I don't understand why you should be allowed to bet 0. If we're all going to do lock picks, then you should have to put something on it, even if it's just 1 unit. What if everyone does really bad or ends up being close to even, and some guy who got 3 or 4 good picks at the beginning stops playing? They might end up winning.
I don't know...I guess it's not fair to make picks for people either, but it would just bum me out if someone who didn't play the whole time won. There's got to be something we can do to make it fair for people who play every week.
If you go broke you should only get one unit the next week so that you have to slowly build up your pot again. Also, if you give 3 unit to start with after they go broke there is no reason for them to not bet all of it right away (or for somebody who has only two units not to go all in - if that makes any sense). Anyways, I'm in favour of starting everyone out with 3, 4 or 5 units but if you go broke you only get one for next week.
Yeah, I guess that makes sense. Heck, you could even start everyone out with 1 and make people earn everything they get. Chip and a chair, you know!
