HiveBuzz World Cup Contest - Round of 16 - Recap of Day 3

in Word Cup 2023last year (edited)

Here are the results of the third day of the knockout phase

Today we have not copied yesterday's text because, although it seems that the end of the surprises is confirmed, as was the case for the match Brazil vs Korea, it has not been the same for the one between Japan and Croatia.

What a magnificent match, with the first session of additional times and scoring goals in the World Cup. Once again, it's a safe bet that many had good scares, and not just on the field.

It is therefore Croatia and Brazil who are qualified for the quarter-finals.


We now have 530 registered participants who will share the 7051 HIVE from the prize pool.

Contest distribution and ranking

We are progressing in this World Cup and the ranking is slowly becoming clearer among the participants.

Here is a breakdown by the number of badges:


Here are the top 25 players. Remember that the sooner you make your bets, the higher you will find yourself in the ranking compared to other players who have the same score as you.

Not many changes in the top 3. It's always the same ones who dominate the race. On the other hand, they are only 4 left with a one-badge gap. There seems to have been some skimming on that day.

See you tomorrow.

If you are not listed above, you can check the Ranking Page to find out how far you are from the top.

Small typo. Fixed. Thank you for notifying ;)

what was i thinking korea winning from brazil lol but im still in the race
good job for the winners

good luck for all players 😆

I wanted to make a mistake in the croatia vs japan match. The Japanese really are a tremendous team. Very good championship for them.

I took a risk to choose Japan win.
It's a pity that it didn't come true, even it's very close

Life's spicier when you take risks...even if it rewards with fewer badges 😂

many people took a risky move betting on the japs. It almost worked


Good luck everyone
