Main sponsor:
I am happy to announce that our main Sponsor for this year is Sportsbet.io
I believe no further introduction is necessary since we are talking about top crypto bookie here. I am sure you all have an account there and if you don't, what are you waiting for?
The deal includes:
1. 100 mBTC cash for pool rewards (around 2200$ at the moment)
2. 0.5 mBTC free bet for all participants paid when the league starts and we have final number of participants
3. 1 mBTC for each week yellow cap winner

This year we will not have free bet challenge. Instead we will have at least one and probably more competitions with merchandise as rewards and we will award yellow cap as mentioned above.

Supporting sponsor
buwaytress -- "contact me for advice on blockchain/crypto content strategy. Non-profit only!"
Added additional 5 mBTC to the pot.

How this pool works
Welcome to Italian Serie A Prediction pool discussion thread. My intention is to run a pool on Superbru for the next season. This will be organized very similar as current Premier League Pool and Champions League pool. If you took part in any of them no need to read further, you already know most stuff.

For prediction we will use Superbru page and we will have complementary discussion topic here on the forum for participants only. Superbru has been around for years and they are very good at providing custom pools for all kinds of sports. The idea of the game is to predict correct scores from all the games which gives you max points (3). If you get outcome correct but not the score there is still some points awarded (1-1.5). The winner is the person with most points at the end of the season.


Buy in

This is a paid pool and buy in is set to 1.5m BTC, just about 33$ at this moment. This seems like a very fair price for whole year of prediction fun + nice prizes boosted by our sponsor. All the collected money will be used for prizes.

Rewards:

We have total of 132 mBTC in the pool this season and rewards will be given out for following positions:
1. Place - 60 mBTC
2. Place - 35 mBTC
3. Place - 17 mBTC (fees are paid from this prize)
4. Place - 10 mBTC
5. Place - 5 mBTC
Highest overall yellow cap - 5 mBTC


Remarks:
*There is no sharing of the prizes, Superbru has implemented tie breakers and I will use their final table as basis to pay out rewards

Hopefully BTC will be worth much more by the time we end the pool and prizes will be so much better Smiley

Escrow and payment address(same as last year)
I am escrow for the funds on below mentioned address. In order to participate in the Serie A pool please pay 1.5 mBTC (around 33$ at the moment) to below address and send me a tx via pm so I know who sent the money. Be sure to include your Sportsbet and Superbru usernames in the same PM. After day or two check the paid participants part to see if I added you there for extra security. Thank you.

I will reserve this spot for any update needed

Best match day result: 10% of the pot
@Trofo, I think that should be written "Best round result" or am I wrong?

If you don't believe it or don't get it, I don't have the time to try to convince you, sorry.

That is the same thing but your suggestion will be easier to understand for most of the members so I changed it. I am used to term match day because of fantasy football.

I'm always interested in joining various prediction pools, but I'm not sure whether I will join this or no. I don't follow Serie A that much as La Liga or EPL, so it would be a bit difficult for me to predict, especially when we talk about smaller clubs. So, I don't really know now.

interested in joining the pool, think that it could be interesting, but i do not get this best round result, think that reward is too low, and should be forfeited, or rules a bit changed, or i do not understand the competition

let's say there is a 20 participants, and $30 entry, that is $600 for the pool, and best round result is 10% - $60, with 38 rounds in Italy, it is $1,5 - not worth sending on a BTC or ETH network, just a suggestion to adjust the prize pool

nevertheless, you can put me on the list of participants

You got it wrong. Best round results is intended as a reward for highest points in single round when all rounds are over. Let's say you are doing bad in the pool and have no chance for the prize. You can still have one hell of a last round and make 25 points in last round and snatch the reward for best round 60$ as per your example. That gives incentive to all participants to keep playing until the end, no matter the results.

Edit: I could have worded that part better. I can see how it could confuse participants who didn't play previous pools. Will change it a bit

I'm always interested in joining various prediction pools, but I'm not sure whether I will join this or no. I don't follow Serie A that much as La Liga or EPL, so it would be a bit difficult for me to predict, especially when we talk about smaller clubs. So, I don't really know now.

I am not following Serie A as well but I have no problem playing 20$ to have some extra fun. I know I will do badly but that doesn't bother me since I bet on higher amounts every day. This way I can use the pool as a sort of extra check if my bets are realistic. I just lock my picks and check out what the best participants have for particular game.

Edit: I would be interested to join or run La liga pool as well. If you know there is some interest we could run something. I am just afraid we will not have enough participants. PL is usually first choice than CL and then it could end up too expensive for most members to continue joining La Liga, Serie A or whatever else. I would also be up for German League, Europa League and Croatian league if I could find at least 10 interested people.

yeah, it will be hard to have more than ten people for some leagues, i would join La liga as well, do not know about PL, but Champions league would like to join as well, Bundesliga for sure

think that this will be hard for Croation league

Exactly the same with me. I'd be terrible with predictions as I don't really follow the league at all and will only watch a handful of big or vital games, but I'm glad people are starting their own pools for various leagues and I encourage users to start their own for their domestic leagues.

I am not following Serie A as well but I have no problem playing 20$ to have some extra fun. I know I will do badly but that doesn't bother me since I bet on higher amounts every day. This way I can use the pool as a sort of extra check if my bets are realistic. I just lock my picks and check out what the best participants have for particular game.

I would also be up for German League, Europa League and Croatian league if I could find at least 10 interested people.

You'd probably get more interest for La Liga to be honest, though again I don't really follow it that much apart from the big games. It's arguably the second biggest league to the PL though, but that doesn't necessarily translate to users wanting to join a pool here. Maybe make a post in the local boards trying to drum up interest. I'm sure there'd be a lot more users interested from the specific local boards/

I think it is a good idea and I will probably join this one. I'm not 100% sure yet so don't count me in just yet, but I welcome this type of content and some fun won't harm anyone and it makes watching matches a bit more exciting after all Cheesy

I would love to do something for La Liga as well but I would prefer to have a few words with some sports crazy member from Spanish section first to get his opinion and help with spreading the word. Anybody knows such member? If so please point him to this post or something. I also believe La Liga would probably generate more interest.

I am putting you on the list with question mark added. It is not like you signed up for anything, this is more like to just measure the interest. I would definitely recomend that you join a pool here on the forum, they really are great fun. I have put links to the PL and CL pools we played this season in OP so you can check them out.

Thanks for adding those two , I will most likely join the Premier league one as it is much more interesting and I have much more in depth knowledge about Premier league. Yeah, leave me with a question mark for now with this one.

I should be joining this too, I guess. I'm already a part of the current pool even though I miss making my picks a number of times, probably due to it being a free pool.

As Hilarious has already pointed out Spanish La Liga might get more participants than the Serie A, despite it being a free pool we are just 3 users for the season. If we are able to reach the minimum number of participants required l, then you can count me in, too.

Yes you are, it was a test one, for the current season, but even if it was for free, without any prize pool, it's still a competition

I see you've miss few rounds, so your position is not real, we will see how you will predict the next season  Wink

Well yeah, $20 for whole season is nothing, considering how much money we gamble on daily basis. So, I may join too.
La Liga pool would be great. If we will find enough participants for Serie A pool, I'm sure that there will be interest in La Liga, especially considering big number of Barca and Real fans here. Though, not everyone is ready to put their own money Smiley.
Not sure about Europa league. Group stage isn't very interesting with many not well known teams. It's only getting interesting in playoff stages. In football threads I see lot of people from Croatia, so probably even your league may get some interest. I also started to follow your league a bit, mainly because of Gorica team Smiley.

I will do a thread like this one for La liga in few days as well and then stop there. I am counting on hilarius to run premier league and champions leagues pools next season as well. So if somebody wants to be in all of them that is 100$. That could already be a bit much for most of the people since all leagues start in about same time.

We Croatians always like to get money without doing any work so gambling comes naturally  Grin

Gorica you say, hmm  there is a story behind that I bet.

Our league was really and still is interesting , with 4 teams fighting for Europan spot between 2-4 place. How come you decided to follow Gorica? It is quite an interesting choice  Grin  I'm rooting for Osijek to win 2nd place, they play the best football after the restart.

I'm very curious too in this story with Gorica
btw, I will start a topic dedicated to our league at the beginning of the next season, cause the world has to read what our federation is capable of (corruption theme  Wink)

Reason why I started to follow Gorica is simple. This team is managed by manager from my country. Also, our best young player is playing for Gorica, unfortunately he got painful injury and haven't played much yet. In general, ouf football level is so shitty and we rarely can see our managers working in foreign teams. So, it's interesting to follow his work in Gorica. After pandemy they played solid, but were too far away from spots in Europa league qualifiers. But I think next season it's possible to achieve.

I've been on the lookout for Serie A prediction pool for a while now, as it's one of the leagues i follow/watch/love the most.
It will be awesome if we get enough people to join and get this going.

By the way, what's the minimum required players needed (i'm new to superbru)?

Good, welcome in.

There is no minimum required by the superbru system, but as we are trying to run a prize pool, the minimum should be at least 10 to be ok, 15 to be cool and more than that to be great  Cool

If you don't believe it or don't get it, I don't have the time to try to convince you, sorry.
