How high has your league ace pot gotten?
 
Just curious. Ours is up to over $700. The word has gotten around that it's that high, so lately we've been having a good amount of people show up to play, and it's $5 for the ace pot. Tomorrow after every one puts in their money it'll probably be close to $800, maybe over.

Wow, I thought ours @ $260 or something was big. Someone is going to have a sick ace.

We had a regional one creep over 500, one single buck at a time. There was also a second one growing in reserve that was over 200.

Ace pots generally don't get me too interested, yet I will contribute to keep pace with the crowd.

I thought it would be interesting if a local club had say.. a dollar opt in ace pot, but as soon as it gets to 200, it goes to two dollar in, 300 to 3 buck in, etc... Could balloon that way and be interesting.

Ours I believe just crossed the $300 mark, but we only pay out half if it gets hit.

We just paid out a $411 ace at McCurry Park. $1 buy in.

Most ace funds in KC hover around $200-500, and pay half.

Last year at Rosedale the fund got just over $1,000, and I'm told that the one at WyCo got to like $1,600 a few years back.

I believe on Tuesday leagues are ace pot only rounds.. so to play you have to put in $5 towards the pot. Thursdays you can choose to put in $1-$5. That's what I was told.

I cap the ace pool at $200 and start a new one. Who wants some rando showing up, paying in a couple bucks and taking all that local built up cash? Especially if its hundreds upon hundreds of dollars.

And if one of the pots gets drained at least you have another on the side building up. Keeps the league attractive to players.

Ours got over 700 and my buddy hit it.

A good thing that our winter league does to avoid the randoms coming in and swooping on the pot is keeping track of who has paid week by week and making them pay extra based on how many weeks they have been there to make them "catch up" so it is fair
