 POOLS - EXPERT RESULTS PREDICTOR
                             'GEM' Version (3.xx)


This version is substantially different from all pre v3.00 releases, as it has
been entirely rewritten. For those  of  you  interested  it  is written in GFA
Basic with a few machine code routines added for speed.

 This version 3.02 is now available from LICENCED DISTRIBUTORS/PD LIBRARIES,
                    as well as direct from BAY COMPUTERS.

ANY PERSON OR ORGANISATION FOUND TO  BE  DISTRIBUTING OR COPYING THIS SOFTWARE
  WITHOUT A LICENCE WILL BE BREAKING THE LAW AND WILL BE PROSECUTED AS SUCH.

If you like this program and intend  to  keep it, then please register with me
as a user, as it will only cost  you  œ15.  You will then be supplied with the
latest version, a larger  results  database,  up-to-date  league tables, and a
printed manual. You will also be kept informed of any future upgrades.



                                 INTRODUCTION

Please note that I cannot offer  the  answer  of how to exactly pinpoint where
the score draws will appear on the  pools  coupon.  But, I can however help to
guide you in the right direction.

There is, and always will be, a luck  element  in where the draws will fall as
well as many other factors that must  be considered. For example, a goalkeeper
may have the flu, or the  centre  forward  may  be  out  with a broken leg, or
perhaps a certain team can't play in the rain!

If anybody or anything could  accurately  predict  all  the  draws then no one
person would get 1 million pounds, but  1  million people would probably get 1
pound!!!

After saying all that,  this  program  will  give  you  a  very good chance of
catching the draws, and hopefully will be very profitable for all users.



                              PREDICTION SYSTEM

There are currently three prediction methods built into the program:

METHOD 1: This was the first method I produced it will calculate a form figure
for the home team based on their  last  3  home results, and a form figure for
the away team based on their  last  3  away  results. The database of previous
results is the consulted to examine what the results were in the past for this
combination of forms, and will predict accordingly.

METHOD 2: This is  similar  to  method  1,  but  has  been enhanced to include
current league position and actual past scores (rather than results).

LUCK: An  entirely  random  selection,  using  the  computer's  random  number
generator. An electronic pin??



                                  MAIN MENU

The following options are all available from  the  main screen, but not all at
the same time, as certain  actions  will enable/disable other related options.
For example you must Load or Create a  fixture list before you can predict any
match results.

                                  QUICKSTART

If you are like me, you lik to get going immediately, and only read the manual
when you hit a snag, then  this  is  a  brief  summary  of the path you should
follow:-
                     1.  Boot-up 'POOLS.PRG'

2a.  Select 'Load Fixture List'      or      2b.  Select 'Create Fixture List'
                                             2c.  Edit & Save

                     3.  Select 'Predict Results'

It's really as easy as that!  Remember  to  enter the fixture results when you
know them, as this will increase tyhe  size of the past results database which
is examined for all predictions.

that I do not supply the seasons  fixture  lists on disk, although I have been
