1995 Playoff Contest

RULES:

Before the start of each round (GMs do not have to predict the results of the entire playoffs, it is a round-by-round process), participants will be asked to submit a prediction on the result of each series in the round.  The prediction must be in the following format:

"Team A" in "#" games.

A participant will be given 5 points for correctly predicting the winner of the series.  If they predict the correct number of games, they will receive a bonus point for a total of 6 points.  Should they predict the correct winner of the series, but not in the correct number of games, the participant will lose one point for each game their prediction was wrong.  For example, if you predicted "Team A" in 7 games and they win in 5 games, you would receive 3 points total.  5 points for predicting the correct winner, but minus 2 points for being 2 games off the correct number of games.  Participants receive no points for predicting the wrong series winner.

At the conclusion of the playoffs, the participant with the most points wins.  In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by who got the most points in the championship round series.  If there is still a tie, the winner will be the participant who had the most points in the round prior to the championship and so on.  In the event there is still a tie, the Commissioner (or member of the EC should the Commissioner be involved in the tie) shall roll a die to determine the winner.  Failure to submit picks for any round results is an automatic disqualification from the contest.

1st prize: $4,000,000 -

2nd prize: $2,000,000 -

3rd prize: $1,000,000 -

Random Prize: $500,000 (Awarded to GM who does not finish in top three, but submits picks in every round) -
