2015 Scotties Pool
Teams (just place the ranking beside and leave the teams in the order):
Feb. 23rd ... IT'S ALL OVER! And the winner is Scott Deck! He
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
to date the daughter of a 14-time Brier participant, 2-time winner,
champion, Olympic gold medalist and TV curling analyst.
Next we have a three-way tie for 2nd place, so they will split the
third place prize money, each taking home $34.67. Congrats to
and Team Astonishing!
Finally, we have the Burrows Brothers Award (or did we rename it?
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.
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. 18th... Standings after the Tuesday night draw:
Standings after Day 3 (Monday):
Feb. 17th, 2015 ... Hello all... Scotties started on Saturday. We
have 27 paid entries. Check your picks for
accuracy. Spreadsheet is here.
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. You must rank
the eventual relegation winner as one
2b. Your score is determined
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.
