Thanks.
It means $6 of your buy-in goes into the total payout. So if you have ten players, there's $60 in the prize pool to be paid out to those that cash.

I'm sure/ I know it does, i just thought the comment funny that there was no question as to how come the total didn't actually add up to ten instead of nine.

I guess i could have also read it wrong... I was thinking the ten dollar buy in was reg fee total, 3 dollars of which goes to ace pot 6 to pay out, one dollar left over...

But if it's 10 for buy in, 3 for ace pot which i guess is usually optional and... aww, who cares. i know the remainder always goes to "other" fees.

Where do you get 3 dollars from?


EDIT
$3 ace pot? I think that is an extra 3 dollars if I'm not mistaken.

Why is it that champion plastic is more overstable than the other plastics? Also how is Discraft's Z a lot like champion, but they don't seem to have the same problem?

It's not that Champ is necessarily more overstable. It's that it stays overstable throw after throw.

From Innova:

Quote:
Discs Made With...
| Star Plastic will retain flight ratings for a long period of time, with added grip.
| Champion Plastic will retain flight ratings for a long period of time.
| Pro Plastic will start slightly less overstable and the driver models will have more glide.
| DX Plastic will start more overstable and with use will match the ratings. With continued use, the DX plastic will eventually become more understable than the ratings.
You can throw a brand new DX Teebird (for example), and for that first throw, it might be as stable as a Champ. But, it won't take long before it loses that overstablity.

Well then are their flight rating based on discs after a certain time of use, like the boss in champion is 13 5 0 3 instead of -1 3, same kind of thing with the tern.
