US Open 'Battle of the Boards' pick 'em contest

The US OPEN 'BATTLE OF THE BOARDS' PICK 'EM contest is open for entries at

Qualifiers have already been placed and entries will close at 15.00 GMT / 4 pm UK / 11 am US EDT / 16.00 CET on MONDAY 30 August.

We run these competitions for all of the slams and about half of the Masters events - it works like FITD on here or the USO Bracket Challenges (so you can enter in a couple of minutes by re-using your picks for either of those contests) but with a different scoring system (which balances the effects of rounds a bit more) and a team element - as well as playing for the individual title, you can compete against,,,, etc, to help MTF to win the team title too.

There is also a Hall of Fame and an overall rolling ranking system - your best 7 scores from up to 9 tournaments in a 12-month period count, with slam scores allowed to count twice, so you actually end up counting 7 scores from 13.

While anyone who enters will count towards the individual competition, you need at least five entrants for MTF to end up counting as a full team - you usually manage that fairly easily though and you actually won Miami this year.

At Roland Garros, 19 of you collectively came 3rd/15 in the teams league and 2nd in the team KO competition (which both use the same picks but work slightly differently) and both Björki and Deathless Mortal from MTF finished in the individual top 10 out of 347 entrants.

At Wimbledon, 16 of you finished 4th/16 in the team league and Ivanatis finished 8th out of 420 entrants.

Good luck!

Re: US Open 'Battle of the Boards' pick 'em contest

hey steven, I asked in the thread for Toronto but got no answer so I'll ask here as well....

hey steven, Toronto has been my first tournament and I got to say i'm loving it so far. However I was wondering if it was possible to add another Forum to the teams? although I love this forum and wouldn't mind staying on team MTF, I'm more active on . Is there anyway you could add that to the list? The people on that forum love to play games and we could easily get more than 5 participants to play in the team competition for the next draw. Let me know
