Not sure what the failed list is but it seems apt. :laugh:

The problem with these types of tournaments is that you seriously need to build your lead, or at least be stable in the upper 1/2 of the table, in the group rounds. After that the matches become less and less in quantity and it's just about impossible to climb the ladder in any significant way. I probably should say already, "See you all next year!" :laugh: :cheers:

I disagree with Pete anywho. I, for one, am still well in with a shout if you ask me.

Personally I'm sharing PeteC's doom and gloom this round - especially when I've bet on an Ingurlund win (after my opening selections) :roll: :oops:

My personal estimation, the top 6 above have a chance to win it. Most of us will sit back and watch. :cheers:
