Most of you can look away, either because you’re not involved in the Hockey Pool Cath Ennis set up, or because you’re below Cath in the standings.
For the few that are remaining, here are the latest results:
This week’s big mover was Lavaland, leaping up into second place above my brave bunch of Nordic skaters. Chall is still in the lead, but for how long? Bringing up the rear are Gerty and Ricardipus, now level on 114 points.
Just for my own amusement I also plotted the average points per week (to see better the overall change in fortunes). What I got was a bit surprising:
The average number of points is increasing. On further investigation, this is mainly because the first two weeks garnered less points for most of us (the average points per week were 10.2, 8.8 31.5, 20.8, 24.1, 31.0), and their effects are still being “washed out” of the overall mean.
Anyway, congratulations to Lavaland for doing so well this week, and boos to chall for being too good for the rest of us. If anyone on the pool is
sad with no life interested, the R code to draw these graphs is in the Google doc. Ask Cath for permission to look at it.
