Monday Sports Talk Social Quiz #3 - Win 50k SPORTS + 500k SPORTS delegation
It's that time of the week again! Forget those Monday blues, step away from Twitter and its endless click bait on transfer deadline day and come take part in the Sports Talk Social Quiz.
Last week's contest saw some familiar faces alongside some newcomers all vying for the crown of sharpest sporting mind on the Hive blockchain. One question in particular stumped absolutely everybody but kudos to those who kept trying and we did eventually get the right answer even if it wasn't quite for the correct reason.
Actually question 5 last week gave me the idea that for some of the tougher questions in the future, I may choose to give clues at set times so for example after 1 day, 3 days, 5 days, etc. and introduce a bigger prize for those who can get it earlier. Hopefully that keeps everyone engaged and guessing the answer and helps me measure the difficulty of the question. I don't want the questions so easy that it's all over in 5 minutes but I don't want them so hard that no one can get them or even worse you all just stop trying!

In fact, no one got the last picture right which perhaps isn't surprising given that the goalkeeper and the defenders are looking in completely the wrong direction. I was so happy when after trawling through a fair few match highlights I found that one!

- Tiger Woods vs Sergio Garcia - @adhammer
- Evander Holyfield vs. Riddick Bowe @ablaze
10K SPORTS and a point each for the above
