About Challengers Challenge

Challengers Challenge is the MTF game made especially for those members who like following ATP Challengers during the whole season. If you're one of them (or just wanna be one :p), try this game! The first installment which started in the summer of 2007 was a success, and 2008 was a succesful full season.

How to play

The game is very simple. It's a game of predicting champions, finalists and semi-finalists of challengers tournaments. As soon as the main draw of each tournament is out, each player will predict the champion, runner-up, and semi-finalists of each half of the draw.

SCORING SYSTEM

Champion correct: 200 points
Finalist correct: 150 points
Semi-finalist correct: 100 points

The scoring points will be cumulative. So, if you get the four semi-finalists right, the two finalists right and also the correct champion, you'll get 900 points. But if you do this, :worship: and you'll receive 100 additional points for a total of 1000 points!

BACK-UP PICK - In each tournament of the week, players are allowed to make a back-up pick. If one of the predicted players for the SF, F and Champion withdraws and not entered into the main draw, the back-up is used. IF NONE OF THE PREDICTED PLAYERS WITHDRAW, THE BACK-UP IS NOT USED AND YOU DON'T EARN ANY POINTS FOR IT!

Here's an example on how to predict:

Prostejov
SF: Hernych, Gabashvili, Ramirez-Hidalgo, C. Rochus
F: Hernych, Ramirez-Hidalgo
W: Ramirez-Hidalgo
BU: Greul

excepting Zabaleta and Machi Gonzalez. Cagon CH Challenge as it best :lol: :rolleyes:

At the end of 2008 he picked seeds by chronological order (100% cagon tipping) and fluked a 2nd, 1st and 2nd place in the last CC rounds...can't blame him for trying a strategy that "seemed to work".

However think it was a fluke and won't work long-term, in challengers it happens often that the first and/or second seeds are injured/out-of-form donkeys that everyone knows will lose in the first round. Sometimes even the eight seeds are the weaker part of the draw (out-of-form players who just happened to be ranked 100-120, while some in-form players ranked 120-200 run the show in the challenger).

crap I just realized there's 9000 Gonzalezes in Bogota, I meant Machi Gonzalez if it's not too late, he didn't play yet and all the other Gonzalezes are still in the draw :banghead:

edit: maybe he did play, I don't know, but it's not on the draw, but I don't know why he wouldn't have played yet... oh well... nevermind

midweek analysis
Bogota looking good. Ferreiro and Machi with good draws and G.Lapentti and Zeballos with difficult but possibles draws
Caltanisetta with Hutin and Malisse in QF vs Desein (is this guy good?) and Miranda (maybe tough for Malisso :shrug:)
Marrakech :wavey: difficult tournament to predict
Bangkok with Beckin and Mayerin doing their jobs :clap2:
Kudrin wasnt soo bad pick, but really i didnt see Udomchoker; Coria :silly: pathetic to put this gye to win the title
luckily I changed Guccione and H.T.Lee picks :D

What happens with people just picking Gonzalez without any firstname ?

Because Santiago will be in SF, and even if they likely meant Maximo, their picks is not wrong, just not accurate enough...

But if their picks is valid it's very unfair for other people because their odds are three times better than ours.

I would not be in favour of counting their picks because, as you said, they surely meant Maximo Gonzalez in that case.There should be a rule in this game to make sure that you pick a player without any ambiguity for the Beck, Lopez, Gonzalez ...

There is such a rule, which I have defined before. It has been established by prior art. It has been applied a few times in 2008 and 2007.

The rule is, if there is any logical ambiguity about a pick, then that pick is invalid. Period.

Bogota

SF: Ferreiro, Gonzalez M., Dabul, Gil

The Gonzalez is here is logically M. Gonzalez as specified.


Bogota:

SF: ZABALETA, GONZALEZ, DABUL, GIL
F: GONZALEZ, DABUL
W: DABUL
BU: HERNANDEZ


This Gonzalez pick (SF and F) is invalid because it is logically ambiguous.


Bogota
SF: Mayer, Gonzalez, Lapentti, Roitman
F: Mayer, Roitman
W: Mayer
BU: Hernandez


This Gonzalez pick (SF) is invalid because it is logically ambiguous.


Bogota
SF: Ferreiro, Gonzalez, G.Lapentti, Zeballos

W: Ferreiro
BU: Navarro



This Gonzalez pick (SF) in invalid because it is logically ambiguous.

BTW. If Maximo Gonzalez had reached the SF, then also the above three picks would have been invalid.

Here is the new standings (based on max number of points players can still reach) after SF in Bangkok and before SF in other challengers:

Huta Galung def. Marrero, so TankingTheSet takes the lead once again but Ozone, GustavoM_Fan and maybe Boarder35m can still win this Challenger #4.

Other matches in play:

Malisse vs. De Bakker 6/1 5/7 1/2 ...
Ferreiro vs. S.Gonzalez 1/0 ...

TankingTheSet
03-21-2009, 05:06 PM
The "max potential points" system can be a little misleading...
Ovbiously I won't get the potential points for Marrero or Malisse for the final, so my score will be lower. GustavoM_Fan is looking very good I think (fantastic predicting in Caltanissetta :worship:).

03-21-2009, 05:13 PM
De Bakker def. Malisse and Ferreiro won first set 6/2.

Ozone takes back the first spot.

2007 Alphen aan den Rijn

and Hutin leads in h2h :yeah: but very tough matches

Zeballin winning Giova Lapentti can be great------
2-2 in the 1st set :)

2007 Alphen aan den Rijn
The Netherlands Clay Q Huta Galung 7-6(7) 5-7 6-3

and Hutin leads in h2h :yeah: but very tough matches


I think Hutin will win. More experienced guy in finals, already won two clay challengers, and beat some good players. De Bakker beat Malisse, but how good that was is not clear given what career phase Malisse has arrived in (decline).

Quick update before Finals everywhere (except Sunrise where SFs still have to be played):

http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj35/trucul/CHALL_4_20090322.jpg

Ozone, Boarder35m, TankingTheSet and GustavoM_Fan can still win.

03-22-2009, 10:28 AM
Boarder35m has 200 depending on Ouahab and 350 on Tipsy.

Ozone has 500 depending on Berd (W) and Lopez (F).

My score is already final, so I can still win. :cool:

Only 1 final match remaining (Soderling vs. Berdych in Sunrise).

If Berdych wins, Ozone wins Challenger #4.
If Soderling wins, TankingTheSet wins Challenger #4.

Thanks again to trucul for providing the standings updates.

BTW. My health has improved a little at least in the sense of damage control with my new doctor after leaving my previous bad doctor. I am not 100% sure I will be able to update next round's standings but I probably can/will.
