If we end up doing 8 runners of 4 teams for the £50/£100 pools, is there any chance we can make it so the top 4 favorites are all on different teams? I'm fine if we don't do that and stick with it being completely random, but would prefer to maximize the chances of any sort of sweat.

Re: 2018 World Cup Random Pool - Any Running?

Yeh, we do have the numbers. I think.

Shall we do a £100 one.

If we get 8 people 4 teams each. Say we get 11, we can pair off teams via the current odds highest and lowest to make up the numbers for 2 teams each i.e brazil/Saudi, Germany/panama, Spain/Tunisia etc

That way it’s on regardless of whether we get 3 playing or 27?

Re: 2018 World Cup Random Pool - Any Running?

I'm in one where they try to allocate teams as evenly as possible based on odds. If we have 8 people, it would be difficult since a few teams are >12.5% to win. Something like

Team 1 - Brazil
Team 2 - Germany
Team 3 - France
Team 4 - Spain
Team 5 - Argentina/Denmark/Sweden/Costa Rica/Korea/Tunisia
Team 6 - Belgium/Poland/Mexico/Switzerland/Peru/Iceland
Team 7 - England/Croatia/Russia/Senegal/Egypt/Australia/Morocco/Panama
Team 8 - Portugal/Uruguay/Colombia/Serbia/Nigeria/Japan/Iran/Saudi Arabia

This would be if we only payout Winner/Runner-up.

I'd rather split prizes than a winner take all, but different to the £25's.

Re: 2018 World Cup Random Pool - Any Running?

Posting before I read the thread.....if I get England, I don't want it.

All proceeds sent to OAFK's very helpful charity if I got the bastards.
