    It will be very interesting to see if there are elements of game theory in some of the leaders' picks. Games extend into future weeks' Bowl games ending Monday January 6, 2020.

    Will ACKATTACK, SIRIUS, and DETROIT LION (and MUCKED NUTS) have common picks or perhaps opposing ones?

    It will be very tough for Dave to get into 10th place or better. Maybe need some contrarian picks going 6-1 versus opponents going 2-5.

    Also there are 3 at 64.5, 6 at 64, 4 at 63.5, and 6 at 63 within striking range of 20th place.

        Yep...I needed Kansas State to beat Navy to have shot at Top 20 (I finished 56%, solid but don't feel cheated by not cashing)...oh, well, back to just reporting on these contests LMEAO.

            AckAttack-2 ties for 1st place in Ultimate Football Challenge @GoldenNuggetLV with -- AckAttack-3, so "they" split the 1st place prize of $105,416 & 2nd place of $52,708 for a total of $158,124; Sirius-2 could have forced 3-way tie but lost Monday night w/ Louisiana -14 @VSiNLive

            Here's my @VSiNLive story on Michael Wachs, a 53-year-old investment manager from Westchester County, N.Y., winning $158,124 as 2 of his "AckAttack" entries tied for 1st place in the Ultimate Football Challenge @GoldenNuggetLV; "Sirius" finished 3rd & 4th https://www.vsin.com/ny-man-wins-158...ugget-contest/
