It's easy… if your selection wins the game, you earn challenge points! We total your points at the end of all tournament games and the entry with the most challenge points is the winner.
Participants earn challenge points for correctly picking winning teams in each round of the bracket (NOT including the play-in games) as follows:
- 1st Round: 1 point for each correct selection
- 2nd Round: 2 points for each correct selection
- 3rd Round: 4 points for each correct selection
- 4th Round: 6 points for each correct selection
- 5th Round: 8 points for each correct selection
- 6th Round: 10 points for each correct selection
Example: North Carolina beats Arkansas in round 2. You picked North Carolina, you get 2 challenge points. Kentucky beats Wisconsin in round 5. You picked Kentucky, you receive 8 challenge points for this game.
Special Bonus Report: At the end of the game, H2H will post in Game News a report with the top 100 participants and their number of correct selections.
Keep in mind that your team selections are final once the contest trade and registration deadline has passed. This is a pick once bracket game so your selections are permanent throughout the entire contest.
