Need to take into account contest starting amount?

I find this contest exciting and engaging but it seems to me that the amount one starts the contest with at the beginning of the week needs to be factored into the calculation of the profitability percentage. Here is what I have observed. The smaller the amount one starts the contest with, the better their chances of winning by a greater percentage. In other words, one who starts the contest on $1 has a better and quicker chance of getting to 100% by just adding another $1 to the starting amount…

Whatever the rules are, one needs to make the right decisions in order to win anyway.

Technically, with any size of starting deposit you need to perform the same trading to double the account. Whether you start with  $1 or $1000's. Let's say you trade EUR/USD with the maximum lot size possible. (Assuming leverage is 1/100) You need to make at least 230 pips to double the account with a single trade.

I think the minimum deposit of at least 1st reward is a good idea. That would eliminate "all or nothing" attempts which have nothing to do with real trading and consistent profitability.

If your account hits below 20 USD all positions are closed and your account blocked. So you need more than 20 USD in your account.  To be able to trade and keep your positions open during time you will always need at least more than 30 USD as deposit. It's not easy to survive and make money with smaller account. Doubling account and keep your chances going even when you lost your a couple trade is easier with greater account. It's all your choice, rules are simple and FAIR.

As I see from discussion in my opinion main idea of  this discussion is how to minimize "gambling" trading style when participating in the contest. I think the best way is to include requirement for drawdown (such requirement was used in Signal Provider contest), e.g. 25% (as was suggested by WallStreetBlog) and calculate drawdown on hourly basis.
