                  The Derby @ Epsom next Saturday. Still ~47 hours to change deadline on that, so I'll say nothing.
                  French Open tennis starts tomorrow, Halep a non-runner for Nuck but everyone else has a starter after 6 change chips used. Draw details linked on the second row above.
                  I notice the two most popular picks Tipp and Cavan were both eliminated from the GAA today. A struggle to get points this year, I blame the players/teams, not ourselves.

                        Yeah too late unfortunately luckforsome, have to be strict on times as it can be important with differential picks come November.
                        Pity though as it would have been good to have someone else on a horse other than Hi Def. pokerhand has at least kept it somewhat relevant anyway.

                            No idea how to multi-quote anymore, but from post #61.
                            Late May/early June change deadlines.

                            Tennis. French Open. Deadline 25/05.
                            Horses. Epsom Derby. Deadline 31/05.

                            Golf. US Open. Deadline 12/06.

                            Deadline for that has passed unfortunately. Pity, as would have liked a wider spread of picks on that event. But no can do.

                                    Tennis. Wimbledon. Deadline 23/06.

                                    All deadline times 21:59.

                                    Quite a lot this month, all your current picks can be seen on the spreadsheet on the Leaderboard Tab.

                                    Everyone currently on Limerick in the Munster hurling - if no-one changes I'll scrap it rather than awarding identical points.
                                    Would just mean I'll be adding 13 extra events instead of 12 at start of July to bring us up to 40.

                                      2nd Fav High Definition is a non-runner in the Derby.
                                      Bolshoi Ballet for pokerhand is the only selection left.

                                        Hee hee, Knew he would be a major doubt after missing the trail earlier. Which is why I tried to disguise my change pick.

                                        Nice to have a free roll on the field

                                        Am surprised there weren't more changes.

                                            French Open Tennis next up, with the final scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
                                            Simona Halep was a non-runner with a vet certificate, Naomi Osaki refused at the second fence, and Ashleigh Barty was pulled up injured at the same obstacle.
                                            Which leaves Iga Swiatek (6 picks) as the our only runner still standing as they head out on the second lap.

                                              Popular pick Swiatek beaten in the quarter finals Wednesday lunchtime, at which time the site went down in sympathy.
                                              No points for anyone with the 4 semi-finalists being unpickable outsiders. 6 chips wasted the only thing of note.

                                              There are definitely points on the way - in the ice-hockey Tampa (6 picks) and Montreal (Strewelpeter) are already in the semi-finals and guaranteed a point, and will be joined there by one of Colorado (Lao Lao) or Vegas (ArmaniJeans, luckforsome).
                                              But the next to finish will be GAA NFL - semi-final on Saturday and final next weekend. Derry (mdoug, RichieM) the only selection left.
                                              And the US Open golf next weekend as well, 5-3-2-1-1 points available.

                                                Curious decision by the GAA not to bother with finals. Other sports see them as a routine thing to play after two semi-finals.
                                                It doesn't look as if they are going to change their mind, so only fair thing I see is to split the 4-2 points.
                                                If they change their mind in a month and play the final, then I guess I'll go with it if it's 'official'.

                                                Joint 1st. Offaly & Derry. 3 points - mdoug, RichieM.

                                                        Been brought to my attention that a few days after this post there was a change of plan.
                                                        Derry and Offaly both decided to play the final....

                                                        So 1 extra point on the way for mdoug & RichieM, will add it later in week.

                                                                          Top 4 in each group will qualify for 1/4 finals scheduled for the end of August, with semi-finals and final all on the one day in mid -September.
                                                                          In the North Group, Notts (4 picks) are guaranteed a top 4 slot, whilst Lancashire (Degag) probably have to win their final 3 group games to qualify.
                                                                          In the South Group, Hampshire (Strewelpeter) look certain to miss out, whilst Somerset, Sussex and Surrey are all in the mix (probably a max of two of them can make it though).
                                                                          Notts are 5/1 favs for the outright.

                                                                          Dodgers (7 picks), Padres (AJ) and Chicago Whitesox (SP) all going fine and in contention for play-offs.
                                                                          Yankees (4) are a bit off the pace but still plenty of time to recover.
                                                                          The World Series itself will conclude in early November.
                                                                          Dodgers are 4/1 favs.

                                                                          Geelong (5) and Port Adelaide (mdoug) going fine.
                                                                          Unpicked Brisbane & Western Bulldogs are 4/1 JFs for overall glory in Octobers grand final, with Geelong 9/2. Richmond have drifted all the way to 10/1.


                                                                          Rugby League

St Helens (9 picks) still looking good but the form of Wigan (4 picks) has tailed off recently. Should still make the playoffs, albeit likely to face away games and no bye-weeks.
                                                                          St Helens 2/1 favourites for the October final. Wigan at 4/1 still considered a strong contender.

                                                                                Top try scorer in the 6N didn't really work out as no-one ever looked liked getting points.
                                                                                So I've simplified this event to just picking from the Lions squad for the 3 match series.
                                                                                (Covid could be an issue, so at least two test matches must be completed for a valid result)

                                                                                Always ultra competitive with the 3 relegated from the EPL and the 3 who missed out in last seasons play-offs doubtless expecting to be there or thereabouts. But also a whole host of fallen giants who think they should be in the EPL.

                                                                                More of the same or time for a new winner?

                                                                                Horse – King George Chase

                                                                                Golf - Ryder Cup Top Individual Points Scorer

                                                                                2018 renewal saw Molinari, Fleetwood and Thomas take the places, though not sure how relevant this is.
