I'll open the next round earlier than usual because I'm in Internet just for some hours. Sadly or rather luckily I don't have time to write my usual sillinesses ;)

Luck for everybody... well it isn't possible

----------------------------Warning! The Usual Boring Part Ahead! ---------------------------

It consists in guessing the three firsts in F1 races. You do an ordered guess (i.e. MS-JPM-RS) and a score is given according to real podium results. The scoring system is as explained here:

Suppose you do the guess MS-JPM-RS.

If MS is 1st, 3 points
if MS is 2nd, 2 points
if MS is 3rd, 1 point

If JPM is 1st, 2 points
if JPM is 2nd, 2 points
if JPM is 3rd, 1 point

If RS is 1st, 2nd or 3rd, 1 point

It another driver makes a podium position, it doesn't give any points.

The key for this system is not "gambling" on the exact position but to do a realistic shot at the relative merit of each driver in that GP. For instance, you are not penalized for JPM being first and not 2nd, as the penalty comes by not scoring with MS's first position.

In order to have a reference I will enter two "dummy" players: Bernie and Max (the names were chosen randomly ). Bernie always guesses the firsts three qualifyers, and Max always guesses the firsts three classified in WDC current points table. Can you outscore B&M?

Any guess can be done before one hour before the official first start of the race. We will use the "official" Atlas Forum clock to resolve close entries.

Sometimes I calculate a new secundary classification with average score to give an opportunity to no so constant players, that fail to guess from time to time.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hope to have more time the next time! I'll try to come to this Internet meta-life on Tuesday or so.

Goodbye and behave as you know ;)

Not having something against, but I found it really unsportsmanlike to guess the podium after the qualification

According to the rules:
Any guess can be done before one hour before the official first start of the race. We will use the "official" Atlas Forum clock to resolve close entries.

I know what you mean DeathMaster, every other game here requires one to place bets before qualifying, but Schummy has made the rules and said many times that it is always ok to change guesses up until an hour before, so you can't say it is unsportsmanlike.

And look at me, it didn't exactly help did it.

Great guess SeanValen!! Getting Irvine was not bad at all!

Knew Irvine would do it, thanks, I think I might be just one point way from leader Gerry Nassar now, I went for the risk, I needed too, and Irvine was the best selection for the risk, excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
