What does the "$5 on each 25, one money" mean on this option?
So if you shoot the first 25 straight you win $68.00? and only 29 competitors (that played this option) shot the first 25 straight?

EVENT #24 GRAND AMERICAN HANDICAP (100 targets)
OPEN OPTIONS
$5 on each 25, one money ................................. $20


25’s –$20 entry, split 100% each 25

1st 25--------Score-------Winners-------Paid
-----------------25------------29--------$68.00

Total Entries – 395
Total Purse - $7900.00
Total Each 25 - $1975.00

You are correct in your interpretation. The "one money" means that only a 25 will get paid. If they said split 60/40% then the 25's would split 60% and the 24's would split 40% of the option money for that sub event of 25 targets.

You are correct, you paid $20 for the option. $5.00 goes toward each 25(sub event). The 1 money means they only pay the top score. If no one had run a 25. Then they would have paid the 24s.

Only 69 of those that played the option ran the 1st 25 and got paid $68.00.

The first 50 would comprise of the 1st and 2nd 25, the 2nd 50 would comprise of the 2nd and 3rd 25, and the 3rd 50 would comprise of the 3rd and 4th 25.

Don't cut yourself down. We all need to know how the options are figured so we can make a decision of whether to play some or all of the options at an event. More confusing were some of the options in years past that were figured using a "high gun" system instead of a percentage system. The percentage system is much easier to understand. Sometimes it's still a mystery of how the Lewis is figured - so all you need to know is if you break the high score, you'll hit the Lewis. Under that high score, you can still hit it with a mediocre score - taking some pain out of shooting that mediocre score-------.

Some of the others that are confusing are the ones listed as one money each 5 entries. The percentages that are ties divide versus percentages that are high gun can be confusing. Or the Jackpot Lewis but there is a good explanation of it in the grand program.

I never realized trap shooting had so much gambling in it. I use the term gambling very loosely and mean no harm or disrespect here. I am just starting to understand the Lewis purse, and now this. It reminds me of my days in the pool hall and all of the side betting that went on. I have read through the the ATA rule book but must have missed the part about the money. Is there a trap shooting for dummies that explains all of this? Or do you just pick it up as you go along?
Come on Sept 1st.

I have a PDF copy of the old Remington Trap and Skeet Money Division bulletin. It explains in detail most the popular purses and options. Send me a PM with your email address and I'll forward it to you.
