Fantasy Countdown (will contain series 77 spoilers)

Post by Martin Hurst » Wed Dec 06, 2017 11:15 pm

Let's give this a try!!!

For each of the seven games in the Series 77 finals, you give an answer of “higher” or “lower” in terms of the winning margin quoted – if you get your prediction right, you score 1 point per point you are right by, if you get it wrong, you score zero points.

For example, the winning margin stated in the first quarter final is Tom to beat Greame by 49 points. If your answer is “higher” and Tom wins by 60 points, you will score 11 points (60 – 49 = 11). If your answer was “lower”, you will score zero points.

If Tom beats Greame by 40 points, if your answer is “higher” you will score zero points, if your answer is “lower” you will score 9 points (40 – 49 = -9)

If Greame beats Tom by 5 points, if your answer is “higher” you will score zero points, if your answer is “lower” you will score 54 points (-5 – 49 = -54)

The winner is the person who has accumulated the most points after the grand final!

For the lowdown of the finalists, please see http://www.c4countdown.co.uk/viewtopic. ... 54#p174309

The quoted winning margins are..........

Code: Select all

Quarters:

Game 1: (1) Tom Chafer-Cook v (8) Graeme Staples - Tom to win by 49 points
Game 2: (2) Bradley Horrocks v (7) James Kennedy - Bradley to win by 38 points
Game 3: (3) John Cowen v (6) Michael Pfeffer - John to win by 14 points
Game 4: (4) Noel McIlvenny v (5) Eoin Jackson - Noel to win by 7 points

Semis:

Game 5: Semi final 1 - the better seeded player to win by 29 points
Game 6: Semi final 2 - the better seeded player to win by 26 points

Final:

Game 7: the better seeded player to win by 16 points

Your entry should be posted in this thread and look something like this (as an example):

Game 1: HIGHER
Game 2: LOWER
Game 3: HIGHER
Game 4: HIGHER
Game 5: LOWER
Game 6: HIGHER
Game 7: LOWER

One entry per person please, and for anyone who knows what happens in the finals, please do not enter or spoil it for anyone else!!!! Only entries made before 2pm on Thursday 14th December will be valid.

Results will be updated daily.

Hope this all makes sense - any questions, please ask!!!

Good luck :)

Oh yeah, small inquiry here -- what happens if one of the predictions is neither higher nor lower, but exact? For example, what happens if Tom beats Graeme by exactly 49 points in Game 1?
