PJ's Summer Draft Comp Rules and Format for easy reference

THE RULES

1. Players. Each team will consist of 5 players. If there are no selections posted by any of the Sub Selectors then your captain (or nominated person) may submit selections on behalf of the absent team member. In this instance their selections on behalf of the missing player must vary from their own to some degree.

2. Draw. The draw will match each team against another team every week until all teams have played each other over in a "one round" Round Robin format. At the conclusion of the Round Robin the team with the highest points tally will be the Summer Super Comp Champions. Aggregate will decide ranking for teams level on points.

3. Selections. Competitors are required to select two runners per race. No subs are to be posted. All selections should be posted at the same time although I may make allowances if this is not possible due to late arrival for posting. Posting the same numbers for each race is not permitted. I don't think your team mates would want you to do that anyway.

4. Scratching Rule. You may post replacements for any scratching by making a new post entirely (i.e. new thread) clearly indicating your replacement selection(s). This may now be done any time up until 1 HOUR before the first race which I will refer to as CLOSING TIME. If you have not posted by then your Captain (or other team member) will have 30 minutes to submit a replacement set of selections on the selection thread (in a new post/thread). Any scratchings that require subs can also be submitted by the Captains at that time. It would be very helpful if you are at all able, to please check your selections for scratchings, before closing time. Once we are 1 HOUR away from the start of race one, the selection thread will be opened to allow everyone to view everyone else's selections and for Captains to have 30 minutes to post any subs, BBs  etc. Selections cannot be changed at this point except in the event of scratchings or numbers posted that don't exist for that specific race. After this point - 30 minutes prior to race 1 - ALL selections are LOCKED IN. Late scratchings will go to the TAB sub followed by the 2nd favourite by TAB win odds in that order. If more than one horse meets the latter criteria then the replacement will be the horse with the higher number. 

5. Investments. Each selection will be regarded as an imaginary $10 win bet while if both selections start, a $2 quinella combining the two selections will also be credited to the competitor. So that's a $22 investment per race per competitor if two tips are submitted.The races will usually be split 50/50 between NZ and Australia. 

6. Best Bet. Each selector may choose one race in each country as a "best bet" selection. All $$$ earned from these races will be doubled. In the event of scratchings the same best bet (BB) will apply. There will be no transference to a subsequent race. If your best bet race is abandoned - bad luck !@

7. H-T-H. The draw will pit individual players from the two teams drawn to play each other, against each other in head-to-head competition. The player with the most $$$ at the conclusion of the round is the winner for his team. The team with 3 or more winners wins the match.

8. Countback. If a head-to-head contest is a tie on $$$ earned then a countback will determine the winner by award victory to the player who uniquely selected the highest placed horse in the final event. In other words if you both selected the same horse that cancels itself out. It would be the two selections which are different which will determine the tie-breaker. If the selections are the same for the final event then the same parameter will apply to the penultimate race and so on.

9. Points. Teams will be awarded points as follows:
3-2 win - 2 points
4-1 win - 3 points
5-0 win - 4 points


Bonus points
Team profit bonus - 1 point
Losing team with higher aggregate than their conquerors - 1 point


So a well performed side which still loses may earn as many points (2) as a side which wins narrowly .

10. Each week there will be a team having their bye, however it will not be a week off. Picks will need to be submitted as usual. The Captain of the "bye team" can choose which of the other 3 matches they choose for their team to compete in. There are no head-to-heads for the 'bye" team. They are simply pitting their aggregate against that of the other two sides.

If they beat one of the other teams' aggregate scores, they score one point. If they beat the aggregate of both teams they score two points. They are also eligible for a bonus point for a team profit. So the maximum they can score is 3 points. They can also choose to use a Joker in their Bye week if they choose. This should add some interest to the comp. Captains can canvass their team or go alone with their choice of clash. The Captain of the Bye team has until closing time on Saturday to announce who their opponents will be. You cannot play your Jeopardy chip on your BYE round.

