Basketball Playoff Bracket Pool Rules
This format is simple enough for the novice, yet challenging enough for the most serious basketball fans:
- Members try to pick the winner of each NBA Playoff series
- For each series, they also pick how many games they think the series will go (4, 5, 6 or 7 games)
- Points are awarded for each winning pick, with bonus points for how close they come to the correct series length
- Points values increase as the tournament progresses (points per round are configurable by the Pool Administrator)
- The winning team is the team with the most points at the end of Playoffs.
