    JI Euro 2012 Pick 'Em Tounament

    I set up a league for the Euro 2012. Anyone is free is to join as long as you hate Italy.

    Thanks for the link Royal it's what I was looking for.

    Click on this link, create a profile if needed and join the pool.
    http://www.sportguru.co.uk/euro2012/pool.asp?p=10018026

    Pool name: JI
    Pool code: yawsbogs


    This is game by game league where you can make/change your picks until kickoff of each game.

    Scoring system

    The SportGuru scoring system aims to reward different aspects of prediction with different types of points. You'll see these represented all around the site as WP (Win Point), MP (Margin Point), BP (Bonus Point) and, in some tournaments, GSP (Grand Slam Point) and CP (Challenge Point).

    Win Point (WP)
    The meat and bread of SportGuru. You'll score a Win Point if you correctly predict the winner of a game (or a draw, where applicable), irrespective of margin.
    The core Win Point value is usually 1 pt, but it does vary through the different stages of a tournament, increasing in value as picking the winner becomes harder.
    1.00 pt From Round 1 to 3
    1.50 pts Quarter-finals
    2.00 pts Semi-finals
    3.00 pts Final

    Margin Point (MP)
    The Margin Point rewards accuracy in margin, and, in the case of soccer, correct score for either team (as long as you got the winner of the game right).
    Vector Pre-requisites
    0.5 pts Goal difference Correct winner
    0.25 pts Goals for team #1 Correct winner
    0.25 pts Goals for team #2 Correct winner
    Example 1You predict Sweden 3 - 2 Denmark and the actual score is Sweden 4 - 3 Denmark. You will score 0.5 pts for the correct goal difference, but nothing for the actual team goals.
    Example 2You predict Sweden 3 - 2 Denmark and the actual score is Sweden 4 - 2 Denmark. Your goal difference was wrong, but you will score 0.25 pts for correctly predicting 2 goals for Denmark.
    Example 3You predict Sweden 2 - 1 Denmark and the actual score is Denmark 3 - 2 Sweden. You won't qualify for any Margin Points as even though you got the correct goals for Sweden, you did not get the winner of the game right. Winner first, margin later.

    Bonus Point (BP)
    The Bonus Point rewards the closest pick(s) in a given pool. To qualify, you must have got the winner of the match correct first. It applies inside each pool only and does not count globally. This means whilst you could score the BP in one pool, you might not in another where someone else has made a better pick than you.
    To qualify for a BP, you must have got the outcome of the game right (i.e. correctly picked a draw or a win for one of the teams). Putting it another way, even if nobody in your pool gets the winner right, the lowest pick for the losing team will not qualify for a Bonus Point.ValueThe BP is worth 1 pt. If two or more players share it, the point is divided up amongst them, down to a minimum split of 0.25.Value Split
    1.0 pt If 1 player alone is closest
    0.5 pts If 2 players are equally close
    0.33 pts If 3 players are equally close
    0.25 pts If 4 or more players are equally close
    How is "closest" defined?If you predict the exact score, then it's very easy: obviously that's the closest possible pick. However, if no-one in the pool picks the exact score, then the Bonus Index is used to determine the winner(s) of the BP.Bonus Index (BI)This is where it gets complicated! Normally we use points difference to decide this, but in soccer the scoring is insufficient to make goal difference alone a fair reflector of closeness - e.g. a pick of 6-5 and one of 1-0 have the same goal difference but are very different predictions. The Bonus Index uses goal difference, but tempers it with total number of goals too. A formula is applied to each pick:Bonus Index (BI) =Abs (Abs (your goal diff. - actual goal diff.)+Abs (your tot. goals - actual tot. goals) / 2)The lowest BI wins the BP. Basically, if the combination of your goal difference and total goal difference (which is weighted half of goal difference) is the best in the pool, you'll win the BP. We know it's complicated, but it works reasonably fairly.

    Grand Slam Point (GSP)
    The Grand Slam Point rewards getting all the winners in a given round of the tournament correct. It does not necessarily apply to all rounds.
    Value
    The Grand Slam Point is awarded if you correctly predict the winner (or draw) in all the games in a round (for definition of our rounds, see the fixtures. You will only qualify if you picked all the games in the round and if you did not default on any of them.
    Value Rounds
    2 pts From Round 1 to Round 3
    1 pt Quarter-finals
    0 pts From Semi-finals to Final

    If someone wants to start a locked league, where you have to make predictions at the begining of the tourney without changing them that could
    be fun too.

    Not sure if you read that part, but you can make the picks day by day as the tourney goes on.

    It's Bazza (the "za" is important) or Bruce.

    Thats actually me. They gave that as a suggested name and I thought it was funny. I didn't realize it would be my permanent name or I would've gone something with Tebow in it.
