My prediction is that if Gianni plays the final he will be the champion. He is by far the best, and cannot lose the big screen final. But he may not reach that last stage. There is a bigger chance that he gets disqualified in qf if he has to play against some of the other big guns.

I want Jorn to win the lovely Silver Cup. Come on mate, screw it on saturday and have fun on sunday!

About the Shirt of Shame winner, I guess it should be for Dino Dini, but I hope we spare him the dishonor this time.

However, I'm too stubborn to screw it. If I go through, I'll just have to accept my faith. ;)

mmm, i'm still thinking on it, I believe there will be a real Royal Rumble this year, I mean, there are many players that have the numbers to get the big screen and the Top 8, I'm sure we will have some trilling match to define final position in groups with players with same points, or even 4 players closed in 3-4 points. Every single point reached in the groups will be decisive.

Of cource Gianni has to be considered as the favorite to win this. Perhaps boring prediction, but Fabio as runner up - he impressed very much last year. Third...one of the two norwegians...ok I go for Cristopher.

Interesting with Ko2 is that, just as in tennis, most of us have certain opponents that we tend to struggle against (or opposite) - even if rankings suggests otherwise. When looking at the groups there are players I would certainly like to avoid. For me, Steve Camber in group three is a huge avoid! I rarely win vs him. Swift in group 4 would also be a bad pick. I group 5 I would like to skip Michele, this when I struggled against him for long periods in our groupmatch last year. Group 1, Gianni in my group would not cheer me up.

Many unseeded players...will we have any surprise-Irish? Thomasz, seeded in group 10 - longtraveller from Poland could be potential bananaskin.

Target for my self has to be QF, but hopes for unexpected semi is bigger than ever.

I made my own seedings a week ago. Some of the players I know very little about so sorry for overseeing some talents therefore I only put the top 16,

1. Gianni T
2. Fabio F
3. Andy G
4. John H
-----
5. Christopher AD
6. Oliver St
7. Thor
8. Robert S
-----
9. Jacob K
10. Alessandro V
11. Sandro T
12. Steve C
-----
13. Lee W
14. Jorn F
15. Steve S
16. Klaus L

The biggest question-mark I have put by Robert Swifts name. How will his involuntary absence affect his performance, will he be out of form from the start and work his way to a good day 2 performance or will he start strongly playing high on inspiration and fade as the tournament proceeds or will there be another scenario. Mainly I gave him the 8th place because of his tournament records before the break but also because i had a hard time singling out one of me, Alessandro and Sandro to put in the 8th spot.

Some predictions:
- John will do well if he takes my advice and plays 424.
- Alessandro will score more goals in second halves than in first halves.
- Oliver will score at least one goal off a corner.
- Steve S will get a player sent off by himself.
- Fabio will score on a KO lob.
