Please remember OKgamers needs businesses to feel comfortable about posting their events - else the site is useless, and we shut it down.  Please believe what they say; and remember it's based on attendance, so it's really up to the community at that point anyway, not them.

I've got one to two cars coming from Tulsa, and that means at least 3 to 4 wii's.

I think I may have phrased it wrong.  We're used to having variable pots that are usually based on attendance.  Last opener, KS thought it was weird that 18 people came and the pot totaled $150.

Yeah, this tournament will definitely get a better turnout if the prize money depends on the number of players. Usually, it is 10 dollars for singles per player, 10 dollars per player for doubles and there is a 5 dollar venue fee to help the tournament host pay for the venue. Then the total pot is split 60-30-10 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

If hxc was to say, add the $100 as a BONUS prize to the 1st place pot and the $50 as a bonus to the 2nd place pot then more players would definitely be interested in coming.

 Out of state players wont have incentive to come to this tournament if the prize money is going to be $100 or $150 no matter what.

Thank you bassem for helping me define it better.  However, this situation is different.  This is a business running the tournament, so they have to profit somehow.

150 for 1st 2nd 75 and 3rd gets money too?? dude if that is not enough you are just being inconsiderate... think of this.. we have taxes to pay for... we giving out cold cash, we keep you from having to pay taxes. There has been people from other states that came to our tournaments. We are trying .. the only profit we get it goes right back to the community so dont think we get a dime from doing these. Hey thanks you guys!

I have no idea what you're talking about.  Those amounts are not correct.  First is supposedly 100, second is supposedly 50, and third i dont think has gotten money ever since your 3rd promotional tournament.  (this is based on the threads i sifted through in the aftermarth forum)

Perhaps you could also fill us in on what these taxes you are talking about.  Because Saif/every TO manages to pull off a tournament without fixed pot amounts.

Hey thanks you guys!

Im not saying that hxc needs to raise the prize money bro. If more players show up, there will be naturally be MORE money in the overall pot since it costs $10 to enter singles PER player. Lets say that 23 players show up. Thats 23 players x $10 each for singles entry fee. That equals $230 which is enough to break even since youre giving $150 for 1st and $50 for 2nd and $25 for 3rd.

BUT what happens if more than 23 players show up? Lets say 25 show up. thats $250 in the overall pot. But youre still only giving 150 for 1st and 50 for 2nd and 25 for 3rd. So where does the other $25 go to? If you want money to pay for taxes, then the venue fee may be able to cover that if enough players show up.
