Right, we have 2 chances to have to special Betting Masters, an Xmas special (on top on the normal December one) and the 100th edition on the Betting Masters which will just be the March Comp I think

Xmas special, would people be up for this? If so we could do a quickfire knockout event, please put your name down if interested.

Each match could take place over 2 or 3 days cumlinating in the final either just before or just after Xmas.

For the March one I was thinking something similar to the Xmas one but double elimination and each match over slightly more days (15 bets over 4 or 5 days?), being double elimination might make it trickier to score but does mean that over these sprint events you're allowed one bad match.

Of course the final would mean that one need to win once and the other finalist (having already lost once) would need to win twice.

Any other ideas for either event?

I did think of 100 bets for the 100th edition but that would be a logistical nightmare to score!!! :)

A straight knockout sounds good - a bit like the FA Cup.

Not seen this thread before now..just don't do like BM 50 (50 bets) was a nightmare and no real fun.
I'm always up for any BM thread:)

I remember that was a logistical nightmare for you!

If anyone is up for an Xmas one put your name down here, if we get 16 then we'll run a knockout with each match taking 2-3 days depending on numbers. If we don't get 16 by the 15th Dec then we'll leave it.

March BM 100 will be a knockout (not sure double elimination or not)

I'll join the Christmas special thanks.

My initial idea for the 100th edition is that each entrant has 100 additional points to use on their 20 bets. For example, if you have a special you could have 110 points on it instead of the usual 10. At the other extreme, you could spread the bonus points and have half of your bets for 20 points.

Can't do Christmas Special, but the 100th edition March special sound like a good idea.

Right, I make it 15 so far which is plenty, will start a new thread on this then, couple of days to work out the rules and the format, anyone with any ideas feel free to add

Will also send some PMs to BM regulars not in it yet.

gjohnk, have put you in, if you don't fancy it then let me know and I'll take you out. No problem having more or fewer than 16 as that'll just mean some 1st round byes

StuNick here in Aus off to the Whitsundays later this morning but when he's back on Thursday night (Aus time) we'll do the draw so we can start it on Saturday

Here are the names, will start a new thread, hope I've not missed anyone off, please let me know if I have
