2016 Fantasy World Snooker - Now running

Postby Shaggy365 » 06 Apr 2016, 18:53

... is coming to a web-site near you soon. The first qualifying rounds kicked off today & are scheduled to finish on Wednesday 13th April. The tournament proper kicks off in Sheffield on Saturday 16th April, so once again I will have only 2 days to work out player values, set up a web-site and get as many entries as I can.

Watch this space [ ]

Well, the final qualifiers have taken place, and the web-site is up & running. I believe the draw takes place Thursday morning at 10:00.

Usual FISO rules apply. All entries to be received before it starts on Saturday morning. Entry by email or pm. Don't overspend, and good luck everyone.

Oh yes, the website is http://pwhitehead.webs.com/snooker.htm

I have increasingly poor form, etc etc

Edit: just realised I'm on holiday for the first week.
Looking forward to explaining to Mrs D why I'm looking at snooker betting sites by the poolside.

Entries trickling in. I may have to think of a different way of doing this if I'm going to continue to only get 2 days to gather as many entries as possible.

Just PM'd my picks.

Is it just me, or are the points a bit more generous this year?

That may be so, but everyone has the same choice of players. The rankings were taken from the current world rankings (as good a place as any), and last year there weren't many people picked Mr Bingham to win it.

The draw has a sense of humour, producing Gilbert-O'Sullivan...

You do realise that Jimmy was knocked out very early on in the qualifiers.

Anyway, at the current rate of entries, should just about clear 100 before it kicks off tomorrow morning.

One other thing I have to report is that so far this year, every FISO member has managed to put in a valid entry. Or put another way, they can count to 5 and add some numbers up on a calculator.

Put in Jimmy & 5 randoms (as Jimmy was free and gets no points I assume that will be ok...)

I'll be interested to see the number of Carters (and Dings) when Shaggy posts the line-ups. I'm going for >50% ownership of each.

Like last year I've tried to be clever with my ordering. And like last year will probably fall flat on my face.
