I just want to add on to this that I was called Sunday night by Troy and he told me he had made a mistake in the math and told me I had $41 ($141 total for first place) more dollars coming based on the 2/3rds money he said he was paying out. I know he was calculating a lot of the stuff with pen and paper at the event among recalculating the standings/brackets by hand when the Challonge site went down due to some connectivity issues I believe. All the remaining players that placed all acknowledged being paid the correct amount after the miscalculation.
While I'm sure everyone wished the pot was bigger I know of some people opting to head down to Milwaukee to catch the Brewers game (maybe Badgers too?) and many others who just didn't respond back to Troy who said they would be there. Overall, I had a great time and from the atmosphere in the room I feel everyone else did too. Ahman Green showing up and playing with us was just icing on the cake. We had free pizza, discounted rates for the Edge VR Arcade, Two Gamerz Tek 8-Bit HD consoles were given away as raffle prizes and one was for the consolation bracket winner, so there was always something to be playing for. On top of that Ahman signed a cartage that was raffled off as well.
Nate, you're a good friend, I respect you and it's always good to have checks and balances. So having a watchful eye isn't a bad thing. But with the additional payments it all came out in the end.
I'm looking forward to Retro Mania and Tundra Bowl VI and hope to make it to the top four once again. #tecmoislovetecmoislife
