LF aka "Legendary Footballer" explains: "The legend goes that while on one of his infrequent foreign trips, Robin Hood landed on a small Mediterranean island, took out a ball from his bag, and noticed that it was not suitable for playing football. He then decided to return home to Nottingham. It is said that he dropped the ball there and that it was later found by some men in the 19th century, who declared it as a football. After the world had seen a century of football, a baby boy named "Martin" was born in a small town in Sweden. As there were many boys with the same name, he was called "Franke" in his neighborhood. Before growing up, Franke met Mau, a General. They grew up together and discovered poker together. It was Mau's idea to invent the cash game, but Franke didn't like it. You see, Franke always wanted to be special, just like he was special in childhood when nobody called him Martin. But with Mau by his side, Franke finally found a way to stand out - by inventing the Cash Game Challenge! I guess you could say Franke and Mau were like a winning hand in poker, they just fit together perfectly. However, it is important to note that this is just a legend and not a historical fact."

NSLF aka "Not So Legendary Footballer" explains: "The key to winning the Cash Game Challenge is to distract the opposing goalies with your good moves and charm - then score easy goals!".

Dear Players! Please also be noted that any observed manipulation with the intent of winning the Cash Game Challenge will result in disqualification from the game and the loss of any funds on the table.
