Well clearly Tommy Salo enjoyed his Christmas turkey this year, cuz he came flying out of the gate. He scored a whopping 17 bonus points this week to garner our high score. Hansome had a good week too, and jumped back into 1st in the overall standings. Good week all around guys
Tommy Salo 12+17=29, season total 146

Acallabeth 13+8=21, season total 132
Jaco 14+3=17, season total 144

Well Jaco had a monster week, wracking up 33 points to jump out into the overall lead. He tied for most correct picks with 14, and then crushed with 19 bonus points, including two exact guesses. Nice work! Hansome had a nice week too, but fell a point back of Jaco in the overall standings. Things are heating up down the stretch. All star weekend coming up!
Jaco 14+19=33, season total 177

Hey guys, first off let me apologize. I didn't realize the format for the ASG had changed this year, so the bonus questions for that game are moot, and no points will be awarded. I don't feel too bad though, as none of you knew about it either or I'm sure you would have pointed it out to me
Anyways, Jaco did not have a solid week with his picks, but nailed the bonus questions to increase his lead. Only other person to get bonus points this week was Tommy Salo.
Jaco 4+12=16, season total 193
Hansome 8, season total 184
Tommy Salo 7+3=10, season total 179
Go Donbass 10, 170
Acallabeth 8, season total 162
Well week 19, and Jaco is starting to run away with it. He had his second 30+ point week of this half. He had a remarkable 17 correct picks and 14 bonus points. Everyone picked well this week and managed some bonus points, except for poor Hansome who was unable to get his picks in this week.
Coming down to the home stretch of the regular season. I'll run a playoff version of this as well. If you have any ideas on how we can do it, just send them my way.
Jaco 17+14=31, season total 224
Tommy Salo 12+9=21, season total 200
Go Donbass 15+10=25, season total 195
Hansome 1, season total 185
Acallabeth 14+6=20, season total 182
I think every single game in play-off must be included. As rounds progress, gains would also increase. This way, predicting a Gagarin Cup game would be way more important than, let's say, predicting scores for an Metallurg-Admiral series. I think bonuses must be kept (and maybe enhanced, like predict the series winner or who will advance etc). Everything else is quite fine. I simply think that the reward must get more important as tournament goes on. First round games give 1pts but Gagarin Cup final games each give 4pts and such stuff...
I don't have a concrete idea but this is basically what I have in my mind for play-off. And maybe carry some of the regular season points to play-off so that infidels like me and Acallabeth won't go unpunished. Think of us like hockey teams. I mean, if you came last in KHL, you wouldn't be in play-off. Then why the guys with lowest amount of points should start equal with the ones who have the most? I mean, jaco must be in a more advantageous position than me when play-off pick 'em starts.
International break next week, so no pick 'em schedule. I have made a schedule for the last week and it will post it soon. There's lots of games in the last week, and lots of bonus games, so should be lots of opportunities for guys to make up ground or lose it as the case may be . Enjoy the week off guys.
So I have the week 20 results in, and Tommy Salo is our weekly winner. He tied with Jaco for most correct picks (15) and had a nice 9 bonus points. Acallabeth had a nice week too, with 11 bonus points to finish in second with 23 points. One more week after next and our second half champ will be crowned, and then it's on to the playoffs!
Tommy Salo 15+9=24, season total 224
Acallabeth 12+11=23, season total 205
Jaco 15+6=21, season total 245
Go Donbass 11+9=20, season total 215
Hansome 11+3=14, season total 199
