Does anybody know how many teams are expected this weekend? I was looking at the payout, and if you are in 40th-50th place, you still get TEN GRAND :eek: :eek: ;D

So if there are 200 boats, you have a 25% shot at 10Grand or more...I like those odds 8)

There are 200 boats/teams. I believe the pro entry cost is $3500. I'm not sure about the co-angler entry. I have a feeling this tourney is going to come down to a game of ounces in determining payouts for spots 20th-50th. Total payout of the tourney is $1M :)

So what other investments oppty's do you have where you have a 25% chance of a 190% ROI?

I am kinda suprised that bookies/vegas gambler types don't pay the entry fee of there favorite angler for a cut of the action....you know, the guys that will bet on anything.

Or pay a 1/3 of each of the top 3 anglers entry fee's from last year to make the odds better...

I could be completely wrong here, but it sounds closer odds than horse or dog racing ;D

Well back to the point b4 it got all racial...

Now to get technical...
Terry you are considering the odds to be even money. However since fishing is a skill sport, most people would not have even ods. I would not back anyones entry fee if they were fishing agaisnt 50 people better than them. So you got to consider your probability of beating every one else. Me against 3 other pros I would not give myself 25% - otherwise you would be saying I have a = chance to beat a pro (such as KVD) as he does me. (But luck also plays a factor, these 7#s seem to be making all the difference in this tourny.)

Off topic this just got me thinking, how sweet would it be to be the top pros (KVD again) in a tourny.

Jon - of course I know it's not all even chances, but I was thinking about it some more and see if this makes sense...

If you are a pro you are not fishing against 200 people, just 99 other pro's, right?

So, after entry fee, you have a 50/50 shot of making it in the top 50, there by making 10 grand...

And at that level of fishing, I think there is a good deal of luck to it as well...they are all world-class fisherman, and on a lake like travis, it's just who gets the right 5 bites.
