BTW we are all extremely proud of our Foals who advanced at the end of the 2nd quarter. In their first MTT in the Golden Donks League, they finished at a composite average of 11th place which is better than the 12th place median. FatnSassy even made it to the Final Table… OUTSTANDING PLAY!!!

365 DAYS LATER
On July 7, 2018, a message was sent out to a handful of respected Replay Poker players, including chuckcox, hessman, Oltop and Reesepiece plus others and Badonk’s Donks was born. Although at that time we were still nameless, the first tournament was started at exactly 6:59pm ET on Sunday July 8. Invitees all stood by and signed onto a single SnG table simultaneously, because we had no league. From those humble beginnings our league has grown to what it is today, having 89 (soon to be 91) respected and respectful members, playing twice weekly in two different tiered leagues with 4 (soon to be 6) different leaderboards.
Regardless of whether you’ve been around since the beginning or maybe today is your first tournament. Whether you participate consistently in each tournament every week or maybe you just play occasionally. Whether you’ve been heavily involved with recruiting new members or maybe you’ve only mentioned it to one person. Whether you’re in the western hemisphere and playing at a reasonable hour or maybe you’re halfway around the world and playing in the early morning hours. No matter your level of involvement, the league wants to take this opportunity to express appreciation for the countless hours of enjoyment that you’ve given me and others, because it couldn’t have happened without every single one of you.
Thank you,
Badonkidonk

Fond memories of the first one I played in. Before registering I requested and easy table. When the tourney started I was seated at a table all by myself. :roll_eyes:

A NEW LEADERBOARD FOR THE FOAL’S NEW WAY TO ADVANCE
As posted on this Forum on July 1, there will be 8 league members (instead of only 6) advancing from the Grey Foals League to the Golden Donks League at the end of the 3rd quarter. This will be done as follows:

  1. Like last quarter, the 3 who finish at the top of the Sunday leaderboard.
  2. Like last quarter, the 3 who finish at the top of the Wednesday leaderboard.
  3. Also, the 2 who play the best on both Sunday AND Wednesday nights combined.

So who is actually playing the best on both Sunday and Wednesday nights combined? To answer that question, we will be posting this link to our new Composite Grey Foals League Leaderboard:


And since we’ll be tracking who is the best playing Foal for both nights, why not find out who is the best playing Donk for both nights? So here is a link to our new Composite Golden Donks League Leaderboard:

Question: It’s possible (and even likely) that the combined leaderboard will have the top 3 players from Wed and Sun appear in the Top Two Combined. What then? If the Top 3 and Top 3 and Top 2 are fewer than 8 distinct individuals, do you fill it out to make 8?

donk is extremely arrogant.reminds me of ben askren, gonna take a flying knee to the face.

REPLY TO PUGGYWUG
Thank you for your question. Great observation and you are correct. First of all, there will definitely be 8 Foals to advance to the Golden Donks League. If we don’t have 8 different Foals after taking the Top 3 from two weekly leaderboards and the Top 2 from the composite leaderboard, the league will advance Foals in the following order until 8 Foals have advanced:

  1. The Foal who finished in 3rd place on the composite leaderboard.
  2. The Foal with the most carrots or sugar cubes (after halving) when considering only the Foals who finished in 4th place on each of the three leaderboards.
  3. The Foal with the second most carrots or sugar cubes (after halving) when considering only the two remaining Foals who finished in 4th place on the three leaderboards.
  4. The final Foal who finished in 4th place on the three leaderboards.
  5. Repeat #2 then #3 then #4 above when considering only the Foals who finished in 5th place on each of the three leaderboards.

Thank you again, puggywug, for posting your keen observation.
