Here's what YOU need to know:

1) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments. Simply post your picks in the thread. You may play more than one event per week.

2) To play this game, you will post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

3) You must post your full prediction before the first ball of the first main draw match is struck.

4) Every player can replace his/her draw only once per tournament whatever the reason of replacement.
If you are changing picks, you must post your picks in a new post. No editing posts under any circumstances.

5) As far as qualifiers are concerned, you may post just "Q" in you predictions if you wish to make them before the qualifiers are placed, or you may wait until they are placed to predict, but remember that you must post before the first match begins. If two qualifiers play each other, and you are predicting before they are placed, you must predict based on their placement in the draw. For instance, you may say "Qualifier 1" which would indicate a prediction that the qualifier who is listed first in the draw would win, or you may say "Qualifier 2" which means that you predict the other qualifier to win.
If you didn't determine Qualifier 1 or 2, your pick will not be counted.

6) If a player receives a bye, you do not get points for predicting them into the second round.

7) Scoring goes as follows:
The points you receive will be based on the round points for the tournament. For each player you predict correctly into the second round, you receive the round points for a first round victory, and so on.

8) The tiebreak rule is to go by how many correct picks the players had in each round, (for example)
1. # of correct Final picks
2. # of correct SF picks
3. # of correct QF picks
4. # of correct R16 picks, etc.
and if the players are still tied after counting each round, they will remain tied.

9) PLEASE REMEMBER:
-When you post your picks, please list ONLY the winners of each round. DO NOT have 'Player A d. Player B' as it will make the manager's job (me) much easier
-Also, please do not use smilies in your picks, there is really no need for it.

For more info, please feel free to visit the FITD forum in the games section.

Re: Houston FITD 2014 (A little bit of an early release, but who cares!)

How To Submit Your Picks


I will not be as strict as other FITD managers about spaces or spelling mistakes, but there ARE a few things I would like you ALL to follow.

1) At least make an effort to try to minimize the amount of spelling errors. Think about it this way, if everybody made 2 spelling errors that could be over 140 names I would need to go through.

2) Spaces between rounds do not bother me at all. Again though, try not to.

3) When I make FITD picks I tend to either print out the draw off the ATP website or use the draw that the manager provides. It's a little easier than to keep flipping through tabs.

4) In a case where two qualifiers play each other, please specify which qualifier you want to win. 'Qualifier 1 or Q1' If you want a qualifier to beat a player that got put in the main draw, you can just write 'Qualifier or Q'

5) It's my tenth FITD management and if I make a mistake PM me and let me know. Please do not crowd up the thread with complaints. Thanks!

Here is a sample of what your picks should look like just in case your new to the game:

Code:
ROUND 1
Ramos
Clezar
Ward
Ungur
Haider-Maurer
Zverev
Starace
Qualifier

Player Color Coding

Just for fun each player from the main draw will have their own color. You will see these colors under your finalist pick and winner picks on the standings.



Also, there will be color codes for the most points in that round, the person who moved up on the standings the most after one round (obviously you won't move up before round 1 so starting at round 2 that will happen). There will also be a color coding for worst player in the round.

UPDATES ON ENTRY LIST
Janko Tipsarevic OUT
Dustin Brown IN
Pablo Cuevas OUT
Jack Sock IN
Bradley Klahn OUT
Denis Kudla IN
Alejandro Falla OUT
Michael Russell IN
Dustin Brown will take Janko Tipsarevic's color.
Jack Sock will take Pablo Cuevas' color.
Denis Kudla will take Bradley Klahn's color.
Michael Russell will take Alejandro Falla's color.

You may post your predictions when the draw comes out!!! :wavey:

Good Luck!! BMT360



STATS​

There is no mistake with the stats. So if some of the calculations are wrong it's because bck.adi had 9 second rounders instead of 8. I PMed him/her to try to get him/her to change it. I got no response so the draw stays the same.


Qualifiers added!!
