I am In.. Couple thoughts-(To the best of my knowledge) Paypal fees will probably eat up close to one share of the pool or at least 50% of an entry and I believe this is something that just has to be accepted.You can send and recieve a "gift" from others w/o fees,but when someone receives 10 /$60 gifts in a week it will raise flags...I think it better to just pay for goods in personal and NO ONE should mention "pool" or anything gambling related in the message field or that could be unwanted trouble...Better off to play it safe and pay the fees.and it's getting a bit close to the point to send checks or money orders to clear,all the PM'S to send etc.
Any monies paid out may have to be treated the same way and treated like an additional tax.They grab about 3%,but the option of Handikapper just sending a personal check is there,probably the best route.
Another thing I'm wondering about- What price of a winner do we need to make a profit,say even one or two 10-1 get up for 23 or is it all based on the place and show (and Fourth in super) Are we set in stone yet about just picking 4 consensus up top?
As someone else posted,I'll probably sit back and let the real cappers make the picks,I may chime in on a 4th play if a position is open..
Here is a link for a wager calculator that's a fast way to get the cost of complex bets if anyone is interested..
