That would be great, anywhere to get a side bet or part of the action.. on you winning of course!!

Wouldn’t really feel comfortable taking money off you mate as we’ve never met, but if you come to the potential meet up, I’ll show you my Shaun Murphy like curing action and you can lump on all you want

I had a look at tennis, and may do again, but firstly there was no big tournament on, except for a clay event (Monte Carlo masters), and if Nadal enters, he will win.  OR can you think of some fun way of having a bet on it, that will include Nadal, like number of games lost in the Tournament instead?? Thanks @cant_moaning

I had to look it up in the end, looks like an early form of ice hockey, but I'd rather watch your version especially if it was a boar with horns...... where's the number for Sky Sports?? 😁

I believe Dillian Whyte might be fighting instead of AJ on that date or the 20th April so he might be someone to put in- also amir khans fighting 20th April vs Crawford

Boxing is deffo gonna be one of the 10 events. Amirs fight will be one of them, and if there is another big fight on in April I can do the event as a double header, like you say possibly with Dillian Whyte?? will have to see if and when that is confirmed. Thanks.

Good Luck for the weekend.

The Competition ends on the 6th may with the Final of the world snooker Championships. There will be added details on who you can pick closer to the event. I have tried to keep the points as even as possible throughout. I have also kept the picking as easy as possible, but if anyone has any possible improvements just say so, even to the bonus system. Cheers, Crunchie. Just need peeps to have a go now. The points for the darts may change if there are only 4 games at that point btw.

Seriously though, if I am able to assist on that side of it, just let me know.

@Crunchienut  I suggest the TGC Decathlon be offered in 5 stages , 

stage 1 Grand national  , tour of flanders

stage2  us masters  monte carlo masters

stage 3  World snooker, and boxing

stage 4 azerbiajan gp and London Marathon

stage 5 darts and spanish GP 

5 stages will be easier to do ...... maybe a stage winner , and an overall Gold silver and bronze winner ......Plus best newcomer prize for newbies....

Plan is peeps will be doing their own scoring and will have the responsibility of keeping all their results together by saving them...... but I will put up the points scored in a particular round, I wont expect everyone to count the games Nadal has lost or who has made 100 breaks . I will explain all before the comp starts. But it will save work all round. Then I only have to double check those in contention for prizes. That's the theory anyway as I don't know how that will work regarding mobile users. Cheers 1p for the offer its much appreciated.

Wheeeeeeeeeey!! the games are broken down into 2 per week purposely so people wont have to spend more than 10 mins each week doing their choices.  But Paul is in charge of Prizes and hopefully he will be kind enough to offer up a first and second at least.( a double spin and a single spin ?) I  think there is something for all non footy and horse racing lovers there? Cheers mate, I will see what he says.

I'll be doing the snooker, like we done the darts. Pick one from each seeded group 1-8, 9-16, 17-24 and 25-32.  So everyone has a couple good players and a couple of long shots to plump for. Also helps those who know nothing, to  know who the good players are. As for form etc, that's the only place a little knowledge comes in handy. Selby may be  number one, but not playing like it. Qualifiers are the week before so the final list will go up late.

When it comes to the Crucible its the tried and tested players mainly , but watch out for the chinese !!
