    Unhappy difficult sentence

    Hi every one
    Please in this sentence
    "I'm sure your father's champion will be an even contest" (IT is the movie 47 ronnin)
    I don't understand the meaning of "even contest"
    Also I know that even is used as adverb but here is not used as adverb
    Thank you

    The two contestants (one of them his father's champion) will be evenly matched in ability. It won't be an easy victory for either of them.

    Re: difficult sentence

    kira, you must get into the habit of ending every sentence with a punctuation mark.

    Also, for the second time, a better title would have been an even contest.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    I am not a teacher.

    You've been told what 'even contest' means, but your sentence doesn't make sense.

    'Your father's champion', on his own, can't be 'an even contest'.
