PAW (PICK-A-WINNER) #8
VIÑA DEL MAR (CHILE) 2007
Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!
Playing is simple: over the course of the tournament choose any 13
matches in the Main Draw and post who you think will win them. The scoring points besides each fixture represent the points you score if the corresponding player wins. Whoever has the most points at the end of the tournament is the winner.
If this is the first time you’re playing or you’re not familiar with the rules of the game, here’s a link to the official PAW rules and FAQs thread on WTA World
and a link to the Supplement to the Official PAW Rules
In order to play in this tournament you should have posted a commitment to play here.
The deadline for commitments is January 28th, 2007
If you haven't posted a commitment until midnight (local tournament time) on January 28th, you can ask for a wildcard beginning at 12:01 am (local tournament time) on January 29. The number of WCs is limited to 5 per tournament
Any pick posted without having a WC or early commitment is not valid.
=> NEW From 2007 onwards we’ve limited the number of WCs for each player to 5 a year. You can keep track of how many you have used here
Please note the following instructions, in order to make the manager's task easier:
Please post your picks in the following format:
- PAW# Player A
(winner) over/def Player B
- # number of pick in ascending order (1 to 13)
Please use the official last names of players, not nicknames.
- A valid pick must include the names of both players (winner first) and the word “over” or “def” .
Before posting picks, check that the matches haven't started yet.
Use the Order of Play and Live Scoreboard.
A pick that is posted after a match started is invalid and may be replaced.
In case a match doesn't take place due to withdrawal or change of the draw, the pick is invalid and may be replaced. If a player retires or is defaulted after the match has started (even if just one point was played), the pick is valid.
If you want to amend a previous pick (cancel or change), quote the original post and add a new message to this thread.
Don't edit a post and never delete it!
A moderator (bad gambler) will scan this thread every day to track on deleted/edited posts. If you caught cheating, you will be automatically disqualified from this tournament. In certain case, you might be banned from playing temporarily or permanently. Please play fairly, everybody!
Remember, the Scoring Points beside each fixture represent the points you score if the corresponding player wins.
Don't forget, you're limited to 13 picks
throughout the whole tournament.
Note: Tie break rules
In case several players have the same number of points, the following rules will be used to determine their ranking:
1. The greater number of correct picks. If there is still a tie then:
2. The greater points of a single pick. If there is still a tie then the greater second-best pick, and so on. No pick will be considered better than 0 pts.
3. If there is still a tie then players will stay tied.
