Tennis Win Streak

Tennis Win Streak is a very simple game to play! I will post one match each day for you to pick the winner of, all you have to do is pick the correct winner!

The aim is to build the longest streak of correct picks. If you pick incorrectly your streak goes back to 0!

There will be no matches to pick on Thursday as none of the matches, on paper, look very close. I could add Challenger tournaments to the game to lessen the chance of a day without any matches to pick. Please let me know what you think

After receiving no feedback at all :confused: and the quarter-final matches in Monte Carlo looking like lopsided affairs, I have decided to include Challenger tournaments in the game on days when there are no difficult ATP matches to pick. Tomorrow's match(es) will follow shortly

I have to work until 22.00 CET on Friday so I won't be around to post matches for Saturday. If someone would like to post matches that would be great. All I ask is that they are hard to call matches. Choose either from Monte Carlo, Barcelona qualifiers or a challenger tournament.

Sorry I didn't say anything about your idea. As a matter of fact I don't mind that not every day has matches and I don't like the idea of having challenger matches, as those completely different kind of picks! But that is just my opinion, that's why I won't pick for tomorrow as well!

No problem :yeah: I'm hoping that in the weeks when there are two ATP tournaments there will be at least 1 match to choose from Monday to Friday, and then if the semis/finals are uneven then I will use ATP qualifiers at the weekends. Only as a last resort will there be challenger matches, so I look forward to you playing again on Saturday!

It's late and I have to be up early so no standings tonight but basically only Bjorki (2), rvugt (1) and Dudisela75 (1) have any kind of streak going. The rest of us are on 0 :lol:

Tuesday's Match

26 April 2011

Monaco v Lopez

Please post picks before 14:00 CEST.

I had intended on updating the standings tonight, however something has come up. I will update the standings tomorrow.

Due to the increasing amount of time the game is taking me to run (in terms of choosing which matches to use), from now on there is likely to be only 1 match per day to choose from.

For a couple of days I thought I had begun to make the game too easy to play, but then Kavcic rolled Mello in straights :lol:

I am proposing a bit of a change in the game. As the game is quite hard (everyone combined has a correct pick percentage of 45% :tape:) my suggestion would be to break the game down into weekly contests, running Monday to Sunday. In that 7 day period whoever had the longest streak would be crowned that week's champion. To qualify you must send at least 4 picks a week. And rather than post your picks in the thread, you would PM me your picks so no other player would see them, and therefore they wouldn't be able to predict tactically just to win! Let me know what you think.

Yes that's a better idea, but I think 4 is very easy to get

Try it out and see how it goes, that's how these games develop :)

There's a similar game to this on another forum, you get points as well, like the PAW points!

Do you mean getting 4 straight correct picks is easy? Because only you and Cheeky Chick have managed that so far :lol: 4 would be the minimum needed to be included that week just so it involves the most amount of players

It sounds like a good idea. In this way there is a more clear goal to the competition! We might change the period of picking into somewhat longer periods, but starting with a week sounds nice!

no I mean that it's easy to get 4 right picks in a period of one week. Me and Cheeky Chick got 4 straight in 4 consecutive days , but I believe it's way more easier to get 4 straight picks in 7 days

What I'm suggesting is a minimum of 4 picks sent, whether right or wrong, as someone could get 1 pick correct and then sit at the top of the standings because everyone else picked just 1 match wrong.

I would need to brush up on my Excel knowledge, but how about having rolling standings? So each day your pick from say 7 days ago (whether right or wrong) "falls off" your standings and is replaced by your latest pick?

Sorry, don't like the new idea. I'm only playing this because it's so simple and just takes a few seconds when I happen to notice it. Make it more complex and it will be competing with the other games on the forum.

But, on the other hand, the way is has worked now is fine as well. Just picking every day and see who is the best picker! But I think you should change the order of your table, because the best picker is the one with the longest streak, right? Not the one with the longest current streak!
And after a little bit of thinking, I would suggest to start over every month or so, a week is too short. So who is the best in one month, wins that month. And the 10 winners of the months compete in the Masters tournament in London! ;)

TWS Rule Change

From Monday 2nd May, the format of the game will change ever so slightly. The game will be broken down into 10 day mini competitions. To qualify you must send 5 total picks - this is to prevent players getting 1 pick correct and then sitting at the top of the standings for the remainder of the competition. And rather than post your picks in the thread, you must PM me your picks so no other player can see them, and therefore they won't be able to predict tactically just to win!

Any correct pick streaks running after the end of Sunday’s play will be carried over.

Please note this is a trial - the idea is to make the game more fun - if there is lots of negative feedback then the game will return to it's original format.
