Here are the full calculations for R6 loss v Collingwood.

Since it is a long week I had a look at investment trends, see graph below …

Trends%20to%20R6

The columns in the chart show the number of each investment option taken each round. The lines show:

  • the number of different players selected,
  • the number of dead lock options each round.

As the game progresses the different number of players and the spread of lock options has increased. This might indicate that I am getting the rates right across the board and so Gamers can choose a number of valid strategies. Alternatively it might indicate that Gamers have no idea and are only selecting players at random, so the distribution is becoming more even.


#232

Are my stress players still on for this week games or do I have to select again?


#233

Bingo!


#234

Your stress lock option paid out R6, so you can change investment for R7


#235

Ok cool. I will go the same again 50% stress on tippa
50% stress on saad


#236

It doesn’t look like we will get an injury report, so here are Nervous and Bonus rates for R7 v Geelong.

R7%20Bonus%20Payments

Although the game is not until Sunday, remember that investment decisions close when the Club makes announcements of who is in the extended squad, which is expected Thursday evening.

I can’t give advice, however @Scintilla , @Celtic_Swing and @Koala could use this week to ponder whether a 100% stress or anxiety investment on one player is the optimum way to use those options.


#237

OK the Game is open for investment decisions now. Please confirm this is what you want to do.


#238

Yep, I want to go with it. Thanks mate


#239

What KFC is not saying, but is trying to say, is that you can stress or anxiety the same player twice. Or, you might choose 2 different players and spread your risk.

So 2 x 50% investment on the same player (or two players) gives you access to 2 x bonus payments.

A 1 x 100% investment on the one player gives you access to 1 x bonus payment.

This advice only affects stress or anxiety options as trauma requires a 100% investment anyway, and nervous does not have that type of bonus payment attached.

I need all the help I can get!
But just so I’m clear, because I took Zaha 100% stress until round 8, I can’t make any changes anyhow this week, right?
