I am confused a little by this to be honest. But if I go by who I assume to win. Unladen swallow. Kairsiaks and plays 1 to draw. Moghedien. Aris1970. Texaspete09.


If you think any of the games will be a draw you should select the Draw option

Referring to the restrictions for winning the cash prize, if I get one pick wrong in any round I'm ineligible for the prize since any wrong pick results in -5 for the round?

not confident enough, eh? ;)

OK, no one calls me a chicken  :angry:

 

I add myself to the coupon. So it is Aris, Unladen Swallow, Karaiskakis and Moghedien.

If I think there will be 1 draw in any of the 5 games I don't bet on any of the other ones and just put up a draw claim ?.

I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

I edited my bet above. Just a quick question. Rules say that we need not to play only 2-3 but 4-5 picks. Is it meant at each round or "at least in one round"?

''3. To be eligible for the £50 prize, the winner of the Cold Winter Snap Competition may never select only 2 or 3 picks from each coupon (i.e. the player must have selected either 4 picks, 5 picks, or the Draw Option in each round of the competition where a coupon is published)''

To clarify: The rules allow you to pick any number of selections each round (up to 5 OR the Draw Option)

 

However to be eligible for the cash prize you must pick a minimum of 4 selections (OR the Draw Option) each round.
