Andy,

Good write up! How exactly does a Calcutta work? Is it kinda like a horse race where you can bet on the horse/team you think will win?

I know it's big in saltwater, but a new concept to me.

Inquiring minds want to know!

Terry, it was all Booker on the Choke write-up.

Good quesiton regarding the Calcutta...

It's a side bet where the pot is formed by an auction that is held before the tournament. The teams are all up for bid, and all the money goes into the pot. You are allowed to bid on your own team and the owner of the winning team wins the pot or whatever percentage of the pot is designated for the winning places.

I think Dale and I went the cheapest at $100 and some teams went as high as $600-$700! There were some serious sticks in that room and that should confirm just how tough Choke is right now.

Great time hanging at the lodge as always though!

Yea Terry, that Calcutta was fun. I have never been a part of those before, but maybe we can start doing those in some of our tournies.

Fun as hell to bid on each other!

Great read, sounds like it was fun.

Question though.  How can 1st big bass be 5.5 lbs when 6th place and 1 fish for 7.88?   :-?
