    pabonaparte (53)

    According to the rules below, it seems that if 55 or more points are scored, the finishing order is as follows:

    andyjc712 (55)
    pabonaparte (53)
    daneblazer (52)

    If the game lands on 53 or 54:

    pabonaparte (53)
    daneblazer (52)
    andyjc712 (55)

    If the game lands on 52:

    daneblazer (52)
    pabonaparte (53)
    andyjc712 (55)


    If 51 or fewer points are scored:

    andyjc712 (55) and 5-0
    pabonaparte (53) and 4-1
    daneblazer (52) and 3-2 on five-star picks

    I would like to make certain the primary tiebreaker is the # of points scored, not five-star picks record. Additionally could you confirm that andyjc712 (not myself) places higher in case Alabama covers -6 and the game goes under 51 points. The final pick is not a kind of secondary tiebreaker is it?
    For users who are tied in contest units:

    First tiebreaker: # of points scored. Closest without going over wins.

    Final tiebreaker: # of 3* wins. If still tied, prizes split.

    As it is each of the top half contestants has one less entry to worry about. Which is great.

    It is also great most of my competitors picked Clemson!
    All contestants received a PM collecting the pick titled: NCAA Bowl Contest: MANDATORY 4* PICK & Tiebreaker REQUIRED

    It was also listed in the contest announcement thread, and standings thread.

    Thanks for the good luck...although I’ve hedged pretty heavily so that I come out $1000 ahead either way.

    Hopefully I can find time this year to make it to the WSOP to let my winnings ride.

    sportsfun is a VETERAN poster of all of the main gambling forums. He usually plays in a lot of post up contests across the street. It is a shame that he forgot.

    I didnt post my pick because i was out of contention to win anything and thought that I would just save SBR some time in grading

    Looks like Barking Toad hit this clean. Clem and he called 60pts. I think the Toad will finish 9th.

    damn that's rough, it's good first place didn't get beat by a forced pick that is worth too much but 2nd and 3rd got crushed.

    After 15 picks, one pick pushed 2nd back to tiebreakers for 9-12th lol and 9th place is cutoff for winnings. Ouch, looks like he got 11th after tiebreakers.



    just another example of how final pick is worth too much.

    It does seem like the last pick is worth too much.... but look at it this way... if Alabama would of won... a lot of people had an opportunity to leap ahead. Guess it brings more excitement to the final finish?
