Any interest in a $20 March Madness pool similar to the one in this thread (https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/ncaa-march-madness-pool-interest.87188/) from last year?
Looking to get some money in play so I have a rooting interest since my work this year only has a free pool for bragging rights.

If we get at least 10 people I can set it up and handle collecting money and payouts. Probably just using standard ESPN scoring since most people already have brackets/accounts there.
Reply with interest below.

***********************************************

We should have enough people. I'll be sending out PMs with payment info as I get time today.
Other details:
  • We will use the ESPN to track. Here's the group. Scoring rules on the site.
  • Group name is: "PCF All In 2023" | Password to join group is "all-in"
  • $20 per entry. As many entries as you want. FF welcome
  • All entries have to be in the "PCF All In 2023" group to count
  • Entries lock at the beginning of the first game on Thursday.
  • I will DM my PayPal and Venmo info by tomorrow evening to everyone who has expressed interest in this thread. When you pay, please only include PCF username and the name of the bracket you are paying for in the comments.
  • 80/20% prize split between 1st and 2nd place

IMPORTANT: Payment must be received by tip-off of first game on Thursday.
Entries not paid before tip-off will not count!

Is the ESPN site such that you can set up a private group and we can follow each other's progress? It's been a few years since I've been in one of these pools. I used to do them on Yahoo MANY years ago...

Yes it will be a private group and you will be able to see the brackets that you're competing against once it locks at the start of the tournament.

I will list entries and users and payment status in a chart in op.
 
First game that counts for the brackets isn't until Thursday at 12:15 EST so still plenty of time for people to join the fun!

Just over 1 day left for anyone who still wants to get in!

I have updated the OP with all brackets and payment I have received so far. If your bracket or payment isn't listed there then I haven't seen it yet.
 
Thanks. I created one real fast last night, but want to review it again. I'll send the payment tonight.
 
Payment sent.

I created a bracket last night and submitted it. Then tonight I opened it, tweaked it, and resubmitted. That's still just one bracket, right? Just confirming that I can make changes after the first submission. I still only see the one bracket in the group.
 
Chart of brackets and payments is up-to-date. We're up to 17 entries so far!

All entries that I know of have paid but there is also this unclaimed bracket in the group. If this is you and you want your entry to count please DM me to pay
