Fellow Members of Black Sails - You're Invited to Survival Pool!

Recommended Posts

I've been running this for the last bunch of years. Quest For Survival - despite the ominous name in this crazy year!

C'mon in and sign up -

Pool Rules

Number of games per week required to pick: 1

Game Style
Suicide/Survivor Style - One loss (or tie) and you're knocked out!  You CANNOT pick the same team twice.  This game lasts until the end of the regular season - or until there is a sole survivor. If a sole survivor is determined early enough (per discussion) in the NFL season, pool entrants will be asked if they want to start fresh with another entrance fee and start up the pool again.

Point spreads are NOT used scoring picks. All picks should just be the game winners by the final score

No weights/confidence values are used in this pool.

Monday Night Football Tie-Break
This pool does not use a Monday Night Football Tie-Break

WIN = 2 points, TIE = 1 point, LOSS = 0 points
However, scoring has no bearing on winning/losing the pool.

The final standings will be calculated using the total points from ALL weeks.

Pick Deadline
NEW RULE CHANGE!!! The weekly pick deadline is now Monday at 8pm (Eastern). For selecting games earlier in the week, you must select that game prior to the scheduled kickoff of that game. This now allows those who forgot to get their pick in earlier to at least possibly make a pick in the pool for that week.

Entry fee for the pool is 25 "units". The owner who has successfully achieved the Quest for Survival (hence, the last one standing), will receive the total of all entry "units" less 20 "units" to be delivered to the website provider.

If everyone is knocked out early enough, we will pole everyone to see if we will re-start up again during the season.

Deadline for entry fee is 5pm (Eastern) 9/9/20 (1st Kickoff is 9/10/20). My address is 534 Sperry Blvd. New Hyde Park, NY 11040 for snail mail. For Paypal, use hjltax_at_aol.com (replacing "_at_" with "@"). Send as a gift and don't mention Pool, etc. in the payment. You can also VENMO me. Use @Howard-Leeds.  Let me know your Pool Host nickname for the pool w/ the payment.
