    Joales reacted to BillyHills in Sir Puntalot - R.I.P   
    I have been given the sad duty to announce that the owner of Punters Lounge Paul Ross, better known to many as Sir Puntalot passed away in hospital last night after losing his battle with Cancer. He was 45 years old.
    I have known Paul for nearly 20 years and many of the members got to meet him at various PL Race days and Poker tournaments.
    He was a very good friend to me and was always there on the end of the Phone, Skype, Slack etc....
    Paul was very straight forward and always strived to make Punters Lounge the best betting site on the internet, he knew this day was coming and has a team in place to carry on the good work and as he would say, its business as normal.
    The funeral will be next week sometime which will be a small family affair due to the Coronavirus situation.
     
    Many thanks for the continued support.

    First of all thanks to the 59 players who took part this month, its not been easy trying to work out the races in America, Hong Kong and Australia so well done for those who lasted the trip. Hopefully we will get some European racing in May.
    Craig Bluenose led for a long while and hung on to take the title despite Harry Faint getting a little too close for comfort in the last couple of days.
    Daisychain and Internetmails filled the cash spots.
    Roger had 13 winners and thanks to his 10/1 shot the other day made it past the magic mark and he takes the inaugural 'Most Winners' prize.

    Naps Competition in May
    Once again Punters Lounge will be paying enhanced prize money for the Naps competition during May. We may even get some European action with France, Germany, Ireland and the UK all threatening to return soon behind closed doors.
    The KO Cup comp will return and the qualifiers from March will be eligible to enter on Saturday May 2nd.
    We will accept bets from any racing from around the world during MAY and all bets outside of Europe will be settled at the Industry SP which appears on the ATR or the Hills Results section.
    (*Racing Post publish dividend prices which will be different from the Industry SP)
     
    **SP ONLY ON USA, AUSTRALIA, HONG KONG Racing**
    Prices accepted on European Racing 
     
    We realise backing horses from the other side of the world is not everyones cup of tea and fully understand those that choose to sit it out until things get back to normal. 
    I will continue to put the daily threads up and try and pinpoint what action is talking place. Just be aware of the off times, some US and AUS Racing will be very early in the morning.

    Joales reacted to BillyHills in Naps Competition - Proposal For April   
    Naps Comp for April
    Most of us are going through a difficult time at the moment and whilst taking part and visiting the forum is not on the top of the list of priorities for people, here at Punters Lounge we realise how much a bit of normality can help. We have members from all over the world and our thoughts are with everyone.
    Racing like many other industries are struggling but we have taken the decision to carry on with the Daily Naps Competition and as a reward to our loyal members Paul is increasing the Prize Money on offer for the month of April.
    The new proposals we spoke about will be coming in although we are going to leave out the KO Cup competition until May as it may be difficult for 30 players trying to pick 3 selections each on the 4th of April when we may have limited action.
    The qualifying places in March will remain in place for the next KO Cup Competition. 
    We will accept bets from any racing from around the world during April and all bets outside of Europe will be settled at the Industry SP which appears in the ATR or Sporting Life results section.
    (*Racing Post publish dividend prices which will be different from the Industry SP)
    We realise backing horses from the other side of the world is not everyones cup of tea and fully understand those that choose to sit it out until things get back to normal. 
    I will continue to put the daily threads up and try and pinpoint what action is talking place. Just be aware of the off times, some US and AUS Racing will be very early in the morning.
    Race times will be based on the UK 24 hour clock, anything after midnight will count towards the following day regardless of when the meeting started.
    Hopefully in four weeks time we will have some better news, in the meantime we wish you all the best.
     
    Prize Money For April
    1st: £100
    2nd: £75
    3rd: £50
    4th: £25
    Tipster with most winners with at least £10 profit will receive a £50 bonus

    Proposals 
    As promised is the tables thread I am looking at ways to reward the more consistent players and also ways to keep up the interest to the end of the month.
    I find that clear leaders sit on their profit and players attempting to qualify for the Cup are doing the same which leads to many players not picking selections in the last couple of days or more.
    Just to be clear I have no feelings one way or another on how players go about approaching the competition, we all have our own way of betting, we just want everyone to feel they have something to play for.
    I have noticed over the last few months some rumblings about the way players approach the Naps competition and there is no doubt we have had a shift in more players going for the speculative outsider than we have before.
    I had a look at the figures and we are regularly hitting around the 19% S/R these days where as before we were often around the 25% mark. This is totally down to more players going for 25/1+ selections.
    The players who genuinely sift through the cards to find their best bet of the day feel as though they have no chance in winning the monthly competition. I can see once a player has hit a 50/1 winner just playing for a Cup place is not the best of incentives.
    I think we can reward performance and profit and have been looking at the last 12 months figures to see how we can do it.
    At first I thought it would be best just to award the player with the highest strike rate a percentage of the winners prize but I also don't think encouraging people to select 1/4 shots everyday is helping anyone, so taking that a step further, what about if we had a profit figure that you needed to surpass as well?
    If we say took the highest strike rate of those that made a profit in the month of at least £10 that would kill off any ideas of odds on shots every single day. Of course you would expect some short priced horses to be chosen and I have no problem with that, if its a Nap, its a Nap but by having the £10 figure it really rewards those that have performed well that month.
    I have done a couple of tables to show how it would have panned out since January 2019 up until last month. Interestingly just 2 winners of the comp came out with the best S/R. 8 players were in the top 4 cash prizes but it would have given 7 players a prize that wouldn't have normally received anything. I would say overall that suits most type of punter. Of course people may bet differently knowing about the new prize.
    In the second table i took away the upper profit limit and this highlighted the problem of players sitting on a small profit just to qualify for the Cup, I feel this would just get worse if there was a prize for the highest S/R only.
    I propose a prize of £20 for player with the highest SR that has at least £10 profit on the month. This prize may well go to a player in the top 4 already but the winner of the whole competition will still quite rightly win the most cash whatever the result.
    The second part of the new formula is to limit the amount of players qualifying for the Cup. At the minute anyone finishing in profit (or even, lol) gains automatic qualification into the following months KO Cup. This can be as many as 30+ players and this often leads to a few players reaching a profit figure and then stopping posting for last few days of the month, or even worse players reaching 15 bets and then just stopping. 
    If we had a figure of 25 players only to qualify for the Cup then it would make it more exciting and something to aim for in the final few days of the month. I will also award a runners up prize for the KO Cup which has been asked for in the past.
    I am not looking to change any of the main rules of the comp, i think we should keep the main core of what the comp is all about ie; picking one horse per day. So we wont be changing that or messing about with stakes etc.....
    Let me know if you think this would be a way forward, please bare in mind we have a budget and we want to keep things simple.
