Re: The Official PAW Rules + Supplement

Question: How do managers come to the total points assigned for a given match?

Ask about a specific match, it will be easier to answer.

PAW: #94(15 nov 2010) --> #71(7 feb 2011)

There was no specific match in mind, I'm just wondering how the points are distributed. Let's say Novak Djokovic faces back to back players, each ranked just outside the top 100 in his first two matches in a Masters 1000, i'll call them Players A and B. He's played each player multiple times, dominated them; the points distribution for picking Player A vs Djokovic is 42-3. The points for picking Player B vs Djokovic in the subsequent round is 36-2.

So, I'm just wondering how exactly are the exact points determined? What makes a manager choose 42 instead of 36 points for the upset pick?

Re: The Official PAW Rules + Supplement

You are at a loss to name a specific match? Well, I shall choose.
Second round, Isner vs Brown
Ranking points - in post #5
Isner 2715
Brown 580
2715 / 580 = 4.681...
sqrt(4.681...) = 2.163...
1 / 2.163... = 0.462...
2.163... * 10 -> 21
0.462... * 10 -> 5
Isner vs Brown (5-21)

PAW: #94(15 nov 2010) --> #71(7 feb 2011)

Thanks anyway, but I was pointed to a thread that explains it.

Asking for info

About Pick Numbering

Currently pick number is usually sent in increment order like 01, 02, and so on.
If order is in decrement, for example, pick #16 is first sent followed by #15 through #01, does it take extra work on thread management?

Unusual numbering conducts to a small increase of work. Copying of picks has routine character (without use of intelligence), and at infringement of numbering it is necessary to think slightly - and there is an extra work!

Thanks, purtov45!
Testing is to be over in the current French Open.
From Stuttgart on, PAW numbers will be sent in usual numbering.
