2014 Brier Pool
March 11th .... It's
all over! This was probably the tightest pool race ever with it
all riding on the playoff outcome.
In first place, we have inDeaneous who finally contributes to the
Clark-brother domination of this pool season. Dean gets $162 for
his efforts. Amber takes home second place and $81, while Brent
gets 3rd and the $27 that goes along with it. In last place is
the big winner from the Olympic trials pool, Scott D., who will get his
$10 entry fee refunded.
March 7th, 2pm ... The
round robin is over. The standings are below. I've added
in each persons top pick (please verify I have done this correctly) and
colour-coded the selections.
So, if my calculations are correct, I think (and please correct me if
- If Manitoba wins the final, then B. Diddy gets first, and D. Owens
and myself tie for 2nd/3rd.
- If Alberta wins the final, then D. Clark wins and 2nd/3rd depend on
how Manitoba does but Amber probably at least ties for 2nd, possibly
with B. Diddy.
- If BC wins, the B.Diddy or D. Clark probably win, depending on who
gets 2nd place and Malcolm probably ends up in 2nd or 3rd.
In other words ... it's
still too early to tell who's going to win!
March 4th, 2:30pm ...
Standings after draw 8:
Hello all, we have 28
paid entries. Please check your picks below. Spreadsheet is here. Good luck!
The teams are:
AB: K. Koe
Y/NWT: J. 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
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
or 1 point if your top ranked team places 3rd in the playoffs.
The playoff points are for your
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, if they finish above Lady Random.
The $10 will
be taken off the
total prize money before the above percentages are calculated. In the case of 40
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,
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
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.
