This thread will hold all the info regarding the 2014 GreyhoundScene Sky Tipsters Competition, again sponsored by Dunham Greyhound Centre which begins on 14/01/2014. So Happy Tipping!!
For 2014 there will be a bonus competition for all competitors who are in a top-16 position with 4 meetings to go. Competitors will automatically be entered into a knock-out cup for these last 4 meetings. Please read the rules below.
Each entry thread will appear in the respective track sections as soon as the final card is available, usually 2 days before the race-day. This is where you place your selections for the competition.
Make a selection for each live race (8 in total), in the form:
21.04 – T4 – Westmead Hawk
Also include a NAP & NB selection to incur 20 bonus profits as described below is both are successful
Where the trap number and greyhound name stated are not the same the trap number will be taken as the selection.
All entries must be in before 7.25pm on the day of the meeting. Entries after this date or posts amended by users will be null and void
If any selection is a non-runner or reserve, then the selection will go to the favourite (nearest to trap 1 in the case of Joint-Favourites).
For 2014, the points system will be as follows:
1st Place – 10 Points
2nd Place – 6 Points
3rd Place – 4 Points
4th Place – 3 Points
5th Place – 2 Points
6th Place – 1 Point
Entrants should tip in each of the 8 live races shown live on SKY.
Each entrant can earn enhanced points by correctly selecting a NAP and NB for each meeting earning a 20 point bonus if BOTH are successful.
The maximum points score to be obtained per meeting is 100: assuming 8 winners and the bonus for correct NAP and NB is obtained.
Dead-Heats will be paid at the highest position, e.g. if dead-heat for 2nd place, both selections will be awarded 6 points.
Scores shall appear in the 'Sky Tipster Comp Leaderboard & Scores - 2014 thread'
Upon there being only 4 SKY meetings of the year remaining the top-16 competitors will be entered into a knock-out cup (the forum competition will also continue until the end of the final meeting).
The pre-defined knock-out draw below will be points based versus the 2 drawn opponents. The only additional input by competitors is the winning time of last race televised by SKY on the meeting (i.e. Tipsters Race 8). This is required in the event of a draw on points and the closest going through to the next round.
If a competitor in the Top-16 does not enter then their opponent will get a bye into the next round.
The Winner of the Knock-Out Cup will receive £50 from Dunham Greyhound Centre.
Any questions please PM me.
I will occasionally be away, please bear with me up-dating the leader boards, I may need somebody to open the thread for any meetings I am away in my absence.
