FITD U.S. Spring Streak (1/5) - San Jose - Final update - Congrats to TheFearlessOne

Welcome to Fill-In-The-Draw 2012
U.S. Spring Streak
Tournament n°1/5 : San Jose




Here's what you need to know:

1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread. You may play more than one event per week.

2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

3) You must post your full prediction before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.

4) Every player can replace his/her draw only once per tournament whatever the reason of replacement.
If you are changing picks, you must post your picks in a new post. No editing posts under any circumstances.

5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may post just "Q" in you predictions if you wish to make them before the qualifiers are placed, or you may wait until they are placed to predict, but remember that you must post before the first match begins. If two qualifiers play each other, and you are predicting before they are placed, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For instance, you may say "Qualifier 1" which would indicate a prediction that the qualifier who is listed first in the draw would win, or you may say "Qualifier 2" which means that you predict the other qualifier to win.
If you didn't determine Qualifier 1 or 2, your pick will not be counted.

6) If a player receives a bye, you do not get points for predicting them into the second round.

7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round points for the tournament. For each player you predict correctly into the second round, you receive the round points for a first round victory, and so on.

8) The tiebreak rule is to go by how many correct picks the players had in each round, (for example)
1. # of correct Final picks
2. # of correct SF picks
3. # of correct QF picks
4. # of correct R16 picks, etc.
and if the players are still tied after counting each round, they will remain tied.

9) PLEASE REMEMBER:
-When you post your picks, please list ONLY the winners of each round. DO NOT have 'Player A d. Player B' as it will make the manager's job much easier
-Also, please do not use smilies in your picks, there is really no need for it.

For more info, please feel free to visit the FITD forum in the games section

Monfils - Tsonga

Simon - Gasquet - Del Potro - Federer

Re: FITD U.S. Spring Streak (1/6) - San Jose - Waiting for main draw

Thunderfish, Boomer23, and...
the FITD Board
Welcome You To The
U.S. SPRING STREAK


What Is It???

This is a series is just like the Eurasian Autumn Series at the end of the 2011 season that will work similarly to the U.S. Open Olympus Bonus Series. The only difference is that it is in February-March. Boomer23 or myself are running one tournament every week from now until the beginning of the clay court season and each of those tournaments will be part of the series. Your scores for each of the five tournaments will be added up for your final series score. There are five tournaments so the top 10 players will get bonus ranking points at the end of the series.

What Tournaments are Included In the Series???

There are 5 tournaments, one every week starting with San Jose and ending with Miami. The Tournaments Are:
San Jose
Memphis
Delray Beach
Indian Wells
Miami


What are the rules???

This is a fairly simples plan. Boomer23, and I (Thunderfish) will be the manager of all five tournaments. If you ever forget which tournament of the week is part of the series, just look for the one that one of us is managing. There are only a couple of rules:
1. You all have busy lives. I get it. You will not be eliminated from the series if you miss one tournament. You will simply receive no points for that tournament.
2. I will release a series leaderboard update at the end of every tournament. Please do not constantly ask about the total standings. There is no spreadsheet for this kind of leaderboard so I will have to format it myself to work. Do not worry. I am not a lazy leader, but when you put pressure on me, I am more likely to make small mistakes.
3. Please for the love of god, read the post on how to make your picks.
4. The FITD board has approved these rules and the series as a whole, so no skepticism please. I have gotten permission to do this.


Prizes (Obviously the most important part)...

All prizes are in the form of ranking points. Prizes are as follows:
1st - 300
2nd - 200
3rd - 150
4th - 100
5th - 75
6th - 50
7th - 30
8th - 20
9th - 15
10th - 10


What is each tournament worth for the series??

San Jose - 840
Memphis - 1880
Delray Beach - 920
Indian Wells - 4240 (I may have to check the math on this one)
Miami - 4240 (Again, math may be slightly off)


Thanks d_s for helping make this happen!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Enjoy the series. Hopefully, this will turn out as successfully as the Eurasian Autumn Circuit!!!

Monfils - Tsonga

Simon - Gasquet - Del Potro - Federer

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
