2015 Hurling Championship Pools

Postby Toxicity234 » Tue May 05, 2015 1:54 pm

Not sure if there would be any interest.

But put up the rules and see if we can get a bit of a pool going for the Championship.

I'm starting it a week late.


Everyone's welcome to compete and the rules are similar to those used in the NHL pools competitions. To those not familiar with the rules, they are as follows:

1. Each Monday I will post up the fixtures for the coming week and by Tuesday or Wednesday I should have the league table of posters and points for the previous week just gone.

2. Late comers will be accepted but points will be forfeited for any games missed.

3. Predictions will be accepted and valid by throw-in time of the first game of the weekend.
Eg. This weekend, the first game throws in at 1pm on Saturday so predictions made for this game after this time won't be counted.


4. The points system I am using is pretty much the same as that used in the NHL pools. You get 2 points for predicting the winner of the game.
Should a poster predict within 2 points of the winning margin,that poster will receive 1 bonus point.
Should a poster predict a draw,the poster will receive 3 points and where a poster predicts a team to win but the result is a draw,the poster will get 1 point ONLY if the poster has predicted a winning margin of no more than 2 points.
I'll award one point if a person predicts a draw yet the result is a 1 or 2 point win for either side.
Needless to say if you predict a team to win and they lose you get no points.

5. Bonus points will be awarded at the end of the championship for the following correct predictions:
Munster and Leinster Champions.
All Ireland Champions and Runnners Up
Team relegated to Christy Ring
