That Was The Weekend That Was

That Was The Weekend That Was
Monday,February 15,2016

It's that time again. The dust has settled on another weekend of action packed sporting drama and I'm here to tell you who has those sought after Pools Winners e-mails sitting in their inbox.



In a weekend where we saw North London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal gain ground in the title race, England demolish Italy in the 6 Nations and American unknown Vaughn Taylor take down the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, here at i-pools we paid out over £1,500 in prizes to those of you who best predicted the weekend events.



There's no better place to start than our increasingly popular £2 Weekend Quickie, which was split four ways this time as paullovatt, bookiebasher, dlsaff and jeffkimber all managed to score an impressive 80/110 to win £25 each. Paullovatt was left funking for a Phil Mickelson win on Sunday evening which would have given him the outright 1st place prize, but unfortunately the American slipped up at the final hole to allow bookiebasher, dlsaff and jeffkimber to steal a share of the money. Top predicting by all!



Our AT&T Pebble Beach Fantasy Fourballs £2 Pool was also a close-run thing, eventual winner Elitina pipped Withnail160 by just four points to claim the £100 first prize. His team, including runner-up Phil Mickelson and third placed Jonas Blixt, beat off 97 other entrants to land him the money. Well played Elitina! I-pools stalwart Swillyboy took home the first prize of £105.15 in the £10 pool, beating off rodders by just four points thanks to good performances from Fredrik Jacobsen and Bill Haas.



Our largest Match Pool of the weekend came on Sunday afternoon when Tottenham visited Manchester City, and bonified was the big winner as he correctly predicted a 2-1win for Spurs and a goal for Harry Kane! A great prediction, which earned him just shy of £50! Well played bonified!



There were plenty of fallers in our Premier League Last Longest Pools this weekend, mainly due to West Brom earning a surprise 1-0 win at Everton. Only 8 of 30 entrants this week managed to find a winner, so well done to 1981westbrom, PanicoAntoniou, gary9804, jeffkimber, Jammy11, paullovatt, pcm37 and SWILLYBOY who managed to safely navigate through the wreckage. Good luck in Matchday 27 to all!



Our Premier League Fantasy 5-a-side was also an incredibly close-run thing, with just 18 points separating the top 20 entrants. Withnail160 managed to cling on to a £100 victory by just one point, thanks largely to a 24 point haul from his attacking midfielder Wes Hoolahan. We'll be slightly tweaking the scoring system for the next Premier League 5-a-side, so stay tuned with us via e-mail and Social Media for all the updates.



It was also a good weekend for Suejinksi and bookiebasher, who both scooped first place prizes in our Irish Racing Pools from Navan and Gowran Park. Bookiebasher is fast turning into the man to beat in our Racing Pools, he's jumped into top place in our February Racing Hall of Fame and looks to be in prime position for the £50 prize!



Looking ahead, this week sees the return of the Champions League, Week three of the Premier League Darts and another star-studded PGA Tour event in the Northern Trust Open. We'll have our usual array of Pools covering all the action, so why not turn your weekend winnings into more cash at i-pools.
