Congratulations to keith12 - Champion of nickelsearcher 10,000 Post Contest!

Congratulations to BStrauss3 - Runner-up of nickelsearcher 10,000 Post Contest!

At the moment we have a four way tie for the final (3rd) main event podium position - so we'll use the tie-breaker rules to figure it out.

Stand-by for that - I'm working on it now.

I believe I have the tie-breaker for final (3rd place) main event podium finish figured out.

Check me on this - anyone can point out an error I might have made in the following.

We have 4 players tied with 40 points each - well played!

John1	        40	<== Need Tie-Breaker	
mcshilling	40	<== Need Tie-Breaker	
Zurie	        40	<== Need Tie-Breaker	
jbuck	        40	<== Need Tie-Breaker


So - by the tiebreaker rules on Page 1:

•These tiebreaker rules apply to each final contest podium position; i.e., there will only be 3 prizes awarded.
•If two (or more) players are tied for any podium position after the five rounds, the first tiebreaker will be the number of winning (20 point) rounds

John1, mcshilling and jbuck each have one round win.

Zurie had a wonderful contest with an amazing 3 runner-up guesses - but alas no winning guesses so by tiebreaker rule 1 is eliminated from the main event podium.

Zurie is now eligible for an Appreciation Prize - stay tuned for that.

Tiebreaker rule 2 from Page 1:

•If two (or more) of the tied players have the same number of winning rounds, then the second tiebreaker will be the number of runner-up (10 point) rounds.

None of the three remaining contenders for the final podium finish have a runner-up round - so you are making this challenging - in a good and fun way.

Tiebreaker rule 3:
•If two (or more) of the tied players have the same number of winning and runner-up rounds, then the final tiebreaker will be the accuracy of guesses (starting with Winning guesses). Accuracy will be defined as the actual numerical difference and not the percentage difference.

And here is where we split the slight differences and determine the final podium winner.

Following is a summary of guess accuracy for the 5 rounds of winners:

Player	   Round	 Winning Actual Error
John1	       1	 685	 667	 18
BStrauss3      2	1050	1034	 16
mcshilling     3	1310	1327	-17
keith12	       4	1967	1870	 97
jbuck	       5	3300	3312	-12


keith12 and BStrauss3 are already Podium Winners -

Between the three final contenders I see jbuck at 12 nickels off.

Unless someone can point out a mistake in my methods:

Congratulations to jbuck - 3rd Place Podium Winner

Winner by final tiebreaker rule over mcshilling by 5 nickels guessed and over John1 by 6 nickels guessed.

Amazing how close that final position was.

We now need the contest winners to select their prizes - three available as shown on page1 of this thread.

keith12 needs to lead off - what do you choose?

Then BStrauss3 gets to choose - and jbuck is also going to receive a main event prize.

I ask that the contest winners reply publicly in this thread with their prize choices - then send me a private message using the CCF email system with a mailing address that US Postal Service can deliver to.

I've had a great time hosting this contest - and thank all of you for your participation.
