£100 Ryder Cup Tipping Competition

Postby PompeyJim » Fri Sep 10, 2021 10:16 am

OLBG are delighted to announce we will be running a £100 FREE to enter Ryder Cup Tipping Competition, there is a £25 top prize with 15 cash prizes up for grabs!

The 3 day Ryder Cup tournament originally scheduled for last year will get underway on Friday 24th September 2021 and finish with the 12 singles matches on Sunday 26th September 2021.

Team Europe are the defending Ryder Cup champions having won 17.5 - 10.5 at Le Golf National in Paris, 2018.

Here is a quick recap below of the competition rules and please feel free to ask any questions on this thread if any of the criteria is unclear.

ENTRY:

You do not have to enter this separately from the usual monthly Golf tipping competition. If you are a member of OLBG then you just need to add tips (with comments) on the 2020 Ryder Cup markets via the golf section on the ‘Make a Tip’ menu –

https://www.olbg.com/members/make-tip/5/230/-1

The competition is FREE to enter and you must have placed 15 or more settled tips (with comments) on the 2020 Ryder Cup markets to potentially qualify for a prize.

There will be plenty of Ryder Cup tipping markets added as we get closer to the Ryder Cup, the outright winner market is already available and additional options will be available when the teams have been finalised and we receive the odds. All Ryder Cup markets will count towards the Ryder Cup Tipping Competition including the daily match markets (foursomes, fourballs & singles).

PRIZES:

£100 Prize Fund with 15 Cash Prizes.

Winner: £25 – Member with the highest level stakes profit (LSP) and placed at least 15 tips with comments at the end of the Ryder Cup competition.
Runner Up: £10
3rd to 15th: £5

This is in addition to the normal monthly tipster competition prizes which you can still win during September based on the criteria for the Golf table.

As usual, prizes are doubled for Elite Tipsters and trebled for Super Elite Tipsters. You can check your current status for Golf via your ‘My Performance’ page:

https://www.olbg.com/tipsters/tables/elitestatus

LSP (Level Stakes Profit) -

One point will be placed on win tips, 1/2 a point Each Way (on applicable markets) for Each Way tips at the odds taken. So it doesn’t matter if you select a stake of 50 or 500 for these tips, if you place a win tip on a 5/1 winner you will then have a LSP of + 5 points. 1 Point is deducted for a losing tip so if you then had 3 losing tips, your level stakes profit will be down to + 2 points.

LSP>0

Members must finish with a positive LSP to potentially qualify for a prize.


TIPS & COMMENTS = 15 or more.

To potentially qualify for a prize you must place at least 15 tips with comments that contain at least 20 words with good quality reasoning justifying your tip.

Tips without comments are excluded, also poor comments without reasoning or any that contain less than the minimum criteria will mean the tip will be excluded from the competition.

For example,

“I am tipping Team USA to win because I think they have the best players, they are nailed on to win" – This is NOT an acceptable comment.

We just need a few good reasons as to why you are choosing the player. Also no copy and pasting of comments as you will need different and original comments for each tip!

Also NO copying tip comments from other members or websites, as we will check and any found will be excluded and deleted.

The OLBG Tip Comment Guide with useful pointers can be viewed via the link below -

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=61789

What we want here is for members to share their key insights about the Teams/Players they are tipping and why they think the tip is a good bet. Then site and app users viewing the Ryder Cup tips can read through lots of facts and opinions about each Team/Player.

At the end of the competition the comments will be analysed and if OLBG deem them not to be of good enough quality they will be excluded and deleted from the competition so please strive for the highest quality, good spelling and punctuation, as this makes it easier for your followers to read on the OLBG App and website.


The Ryder Cup Competition table standings will be available via the link below.

Upon completion of checking comment and tip eligibility the final table will then be confirmed and published during the week commencing 27th September and prizes will be paid into OLBG account within 14 days.

At present, these have not been sent through on the feed and we are working on trying to make them available, however, we cannot make any promises.

Without pricing up of the Singles it will have been really difficult to accumulate 15 selections without betting win and E/W on the overall markets (which is actually a nonsense for this particular event)

We understand your frustrations completely, we are very unhappy that these markets did not become available and we will be reviewing this certain competition for the future. There were enough markets to hit the 15 tip target as many tipsters did but at the same time having these markets available was far from ideal.

Apologies again for the Singles matches not being available for tipping, we will review this competition moving forward as this was extremely frustrating to all. As there were golf tipsters who placed the minimum required tip numbers the prizes will be paid as stated.

Well done to Johhny80 who finished with an 11.80 lsp and placed the minimum requirement of 15 tips. The prize winners are as follows:

1 Johhny80 11.80
2 DegenG 10.70
3 dwainec 5.18
4 KingofClay 4.86
5 snuggleupwithagoodbook 4.84
6 iontheball 4.12
7 igorukr 3.70
8 simoncoolhand 2.94
9 Fredgarvx 2.36


The detailed final table can be viewed here:

Prizes will be paid into OLBG accounts in due course.
