We had a total of 154 players participating, and a hard fought battle towards the end saw Pete Maidment take out the honours after Josh made a huge charge towards the finish line. In third place we had Bjorn Hevroy on $1,331,130.00, with BuddyLuv on $819,202.55 in fourth, and Matt on $144,999.40 rounding up fifth place.

"Being a horse racing/gambling tragic from way back, when the email arrived about this little CM Racing game I was most intrigued.  My initial aim was to beat McNuff07 who I assumed to be a fella I used to work at Wembley but as I tumbled from my opening $1000 back to $10 I noticed that he had disappeared from the leader board as well and he never popped up as a threat again.
 

After about and hour stuck on $10 (with the occasional small win) I figured that the roughies were coming in a little more frequently than their odds suggested they should.  With a tremendous amount of restraint (something that I do not have with real money) I bet the $10 to place on the roughie until it came in.  I continued with this until I figured that I had enough to raise it to $20 and so on.  I also noticed that the most common winner of the long shots was the $72.10, so if it ever came up, I also bet on the win.
 

Getting back to $1000 was a milestone!  It took 10 mins to lose it all and about 10 hours to get it all back.  I think at the end of the first day I was at $173 000 or thereabouts. 
 

Somewhere the next night I got into a bit of a grudge match with Buddyluv (a fellow fantasy NFL league member) as we swapped 1st & 2nd a few times.  My greatest early tragedy was when a bet on a $72 horse paid over $1000000 and a glitch did not allow the pay out.  Another million dollar non-payout, and a note to the developers and I settled back into a betting pattern to make sure that my payouts would be less than 1 million.  It was during this run that the ante was upped by Josh who not only over took my total, but had me completely dominated for a while.  The competitive streak flared up again and I had to get back on top.  A few rash bets and things looked bad for a while, but moving back to what I knew best, the total started to build again.  Once the million dollar payout glitch was fixed I had a few big wins (and many big losses) but went to bed on Wed night with $54.6 million, knowing I would not get to the computer all day and hoping it would hold up.
 

Luckily, it was just enough but congrats to Josh who really came at me the last 2 days and forced me to spend even more time with the game.  When you live in South Hedland, something like this to whittle away the hours is a godsend!
 

Thanks to everyone involved and well done to the developers."
