My understanding is we need to predict the 2 English Open finalists now.
And predict the scores of 30 matches in total, across the English Open. Each score prediction should go in before that particular match is played.

Is that correct?

Spot on. 30 picks to be used across the entire English Open event.

This time there is no rule on having to predict on the later stages. The 30 picks can be used on any of the matches

I've made 6 picks in this first round. But if I want I can "skip" the 2nd round entirely correct? As long as I have 30 by the end of the week right? Cheers

Correct, the 30 picks can come from any of the matches you want though bonuses for correct scorelines increase as the matches get longer. - You don't have to use all 30 if you don't want to (in the event of a player being tied on points, scorelines and predictions, the player who used fewer picks would come higher). Only thing I will say is that the picks don't roll over to the next event, e.g. if I only made 20 picks here, I wouldn't have 40 for the Northern Ireland event.

This is the table up to the conclusion of the Akani vs. Maguire match. The remaining matches this evening will be included in the update from tomorrow night.

If any match doesn't go ahead for any reason then it will be considered a void pick and anyone who has used it in the predictions will be entitled to predict another match.
