Triple points eh ? Still doesn't make much difference as guildford can't catch Goose or me...
James can , of course . Since he needs a big result I'm assuming he will go for one of the less likely options .
As for me I need to beat Goose by one "level" - no difference from double points actually. But I think I might have to just shake hands and say well played Goose because I reckon we will both pick England C ... Or perhaps E...

OK I am happy to do the blind post "message to Joey" thing if that suits everyone ? James on board as well ? Will go along with the majority.

And anyway thanks to Joey for running this ...it has been fun. thumbsup

No worries, Alfie.

The other alternative would be to introduce a 20 point bonus for calling the correct toss.. and a further 20 points for guessing what the winning captain decides.

A bit too late in this World Cup for that though.
.
Maybe we can do that for each of the 5 Ashes Tests and have extra bonus points for the toss... and what they choose to do.

As are the rules of these things, I have to back against England or they can't win. I shall write down the team I'm meant to and then the margin I believe for the winners.

New Zealand - C

A nice hedge, Flipper.

I'll go slightly more extreme with:  NZ-E.

The team I would like to see win a World Cup and the margin I don't think they'll quite get... if they win it.
Also, Mum's a Kiwi, she went to school in Chch; you know... so I have a minimum 50% interest in seeing them do well tomorrow.

Yeah...I'm thinking the same. Technically a tie (which nobody selected) but you'd have to include the super over... so does that make it Eng-N?

I'm happy to go with Eng-N... how about everyone else?

Speaking as someone who wins on a tie (cough) if you take the result of the tied super over as a win N for England it means it's impossible for there to have been a tie, so if anyone picked it they'd be screwed despite having made the best prediction of the competition.

You can make an argument both ways to be fair.

England did win the World Cup, by the narrowest of margins, so Eng-N would be fair. On the other hand, the actual game and the super over was tied, so 0 for everyone would also be fair!

This is horrible.

I blame the grandstands, the rope, the umpires, the over-catering, the floppy ICC hats... but not in that order of course.  Smile

You still win Goose - anyway you look at it. So congratulations! clap

I reckon just give everyone who tipped England 30 points.

Was keeping out of this. Because if we call the result England N ... I would get more points than Goose by virtue of picking. C. Rather than E.
so I'd win Smile

But the original rules set out above say a "win" in a super over is indeed N . Which doesn't actually address the issue of a tie - even if it constitutes a win for England on the basis of some arcane tie break rule...

So although I could argue I was closer than Goose Smile I am not sure I'd want to claim it as it wasn't technically a win in the actual super over.

Have to blame Pal Joey for not foreseeing this set of circumstances and catering for it in the rules Smile

I really think zero points all round is fairest. Which leaves Goose as the winner ! Even if I feel a bit like NZ at being pipped at the post like that Smile

What gets me is that the super over was also a tie... not a conclusive win even after that; then it went to boundaries?

Surely we won't have this problem with the Ashes tipping comp format.

Lightning can't strike twice in the same spot, can it? Wink

The official match result was match tied with England winning the super over. A super over win is N, so I'd say Eng-N.

Check the first box on google, which is pulled from ICC. "England won the Super Over".

Makes no odds to me, I was out the competition weeks ago. But that's just my 2p.

The official Match Result is a TIE
Eng won the world cup based on boundary count rule....but the match result for eternity will remain TIE.

I had to fight with bet365...but they accepted my arguments and refunded my bets on NZ winning Yahoo

If I had a bit more time to fight, I could have pressed them into accepting payout of half the odds.

Well done everyone and thanks for participating.  OK

It was a very dramatic finish to a very dramatic tournament with the eventual winner not being known until the very last ball... of the very last inning... of a very last super over... of the tournament itself.

Thanks Guildford.

I'm very happy for you in particular; in that your team won the trophy and the way you also shot up the competition table in a positive and steady fashion.

If there were only a few more matches I'm sure you'd have been nipping at the leaders and staging another one of your famous comebacks. Smile

Too kind, Joey. I was along the right lines in thinking that England might stutter early on but hopelessly off it when tipping SA to beat them in the opening game and never caught up. Anyway, happy to let Alfie have his day in the sun! Smile

If I were a bookmaker I wouldn't refund any bet on NZ win.

