Last year, the top bid was for Geir Helgemo & Tor Helness. The norwegian-monegasque pair was sold for 35,000 Euros. The second top bid was 30,000 Euros, for Agustin Madala & Giorgio Duboin. Geir & Tor are the top ranked pairs, thus buying them is obviously very expensive. Good deals often come from the outsiders : they are usually “cheap” and can provide an astronomic gain. That was the case of Nick Fitzgibbon & Adam Mesbur, winners of the 4th edition. They had to “buy” themselves for 5,000 Euros. By the end of the week, the amount turned into 134,500 Euros.
