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.
would of been nice to see jimmy at the crucible again but wasn't to be losing 10-9 in the last 64 :(
Yeah, would be great to see him or Steve Davis qualify again before they hang up their cues for good... along with darts and golf it's one of the few sports where the over 50's can still compete on their day, and I think they're the only two still active from the "golden age" of the sport as far as I can remember. I suspect Ronnie will still make the Crucible with ease when he's 50 if he can be arsed to attempt to...

Could have taken Michael White as a proxy... snooker seems to produce a peculiar amount of unrelated namesakes. Numerous Davises, Alex/John Higgins, Kirk/Matthew Stevens etc...

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

I have a Carter and a Ding! I think they'll have been more popular than you say. Pricing forced a look further down the list and they both stuck out

Yep, got Carter as well - great value IMO.

Looks like we are all cancelling each other out by picking him. :roll:

As I said previously, the values were taken on current world ranking. He isn't the most popular choice though, that would be Ronnie.

I've got Ronnie, Ding and Carter. Am I dull and predictable?

PS A certain answer to the above question is even duller and more predictable.

First league table on the web-site.

I'll tidy it up in the next day or so, and also produce a FISO-only table for here.

Damn, thought I'd picked Carter but I tweaked him out at the last minute.....

Maybe I'm not as dull and predictable as I thought.

Right then, there are 25 FISO entries, so I will run a knockout cup as well. At the end of Round 1, the top 16 will qualify and play each other in the order :
1
16

8
9
-----------------------
5
12

4
13
-----------------------
3
14

6
11
-----------------------
7
10

2
15

... and hopefully we should get a winner in a couple of weeks time. In the unlikely event of a tie, the earliest to enter will progress (but you'll have to trust me for the times that emails arrived)

Posting my picks just to remind myself on who to shout abuse at!

Barry Hawkins 41
Ali Carter 25
Neil Robertson 48
Liang Wenbo 34
Shaun Murphy 49

Total 197

I thought I had Carter in P3, but 4 x 775 has me in third place :lol:

Updated the league table, since there are no more matches to play to a finish today. Thought I had Anthony McGill yesterday and was so chuffed, but it turns out I picked Alan McManus instead.

Not as late a finish as I thought it was going to be tonight.

League table updated, and the big news is that FISO occupy 6 of the top 9 places. FISO league table to follow tomorrow.

I'm in a respectable 36th despite only having 2 players play (suppose many have similar) and one of those was my last choice.

Most of my points from a 'routine' Ronnie win.

I need Ding to put one over Gould if my hare beats tortoise gamble is going to come off (and as many seeds as possible bar Ronnie, Allen and Robertson to struggle).

Holt wins 10-6 :( needed a Robertson win as well.

With Murphy on his way home too, that's me done and dusted.

Whoops. Was flying high, but that's me done. I'm always very keen to get this competition running, but I'm just a glutton for punishment. 9 years of running this, and I always seem to mess it up.

Never mind. There's always next year :oops:

Didn't realise you could re-order them, thought the five players you picked were automatically ranked in order of price. Would have put Ronnie ahead of Robertson in that case...

Another day, another league table, and another drop down the table. If I carry on at this rate for the next 12 days, I'll be relegated.

Phew. Trump and Ding scrape through. Would have been game over after losing Robertson. Can't see me winning but could finish up there with luck.
