Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!
Playing is simple: over the course of the tournament choose any 7
matches from the Group stages, Semi-Final and Final, 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.
The ATP World Tour Finals is open to the top 16 ranked players in the PAW Champions Race after the last ATP tournament of the year (MS Paris). Players ranked 17, 18 and 19 in the Champions Race will be ALT's 1, 2 and 3, and will be used in case one of the top 16 ranked players fails to play the tournament.
A qualified player who has not posted any picks before the start time of the first match of the final day of Group matches will be considered as a 'no-show' and will be replaced by an Alternate. Alternate players may post their PAW picks until it is determined that they cannot play the tournament.
Tie Break Rules
In case several players have the same number of points, the following rules will be used to determine their final position:-
1. The greater number of correct picks.
If there is still a tie then:
2. The greater points of a single pick.
If there is still a tie then the greater second-best pick and so on.
No pick will be considered better than 0 points.
3. Champions Race ranking.
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 7)
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 7 picks
throughout the whole tournament.
