    Default $550 Road Trip Prediction Contest / $1,100 Contest of the Decade (Part 1 of 7)

    Hi all. Back for another season-long road trip prediction contest.
    One final congratulations to last season's winner, santiclaws ($425), and runner-up, Joe Laviguer ($81).

    beedee, UnknownMan, TooCool, Troyvsc, xLAxKingsx, santiclaws and Joe Laviguer have qualified for the $1,100 2019-2020 Contest of the Decade, which is being conducted separately by PM.
    They are asked not to post to these threads until I have posted their predictions.

    Here's how this year's regular contest works:

    The Kings have seven road trips of three or more games:

    Fri Mar 27 5pm @ STL
    Sun Mar 29 12noon @ CHI

    For each trip, I will post an entry thread approximately one week prior to the first game of the trip.
    This is the thread for the first trip.
    To enter, you must post an entry to that thread predicting 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; score predictions in the wrong format will be recorded but receive no points.

    Your entry must be posted prior to the scheduled start time of the first game on this trip and all are kindly asked to limit themselves to a single entry post until that time.
    Therefore, your deadlines for the first six road trips are as follows:

    Road Trip #1 : Sat Oct 5 7pm
    Road Trip #2 : Tue Oct 22 5pm
    Road Trip #3 : Tue Nov 5 4:30pm
    Road Trip #4 : Thu Dec 12 7pm
    Road Trip #5 : Thu Jan 9 7pm
    Road Trip #6 : Tue Feb 4 4pm

    For the seventh road trip, those in contention will have to submit their entries to me by private message one week in advance; i.e., by Tue Mar 17 5:30pm.
    Those not in contention will submit their entries on the Bonus Contest thread by Tue Mar 24 5:30pm.
    Please take a moment, as I have, to calendar both potential deadlines. Assume the earlier deadline will apply to you until and unless you are definitively eliminated from contention for a major prize.

    In fact, please take a moment to calendar all these dates and times to avoid missing any deadlines, especially during the holiday season.
    YOU MUST TIMELY AND VALIDLY ENTER ALL ROAD TRIPS (7 ENTRIES) TO REMAIN ELIGIBLE FOR A MAJOR PRIZE.
    Bonus prizes specific to individual road trips may be offered at any time, including before, during or after said trips.

    Scoring:
    The maximum score for the season-long contest is 110 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 (7 games x 1 point = 7 possible points).
    The remaining sixteen points will involve the use of tokens.

    Each contestant receives sixteen tokens to use during the season-long contest.
    You use one or more tokens by noting on your entries, beside the relevant games, the number of tokens you wish to apply to each game's win-loss prediction. (e.g., "@ CGY L (2 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, except that THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF TOKENS THAT MAY BE APPLIED TO ANY ONE GAME IS FOUR.
    (Note that if you use token(s) 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.)
    Attempting to wager more tokens than a contestant has remaining, or more than four tokens on any one game, may be grounds for disqualification.
    Any tokens that remain unused after the last trip have a zero value; "use 'em or lose 'em."

    If one or more contest game(s) 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, April 3 at Anaheim.
    In such case, if four or more points are at stake in the Bonus Game, then one point will be a score prediction point.
    Also in such case, any contestant who bet tokens on one or more unplayed game(s) 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 April 3), then the maximum score for the contest will be 110 minus the number of points from the unplayed contest game(s); any contestant who lost token(s) in both unplayed contest game(s) 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 110, and the denominator of which is 110 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 $550.
    Second place will receive $1 x (his or her score) for a maximum second prize of $110.
    In the event of any tie, those tied will divide the applicable prize(s). All who tie with the first place score will qualify for the 2029-2030 Contest of the Decade.

    General rules:
    Always read my first post for each trip, as special rules may apply.
    Refer to the rules regularly, as they may be updated and you are responsible for complying with them in their current form.
    Once you have posted your entry for a trip, you may not change it without my express prior permission (which I am usually happy to grant), as such unannounced changes make recordkeeping a nightmare.
    You may duplicate another contestant's entry; however, this may reduce your expected value.

    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.

    Please feel free to PM me at any time with questions, comments, or suggestions.

    Good luck and GO KINGS GO!!!
