Re: Ask the board Thread

Yes I think so, too. But I'm not a GD expert... But it's so unsual that probably nobody is.
Anybody else from the board can confirm?

Re: Ask the board Thread

I'm not a member of the board but as I read the rules there is no doubt Hellcat wins on lower points for G. As we can see here in example 2:

Re: Ask the board Thread

For week 29 tournaments we are using June 23 rankings?

Yes . It's the ranking from two weeks before in this case it would be June 30 but like that week we don't have ranking because it's was the second week of an slam you should use June 23

Re: Ask the board Thread

Just to be sure...

Player A: Delbonis 64 46 64
Player B: Delbonis 46 64 63
Result: Delbonis 64 61

...this is tied on PTS, right?

Both players 1 set in correct order, both players 1 correct scoreline.
The fact that Player A has the 64 as first set doesn't give him any extra points.

Correct. 64 61 and 61 64 will give the same amount of points even though the former looks much better to the eye.

Re: Ask the board Thread

Hi Everyone,

Just a query on the deadline issue.

Had a player (ThePhenom) send his picks 12 minutes after the deadline that I had set, however due to rain the schedule of play has been delayed by 3 hours at the actual event. Should I allow his tips to count?

Thanks in advance...

Sadly, his picks cannot count.

From the rules (FAQ):

5) I forgot to send my picks, but the whole round was postponed to the next day due to rain. No lucky losers replaced me in the draw. Am I still able to play?
No. No picks can be accepted after the deadline, which doesn't change because of rain, darkness or any other events which may change the time the first match starts.

Thanks Litotes, I expected as much but thought I should check to be fair.

Re: Ask the board Thread

With my week 29 tournament, Kaohsiung, am I able to bring the deadline forward. Currently set at 18:00 CET, which would give the entrants about 6-8 hours to get their tips in IF there was qualifying.

As there are not enough entrants for draw, I am proposing to cancel qualifying and just fill the draw?

Yeah, managers can always bring the entry deadline forward if it gives little time for picks. 6PM CET is standard but not suited for Australian or East Asian events.

With no qualifying I'd just do as you suggest, just inform that entry will be open until you have 32 singles entrants and 16 doubles pairs or until you have to make the draw.

Re: Ask the board Thread

I have 33 entries on Binghamton atm and the final deadline is in two more hours.

I know the rules say that in this case there should be 31 DE and a 1-match qualifying round, but if there are no more entries can I extend the deadline until tomorrow 6PM CET? Because I don't think there will be more than 8 players playing qualies.

And what about doubles? Final deadline for doubles is also today 6PM CET? I have 13 entries there atm. Can I extend the doubles deadline until the draw fills or sunday 6PM CET?
