The NHL Hockey Pool stuff will be up by Sunday [I hope] but while I have the time, I thought I would start this thread for any questions some TTPers might have.

Here are a few basics:

The pool is a newspaper box-style selection format. 20 groups of 10 players to select from. You will have 12 forwards, 6 defensemen, and 2 goalies.

The cost will be only $20.

80% of the pot would go to the winner, 20% minus $25 for second place, and $25 for third. This is the exact same breakdown as last year.

Goalies will receive 0.05 points per save as bonus points and 'out' players will receive 0.25 points per penalty minute... it'll all be explained in further detail later and with the way the pool is set-up, you will be able to compare group choices based on this pool's point system (last year's NHL stats).

Also, for any lurkers interested in this pool, you will have to have a TTP Community account.

Last year we had 33 entrants with $495 going to the winner [Ballbaby], $145 to the runner-up [Captain Shamrock] and $25 going to third place [Jimmy Holiday]... more people entered means more money for the top 2.

That's enough for now... if you're gonna enter or at least thinking about it, please post here stating so. Let's shoot for at least 50 entrants this year...

Cheers,

~Regs.

HOS is IN, Try to do better than LAST year

I had the lead in the pool, for the first week last year, and then it all fell apart.
Looking for big changes this year.

The usual though hang on for a couple of days as I'm setting up some other payment "options"...

I will be going ONE better this year...

Last year we had 33 entrants with $495 going to the winner [Ballbaby], $145 to the runner-up [Captain Shamrock] and $25 going to third place [Jimmy Holiday]... more people entered means more money for the top 2.


That looks good but it is going to look better this year. The Captain will be cleaning up this year. Take that to the bank.

With the way your Willhill has been going lately and your NFL picks, the only thing that you can take to the bank Captain is that you ain't gonna win nothing.
