Last Man Standing Gameweek 9 .We have a Winner!!!

in Sports Talk Social2 years ago


The Final Two.

Gameweek 9 is finally upon us and the last two contestants
have made their selections

@gingerup picked Southampton who were to play Everton at 3pm today.

@gone-hive selected West Ham United and they play Wolves at 5.30pm/

With internationals and the Queen dying there was a long delay in getting to Game week 9 but we are here now and we have a result.


Drum roll please.
This competition has been going on since August and I am finally glad we have come to a conclusion. It was a long enough cycle this time around. Last Man Standings usually last for 7-8 weeks but this one went on a wee bit longer. It is some achievement to pick 8 teams each week and they all win. It does take a little bit of luck but there has to be some knowledge and research done as well. Most people went strong from the start in this contest but some went weak and they just nearly made it. It was the strong teams that actually tripped them up. Liverpool have not been performing lately and many fell on their results.

@gingerup found out the result of his match early. A 2-1 battering by Everton. Southampton are a team that win 4 nil or get beat easily and this was the latter this weekend. So he had to wait until 5.30pm. Strange selection Southampton. I may ask him his opinion on it. Maybe it was the rivals Everton which he thinks are weak but I have to say Frank Lampard is finally looking to be getting a tune out of them.

@gone-hive 's choice West Ham win then the contest and we had to wait until 5.30pm GMT for this match to be held. West Ham won this fairly comfortably so I would like to announce

Congratulations. You have received 30 SBI and hold the Last Man Standing Shield until the next round. A coveted trophy. I may add that they go straight through to Round 2 of the next competition as an added extra as well.

@gingerup . Congratulation buddy for getting to the final. It was a gallant effort and you fell at the last hurdle. 10 SBI has been sent to your account as well. You can check your balance in the wallet section in Peakd under "Other".

Here is proof of transaction for both prizes.

So there we have it. The winner of the first Last Man Standing Contest. We are only a month away from the world cup so I was thinking of doing around round right after Christmas. Thanks to all of you who played. I was a good bit of fun and it added interest to the start of the premiership along with all the crew in @hiveepl. I will tag all the usual suspects when I am starting it up again so watch this space. It is apt that I sign Last Man Standing off the day Spurs have their first defeat. 😭. But the next time I start this off we will be top of the League!!


Congrats to the winner

A 2-1 loss to Everton is not a Saints were in the ascendancy in the latter stages and Everton needed some excellent goalkeeping to stay in front.


@blanchy! You Are Alive so I just staked 0.1 $ALIVE to your account on behalf of @stevermac1966. (1/10)

The tip has been paid for by the We Are Alive Tribe through the earnings on, feel free to swing by our daily chat any time you want.

You are right Steve. I was watching the Fulham Newcastke game yesterday and that was a battering. Got them mixed up.



Lol....What is SBI does it work

Basically if you have hive basic income shares , they upvote your posts forever so the more you have the higher the upvote. 30 is a good start .

Oh wow.. that's incredible...can I convert normal hive to SBI? And can I convert SBI to hive?

You can sponsor someone an SBI share for 1 Hive. If you sponsor someone the sponsor gets 1 share and the person sponsored get 1 share. In order to sponsor someone you send 1 Hive (or whatever amount of Hive ) to @steembasicincome and write the sponsors Hive name in the memo box. Hive basic income will do the rest. I am not sure if you can convert SBI to Hive. You may have to contact them on Discord. But you will get the amount back in post upvotes after a while anyway so people don't really do this.

Conversion of SBI back into Hive is subject to our refund policy, which is intentionally restrictive to prevent abuse.

In most cases it is better for the person to find somebody that will purchase their subscription units (the going rate is usually ~ 0.50 HIVE, since enrollment is 1 HIVE but creates 2 units - one for sponsor and 1 for sponsee).

Finally... I bowed out gracefully 😂🤣. I actually picked the Saints because Everton hasn't really kicked in yet. Congratulations to @gone-hive you sometimes make tough selections which makes me admire your insight. Thank you so much @blanchy for this great opportunity. It has always been fun. Let's do this again 💪

YOU FOUGHT HARD......I ENJOYED THE COMPETITION 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥....We go again...

Will do Mr Leeds. You are on my list now. I will be chasing you for an entry.

Me too. Huge FPL fan here and I'm new around here. Would definitely love to join the next round

After Christmas which is like galaxy years away lol. How about 2nd round status for your mates excluding Arsenal fans of course as no riff raff allowed. Great contest and will sit on the sidelines waiting patiently.

😂 😂 It will take a few weeks to get numbers and by that stage there will be a break for world cup so best to do it after the world cup.

Congratulations to the winners, sorry @blanchy sorry Spurs lost to Arsenal I am sure they will come back strong.

Minor blip.
