Well at the end of a thoroughly captivating competition the only entrants remaining with a "will to live" are:
Mr I - 89 points
Tony C - 72 points
Jpredmore - 70 points
By sticking with it to the end they all deserve a prize; I must say it was rather complex and with hindsight...blah, blah, blah...
I'm just going to verify (or is it validate) Mr I's score, unless he has it completely wrong I think he is the convincing winner. I will be back shortly to confirm.
OK I'm back and I have MR I's score at 93. Admittedly I could have miscounted as one needs a degree in such things to compute, however allowing for a degree of uncertainty it was certainly a lot more than 72 and on that basis I declare Mr I the winner of this enthralling competition. Thankfully the next world cup is 4 years away...
The winning scoresheet.
I will be back again in another little while to announce the prize.
I figured after such a tense and stressful competition you may want to relax with a large strong coffee whilst squeezing on something nice and soft and perhaps a lucky pen for entering competitions. Here are your prizes Mr I...congratulations! Please send me a PM with your address.
