HOW TO PLAY:
Step 1:
Contestants must choose who they think the winning team will be for
each series in round 1 only (8 total), and must also guess the final
score of each series in that round (40, 41, 42, or 43).
Step 2:
Each contestant must also predict which team they think will win the
Cup along with their first round submission. This is a onetime
pick which acts as a wildcard in order to obtain extra points. Predicting
the correct Cup winner is worth 10 points. (see
points table below)
Each
contestant must then submit their picks via email to Anthony@mostlyliquid.com.
After the 1st round of the playoffs has ended (without predicting the
Cup winner again),
each contestant must then submit their picks for the next round (by
again picking the team who they think will win each series and predicting
each series score), and so on and so forth.
In Round 4 only, each contestant will submit the TOTAL amount of goals
they think will be scored between BOTH teams playing for the
Cup for the entire series. This is a onetime only pick which serves
as a tiebreaker after the competition has ended.
(see tiebreaker rules below)
____________________________________________________________________
DISQUALIFICATION:
Any participant who fails to submit any of their
picks correctly before the posted deadlines will be immediately disqualified
for that round. As mentioned above, all picks are to be sent via email
to Anthony@mostlyliquid.com.
____________________________________________________________________
SCORING:
The amount of points awarded for correctly picking a "winning
team" and "series score" increase proportionally with
each round due to the decreasing number of series played. (see
points table below)
If a player correctly predicts the winning team in a series, they will
receive the amount of "winning team" points designated for
that round. If a player picks the correct series score (e.g., 42 or
"in 6") of a series, they will also receive the "series
score" points designated for that round (see table below).

SCORING
SUMMARY:
In rounds 1, 2 and 3, a contestant can score a total of 16
points (per round) for picking the correct team(s) and a total
of 8 points (per round) for picking the
correct series score(s). In other words, 24 points
is the maximum amount of points you can score per round, for rounds
13.
The 1st Round "Cup Winning Team" pick is worth a total
of 10 points. The points awarded in Round
4 are; 12 points for the winning team,
and 6 points for the series score. This
allows for a possible total score of 100 points.
____________________________________________________________________
TIEBREAKER RULES:
If 2 or more players are tied for any position at the end of the tournament,
the 1st tiebreaker will be the difference in the total amount of predicted
team pics. The 2nd tiebreaker will be the total amount of series score
predictions. The 3rd tiebreaker
(if necessary) will be the closest prediction of TOTAL goals scored
between BOTH teams playing for the Cup in
the entire series
(This pick will be requested before the start of the 4th and final round
of the playoffs).
If the final tiebreaker between two or more players
comes down to total goals, the
player closest to the total amount of goals wins.
If two players submit the same amount of total goals with their 4th
Round pick, and they have a chance to tie after the Hockey Challenge is
over, I will personally ask them to submit a second number of total
goals to make sure that THERE ARE NO TIES.
