Welcome to the Forum Snooker competition, with prizes for the top 3 places, courtesy of Betfair.
Sorry there isn't much time to do this - Just until 10.00 Saturday, but the final draw has only just been announced.
Not that it’s just about the prize, there’s also the kudos attached to beating all those other know-alls on the forum!

I hope you enjoy it and it might help you enjoy the event a bit more.


This is how it works:

There are 12 sections.
You have to pick 1 name 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 tournament will win as follows: 1st - £50, 2nd - £30, 3rd - £20. To be given as BF Sportsbook bets.
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.

THE SECTIONS: and some details/clues


A. Close matches:
How many of the 16 1st round matches will be won 10-8 or 10-9
3 points for correct, 1 points if 1 out.

B. How many of these players will get knocked out in the SECOND ROUND only?
If they’re KO’d in the 1st round, it isn’t the 2nd round is it?
J. Burnett, S. Murphy, R. Walden, D. Dale, A. Carter, M. White, J. Trump, N. Robertson.
Choose from 0 – 8
3 points for the exact number, 1 for one out.

C. How many of these 8 (2 from each 1/4 of the draw) will make the 1/4 final?
J. Perry, M. Fu, B. Hawkins, M. Davis, M. Selby, J. Higgins, S. Maguire, M. Allen.
Choose from 0 – 8
3 points for correct, 1 point if 1 out.

D. How far will Stuart Bingham get in the tournament?
Choose from: R1, R2, QF, SF, Final or Winner, 3 points for spot on.

E. Who will win the 3rd Quarter of the draw?
M. Selby, M. White, A. Carter, X. Guodong, J. Higgins, A. McManus, S. Bingham, K. Doherty.
4 points for 1/4 winner, 2 points for whoever he beats in the 1/4 final.

F. Top NON - English player
Choose from: R. Hull, M. Fu, D. Junhui, X. Guodong, M. White, J. Higgins, A. McManus, D. Dale, K. Doherty, S. Maguire, R. Day, M. Allen, N. Robertson, J.Burnett.
5 points for player getting furthest in the championship, 3 points for 2nd best non Englishman, 1 point for 3rd best.

G. How many frames will be played in total in the 2 semi-finals?
Both best of 33, ie 1st to 17.
choose from 34 (if you're mad) to 66.
4 points if exact, 2 points if out by 1, 3 points if out by 3.

H. What will the tournament’s Highest Break be? (Any number up to 147)
2013 was 143, 2012 was 147, 2011 was 138.
3 points for correct, 1 point if 1 out.

I. Who will score the tournament’s Highest Break?
Ding and King both got the high break last year
5pts if choosing correctly. 3 pts each if 2 are tied, 2pts each if 3 tie, 1 pt for each if 4 or more tie.

J. How many century (score of 100 or more) breaks will there be throughout the championship?
-There were 55 in 2013, 71 in 2012, 73 in 2011, 83 in 2010,
6 points if spot on, 4 points if 1 out, 2 if 3 out, 1 point if 4 out.

K. Predict the Score in the final – doesn’t matter who wins.
2013 was 18 -12, 2012 was 18 –11, 2011 was 18 - 15, 2010 was 18 - 13, 2009 was 18 - 9
Choose from 18-0 to 18-17
5 points if right, 3 points if wrong by 1, 1 point if 2 away.

L. How Many Century (100 or more) breaks will there be in the Final?
There were 4 in 2011, there was 1 in 2010, 3 in 2009.
2 points for being right

Tiebreak: How many minutes will the final frame of the tournament last?

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 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 at the end of each day's play, or whenever there is updating to do.

I don't understand the scoring for Question G, but here's my guess anyway. If I get more than 2 or 3 right that will count as success.
