BC Cup 2012

This is the BCQC's annual solo, open quiz to crown the Best Sports Quizzer. This is the fourth edition. ( Reports for 2009, 2010 and 2011 editions). This year we plan to make a couple of changes - the number of questions have increased from 148 to 154 (a small change) and the prize money has more than doubled (not-so-small change). The quiz is coupled with the BCQC's June Open Quiz to be conducted by the inaugural BC Cup champ Suraj Menon

First, a 30 question elim determines 8 qualifiers (or as Quarter finalists). 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 36 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 28 question final. The match consists of a home leg and an away leg. Home leg essentially means your direct questions. If one gets a direct question wrong which 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 154 questions + tie breakers.


QMs: Yash Marathe, Aniket Khasgiwale and Aditya Gadre
