"Beat the Street" stock-picking game, and already two players have more than doubled their initial worth.

Now leading the way are Park92127, at $229,891.69, and blacktatoo99 at $203,059.41.

All players start the game, which began Monday, with $100,000 of fictional money. They then use the funds to buy and sell stocks throughout the trading day. The contest runs for two months, and the winner at the end will take home $100,000 in prize money.

Just behind in third place is HScott, with $190,290.41, followed by aceyswife, at $184,274.96.

The market has been up all three days this week, but needless to say, the gains of the "Beat the Street" leaders dwarf those of Wall Street overall. On Wednesday, the

Dow Jones Industrial Average

rose 19.75 points to 12,530.05, and the

Nasdaq

tacked on 8.36 to 2458.69.
