But that's what I love most about the World Cup - I'll watch those games. Every single game.
I absolutely love it :)

Luckily I have a job that will allow me to gorge on the whole tournament without rearranging anything else in my life :)

Count me in.

Maybe I'm being a bit thick, but just to clarify you get the end amount from each of the 8 batches added together to use in the knock-out rounds.

Yes that's right so you have a total of £800 to spend (£100 on each batch) which you must use (or lose it). Then prior to knockouts you will receive your Pots (all 8 batches added together) to use during the 32 knock out games where you can bet whatever you like as per our previous games. I'll post odds as we go.
