    Default $500 SEASON-LONG CONTEST: Predict the Road Trips (Part 5 of 6) [DEADLINE: 4:30PM 2/9]

    READ THE RULES THOROUGHLY AND CAREFULLY.
    HENCEFORTH, ANY VARIANCES FROM THE RULES WILL GENERALLY RESULT IN DISQUALIFICATION.


    Hi all. Back for part five of the $500 season-long contest: predict the road trips.

    This season I'm awarding a first prize and a second prize.
    There's also always a bonus contest in conjunction with the last trip of the year, for those not still in contention.

    Here's how this season's contest works:

    The Kings have six road trips of four or more games:

    Road Trip #1 (6 games)
    Sat Oct 21 4pm @ CBJ
    Mon Oct 23 4pm @ TOR
    Tue Oct 24 4:30pm @ OTT
    Thu Oct 26 4:30pm @ MTL
    Sat Oct 28 4pm @ BOS
    Mon Oct 30 5pm @ STL

    Road Trip #2 (4 games)
    Tue Nov 28 4:30pm @ DET
    Thu Nov 30 4pm @ WAS
    Fri Dec 1 5pm @ STL
    Sun Dec 3 4pm @ CHI

    Road Trip #3 (4 games)
    Tue Dec 12 4pm @ NJD
    Fri Dec 15 4pm @ NYR
    Sat Dec 16 4pm @ NYI
    Mon Dec 18 4pm @ PHI

    Road Trip #4 (4 games)
    Tue Jan 23 7pm @ VAN
    Wed Jan 24 7pm @ CGY
    Tue Jan 30 5:30pm @ DAL
    Thu Feb 1 5:30pm @ NAS

    Road Trip #5 (7 games)
    Fri Feb 9 4:30pm @ FLA
    Sat Feb 10 4pm @ TBL
    Tue Feb 13 4pm @ CAR
    Thu Feb 15 4pm @ PIT
    Sat Feb 17 10am @ BUF
    Mon Feb 19 5:30pm @ CHI
    Tue Feb 20 5pm @ WPG

    Road Trip #6 (4 games)
    Mon Mar 19 5pm @ MIN
    Tue Mar 20 5pm @ WPG
    Thu Mar 22 6pm @ COL
    Sat Mar 24 7pm @ EDM

    I will start a thread before each of these six road trips accepting entries with predictions for the games on that trip.
    (This is the thread for the big one - the fifth trip.)

    For each trip, predict whether the Kings will WIN or LOSE each game on the trip, as well as the exact score of the LAST game on the trip.
    For the score prediction, list the Kings' score first (e.g., "W 3-2" or "L 2-3," NOT "L 3-2"). This is no longer a request but a requirement.
    For example, for this fifth road trip, a valid entry might read:

    @ FLA W
    @ TBL L
    @ CAR W
    @ PIT L
    @ BUF L
    @ CHI W
    @ WPG W 3-2

    Scoring:
    The maximum score for the season-long contest is 100 points.
    For each correct WIN-LOSS prediction, a contestant receives 3 points (29 games x 3 points = 87 possible points).
    For each correct SCORE prediction, 1 point (6 games x 1 point = 6 possible points).
    The remaining seven points will involve the use of tokens.

    Each contestant receives seven tokens to use at any time during the season-long contest.
    You use one or more tokens by noting on your entry(ies), beside the relevant game(s), the number of tokens you wish to apply to that game.
    For example, on the above entry, if I wished to apply two tokens to the Buffalo game, that line would read "@ BUF L (two tokens)."
    If your win-loss prediction for a game to which you have applied token(s) is correct, you receive one bonus point for each token you applied to that game.

    They are yours to bet with as you choose.
    You may use them all on one game, spread them among seven games, or anything in between.
    You may use them all on one road trip, spread them among the six road trips, or anything in between.
    You may use them early to build a lead, save them for later to mount a comeback, or anything in between.
    Or you may simply feel especially confident about the outcome of one or more games and use them accordingly.
    (Note that if you use them on the last game of a road trip, you do not need to get the score right to win the bet, only the win-loss outcome.)
    Any tokens that remain unused after the last trip have a zero value; "use 'em or lose 'em."

    If one or more contest games is/are unplayed (i.e., cancelled or postponed until after the date/time of the last game on the corresponding road trip), then all points from such game(s) will be at stake in a Bonus Game, March 30 at Anaheim.
    In such case, if four or more points are at stake in the Bonus Game, one point will be a score prediction point.
    Also in such case, any contestant who bet tokens on one or more unplayed games may bet them on a subsequent road trip or, if there is none, on the Bonus Game.
    Any makeup(s) of any unplayed game(s) will not be part of the contest.
    If the Anaheim game is also unplayed (by midnight on the night of March 31), the maximum score for the contest will be 100 minus the number of points from the unplayed contest game(s); any contestant who lost token(s) in both an unplayed contest game and the unplayed Bonus Game will have his or her score augmented by the product of (the number of such tokens) and (his or her success rate on other tokens; or, if none, the total contestant pool's success rate on tokens); and the prize winners will receive their prizes, as calculated below, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is 100, and the denominator of which is 100 minus the number of points from the unplayed contest game(s).

    First place will receive $5 x (his or her winning score) for a maximum grand prize of $500 [current max: $380].
    Second place will receive $1 x (his or her score) for a maximum second prize of $100 [current max: $73].
    In the event of any tie, those tied will divide the applicable prize(s) or (only if all agree) a random draw will determine a single winner.
    Regardless, all who tie with the first place score will qualify for the $1,000 Contest of the Decade.

    E = mathematically eliminated from winning or tying for either major prize

    General rules:
    For each road trip, all valid entries must be posted before the scheduled start time of the first game, as listed above.
    Always read my first post with each trip as special rules may apply, especially with respect to the last trip, when those in contention are asked to submit entries to me by private message.
    Refer back to the rules regularly as they may be updated and you are responsible for complying with them in their current form.
    Once you have submitted your entry for a trip, you may not change it without express permission, as such changes make recordkeeping a nightmare.
    If I have liked your entry post, that means it has been viewed, accepted and recorded, and cannot be changed.
    You may duplicate another contestant's entry; however, this may reduce your expected value.
    It is theoretically possible to win a prize without entering one or more of the six parts. New contestants are welcome at any point, and I sometimes add bonuses without advance notice.
    Anybody posting from multiple accounts will be disqualified.

    For this fifth trip, any contestant who correctly predicts all seven win-loss outcomes will receive a $21 Guarantee AND automatic entry into the $1,000 Contest of the Decade in 2019-2020.
    For any contestant with a perfect scorecard (all seven win-loss outcomes PLUS a correct score prediction), the $21 Guarantee will become a $50 Guarantee.

    All the standard disclaimers apply.
    I reserve the right to decide any questions of rule interpretation in my sole, absolute and arbitrary discretion.
    I reserve the right to terminate the contest at any time (including after its completion) and for any reason in my sole, absolute and arbitrary discretion, and not to award any prize.
    Entering this contest does not entitle you to any legal right or expectancy, regardless of performance.
    In the event of confusion regarding an entry, I may make a good faith effort to contact the contestant for clarification; however, I reserve the right to reject any entry in whole or in part.

    Good luck and GO KINGS GO!!!

    -----> I had you at 5 entering Road Trip #4 (see Road Trip #4 , original post) and you bet 3 on the Vancouver game. Yes, that's correct. You bet two to win at NYR in Road Trip #3.
