Playoff Hockey Bracket Pool Rules

This format is simple enough for the novice, yet challenging enough for the most serious hockey fans:
  • Members try to pick the winner of each NHL 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 Commissioner)
  • The winning team is the team with the most points at the end of Playoffs.
