Thanks for the Updates Wes/Ben. Wes do you know what the $50 bounty was for?

Great idea/list!

Don't forget the $10K I got and the $5K Vince got for the Vice doc.  Shhh... don't tell him.  hahaha j/k

I did get paid for a few appearances/interviews, but I don't play for the money.  I play to beat the sh*t out of Vince.

LOL, well appearances I wont count. I was treating this more like a PGA earnings list.

I bet the IRS would like to see that list <Tim>

Ethan actually sent me $25 instead of $20 for the DKO2 bounty, even though it was listed as $20. It was awfully nice of him.

Personally I never got paid for anything. But it doesn't matter. I don't play for money. I play to get my ass kicked by Hank Chien.  <Allen> Kappa

I've won a couple more prizes, forget for what though.  Also Shaun split the $10k with me for the Verge doc.

For me, the most interesting list would be another column next to the high score list stating number of hours played.  That's not possible though.

The idea behind this thread is so good that it's the kind of thing where you are mad at yourself for not thinking of it.

I'm also really happy that my tournament summaries came in handy for something. Honestly the main reason I do those is actually for myself, so that I can refer to them later and know exactly where to go!

I would often feel like they were a waste of time, though. Then this thread happened...

There should be like a bounty badge for this, lol!

+1 maybe even three badges (eg - gold, silver, bronze for 1st, 2nd, 3rd) recognizing standing, since there's a strong chance Jeff's top standing will never be beaten. I know there isn't any other badge system for tournaments that represents anything other than 1st, but a three-tier badge system like this would be great for showing overall performance throughout multiple tournaments.

These badges would also encourage more tournament play in general, as bounties would be more sought after. We've seen in the past how bounties have been unclaimed... if this change went through that would be a thing of the past.
