For all participants and in-person guests, we will host a Calcutta Player Auction.  After pool play and before bracket play we will have a player auction. Anyone wanting to bid/buy a player puts up the money and if that player wins the tourney, the bidder/owner wins the pot.  Any players not purchased will be auctioned off as "the field".  Players that were purchased can opt to "SPLIT" the cost and will split the winnings with the owner.  Players can own themselves but obviously must outbid all others.  Bidders/owners must be present to take home the cash and any bidder/owner not present at the conclusion of the tournament will forfeit the pot to the winning player.

Illinois - Mort

ZERO chance it snows Nov 3, it would be really abnormal. Also after not going to a tourney because of snow last year it was the most regretted thing I ever did, so do like me and say never will weather determine a tournament. FYI I got 4th last year.

4th? Time to step your game up; we all know you’re better than that. First place this year?? 👍🏻

4th was amazing considering I lost first round of bracket and had to battle back game after game after game. It was epic. I am having a goal of getting first at the silver bracket this year. (FYI there is no silver bracket).

It's looking like the Mortmobile will make a run hit me up if your in the Green Bay, Fox Valley, Milwaukee,  or even Dubuque area we can probably make it happen.

Just a reminder that the Mortmobile sponsored by Justin Peters for this tournament has empty spots.  The plan is to take my car which has room for 2 or 3 more people aside from myself and Gats from Green Bay down Highway 43 to Milwaukee if you live in the Fox Valley or near 41 we can take that route also it only adds about 20 minutes. Then we would take 94 from Milwaukee down to Chicago meaning if you live or that path you could tag along also. From there we would meet up with Mort as of right now the only confirmed riders are myself, Gats, and Mort and the mortmobile seats 7 so that leaves 4 extra spots.  From Chicago we would most likely take 88 to the Davenport area we could take 55 into 80 instead also.  From the Davenport area we would take 80 past Iowa City into Des Moines.  So if you live anywhere on that route or can meet anywhere on that route hit me up with a message, text (920) 840-3082, or message me on discord.
