  1. Spoiler

    Assuming "X beat Y and Z" allows X to beat Y but lose to Z.

    Ed, Jim, Bill, Tom

    Ed:
    Bill wasn't last.

    I was the winner.
    Jim finally broke 100.
    I shot 98.

    Jim:
    I beat Bill 
    and Ed.
    The last hole was not my best.

    We didn't all break 100.
    Tom wasn't the winner.

    Bill:
    I beat Jim and Tom.
    Ed shot 111.
    Jim took 6 on the last hole.
    None of us broke 100.

    Tom:
    Ed beat Bill.
    I was the winner.
    Bill placed between Ed and Jim.

    The last hole was Jim's best.

    With the previous assumption about the meaning of between.

    Initials occurring in odd positions of the alphabet must have held even positions in the circle. 

    That doesn't give any information about the team. The order could be Taylor, Miller,  Brown, Gerson Jenkins, Adams, Babcock, Carver, Randolph, Smith, Flynn, Sawyer, Timmons, Myers, Lucas, Morton, Peters, Young. The first 9 could be Cons and they still wouldn't call their initials. 


  4. Well, there's an even number of players and an even number of letters. Once you've hit the 13th round, they start repeating letters. So if they alternate, all the Cons will have even letter (B, D, F, etc) initials and call odd letters. Prose have odd letter (A, C, E, ...) initials and call even.


  5. Does the circle alternate between teams? If so...

     

    Cons: Taylor, Brown, Jenkins, Babcock, Randolph, Flynn, Timmons, Lucas, Peters


    Prose: Miller, Gerson, Adams, Carver, Smith, Sawyer, Myers, Morton, Young

    Revised answer:

      Hide contents

    7/24 without equilateral

    3/8 with equilateral

    Both excluding impossible triangles. 

    Well, I seem to have done some weird math when adding equilateral. New result including equilateral:

    23/72

    I think rocdocmac and I agree on the figure including equilateral now but we seem to have diverged on the other figure...
