World Cup Betting 2006

I thought it would be easier if I posted links to the World Cup betting 2006 here. The current betting details can be found here as a PDF, but I also have the OpenOffice Calc and Excel files for download.

Here are the rules:

  • Each individual can only bet on a maximum of 5 teams.
  • Each individual can only make one bet per price category.
  • Prize money only awarded to first place winner(s)
  • If no first place winner, then prize money awarded to second place winner(s) and so on
  • All bets must be in by the 31/5/2006

There seems to be some commotion regarding the new and somewhat limiting rules on the traditional world cup betting. So, for the benefit of all:

Reiteration of the rules for World Cup betting:

- 1 team per category. Why? To make it more interesting. You have to really take a punt. Pick who you think will win. Not which two or three teams you think will win. It's not gambling then, is it?

- Minimum of five teams. Okay. We can relax the rules and make it six. If you want to bet on Trinidad or Costa Rica or Lapland and send one extra dollar into the pot, then who am I to complain?

These rules were put into place to make things more interesting. To limit the chance that someone might get two teams into the final. So when we watch the final (for those who will be at the party) it will create a bit of extra suspense.

I mean, it's all really about the top six or eight teams isn't it? No one really thinks that someone as lowly as Australia can win, do they?

Oh... wait... it seems that at least five people do. Well, more money in the coffers, I guess.

Regards,
Henry Dark.
