2014 PAW Managers Thread - Only Paris left!

Welcome to PAW Managers Thread 2014

If no manager takes a tournament until 1 day before the main draw is released, the tournament is cancelled, the players commited to this tournament are moved to the other(s) of the week (if there's any) and the circuit moves on.

PAW scoring points calculation
Code:
Formula:

PLAYER'S A ranking pts: A
PLAYER'S B ranking pts: B

Player's A PAW scoring pts: = SQRT (100*B / A) or 10*SQRT(B)/SQRT(A)
Player's B PAW scoring pts: = SQRT (100*A / B) or 10*SQRT(A)/SQRT(B)
(SQRT=square root)

EXAMPLE:

Madrid 2007 Final:

FEDERER, Roger vs NALBANDIAN, David

FEDERER, Roger rank pts: 7355
NALBANDIAN, David rank pts: 1195

FEDERER, Roger PAW Scoring pts = SQRT (100*1195/7355) = 4.03 = 4
NALBANDIAN, David PAW Scoring pts = SQRT (100*7355/1195) = 24.81 = 25

FEDERER, Roger vs NALBANDIAN, David ..........(4-25)

Note:

1. The ranking list to be used for PAW scoring points is the ranking at the time of the draw,
   normally it's the previous week's ranking (but in Indian Wells and Miami case 
   the draw comes out AFTER the new ranking is released)

2. Round off all scoring pts to the nearest integer, eg. 10.49 = 10 but 10.50 = 11.

3. In case of unranked player or a player who has less than 40 ranking pts, 
   he is allocated 40 pts for the calculation of PAW scoring points.

For beginning manager

Code:
Basically, the manager has 2 main tasks:

1. Publishing the matches and scoring points. It's important that the scoring points are
 published as soon as possible, because the players take them in consideration when
 selecting their picks for the next day of play.
2. Calculating the scores for each player and publishing the league standings. This is
 usually done after each day of play (or after each round in 2-weeks tournaments). Although
 the timing of publishing the standings is not as important as the scoring points, it would
 be good do do it as soon as possible. Players like to know where they rank, especially in
 the latter stages (after the QF and SF) when players take the standing and the picks of
 other players in consideration.

Generally, the time required for the standings depend on the # of matches played, so the
 work load at the start of the week is the hardest and it gets lighter as the tournament
 progresses.

More matches and more players yield more work for the manager... that's why we suggest that
 people who aren't sure they have the time to do it to take smaller tournaments for a start. 

Of course, to be able to function as manager you must have access to the internet on every
 day of the tournament (from the time the main draw is done until the final). 
You should be aware what's going on in the tournament and be ready to make adjustments when
 necessary (for example: occasionally the draw is changed due to withdrawal so the matches
 and scoring points have to be changed).

Another important task is to check the validity of picks, in particular look after "late
 picks", i.e. picks that were posted after the match start, or may have started, and
 therefore should be marked as an "invalid pick" and not be counted. Note - Start times of
 all matches can be found on the xscores.com website (tennis section).

A manager should also know the fine details of the game rules, so it is suggested to read
 thoroughly post #1 in the "Official PAW Rules and FAQ's thread" (link to which should
 appear on the first message of the PAW tournament thread).

All managers, please don't forget about the name format in ranking table which I've mentioned here
Name has exactly 23 symbols (letters)
,
thank you



ZIP file includes simple template excel sheets for 13, 16, 26-picks paw and special Evita's Templates, it can be easy modified by inserting (or deleting) additional lines and columns.

Always bel18ved.

Re: 2014 PAW Managers Thread - Need manager for Chennai

Unfortunately I won't be able to manage PAW events until March (exams in January + travel to Mexico in the first 3 weeks of February). I can help with the Australian Open after the 17th of January, but it starts the 13rd if I remember correctly. But if the manager needs help I can do some work copying picks to the Excel spreadsheet or updating SP's, but I cannot take the whole tournament because I won't be able until 2nd Round. Sorry guys.

I take Dubai, Casablanca and Barcelona.

Re: 2014 PAW Managers Thread - Need manager for Chennai

It makes me sad to see how few people manage these events. I will be back eventually, but really, I played this game maybe 10 times in my life and I've managed 4 events. Its not hard, and really sad to see so many people expect to play, but take no responsibility in running things.

Thank you to all of those who do participate.

Re: 2014 PAW Managers Thread - Need manager for Chennai

I feel really bad that I won't be of much help in first half of this year. I'm busier since November and will be more busy from February. But, as I'm still able to find some free times everyday till February's first week, I'd like to manage Sydney and Australian Open.

Thanks Bryan!

I've already taken Sydney but thanks, you can manage it! I really need to be fit(haha ) to manage Australian Open. So no tournament before AO would be even better for me.

Btw, is this your first time managing a PAW tournament? Last year's Sydney was my first PAW management. If you are new then welcome and good luck. If you need any help then we all are here to help you.

When you put the names of the ATP player you have to do it in thid format Tursunov, Dmitry. The comma is very important, I guess that can be that

Re: 2014 PAW Managers Thread -

In section PAW13, when I put picks in players name, it appears always N/A.
What does this mean?
How to post players picks?
