|The Mini Playoff Hold 'Em Tournament will begin with the first wild card games and continue through the final playoff game. Points will be accumulated throughout the playoffs and the team with the most total points wins the grand prize.
All other prizes will also be paid based on total points. Each week the number of points an NFL player earns for you will be multiplied by the number of consecutive weeks he has been on your roster, rewarding fantasy players who correctly can predict top players on this year's teams that compete in the Championship game. Players who have first-round byes automatically earn two times their total points during Week 2 of the playoffs.
$20,000 grand prize
|Cash prizes are awarded in U.S. dollars and are awarded to the principal owner of the team. Teams can split prizes among multiple owners by filling out the proper paperwork with SportsHub Games Network, Inc.'s accounting department before season's end. In the event of a tie, cash prizes are divided evenly among those who have tied.|
|Overall Prize Details|
| In the event that there is a tie for the grand prize or any of the overall prizes, the following tie-breakers will be used:
1) Highest score of the teams involved from the final playoff game.
2) Highest score of the teams involved from the third round games.
3) Highest score of the teams involved from the second round games.
4) Highest score of the teams involved from the first round games.
5) Highest weekly score of the teams during the playoffs (i.e. one team had a high of 220 points and the other team’s high score was 215, the 220 would win).
6) Split the prize money in question.
|Owners must manage a team of 12 players throughout the first three rounds playoffs, and 8 players in the Super Bowl to accumulate the most league points.
All starting rosters must be finalized five minutes before that weekend’s first playoff game. No lineup changes will be allowed after that first kickoff.
Transactions are unlimited each week. After week one of the playoffs, you can pick up new players to fill out your playoff roster.
First Round of Playoffs:
Owners will initially complete their roster by selecting one player from 12 of 14 teams that qualified for the playoffs.
Second Round of Playoffs:
In the second round as teams are eliminated from the playoffs, owners can have as many as two players from the same team on their teams roster.
Championship Round of Playoffs:
In the Championship Round, owners can have as many as three players from the same team on their teams roster.
Final Playoff Game:
In the final playoff game, owners can have as many as four players from the same team on their teams roster (for a total of 8 players).
|Maximum of 12 players at all times.
In the final playoff game, rosters will consist of 8 players from any of those 12 spots.

|Each week during the contest, fantasy points are multiplied by the number of consecutive weeks each player has been on your roster. So if you pick Aaron Rodgers to be one of your starting QBs in the first week of the playoffs and the Packers are a Wild Card team, you would earn his points from week one. If the Packers won that wild card game, his points in the second round of playoffs would be multiplied by two. If the Packers advanced to the NFC Championship Game, his points would be multiplied by three and then multiplied by four if the Packers reached the final playoff game (same scenario as 2010). Any NFL player that receives a first-round bye and remains on your roster automatically has their points multiplied by two during their first game. Once one of your players is eliminated from the playoffs, you can pick up a new player for that upcoming round, but the multiplier would begin at one because you just added him to your roster.|
|2020 NFL Season Interruption|
|The NFFC guarantees prize payouts if the NFL plays all of its scheduled games through Week 8 (all games that week). Should the NFL regular season be shut down for any reason before the completion of Week 8 and not resume after that, the NFFC will refund all entry fees and no prizes will be awarded. Should the NFL season shut down after Week 8 and before the end of Week 16 without resuming, the NFFC will pay out prizes in full based on standings at that time in each league and within the overall standings. Owners would be paid in full based on the overall standings at that time and league standings would determine payouts in each league at that time. Total Points would determine the league champion in leagues that require playoffs between points leaders and head-to-head leaders. Final standings determine the prize winners at the time of the NFL's shutdown if beyond Week 8 and play doesn't resume.|
