I agree it is difficult to understand all the rules, especially for somebody who does not have English as their first language.

I am four times your age and I had to read the threads several times before I was sure I knew what I was doing, but once I had grasped the principle it made sense.

I don't think you are helping yourself by asking questions bit by bit and having different people answer. You may not ask all the right questions, and there may still be gaps in your understanding. As Luinir says, you should read the guide, but you may find it difficult to understand everything.

What you really need is for somebody to go through an actual situation with you, step by step, so that you can see how the order of play is posted in the thread, how the picks are made, and how the manager decides the winner.

I hope somebody will volunteer to tutor you in the next few days, because you are clearly keen to learn, but if the worst comes to the worst I will try to help you when you actually have to start sending in your picks for Burnie.

I will be playing Dallas that week, so there will be no conflict of interest.

SR is Set Ratio
For a match with "SR", you need to post like this: Federer 2-0
For a match without "SR" or "PTS", you just need to post the winner like this: Federer

And you shouldn't post your picks in the thread. You should send a private message to the manager or someone specified in the OOP post.

Usually we just compare the right winners you pick. If there's a tie, the total count of right SRs will be used. If there's still a tie, the one with the right pick in SR1 will win, etc.
If all SRs are the same, PTS will be compared. The rule to compare PTS is explained in TT rule thread.
Because there's very little chance we'll have to compare PTS, only 2 PTS for a round is enough.

Luinir - you still have MaratPure on your entry list. He cant play here until he pulls out of Dallas. You have 16 other players so just wait until he says one way or other where he's playing before including him.
