All-time money list

Monday, March 16th, 2009.  It's all over and Rusty comes from behind to win, ending his infinite-year drought in the pools.  Yes, he'll tell you he has won in the past, but that was pre-chube pool days.  Kind of like winning the xfl title... does anyone even remember if there was one?  Rusty gets $150 for the win.
Barb and DBoe tie for second and will split 2nd and 3rd place prize money to take home $50 a piece.  Barb is now 1 for 1 in cashes, while DBoe is 2 for 17 or so.  The Dezotell's take home the $10 prize for last place.  The all-time money list has been updated.

That's all for this year.  Congrats to Benny for holding down #38 on the altime money list! ... and for that other little thing... winning the Brier!  Congrats to Big Daddy Ackerman and Colleen for taking home the provincial mixed title.  I've said it before, the road to success begins with chube's curling pool.  So parents, if you want your kids to be successful someday, start them gambling in my pool at an early age.


Tuesday, March 10...

Monday, March 9th, 10pm....  WOW, wow, wow, wow!  What a heartbreaking loss for Team Sask.  Unbelievable.  At least they're clearly playing better.  Keep plugging away guys.  The wins will follow.

Well, I'm back in Regina after 3 days of fun in Calgary.  Apparently there was a small problem
with the spreadsheet.  DBoe had rated BC as a 5 and I entered it as a 6.  As well, I have corrected
the link to the spreadsheet below.

Thursday, March 5th ... The Brier starts on Saturday, but I'm heading out tomorrow morning for Calgary, so the deadline to enter has passed.  We have 26 entries, which is the same number
as we had for the Scott, despite losing 4 players who think it's more fun to PLAY in the Brier than
to participate in my pool.  Losers.  Haha, just kidding... good luck to Bitzy, Baron, Hick and Benny...
although Benny, curling with K-Mart, doesn't really need any extra luck.

I have brought back Lady Random, who is an unpaid random drawing of the teams.  If you can't
beat this team you will be shamed.  :)

As I will be away for most of the Brier, look for updates on the message board.  (Here's the

Teams, rules, and results to past pools are below.



The teams are:

BC - Sean Geall
AB - Kevin Martin 
SK - Joel Jordison
MB - Jeff Stoughton
NO - Mike Jakubo
ON - Glenn Howard
PQ - Jean-Michelle Menard
NB - Russ Howard

NS - Mark Dacey
NF - Brad Gushue 
PEI - Rod MacDonald
Y/NWT - Jamie Koe

It is easiest for me if you just leave them in the same order and place
your ranking beside the name.

1.  Rank men's and womens teams separately (if applicable).
2a.  Give the team you feel will have the most wins a 12 and the least wins a 1.
2b.  Your score is determined by multiplying the ranking by the number of wins during the round
robin, and adding them up...  PLUS 6 points if your top-ranked team wins the final, 3 points
if your top-ranked team loses the final, or 1 point if your top ranked team places 3rd in the playoffs.
The playoff points are for your top-ranked team ONLY.  No points for your 2nd, 3rd, or lower ranked
teams making the playoffs.
3.  Entry fee is $10.
4.  Payout for each will be:  1st - 60%, 2nd - 30%, 3rd - 10%.  $10 will go to a person who
gets last place alone.  The $10 will be taken off the total prize money before the above percentages
are calculated.  In the case of 40 or more entries, the prize money will be 1st - 50%, 2nd - 25%,
3rd 15%, 4th - 10%.
5.  Results are based on round robin and playoffs only... tiebreakers are not included.
6.  Entry fee must be in my hands (or one of my associates) before the start of the 1st draw.
7.  You may email, fax, phone, drop-off, or use whatever method you wish to get your picks to me
but they will not be accepted after the start of the first draw.
8.  I will pick my rankings and email them to someone else before looking at any of your picks.
9.  I will post everyones rankings on this page after they are all received.
10.  Keep this page bookmarked for updates and results.
11. Ties:  If there is a tie for 1st or 2nd the prize money will be split equally.  If there is a tie
for 3rd place only, the tie will be broken to determine who will get 3rd place alone.  To break
the tie the top ranked teams for each person in the tie will be looked at.  First of all, person
with the top-ranked team that does better in the playoffs will be awarded 3rd place.   After
that the head to head round robin records will be taken into account.
For example, if person A ranked Sask as 12 and person B ranked Manitoba as 12, then
if Sask beat Man in the round robin person A would get 3rd place.  If they both had the same
team ranked as 12, then you would look at who they ranked 11, then 10, etc.
If more than 2 people are tied for third, then the same scheme is used but you may have to
eliminate people one by one.  For example, if person A and B picked Sask as 12, and person
C picked Man as 12, then if Sask beat Man in the round robin person C is eliminated and we
look at who A and B rated as 11.  If Manitoba beat Sask in the round robin then person C would
get 3rd place.
I hope that made sense to you, it does to me.  If you want more explanation please let me know.
12.  No entry will be accepted after the start of the first draw.
