Does PPS + first timer really have significant advantage?
I think PPS should have referencing from the people around me.

The lower the ratio, the higher the chance. Therefore, needless to say, the first one.

Well, luck still plays a part though...

2nd timer is in another group iirc.
1st timer compete with first timer group only for the allocated ratio of flats.

In other words, pointless to worry about 2nd timer unless you are 2nd timer.
2nd timer would get the behind queue number.

True but then SBF flats only a few are choice units and good locations so actually the ratio is distorted.

I would say if there are 100 units in an area and only 10 are good locations, even if the ratio is low, say 200 bidding for 100 units, it's actually closer to 200 bidding for 10 units...

my understanding.

I am not too sure if this is correct.
2nd timer is only limited by the units available , not the queue.

Said 100 unit avaialble
95 reserved for 1st timer
5 reserved for 2nd timer .

When ballote , all come in as their holding chances ( 1,2,4 )

If some 2nd timer with god damn good luck , will get #1 even if he hold only 1 chance.
All the 2nd timer that manage to get the queue number will be informed once there are 5 unit taken by 2nd timer queue before them.

Thats my understanding.

Oh?
like that means 2nd timer can even be in front of 1st timer.

Yes.. 2nd timers are allocated fewer units but when they ballot for queue number, it will be mixed with the 1st timers.. so if they’re lucky, they might get a good queue number..

That explain in some of the mature area , 2nd timer go in to try their luck.

I.e. clementi 3 room flat are offered just beside mrt.
First timer x 14
Second timer x 21.

Golden location
No harm to try via $10
The $10 bet may win you 100k gain in 5 years time.
