Any posters on the island who play snooker at least occasionally are eligible to enter.
If you would like to participate in this inaugral event and have a chance of winning, please post a message below or send me a pm. Entries will close on September 11th.
Here are the competition rules:
1. The rules are not set in stone. If you would like to suggest changes, please do so before September 11th. My decision on whether to implement changes to the rules will be final.
2. The tournament will have a knockout format, with players drawn to play against each other at random in each round until we have a winner.
3. To play a match, you need to play some real snooker.
a) After your matchup is announced, you will have up to 2 weeks to play a total of 9 frames against a real opponent (or more than one).
b) Your real life opponent(s) (likely not someone in this competition of course) should play at a similar level to or higher level than yourself (if possible).
c) You should decide in advance of playing a frame whether or not it will count towards your SIWC match.
d) If you score fewer than 20 points in a frame (i.e. 1-19 points), that frame will not count as part of your SIWC match and you will need to play another frame.
e) In the 9 frames you play, keep a record of your 9 highest break scores. Only breaks that include at least one red potted count. One frame can have multiple breaks which count.
f) After you have completed your 9 frames, send me a PM with your 9 highest breaks from those frames.
4. The match score will be decided by a 'frame' being awarded for the 9 highest breaks out of the 18 scores sent to me by the two players.
Player A's break scores are as follows: 32, 22, 20, 20, 17, 15, 13, 13, 12
Player B's break scores are as follows: 48, 37, 22, 18, 18, 16, 12, 10, 8
The 9 highest breaks were B(48) B(37) A(32) A/B(22) A(20) A(20) B(18) B(18)
The match score is Player A 4-5 Player B. Player B wins!
5. After I have received the scores from both players in a particular match, I will announce the match result on the island.
6. Depending on how many people enter and how it goes, we may consider changing the number of frames and breaks per match after the first round.
If you like playing snooker but are rubbish at it (like me), please do not let that stop you from entering. This is just for fun, and a chance to share and talk about your own play in a more meaningful context.
There are no prizes. It's just for fun.
Honesty is required and expected by the participants. This is snooker!
