Welcome to the 2016 Masters prediction championship.
Kolompar is the defending champion.
Format for this won't be much different from previous championships. The points allocation is as follows.
Player beats someone from a lower seeding group: 5 points
Player beats someone from the same seeding group: 6 points
Player beats someone from a higher seeding group: 7 points
Correct scoreline bonus for every match (except the final): 4 points
Correct scoreline bonus for the final: 6 points
Points for picks that advance the furthest from each seeding group: 4 points per pick.
Should more than one player reach the furthest for a group, points will be allocated for ALL players.
If entrants are tied on the same amount of points at the end of the contest, precedence will be given in the following order until a winner is determined:
1. Correct match RESULTS.
2 Correct match SCORELINES.
3. Number of picks that went the furthest in the tournament.
Each match will have its own separate deadline so you may predict individually or all at once, it's up to you.

Group B: O'Sullivan, Trump, Higgins and Hawkins
Group C: Allen, Perry, Ding and Walden
