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 I'm wrong):
- 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!

BC:  Morris
AB:  K. Koe
SK:  Laycock
MB:  Stoughton

ON:  Balsdon
PQ:  Menard
NB:  Gratton
NS:  Murphy

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, 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 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.
