      Re: Westgate SuperContest Week 10

      Another bountiful week for possible stale lines plays, with only 3 of the 12 games lined up on the SuperContest Wednesday number on the Saturday morning SuperBook board.

      The Dread Pirate Roberts’ stale line plays for the current week approaching the 11AM Sat contest close are set forth below, in ranked order (with a last look onsite at 10:35 a.m.).

      I’ve added the Pinnacle juice – all off the same base underlying line number as the contest number this week – on the four otherwise tied plays (by push-rate math) above and below the five cut. It’s very straightforward to apply Crick’s (2W2P2S) Pinny tiebreaker this week, even for a mathematically challenged liberal arts major.

      ATL -3

      JAX -3.5
      CLE +12

      BUF -3 -117
      NYG -2.5 -115

      The “undercard” that didn’t make the five-cut, including the two plays that lost the tie-break:

      DEN +7.5 -114
      NYJ -2.5 -110

      MIN -1
      LAR +12

      For a brief explanation and a link to a longer one, see post #10 in this thread:

      http://forums.eog.com/showthread.php...Contest-Week-2

      Prior Pirate stale lines plays are 24-20-1 YTD, at 54.5% and hypothetically tied at around 445th or so.

      All, unfiltered stale lines plays are at 30-46-3 YTD.

      The "undercard" plays that didn't make the five-cut are 6-26-2 YTD.

        Squarepants.....if the LAR were +12 would that be the largest selected side in the history of the supercontest?

          Oops, thanks, LOL, yeah that would trump IND last week.

          So, yeah, LAR -12. Maybe that's why I'm in the pack and not in the lead . . . .

                                  Tough day on the course for our favorite Scot.

                                  Rough to rough and then bunker to bunker.

                                  The kind of day that will get your crew muttering.

                                  Winding up with a dreaded (pun intended) double bogey on the 10th hole, at 1-4 for the day, and 25-24-1 YTD.

                                  Math’s not looking good for this hypothetical mechanical stale lines entry to win or cash, with the winner likely to hit in the 57 to 59 range this year.

                                  All, unfiltered stale lines plays went 3-6 for the day, for 33-52-3 YTD.

                                  The undercard of plays that didn’t make the five-cut went 2-2 today, for 8-28-2 YTD.
                                  Never confuse price with value, consensus with wisdom, or conformity with courage.

                                        It took a blocked extra point to end the Thursday night magic for me, but I'll take 3-1-1 on a week in which lots of people struggled.

                                        Currently at 30 points and happy to have clipped one win off of the leader this week. I am within striking distance, but still haven't gotten the sort of white hot run you need to win this thing. My biggest strength thus far has been the ability to consistently win the week. Only three losing weeks, and all have been at 2-3. Avoiding the nightmare week has kept me close.

                                        As an aside, one of the leaders plays in my very small underground poker game in Houston (Vegaswehaveaproblem). Probably 20-25 consistent players in this game, and the two of us are near the top of the contest. I didn't realize he was in it until this week.

                                                Seems like the leaders are closer to a realistic winning percentage instead of the upper 70's that we have seen in the past.

                                                So is it easy to assume that these computer guys are one hit wonders? Where is that David Fron Lane guy this year? Fezzik? Past winners?

                                                    Hopefully, the herd at the top will thin a bit and those numbers will go up.

                                                    But this is why I've resisted kneejerk calls to expand the number of entries that cash simply because the field has gotten larger.

                                                    During the past two 50-cut years, the contest paid only $2,989.05 and $2,217.35 at the bottom end with ties, at least according to the SuperBook's historical summary.

                                                    The payout at the money cut needs to be consistently at or above 5K before further change is considered, in my opinion at least.

                                                    Some folks apparently get a charge out of putting in their twitter profile that they cashed in the SuperContest, but that doesn't do it for me. I don't like to see the higher top-end payouts diluted only to produce a boatload of piddling payouts at the bottom end.
                                                    Never confuse price with value, consensus with wisdom, or conformity with courage.

