The tournament results here on DGS only have down that three people hit aces, and that they all got $70. I can see how that might make some people scratch their heads after having a $5 ace pool and no car.
We had 38 people enter on Saturday and 43 on Sunday for a total of 81X$5=$405. The choices that we gave the ace pool winners at the throw-off were to take the Chainstar basket or a) give the dealer 30 days to come up with a vehicle b) take $300 cash c) $1000 trade-in. Brian Buchholz won the throw off and elected to take the Chainstar. Ryan Nesbitt had his choice of a), b) and c) and chose to take the $300 cash (we also comped his entry fees for the rest of the season). The three of them then split half (a little more than half) of the $405 as was stipulated for $70 each. So for the $405 players paid in, we paid out $510 and a $388 basket while adding $195 to the skins rounds for qualified players.
Everyone would have preferred for that to have been $210 and a car and a basket, but as Zach said the dealership fell through. We are sorry that the car was not locked down in advance and that the results were not clearer before. Thanks again to everyone who helped make this such a great event.
