Break Type Definitions

 YOU WILL FIND A CLEAR DEFINITION FOR ALL THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF BREAKS BELOW:

  1. RANDOM: This is the most common form of a break. A random break will consist of as many spots as there are teams in the given sport. For example, Baseball has 30 teams, so any Baseball break will be a 30 spot random. When you purchase a spot in a random break you are buying a random team. Once all spots are filled all names and teams are entered separately into a randomizing program (most commonly used is random.org). Both the names and teams will be randomized 6 time, then matched to the corresponding spot. For instance, after the randomizing of both, John Doe is in spot 1, Jane Doe is in spot 2 and Buyer X is in spot 3. Using Baseball as a reference the Oriole's end up in spot 1, Yankees in spot 2, and Red Sox in spot 3. This would mean that John Doe receives the Orioles's, Jane Doe receives the Yankees, and Buyer X would receive the Red Sox and so on down the list of all 30 spots. Football has 32 spots, Basketball has 30 spots and Hockey has 30 spots.
  2. DRAFT STYLE: Draft Style breaks consist of as many spots as there are teams in the sport. Using Hockey as an example 30 spots would be available. Once all 30 spots are sold all names will be entered into a randomizing program (most commonly used is random.org). The names would then be randomized 6 times. The buyers name that is in the 1st spot gets to draft any team they like. Then the person in the second spot will draft whatever team that buyer wants, minus the team already drafted by the person in spot 1. The buyer in spot 3 will then draft any available team. This takes place until all teams are drafted.
  3. DRAFT A CARD: Draft A Card is the same as a Draft Style break with the difference being that all cards are opened and the buyers draft the cards. To do this the breaker will announce the amount of spots available for a particular product. Usually this will be the amount of cards or hits available in the allotted break. Once all spots are sold the breaker will enter all names of the buyers into a randomizing program (most commonly used is random.org). Then the breaker will open all packs/box's. Once all packs/box's have been opened the buyers will draft the card they want starting with the buyer in spot 1. This continues until all cards are drafted, with any extra cards going to the buyer in the last spot.
  4. DIVISION BREAK: This style of breaking allows the buyers to buy a random division of teams in the spot being broke. Using Basketball as an example, There are 6 divisions in the NBA. This means that 6 spots will be available. Once all 6 spots are sold all buyers names and NBA divisions will be entered separately into a randomizing program (most commonly used is random.org). The buyers name in spot 1 will receive the Division in spot one, the buyers name in spot 2 will receive the Division in spot 2. For example, John Doe is in spot 1 and Jane Doe is in spot 2. The Pacific Division is in spot one on the division random, and the Southeast is in spot 2. This means John Doe gets all cards from the Warriors, Clippers, Lakers, Suns, And Kings. Jane Doe would get all cards from the Nuggets, Timberwolves, Thunder, Blazers, and Jazz.
  5. LEAGUE/CONFERENCE BREAK: A League break is the same as a division break, just using the entire League, or Conference. For example, The NFL has 2 Conferences, The AFC and NFC. This means only 2 spots will be available for sale. Jane Doe buys one and John Doe buys the other. Both Conferences and buyers names are entered separately into a randomizing program (most commonly used is random.org). John Doe and the NFC are in spot 1 and Jane Doe and the AFC are in spot 2. John will get all cards in the NFC and Jane will get all cards in the AFC.
  6.  PICK A TEAM: This type of breaks allows the buyer to pick the team they want in a break. Using Football as a reference if you wanted the 49ers you could buy the 49ers if the teams has not already sold. This break would then be scheduled once all teams are sold.
