A pity for excitement purposes that Lao Lao or Richie hadn't changed to Ronnie.

Damn that was going to be my change - completely jinxed myself and Selby. The power of the bbv extends to other threads it seems.

Belgium off to a winning start in the hockey for you. Aussies play Ireland this evening in their first game.

Gives Mdoug a shot at splitting for first and strewel a chance at second I think?

mdoug can't get first.

He has 2 selections the same as me, and Palace aren't finishing bottom with Cardiff outside of the bottom 2. Plus he needs Ronnie to bink too.

Lao Lao still in with a chance though. If Argies bink the hockey (and Aussies don't finish 2nd), and Cardiff don't finish bottom 2, then he wins.

More than likely Cardiff finish 2nd bottom, and we split it.

If Cardiff finish bottom, i win regardless.

He really needed to change the snooker to have another 2 point freeroll.

These are my predictions though

Flushdraw (3)26
Mdoug (2)23
Lao Lao (2)22
RichieM (2)21.25
Strewelpeter (3)21
5starpool (2)20
Pokerhand (1)18
Dimoxinil15.5
AJ (2)13.25

Cardiff wins tonight. Does that change picture much? Palace more likely finish bottom two, but who the fuck knows, have no idea now... But gut call palace and Fulham at this stage.

None of this is going to matter, Southampton are going to be last as Mark Hughes is super shite.

I think Newcastle are going to drop to the bottom, they look terrible.

The hockey is a great event for the whole thing to hinge on as I know nothing about it at all and in terms of selections itís is about the biggest spread.

Australia and Belgium are on opposite sides on the draw if both win I think which is not ideal but was the only real choice I had to roll the dice with.

Yep. Know nothing about it myself, but fun to have an interest in an event which i would not have otherwise!

Best part of the comp for me was doubtless the obscure events alright.
Following a volleyball group match on flashscore or checking the Aussie Rules playoff results when I woke up at the weekend; events that would have barely registered with me otherwise.

KenDoc 3-1 up on Ronnie at the interval, he couldn't could he?

I watched the end of the final at about 2am on some obscure Polish channel

Come on Ken. Roll back the years!!

Result 37/40.
Athletics - Fastest 100M of year.

With only marathons on the schedule for the rest of the year this seems over so might as well close now so everyone knows where they are for the remaining events. Will reserve the right to come back to it if a failed drug test comes to light or something.

1st. Christian Coleman. 2 points. Lao Lao, mdoug, Flushdraw, 5starpool, RichieM, dimoxinil.
2nd. Ronnie Barker. 1 point. No-one.

This event didn't really provide the all year action and December changes that I hoped, so with the World Championship on next year I'll probably just pick an open looking event in that for the competition and have it done and dusted on the day.

Completed Events.

Remaining Events.

Snooker and Hockey on-going.
Australia and Argentina already into the quarter finals and on opposite sides of the draw.

Group C is interesting.

India and Belgium both on 4pts from 2 games, but India have +4 GD, so a small buffer.

India are 1/5 to win v Canada, and Belgium 1/20 to beat SA

The group winners go into the same SF side as Australia, while the runners-up have a playoff against Pakistan most likely, and then go into the Argentina SF side.

I'll be cheering on India, and hope that Belgium can beat Argentina in the SF. If the Aussies also make it, then i should have it wrapped up, and even if they don't, i have a decent final sweat!

I think that's my best case realistic scenario!

2019 initial list.

39 events so far so open to more.
Have dropped Basketball and All Ireland football (GSW and Dublin too dominant) but open to alternative ways these sports could be brought in.
F1 a possibility (Hamilton same issue?) or some other motor sport event if anyone has ideas. A fighting event of some sort maybe but I'm not sure how.
All ideas welcome except mdoug's idea of a second wrestling event. Maybe I've missed an obvious one.

Would be worried about Leinster and New Zealand being auto selections in rugby, hopefully Leinster lose this weekend .
Handball makes its debut, a bad oversight this year.
Its still quite summer-centric but not sure that's avoidable.

Spoiler


Scoring is basically the same as this year, except doubling it allows me to pay semi-finalists (or 3rd place playoffs if they exist) in large field events to reduce blanks.

Not that I am remotely interested in or, but the likes of the Aga Khan showjumping thing in the RDS is usually open enough isn't it? Should that be considered for entry? Also, the world championship darts, I assume it is the PDC 2020 event?
