Welcome to the Crucible

This page is created for being drilled, grilled, and thrilled not only but especially for the World Snooker Championship in Sheffield. First of all, it is supposed to make snooker even more pivotal to everyone who already loves it.

News about tournaments can be found in the section Messages. Guesses can be made until the anounced starting times. For the bonus questions this equals the opening match!

So, give it a chance and log in to make your guesses in the Prediction Centre. There is nothing to lose.

Summary of rules

Instead of the players' real names the official nicknames are displayed (if they have one). A list and more rule details can be found at Game Rules.

  • 'Best of' is written in brackets behind the matchday: e.g. 'Last64 (7)'
  • round number = Points for predicting the winner
  • correct result = doubled points
  • draw = triple points
  • bonus questions: 5 points per answer
  • bonus questions: position dependent points for rankings
  • walkovers (w/o) are ignored

Example: 'Last32 (11)' is the 3rd round of the UK Championship. Forecasting the right winner equals 3 points and even 6, if the result is predicted correctly.

And now: Enjoy!
