Too late to change teams I’m afraid as the tournament’s underway.

My fault, I’ve had some rubbish going on and haven’t been thinking about this.


I thought my initial selection was only for The British Open?
This only got bumped up now as well, I completely forgot about it as did everyone else.

The idea is to swap your team before the tournament gets underway, excluding qualifiers (otherwise you could gain an advantage).

Having said that, this is still the qualifying round for the top 16 isn’t it? These tournaments are a bit screwy with the top 16 matches being held over.

Okay, in that case:

Please confirm your Revolving Cues team in preparation for the tournament finals starting on Monday.

You are more than welcome to wait until the end of play on Sunday. Not all qualifiers will be completed by then, however as Round 1 begins at 10am on Monday morning it’s imperative that you make any swaps prior to then.

If you don’t make any swaps, your duo will be the same as the one that you finished the British Open with.

Remember, you can swap one or both of your players if you want to, but you are under no obligation to swap either of them.

No wildcards remaining, and only one of tomorrow’s semi-finals will yield any points. We’re guaranteed a scorer, but it’s impossible for anyone to score both a finalist and a winner.

No wildcards can be cashed in with Dave Gilbert falling at the QF stage.

Andre, Raziel, Holden, McManusfan and Juddernaut have blown this competition wide open with all of them guaranteed at least a point.

Re: Revolving Cues

Postby Iranu

Disappointment for Andre, Raziel, Holden, McManusfan, and Juddernaut as John Higgins narrowly loses out in a wonderful final.

But they nonetheless bag themselves 1 point each for successfully selecting one of the Northern Ireland Open finalists, which leaves the scoreboard looking like this:

Leaderboard:
1. SnookerEd - 3 points
=2. Andre, Raziel, Holden, McManusfan, Juddernaut - 1 point

SnookerEd remains top of the table but has his lead cut to two points, which in this contest could make all the difference.



The next eligible tournament will be:

The English Open 1-7 November

All swaps are now reset to zero. You can swap your players if you want to any time between now and 10am Monday 3rd November*.

Do bear in mind that the German and European Masters qualifying rounds take please between now and the English Open so this may affect your decision.

*This is assuming the Last 32 starts on the Monday as it did in the NI Open

Re: Revolving Cues

This is the prediction tournament that matters <ok>

Re: Revolving Cues

Postby Iranu

The English Open begins on Monday with a different schedule than the Northern Ireland Open (which I’m sure is specifically to make things more difficult for me) so ignore the info in my previous post.

All of the top 16 qualifying matches will be completed on Monday 1st November. There will also be two first round matches taking place on Monday, but I don’t want the deadline to be Monday with 1/4 qualifying matches still to take place.

The easiest thing, then, is to make the deadline for team selection 10am Tuesday 2nd November. If you wish to make any changes please do so before then.

You’re under no obligation to make any changes - if you choose not to your team will be the same as it was for the NI Open.

Anyone who hasn’t joined the competition is welcome to do so. You can see from the leaderboard that the two completed tournaments haven’t given much of a headstart. You won’t be able to choose a wildcard, though.
