Doin' the math

Ok, I picked 1. Kyle 2. Jimmie 3. Joey for the Kentucky race

Wouldn't that add up to 30 points for 1st correct, 10 points for Jimmie (out of order) and 1 for playing? But I only got 31 points. Is it my math? I hope not, I have payrolls to run this week.

Maybe I'm :? :?

Nope, you got scored correctly. It's one or the other, whichever is greater, not both. According to the official rules:

"You can only fall into one of 2 categories:
Category A: picks in correct order
Category B: picks in incorrect order

The system will first check to see if you fall into "Category A" by seeing how many you have in the correct order. It then checks to see if you fall into "Category B" (how many you have in the incorrect order). If you fall into both categories, it will award you the one with more points."

Ok, sorry, I get it now. I sure could have used an extra 10 points though. Thanks for clearing that up!
