You've read James Hoskin's The Road to Worlds 2011 articles covering the performances of some of Australia's best players at our record number of Regionals this year. You've perused Craig Giblett's low-down on some of the major players at this year's Australian Continental Championships. Maybe you just wouldn't mind having a crack at some of the always-awesome Australian Continentals prize pool.
If this is you, then get an entry into the 2011 AC Dream Team competition right away!
This is your chance to choose your dream team of players and put yourself in the running for not only bragging rights, but a cool prize to boot.
How to Play
1. You pick a team of up to five players with a total value of 100 or less. You may also select up to one player not listed.
2. Post your team in the official thread.
Playing is really simple, and the game is open to everyone. You don't need to be an expert on Australian players, but a little research does go a long way.
You may make changes to your team (please use the forum's function at the top-right corner of your entry) up until the closing date.
Like last year, a player's Dream Team (DT) points per tournament will be a cumulative total of each player's average performance (victory points divided by the number of rounds) at each tournament he or she participates in over the weekend. That means players participating in more tournaments over the five days will score more DT points overall than those only participating in a few tournaments.
Please have your entries posted by 11:59pm (in your timezone) on Tuesday the 28th of June 2011. No new entries or edits to existing entries will be allowed after 5pm (AEST (Sydney time), GMT+10) on Wednesday the 29th of June 2011, at which time all entries will be considered "locked". Any new entries or edits made after the closing date will not be eligible to participate.
The following table represents the values calcultated for the projected top DT players at this year's AC.
Can't be bothered doing any research? Not to worry! I have included each listed player's 2010 score, which formed part of the calculation of each player's values for this year. I also have included info on each player's movement in value over their 2010 value.
Note that unlisted players have a value of 5.

1. "" and GREEN text indicates rise in value, "" and RED text indicates fall in value; "", indicates value remained steady.
2. A variation in the system used for calculating player values in 2010 led to minor inconsistency in 2010 values. These will average out over time through value normalisation. This did not affect DT scoring calculations.
