Talking SUICIDE SHANGHAI OOP + DAY ONE PICKS!!!


SUICIDE SHANGHAI DAY ONE PICKS!!!

We have adjusted a few rules specifically for Suicide Shanghai so please read below carefully before naming your pick. This is our first experiment playing suicide during the masters cup so it'll be interesting to see if this works or not. Maybe everybody will end up winning, maybe not.

How to play Suicide Shanghai:
  • We pick one player per day to win; if he wins, you are still in the game, if he loses, you are out.
  • NEW RULE FOR SUICIDE SHANGHAI: You will be allowed to pick any two players twice. This does not mean that if your pick loses then you can pick him again. Your pick still has to win his match. If he does, then you can pick him again.
  • You have until beginning of the day's matches to pick your player. Once the matches have started, you cannot pick a player. Here's a tool to help you figure out time zones (Shanghai) Go here to see the GMT for when matches begin play.
  • Because there will only be two singles matches played per day, NO LATE PICKS WILL BE ALLOWED AT ALL. Hostess reserves the right to accept/reject participants .
  • If you pick a player who retires during matchplay or suddenly withdraws before a match, you are out.
  • If you pick a player whose match is rescheduled for the next day, your original pick still stands.
  • If you find that the only picks remaining are players that you have already picked, then you are out of the game.
  • No changing your mind! Once you've picked a player, it sticks.
  • To avoid confusion, when naming your pick please refer to him by his given last name, do not name him by his first name or nickname.
  • VCASH AWARD FOR WINNER(S)! Bank Of MTF is offering a vcash award to the lucky winner(s) of Suicide Shanghai. Multiple winners will split the prize.
  • in order to win this vcash pot, the winner(s) must have picked a player to win every day of the tournament; no sick/off days allowed.
  • no doubles matches will be included in this game.
  • Good luck


The Shanghai eight have been drawn into the following groups:
Red Group: Roger Federer, Guillermo Coria, Ivan Ljubicic, David Nalbandian
Gold Group: Rafael Nadal, Andre Agassi, Nikolay Davydenko, Gaston Gaudio


Matches begin at 1:00pm local (Shanghai) time. You have until then to make your pick.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
