WCQ Pool Predictions (Round 2)

Recommended Posts

WCQ Pool Predictions (Round 2)

Correctly predict the semi-final records of the six countries that you think will qualify for next year’s Hex. As an example the following are my predictions:

---------------- W - D - L - GF - GA -- PTS

Canada ------ 6 -- 0 - 0 -- 6 --- 0 ----- 18

Cuba -------- 4 -- 0 - 2 -- 4 --- 2 ----- 12

El Salvador --- 4 - 1 - 1 -- 6 --- 3 ----- 13

Guyana ------ 4 -- 0 - 2 -- 5 --- 4 ----- 12

Guatemala --- 4 - 0 - 2 -- 5 --- 3 ----- 12

Antigua ------ 4 -- 0 - 2 - 5 --- 4 ----- 12

W - D - L - GF - GA ---- PTS

Group A -- 4 -- 0 -- 2 -- 05 -- 03 ----- 12 ---- Guatemala

Group A -- 4 -- 0 -- 2 -- 05 -- 04 ----- 12 ---- Antigua & Barbuda

Group B -- 4 -- 1 -- 1 -- 06 -- 03 ----- 13 ---- El Salvador

Group B -- 4 -- 0 -- 2 -- 05 -- 04 ----- 12 ---- Guyana

Group C -- 6 -- 0 -- 0 -- 06 -- 00 ----- 18 ---- Canada

Group C -- 4 -- 0 -- 2 -- 04 -- 02 ----- 12 ---- Cuba

(For alignment purposes, you may prefer to use the second format.)

Two points for each correctly predicted country.

One point for each correct win, draw, loss, goals for, goals against, and point prediction.

Maximum number of points possible is 48.

The entry with the most points wins a copy of my book, Westcoast Reign.

One entry per Voyageur.

Must be posted before September 1, 2012.

No edits may be made to posts after August 31, 2012, or that entry will be discarded.

Good Luck.

Having had a day to examine the results of the first WCQ Pool Predictions, one of the features that stands out is how tightly bunched the majority of the field was at its conclusion. Only 4 points separated second from ninth place. Six entries, from fourth to ninth place were separated by only 2 points, and featured three pairs of entries that were tied in points with one another.

Because of the closeness of the first WCQ Pool Predictions, it seems quite possible that two or more entries in the WCQ Pool Predictions (Round 2) could end up with the same total number of points at its conclusion. If that indeed turns out to be the case, who would be declared the winner of the book?

In order to come up with a solution to this scenario and at the same time encourage as many Voyageurs as possible to enter this contest, I have decided that in the event of multiple entries finish level on points for the lead, that the one which was posted first shall be deemed the winner. I therefore urge everyone to enter as early as possible, because you can alway still edit your predictions at a later time right up until the closing entry deadline of August 31, 2012.

With today being the final day to enter the “WCQ Pool Predictions (Round 2)” and the fact that it takes at least two contestants to have a competition, I have decided to enter my revised predictions and to close the contest at this time.
