If time zones are problems, one can choose to play whichever tournament they want in a given week to try to avoid the time zone or simply skip that tournament.

For example,
1. Hold tournaments in both Doha and Bogota,
2. Players choose to participate in 1 of the 2 tournaments,
3. Players are not allowed to play both tournaments
This wouldn't make a difference, because Doha and Bogota are very different in terms of points you can win at each; also, the main issue is the fact that about half of all Premier events are held in or very close to Europe and they provide the chance to win the most points, or miss out on a lot of points.

But as Sam noticed well, since we allow tipping per round now, I wonder if this is even an issue anymore.

Re: discussion over 2012 tipping calendar

I don't have a problem with the time zones, you just need to adjust!!... It was only my first season of tipping this year. But i really liked the way it was run. And dont really think that there should be any changes from how it was done this year. Except for ma re's suggest of extending the points for the 8th-12th placed getters! i think thats a great idea

Re: discussion over 2012 tipping calendar

I dont consider time zone as a issue...
But what I think is that we should have as many tournament as possible to provide more variety for a player to choose to play, some players might want to me a MM queen to qualify for Bali, especially at the end of the year, but I think it might not be practical because we may not have enough managers and players and so on...

Re: discussion over 2012 tipping calendar

Maybe I'm too traditional, but I think the old calendar was good. And we should keep the same calendar next year.

The Brainless Pusher
Ernests Gulbis, Marin Cilic, John Isner
Gilles Simon, Nicolas Almagro, Tommy Haas, Jack Sock
Kimiko Date Krumm, Tomas Berdych, Michail Youzhny, Daniel Brands

Well, it seems like everything will stay pretty much the same so you don't have to worry

HOWEVER... I've noticed in this early version of 2012 calendar, that Birmingham is the only IS event which will be played alone, as if, the only event of it's week, while other IS events are either played simultaniously with a Premier or with another IS tournament.

This brings out a question - should we stick to the old rules and settle for just 8 IS events next year, or should we play all 15 but allow players to pick just one to participate in during those 7 weeks which hold 2 IS events each. This would require 7 additional managers, but I think it could be arranged.

Re: discussion over 2012 tipping calendar

I'm with Beesley.
What we had this year was fine by me.
But I don't object to shifts from one tourney to another one if on the same week.

Re: discussion over 2012 tipping calendar

OK then, we'll leave everything as it was so far, but no moderator should complain about a player posting per round instead of per day, or even worse, forbid it. Btw, 2012 calendar is officially out, so our tipping 2012 calendar thread will be open in a matter of hours.
