The fifth edition of the popular Cash Is King real-money handicapping tournament returns at Premier Turf Club on the second Saturday of August. U.S. Licensed ADW Premier Turf Club (BetPTC.com) is offering up $4,000 in seeded cash prizes for the contest which is held over eight Saturdays, August 10 through September 28.

As with the previous Cash Is King tournaments, there is no entry fee to participate, and since it's a real-money contest, in addition to any prizes, members keep whatever they win in their account.

The Cash Is King contest at BetPTC.com takes away the inequities of traditional handicapping tournaments and lets handicappers play how they want, on the tracks they want, and best of all, with a very small, minimum amount of wagering.

The Tournament Director for the event is veteran contest player Rich Nilsen, who in 1999 created the first-ever online qualifier for the National Handicapping Championship (NHC). Nilsen also managed the online tournaments at the leading horseracing sites Brisnet.com and TwinSpires.com for several years.

"This contest is unique in that it is designed to emulate normal play," said Nilsen. "Horseplayers can wager like they do on any other Saturday and their performance will count towards the tournament scoring. If they don't do well on any given Saturday, chances are that low score will be thrown out."
