OUR NRL tournament went down to the wire this round, with Monday night’s match between the Panthers and Roosters deciding who got the lion share of the $10,000 prize.

Chris Winter came out on top and got $2,500 thanks to the Panthers 20-16 win.
The 25-year-old had pushed chips in on Penrith at $1.60 and it was enough for him to finish ahead of 543 players.
And while he ended with great success, Winter started with three wipe outs.
In a bid to try and get off to a flyer, Chris took the unconventional step of backing the draw in the Manly and Parramatta game at Brookvale on Thursday night.
He didn’t get the result, so he spent another $10 on a re-buy and went again for the Cowboys and Rabbitohs match on Friday.
Again wasn’t close but he stuck solid with his approach and went again for the draw in the game between the Gold Coast and StGeorge-Illawarra.
Down three re-buys, Chris then backed Corey Oates as first try-scorer for Brisbane over Newcastle and he saluted at $5.
Now with a bank of $5,000 Bettabucks, he then took the Sharks at the line to beat Canberra.
They easily accounted for the Raiders and he now had $10,300 approaching Sunday’s game between Wests Tigers and Melbourne.
His main bet was on the Tigers to score more than 16 points at $1.78, which he had $10,000 on and the remaining $300 he had on the match finishing as a draw at the end of 80 minutes.
This time the draw lobbed and the Tigers scored 18, pushing his bank to $24,100.
From this position, he put his faith in the Panthers and they got the job done in a thrilling win over the Roosters.
There is once again $10,000 up for grabs in our NRL tournament this weekend.
It costs only $10 to enter and players get $1,000 BettaBucks to spend anyway they desire.
The draw was a favourite play of Chris Winter last week but it is hard to imagine there will be one between Brisbane and South Sydney on Friday night.
Brisbane are $1.17 favourites against the Rabbitohs, who are long outsiders at $5 on the back of a hugely disappointing match against North Queensland.
