You, me, and Fitter all got to 200 at the same time.  It is when the game starts not when it gets graded.  All of our 200th wins started at 7:00 pm ET.  I had the 2nd tiebreaker because I stayed up all night and put in all my picks in the middle of the night before.

Hi Guys,

Here is the Tie Breaker, as outlined in the Ultimate Race Rules:

"The race will officially end after 100 participants have reached the 200-win mark. Throughout the race, the following tie breaker will be used to rank users on the overall leaderboard in the event that multiple users are tied with a specific number of wins. If multiple users are tied, the earliest start time of their last winning pick (game) will be used as the tie breaker (time as listed on the pending page). As the second tie breaker, if users remain tied, the earliest pick time that each of the contestants entered with their last winning pick will be used to determine the leader. This will be determined by a time stamp recorded when each pick is submitted."

 

https://contests.covers.com/UltimateRace/Rules/73a56cad-6e6a-480c-82fb-a970006973c4

 

Congrats on your great capping! We will email winners once the leaderboard has been finalized.

If the 2nd tiebreaker was more sporting (f.e. PCT) I'd be 3000 richer. lol

Great contest nevertheless!

Is there any expiration on the CE (Covers Expert) credits as awarded? Received that prize last year with the travel mug. Never saw the credit in my account and still don't.

But knowing pushes were a loss affected damn near every pick we made the whole contest. I just considered every even number to have an extra 0.5 on it.  Never even  considered a hockey o/u of 6.0 since it could land there so easily.

It's not a RACE then

 

 

race imply first to cross finish line not someone who knows how to manipulate the rules.

But whatever we all know I won I'll take the grand.

Who needs stinkin’ rules anyway?  all games should be graded the way you think.  and you think.  and you over there, too.

i’m betting we have a millenial snowflake here.

Does percentage come into play, ever? Is it even a 5th tiebreaker?

They should choose the first 50 participants have reached to 200-win mark and their losing game less then others and that should be a winner. LESS losing games is a WINNER. What do u think? So there is no argument about this race
