The BC Cup - Report

This was an experimental quiz conducted at the Boat Club in Coep by Aniket Khasgiwale , Yash Marathe and Aditya Gadre .

The format was as follows: There was a 25 question written elims from which we drew seeds and made eight teams . Then there were 4 Quarters each of which had two legs . Home- where all the questions go directly to one team and Away- when all questions go direct to the other team .
Instead of points we awarded 'Goals' for correct answers. In keeping with UEFA rules , in case of a tie the team with more away goals went through. Then there was a semi and a final.

Seeds: 1. Anand S , 2. Aditya Chandorkar , 3. Suvajit Chakraborty , 4. Arnold D'souza , 5. Pratyush Srivastava , 6. Omkar Nene , 7. Sameer Deshpande , 8. Abhishek Nagaraj

Quarters had 10 questions each . 5 to each time.

QF1: Anand S vs Abhishek Nagaraj
Score: 2-2 Away goals : 1-1 . Anand won on the tiebreaker.

QF2: Arnold D'souza and Ratan Sebastian v/s Pratyush and Salil
Score: 3-3 Away Goals: 2-2 . Arnold & Ratan won after a very lengthy tiebreaker.

QF3: Suvajit and Sudarshan Shidore v/s Omkar Nene and Manish
Score: 2-3 . Omkar and Manish won this one on aggregate.

QF4: Aditya Chandarkar and Yasho Tamaskar v/s Sameer Deshpande and Suraj Menon
Score: 2-2 Away goals: 0-1 . Suraj and Sameer go through on away goals.

Semis had 20 questions each . 10 to each team.

SF1: Anand and Yasho (draft pick as Anand was alone) v/s Arnold and Ratan
Score: 4-4 Away goals: 1-2 . Anand jumped the gun on the last question and got it wrong to allow Arnold and Ratan to go through on away goals.

SF2: Omkar and Manish v/s Sameer and Suraj
Score: 2-5 . Sameer and Suraj hit 3 away goals on the trot and ran away with it.

Finals: The finals had 36 questions .

Arnold and Ratan v/s Sameer and Suraj
Score: 2-10 .

A surprisingly low scoring , anti-climatic final where Sameer and Suraj hit their peak while Arnold and Ratan lost the plot.

Any comments about the quiz are welcome.