Either the market is "to lift the trophy" - which they didn't - or the market is "match result" - in which case they should offer tie as a result and specify that it is after 50 overs. If they did, there's no case to refund it. If they didn't do that you might have a case, but then that's because Bet365 mismarketed the bet and nothing to do with the actual match result.

Thanks to Joey for organising. The wheels came off about the time I posted late and missed a game, but that in itself didn't cost me because even 20 points there would not see me shift a position.

Seems I did really well at the start when the World Cup was going with form, but then perhaps didn't pick a couple of surprise results and went searching for them in the wrong areas. West Indies in particular were one I probably backed too many times.

I highly doubt KP_Fan's post is true because BET365's rules are perfectly clear:

"Where no price is quoted for the tie and the official competition rules determine a winner/progressing side, bets will be settled on the official result."

BET365 did not offer a price for the tie and the official competition rules do specify a winner (England), so I highly doubt they would refund because they are covered by their own rule book.

The other idea - that BET365 would pay out at the half the odds - is complete horlicks and for the birds.

The bet was on Match Result and Match Result official was a TIE, hence they refunded.
They tried to settle the bet on Tournament result posing it to be match result......and got away with it in many cases.
But not in my case because i decided to challenge it and gave them evidence and they accepted,

No worries Robbo.
Yes, I kept foolishly backing SA and then backed against them in their last match (my brother warned me!) and too much trust in the Windies as well.
Anyway, you got the biggest prize in the end. Enjoy the win and the build up to the Ashes! It must be buzzing over there, yes?

"Where no price is quoted for the tie and the official competition rules determine a winner/progressing side, bets will be settled on the official result."

BET365 did not offer a price for the tie and the official competition rules do specify a winner (England), so I highly doubt they would refund because they are covered by their own rule book.

The other idea - that BET365 would pay out at the half the odds - is complete horlicks and for the birds.

in their chats they also quoted this internal rule.
However my contention was that the official result( for the match) = TIE
Official result for the world cup is Eng won but my bet was not on "who wins the world-cup"....but who wins the match.

And I offered to present the case to the UK betting adjudicator.....then they offered to call me for a settlement & someone did and on the call  offered to void the bet.
I asked for the half the odds, but he wanted to go back check with supervisor call-back again...I let it go as I didn't have more time to burn for another £20 only. I was happy to get my 16£ back.

if you put money on NZ and it helps I can send you some portions of the chat transcript in PM

So you bet on who would win the match and you were wrong? I'm very surprised they refunded, they are wrong to do it as their regulations would definitely back them. Must be a small bet that they don't care enough about to lose, but want to keep a customer.

They bowed to the evidence presented that the Match is indeed & remains officially a TIE
technicality used ( boundary count) was only to decide the world cup winner.....but that has nothing to do with official match result

That's very sweet of you, but I certainly didn't back the Kiwis.

For future reference its much easier to have a word with one of the umpires and get them to move the boundary rope or just get the overthrow rules wrong rather than deal with call centres.

Seems I did really well at the start when the World Cup was going with form, but then perhaps didn't pick a couple of surprise results and went searching for them in the wrong areas. West Indies in particular were one I probably backed too many times.

No worries Robbo.
Yes, I kept foolishly backing SA and then backed against them in their last match (my brother warned me!) and too much trust in the Windies as well.
Anyway, you got the biggest prize in the end. Enjoy the win and the build up to the Ashes! It must be buzzing over there, yes?

Yeah, I'd rather England won the World Cup and I suffered mid-table mediocrity in the tipping competition than vica versa!

I think everyone I know who has any interest in cricket is still looking backwards rather than forwards. I think the result is really still sinking in. Both what was achieved (first men's cricket world cup, first world cup in a sport I've followed at least since 2003) and the way it was achieved. No-one I know is ready to move on just yet!

Yes, they would have scored 75 (triple 25 points) for picking "NT" as opposed to 60 points for a correct margin win from either team.

Eng-N would not have accrued any points if it was a tie. Lucky that didn't happen as you infer because it's at odds with the reality of what did happen.
