Special thanks to S T A R D O C K for their support of the tournament!
I will be handling the financial transactions for the PLSTH. Pacov is a known trustworthy source but i don't want to saddle him with the work in dealing with it. I assure you that I am as well.
You are not required to send money to be in the tournament. But if $10 (or more) is not much money to you then please add some to the pot.
Submission of the money.
I would prefer if you send the money to me via paypal. I'll upload my commitment to paypal and will leave all of the money there for distribution after the tournament. PM me and i will send you my paypal account info or a mailing address or something to help make it happen. I would rather not post this info publicly.
Winner receipt of money,
I would strongly prefer to send the winnings out via paypal as well. If you don't have a paypal account then you could use someone else who does have one and will send you the cash. Other options include moneygram, 2-day fed-ex (preferably not ground or home) or that Nigerian friend that we all have. The fees for sending would come out of your personal winnings. Paypal accounts are free and make life a lot easier. If you don't have an account just go set one up now. I'm also open to suggestions, and the easier it is for me, the more better . We'll worry about how to send money out of the USA should that become a problem.
The winnings are to be split up accordingly:
First Place: 40% of the money
Second Place: 30% of the money
Third Place: 20% of the money
Round Robin Winner: 10%
(This is not set in stone, if you have other suggestions please let the community know and it can discussed)
Frag McShane - it is your civic duty to do so!
McShane has thankfully put a target on his head for the tournament. He offered to donate $20 to the pot if he gets killed twice in a single game or if he is killed twice by any single player. (Suicides or enemy tower deaths don't count). If you succeed in this task then $10 of McShanes money goes directly to you (or team) and the other $10 goes to the pot.
These people have pledged a minimum $10 to the tournament pot. Please note the I will be uploading my previously announced commitment plus some additional, in the near future. Some of our community members have offerred to donate additional funds to the pot than the requested $10, however a couple of them have asked to remain anonymous.
Current total pot received: $649.54
Round Robin winner 10%: $65.00
Current total pot remaining: $584.54

This is the list of people who have not confirmed if they will or will not pay. If you wouldn't mind confirming via post or PM to myself or Pacov I would appreciate it.
Mcshane, Orcun & Renz are the winners of the round robin and are awarded 10% of the pot. Payment sent 12/23/10
Please be sure to give Karma, a thanks and show appreciation to the donators. Since most are on separate teams it is a losing proposition. They are specifically doing this to keep the game alive, make the tournament more attractive and fun for all of us.
