This is our thread for the US Open week. I´m gonna post the draw now, and the ranking as soon as it is released tomorrow morning. Remember that:

1. This last week was a TEST WEEK. As I said before, none of its results will be counted this time. From now on, the points are gonna be added and you account balance is gonna be controled. We are starting it all over again with $12000.

2. Dead line for team entries on my private message box is Tuesday midnight EST (New York time). Check time zones at www.worldtime.com, our main sponsor :)o ;))

3. Your team will start from zero as well, so you dont need to sell anyone now. Just start it all over again. :D

4. The new rule is aplicable: Every one of us will have the option to chose ONE player outside the top 50. It can be any player, (with a ranking o course. :p) but ONLY ONE.

5. This week, ALL TEAMS SHOULD BE SENT THROUGH PM TO ME. From next week of play on, Rebecca will help. :D

Just another ps: you can send your team at any time untill Tuesday midnight EST.
I suggest that you take use of the time, since all the first round matches will be done by that time. So the choices can get a lot easier.
Also, as this week is the US Open and some people are travelling to go there, I wont be that BAD this time. I will take last week´s teams (is they fit budget) from the ones who dont send their teams untill the deadline.

Feel free to add anything if you have any comment. Thanks :wavey:

Im in :wavey:
Well, I dont want to be rude. In fact, you will play the game. BUT, as I WROTE BEFORE, you have to remember we are PEOPLE and not a database here. Its not as simple as coming in the thread, posting IM IN and sending me a team. As Rebecca pointed in some other thread, we are only two (and this week shes in the US Open and Im working alone) and we actually have lives. So we cant handle MANY people playing.
Just for the record, in the future people interested in playing should be at least asking to play, and not WARNING us they are in. The end will be the same and we will try to make everyone´s way into the game, but the way you talk makes a huge difference.
Thanks for the attention, and PLEASE READ THE RULES. :wavey:

Yes, anyone can change their teams untill the deadline. I will consider only the last pm with a team. I wont even read the others. :p
You can try and see with your pm tracking. The only pm I read was Niminator´s and that´s because it was an accident. Sorry. I opened but didnt read. :D
