Redemption Island Challenge #2 – The Ultimate Survivor Sportsbook

Each Redemption Island inhabitant will use the Survivor Sportsbook to make a series of bets on Saturday’s sporting events (and there are a wide variety of them!). The contestant who ends up with the most money will return to the game. Everybody else will be officially eliminated. Players who are on the main island are more than welcome to play along for fun…if you submit your picks to survivorxii, I will post them.

The Basics:
-Everybody has \$1,000 to bet. Any money that does not get spent will be lost, so bet it all!
-The minimum for each bet is \$50. After that, all bets must be made in increments of \$10. (So you can bet \$50, \$60, \$70…)
-The maximum for one bet is \$300.
-If a sporting event is postponed, the wager will be returned but no additional money will be won.
-Hedge bets (betting on multiple outcomes for the same sporting event) are NOT allowed, except for NASCAR.  For the NASCAR race, each player can bet on a maximum of 3 different drivers.

Bet Types:
-All bets are based on a MONEY LINE. The number in (parenthesis) is the amount of money that would be won on a \$10 wager. So if you wager \$50, multiply the number in parenthesis by 5.
Example 1: I bet \$200 on Everton (5). The (5) means that I win \$5 for every \$10 wagered. If Everton is victorious, then I would win \$100 (20 x \$5) and the \$200 wager would be returned to me…so I would end up with \$300.
Example 2: I bet \$120 on Draw (32). If the game ends in a draw, then I would win \$384 (12 x \$32) and the \$120 wager would be returned…so I would end up with \$504.

Tie-breakers:
TB1: most bets WON
TB2: most bets MADE
If there is still at tie, we will have a small tie-breaker challenge on Sunday!

Submitting Picks:
-If you are betting on any EPL soccer games, ALL of your bets for the day must be sent to survivorxii by 10am EST.
-Otherwise, your bets must be submitted to survivorxii by 2pm EST.
-Make sure to clearly identify the sport, team, and amount being wagered (Ex: NBA – Chicago Bulls - \$110).

Just in case I am voted off tonight, or if there was a tie vote, should I be preparing for this challenge then? Or is redemption not an option for this vote?

Ps: jagrmeister has kicked in.

Whoever gets voted out must participate in the redemption challenge.  If there is a tie, we would need a re-vote and wouldn't know the eliminated player until after the redemption challenge started...so they would not participate and would be the first member of the next redemption island group.

We have a tie!

By the rules of Survivor, there will be a re-vote. Please read the following carefully:
-psap and mb625 will NOT vote
-the other 4 members (ahrens, polabonez, sjurat, and tsut30) will each vote again…they MUST vote for either psap or mb625.
-if there is another tie in the re-vote, psap and mb625 will be SAFE. Ahrens, polabonez, sjurat, and tsut30 would then compete in a small “fire-building” challenge on Sunday. The loser of this challenge would be sent to Redemption Island.

The re-votes must be submitted to survivorxii by 5pm EST tomorrow (Saturday). Since the Redemption Island challenge is tomorrow, the eliminated player will not participate. He will be the first member of the third and FINAL Redemption Island group.
