Hello and Welcome to the 2015 BetVictor Welsh Open Prediction Contest!
I know this contest comes a bit late as the tournament starts on Monday, but I didn't exactly have in mind running it given I've ran very recently the Masters Prediction Contest and thought someone else would be interested in doing this.
Anyway, this tournament will run from Monday 16th to Sunday 22nd of February, at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, and all the players will be there, with defending champion Ronnie O'Sullivan trying to win a record 4th Welsh Open title.
The format of this contest is pretty simple, you just have to correctly predict the winners of the various matches as well as many correct scorelines as possible, as that very often decides who wins these contests. Also, bonus points will be awarded to those who correctly name up to 5 players who you think will do well in the event. More details on the points allocation follows.
Higher seeded player defeats a lower seeded player: 2 points
Lower seeded player defeats a higher seeded player: 4 points
Correct Scoreline: 3 points
Correct Scoreline for the Final: 6 points
Name 5 players who you think will advance the furthest:
Last 16: 2 points
Quarter-Finals: 3 points
Semi-Finals: 4 points
Final: 5 points
Winner: 6 points
Should entries be tied for the same score the person who predicts correctly the winner of the most matches will be placed higher on the list. Should this still not separate entries then the person with the most correct scorelines will be placed higher.
Templates will follow shortly, possibly today or tomorrow morning.
Good luck to all entrants!
