winner

Format
• Each punter starts with R1000 virtual money
• Each punter bets his entire balance of R1000 on a World Cup bet in the 5th last 16 game (Brazil v Mexico)
• Odds must not be shorter than 5/10 or bigger than 5/1 (this applies throughout the competition)
• Those punters that survive the 1st match move onto the 2nd (Belgium v Japan) and once again the entire balance is staked on a single World Cup bet
• You hit your bet you move onto the next match, you lose you are out.

How do you win?
There are 2 ways to win
1. You have the highest balance at the end of 11 matches (we will end with the final but skip the 3rd place playoff)
3. Everyone else is out and you are the last one standing (if there is no one left standing highest balance heading into that match wins)

To enter simply place your opening bet on this thread for example

Match 1: Brazil v Mexico Brazil win at 5/10 GGGaming R500/R1000

Rules
• Bets must be placed before kickoff of each match
• No in running bets accepted, all bets must be placed prior to kickoff of a match
Price must be available at GGGaming at the time of placing the bet
• Winning bets to be rounded down to the nearest R10
• Players to calculate their own balances and carry them through
• Non SA players welcome although you will need a GGGaming account to collect the prize
• Players must be on every game so will need to wait or the 1st game of a day to finish before putting the balance on the next game. Miss a game and you are out

- Single bets only, no multiples
- Threads may not be edited other than to add info which was left off, prices may not be changed and once placed a bet is final, no edits at all after kickoff of a game

Prize
The title of “Last Punter Standing” and a prize from GGGaming to be confirmed. Update - GGGaming have put up a R1000 free bet

Guys there is not much time between games so if you think you may not be able to get on to re-invest you can put bets down for both games assuming you win the 1st

e.g Match 1 Brazil win at 5/10 R500/1000

Match 2: Handicap Belgium -1 at 11/10 1650/1500 (not my actual entry)

Slim pickings in the GGGaming markets. No corners, bookings, scorers, assists etc. Not even Mackems pick which I do like 2-3 goals. I think we get 2 to 3 rounds of this competition over the remaining 11 games as I can't see more then a single contender making it past Colombia v England in round one.
Brazil v Mexico
Half with the most goals 2nd @ evens

Ruan Experienced Novice (leader), RuggaBugga, Roger Rabbit, BG Mackem Eduard, Vann

Wow Vann would have won it were it not for that late winner for Belgium

I think it is Ruan R3300, myself R3300 and Vann R3460 to fight it out

Aahhh Ruan thanks for trying mate - really appreciate it

I had a crazy afternoon at the office and when I looked at the time it was 1615 - very disappointed as was loving the challenge

Well done Ruan you are a well deserved winner - do you have a GGGaming account?

For the record I would have gone Uruguay plus the draw at around the 8/10 mark I think

Sorry that you didn't make it. But I'm glad to see that your bet would have been wrong too. At least it looks like it's going to be.

I wish I bet real money instead of all these fake ones. Have never bet on soccer before in my life.

But a R1000 betting voucher is great! I will quickly create an account at GGGaming and will email you the details.

Thanks for the competition! I hope we see more of these.
