The 2019/20 Last Man Standing Competition will begin on the weekend August 9th/10th and 11th. We will be running the main Last Man Standing Competition and also a Consolation version to run alongside for those who are eliminated from the main one. The prize for winning the LMS Competition will be £250 which will be deposited into you PayPal account. The prize for winning the Consolation Competition will be £50. (No other method of payment considered) Winners of both competitions will also receive Punters Lounge Merchandise The Competition includes the use of a 'Joker' which means you can choose Win or Draw on a certain week if you are struggling for a definite selection. This can only be used once. You also get the use of a Lifeline on One week if you forget or are unable to post. The competition rules in detail are as follows: Each week you must pick a Premier League team to win their game. If your team wins you go forward to the following week. If your team loses you are eligible to play in the Consolation competition the following week. All selections must be posted by 3pm on Saturday or before KO time if you choose an earlier game. You must not select the same team twice throughout the competition. If you fail to post for any reason you will be allowed ONE lifeline and you will be given the highest ranked team in the league table that you have not already chosen previously. If you fail to post a second time you will be eliminated from the competition. During the competition you will be allowed to play ONE Joker, this means on that particular week you will be able to select the Draw as well as your chosen team to win. Once a selection is chosen it can not be changed and no editing of posts are allowed. In the event of any match being postponed or abandoned (after you made your selection) you will go through to the next round but that team can not be chosen again. If the team was chosen after the game was postponed a lifeline team will be used instead. If less than 6 players remain in the comp and they all get eliminated in the same week the prize will be split evenly. In the event of multiple winners the PL Merchandise will not be won. If 6 players or more remain in the comp and they all get eliminated in the same week then all players will go through to the following week. Each competition will run for a maximum of 10 weeks, any prizes will be shared at that point between the remaining players. In the last competition of the season all players still standing on May 17th will share the prizes in both competitions. Consolation Competition extra rules: If you are eliminated from the main competition you are eligible to join the Consolation comp the following week. In the Consolation comp you can not pick any of the teams you selected in the main LMS comp. No Jokers or Lifelines are available in the Consolation competition, if you fail to post on any week you will be eliminated. The consolation comp will continue until all players have been eliminated from the main competition. (except the winner) No limit to the amount of weeks the consolation competition can run. A separate thread will be posted for the Consolation competition. Any queries please ask.
Used to do something similar ages ago and I see the ITV guys have a go each week in a slightly different way. The idea is that you have a theoretical £20 to take to the bookies, you can do whatever you want with it. Back just one horse, back 20 horses or do a yankee and a placepot, the choice is yours. Hopefully some of you will chip in now and again, it's just for fun, just stick all of the bets in one post so we can work out if you made a profit or not. Good luck, spend it wisely

Each mini-season will last 10 weeks and players must play in at least 7 of those weeks in order to keep their place in the competition.

See below Rules: Players start with a virtual bank of £100. Players can stake up to 50% of their current bank in any one week until their bank drops to £10. Minimum bet is £5 or half bank if that is lower. Once the bank drops to £10 or lower, the players stake must be either half bank or 'All in'. The player will be eliminated if an 'All in' bet loses. Players can bet on the following markets: Outright Result, Both Teams To Score and Over/Under 2.5 goals. Players are required to select ONE bet per week only and can be a combination of the above. Players can either bet on a single, a double or a treble only on any of the accepted markets. No Editing of bets to change selections, just repost if you change your mind. Players must play in 7 weeks during the 10 week season or will be eliminated. Only exception to the above rule is when a player misses 3 weeks on the trot, this will also result in elimination. Any bets posted outside these limits will be reduced in order written. (i.e.; 4 fold down to a treble) No bets will be accepted that are related in any way, in other words you can only use a team once in your bet whether that be BTTS, Over/Unders or 1,X,2. Any bets posted in error will be settled on the first part of the bet and the others treated as NR's. All bets must be posted by 3pm on Saturday (earlier if it’s a Friday or Sat Midday game. If a game is abandoned or postponed the bet will be reduced, ie; Treble to a double etc.. No rearranged matches will be taken into account. Prices to be taken from the supplied Odds thread only. (If it’s not on there, you can’t do it) Any bets with instructions missing will be governed by the price taken, after that bets will be settled in the positive outcome. (Overs/ BTTS) If no stake has been attached to the bet a default £10 win will apply or half of your bank if its less than £10. If any bet is posted after the kick off, that match will become void and the rest of the bet reduced. Treble to a Double, Double to a Single. If it was a single the whole bet will be void and a no-show will be awarded. In week 10 of the mini season duplicate bets in the same division is not allowed, first come first served, any copied bets will deemed as a loser under the fair play rule. The TC Odds thread will be posted up each Tuesday for the following weekend matches and selections threads will be set up at the same time. League tables will be posted once all matches have been completed for that week, typically this will be after the Monday night match. The Sat 3pm deadline for all bets is put in place so no one can gain an advantage by knowing if an opponent has won or lost before placing his bet. So strictly no posts allowed after the deadline will be accepted.
