The rules are changed for this week's challenge, so please read carefully.

 

In addition to predicting the outcome of the challenge match, you will need to submit 2 tie-breaker predictions.  Hopefully, we'll have a Sole Survivor by lunch time on Saturday.

 

Tie-breaker 1:  How many goals will Hearts score?  Closest to the correct answer wins the tie-breaker.

 

Tie-breaker 2: The minute of the game that Hearts score their first goal.  Closest to the correct minute wins the tie-breaker.

 

Also, and this is important, submit your prediction to me via PM, NOT by posting on the thread. That way, no-one has the advantage of seeing what others are predicting prior to his own prediction.

 

So .... 

 

A valid prediction, sent to me via PM, will have the following format:

 

HOME win

4 goals

23 minutes.

 

The challenge match is in the next post.  Good luck!

Here is the next challenge of the Elimination stage of the competition.

 

Hearts  v Livingston.  Saturday, September 25, 2021.

 

The outcome possibilities are: Home Win, or Away Win or Draw.  Each player chooses one of those outcomes by posting on this thread before the round deadline.

 

Remember, include your two tie-breakers as described above.  Also, send your prediction to me via PM.  When I've received all four predictions I'll post them on the thread, then the thread will be locked until after the match.

 

The deadline for posting is Friday, September 24 at 6PM, Edinburgh time.

For those who have already sent in their prediction, you can change your mind until I post them of the thread, then they are set.

The astute observers on JKB will have quickly spotted that the Sole Survivor competition will definitely end this weekend.

 

Anything other than a Hearts win means the competition is over with no winner.  Booo!

 

A Hearts win with either 1 or 2 goals scored means that the winner will be either @Auldreekie1874 or @corryjambo.

 

A Hearts win with either 3 or more goals scored means that the winner will be either @Gambo or @John Findlay

 

Good luck to you all.  Having got this far was a great achievement.  :clap:

Gambo wins the tournament.  :munny:

 

@Gambo was a very worthy winner.  In the competition he got 8 out of 9 predictions correct, including the last 8 in a row!!!!!  :bravo:

Great competition 👏

 

Congratulations to Gambo

 

 

Is there any chance you can set up a thread Gambo, giving us your coupon predictions each week. You seem to be a bit of an expert, could make all of us erseholes rich

Well done Gambo

 

Got beat at the final hurdle (Killie game) but predicted us to win 2-0 yesterday so still wouldn't have won!!

 

Well deserved😍

Well Done Gambo......can't believe you did NOT predict HMFC to beat Celtic in the 1st game of the competition:whistling:.

 

Thanks to Maple Leaf for his sterling work throughout the competition.

 

PS. I was shocked to find out the final game to predict the outcome was HMFC vs Livi after you had set out the 2 tie breaker scenarios:lol:

Stay tuned.  :toasting:
