2017 DAFABET MASTERS PREDICTION CONTEST

Postby Cloud Strife

Welcome to the 2017 Dafabet Masters prediction championship.

Andre147 is the defending champion.

Format for this won't be much different from previous championships, except there will be a 147 bonus up for grabs this time around. The points allocation is as follows.


Rules and Scoring

Correct Result
Every match (except the final): 5 points
The Final: 7

Correct Scoreline bonus
For every match (except the final): 4 points
The Final: 6 points

Pick two players to win the tournament:
You will receive 12 points if they win the tournament and 6 points if they are runners-up.

Maximum Bonus (Optional)
Pick a player to make a maximum break (147 with 15 blacks and reds or 155 with 16 blacks and reds) and you will receive a 15 point bonus. Pick as many players as you like and you will receive 15 points for each one that makes a maximum. However you will lose 10 points for each pick that fails to make maximum. If your pick makes more than one maximum break you receive 15 points for each maximum made.

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.

Further rules
- Once a prediction has been submitted you may not change them.
- An updated table will be provided at the end of each days play.

Each match will have its own separate deadline so you may predict individually or all at once, it's up to you.

Good luck to all entrants!

The 10th Masters and the seventh anniversary of the first contest held on Snooker Island. If Andre defends this he moves onto double figures for contest wins.

Can this thread be moved to the Predictions Folder Please?

If someone does get round to moving this can they move the parallel predictions league across to it as well (as request last year). Thanks. (All entries to this will automatically be entered to that, so if you want to make the most of it go and pick 5 players in it)

O'Sullivan 6 v 4 Lliang Wenbo
Wilson 2-6 Ding
Higgins 6-5 Allen
Bingham 6-3 Perry
Trump 3-6 Fu
Roberston 6-3 Carter

I'm fairly sure that there aren't any restrictions on who can create and post new threads into the predictions sub-forum (with posts in there, not able to be edited). If there are, then I don't mind creating the thread in a prediction forum for you to run.

For some reason I get "You cannot post a new topic in this forum" message when I try and start a thread in the predictions forum; assumed only mods could start threads in there; which is why I was asking for my thread (and this one, as presumably Cloud's had the same issue) to be moved. Even if you just create an opening post as you've suggested for me to run it in that would be great :)

We can edit our picks. :D


We certainly could, not now. I wouldn't do it regardless, and a good contest runner (like me) should post all predictions on a separate page in his computer.
