Scotties Final Results:
1st - Texas T-Line - $156
2nd/3rd - Tie: Baron - $52
Troy - $52
Last Place Award: Deb - $10
Feb. 7th... 11:30am. The round robin is over and it appears we
have a winner! It looks
like pretty much everyone near the top took Team Canada as their top
pick, so the playoffs
will not affect the standings. So...
Showing that at least one of the Clark brothers knows something about
curling, Scott wins
this, only the second pool he has ever entered. BTW, he also won
the first pool he ever
entered! There hasn't been a run like this in the pools since the
early days when Pat Simmons
was cleaning up, but I'm pretty sure we've never had a back to back
winner. Of course, there
will be some controversy as to whether this constitutes a back-to-back
win, since Scott didn't enter
the womens Roar of the Rings pool. Anyway, nice job. I
wonder if the UIGEA
will allow the
Texas T-Line to collect. :)
Tied for second we have the Baron Schmidt and T-Roy Robinson.
They will split 2nd and 3rd place
money equally. Congrats gentlemen!
The prize for last place isn't wrapped up just yet. Deb sits at
the bottom and has Team Canada, so will get 6 points if Team Canada
wins it all. So will everybody else, except Scott D. and Lesley
who sit exactly 6 points ahead of Deb in the standings. Scott has
AB while Lesley has MB, so if either of those teams LOSE the 3-4 game
(I haven't checked into who's playing in what yet) then they will not
get any bonus points and Deb has the potential to tie them (if Canada
wins), in which case there would be no last place award (the money
would go back in the main prize pool). Confusing, I know.

Feb. 3rd, 2014 ... Hello all... Scotties started
yesterday. We have 27 paid entries. Check your picks for
accuracy. Spreadsheet is HERE.
Teams (just place the ranking beside and leave the teams in the order):
BC: Van Osch
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.
