All Live Best Ball rules and prizes apply but what will make the Bare Knuckle Challenge so special are these exclusive rules:
– No cheatsheats, No computers, No smartphones, No pens or pencils, No paper, No using your palm or any other part of your body to hide notes. Nothing is allowed at the draft table other than food and beverage. The draft board will be the ONLY way for owners to keep track of the draft. There will be NO tolerance for breaking these rules! Period!
– Draft slots will be randomly drawn at the draft table, 5 minutes prior to start of draft
– 30 second time limit per pick. Strictly enforced! One warning will be given at the 25 second mark. If the announced pick is of a player that has already been drafted and the 30 second clock has expired, the owner will be skipped and will have 5 seconds to make his selection after the next pick is made.
– One drafter per team at the table. Co-managers are not allowed to sit directly at the table but may switch with the primary owner ONCE during the draft. Co-managers planning to switch into the draft must remain seated directly behind the primary owner, within view. They must abide by the same rules and cannot keep a draft tracker or papers of any kind, before or after they enter the draft.
– One 5-minute break will be allowed half way through the draft after Round 14
