The goal is to predict the results more accurately than anyone else. Is that right? Yes

In my privacy settings I have chosen to share stuff with "Only registered Superbru users with whom I've shared a private pool in a current or past tournament". Is it a private pool that I've joined? Yes

Curious to see what happens next. You get to see how good you are at picking the outcome compared to other CAW members & Waikato followers!

Points are awarded in four ways:
A Win Point: Awarded for picking the right winner
A Margin Point: Awarded for picking the margin within 5 points. In close games you can even pick up a margin point if you pick the loser, if your prediction was Loser winning by 2 points, and the actual winner won by less than 3 points (or there was a draw)
A Grand Slam point: Awarded for getting all the winners right in a round
Bonus Point: This is a little more complex. A BP is awarded per game to the person closest to the actual result. If 2 people are equally close the point is split between them. For 3 people, they each get 0.33 points, and for 4 or more, it's 0.25pts. Bonus points apply in each individual pool. So, in your case, you'll sometimes get a BP or part of one awarded in the CAW pool, but not in the Waikato pool.

Each round the person in a pool who gets the most points that round gets awarded a virtual Yellow Cap.

Pool rankings are done based on your accumulated points. If two or more people are equal in a pool on Points, they are ranked by who has the lowest TDM (Total Distance Margin) The site keeps track of all your picks & tallies up how far away from the actual result you've been across every game in the whole competition, so the lower that is the better!

Hope that makes sense!
