BxBarracuda ran out of steam and was swamped at the finish post. LeoDaVinci wins the gold medal on a countback 4-0 vs. 4-1 from paper_aero, and Howie72 takes the last podium spot and the bronze medal.

The wooden spoon which cost paper-aero the gold medal came in Round 3, when a score of 7/8 gave six players a spoon each!

jonnowales was the only player to pick both finalists, and the winner, with his three adavance picks .. jonnowales was the defending title-holder, and srini701 was the silver medallist in the 2007 tipping comp.

After 24 long years New Zealand once again win the William Webb Ellis Cup, beating France in a re-run of the 1987 World Cup Final. The bronze medal game was also a re-run of the 1987 match, but this time Australia beat Wales.
