Hey guys, I'm new here! I think I've got the hang of this, but is there anything other than the basics that I should know? Thanks!

    If a new release has Thur night previews be sure to pay attention to its preview revenue. And typically strong scoring lineups consist of 2,3 or 4 different movies. I saw you planned on playing 6. Unless it's a rare super hedge week play less than 6 👍

    Thanks for the info! Lol I know I'm stupid (sorry 😂), but what do you mean by hedge week? Also, if I leave some screens open like you're suggesting, will I get to keep that extra money for the next weekend round? Or do I start back up again from $1,000? I did change my selection; is that a stronger bracket than my last one? Thanks so much!

    Hedging is the idea that instead of trying to play a riskier lineup, you play a lineup with little chance of being the best lineup, but in most scenarios will be close to the best lineup. Some people do it, others don't.


    On the money-every week you get 1000 dollars, regardless on how much you spend the previous week.


    What's your current lineup, if I may ask?

    Okay, hedging seems complicated, I won't do it right now 😂


    Oh okay I thought you saved up or something lol


    My current lineup is Fri Sat Sun Captain Marvel, 2 Alita's, 1 Isn't It Romantic, and 1 Fighting With My Family

    I think Vince Lombardi said it best when he said, "You win some, you lose some. And sometimes you kick yourself because you had the PC but changed it at the last minute. But remember you live to fight another week"

    I see you have been rather vocal here being so new, That is great btw. So many new people don't speak up and get frustrated. We have this little group called the Resistance that will help you get better, quicker. If you have any interest in joining let me know. You can also find how to on the new player thread I believe.
