Yeah it'd be super easy for me to do it since my league uploads to league secretary, but I bowl saturday nights and it's not updated until the following wednesday or so. I believe scores have to be in and verified by Monday morning.

Sharno, if you're constantly improving you should do great. I know someone that puts something like $150 in it each week. I think he enters in for both of his leagues, and does the eliminator and 10 brackets for each. Some people put more money in brackets because they bowl so well the odds of winning or at least placing are good.

well our tourney for this week just started and i can finally see what i im up against avg wise and im confused cuz some of these people have high avgs from the previous seasons (i cant see this seasons avg til they post their scores) a few of them are over 200 and a few more over 175 and 180. this worries me since these guys will probably bowl way better than me, i read that if you are in the wrong division then they will move you into the right division but why would those people even join the lower div than they need?

anyone know anything about this situation?

Well, just one time that I can think of they got $170+ back one time. So the return isn't that good unless you do quite well. I think he told me once that there's some people that put in $500 per week or something. It's quite the gamble when you do that but I guess if you're really good and/or you bowl in a high scoring house it can pay off.

I just looked in your division(169 and under) for this week and there's no one there that's not supposed to be. It's probably too early to tell, but your odds of cashing definitely seem good if you shoot around 500. You get 43 pins of handicap if your average is 153.

im not sure if you looked at the right one, the one i joined was the one with 25 people in it. and theres some guys on there with a previous league avg of 200+ and some with 175+ now i know that is the previous years avg but i did find at least one of them in a different tourney and he shot like a 660 scratch, so that makes me nervous lol

after looking through the past tourneys i am pretty sure those people i mentioned will get bumped up to the next division because i dont see any of them in past <169 tourneys but i do see them in the 170 -199 so i think ill be ok and have a good chance.

I did one of the free ones they were running over the summer a couple years ago and won a free spot in one. I used that like a year later, got like 23 back, did another a year after that and got like 25 back. So as of right now I'm at like 31.58. Just debating on when I'll do it again.

I also bowl with the number 5 and number 11 all time winners in money for Virtual Tournaments

Oh yeah, I was looking at the wrong one. I was looking at the End column thinking that was when the week started, so I was looking at last week.

I do see some people there with averages that are too high for them to be in that division. So they will just get moved to the appropriate one when the admins catch it.

yeah the numbers are already going down we started at 25 and now its 23 so 2 got bumped so far and im sure more will, unfortunately the pot will go down and probably only 3 or 2 will cash, theres a guy on there that bowled a 582 which is something i have never bowled but my handicap hopefully will help me smile

Yeah you pretty much have to bowl over average, that's how most of the people who do well get their money.
