    The ACC tourney is part of the current contest, Jason, judging by the end date of 3/13/2018.

    Yes we will... more time for the rest of us to embark on the futile quest to catch you!
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    14 more games left in the contest. 28 potential wagers. Anyone in the top 8 can still realistically win this thing with so many wagers and a 500 unit max.

    rasputinDBR has placed a leading 258 wagers. Impressive. Trouble had an outstanding week.

    Let's Play!

    I fell from 2nd place to 3rd place the last couple of days of the regular season so now I need to catch Troublemaker in addition to NYBri.

    This wagering contest is great. Last year, I performed pretty well through the whole season (until the ACC tournament when I abandoned my strategy for a last ditch effort to go from second to first). Part of me was thinking: "oh, I must be naturally gifted at this, if I ever end up in Vegas, I should spend some time at the sports books."

    This season has been the good reminder that last season wasn't a great sample size, and I just got really lucky quite a few times. That part of me that thought I was good at this has been mercifully killed.

    That being said - still going for broke through the ACC tourney, since I haven't had time to make many wagers this season.

    I had a couple of good weeks early on, but have struggled of late and dropped to the bottom of the pack. At this point I'm just playing for next year.

    I went 1-0 yesterday and am back in 2nd place. Today I intend to be more active placing wagers.

    Raise your hand if you were an idiot and bet on State.

    Oof, UVa is going to hit the over with more than 3min remaining. That may be unprecedented since Handsome Tony arrived in Cville.

    small sample size, of course, but placing nothing but gut-check max bets has been good to me this week.

    Three games left. I've reset the goalposts for myself - I just want to get out of the bottom 5.

    Congrats on your victory, NYBri!

    Just complete domination, as it was for you during last year's ACC season, as I recall.

    Many thanks, Trouble. There is not a single thought in my head that there is any real skill involved in this. Just a bunch of guesses on top of hunches. More than a few after a couple of craft IPAs, I might add.