11. Joker. Once during the Round Robin series, the team captain of each team may elect to play their "Joker". They must advise this in the post in which they make their selections. They may or may not confer with their team regarding this deployment. The Joker will double the final points tally for that team for that week. So it's possible to score 10 points (this has been done more than once) from a single round while it is also possible to play your Joker score 0 points and waste it completely.

12. The Jeopardy ChipThis is a new addition to the comp. Each team will possess one Jeopardy Chip for the duration of the comp. There is no guarantee they will get to use it or in fact no requirement for them to use it if they choose not to. This chip can only be played against a team ranked higher than your team at the commencement of that round with the exception of Round 1 when any team can play the Jeopardy Chip. This chip will-

Ensure a one point deduction from your opposing team's final points tally for that round if the opposing team fails to achieve a final aggregate for the Round of $1000 or more. The 1 point deduction will occur regardless of the points tally and will be irrespective of whether that team win or lose. If they score zero points and fail to achieve an aggregate of $1000 or more then they will score -1 point for that round.

You MAY NOT play the Jeopardy Chip in conjunction with your Joker. It would be wise therefore not to be announcing your play of either card before the selection thread is opened 30 minutes before the first race.  Like the Joker play, the Jeopardy Chip play must be advised by the Captain in his selection post.

13. Posting. Please post your selections by number (names are optional and unnecessary). If you post replacements for scratched horses then do so in a new post rather than edit your original. DO NOT POST SUBS IN BRACKETS WITH YOUR SELECTIONS.

CHANGES TO CLOSING TIME - SCRATCHING REPLACEMENTS - SELECTIONS AMENDMENTS

Due to problems that have occurred so far in the comp the following changes will be made:

a) The posting deadline for selections will now be ONE HOUR before the first race in the comp. Everyone is expected to post by this time.

b) After the one hour deadline, Captains (or a nominated person from their team) will be able to post any scratching sub, missing BBs, etc necessary. They will have 30 minutes to do this. If you have team members who have posted to your own private message chat then this is the time to post their selections to the selection thread.

c) After this 30 minute period (1 hour before race 1 to 30 minutes before race 1) the thread will be deemed closed and no correspondence, changes, selections will be accepted after this time. Period. No excuses will be accepted. In that time I will post the extrapolations for the first race, time permitting. As in the case of Steve P yesterday who originally posted a completely wrong set of picks, this will need to be fixed before the 30 minute close off. The corrections will need to be in a new post not as an added post to the original selection post.  

d) THIS IS IMPORTANT. EVERY POST to the selection page needs to be a new message/thread. Do not edit posts and do not post on the thread on which you have already posted your selections. Most people do this already using a heading like "Craig's Scratching Subs" or something similar. If you don't follow this rule and add posts to your selection thread they will be ignored and any changes requested will not be granted. If Captains notice that team members have disobeyed this rule then they will have to correct the issue in a new post.

 

4. Scratching Rule. You may post replacements for any scratching by making a new post entirely (i.e. new thread) clearly indicating your replacement selection(s). This may now be done any time up until 1 HOUR before the first race which I will refer to as CLOSING TIME. If you have not posted by then your Captain (or other team member) will have 30 minutes to submit a replacement set of selections on the selection thread (in a new post/thread). Any scratchings that require subs can also be submitted by the Captains at that time. It would be very helpful if you are at all able, to please check your selections for scratchings, before closing time. Once we are 1 HOUR away from the start of race one, the selection thread will be opened to allow everyone to view everyone else's selections and for Captains to have 30 minutes to post any subs, BBs  etc. Selections cannot be changed at this point except in the event of scratchings or numbers posted that don't exist for that specific race. After this point - 30 minutes prior to race 1 - ALL selections are LOCKED IN. Late scratchings will go to the TAB sub followed by the 2nd favourite by TAB win odds in that order. If more than one horse meets the latter criteria then the replacement will be the horse with the higher number.

Thanks PJ

Pete will incorporate the closing time into his usual announcement.

In the first couple of weeks till the new format becomes familiar to all players, I will send a group PM to all captains on Sat morning, advising of close time and the fact they then have 30 minutes to check all team member selections to ensure they are posted on the correct thread, scratchings, missing team input etc etc
