The BC Cup 2011

This is the BCQC's annual individual, open quiz to crown the Best Sports Quizzer. This is the third edition. ( Reports for 2009 and 2010 editions)

Format: "This is vastly, hugely mindbogglingly big quiz - if you thought Anand's lit quiz was long, that's just peanuts compared to this" - Douglas Adams
First, a 30 question elim determines 8 qualifiers . These 8 people take part in a 60 question quarter final. The top four go through to the semi final. The semi-final will consist of 34 questions with scoring reset to zero. This is to keep the 'winning three consecutive matches' concept constant from last year's edition. The top two then go to the final.
The finalists will then face off one-on one for a 24 question final. The match consists of a home leg and an away leg. Homeleg is basically direct questions. If one gets a direct question wrong wich the opponent answers, it counts as an away goal and is used for tie breakers (as per UEFA rules:) )


So that's a total of 148 questions + tie breakers.
