Re: $50 and $250 March Madness pools (134 and 45 entries last year)

lol in the $1000 pool with 201 entries, I have WVU > UNC... along with THREE other people, fml.

Of the six people who have WVU, all of us have identical E8s

I thought it was gonna get like 100, so went more conservative. There's only 1 SMU and 1 Purdue and 1 Oregon, no Virginia/Florida/Wichita/FSU etc

My Kentucky > Gonzaga is looking pretty good though, only 1 other one of those.

Gonzaga > Lou not so hot either, three more of those, god damn I did bad in that pool

Anyone count up the # of champs in these two pools? It's annoying to do on yahoo cuz you can only do 25 at a time

Are both the 50 and 250 same scoring model?

St. Mary's and SMU Final 4 game, plz. Almost woke up early enough to put in a Florida or FSU bracket but didn't bother b/c I figured a 2er would already cover those. Astounded by very little subscription on some of these 3-6 seeds.

Yeah, so tilting I really thought it was gonna be like 100 people. The 2p2 50 one is 200 people and I have Purdue, WVU, Baylor and Oregon as my 4 winners

Have SMU in like 4 other brackets in bigger pools too, but completely botched the biggest one by far

Re: $50 and $250 March Madness pools (134 and 45 entries last year)

Crazy how that works. It's probably better to go more square in those larger buy in pools comprised of all gamblers like us.

The pool with my friends that are casual viewers out here in California, out of 130 people, over 50% are still perfect after 6 games because no upsets. The other supposedly tougher pools have more losses.

Haha you are right. Too early to judge on my part. We'll see at the end of the day vs percentage of faves winning.

Public was on Vandy so if Northwestern pulls this out, it should change. This is a dividing 8-9 matchup, whereas a 6 point favored Wisconsin is not typical 8-9 matchup that divides the field.

We all leveled ourselves and took Gonzaga. I counted like ~30-35 w/ Zags out of 200+ in the $50, so 15%.
