    I think it's likely there'll be more than three ...

    Well I've upped to four, including a Spain/Portugal draw. Thanks for organizing.

    Edit - I've also done some spread betting where:
    Winner = 100
    RU = 75
    LSF = 50
    LQF = 25
    Last 16 = 10
    All others = 0

    So I:
    bought Brazil @ 49.5
    bought Australia @ 2

    sold England @ 25
    sold Korea @ 2
    sold Morocco @ 2

    43 entrants, most took Russia in the opening match.

    Did you also forget to tip? Or did you actually pick Saudi Arabia to get a result?

    Btw - you can tip more than the first round, for any who have not done so. In Round 2, or 3 etc, you just need to click on 'enter tips' up the top left of page.

    Wait...I thought we weren't picking score? I picked Russia but got 1 point, and it said I was off by 5 goals (as if they could win with 0 goals).
    How do you pick margin of victory?

    There was a margin of victory widget under the first game .. but it was only available for the one game - maybe one per round?

    It looks like you only pick the margin of victory for the Russian games. If you click to Round 2, it's there again.

    Interesting, no-one took Egypt, 34 picked Uruguay, 9 picked a draw.

    Guessing most folks didn’t expect Salah to play. I reckoned he’d be on the bench at best.

    I had originally picked Iran to win, then changed to Morocco right before the match kicked off.

    I had originally picked a draw for Spain-Portugal, then switched to Spain to win right before kickoff.

    I..... am not going to change my picks right before kickoff anymore.

    Thanks to those who forgot to make round 2 picks, I feel like I'm moving up the table. In reality...

    I love that I'm flying up the table thanks to non-pickers.

    Mid 30's morherfuckers!!!

    (Also remember there is nothing stopping you tipping the entire group stages right now)

    Hat tip to @Warning Track Speed for picking Croatia. I didn’t have the stones to pick a loss (I picked draw) but Argentina is a disaster.

    That's about all I've done right so far. I'm ahead of exactly two entries that have picked both rounds. Ugly. (Note: I've got Serbia in Round 3....)

    I think this Argentina-Nigeria game is a super hard pick. Argentina is such a mess and Nigeria looked good, but could the desperation of Argentina win out? ugh, glad I'm not gambling on it.

    We're running out of chances to catch BrazilianSoxFan. He's getting close to running away and hiding. There aren't enough chances to make up ground in the knockout rounds.
