The Red Dragon 2019 Grand Slam of Darts Prediction Game!

Post by fling » Wed Nov 06, 2019 7:29 pm

The Red Dragon 2019 Grand Slam of Darts Prediction Game!

This thread will be updated with the current tables and rules etc.

Prizes

The Top 2 will win a set of darts (to the value of £40) from the Red Dragon Website www.reddragondarts.com

Thanks as always go to Red Dragon for their generosity.

What to do

Before each round I shall start a thread where I shall ask you to predict the final group standings, or the score of each match, as well as a few bonuses to mix it up a bit.

Scoring is as follows:

Group Stages - 1 point for every position guessed correctly, plus a bonus point for getting every position in a group correct.
Last 16 - 3 points for correct result, 7 points for correct result AND score
QF's - 6 points for correct result, 13 points for correct result AND score
SF's - 8 points for correct result, 17 points for correct result AND score
Final - 10 points for correct result, 21 points for correct result AND score

Bonuses will generally be 5 points each, although this may differ for the Final.

Be aware there is a short turnaround between each round ending and the next starting - so be aware of this when entering!!

The Semi Final and Final sessions are both played the same day so these will be predicted on AT THE SAME TIME (plus I will be going to both so won’t have time to update in between).

In your prediction for the FIRST ROUND I shall ask you to specify a set of darts of your choosing from the Red Dragon Website. Entries without this vital information may be ignored!!!

Be aware that the set you choose in the First Round thread is the set you win.
You can select any darts but if the value is over £40 then you must pay the difference.

A template will follow soon.

Good luck!

DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES - Start of play on Saturday 9th November (13.10, around ten minutes into the Sky broadcast)

Smallprint

The highest two scores will win the set of darts of their choosing.

If a tie is needed to split the winners, then bonuses will be disregarded and the player with the highest aggregate score across all round excluding bonuses shall win. If still tied, the player(s) with the highest Finals Night score will win in the tie.
If still tied after this, then countback will take place, looking at who had the highest Semi Final session score, highest Quarter Final etc, until a tie can be split. In the unlikely event there is still a tie, a mini-prediction game involving the Players Championship Finals (the weekend after the final) will be used to split it.

All entries need to have a choice of darts from the Red Dragon Website (www.reddragondarts.com) dart code and weight as published on the website. If an entry does not have this information than the prize will revert to the next place and so on. The darts selected in the first round will be the darts shipped, no exceptions (unless out of stock in which case the winner will be asked to pick another)

The decision of myself and the site moderators are final.

Entries made after the published deadline in each round may be accepted at my discretion, minus the bonuses and matches that have been played already.

PS I will be going to Wolverhampton first thing Sunday morning for the semi-finals and final and will not be back home until the Monday afternoon so it likely that the final results will not be published until the Tuesday

Boom after receiving 24 points (3 correct scores and 1 correct result) has jumped from 16th to joint 1st alongside robot who scored 22 points (2 correct scores, 1 correct result and 5 bonus points).

The previous leader (chue05) was 1 of 5 players who did not enter Wednesday’s games!!

Theronin has not been award their 3 points for the Wright v Cross game as they could not follow the simple instructions of following the template and switched the names around. They have been awarded their points for the other games even they have chosen to shorten the names of the selections when every other entry has managed to follow the instructions. They also managed to swap around the answers for the bonus questions so would not have received any points if they had guesses correctly.
If their entry for the remaining dates follow the same pattern then I will disregard completely.

Bonus Points Highest Average – Dave Chisnall
Lowest Average – Rob Cross

9 people scored 5 bonus points for the highest average but no-one received any for the lowest average.

Jesus - I'm actually still in with a shout. Usually I'm rock-bottom of these things after the first round.

O C and robot are now joint 1st on 60 points with Boom just behind on 58

Top Scorers of the night were kingp35, O C and TheSandman with 22 points (all with 4 correct results and both bonus questions correct)
Correct scores were limited with only Chambord and rabsmith2 predicting correctly in the MVG v White game and MrLil8, el_ringo and Kyeavfc predicting correctly in the Anderson v Thornton game.

I have disregarded all points for theronin who cannot follow simple instructions

Bonus Points Highest Average – MVG
Lowest Average – Rob Thornton

32 out of the 35 entrants scored 5 bonus points for the highest average with 15 scoring 5 points for the lowest average. Those 15 people had both correct.

Were my predictions not in time for Saturday night? I seem to have got 0 points even though I know I got at least one result right.

I'm not bothered if I was too late btw.

I'm sure fling will check next next week, when he's back.

You entered at 8.10pm so you may well have missed the cut off.
