    Default Beyond 2011 F1 Pool Thread

    Well, getting close to being that time of the year again.. Figured I would start this thread early and give everyone who is interested some time to decide.

    Basically for everyone from last year, same deal as ever. $20 buy in (EmailMoneyTransfer or Paypal).

    I have advertised this pool on a forum for F1 2010 (video game) as well, in hopes of creating a larger pool of possible winnings. If I can get 30-40 people, there will probably be payouts to the top 4-5 places. I'll update the names of anyone interested over there to this thread.

    Im not sure what the rules are right now for new people signing up on beyond.

    Who's up for it?

    I had to start a new subleague as last years was linked to an email I don't have access to anymore.. Feel free to join: Beyond.ca F1 sub-league.

    Entry fees can be paypal'd or E.M.T'd to: [email protected]

    $20 buy-in + $0.88PP fee = $20.88 (via Paypal)
    $20 buy-in + $1.50 Bank fee = $21.50 (via Email Money Trasnfer)

    You give him $20, forget to make your picks and don't see your $20 ever again.

    ... Can't blame me for your memory, or lack of? lol.


    cycosis - I use www.F1toto.com for the pool with our own sub-league for beyond. Basically you have to submit your picks for each race. You make your picks after qualifying and once the race starts they are locked in (website does it automatically). The rest of the rules are on the website..

    We rely on results published by the official F1 organization. If this information is not available for some reason, then gppool.com will decide.

    Any adjustments to the official results (in connection with doping, etc.) that arise after gppool.com has updated the scoring will have no effect on the updated scoring. In other words: we will not adjust scorings.

    You can earn points for each of your predictions (No. 1-8). Points are calculated as follows.

    8 minus the absolute difference between the place value in your prediction and outcome.

    For example: Driver X in your forecast for the Australian Grand Prix at number 7 ends in this race as third.

    8 - | 7-3 | = 4 points

    Another example: Rider Y is in your forecast for the Chinese Grand Prix at No. 4 and finishes fourth in the Chinese Grand Prix:

    8 - | 4-4 | = 8 points.

    Last example: You placed Rider Z in your prediction for the European Grand Prix at No. 2 and he ends as eighth in the European Grand Prix:

    8 - | 2-8 | = 2 points.

    For each Grand Prix you can earn a maximum of 64 points.
    Total participants will dictate what positions will get payed out at the end of the season. Person(s) with the highest score after Abu Dhabi is the winner.

    Last year we were missing a few guys so the pot was smaller, and only payed out the Top 2 players (80/20 i think). However if I can get more guys in, the pot will be bigger and i can expand the pay out to possibly top 3-4, maybe even five if I could get 30-40 people in (unlikely, but trying to)

    Also, typically, you might be able to miss one race and still be in contention (if you haven't shit the bed in other races.. haha). But if you miss out on getting your predictions submitted more than twice you will probably be out of the top guys.

    So it does take some commitment to at least check out the quali results on a race weekend and make your picks.

    Nope.. there hasn't even been a post in the thread I made on the other forum... which is baffling considering it was started PURELY for the F1 2010 video game..

    Feel free to invite your friend!

    So I make an account at www.F1toto.com and join the Beyond.ca F1 sub-league? I then go to that website to make my picks for each race, correct?
