Special prize one frame knockout played when time permits the CALSBERG PPC Challenge.

Each team can select or play off at previous venue before they arrive, one of their players to play in the Calsberg PPC challenge.

48 players will be put into a hat and drawn out one at a time to play off to a winner, the winner will receive a Supreme pool table as a prize,

Now we may not have enough time to do this as a one off, so it may come down to when the two players are available at the same/spare time, if you get my meaning but it will get finished by the end of the weekend and hopefully we can show the final frame live on the streaming.

Sorry to Kit Kat, thought I put this on the first page.

So each team will select one player or they can play against each other BEFORE they arrive.

All 48 names have to be given to me before the event starts.

There will be 12 sections of 4 teams, one player from each of the 4 teams in the same section will be drawn out and played as a PPC down to one winner.

This will leave 12 players remaining, they will then be drawn out over the rest of the event, down to two players who will play live on the streaming one frame to see who wins one of my tables.

Just to confirm I have spoken with Stuart from ( We Are Perth ) and he has advised me that £200 was paid into the account last night, can you please confirm that this is correct, cheers Ross

Right , have today asked Michael to sort out the computer format for this event, it will not be easy that's for sure.

We will have 12 groups of 4 teams.

The top team from each group will go into the last 32 seeded, along with the best 4 second placed teams.

This gives us 16 teams, they will be joined by the other 8 runners ups, to give us now 24, plus the 8 best third placed teams from the 12 groups, to give us the last 32 knockout rounds..

So in total there will be 48 teams and after the group stages we will be down to the last 32.

It will go firstly on points, 2 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. Them frames for and if a tie the result against each other in the group.

If we have a tie from different groups for the third placed best teams then there will be a one frame play off to decide who goes through.

I would have hoped for groups of 6 like last year Ross to ensure everyone is getting their monies worth. A potential of only three matches isn't too appealing.

Understand that son but with increasing the event to 10 frames, only up one frame but it does cause a problem for time.

I work out 6 hours for one session of all groups, this only giving them 1 and a half hours to play the 10 frames, some only on one table.

This would mean needing 30 hours just to cover the 6 sessions.

If I started at 6 pm on Friday, finish at midnight, that is only one session.

Start at 9 am on Saturday morning, 3 pm next session 9pm next session, would mean we would be finishing around 3 am for the fourth session. Then having to do the last session at 9 am on the Sunday morning to start the knockout at 3 pm last 32, two hours for each of that means the last 16 does not start until 7 pm and so on.

What you have to understand is that yes, the teams are smaller but we have 48 teams, not 16 or 24 like the Supers.

Also remember players are guaranteed to play 2 frames per match now, so that is a total of 6 frames, when you look at the Super 11s just there, players were only guaranteed to play 5 match's , so 5 frames in total.

I get your point Ross, it will be a squeeze whatever you do, but here’s a suggestion if it was 8xGroups of 6. Some may need adjusted, and you may want the order to be different, but it gives you a rough idea. One and a half hours should be OK given that by the end everyone will be on two tables as they become available. Found some space for the PPC event too.

Hahaha! Sorry I was only thinking it was 6 groups for some reason. In that case it really is pushed! In theory, you could start early and finish later on the Friday, so that's an extra two round. Same with the Saturday, that's an extra two. And then add in another on the Sunday morning. It's just about doable!

Must be hard to get this right Ross but only getting 3 games is not appealing at all especially for the 5 teams travelling from the north always a great weekend but 3 games does not make me look forward to this. Just my opinion.

how about 8x6 groups
but best of 11
more matches, maybe less games though
free up the tables for the tighter matches
everyone will at least get a game a match
just an thought

Listen guys I'm all for giving as many match's as I can, David , if you look back in these posts asked for it to be increased to 10 frames, thus giving each player two frames each match.

Gazgri, having best of 11 is more frames if they go all the way, if not then some players get one frame others perhaps two so that is out.

You lot go and think this all out come back to me with times of match's, if it can be done then I will change it.
