There are some simple rules:

  1. One prediction per person. Guessing more than once will result in ALL of your guesses being disqualified.
  2. Winners are ordered by closeness to the ending figure as reported by Full Tilt Poker. There is no penalty for going over/under in any direction — the only goal is to be as close as possible to the actual outcome.
  3. This contest is only valid if durrrr and Patrik exceed a total hand count of 30,000. If they quit beforehand, this prediction contest is void.
  4. Predictions will close at or around 15,000 total hands.
  5. Once your prediction is entered, it cannot be changed.
  6. Prizes will be paid by ThisIsTheNuts.com via Full Tilt Poker transfer in a timely manner after the challenge concludes.
  7. In order to be paid, you must be reachable after the challenge via the email you enter below because TITN will need to know your FTP username to send the transfer.
  8. If you’re a ThisIsTheNuts.com rakeback network member* with $100 in combined lifetime rake on ANY poker network by the last day of challenge play, you will get your prize doubled. In other words, if you finish first, you will receive $2000. The same doubling applies to any other prize.

Sorry, the Durrrr Challenge Prediction Contest is now closed due to the players hitting the 15,000 hand milestone on May 29th, 2009. Thanks to all who participated. The next milestone is 30,000 hands which will officially “lock in” the contest as being valid. Good luck!
