Arrow *** 2021 HSNL March Madness Squares Pool ***

This OP will always contain the latest information.



--
What is this?

A March Madness Squares Pool is a completely random, neutral EV sweat for every game of the 2021 NCAA Tournament. That's 63 independent sweats for the price of one, so yeah it's pretty much the greatest thing ever. See previous pools to get a feel:

2021 Main Pool Second Chance Pool
2020 Main Pool Second Chance Pool
2019Main PoolSecond Chance Pool
2018Main PoolSecond Chance Pool
2017Main PoolSecond Chance Pool
2016Main PoolSecond Chance Pool
2015Main PoolSecond Chance Pool
2014Main Pool 
2013Main Pool 
2012Main Pool 
2011Main Pool 

Still confused? No worries, just ship your escrow and enjoy the ride. You'll catch on after the first couple games and I'll be posting the winners of each game as we go.

I'd highly recommend sending early to avoid any transfer limits we'll hit as we get closer to the tourney.

We're not reserving squares, it's first-come, first-served.

Like last year, we may run a second pool if this one fills up early.

Let us goggogogo...

The Fine Print:
  • Payouts are based on a game's final score. (not end of regulation)
  • There will be no refunds in this pool unless the entire tournament gets cancelled. If games are cancelled or forfeited, we'll distribute that game's funds to previous winners. (details to follow)
  • There are no payouts for the "First Four" play-in games.
  • When two teams match up in the tournament with the same seed, we'll use the NCAA Selection Committee's ranking of all 68 teams to determine which team is on the favorite line and which is the underdog.
    1. Gonzaga
    2. Baylor
    3. Illinois
    4. Michigan
    5. Alabama
    6. Ohio St.

  • This pool is mostly first come, first served, meaning we're closed when 100 squares are paid for. However non-hsnl regs or guys who are high maintenance may get bumped from the pool.
  • To save time I'm going to pass on any 'label each of my squares different' requests this year, and ask everyone with shared action to manage your own individual squares totals and payouts. Since both the grid and numbers lines are randomized, I'd suggest that "YourName 1" is your top-left most square, and so on.
  • RULES ADDENDUM FOR FORFEITS OR CANCELLATIONS
    1. If a single game is cancelled or forfeited, that game's payout will be awarded on the next game upstream in that branch of the bracket. Payout will be based on the halftime score instead of final score.
    2. If the tournament gets cancelled mid-round, all remaining payouts will be evenly distributed to game winners in that current round of the tournament.
    3. If the tournament gets cancelled in between rounds, all remaining payouts will be evenly distributed to game winners in the previous round of the tournament.
    4. If the tournament gets cancelled before starting, all entries will be refunded.
  • Check your squares and post or PM if you spot any errors on the grid or payout tables in the OP. Payouts will start 48 hours after tournament ends to give everyone a chance to catch my mistakes. Payouts will ship in the same order as when your escrow was received: first in, first out. This usually takes 2-3 weeks to work through because of transfer limits. If you bink a square PM me how you'd like to be paid out, and send any info I'll need. We usually travel a bunch for games over the tournament so I may be out of touch but I'll eventually get caught up.
