I tried it - it's neat, great system. After the various eliminations, I ended up with Ralf Souquet as the winner.

Best of luck in the competition!

I ended up picking Ralph myself. Pretty neat system. Now that is what should have been done on that 9 ball fantsy drawing.

I see that three guys have either predicted Ralph to either win it or at least make the final. Ralph's a great choice as he's allways a threat to win. Having said that he's got a pretty tough draw to accomplish your predictions.

Afters facing Chamat in the first round, he could face someone like Morris in the 2nd round, followed by either Reyes, Bustamante or Yang in the third round,followed by the likes of Archer or Immonen in the 4th,and could meet the likes of Strickland, Pagulayan, Fong Pang Chao, or defending champion Hohmann in the final.

In my opinion the group of 16 that Ralphs in is the toughest(includes Reyes, Bustamante, Morris and Yang) group in the tourney.But then again, with the players entered, who isn't going to have a tough go.Some of the oriental players could be tough on their soil, with their crowd. It should be interesting. RJ

Well I am in 3rd place right now, with the finals to come. Things are looking good though, seing I picked Alex to win it all. /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif If he wins I finish first.

Anyone know what you win???? If anything.

A free one night stay in Rantoul Kansas! LOL I don't know what you win but you have a good seat. I'm hung out to dry finishing 25th. Now if Alex has it together your in good shape. I hope Alex wins, I didn't pick him to win but had him into the 1/4 or semi finals as I recall.

Wow, this whole time I thought I was way off - and I'm tied for 10th!

It sure would help knowing the asian players better. Hopefully these matches will be available on video or television soon.

Great job, congrats!

The good news is that if Alex winds, you have just won their web site! The bad news is they haven't paid the hosting fees for several years and the collection agency would like your phone number.

Well no luxurious suite in Kansas for you! Good job Chris you picked well.

WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO Alex, what a comeback. Now, what did I win, huh, huh, huh. Hell who cares, Canada has a world champion.
