That Was The Weekend That Was

That Was The Weekend That Was
Monday,February 8,2016

Another weekend has been and gone and as we've come to expect, Leicester City once again stole the headlines. It was a weekend of upsets and unpredictability in the sporting world, and I'm here to look back at who profited from the chaos in our Weekend Pools.


Across the Pond, the Greatest Show on Earth proved to be nothing more than a damp squib, as the Broncos, led by the evergreen Peyton Manning, proved the Bookies wrong by romping to a convincing 24-10 victory over the Panthers. One man who saw this coming was rickypunting, who earned the £50 first prize in our £2 SuperBowl Pool by scoring an impressive 95 points. Well done to Ricky, and also to Salbags and Kirwan1 who picked up the place money.


There was drama again in this week's PGA Tour event, the Phoenix Open, as Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler battled it out all the way to the 5th playoff hole.The man from Japan eventually claimed victory after seeing his opponent hit his tee shot in the water at the Par 4 17th. Both players were extremely popular picks in our Fantasy Fourballs Pool this week, which led to a seven-way split for 1st place in the £2 pool.


Well done to jeffkimber (2), dlsaff (4) and jazua who all claimed a share of the prize, and also to Legend, who finished 1st and 2nd in the £10 Pool and took home just over £100 for his efforts!


There were plenty of winners in our Premier League Pools this weekend, none bigger than Mr Incredible, who dominated the Fantasy 5-a-side by having three of the top four scoring entries. His teams, all including Robert Elliot, Joleon Lescott and Jermain Defoe, helped him to a tidy £140 in total! Incredible effort!


Another big weekend winner was Withnai160, who profited from some last minute chaos at Anfield to scoop a cool £138 in our Premier League Matchday 25 Last Longest Pool. With his pick Newcastle claiming a 1-0 win at home to West Brom, his two competitors were left counting the cost of Sunderland's last minute equaliser to deny their pick of Liverpool a win. Tough break!


Our biggest Live Match Pool of the weekend was saved for the huge mid-table clash between Chelsea and Man United, and it was sodafc who came out on top in the £1 game thanks to his predictions of a draw and a Diego Costa goal. Well done to sodadfc, and also to jeffkimber who took down the £5 pool to win £50! Well played!


There were some brilliant scores in our £2 Weekend Quickie Pool, which was eventually shared between 1981westbrom and Suejinski. Both players scored 90 out of a possible 110, which turned their weekend predictions into £40! Top effort from both players!


With some fantastic Golf, Darts and Football to come in the next week, there's no better time to re-invest your winnings and turn your sporting prediction into cash at i-pools!
