Pool Comments · Comment Board
Mike (Apr 27): Email sent with the payout calcs, payouts all sent out - 15 different entries! Thanks all for playing!
Mike (Apr 25): beave44 won the overall by 5! Then it was a very tight race for 2nd place, Sabers2316 takes it by 1 over One Fish.
Mike (Apr 25): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Apr 25): Space4leafs wins the final week just edging out clintitans by a goal on the tie-breaker.
Mike (Apr 17): beave44 scores 14 for 14 right, and in the driver's seat for the overall, up by 3 with one week to go. I am working on the NHL Playoffs pools today.
Mike (Apr 14): A lot of early games this week.
Mike (Apr 14): Three-way tie last week. It is like I need a second tie-breaker for some of you.
Mike (Apr 14): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Apr 3): I've been slacking updating our winners list. This week Sabers2316 edged out Moir on the tie-breaker. In the overall, beave44 is 4 points up on Elion7 and Sabers2316. Three weeks to go!
Mike (Apr 3): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Apr 2): Penguins at Avalanche 3:00 start, that should be a good game.
Mike (Mar 20): beave44 with the weekly win! And JERJER the prior week, which I forgot to mention.
Mike (Mar 19): A lot of early games today, get your picks in!
Mike (Mar 13): I was in the running but got bit on the two late games.
Mike (Mar 12): I figured out the payouts so far, and we haven't had a single person win two different weeks on their own. The highest any one individual has won so far is $35. If anyone would like their payout now then I can do that, but given the small amount I'd rather do it after the end of the pool. Email me if you like. Maybe this is my week!
Mike (Mar 11): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Mar 9): I usually payout this pool at the end, but the pools aren't usually this long! Let me put it on a list to square up with people next week.
Space4leafs (Mar 6): when do you pay the weekly wins just wondering in case there's a mix-up online
Mike (Mar 6): 8 of 10 right for Rompapalle to win the week. At least I hit the tie-breaker exactly ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Mike (Mar 1): No ties! Space4leafs with the weekly win, on the tie-breaker by a goal. I took a shot on Vegas and Islanders to upset the late games, and... no.
Mike (Mar 1): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Feb 21): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Feb 21): More ties, two of the same people. Thankfully there are more games on the schedule this Saturday.
Mike (Feb 15): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Feb 13): Bah, why did I pick Ottawa?!? Or, should have gone 1 higher on the tie-breaker instead of 1 lower.
