Player's Bracket is a 32 player bracket decided by popular vote, game results from the NCAA tournament and "Super Votes". The player with the highest total score in each matchup advances to the next round. Winning in the real tournament earns players bonus points, but the real power is with the fans. Even if your favorite player loses early, you can Super Vote him into the next round!
|Round||Dates||Players||Second Chance||Free Votes|
|4||March 28 - April 1||4||3||2|
Once per round, each user may support their favorite player with a $1-$5 contribution. Super Votes are worth 100-500 regular votes.
|Price||Number of Votes|
Starting in Round 2, the 5 highest vote-getters from Round 1 are placed in a second chance elimination. Each round, one second chance player is eliminated, until the winner of the main bracket and the second chance bracket face off in the finals.
It wouldn't be the NCAA Tournament if you didn't need to win! Every time a player's team wins in real life, they get Player's Bracket bonus points.
|Number of Tournament Wins||Bonus Points|
|2 wins||100 + 200 = 300|
|3 wins||300 + 300 = 600|
|4 wins||600 + 400 = 1000|
|5 wins||1000 + 500 = 1500|
|6 wins (Champion!)||1500 + 600 = 2100|
