LeRoys Money Talks Handicapping Tournament Week

16 handicappers shall participate in this 15 week Tournament, fashioned along the lines of the Stardust Invitational which ran for 11 years.

However, unlike the Stardust Tournament, each of the 16 participants in the Money Talks contest has put up $ 5,000.oo for a total of $ 80,000.oo in the prize pool.

LeRoys has added $ 20,000.oo to make the total prize pool $ 100,000.oo of which $ 80,000.oo will go to the ultimate winner and $ 20,000.oo will go to the runner up

Each week two contestants are matched against each other in a head to head meeting with each handicapper making 7 selections against the LeRoys pointspread that exists shortly before air time. The 7 selections are rated, effectively, from 1 to 7 in that each contestant will risk a mythical 110 to win 100 on his weakest selection, increasing in 110/100 increments to the Best Bet which risks 770 to win 700. The contestant with the most money won -- regardless of win/loss record -- advances to the next round. The contest will be held Friday evenings between 7 and 9 PM at the Silverton hotel, south of the Las Vegas Strip, except for the opening week match which will be held Thursday, September 7 at the Silverton. The public is welcome -- and encouraged -- to attent. The contest airs over Las Vegas radio station KBAD (AM 920) at 7:00 PM and is also expected to be available for broadcast live on the Internet at www.americanwagering.com -- just click on the Leroys link and follow other links to reach the broadcast). The two contestants who win their first 3 matches will meet in the Finals to be held on Friday, December 15, 2006 and are assured of winning either 20,000.oo or $ 80,000.oo.
