The top three teams at the end of Season Two will share a $2,500 prize pool, Jon Olson announced yesterday in TELive.
The prizes will be broken down as follows…
First place – $1,750
Second place – $500
Third place – $250
This is a huge increase over Season One where the prize fund worked out at $142 for each of the 35 weeks of competition. In contrast the current prize pool is $250 a week this season – an increase of more than 75%.
The prizes will be awarded to the team leaders and it will be up to them how it is distributed within their teams.
For Season Three we plan to shake things up a bit in order to make the contest more exciting for all teams – no matter where their position is within CTP Teams.
In order to make the necessary changes there will be another break between seasons – at least one week and possibly two – but we will keep let you know for sure as soon as the dates are finalized.
We have big plans for Season Three and it is fair to say that we will be changing things up quite a bit and we feel sure that you will like the new format.
Jon and I gave some hints in TELive yesterday about some of the changes, and in case you were not there, then this is a recap:
+ Season Three will be longer than Season Two (but shorter than Season One)
+ There will be an integral ‘pre-season’ element at the beginning – the pre-season phase of the contest will be a very important part of Season Three
+ The aim is to announce the structure of the season in advance and then not make any changes for the entire season. We do reserve the right to make changes for operational reasons but will endeavor not to do so unless strictly necessary.
That is about as much as I can say for now…but rest assured, I will be telling all very soon indeed.
Enjoy the rest of Season Two. Tom Wacker predicted a win for SurfAholics Alpha on his show yesterday and he could well be right. However there is virtually nothing at all separating Alphas from Walter Mulder’s Uber Surfers so the winner will be which of the two teams has the better strategy in these final two weeks.
Both teams are easily capable of winning and both are made up of strong, dedicated and resourceful players so it will be an epic battle of two very deserving CTP Teams giants.
I will make one prediction though…Lucky 13 will finish the season in third place.
