tlb challenge might be tough.... those numbers are skewed toward the higher buy-ins. You can play alot worse, but at a higher buy-in level... and get more points.

As noted, the TLB is biased to those players willing to risk the most money. If you want an equitable system, either go with something based on the Cowboy Challenge's ROI or come up with a scoring system to use regardless of the level played. Since the Battle of the Planets stops at 27-players, you need to come up with a point system. It could be as simple as assigning points to a player's final placement if they make the money.

70 points = First
60 points = Second
50 points = Third
40 points = Fourth
30 points = Fifth
20 points = Sixth
10 points = Seventh

Best of all, since your challenge involves cash games, there's a means of validating the finishes. Only question remaining is if you intend allowing the participants an unlimited number of games. One nice thing, those wishing to take part in your challenge can also participate in the Cowboy Challenge as the same time.
