PAW (Pick A Winner) - Beijing 2008
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 in theSEPTEMBER 2008 commitment thread[/URL]. The deadline for commitments is September 10th, 2008
If you haven't posted a commitment until midnight (local time) on July 8th, you can ask for a wildcard. 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.
Posting your picks
Please post your picks in the following format:
PAW# Player A (winner) over/def Player B (loser)
# 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. 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 defaulted after the match has started (even if one point was played), the pick is valid.

Changing your picks
If you want to ammend a previous pick (cancel or change), quote the original post and add a new message. Don't edit the 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!
Don't forget, you're limited to 13 picks throughout the whole tournament.
