For ease of point scoring we will be using the classic RAP system this year!

Basically you have to predict the Last 16, Quarter Finalists, Semi Finalists, winner and runner-up.
Points will be scored based on the players seeding (top 32),with a coefficient added to each round. Unseeded players entering in the first round will have a base point of 40, while players entering in the pre-lims will have a base point of 50.


LAST 16 - Pick 16 players
You get their PDC Order of Merit ranking points (i.e. MvG is ranked 1 in the world, so he would score 1 point, Alan Norris is 15th, so worth 15 points, Steve West is unseeded so worth 40 points, Paul Lim is in pre-lims so worth 50 pts)

QUARTER FINALS - Pick 8 players
You get their PDC Order of Merit ranking points x2 (i.e. MvG is ranked 1 in the world, so he would score 1 x 2 points (2), Alan Norris is 15th, so worth 30 points [15x2], West is 80 points and Lim 100pts)

SEMI FINALS - Pick 4 players
You get their PDC Order of Merit ranking points x5 (i.e. MvG is ranked 1 in the world, so he would score 1 x 5 points (5), Norris is 15th, so worth 75 points [15x5], West is 200 points, Lim 250)

RUNNER-UP - Pick 1 player
You get their PDC Order of Merit ranking points x10 (i.e. MvG is ranked 1 in the world, so he would score 1 x 10 points (10), Norris is 15th, so worth 150 points [15x10], West is 400pts, Lim 500pts)

WINNER - Pick 1 player
You get their PDC Order of Merit ranking points x50 (i.e. MvG is ranked 1 in the world, so he would score 1 x 50 points (50), Norris is 15th, so worth 750 points [15x50], West is 2000pts, Lim 2500pts)
