2017: Knockout Bid Series IV - Draw Up - Bidding Open!

We are making a change to the game for Knockout Bid Series IV, and playing the same game as Knockout Bid Series II

Contract Knockout Bid

You will be pitted against another SCS member, and have to bid back and forth, on who you think will a game, and by how much.
Winner continues to next week, loser is eliminated!

In Series I you were required to pick the winning team, and what score they might reach or go above.
There was no room for "accepting" your opponents bid, and they had the opportunity to outbid themselves.

In Series II we are playing a slightly different game.

In Series II you will be required to nominate a winning team, and the the margin you think they can win by.

So if Darkie was playing The Underdogs, Darkie might open the bidding with:

@The Underdogs, I say WC by 8 points.

If The Underdogs doesn't outbid Darkie, and WC win by 8 or more points, then Darkie wins the match, otherwise The Underdogs wins the match.

The Underdogs can choose to outbid that, and he can choose any game or team he likes, as long he increases the margin by 3 points or more. So The Underdogs might have countered Darkie's bid with:

@Darkie, I say St Kilda 11 points.

and so on, back and forth, until either no one makes a legitimate higher bid


Someone locks the bidding by accepting the opponents bid!

In the scenario shown above, Darkie can effectively close the bidding in his match against The Underdogs, by simply posting

@The Underdogs, I accept your bid.

The match would now be closed for any further bidding.

Given the match can be locked by someone accepting a bid, there is no complicated lockout process.
The matches automatically lock at the start of the Friday night game each week.

If the match isn't locked, you can outbid yourself, as long as you raise the margin by at least 3 points. If you outbid yourself, you can change teams and games if you wish.

If we don't get the numbers for a "proper" draw, it will be a double elimination comp.
This competition won't have the potential double involvement problem of Series I

We have 9 players already, and the more, the merrier.

$20 to enter, and the prize will depend on the number of entrants.