                                                      Yep, there may be a mathematical correlation between larger fields and higher winning scores, but there still isn't a lockstep correlation where each year that we have a record field we get a record or super high winning score.

                                                      And I'm fairly sure that mechanically fading the prior year's winner would be profitable in more years over the last quarter century plus of the contest than mechanically following the LY winner.

                                                      As an example, last year's winner's two entries are at 21-29 (T2209 or so) and 19-31 (T2529 or so).

                                                      Winners who immediately try to go tout make a good business decision -- at least in terms of trying to parlay their maximum likely marketing edge from a SuperContest win.

                                                      Bettors who buy their service? Not so much. (But, then again, those who pay for picks generally should be used to making bad sports betting business decisions.)

                                                        Got that right, alfie. Everyone is playing against the same lines, and to the extent that playing stale lines provides a mathematical edge as against later-week market numbers, that "secret to success" is fairly widely known. Finishing a half pick behind the money cut pays exactly the same as finishing 2748th, so one can beat a lot of less savvy players with, e.g., stale lines play, and still have exactly nothing.

                                                          There has only been one winner at greater than 72.5% (CH BALLERS, 76.2%, 2014). Luck over skill is by far the most important element in any one person actually winning the Westgate. However, there is a large population of dead money as shown by the pathetic overall W/L record. Good or excellent cappers have a significant advantage, but variance rules the contest. For example, Fezzik hasn't come close to cashing since winning in 2008 and 2009, going 369-369-27 (w/ 2 entries the last 2 years).

                                                          Even as a good or excellent capper, its a long shot to win.

                                                          But this is why I've resisted kneejerk calls to expand the number of entries that cash simply because the field has gotten larger.

                                                          During the past two 50-cut years, the contest paid only $2,989.05 and $2,217.35 at the bottom end with ties, at least according to the SuperBook's historical summary.

                                                          The payout at the money cut needs to be consistently at or above 5K before further change is considered, in my opinion at least.

                                                          Some folks apparently get a charge out of putting in their twitter profile that they cashed in the SuperContest, but that doesn't do it for me. I don't like to see the higher top-end payouts diluted only to produce a boatload of piddling payouts at the bottom end.
                                                          42nd to 50th place each pays 0.1% of total payout or $3,792 this year, a trivial dilution of the top-end payouts. Even eliminating 30th to 50th place "saves" roughly $133k, much less than half the 8% rake, and a very small effect on top-end payouts.

                                                            The payout needs a restructure. While it's cool to have over a million dollar prize finishing in 50th and making a few hundred is brutal. A 7500 min cash would be a nice touch. Plus this isn't getting smaller. 3000 entries next year is possible. You can still have your huge top prize while allowing people who finish in the 1.7% range to make it worth it. I don't want a 20% paid out field like a poker tourney either though. Just stating the numbers can be reworked.

                                                              I'll let you know how I feel about the payout structure depending on what happens to my 68th place entry over the next 7 weeks.

                                                                  Makes perfect sense.

                                                                    Yep, I didn't favor the rake either.

                                                                    So if not favoring the rake and further dilution of the prize pool at this point is whining, fine, I'm whining about both of them.

                                                                    Since I don't favor either, it's just not persuasive to me to point to the rake when I say I don't favor further dilution of the prize pool at this point.

                                                                    Not in favor of either one.

                                                                    Heck, I love the Gold prize, 0% rake and 100% payout to a single winner. In the end there can be only one. If you hit 60% playing against Wednesday's numbers on Saturday morning, cool, here's some ice cream and a participation trophy.

                                                                    It's just my preference in contests to have larger prizes rather than a multitude of piddling payouts, even when I cash as to the latter.

                                                                    And that's unfortunate about the delay in the Week 10 standings being posted, but that also doesn't lead to me having a different preference on contest prize payouts.

                                                                    Look, if they dilute the payouts further, it won't be the end of the world. And I appreciate what you do in these threads.

                                                                    But that's my preference on prize payouts.
