Shanghai Masters 'Battle of the Boards' pick 'em contest

10-11-2009, 12:31 AM
The SHANGHAI MASTERS 'BATTLE OF THE BOARDS' PICK 'EM contest is open for entries at

Entries will close at 06.00 GMT / 08.00 CET / 02.00 am US EDT on SUNDAY - apologies for the late notice, though those who you who registered to be kept informed by email should have got an email about 10 hours ago.

The competition works like FITD on here or the ATP Bracket Challenge (so you can enter in a couple of minutes by re-using your picks for either of those contests) but with a different scoring system (which balances the effects of rounds a bit more) and a team element - as well as playing for the individual title, you can compete against,,,, etc, to help MTF to win the team title too.

There is also a Hall of Fame and an overall year-round ranking system - your best 7 scores from up to 9 tournaments count, with slam scores allowed to count twice, so you actually end up counting 7 scores from 13.

Derevko was one of MTF's big gainers in the overall rankings after the USO, moving up 119 places into the top 100 at WR 91. The other was FERNET, up 197 to WR 211.

You already have three entrants for Shanghai and you need at least two more for MTF to end up with a full team.

Good luck!
