Updates, etc. - Currently at @ 55-60 entrants and now is continuing to grow - Typically between 50+ to 75 entries / year. Pool's been in existence approx 10+ years.

 

Hoping you are well! Training camp is now in full swing and the pre-season games are starting. Time for everyone to gear up again. For the Quest for Survival, we are back for another campaign!!!

 
Best,

WELCOME TO THE QUEST FOR SURVIVAL - 2021
Pool Rules
 
Picks
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.
 
Spreads
Point spreads are NOT used scoring picks. All picks should just be the game winners by the final score
 
Weights
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
 
Scoring
WIN = 2 points, TIE = 1 point, LOSS = 0 points
However, scoring has no bearing on winning/losing the pool.
 
Standings
The final standings will be calculated using the total points from ALL weeks.
 
Pick Deadline
The pick deadline is Sunday at 12 Noon (Eastern). For selecting games earlier in the week, you must select that game prior to the scheduled kickoff of that game.
 
Administration
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) 9/8/21 (1st Kickoff is 9/9/21). 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.

Hi,

Several questions:

Typically how many entries participate in the pool ?

How many entries are there currently?

Are multiple entries permitted?

Besides the 20 unit fee to the website, are there any other costs?

How many years has the pool existed?

Thanks.

Hi Walter

 

Consistently over 50 entries per year. Last year was 53 due to Covid - 2019 was 72 participants.

 

Currently 11 paid in and I see another 5 logged onto our pool site. Many come in this week and next. I am confident of similar numbers to past few years.

 

Yes, multiple entries are allowed.

 

Cost is 25, not 20 and no other fees. However, if everyone loses early, we offer a ROUND 2 to the pool for re-entry after the winner in ROUND 1 is crowned and paid.

 

Pool's been in existence at least 9 years

 

Let me know.
