All-time money list

2015 Scotties Pool

Feb. 23rd ... IT'S ALL OVER!  And the winner is Scott Deck! He takes home
first prize in the amount of $156.  Congrats!  He may have had some high-end,
insider knowledge, but it's info available to anyone in the pool... who happen
to date the daughter of a 14-time Brier participant, 2-time winner, 2-time world
champion, Olympic gold medalist and TV curling analyst.

Next we have a three-way tie for 2nd place, so they will split the second and
third place prize money, each taking home $34.67.  Congrats to Baron, DBoe,
and Team Astonishing!

Finally, we have the Burrows Brothers Award (or did we rename it?  I forget)...

I had a bit of an error in my update after the round robin:  I listed Brian G.'s top
pick as Manitoba instead of Alberta.  (I must have looked at Brent G.'s top pick
by mistake.)  So, I hope I didn't get Will's hopes up cheering for Manitoba to win
instead of Alberta.  Anyway, the error is caught when I actually use the spreadsheet
to calculate the top picks and not my own eyes.  So, Brian retains his position at
the bottom and takes home $10 for his effort.  Congrats!
(Here is the final spreadsheet.)

Feb. 20th, 2015 ... 12:30pm ... The round robin is over but the pool still is up for grabs!
At the top we have a tie between Loud Mouth Soup and Mr. Deck-Howard.  However,
we still have the playoff bonus points to count and that will break the tie!  There's also
a chance that the glut of people tied for 3rd (Baron, DBoe, and Team Astonishing) could pass
one or both of the leaders (if Manitoba wins the final against Sask, I think this would be the
case).  I haven't looked at every permutation but you get the idea.  This should be one of
the most interesting playoff races we've had!

Feb. 20th .... one more draw to go!

Feb 19th, 9am ... standings after last nights draw.  Mr. Deck-Howard pull back into the lead...

Feb. 17th, 2015 ... Hello all... Scotties started on Saturday.  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):

CAN:  Homan
BC:  Knezevic
AB:  Sweeting
SK:  Lawton
MB:  Jones
ON:  Hastings
PQ:  Mann
NB:  Robichaud
NS:  Arsenault
NFLD:  Strong
PEI:  Birt

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.  You must rank
the eventual relegation winner as one team.
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.
