mathematically there is still a slight chance that someone other than moremilk could win
but considering that he can make the same picks as his nearest competitor and keep the lead through the finals, the math doesn't really come into play
even if we made the picks via pm's to keep them blind, it is very unlikely that there would be enough opposing selections to make a difference, and in any case that would be changing the rules in midstream.
the idea was to keep front-running out of play by making it about the first to reach 500. Had I properly set the parameters with double the points available, then moremilk would have reached 500 with his current set of picks - undoubtedly he did more than just front run - he has been the hottest hand throughout - fighting off more than one legitimate challenger
so with all that in mind, I think we should let moremilk pour the milk over his head like they do in the Indy. Congrats moremilk!
here are the final standings
