Pick three players and nominate one of them as your captain (for tiebreaking). 3 points for each win in the World Championship (including the Sunday).

That is some line up even without PV and LSV. How do we go about drafting it? Pick your top 3 including a captain for tie breaks and allow dupes? Or 1-8, 8-1? was quite fun at the last pro tour so let's do something similar for the World Championship.

I will partake!

Happy with whatever ruling system you want to go on, but with so few players, I feel that the randomised drafting order of 1-8, 8-1 could have a large impact.

I'm in too. 

I think picking 3 players plus captain will be best. Means that you can support a limitless number of entrants rather than actually trying to draft the 16 available players.

I vote for triples rather than drafting

I'm in.  If we're doing triples i'll take:

Ben Stark, Martin Juza, Brian Kibler with Stark as the captain.

So much for keeping it under your hat then Ben!

OK, open season on 3 picks with a Captain.

You may not pick an exact set that has been picked before (but you can differ by a single pick or even just by who is the captain).

The advantage of going later is that you get to see who everyone picked but the advantage of going earlier is that you get to pick freely.


Shahar Shenhar

Ben Stark

David Ochoa (cpt)

Reid Duke (cpt), Yuuya Watanabe and Josh Utter-Leyton

Willy (hehehe), stark (capt) & Martell

Wrapter (captain)



Goddamn this is hard.

I know. I think you could pick any 3 at random and probably do fine.
