HB & HB World Cup Pool Results

13 Jul

We have the results of our World Cup Pool! Considering how unpredictable this World Cup was, I am amazed at how well we all did. (I would have done better if I had remembered to make all my picks. Doh!) Winner and final positions after the jump.

Congratulations to La Décima AfterParty! Not only was Nicole first in our pool, but check these stats: She had a 76.56% win accuracy, a global position of 2,065 /150,451 and was in the top 2% globally! Wowsers. It was such a weird ass World Cup, I’m surprised anyone knew which end was up.

Thank you so much to everyone for playing. It was a lot of fun. We’ll do a La Liga one as well (and maybe an unofficial EPL one too). I may do it at SuperBru like this one because Yahoo deleted our pool the day after Liga ended! I had no way to go back and see who won or the final positions. Grrrr! Anyhow, congrats again to Nicole!

    I like SuperBru — especially the reminders! Congrats all!

    I vote not for SuperBru. I dropped out by the third game as predicting score lines just wasn’t interesting. Picking a starting 11 each week is more fun and challenging and I felt I got to learn about so many different players that way.

    As for the the La Liga pool last year, I know I came in second as it was right down to the wire for second and third with Bring El Pirata Back (hope I remembered the name correctly). And I remember celebrating that I actually did well at something mathematical! According to my sticky note, ISPGaya came in on top. Like a couple hundred points over us on top.

      Ah and ISPGaya was one of the people who never gave me an email address at the beginning and thus was not eligible for the prize. That’s the problem with Yahoo – you can’t contact people.

      I think for the leagues, you can choose a team with SuperBru. You’re not able to do that for the World Cup because it’s national teams and it’s not set up the same way. The EPL one is open now, I”ll have to take a look.

        Well, that’s plain silly. Guess you just didn’t seem trustworthy enough for that info. 😉 Wish I had taken a screen shot in the spring for you. Then everyone could see how they did.

    I would have done better had I remembered to make my picks. With that said, SuperBru fits my needs (that whole remembering thing doesn’t work well for me) much better than picking a starting XI each week.

    Yay!!! 😀 I had so much fun, thank you for setting this up (i really liked superbru)! Also, thank you to everyone who kept me updated throughout the whole WC with all your awesome posts. Can’t wait for La Liga to start back up! 🙂

    It was fun to have a pool like this again. Though i did significantly worse than last world cup :S
    We should do it for this new champions league! u don’t have to do the prize, just the pool

    I have the La Liga pool results and will email you the file. ISP Gaya is Fernando Almeida. Congratulations!!!!
