so if more than 8 teams sign up you get the rest huh? Sounds shady.

What if 32 sign up. Possible 1600$ pot yet you only give 1/4 to the winning team.

You should give 80% to the teams and 20% to your organization.

Keeping 20% of the pot on a tournament of this scale seems a bit... well, "shaky" to be honest.

I doubt they get 8 or more teams, so there will probably be some overlay.
