Bench Cash


Bench Cash is an opportunity for your bracket to stay in the game after it falls out of the running for the top payouts.  If you do not place in the top payouts you will be eligible for the second place prizes.  Prizes will be determined after the start of the tournament.  Each payout will have a maximum number of winners.  In the case when a number is exceeded the standard tiebreaker ruls will be applied.
