We're all done, the marathon is over. BxBarracuda was unable to catch Sypher, who won gold by a comfortable 7½ pts (it was 14 points some four weeks ago) .. trev1 picks up bronze, his first-ever medal in any FT tipping comp!

The last week of the season saw 5 players score a weekly win and KrivoyRog collect his 15th wooden spoon for the season. He fell two short of the 17 spoons collected by ozzz2002 .. these two players were the only ones who were in double digits! For LeoDaVinci it was his 9th weekly win, and for N-Bomb it was his 8th. These two players have the honour of finshing one-two in weekly wins.

What would've happened if srini701 and/or Howei72 were able to emulate their 2nd half performance in the first half of the season! Ditto szabs and paper-aero, but the 1st into 2nd (see table at right).

ozzz2002 scored yet another bonus pick to make it 54 for the season, but he fell four short of the 58 collected by dg_dave! Two players did not make it into double figures .. they finished with just 9 bonus picks for the season.

This year's comp was the 6th edition of the FLC tipping comp and, after 5 different winners, Sypher becomes the first player to win this comp twice (he won the 3rd comp back in 2008-09).

Congratulations to the three medallists, and commiserations to the rest of us; there's always next year. We start another 46 laps in early August.

At 46 weeks, it's definitely the most tipped...but I think there is another that takes about as long with far fewer threads.

Congrats to the podium; I'll probably never get there in this comp, but it is a lot of fun.

The last minute push out of last place, I'm pleased with myself. Fantastic job by everybody on the podium - can't imagine getting that many correct, and a job very well done by gtho4 for all the writeups throughout the season.

Excellent, and complicated, comp gtho4, thanks for running it. I think I like the full bonus points over 1/2 ones.
