Rules :

-Changes are allowed after the first prediction post, but they MUST be made before play starts. Only ONE change allowed per day. Changes to Tournament Winner/High Break NOT permitted once first posted.
-Predictions from banned posters are allowed, if verified properly. They HAVE to be posted on 666 before play starts, under all circumstances.
-If a mistake is made with prediction (eg 55-3 is put instead of 5-3, then I will allow changes. Only the first time a player does it will I accept what I think he meant (I'd assume he meant 5-3 in the above case) but if the user does it more than once, I will only allow a corrected post for the prediction to count.
-Any trouble-making or WUMming is to be ignored.
-In the event of a tie, the player with the higher no. of correct results wins, then correct scores.
-If no-one gets the High Break bonus spot on, it will NOT go to the nearest wrong prediction.

Chumba, well done on running a fantastic prediction contest, I am sure I speak for everyone when I say cheers for taking your time out to do it :). After a bad start I managed to get some respectability with a climb up the table. <ok>
