Once again, thank you to Betfair for a prize fund.

This is how it works:
There are 12 sections, you have to pick 1 player or number (depending on which section) for each one. The scores for each selection are listed below.
Just put the letters A to L with your choice for each - preferably going downwards, followed by a tie-break answer. The people with the highest scores at the end of the World Championship will win as follows: 1st - £120, 2nd - £80, 3rd - £60, 4th - £40. to be paid direct into your BF account (so you MUST have an active Betfair account to be able to take part and receive any prizes).
In the event of ties, the tiebreak will be operated, if there's still a tie, the prizes will be added and divided equally among those involved in the tie.

Other stuff
E&OE - If there's a player missing from any of the sections as I've listed them (I don't think I've missed anyone), he will be ignored for scoring purposes. Any ambiguous or unclear selections will be ignored, and will score zero points – regardless of intention.
Any ties in any sections, points shared; (eg, if the score is 2 points for 3rd, 1 point for 4th, and there's a tie for 3rd, both will score 1.5)
The organiser's (that's me) decision is final. I'll try to update scores and standings as the tournament progresses.
Entries accepted until 9.00am, Saturday 21st April.
Good Luck everybody and enjoy the Snooker.
