You spend 6865 on Ferrer hoping for 250 points, could have 40 more points guarenteed for almost 400 less budget

not a whole lot of value in Ferrer this week
You should probably not share that kind of info if you want people to keep playing this game.

I don't understand any of the formulas y'all keep posting and I don't understand how it's better to pick people who will lose in their first or second match over people who are likely to go all the way.

I only picked 2 players for Memphis.

You can get 1520 for picking eight players in Memphis.

The maximum in Buenos Aires or Marseille for eight players is 760. It just makes sense to build your team around a tournament that is worth more points.

You "can" if they succeed?? or you will even if they all lose in R2??

I'm fine with gambling on long shots, but if Serve is saying five round 2 finishes (meaning the players he picked all lost in R2) are worth more than the top seed winning the tournament, then I won't be interested in playing this game for much longer.

no, if you have the winners you will always have more points.

I only picked 2 players for Memphis.
I'm on my phone now so the explanation here will be as shot as possible

The thing you quoted mean...

In Memphis If you picked those 8 players you'd be guarantees 290 points. Bogomolov plays russel winner gets 45 points, since you had both you get 45 points. Same for the other 3 matches. So 4x45 is 180.

Then Bogomolov/Russell plays Harrison/kubot, winner gets 45 more points(they had 45 for round 1 they get 90). Same for the other match in te bottom quarter haas/Donskoy v. Lopez/Becker. So 2x45 is 90. Add that to the 180 first round points you have 270. Bogomolov ha 20 points from qualifying so its 290, and actually I forgot but Russell is a LL so that's maybe 12? More points so 302.

Then any points that your 2 quarter finalists get after that is bonus but you're guaranteed at least 302.

I'm not saying this is a wise strategy, I prefer to pick players who aren't playing each other, but its a wiser ate they than picking Ferrer because Ferrer costs more than those 8 players combined and he will earn less guaranteed.

The reason most people are loading up on Memphia players is because its a 500 event, but most importantly its a very very weak 500 event, the players in marseille will cost more than those in Memphis and will earn less. BA costs about te same but will earn less.

A non seed in Memphis who wins 1 match will earn 45 points. Said player may cost say maybe 800 of your budget. A seed who wins 2 matches in marseille say Simon wil earn 45 points, same as the Memphis non seed but will cost way way more.

Basically Memphis earns more as its a 500 and the players cost less

Re: The Lurkers Melting Pot - Sponsored by all our "rocking" Lurkers !

A week like this is rare though because the 500 event actually has worse cheaper players. Such occurances wont happen very often at all.

It's still help to have winners, and not saying Ferrer is a terrible option this week, but I wouldn't pick him until I've exhausted the cheaper options in Memphis, lost of 45 pointers add up to over 250 fairly quickly

Only Roger-Vasselin in action so far today for me.
