Streak Survivor > brakson and monthly contest weird facts. > View Post
I didn`t understand wky Brackson was such in a hurry and pick the first in the last 3 days. He could have waited for the plays of the other guys behind him and this way he would probably have won the $1000 for the monthly leaderboard.

$1000 is a nice cash fellows!

On the other hand, let` take a brief and appreciate how fair-play he was these last days.

I will remember this month forever, that incredible streak started on the first day of the year with one game picked each day, the crazyness shared by a lot of guys around here after he has won $25k, the game for $100k that was postponed because of the mother nature who was thought to be much frightfully than it was, the incredible game between Bulls and Warriors and the last hopes from the end when the game was pushed in the overtime period, but unfortunately nothing miraculous has happened. Awesome!

Uuu, bad scenario. He picked Eastern Illinois -3,5 and they put just 3 points ahead.

Pretty unlucky, but congrats for the $1000!

Brakson congrats on your fascinating streak! You kept me awake for so many nights,I`m 6000 miles away from the States, 7-9 hours difference between my Time zone and yours. I`m a big fan of the american sports and a big fan of this contest, and recently, a big fan of yours!

You were really tough during this streak, you made everytime the right choice, but unfortunately GS W stopped you from winning the Grand Prize. It happens. We will never know if Portland was able to cover @ Nets, we will never know if something was not wrong about the game you chose. I mean, 0-13 3pts and missing a lot of free throws for the best team in the West Conf, this is obviously something to put under question. I don`t know how much money was beyond this game, but when the line is moving with 2 - 2,5 pts, you should speak about some important $$$.


You were incredible, now just focus on the monthly 1k prize and then enjoy your trip with your wife in Peru! Send us a postcard from MachuPichu , I heard that`s really amazing there.

All the best from Europe,

Alex.

Streak Survivor > Big mistake for Drew23 (4th in the monthly leaderboard) yesterday! > View Post
I didn`t understand why the user Drew23 who is in the top5 of the monthly win leaders picked a game yesterday afternoon that is playing hardly today. He was 3W behind Brackson, but Brackson had a "push" yesterday at Brooklyn`s game. Why to lose a day and to take Detroit -130 when your streak is already 0? I am very sure his pick was made yesterday because I was already following the monthly leaderboard for a couple of days (I mean the guys from the top 5)

Can`t understand his decision.

Streak Survivor > Is this monthly or continuing? > View Post
Correct. The streak reset only when you don`t pick at least one game for a period of 7 days. That`s the only concern. Good luck!

It doesn`t reset. You can play for free but read the rules first.

This could be realistic, but your choices are not random. It could be edge in any choice you make, so that impressive total odd is probably significantly lower. You can have edge on the games, that`s what I am saying. Nobody can confirm that the odds settled by bookies are the correct ones for each game.

Showing respect to Brackson, I am not going to start a "fight" here with u because I just don`t want to spoil his topic with bullshits.

My nickname is coming from Bill Madlock, a great baseball player during the `70s and `80s. In the moment I created my account on Covers, I read some stuff about him, no better inspiration then, hence my nickname.

So keep calm, wasn`t necessary to insult me just because of my observation.

Do you know what's hilarious guys? Most of the guys around here didn`t reach a #13 winning streak, didn`t win a $40 hoodie, but they put the problem if Covers will pay $25k or $100k.

Is there someone who didn`t receive the money? No. Did Tuppy receive the money? Yes. Did the other 3 or 4 guys receive the $25k? Yes. Did the guys with #17 receive their grand? Yes. The guys from the monthly leaderboard? Yes.

Then what we are talking about guys? Let`s give the Covers some credit, it seems to me they are a pretty solid company, they have the financial power to pay $100k and not once. Twice, three times or how many times is necessary. When they will not be able to pay the winners, probably the contests will stop running for a while.

Now Gl Brackson in the last quarter, 2 more points for the Hawks  and you are one step closer to that impressive $100k.

Probably no chance for the future to see football or tennis. The contest is 100% focused on the american games and this is understandable.

Streak Survivor > Is this contest for US citizens only?? > View Post
Anyone around the world can play the contests on Convers. For the prize money you need a paypal account, but unfortunately you can`t win hats and hoodies because the shipping works only in USA and Canada.

I have won 4 or 5 hats til now, but didn`t receive them. I come from Europe.

Still fighting for cash.

Good luck!

Amazing run Brackson! Respect!

P.S: Westud, don`t think it`s a good idea to cover now, maybe after he shoots the next game, to be one step away from 25k. Maybe then hedging.
