Think Pink 2021/22

Postby Pink Ball

Hello ladies and gentlemen.

Our second Think Pink season has come to an end. McManusfan has succeeded our inaugural champion, Rekoons, who in turn went from the top of the table to the bottom in 2021, picking up the dreaded Pink Dildo from 2020 recipient Wildey. Kurt Maflin won the Pink Gift Certificate in 2020 as Player of the Year, but in 2021 he relinquished his crown to Jordan Brown.

But that was 2021. Now the search is on for our 2022 prize winners. Yes, Think Pink 2021/22 will open for business soon.

The rules for 2021/22 are unchanged from the 2020/21 season:

1. All 96 tour players will be split into 16 groups of six according to the rankings at the conclusion of the 2021 World Championship. Group one will contain players ranked one to six; group two will contain players ranked seven to 12; group three will contain players ranked 13 to 18, and so on and so forth until group 16, which will contain players ranked 91 to 96.
2. Each entrant picks one player in each group as a team member.
3. You must then select a 17th player as a wildcard. This can be any snooker player who is not ranked inside the world's top 96.
4. Every ranking tournament counts towards the scoring, except for the Shootout. Invitational events do not count.
5. The scoring criteria is the same as last year. If your Group One player makes it to a quarter final, they score you one point; two for a semi-final; three for a final; and four for winning a ranking tournament. If your Group Two player makes it to a quarter final, they score you two points; four for a semi-final; six for a final; and eight for winning a ranking tournament. For group three players it goes 3, 6, 9, 12; group four goes 4, 8, 12, 16, and so on and so forth until group 16 players, which goes 16, 32, 48, 64. A wildcard player, meanwhile, scores 25, 50, 75, 100 for the above.
6. The World Championship carries triple points on the above.
7. Any tournament whose final is shorter than best of 17 will be worth half points on what’s stated in rule five.
8. The first tie-break criteria is to check which of the tied entrants has the highest-scoring team member. If still tied, we check the second-highest-scoring team member, then third, and so on and so forth.
If the tie-break hasn't been broken after checking each team member, then it's a dead-heat between the players, unless both players have picked exactly the same team. In that case, whoever entered their team first wins.
9. We will be open to entries once the World Championship final is over, and entries will be accepted until 23:59:59 on May 26, the eve of Q School.
10. All you have to do to enter is fill out the template below once the deadline is open and the players included in each group have been posted.
11. Once you have entered, you cannot change your team. I will ask Wildey to move this thread to the predictions section as soon as entries are open in order to prevent post editing.
12. Once I have confirmed your team is eligible, then you are signed up to battle for the 2022 Coland Rox Memorial Trophy.
13. Any participants who moderators confirm have entered twice using more than one Snooker Island ID will be disqualified.

This is the roll of honour:
2020: Rekoons
2021: McManusfan

This is the template:

That’s rather draconian :shock:

What’s wrong with a good old-fashioned birching? :chin:

Pinky there’s a problem with Group Six which may prevent me entering :parrot:

Michael Holt, Ricky Walden, Gary Wilson, Scott Donaldson, Lu Ning, Matthew Stevens

May I have the other one as my wildcard?

I'd opt for Ricky Walden. Everytime I see him play I'm always like it's Darryl Braxton from Home and Away :D

These landmines have always been there. In the first edition, two people picked Jamie Jones even though he was effectively banned. Alfie Burden was there last year. They're in the top 96 at the time the World Championship ends, so they go in.

Judd Trump carried my team to narrowly avoid relegation, with some new signings there is strong belief the team can improve and maybe challenge for the top 6!
