MLB Pick 30 - Phase I - jjgmyers wins

Unread postby swerb » Thu Mar 04, 2010 11:00 pm

Probably my favorite pool that I play in. The premise is simple. Over about a 50 day period you have to pick each of the 30 MLB teams to win one game. 20 pass days. No more than one selection a day. 30 selections in total, each MLB team one time. Most wins takes down the kitty, winner take all.

This is a very fun pool. A lot of fun, excitement, and smack talk for 30 bucks. We run three phases each season. Each last about 50 days with a couple week break between phases. Last year most players threw in an additional $30 for the entire year most wins side bet.

Here are the winners from the last two years:

2008 Phase I - Lead Pipe 21-9
2008 Phase II - Lead Pipe 23-7
2008 Phase III - Swerb 24-6

2009 Phase I - Bill Henry 22-8
2009 Phase II - Lead Pipe 23-6
2009 Phase III - Swerb 21-9

OFFICIAL RULES

Phase I will last 49 days. Starts on Monday, April 5th, 2010. Last day of selections will be Sunday, May 23 2010.

Pick one baseball team each night to simply win their game. You cannot pick the same team twice. And you have to select all 30 teams in baseball one time.

Contest lasts for 49 days. So seeing as how you need to pick every team in baseball one time and one time only, there will be 19 days you don't pick a game. Use those PASS days wisely when there is no strong selection amonst the teams you have left to use. All picks must be time stamped, in this thread, no later than the official start time of the game per MLB.com or else the pick is thrown out. While you don't have to post your picks until the start time of the game you are selecting (example: can post a pick for a 10:05 PM EST game at 10:01) ... you cannot change a posted pick once the days first game is underway. If your team is rained out, you get a PASS for that day and have to select that team for another game in the future.

The winner is the person with the most total wins after the Sunday, May 23 games end. Winning % means nothing. Most total wins. If two people are tied at the end, and one is 22-8, and another is 22-7 (say due to a day #49 rainout) ... that is still a tie. Only category that means anything is total wins.

If everyone makes all their picks, each entrant will have picked exactly 30 games, each team in baseball one time, over a 49 day period. $30 per player, winner take all.

The tiebreaker, once we get there, and if we need it ... will be to pick the winners of every baseball game on the last day of the contest, Sunday, May 23. And note - May 23 is both the final day of the contest, AND the tiebreaker day. Any competitors who could potentially be involved in a tie will have to pick the winners of all 15 games that day. And also identify their final Pick 30 selection, if they still have one pick left to make. The second tiebreaker, if needed, is total runs scored by all the teams you selected to win in the final day tiebreaker. Third tiebreaker would be run differential.

Dead Money- refers to money put in the pot by players who are still legally eligible to win it, but who are unlikely to do so because they are unskilled, increasing the expected return of other players.


:lmfao:

Just playing Greg. I had to. I feel like it's almost an obligation.

Next time you should watch out who you call dead money (although entirely true).

You don't get to #9 on the leaderboard by making your own picks... You get there by forcing your bad luck onto another's picks and watching them crash and burn. A free lesson to all you newbs out there.

My cuz (FightDr) in for the yearly bet.

As a reminder, yearly bet is an additional $30. Most wins, all three phases. Don't need the annual bet $30 till later in the year.

Right now, Phase I stands at 21 players, $630 to the winner. Can't freaking wait for baseball season. Three fantasy teams, Indians, Nats, Pick 30, my general gambling habit ... the MLB Package. Nothing better than the feeling of having the kids in bed, windows open in the house, cold beer in hand, and clicking from baseball game to baseball game on any random spring or summer weeknight.
