My score on PM is +5.46
I made 51 picks, my extra pick was a +2.54. +2.96 is my pre penalty total.

With deductions and penalties I should be at +2.71.

so, the old man kicked our asses, correct?

Redbuck I assume that 2+2 is the extent of your internet savvy and you don't do things like paypal or venmo, so where shall I USPS mail your $50 check to? I heard you're moving soon so perhaps the nearest zoo since they don't allow penetrate apes in retirement homes ;D

EDIT: $49.54 check because I'm charging you for the postage!

Re: Hunchcapping, eating contests, and general OOT betting/wagering discussion

Turkey Day Hunchers,

Sorry for the delay in updating, holiday weekend blah blah. Alright, here we go:

Turkey Day Hunchcappers,

-$50 or $100 entry, winner take most, second takes a little.
-All picks are on a new Pick Monitor account
-Post a link to your PM account itt before you start making picks
-All picks available on Pick Monitor are valid
-All picks are 1 unit picks so if it's a favorite you'll win less than that unit; an underdog you'll win more.
-All picks are between -200 and +300
-40 picks that START between Friday and Wednesday, END by Thanksgiving Day
-3 picks on Turkey Day NFL game 1
-3 picks on Turkey Day NFL game 2
-4 picks on Turkey Day NFL game 3

- penalties as outlined in the last few HCs. Basically don't risk anything other than 1 unit, don't bet both sides of the same game to burn picks (intentionally or not), don't make picks that are happening next month, picks with odds outside the range, etc
- any unused picks at the end will count as a 1 unit loss. Any picks over the 50 are voided and incur a penalty to avoid angling
- basically just stay within the spirit of the HC, don't fat finger your picks like Howard or become senile like redbuck, and you should be penalty free

Nat 50 -9.38 with two pending picks worth less than +2 units total
Samuri 100 -17.7!!!
El D 100 -12.4
Sak 100 4.01
Yak 50 -14.09 and 6 skipped picks for -20.09!!!
redbuck 100 5.83 (6.18 with 2 pending golf picks for .65 and .96)
oT 100 4.36
owster 50 4.90
GMLAW 50 -12.89
Howard 100 -22.51 WHOA THAT SUCKS
Soup 100 -8.07 with an extra pick
Bluff 100 2.71 (unfortunate he didn't have room left for his super sharp Adelaide 36ers pick!)
fu 100 -12.97

Current pay out to $50 entrants: $550 to first, $100 to second.
Current bonus pay out to $100 entrants: +$350 to first, +$100 to second

So if #1 person is $100 entry, they win $900.
If #1 and #2 are $50 entries they win $550 and $100, the highest ranked $100 entry wins $350, and second highest ranked $100 entry wins $100.

Nat, Yak, owster, GM: $50
samuri, Diablo, Sak, oT, Howard, Soup, Bluff, red, fuluck: $100

Re: Hunchcapping, eating contests, and general OOT betting/wagering discussion

Turkey Day Hunchers,

Unofficial results:

redbuck 1st place (based on his reporting of ungraded golf picks) $50 & $100 pools
owster 2nd place ($50 pool)
oT 2nd place ($100 pool)

oT, Sak (or random haters not in contention) - I've provided links to the top scores above, please take a look and let me know if you have any questions re: the final scoring. Would prob be good for someone to confirm the grading on redbuck's golf picks.

Once we have these standings confirmed, I'll post payment info.

Edit: all of owster's picks look legit. I'm confident in his +4.90 finish.

Edit: all 48 graded picks of redbuck's look good. Just need confirmation on proper grading of these two from someone:
11/19/16 4:39PM C. Smith vs R. Allenby
C. Smith -155
11/19 8:55am Risked 1 unit to win 0.65

11/19/16 5:45PM G. Ogilvy vs A. Baddeley
G. Ogilvy -106
11/19 8:55am Risked 1 unit to win 0.94

Edit: oT and Sak's picks all look legit.

I don't know how much it would materially affect results, if at all, but I'm not sure if the 11/19 refers to 11/19 here or Australia, so if it's the 2nd or 3rd round.

oT,

I have no clue, so we'll let the thread figure it out, and if necessary, wait until it's resolved by PM.

If either one of them is a confirmed win, then redbuck has this locked up.

It only matters if both are losers.

redbuck has two live picks that could lose him at most 2.0 units, right? If so, why isn't Fruit Saklad out of this entirely at this point?

owster is the only $50 entry remaining, El O El, so your "If #1 and #2 are $50 entries" condition doesn't make any sense. What happens if #1 is a #100 entry and #2 is a $50 entry and #3 is a $100 entry? Does the carryover for which the #2 finisher isn't eligible to get carry down to the third place overall, i.e. the second-place $100 finisher?

I suspect I'm missing something.

Howard,

As has been done like 9000 times before in these hunchcaps that you've participated in many times, that was the same text from the original rules pasted. Of course the prizes will be allocated accordingly based on actual results and buy-ins.

As for Fruity being included there, just stretch your feeble old mind for a second and think about the possibility of oT maybe having some error/penalty/etc.

Anyway, you are such a losing loser at this thing, I shouldn't even dignify your post with a response. LOOOOOOOOOL -22.51 units, what a joke.

oT,

Are you going to stand for this? Pretty soon, El O El is going to raise just the "possibility" of you being a racist.

I have no reason in the world to think that oT has a penalty at this point, so including Fruit Saklad was misleading.

I note that El O El didn't answer my question in his frenzy to accuse me of being a loser. I'm well aware that I finished this in last place, which of course was because I was behind and had to take a series of longshots to have any hope at all.

Howard,

What question? Was there some really dumb obvious question in there I didn't bother to answer?

Noone likes you or believes you are a lawyer. The only reason you are allowed to participate in these things is because you are 1000% dead money.
