Instructions:
Pick team(s) to win on each day of the tournament. Once you pick a team, you can no longer pick that team for the remainder of the tournament. You can submit your picks daily
.
Pick two (2) teams to win on Day 1 (March 19).
If both Day 1 teams win -> Pick two (2) more teams to win on Day 2 (March 20).
If any Day 1 team loses -> You can buy-back in for $10 but must pick four (4) more teams to win on Day 2.
If your Day 2 teams win -> Pick one (1) more team to win on Day 3 (March 21).
If any Day 2 team loses -> You can buy-back in for $10 but must pick five (5) more teams to win on Day 3.
If your Day 3 team(s) win(s) -> Pick one (1) more team to win on Day 4 (March 22).
If any Day 3 team loses -> You can buy-back in for $10 but must pick six (6) more teams to win on Day 4. People do this every year. I'm not sure why.
If your Day 4 team(s) wins(s) -> Pick one (1) team for each of the remaining days of the tournament.

Other Commentary:
No more buy-backs after the first weekend.
If you pick U$C and you lose, you deserve it.
If you run out of teams, you lose. However, you will still survive that day if nobody beats you with a win.
Winner takes all. (Except if there is a tie, we'll split the pot evenly.)
