Pool Message Board
Josh, you got my message about the results being in the wrong order, right?
2. hdsheena (Kentucky, 140 pts, 140 max pts)
3. HogwartsExpress (Kentucky, 140 pts, 140 max pts)
These two should be swapped. It's like your page doesn't know about the tie breaker.
The tournament is over, and the results have been tabulated!
And the winners of the 100.00 BTC pot are...
"crazycassie" won 1st place with 153 total points, earning 50% of the pot: 50 BTC

Winners have been emailed individually with instructions on collecting their lucky-ass winnings.
Thanks for the madness!
For all you Duke fans that are now in "Missouri" (ha!), I've got some good news!
You can now create a completely new rest-of-the-tournament Sweet 16 pool!
Or sign up for the free public one I made with a 25 BTC pot at:
Or sign up for a 1 BTC entry-fee one with an additional 25 BTC pot at:
(less competition for the 25 BTC!)
Note, for both of those the scoring includes a bonus for correctly picking an underdog (but for a pool you create yourself, you set the scoring)!
Also, remember if you invite people to the pool, either using the form on the site or sharing your referral link, you get 10% of their prize if they end up winning!
Yeowch... there goes my chance of winning my own bitcoins back, thanks a lot Norfolk State! On the bright side, I won't have to be spending 10,000 BTC!
And, please note the new unsubscribe link below if you don't want email notifications of comments like these...
Nope, you have to have a "complete" sheet to win last place or second-to-last place, however you can win any of the other prizes with an incomplete pick sheet, which would be impressive!
are the (NO CHAMPION, 0 pts, 0 max pts) eligble for last place?
You don't HAVE to come back... if you win anything you'll get an email when the tournament is over with more info!
So, do we need to come back here at some point to see if we won any bitcoins from random sportball matches? Where do we put in a bitcoin address for any random winnings my random picks might win?
It seems to be a sport called "basketball". It looks a bit like netball, which is what the girls at school had to play while the boys were playing football or rugby.
http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/ncaa-tournament/brackets/viewable_men has the dates of the matches. Or bouts. Whatever they're called.
I'm from the UK, what is this competition we are selecting winners for? I just selected random winners.
I herped when I should have derped.
Welcome to the first ever PURE bitcoin world-wide march madness pool!
Free to enter, 100 BTC to win!
Let's go, anybody but Duke!
